My Costco Grocery Haul for February

Ahhh, the first of the month and off to Costco we go. I went with our youngest child on Saturday after the monthly Home Depot Kids Workshop. I spent $64.32 so far this month.  Below is my shopping list for this trip. Good news, the store had all the items I wanted! Although my son raved about the Brazi Bites that the store was demoing,  I did not add any unexpected items to the list. One thing I question as I shop the store is if the price of the membership is worth it.  Check out the overall savings below.  Does it justify spending the $60.00 membership fee each year? YES!


How I Use What I Buy...
  • Blueberries: Used in oatmeal, pancake topping, and muffins (Breakfast & Snacks)
  • Bread: Sandwiches, toast, and bread crumbs (Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)
  • Mushrooms: As an ingredient in Veggie Burgers, and a simple pasta sauce
  • Peanut Butter: Energy bites, breakfast toast, and sandwiches (Breakfast, Lunch, & Baking)
  • Spinach: Ingredient in Veggie Burgers, salads, sandwiches, and sauteed (Lunch & Dinner)
  • Organic Almonds: Salads and Snack
  • Organic Tortilla Chips: A side for school and home lunches.(Lunch, Dinner & Snack)
  • Animal Crackers: Afterschool Snack
In February 2019, I switched to a vegetarian diet and my husband eats meat on occasion. 2 out of our 3 children who still live at home eat chicken. 1 out of those 2 eat beef. So my meal planning is always fun!!!!
