20 Meals at Costco for $150 – Meal Plan #2 with Printables

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 13, 2014

Costco Meal Plan

Are you ready?  We’ve got another awesome meal plan for 20 Meals at Costco for $150!  A couple of things first…

Disclaimers

See all of the Costco Meal Plan FAQs here!

Without further ado…

Recipe List

A note about Tuna ~ If you prefer not to use tuna, then you can purchase a 6 pk of 12.5 oz canned chicken for only $11.49 at Costco that you can substitute instead.  All tuna recipes can use canned chicken or purchase additional chicken breasts, cook them in the slow cooker so they are soft and easily shredded and use as a tuna substitute.

We did a live chat, walking through the plan, the recipes and the ingredients. I share tips and tricks for each recipe! I hope the video is helpful to you in understanding how this all works!

Leftovers – you will have lots leftover including:

  • as well as smaller quantities of other ingredients

I did not reflect these “leftovers” in the total cost, so it would really be about $20 less than the total price!!!

Wine Pairings

My good friend, Amy from VineSleuth.com/Uncorked, has taken the time to pair all of our 20 Meals from Costco Meal Plan #2 recipes with fantastic wine options!  Most of these wines should be available in your Costco store as well as other stores in your local area.  Plus, they are almost all between the $8-$15 range!  So, if you like wine or just want to learn more about it, then be sure to check out her blog.

I’m doing the same thing. I have a ton left in my freezer and a lot of pantry staples left. I can already cross some things off the list that I have left over from last meal plan!

I wish there was a vegetarian version for Costco!

Fernanda Hobs January 28, 2014 at 12:24 pm

Yes! more meat-free options would be great!

So hoping this one comes in a Sam’s edition too!! We just switched from Costco to Sam’s because we got a deal on membership. Would be bummed to lose these great recipe plans!

Thank you so much for your Costco meal plans! We have slimmed our grocery budget for 2 adults and 2 hungry boys to $400 per month and these meal plans have really helped us. I already did meal plan #1 last month and am preparing my list for a Costco trip next week for meal plan #2. I still have a ton of spaghetti and corn left from last month, so I’m already saving money before I even enter the store. I’m going to substitute shredded chicken breast for the tuna. Let you know how it turns out!

Thanks for these great meals! This Sunday will be my daughter’s birthday and surely I will try these meals!

For those wanting vegetarian, most of the meat options could be substitute beans, or what ever you normally use in place of protein. Since I have both a Sam’s membership and a Costco membership I can tell you, most of the time Sam’s as the same stuff only cheaper. Costco has more organic, Sam’s has the same in non organic(they do have some organic at some locations) This meal plan would work for any big box with similar prices, just cross off Costco on the printable and insert or store (Sam’s, BJ’s, or whatever).

I just noticed Erin has a Sam’s list too, it just seems like the list would be pretty interchangeable.

I am curious and will check next time I go to Costco if non organic noodles, corn, green beans are an option and cheaper? Just thinking of easy ways to keep it simple on stop, one list but still lower price, if I take your advice on buying the canned chicken for $11.xx instead of tuna, I can use the difference to buy the big container of taco seasoning.

Thank you for these lists! I learn something new everytime you posts one:D

I am attempting this meal plan for the first time but help. Can I freeze the rolls I bought? Can I freeze the chicken how about the sausage?? Thanks

Jessica May 22, 2014 at 5:19 pm

Yes, I froze all of those items. I divided the rolls into large zip-top bags, with 8 rolls per bag, and froze them that way- I think one bag had 6. I put the sausage and chicken in the freezer as soon as I got home and just thawed them out as needed.
