“You do wanna still compare prices. 'cause like I said, not everything is cheaper at a warehouse store and you do wanna go in there with a plan and a shopping list so that you don't buy just random stuff because it's like, oh I need this, it's a good deal, I need this. It's a good deal. That happens to me a lot.”
