What are your top “good buys” at Costco?
I get this question a lot, because in our area there are a lot of people who shop at Costco. One thing I have found at Costco and any other warehouse discount stores (like Sam’s) is that you must price the items out per unit. I have been very surprised to find many items, especially cleaning and paper products, to be priced higher priced than the grocery store’s everyday price.
** Costco also comes out with their store coupons each month or so. Many times they have good coupons for their meats (pork, chicken) and deli items.
I will list a few of my favorite items below, but if you have a great priced item, add it to the comments section. These prices will change, and I didn’t have all of them, but just listed the ones I remember.
