What's your take on the stores like CostCo or BJ's? Do you tend to buy way more than you need when you go? I once tried, mistakenly, to buy one tomato, and the lady at checkout said to me, "oh honey you need to buy the whole box, this is CostCo". Ooops.

I don't generally shop in bulk, as it is only for me and sometimes me and my husband (he works away a lot).
However, for veg and meat, if I see a big bag at a bargain price, I may buy it, and cook & freeze it (if it is a type of vegetable or cut of meat that lends itself to that). It will not go to waste, and I will eventually use it.
With fruit I try not to buy a large quantity, as there is not much scope for preserving it long-term (I'm not one to make preserves, chutney, etc.).
