What are the top 10 foods that are actually cheaper at Costco? Well, before my separation I was always the supermarket shopper (and the cook) for the family. I enjoyed that role because I liked being in control of choosing quality ingredients and making healthy & nutritious meals for the family. My other half at the time didn’t really enjoy cooking (or supermarket shopping).
Since getting separated, it has been even more important to maximize every dollar when doing the food shopping for me and the kids. So, while I haven’t turned into a coupon clipping manic like some housewives on Extreme Couponing, I do admit to liking to save a few dollars, all while using the power of positive thinking.
So, here is my list of the top 10 foods that are actually cheaper at Costco…
1. 1. Strawberries
In general, produce at Costco is all priced extremely well. Sometimes it’s difficult, even for a large family like mine, to eat 5 lbs. of apples or a huge box of clementines. But the one thing it is easy to do is eat the 2 lb. clamshell of strawberries. Not only are they priced better than Shoprite ($2.99/lb) or Target ($2.99/lb.), the fruit is so fresh and juicy; I rarely find a rotten strawberry in the bunch. You can occasionally find them on sale at Walmart or your local supermarket for less, but I like the consistency of the price and quality of the strawberries at Costco ($2.40/lb).
