BIG vs Little

As many of you may have the Big Club Cards, such as Sams and Costco, thinking buying in bulk is the only way to go, this is a huge misconception for many reasons, these stores do not accept coupons, so there is one right there, and even if you have a very large family you will never use a gallon of salad dressing before it goes bad, so there was a big waste of money ! Many manufacturers coupons are for $1 off any size, so if you have a $1 off for instance Franks Red Hot sauce any size, you go to the store and you see you have several options, a 32 oz for about $3.69, a 20 oz for $2.69 and a 6 oz for $0.99, I only see the free purchase here, do you ? buy the 6 oz for $0.99 and use you $1 coupon, hence...FREE, this applies to many products out there, such as Salad Dressings, Condiments, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Pet Foods and much more, and PLEASE don't forget to always check the Travel sections at your stores, the same thing applies there, if it's little, it's probably gonna be free :) So remember, read your coupon, if there is no size limitations you will always find that item free, even better if you can stack this with another store coupon, such as Target, CVS and Walgreens, this can make for a sweet little Money Maker.

  1. I know what you mean. People always think they are getting a better deal on BULK items but BULK iTEM Places DON"T TAKE COUPONS then u r not saving money. I am like you I always check my coupons for size limitations, IF none then i get the smallest size item to pay the least out of pocket (OOP). Alot of us get mutliple Newspapers so that means Multiple same coupon!
