Shopping optimization

June 17, 2007 at 10:29 am | Posted in Over There | 2 Comments

You’re like me and hate to go grocery shopping every Saturday just to loose nearly half a day of your free time. This awful feeling didn’t change when I relocated to the US. I like getting things done quickly. It was time to change the strategy. Instead of buying food supplies for one week you simply increase the quantity. Just two minutes afoot away there’s the wholesale shop Costco selling huge portions of goods. Besides food and drinks you can find everyday commodities. You can even find best in German engineering products like the Kärcher cleaning equipment. I can give you two recommendations for shopping at Costco:

1. Never go there when you’re hungry. You’ll find yourself buying more than you actually need. At nearly every corner of one aisle of the warehouse there are tryouts.

2. Only buy huge amounts of food that is conserved in a way. Otherwise you’ll end up throwing things away because you couldn’t eat it before it expires.

Be prepared to easily spend $300. However, now you don’t have to go grocery shopping for the next four weeks and have time for your beloved or hobbies.

  1. You didn’t really buy this 5kg Bretzelspack, did you?

  2. Nope, it was just for documentation purposes. 🙂
