As a card carrying member of BJ's Warehouse, I know that I need to be careful about what I choose to buy in bulk because I may just be getting ripped off. I also know that buying certain things in bulk can be both a life saver and a money saver. So, here are the tricks of the trade.
Warehouse Clubs Best Buys:
- Over the Counter Drugs
- Wine, Liquor and Beer
- Office Supplies
- Dry Grocery Items/Nonperishable Items
Warehouse Clubs Worst Buys:
- Toilet Paper
- Holiday Promotions
- Nonbulk Items
I also note that I have purchased some high-end items from warehouse clubs. For example, I purchased my first Movado from BJ's for $250. I recently saw Bottega Veneta bags there as well. I didn't check the price because I'm not shopping for a while, but it's worth a peek if you are in the market for a high-end bag.
