So today I went went into a Costco store as I heard there was a good deal on a specific item that a person I knew was looking for. Since the item was sold out and we were there I decided to walk around the place. Now I don’t normally shop here so when it comes to prices I was pretty much comparing it to what I know I usually pay at other places.
Interestingly enough, for the most part the prices seemed so much higher at least when it came to basic grocery items. The person I was with was buying some items that of course was in bulk and he was saying how it was such a good deal as he got so much for the price. I was then thinking how if all you do is shop at the same place each time it kind of limits your ability to find a good deal as your idea of a good price is based on what that company normally charges.
This is why many times I often look at things like flyers from so many different companies or occasionally visit smaller stores. It gives you a better perspective on what is a good deal that is not solely based on what the company tells you. Even you need to keep your favorite businesses on its toes in terms of having them offer you the best prices possible.
