Re: saving money in Hawaii?
After being here almost 1.5 years
Have both Costco and SAMs. I shop both and each has cheaper or better items. 75% of everything comes from these 2.
Times sale items are usually the cheapest(I shop ads)
Don Quixote has a farmers market section with local produce that's well priced everyday.
Local Swap meet by the mall has a farmers market and fish market shop around between the booths.
Walmart and target are also very competively priced. They are both expanding their refer sections. The fresh isn't rock bottom but pretty competitive and convenient.
