Things Not to Buy at Costco

Found an article on Yahoo! Finance,  4 Things Not to Buy at Costco.  It is talking about US Costco, but I think some of them are relevant to us down under as well.

Things Not to Buy:

  1. Designer's Clothes
  2. Imported Shrimps
  3. Sheets and Towels
  4. 4-kg of Oranges


Things You Should Buy:


  1. Chocolate Truffle
  2. Eyeglasses
  3. Laptops
  4. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

In my opinion, 

Not to Buy:
  1. Designer's Clothes - we may get some designer's clothes that we cannot get anywhere.
  2. Imported Shrimps - Australian product is better.
  3. Sheets and Towels - Target may have cheaper product, but I feel quality of Costco product is better.
  4. 4-kg of Oranges - I hardly get any fruit in Costco.  Bulk size is not for me.  Watermelon is great at Costco though.
Do Buy:
  1. Chocolate Truffle - This is great product with great price.
  2. Eyeglasses - Not sure yet.
  3. Laptops - I think you can get better value from other shops.
  4. Extra Virgin Olive Oil - I will try this out myself.
