Warehouse clubs offer great prices on items in bulk! But if you’re not able to use a perishable item, it might make more sense to buy those items from the local grocery or discount store.
Be sure to look for deals from Groupon, LivingSocial, Zulily, etc, as they’ll usually have an offer for free coupons when you renew (for instance, right now there’s an offer out, for the regular price of membership at Costco, you can also get free coupons for a rotisserie chicken, a 48 pack of batteries, and a case of water).
Also, check out your newspaper coupons, as there are often coupons for free trial memberships.
