A Costco shopping guide for people in small homes

Cheapism Logo By Raechel Conover of Cheapism | Slide 2 of 13: Instead of shopping solo, you can split up those bulk items that come in large packages with a friend or family member that doesn't live with you. For example, if you don't have room to store 30 rolls of toilet paper, split the cost and the pack with your shopping partner. Fifteen rolls are much easier to store, and you still save money: 30 rolls of Costco's Kirkland brand bath tissue is 67 cents a roll compared with 85 cents for Walmart's Great Value brand premium bath tissue, which comes in a 12-pack. (The Costco toilet paper is also a half-inch wider and has a few more sheets per roll.) Related: How Non-Members Can Shop at Costco
