Warehouse club memberships are usually presented as a frugal choice for everyone. Joining Costco, Sam’s Club, or BJ’s is always the smart choice, but is it really? Can you save money with it? Can everyone find it worthwhile for their budget.
I decided to share my take on our Costco membership and how it has worked out for us. Maybe it can help you to decide if a warehouse club is the right choice for you.
Types of Membership
One of the first things you have to decide with Costco is the which membership you want to sign up for.
Being a member of Costco is a bit more expensive than other clubs.
Upfront cost is just one factor in deciding what to get. It’s more important to look at the overall value of what you’re getting.
