11 Must-Buys at Costco in 2021!

11 Must-Buys at Costco in 2021!

TJ

UPDATE: Check your local store for the rolled oats, our local Costco is not carrying them until July.

Save over $50.00 with these 11 must-buys at Costco this year.  As I bonus, they are all organic. The sliced turkey breast is a new item I've added to my Costco shopping list recently. My meat eating son asked/demanded/requested more protein. I guess he was getting tired of grilled cheese sandwiches! So buying it from Costco saves me a trip to Whole Foods Market for lunch meat.

How I calculated the savings: I find the unit price of the item from the other store by dividing the price by its size. Then I mulitiply the number by the size sold at Costco. The price at Costco is then subtracted from that number to determine the overall savings.
