 I recently purchased a Costco membership.  I do not really like stores that require you to pay a membership fee to shop at the store but I went ahead and joined since I found a deal where you get $50.00 in Costco coupons with the membership.  Some of the coupons are for FREE products and some are just dollar amounts off.  I will use $40.00 worth of the coupons (the $10 I am not using are for eye exams) so I decided to try a membership for a year. 

I have to say that I am not impressed after my shopping trip today and probably will not continue my membership after a year.  I spent a lot of money even after coupons and most of the items I can find at the grocery store for the same price or less with a sale & coupon.

  • Kirklands Green Beans 12 cans $7.49
  • Contadina Organic Tomato Sauce 12 cans $6.99
  • Kirkland Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil $9.99
  • Kirkland House Blend Coffee 2lb. $12.99 (used FREE coupon)
  • Bananas 3lbs. $1.39
  • Carnation Instant Breakfast 30ct. $9.89
  • Grape Tomatoes 2lbs. $5.99
  • Chicken Tenders 6lbs. $16.55 (used $5 coupon)

Total Out of Pocket = $53.39

  • Genesis Acai Berry Juice $6.97
  • Green Goodness Juice $3.28
Total Out of Pocket = $10.25

Finally, I purchased a package of Yogurt Starter for $4.29 (saved $.10 for bringing my own bag) at Whole Foods Market so I can make yogurt in my new yogurt maker this weekend.

Total Money Spent this Week = $103.50
