Default Re: What do you buy at Costco

If anyone is really watching cost and not looking for convenience, the bags of frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts are $1.98/lb at Wal-Mart and $2.38/lb at Costco.

Default Re: What do you buy at Costco

Oh, yes, there are things that I can find cheaper at my local grocery store! (We have a local chain that's similar in price point to Aldi, but no Wal-Mart groceries.) But sometimes the quality is just better at Costco. Before we started buying grass-fed beef from a local farm, we'd buy meat from Costco simply because the volume of sales at our local warehouse (the busiest in the state) meant that they were constantly turning over stock and everything was so much fresher.

Here's an example of a Costco non-deal. Just got the email for the new month's sales. A Seagate 2TB external hard drive. Normally $85 at Costco, on sale for $65. Yet that's the same price that Amazon has, $65.

Have to comparison shop at Costco, just like anywhere else.

Default Re: What do you buy at Costco

I buy many things you buy.

Organic spinach (used to be $3.69 a lb, now it's $3.99 - still a great deal)
Kalamata olives
Coconut oil (WAY cheaper than anywhere else)
Plainville deli turkey (the container is now pre-portions into 2-3 servings so you don't have to freeze in portions, ingredients are turkey water sea salt - that's it)
Avocados (unless they're cheaper at Aldi)
Various cheeses and yogurts that are on sale
Sardines (wild caught, skinless boneless)
Huge pack of yeast for less than $5

The main thing I recommend is really looking thoroughly at the sale flyer, especially for shelf-stable stuff. Sometimes the deals are REALLY good. The 6-pack of super high quality sardines are usually $9.99. They go on sale twice a year for $6.99, and I stock up. I got a 32 oz container of full fat greek yogurt recently for 99 cents!

They do have a great return policy. Aldi is better. But at Costco, you don't need a receipt or even the item if it's produce. I've brought in half-rotted bags of avocados that didn't ripen and gotten all my money back.

We have one about 1/2 and hour away here in Australia but Ive never been. We have friends who have a big family (11 of them) and they use it all the time.

Maybe I should have a look
