We buy a lot at Costco, so 5 items barely scratches the surface of the great things you can buy there. There are some things I immediately took out of the list, because formula and diapers aren’t something that most people are looking to try from Costco. I haven’t included the black bean burgers we can’t get enough of, the cheap beer, the agave syrup, the maple syrup (we are a syrup loving family), or even the V8 we buy by the case.
This list is 5 great things at Costco that we buy at least monthly that I wanted to share with you. Maybe you buy them too.
Eggo Waffles. We have big breakfasts every day. Often Audrey naps trough lunch and only has two meals. Mornings for her start with fruit, eggs, and a peanut butter waffle. John will eat them with butter and syrup. Elliot likes anything on them. I have been known to use them for the bread in egg in the hole when we are out of bread. Are they great? No. Are they good? Yeah. Do I like not having to buy boxes of waffles at the store every week? Yes.
Half and Half. We have a 2 year old and a 9 month old. We drink a lot of coffee.
Tillamook Cheese. This is our house cheddar. We use it in eggs at breakfast, on sandwiches at lunch, and in casseroles at dinner. We will eat it as a snack too. It’s good cheese. Good enough to buy by the brick.
Berries (you know what they look like): Costco has good berries at a decent price year round. We buy them every trip. I often lie to Audrey and tell her we are out of raspberries because I want to eat them.
Toilet Paper. We buy Kirkland toilet paper. It’s fine. I think it is no better and no worse than average toilet paper. It’s cheap, I’m cheap, it works. I should clarify that the other items on this list we buy at least monthly, but toilet paper is more of a once every six months or a year item.
What do you buy at Costco? Are there any gems that I’m missing?
Every Friday I share 5 things I think you should know about. Are there any 5 on Friday topics you would like to hear about? Comment to share your ideas.

I love how cheap their cheeses are! And the 12-pack of black beans cans. I mean, it IS a magical fruit.
Chickpeas and diced tomatoes by the case are also good. I could do a post on cases of canned items.
We are all about the compari tomatoes, power greens (in lieu of spinach), cheese, and WINE. Wine, wine, wine. Lots of wine. Fresh bread, too. But wine. We like their grinders of salt. And the Kirkland applesauce pouches. And the wine.
Now I want some wine.
