Broke? Eat lunch at Costco!

You gotta love cheap prices, right? Someday my future fiancé will buy my engagement ring from Costco and this bugetologist will know he’s the one because he’s frugal and reasonable.

I remember my first adult purchase was a Costco membership card. I paid $55 for it for the year. They even took my picture and everything. But after a few months, I realized I wasn’t using it and so, in defeat, I returned it like a sucker. I got the money back and quickly my spirits were lifted as I thought about how many Costco hotdogs I could now buy.

Anyway, Costco, like Jack in the Box offers one option that is so cheap this budgetologist takes advantage of it on the regular.

Honestly, tho. A dolla fiddy for a hot dog AND a coke. That’s a frugal lady’s dream. You can even upgrade it to the coveted polish sausage for the SAME DAMN PRICE!

Now remember, when you’re at the condiments portion of the transaction, stock up on that shit! Get enough ketchup, mustard and onions to last the next few weeks. You can then use that to make your own hotdogs at home, put it in deviled eggs, a burger, whatever your heart desires.

In that way you’re saving money on condiments while getting a cheap ass meal at the same time. Score!
