A Costco just opened up in our area a few weeks ago. I had debated whether we’d join, mostly because I wasn’t sure that it would be worth the price of membership. Well, a great Living Social offer was all it took to get me to buy the membership and off I went to Costco.
My biggest question was whether we would find the kinds of foods and other items that we already use for prices that are as good or better than what we already pay. I was especially curious about what organic items would be available there.
Well, I just made my second visit to the new store and I thought I’d report to you what I have already decided are my must-buy items at Costco.
1. Annie’s Organic Mac and Cheese
My daughter loves Annie’s Mac and Cheese. We generally pay about $2.00 per box unless we can get it on sale. The best price I’ve ever gotten on it was about $1.67 (at a Whole Foods 3 for $5 sale). Well, Costco sells a 15 box package for $15.99! That’s about $1.07 per box! Yep, that’s a keeper!
2. Organic Ground Beef
The price of beef has gone up in the last year or so. And, it has been more and more difficult for us to be able to stock up on beef and chicken, like we used to when we could get great deals at our local grocery store. Costco’s regular price on ground beef ($4.50/lb) is better than the sale price we get at our local grocery store.
3. Organic Maple Syrup
It’s the best tasting and best-for-you sweetener available. So, we have enjoyed having it around. I have ordered it online to keep the price down. But, the Costco price of $13.59 for 33oz is still $3-$4 cheaper than the best price I found online.
4. Organic Spaghetti Sauce
The organic spaghetti sauce I have been buying sells for $2.99 per 26oz (that’s about $0.12/oz). It wasn’t a bad price at all. However, this three-pack of 32 oz jars at Costco costs $8.99. That breaks down to about $0.09/oz. Nothing wrong with getting a better deal, right?
5. Organic Coconut Oil
I usually buy our coconut oil online simply because it’s so much more expensive at our local stores. But, that’s changing. The best deal on coconut oil now is at Costco. A 54 oz container of coconut oil costs $16.59. Yes, I bought one; and, yes, I’ll be back for more when we need it.
What are your favorite Costco deals?
