Over the past few years, I’ve come to like Costco more and more.
The prices are good. The floors are clean. The aisles are wide. The grocery carts have side-by-side seating. The samples are free. The pizza is piping hot (10bucks for a HUGE one).
Lately, we’ve been enjoying these purchases.
Blueberries – You’d be surprised how fast we can finish one of these off. On our most recent trip, we paid $7.99 for a 32 ounce carton.
Tilapia – The tortilla-crusted kind ($13.49 for 9 fillets) is my favorite, but it does have a bit of a “kick.” Our girls prefer the basil-pesto, which is roughly the same price. Tim usually grills up the fish in our cast iron skillet. We eat it plain, rolled up with salsa in tortillas, or on top of a salad.
Ancient Grains Granola ($6.99 for two 17.6 ounce bags) – We originally discovered this item via a “free sample”…and we’ve been buying it ever since. I eat a bowl of this sans milk about 5 out of every 7 mornings of the week.
Butter – We seem to go through butter crazy-fast so buying in bulk makes sense. We usually don’t buy organic (do you?), but there is that option as well.
Peanut Butter – LOVE peanut butter. In fact, I sometimes get out a spoon and eat a heapingful as a late night snack. Don’t worry; I never double dip. The Kirkland Brand is made with only two ingredients: Dry Roasted Valencia Peanuts and Sea Salt.
Fruit Leathers – I like to throw a few of these in my backpack when we’re out and about with the girls for “emergency snacks.” When we buy at Costco, I think the price comes to roughly $.22 or $.23 a leather.
