Why We Kissed Costco Goodbye

December 18, 2014 by


This is not an anti-Costco post.

I really, really like Costco. I’ve been a member since it was called Price Club.

The thing is, though, times are tough. And things that we used to consider necessities are now viewed as luxuries.

When finances are tight, one of the best things we can do is honestly distinguishing between needs and wants. The needs stay while the wants become negotiable.

Today I have the pleasure of sharing this post at Growing Slower. Shannon’s blog is one that I have been reading for several years in an effort to live simply on a budget. I hope you’ll take a moment to hop on over to her blog where she offers tips and advice on saving money, simple living, and family life.

    Great post and a great reminder to look at what we actually spend things on as to whether they are needs or wants, such an important thing to do. Blessings

    This was excellent Heather. So many things we think we NEED that never even existed 20 years ago. During hard times, we need to let go of the extras and this article has called a spade a spade.

    Thanks for sharing this on the Art of Home-Making Mondays!

      I’m glad to hear that I am not the only one. Sometimes I feel all alone. 🙂 It’s all about keeping our eyes open for those great deals, isn’t it? Thanks so much for reading and for sharing your thoughts. Blessings.
