Known for offering low-cost products in bulk, Costco is a great place for those who want to scrimp and save. But it can be a complete money sink if you’re an indiscriminate shopper. Here is a list of 15 items you should buy and 15 you should avoid at Costco. Read on to save more bucks!

2Avoid: Fresh Produce

Some of you might question it: “Why not? The produce is just so cheap!” Well, it’s not because of quality but quantity. Unless you’re feeding an army every day, or stocking up for a banquet, buying lots of fresh fruits and vegetables from Costco is no better than purchasing compost. The quantities that perishable produce is sold in are too large for most households, and you’d be better off buying smaller packaged fresh foodstuffs at the supermarket instead.
