Imagine an expert consumer who is highly skilled at shopping and getting good deals. A consummate consumer! You can also remember the root words to remember. Both “consummate” and “summit” have the root word “summus” that is Latin for “summit” – the highest point. Imagine a consummate climber who has reached the summit of Mount Everest!
