Not John Chow Saves by Not Spending – Part 2 – Costco

Posted by | March 10, 2014 .

I usually go to Costco for cheap gas. Like Sam’s Club, Costco has some great prices.

If you buy enough gas and other bulk items, Coscto can be worth the cost of membership:


I also save money at Costco by buying my lunch there.  They have several options for a cheap lunch.  One of my favorites is the Polish Sausage (or hot dog) and a Drink for $1.50.  I usually add a desert item of a Churro (sugary pastry) for $1.00 or Berry Sundae for $1.65.

There are many other choices as well which include sandwiches or pizza slices that are fairly cheap as well.  Again, my goal is to spend less than five dollars on lunch each day.

The point is that the less money you spend on eating out, the more money you have for other things. Spending less will improve you financial status in the long run. The sooner you curb your spending, the sooner you will reap the benefits.

    I have a fixed budget for eating out and it is usually when I go to the movie once or twice a month. I watch the movie, then eat out for dinner and that’s about it. Of course, I do order a pizza once a month also but that’s about it. As a result, my monthly eating out costs don’t run too high.

    Well, sure it’s cheap and tasty, I love it too, but… after I found out the fat it contains…

    33g of fats. 13g are saturated, I wonder what the rest 20g are. or is… then it has 11g of sugar, + a soft drink of about 32oz, that’s roughly another 30g of sugar per cup. If you eat this for lunch everday and don’t exercise everyday, you’ll save a lot of money now, but is your health also getting a discount?

    Enjoy in moderation.

    What you don’t know, can hurt you.

    Perhaps not the healthest but, it is a common one. If you are going to eat pizza or hot dogs, you should at least not pay too much for them.

    Looks like the menu is not a healthy based one. Cheap can also mean cheap quality food too.
