I have always loved shopping at Costco. It's true that sometimes you can go crazy and spend way more money than you intend to but there are a lot of products that are amazing deals and very high quality. I have especially noticed this since moving to California where grocery prices are through the roof.
These are a few of my favorite Costco finds.
Kirkland Multigrain Bread - This is my all time favorite bread. It is healthy yet soft and 100% whole grain. It is my favorite for for sandwiches or toast. This comes in a 2 pack for about $4.50 I keep one loaf in the fridge and toss the other in the freezer.
Vanilla Extract - I can always tell the difference in my baking when I use this product. It is a great price for being such a high quality product. Have I mentioned how amazing it smells? This is about $8 for a 16oz bottle compared to a lot of other brands that sell for about $5 for 2 oz.
TruRoots Organic Quinoa - The price of quinoa has sky rocketed in the last few years due to high demand but this is about $2 a pound less than any other retailer in my area. Most recently this sells for $5 a pound for a 4lb bag.
Pesto Sauce - This is a recent discovery of mine and I can't get over how yummy it is. It is perfect on a sandwich, mixed with pasta, added to pizza, or just on a piece of bread. Given my success rate of keeping basil plants alive this is a great bang for your buck. Previously I was buying basil plants for about $4 and they would always die within 2 weeks. At around $9 for this large bottle it is definitely going to last me a lot longer!
Kirkland Kitchen Garbage Bags - These last forever! There's nothing worse than running out of garbage bags so I love buying these 200ct boxes for around $18.
Vitamins/OTC Medicine - I always load up on vitamins and OTC drugs like ibuprofen here. These can be super expensive at many stores but can be found for about a penny per pill at Costco.
Rotisserie Chicken - It is a no brainer how delicious these are. There is so much meat and they taste much better than grocery store chickens in my opinion. I also love using the leftovers for chicken soup the next day!
Household Surface Wipes - I love the Kirkland brand since they are significantly cheaper than name brand but I haven't seen them lately. I love these since I just cannot use dish rags or sponges without getting grossed out so these are always a staple in our house.
Organic Spinach - I buy the 1lb box of spinach and go crazy for about a week putting spinach in everything and then freeze the leftovers for smoothies. I don't buy organic everything but try to go organic with leafy greens when I can. This is a great buy at around $3 a lb.
Milk - This is a no brainer. This is always significantly cheaper than other stores. My husband's favorite food is cereal so we go through a lot of milk!
Frozen Fruit- I go through a ton of this for green smoothies. Especially once the farmer's markets have ended and gone are the days of huge flats of berries for $5. Always delicious and great to have on hand during the winter months.
Like I said, these are just a few of our favorites. It was hard to narrow it down to 10! What are your Costco favorites?
