You might’ve noticed the Kirkland brand dominating the aisles at Costco. And for good reason! The budget-friendly label is a household staple with many shoppers. Yahoo! Finance highlighted five of Kirkland’s best value products with a little help from Samantha.

“Consider Costco’s 180-count Kirkland Signature Daily Facial Towelettes for $19.99,” she noted. “Amazon Basics has an alternative—150-count makeup remover wipes for $20.04.”

“Not only are you paying a bit more for Amazon’s option,” she added, “but you’re also getting less product than you would by purchasing this item at Costco.”

Enough said.

“Target is selling their beach towels in a two-pack for $10,” she added. “When comparing the two big-box stores, Walmart’s offer will save you a few bucks when buying in quantities of four.”

The Case Against Bulk Groceries: When Smaller Portions Save You Money (Source: NewsBreak)

Man walking down Walmart store aisles.

Buying in bulk doesn’t always save you the most money. Samantha told NewsBreak’s audience what to look for when shopping—and gave a mini math lesson in the process.

“Calculate the cost per unit by dividing quality of the item by its price,” she instructed. “If you see a value pack of an item on your shopping list, divide the price of the value pack by the number of items it contains in order to determine the cost per unit.”
