In New York City, everything (except your square footage) is bigger. Including your grocery bill.
And though you’re all for saving money, the bulk-buying trek to Long Island City isn’t easy with kids in tow.
Which is why you’ll love Big Box Deliveries, which brings diapers, formula, and food from Costco right to your door.
The online service is simple: Shop by room (pantry, baby’s room, home office) and load up on items for next-day delivery. Each product has a “Costco price” and an “average NYC price” that’s based on current rates at stores such as Food Emporium. If you buy 30 rolls of Charmin in NYC, you’ll spend $42.18; at Costco, only $20.19. Big Box Deliveries splits the savings, so you pay $31.19 — for a total TP savings of $11.
No schlepping. No long lines. And your monthly budget won’t get wiped out.
