I got a really great assortment of stuff this time which is nice as sometimes with the deals you walk away with a bunch of Kraft items or cookies or so who knows what. This time it was a little of everything. Even tilapia, which we ate tonight, yum!
All this was only $29.25 for $87.27 worth of groceries.
Some people have asked me if I think you can get good prices at Costco. My answer is yes and no. It’s really a personal decision. For me, it is very close to my house. I pick up the same items all the time. Milk, romaine lettuce, turkey, bananas and a few things here and there that my family likes that I have trouble getting good coupons on or that they just don’t carry at the regular stores. The fifty some odd dollars it costs to join have to be taken into consideration as well when determining the costs and savings.
You have to be careful when you shop there. A lot of people think that just because you buy in bulk means you are getting a great price. Not so. There are many, many items that are priced much higher then using coupons and matching them up with sales at your regular stores.
Bananas, milk, romaine lettuce, yeast, block cheese, eggs
So, everything you see in the bottom picture is from Costco & Pathmark. Picked up that $1.77/lb ground turkey (great price) on sale at Pathmark. Will be making our special turkey dish tomorrow and I will share the recipe. Easy, cheap and delicious…just the way I like it. The Tosititos and salsa…well, we have a World Series going on people…what do you think we eat?!?!
Paid $27.18 at Costco & $12.61 at Pathmark.
Total for the week: $69.04 which is yet again under my $75 budget. Yay!!
