Costco Time!

It's been a little while since I've done a 'real' Costco shop ... the last one didn't really count as I was in and out in less than 15 minutes. If only all my Costco stops could be that way ;-)

So I had a list, the Boy added a few things on at the last minute ... he was going to go with me then backed out at the last minute which is probably just as well. I find when someone else goes with me I spend way more than I had planned.

So, here's what I got ... a few things were NOT picked up as the pricing was off, so I thought.

Presliced, organic apples $9.99 (price is up)
5 lbs of tomatoes $6.49

Have you been to Costco lately?


  1. Hi, I have cut way back on Costco these days. There's just the two of us living here now and some of the items are just too much for us. I also have noticed that the prices have gone up here (NJ). Don't know if that's true in other parts of the country. Just curious - why do you buy presliced apples? Do you have a specific recipe in mind for them? Do they stay fresh?
