When I was in Atlanta, I had dinner with my good friend and Savvy Blogging co-conspirator, Crystal from The Thrifty Mama. As dinner came to a close, she mentioned how much she wanted to stop by Costco and create a list of the prices on some of their organic products. Well, I had nothing better to do, so I went with her (and her 2 kiddos) and wrote down the prices of all the different organic products in the store.
(Because that’s what two money saving, grocery shopping nerds do on a Wednesday night.)
If you have a Costco near you, you might want to check out the list. You can find the complete list of organic products sold at Costco on Crystal’s site.
And I must say…I was quite impressed with some of the prices on their organic products. Way cheaper than my grocery store, and way cheaper than most Amazon organics offers. Too bad there’s not a Costco closer to me, as I may be able to integrate more organics into our budget.
Now go check out the complete list…and let us know what you think! Are these good prices for organics?! What are some of your prices for organics?!
Those are good prices for organic items. However, one thing to keep in mind is that just because something is organic, doesn’t automatically make it healthy for you. An example is the animal crackers in your picture. Crackers, cookies, chips, and pre-packaged convenience foods are usually not very healthy, regardless if they’re organic or not. Instead, making these from scratch, using organic ingredients (like organic whole wheat flour), will probably end up being better for you-and will may be cheaper too 🙂 Organic boxed mac n cheese still comes with nasty cheese powder. Making mac n cheese with organic whole wheat noodles, real organic butter, and real cheese is going to be your better option 🙂
Thank you for the link to this list!
Our Costco just opened up in the last six months, so we’re still exploring things there.
It would be nice if our particular Costco had organic produce – they just don’t seem to carry any organic produce at all. And in our town, with no SuperWalMart, organic produce is at a premium.
Oh, well…I can keep wishing! Maybe they’ll begin to do more of that some time in the near future.
I heart Costco. I used to go there on a weekly basis when I lived in Alaska. I have kept our membership so that I can go down to Cinci when I miss it. In fact, I’m thinking of making a trip this week . . .
To get quinoa. I bought some at Kroger the other day and was like, WHAT?!
I prefer it to rice in most my dishes. I had run out when you guys came over for dinner for Stack-E-Up-Es, or I’d have fed it to you then.
I’ll probably pick up a few other things while I’m there.
