Costco Visit

March 6th, 2014 at 08:20 pm

I suppose we are "luckier" than most - a Costco trip is hassle free for us (if easy shopping is "lucky" Wink).
I might have mentioned the store closest to home is right off the highway between the city I work in and the city I live in.
The store is always super clean and has a large parking lot and is rarely crowded during the week.

This afternoon I stopped in for gas and some *stuff*..

Gas was $3.53/gal.

Here are some of the highlights...

$ 9.59 - 3lb bag Frozen Organic Blueberries
$ 8.99 - 6lb bag Frozen California Strawberries
$16.79 - 2.5lb Fancy Unsalted Whole Nuts (I love these! Almonds. Cashews. Pecans. Pistachios. NO cheap-ie peanuts!)
$ 9.99 - 12ct Happy Squeeze Pouches (Tasty fruit & veggie puree - excellent snack for DS.)
$11.99 - 80ct Cascade Dishwasher packs
$19.69 - Jumbo rolls of TP

I also bought rawhide chews for our dog. Canned tuna. Two cases of Izzy juice/sparkling water (special lunch treats for DD). Good clumping cat litter - 35lbs for $8.59. Ice cream sandwiches. Frozen burritos. Crackers.

As you can see I picked up some staples and some favorite treats.
What's your favorite item at Costco?

    what type of cat litter do you get? I have a cat with kidney issues and the stuff I was using doesn't seem to cut it anymore.

    We always buy Kirkland coffee beans to grind fresh. Someone told me their coffee is similar to Starbucks and it's certainly delicious for it's cost compared to Keurig cups or product at specialty stores. I prefer buying meat at Costco if I can't get to the old fashioned small town meat market

    Joanie - It is Litter Purrfect (large green jug w/a blue lid). I've only ever bought it at Costco. Not perfumed. Smile It is very light/fresh smelling which I like a lot. (Used to say Lemongrass scented, but I'm not sure if the label says that anymore.) It makes good, easy to scoop clumps.

    The other thing I would suggest is getting your kitty a larger box. I am always suggesting owners get plastic storage containers. The one that is like a jumbo litter box. Approx 25qt. 16" X 24". They are usually nicer and cheaper than an actual "cat box".

    Snafu - I think the Kirkland coffee says brewed by Starbucks.. or at least it used to a few years ago.
    We buy most of our meat there too. Never been the least bit disappointed.

    Costco is in another town for us probably only twenty five minutes away, but we don't go that way too often. So we don't shop there. We had a Sam's Club membership when the girls were little. At some point we figured that way we were buying didn't really save us any money after the membership fee.
