Best and Worst Deals at Costco PDF Print E-mail

By Melissa Tosetti

A membership to Costco can be one of the greatest money saving tools in your repetoire.  As a family of three, we purchase approximately 1/3 of our groceries at the big box store. 

The key to places like Costco, BJ's and Sam's Club is to know what to buy and what to leave at the store.

MSN put together a fantastic article on that very topic titled: 10 Best and Worst Deals at Costco.  It's worth the read!

When To Buy Used? PDF Print E-mail
By Melissa Tosetti
 
We all know that on average, new cars lose value 60 seconds after they drive off the lot. According to Edmunds, in that one minute, a $29,873 car drops in value by $2,559.  That's a vacation to Disneyland for a family of four!
 
But cars aren't the only thing worth buying used.  The San Francisco Chronicle's article 15 Things You're Better Off Buying Used, offers a valuable rule of thumb for used purchases. 
 
I'm especially a fan of purchasing used... 
  • Kid's Clothes
  • DVDs and Video Games
  • Books 

The article specifies text books, but buying used books overall is my rule of thumb.  I say that even though I'm an author who receives royalties on just the first purchase of Living The Savvy Life

Another item I've become fond of purchasing used is jewelry.  I love antique jewelry and have found gorgeous pieces at antique stores for a fraction of what I can purchase new.  To qualify, I do still buy new pieces if I really fall in love with them, but the hunt for affordable antique items is half the fun!
