I'm too cheap to be frugal
My newest thing now is monitoring how long it takes us to use personal care products, toothpaste, saline, shampoo etc. The big idea is that I will figure out how much of something we need over a year and buy it all at once and hopefully at a discount for buying in bulk. I emailed Walgreens and asked if they would offer a bulk discount if I bought a case of something that is typically sold by the each, but they have declined to answer my email. I chose Walgreens because I like them and they are a block from my house which makes it remarkably convenient to stop in on the way home.
Here's where I'm too cheap to be frugal, I know I could probably get a very good deal by shopping at Costco for these items, but I too cheap to pay the $50 membership fee. I'm worried that I won't save enough money shopping there to pay for the membership. So right now I'm researching to see if there's any way I can get a free membership without much success so far. If anyone knows where I can shop in bulk without paying a membership fee, please share :)
