I do the bulk of my grocery shopping at Costco and also anything else I need that they might have! I needed a Puddle Jumper for my kiddo this summer, they had one on sale for $12. My husband needed new khakis for work, boom, $19.99 later we had a nice pair! Can’t beat most prices at good old Costco! Here are some items I frequently get at Costco that make my heart soar when I think of what a good deal I’m getting. Beverly Goldberg would be proud. 🙂
- Rotisserie Chickens-I’ll admit it. I’m in love with Costco’s rotisserie chickens. What’s funny is when I was younger, I would groan when my mom served us one for dinner. Now that I am a mom, I GET IT! So easy, so cheap, so many different ways to eat one! $5 for a large chicken! You can read how I buy multiple chickens to shred and freeze here.
- Honey-My husband and daughter have honey on their yogurt multiple times a week, plus I use it for my favorite sweet and sour chicken recipe. I cringe when I see how expensive honey is at other stores, knowing I can get an 80 oz bottle for just $11.99! Warning: It is a little more pricey online.
- Yogurt-As mentioned above, we go through a lot of yogurt. I buy 2 boxes of 2 tubs each month. Each tub is 32 oz and costs only $2.90. (You buy 2 for $5.79 at Costco.) Available in-store only.
- Clothes-I unashamedly buy clothes at Costco. My only complaint is that sometimes they are limited on sizes. I mean 40 pairs of size 2 but no 6s?! Come on now! Here are some great deals I’ve found:
- Carter’s baby zip-up PJs for just $7.49 (in-store).
- Jessica Simpson capris for $15 (on sale, in-store).
- Sundress-My sister bought her’s early in the summer for $20 (amazing deal for a dress!), but I got one later in the summer for JUST $10. I literally got 3 complements on this dress in a single shopping trip one day. And yes, I told everyone it was from Costco and that I got it for $10 (in-store)!
- Hillshire Farm Naturals Turkey Breast-Baby D loves turkey, but her pediatrician recommended we find nitrate free turkey for her. They have them everywhere now, but not at this price-$9.59 ($6.59 on sale) for 3-11oz packages!
- Coffee-My hubby drinks A LOT of coffee and doesn’t like the cheap “cardboard” coffee. Kirkland’s House Blend has the taste he likes for the price I like-2 pounds of whole beans for $9.99.
- Bread-Between lunches, french toast freezer meals, and just toast for breakfast, we eat a lot of toast! Our go-to breads are:
- Sacramento Baking Company Sourdough Bread-2 for $4.99
- Orowheat 100% Whole Wheat- 2 for $5.79
- Toothpaste-I like to stock up on Crest Complete Extra Whitening Plus Scope Toothpaste when it goes on sale. 5 tubes of 8.2 oz for $12.99 is an okay price, but I wait until it goes on sale for $8.99 to buy.
- Shampoo-I’m not picky when it comes to shampoo. I haven’t seen enough of a difference between semi-cheap and expensive shampoos to feel it’s worth it. Whatever is on sale, I get. This is usually Pantene Advanced Care Shampoo and Conditioner ($9.99 for a 38.2oz bottle). It’s often on sale for $2.50 off per bottle, so stock up!
- Vitamins-Costco’s vitamins go on sale quite frequently, so I always stock up when I can get a good deal. My husband and I like their Adult Multivitamin Gummies ($12.49 for two bottles, 160 dummies in each) and Kirkland Aller-Tec pills ($14.99 for 365 pills, $10.99 on sale).
