Other things we bought from Costco at a great price included: parmesan cheese, organic peanut butter, organic brown rice, organic quinoa, organic salsa, organic chicken stock, organic granola cereal, frozen organic corn, broccoli, and green beans, organic free range eggs, cheddar cheese, organic rice dream, fresh organic spinach, organic whole wheat bread, also eco friendly dish liquid and eco friendly dishwasher liquid.
Not everything in Costco was organic, but we found a good selection and what they did have was at a great price. My mother in law thought I was crazy because I kept going on and on about how great the prices were! I've been pinching pennies and watching my grocery budget closely, so to be able to purchase organic food at almost half price was amazing! (I do not but 100% organic, but try to as often as possible.)
Some of the organic food is their own Kirkland Signature brand. I was curious as to what the quality would be like, but everything we have tried so far has been great. There are still a few things I will get from Meijer that Costco did not have (organic ketchup, organic spaghetti sauce, etc). Costco also did not offer much organic produce, so I'll still be buying that from the farmer's market or Meijer. It looks like a trip to Costco once a month from now on will be well worth it!
Another big plus is that stocking up on staples like brown rice and oats makes my weekly shopping at Meijer much easier because I have less to shop for. Do you shop at Costco? I recommend checking it out, the giant bottle of Nutella alone is well worth it. ;)
