My parents have a membership and I love tagging along to buy a couple things here and there. I don't have my own membership because most of my groceries need to be purchased in smaller quantities for our little family. However, I am itching to go again and get some huge things of vinegar for cleaning.
The problem: much of what they sell is individually packaged and this goes against my goal of reducing waste in our household. For example I have this love for Carnation Instant Breakfast and I always ALMOST buy it there but each serving is individually packaged so I always put it back.
So if you shop at Costco, do you just not buy the things that are individually packaged or do you figure the savings for your family is worth it?
