Many of the items on this list aren’t good buys because they’ll go bad before you get your money’s worth. Books are a different story. You should skip books at the warehouse store because you can probably find them cheaper at Amazon.

Better yet, don’t buy books at all. Switch to e-books, and you will find plenty of no-cost options, as we illustrate in “11 Places to Find Free E-Books.”

Don’t own an e-reader? You don’t need one. See “This Trick Lets You Read E-Books Without an E-Reader.”
