Yesterday, Jeremy and I made a trip to Costco. We usually grab the usual. I always skip the produce section. I’ve always been faithful to the grocery store, but yesterday I decided to check it out. I was shocked how much money I saved by buying their bulk options.
If you have the opportunity to buy in bulk, I’d highly recommend it.
I eat blueberries almost everyday. I add them to my: salads, smoothies, yogurt or cereal. My local grocery store sells 6 oz of blueberries for $4.99. I found a 24 oz case of blueberries for $5.99 at Costco.
The local grocery store sells Gala Apples $2.49 per lb. I found a case of 12 gala apples for $7.29. The entire case was around 4 lbs, so I saved $2.67.
I found a 18 oz package of blackberries for $3.99. My mouth dropped when I saw this. My local grocery store sells 6 oz package of blackberries for $5.00. I usually never buy them because of the price.
Jeremy pointed this one out to me. We eat a lot of stir-fry. After buying tons of vegetables and cutting them up, we spend over $20 on those grocery trips. This entire stir-fry bag came o $7.49. This will most likely last us all week. I am also excited about the time I will save on cutting up vegetables.
It’s so hard to find watermelon this time of year, but apparently not at Costco. My local grocery store only sells sliced watermelon for around $4.00 for 1/4 of a melon. This melon only came to $6.00.
Strawberries, another wallet breaker. I eat strawberries everyday too. This was a 32 oz container for only $3.00…really! Only $3.00. None of the strawberries were rotten, old or bad! They were huge and taste delicious. I usually spend $4.99 for a 10 oz package at my local grocery store.
I also eat a lot of cantaloupe. My local grocery store sells them $2.99 per melon. Costo sold 3 melons for $6.00. Another huge saving.
I like to make fruit and protein smoothies. I usually buy bags of frozen fruit at the store. Those bags are pricey and hardly contain any fruit, just full of air. This bag was super heavy and loaded in all kinds of fruits that I use for smoothies. If I were to buy and cut up all those fruits, I’d spend over $20.00 for sure. This bag was only $10.00.
