6. Salmon

While Ralphs sells farm-raised fresh Atlantic salmon fillets for $9.99 per pound, Kirkland Signature fresh farm-raised Atlantic salmon fillets cost roughly $16.16 per pound at Costco. However, despite the fact that this type of salmon is expensive, a lot of shoppers say that it’s high-quality meat compared to the meat that’s sold in other stores.

In the end, I suppose it’s up to you to decide which is more important: quality or quantity, or both.

7. Spices in bulk

Unless you’re planning on cooking for your entire family, buying spices in bulk may not be the best idea because you won’t use them until they start losing flavor. In fact, it’s recommended to replace your spices twice a year, so the chances you’re actually going to use all the spices you bought from Costco are pretty low.

Instead, you can go for small bags or shakers that you can find at your local grocery store for even better prices!

    I’m a Costco member for the last 35 years and your information about prices are totally wrong for example toothpaste that you mention sensodine cost $24 dollars a pack of 4…..the milk it’s about 6 dollars and chicken breast it $24 dollars per 10 lbs so it’s $2.40 per pound….. You need to talked to whomevergive you the wrong prices…..

  2. It was nice to know this info. My Granddaughter shops for the both of us. We divide certain foods in half. I live alone so I don’t need much. What she divides for me lasted more than a month!! I like shopping in the home goods area, it has items that you won’t find in other stores.

  3. With regard to you stated milk prices at Costco, I check prices sometimes and find that milk is almost always cheaper at Costco than Publix and Walmart in southern Florida. Also, I have always been able to purchase single gallons for years.
