    Default Costco- omg!

    Can't remember some of the prices but I did a big shop there last week and some of the stuff I bought:

    Baby bell cheese (1/2 price)
    King island Camembert
    Helgas bread (2 for 1)
    Goats cheese
    Feta cheese
    Toilet paper
    Paper towels
    Dog food - grain free organic salmon 20kg $49
    Santa Vittoria mineral water (99cents a bottle compared to $1.59 at coles)
    Chia seeds
    30m roll xmas wrapping paper $12
    Transformers toy $39 ($69 at kmart)
    Cabbage patch doll $29 ($49 at target)
    Spiderman beach Towell $19
    Batman rash shirt and board shorts $18
    Dr Suess hardcover books -4 - $19
    Moet champagne $44



    Plus over the last year I bought a kitchen aid food processor for $299 ($499 at Myer)
    Kate spade wallet $199 ($399 David Jones)
    Plus they have heaps of toys that are always cheaper - and for parties they sell bulk lollies and chips which are a lot cheaper - you just don't know what you will find until you get there!

    Kids books. They have book sets that are significantly cheaper than you'd find in regular stores. Licensed stuff like Peppa Pig, Hairy Maclary, Spot, Thomas, Disney sets, all for great prices. I like to stock up when I can

    we were down at north lakes on the weekend and bought toffee popcorn, beef jerky, chocolate chip cookie chips and brownie chips.

    I mean they are chips that taste like chocolate chip cookies....they eat like a chip...

    I also purchased some cheap toys/clothes

    I know right! I read they were scoping for sites for a costco in Newcastle a while ago but i doubt there was much truth in such claims.

    Do you costco regulars think a membership would be worth it if you only used it a handful of times per year?

    There was a previous thread where one very organised member had a spreadsheet comparing prices. It was brilliant!

    I buy giant Teddy's for friends kids. Those friends now hate me

    Im on the central coast so i go down on the school hols so 4 x a year. It depends how much you would buy in those visits. Some things i still have plenty of after 10 weeks so dont need to re buy. It sucks not really being able to get the frozen cold stuff. I suppose i could get an esky to take down... But it prolly wouldnt all fit in my freezer

    I typically pick up huggies nappies, wipes, passata, cleaning products, tissues, toilet paper, frozen chips, and some meat depending what's on special. I did some Christmas shopping for my nieces and nephews there too I think I'm becoming a Costco addict...
