COSTCO is a store that you guys are passionate about! I was FLOODED with responses when I asked for your best food to buy at Costco recommendations. You guys had so many good healthy ideas that I had never seen or heard of that I promptly had to hunt these items down in the store.

For those of you who need help with healthy shopping in general, I have created a clean eating (which means NOT processed) free printable grocery shopping list. If you sign up for my email list at the top gray bar or in the sidebar, it will be sent to you automatically!

We got a COSTCO membership about a year ago and have loved it especially for diapers, wipes, gas for our cars, and whenever we host parties in our home. I always love reading posts about the best things to buy at COSTCO and clearly you guys are into it too.

You all may remember a while back that I shared about Shipt and our best tips for saving money on groceries. Well, I’m so excited to tell you that Shipt now services COSTCO! How awesome is that?! There are so many of my friends that don’t go to COSTCO as often as they’d like because it’s just too far out of the way, but this certainly solves that dilemma!

Meat: This tip from Grace was too good not to share: We buy ALL our meat there and separate it out and freeze it. For the ground beef/ ground turkey we cook the whole package and separate it out in 1.5 to 2 cup amounts and freeze it. It is plenty of meat for spaghetti, tacos, add to soups, etc. and it saves a ton of time with meal prep!

    Wow, Heather!! What an awesome list! I’m so interested in trying those Kale & Mozzarella Chicken Burgers. How’s Leyton been with his “picky eating?” His face, when you’re eating the Aussie Bites, is too cute!
