What are your favorite Costco items/deals?

What are your regulars?

I love the Bel Giossa Parmesan at 4.59 a lb

I think their multi-grain bread is the best around and they have a twin bag of sourdough (Namebrand) for the price of one that is really good.

Big bag of organic quinoa for 10 bucks can't be beat.

Butter and cheese beats the supermarket for price. I have tried a bunch of their premium cheeses and have never been disappointed either.I bought some Point Reyes Blue today and my 3 year loved it.Love that kid!

Tried the sausage and meat lasagne tonight and was pleasantly surprised for a pre-made product.The ravioli they carry in the black bag is good too.

When they have fresh Halibut it is great but last time they wanted you to buy the whole fish and it was more than I wanted to spend.

The big box of Ghiradelli brownies mix is the best mix I have had. They aslo have a bag of cashew clusters with pumpkin seeds and some other stuff that is pretty good.

I don't shop much meat or produce there.

What do you like?

I really need to check out Costco some day. Trouble is Costco is a good 15 minute drive and I can be at BJ's in 5 minutes flat (it's in my neighborhood). I just have no other reason to go to the section of town where Costco is.

as far as food goes, the goat cheese logs are a great deal. also, the locatelli cheese is a good price for a wedge.

i often buy the packages of 4 pork tenderloins, premio sausage, and 2 packs of roasting chickens.

Definatly the Roasted chicken!

Also bought the 50 lb bag of jasmine rice for literally the price of 2 lbs in my old NY supermarket

The boneless skinless chicken thighs come in like a pack of 6 and one package is perfect for us per meal

I also must have saved several hundred dollars in diapers and wipes by now by buying a case.

We buy many non-food items as well. Lots of paper products, especially bathroom tissue both for home and business, and lots of paper plates.

I usually wait at least til September to purchase my Turbo Tax and get them from Amazon as they become hugely discounted near the end of year's tax filing season. This is, of course, only advantages to those who file extensions past the April 15 deadline. I use their Home & Business software and have always gotten them for under $20 through Amazon.
