My Go To Costco Shopping List :: 2016 Mom Hour

We are thrilled to partner with Costco for this post. However, we genuinely love what they offer and all opinions are 100% our own!

Costco Favorites

Myth vs. Fact

Before I share my obsession love for all things Costco, I think it is important to dispell the biggest rumor I hear.  

Myth: They only sell in bulk and I don’t live with 10+ people, so I don’t need a Costco membership.

Fact: Costco does sell in bulk and large quantities of many items – but they offer so much more. My little family of 3 takes a trip at least twice a month. That’s right, whether I need a quick grab and go dinner option, last minute birthday present, a household staple or gas for my car, I need Costco in my life and we think you do too! We are excited to share our Top 10 favorite items. And, we invite you to take advantage of an amazing membership deal offered just for you – an Atlanta Area Moms Blog and City Moms Blog reader!

Top 10 Must Have Costco Items

Kirkland Signature is Costco’s brand. They have a variety of products. Here are our favorites. 

  1. Prepared meals :: Soups (our two favorites are the chili and the broccoli cheddar), stuffed peppers, chicken salad, take-and-bake pizzas. These are just a few items that make dinner time a breeze (without the guilt of running through the fast-food drive thru). The chili and stuffed peppers are my go-to when I sign-up to bring a new mom a meal after the hospital!
  2. Snacks for Mom (and dad) :: The Nut Bars with almonds, cashews, walnuts with cocoa drizzle and sea salt all satisfy my sweet tooth any day. They remind me of my favorite KIND bar, but are more budget friendly.
  3. Snacks for the kids :: Organic Animal crackers and apple sauce squeeze pouches. 
  4. Bath Tissue :: You can’t beat the price. Plus, this is just one of the many Kirkland Signature products that is rated higher than most leading brands.
  5. Laundry Detergent :: I have had a hard time finding a detergent that is gentle enough for my son’s skin without paying a ton. The Kirkland Signature Free & Clear has solved my problem. 
  6. Organic PJ’s (for kids) :: Comfy, cute and variety. My toddler loves getting new PJ’s and these are no exception. 
  7. Alcohol :: Whether you are hosting a get-together or just want to make sure you have a bottle of wine on hand, the price point and selection is unbelievable. Costco has a great wine program and relationships with wineries across the world. 
  8. Yogurt :: This has been my go-to snack during this pregnancy. The Greek, fruit on the bottom variety is delicious. 
  9. Eggs :: Kirkland Signature offers organic eggs and is one of the reasons Costco is leading the nation in organic sales. The quantity and price is why they always end up in our cart. 
  10. Wipes :: We would get a membership JUST for the wipes. The Kirkland Signature wipes are super easy to pull out and you don’t get stuck grabbing 10 out when you only need a few. And, they hold up even for the messiest mess. 

We have yet to try a Costco item and not love it – but we also know they have a great return policy and they listen to their customers. If you aren’t satisfied for any reason, they are more than happy to return the item for you. There is no reason not to try something new at Costco!
