Costco Run

We made a trip to Costco yesterday. Our pantry was getting pretty low.

I told the children that we were going to try our best not to buy so much processed food like fish crackers, Ritz and such. We would make some muffins for snacks and finish of the fruit from the co-op. We did okay.

What I like about Costco is they have lots of Organic products now. We were able to get organic applesauce, peanut butter, tomato sauce, oatmeal packets, Rice milk,  Free Ranged Chicken stock, Maple Syrup, Sliced Cheese,  Butter and Spaghetti noodles.

We also stocked up on Balsamic Vinegar, white vinegar, whole coffee beans, shredded Mozzarella & Cheddar cheese, canned, olives, mushrooms, Ranch Style Beans, Baked Beans, Rotel Tomatoes, Oatmeal, Vanilla, Mayonnaise, fruit spread, strawberry jam, Pecans (Ethan's favorite) Sliced Almonds (for our cookies), Ground Beef, McCormick Chicken & Beef Base with no MSG.

And I did get some Saltine Crackers, Peanut Butter Pretzels, Graham Crackers & Organic Animal Crackers. Normally we would have gotten the Ritz, Fish crackers, Pop Tarts, Granola Bars, Bisquick, Nutri Grain Bars, and some others that I can't recall.

Some extras that I got; Starbucks Cocoa and Agave Nectar .


We also got AA, D & C batteries, slippers and Popcorn.

It all came out to a whopping 497.00. I tried to get enough to last us a few months with a few trips to the grocery store & Braum's. We buy our milk, eggs and butter at Braums once we finish with what we got at Costco. Hopefully, I won't write about another Costco run for a another couple of months.

I know I could have done better by making a few of the items like mayo, salsa and not getting things like animal crackers or Starbucks Cocoa (to make your own click here) but we did do a lot better. I did double up or triple up on things like apple sauce and normally we would have spent this much on a lot of snack foods.

All the canned beans and Rotel are for our Taco Soup. Yummy! It's regular thing around here now.

Joshua, loves to have his Grahm Crackers with milk for a snack in between school subjects.

Annette, loves Pop Tarts but she was so good and didn't ask for them.
