Wondering if a Costco membership is worth the price? Or wondering if you are really getting good deals when you shop? It can certainly be confusing to shop… you need to do quick mental math to compare bulk sizes to standard grocery sizes. I find that impossible when the store is super crowded and I am trying to get through the crowds and just get the heck out. Usually my kids are whining or poking each other and really it is all I can do to keep them happy, check off my list and not have cart rage when people stop to chat or clutter up the aisles waiting for samples. (Grab n go people, Grab n go!)
So I thought I’d make an easy guide for you with some of the best deals I find at Costco AND some of the things that I personally think are overpriced.
I have been a coupon blogger for about 5 years now and I have gone through stages of heavily using coupons and following sales in stores to just occasionally using coupons and trying to simply buy things at good prices.
At this phase of my life, I seem to have become a professional chauffeur for the kiddos in addition to my other responsibilities and so that means I need to figure out ways to save money on groceries without spending as much time cutting coupons or running to different stores. I do find myself in Costco about once every three weeks or so stocking up on things.
So this is a list that is just my opinion after watching prices as a coupon blogger for several years. You may find some slight variation in pricing at your local store.
