Top 9 Costco Items We Buy for Our Family and Costco Mom HourRGV Moms Blog Top 9 Costco Items:

  1. Baby Products • Diapers, wipes, and formula are some hot items that you can’t beat if you are a mom of infants and toddlers.
  2. Lunchbox Snacks • Squeeze pouches, dried fruit, fruit snacks, … they are all delicious and affordable. Plus, the kids love them!
  3. Rotisserie Chicken • Have you seen the size of them chickens? We love this ready-to-eat bird and the fact that they are always fresh.
  4. Organic Beef and Chicken and Fruit and Veggies • These are so affordable and ORGANIC! Costco has organic items all over and they are easy to find and clearly marked, too. The selection is really top notch and our kids are the ones calling out to throw it all in the cart.
  5. Apples • There is something about their apples and the consistency of their flavor and quality. We love the huge bag, keep them in the fridge, eat them up, slice them up for the boys for snack time. To quote the kids, “More apple snacks, please!”
  6. Gas • Moms have been known to plan their day around gassing up the car at Costco. Member benefits extend to this precious pump, which literally has the best prices in town.
  7. Wine • The selection of wine is really great and their prices make my heart skip a beat.
  8. Mixed Nuts, Trail Mix & Chocolate Covered Almonds • While these snacks usually get pricey, Costco has great deals and great big tubs of nuts. This is a big win for my household. These are so delicious and usually jump into the cart when I’m not looking.
  9. Kirkland brand anything • Really, Costco’s brand, Kirkland, has infiltrated our houses in all departments. Food, paper products, baby products, spices and seasonings… There is so much available and tremendous value in the member discounts. We love them.
