Small Town Girl from Manhattan - Page 2
The mega-store is to New Yorkers what Trump Towers is to everyone else — a gleaming symbol of how other people live. Others may take that kind of abundance for granted. Not us. Buying in bulk, regardless of whether we have sufficient storage space, is like a sport. We talk about how much we save, the same way we talk about apartment square footage. Claritin D? 50 tablets for the price of 20 in a pharmacy. Ensure? 30 for the price of 12 at a supermarket. Mentos? 20 for the price of 5 at the local greengrocer. Friends of ours who live downtown actually cross the Hudson River to shop at Target in New Jersey. They've timed the distance door-to-door at around 14 minutes.
Now that Costco's here, not only can we hit the museums in the morning but we can also save 40% in the afternoon. I just love being a small town girl from Manhattan.
Deb Feyerick can't wait until the Target moves in next to Costco. This is an original post for NYC Moms Blog.
