Costco Spending

October 4th, 2012 at 04:25 pm

I made a Costco stop last night. We needed paper goods, meat and bag lunch items. I also needed gas.

The price of gas has shot up here. Many stations have it posted for $4.23/gal and up. I paid $4.07/gal last night at Costco. Last week it was $3.99/gal.

I spent $35 on TPaper and PTowels.

As for meat, I bought 10lbs of baby back ribs, 5lbs of New York steaks, 7lbs of ground beef and two 3lbs roasts. $117. We don't normally buy steaks, but those are for DH's birthday dinner.

For school lunches and snacks I bought 60ct string cheese, 36ct 100% juice boxes and 30ct assorted Sunchips. $28.

Slight spending fail: I bought a package of three KitchenAid non-slip cutting boards. $16. We have needed a new set in the kitchen for a long time. I did not *need* to buy them, but it was a reasonable purchase.

    We have a major 'incident' here at the large XL Meat Plant. They ship 'boxed beef' all over the USA. I don't want to send out incorrect information but we have had 3 incidents of contaminated ground beef sold at Costco outlets. Please check with your Costco outlet to confirm the origin of the ground beef you've just bought. I suggest you cook this particular batch of ground beef carefully, not 'pink' or rare to keep a margin of safety. I buy most of our meat at Costco and appreciate the quality.
