I’m trying something a little new this year and experimenting with how well I can do with groceries by shopping at Costco. I’m not doing as much grocery store couponing anymore, because I just ended up bringing home a lot of junk. To eat healthier I’ve been trying out different options, one of which is shopping at Costco Wholesale Club. This month’s bulk shopping trip consisted of the following:
Last month’s bulk shopping at Costco lasted me well into February. In fact, I actually hit Costco before I needed to because I’m heading on a road trip next week (hence all the drinks and snacks). Total spent: $142.61. Check out the Costco Organic Price List for the deals (I’ll be adding more to the list this week).
After adding in the milk we bought from a local farmer this past week (five gallons), total spent so far for March is: $172.61 or roughly $43 per week if this only lasts us four weeks. We shouldn’t need to make any other purchases this month unless we run out of milk. I still have plenty of meat, bread and veggies in my freezer along with wheat, pasta and quinoa still stockpiled.
Oh and I also got my free bag of organic, fair-trade coffee this week from Liga Masiva and must admit that it is wonderful coffee!
