Top 10 CostCo Steals

If you do not have CostCo, insert Sam's Club above.

1) 42" Vizio Plazma HDTV- Talk about getting our $50/year membership worth on this one. Yee haw.

2) Carter's PJ's- Best Pj's in town at bottom pricing. Love me some footies.

3) Entertainment Center- Classic and modern wood furniture for PENNIES. Also, ASSEMBLED. Major bonus.

4) Kitchen Trash Bags- Now I have purchased two boxes of trash bags in 3 years and still have half a roll left. Not the sturdiest of bags, but they get the job done.

5) Foster Farm's Mega Pack of Chicken Breasts- All the chicken you'll ever need at a fraction of the cost. Chicken is expensive people! I also am going to buy their frozen chicken nuggets for Rt. Heard good things about those.

6) Ziploc Bags- I actually wanted to get the freezer bags, but they didn't have any at the time, so I ended up with the sandwich bags. Dude, I have found so many ways to use these things and I haven't even gotten through the first box out of 4. Nice.

7) 10.2" Widescreen MINTEK Portable DVD Player- Can we say we are SO ready when the need arises for long plane rides and even longer ass car trips?

8) Sonicare Electric Toothbrushes- These things aren't cheap to begin with. You can also buy the replacement packs too. Now, if I can just remember to brush my teeth, let alone use the electric one, I'll be set. (I'm a mom, I forget, ok?)

9) Fillets- All you need is some freezer bags and you are set to eat steak all month long. Great price and good taste. Gotta have me some meat.

10) Bottled Water- We used to buy the gallons of water when we lived in LA and all we had was our puny filtered water pitcher inside the fridge. Now that we have filtered water from the fridge itself, the bottles are nice to have on the go.

Now, I know you can add to this list. Bring it.

I haven't been in a couple of weeks but the steals for me start with the dog food, books, and snack type treats. We did buy a tv there last year and possibly another one soon (tvs apparently don't last forever).

Okay I am screwed again! What is WRONG with NYS?? We have nothing!

LVGurl said...

We've had a membership for years, Costco is right around the corner, but we rarely go...

Lo- Um, I think you win out on many a thing in NY. IT's NY! I wouldn't be too bummed.

LvGurl- HELLO! Get your ass to CostCo, ALONE. You'll find something to get your membership's worth.

We buy most of the above. And Becel. And cereal. And SO MUCH MORE! Thanks for stopping by the other day :)

I need to remember the good deal on Mach 3s for Drew. And the Sonicare replacement heads are a bonus too.

Otherwise, we get overwhelmed by the 500 gallon Heinz ketchup bottles and king-size pillowcases full of pretzels. We end up leaving with the double bags of beef jerky.

and the case of water that lasts for three months.

OK, so did you guys just get some recent upsurge of cash or something? It helps to not have to pay two freakin mortgages, I get that, but sheet, 42" flat screen, 10.5" travel DVD. Wait, do you guys watch alot of TV?

little miss mel said...

LisaMac- Got the tv last summer with hubs bonus. Travel dvd I bought for my bday. Yes, no two mortgages here, but these were special occasion items. I did, however, go to CCo today and found Annie's Organic Mac 'n Cheese (Cheddar). 15 pack for $12. Now that IS a steal.b

Oh, we ADORE Costco; we also buy assloads of bottled water and ziploc bags, but my absolute fave there is the baked goods. They smell heavenly, and taste even better. I ask you, who DOESN'T need 2 massive trays of croissants? Complete necessity.

Miss - if only it were that simple, I am several hours north of NYC, not much up in these here parts 'sides Walmart and lots o' cows....
