A few weeks ago I told you all about why I shop at Costco and that I wanted to share what I buy when I shop there. Because Costco is a membership wholesaler – meaning you have to purchase an annual membership in order to take advantage of shopping at their stores and enjoying their low prices – people often want to know what products Costco carries before they shell out the membership fee. So I thought I’d let you know what products my family enjoys.
I usually shop at Costco once a month. Technically, my last “Costco Week” was in June and as you can see this week’s shopping trip also fell in the month of June; but that is just because the grocery budget worked out that way this month. This month, I did not buy much fresh produce or meat, which I do buy at Costco often. That is because I just bought a big box o’ meat for my husband for Father’s Day, so we are stocked up on high quality ethically farmed meat for a good long time. Also, we are eating what we grow and shopping at the Farmer’s Market for fresh produce. I don’t get the same things each month – as you’ll see as I post my monthly haul. I usually choose a couple of things to stock up on (like instant mac and cheese this month, organic tomato sauce last month).
So here is what I bought this month:
40 oz (2.5 lb) dried organic figs — $10.99
This are a great snack for when you crave something sweet.
12 pack of Annie’s macaroni and cheese — $12.59
If I’m going to make instant mac and cheese, I might as well choose organic. This 12 pack will last us a few months.
16 oz. Organic mixed greens and spinach blend — $4.49
This is one type of produce I almost always buy at Costco. The price is great, the greens are pre-washed and stay fresh for a long time, and my family is far more likely to eat salad if it is quick and easy to make.
16 pack individual servings of organic hommus — $5.79
I. Love. Hummus.
38 oz. (2 lb 6 oz) Organic spinach and cheese ravioli — $10.99
This comes divided into two packs and one pack is enough for my family. These are seriously so good. They don’t even need sauce. You can freeze them too.
