Shopping at a warehouse club, such as Costco, Sam’s Club or BJ’s Wholesale, is a great way to save money. These bulk-goods stores offer low per-unit prices on many things they sell. Don’t be afraid to stock up on the best bargains at warehouse clubs including batteries, meats and wines.

However, it’s easy to make costly mistakes when shopping at warehouse clubs. Perhaps the biggest miscalculation: Assuming the club price is the best price on every item. That’s not the case. Another blunder made by club shoppers is buying things they don’t need because the price is “too good to pass up.” Unnecessary spending can deal a blow to any budget. Plus, you should always shop with a list to avoid impulse purchases, which can be whoppers at warehouse clubs.

When making your warehouse-club shopping list, keep these items off it. You can find them cheaper elsewhere:

  • Books and DVDs
  • Canned goods
  • Clothing and shoes
  • Condiments
  • Cooking oils
  • Electronics
  • Generic diapers
