What to Buy At Costco

What to Buy from Costco

It’s not breaking news to say Costco can be a life-saver. I mean, where else can you buy car tires, a new TV, and a 50-pound bag of sugar? What a great time to be alive!!

That said, Costco can be horribly overwhelming if you go in without a plan. Also, you might leave wondering, “Was that really a deal?” Here is a list of things I think are definitely worth the price of admission. I would love to hear if you agree!


  • Bag of peppers (Watch freshness!)
  • Fresh fruit (except bananas)




  • Applewood smoked bacon (Kirkland or Usingers)
