Costco Shopping and Prices 27/01/14

Back to Costco today. It was really busy, almost as busy as it was just before Christmas, but it took about 10 min to get a car park and we were then in and out fairly quickly. This time I got lots of things from the specials, you can view them on the Costco website here .
Just a small bunch of things this time, although the cost still gets high easily with these things!
Overall I'm pleased with my items. The toothpaste and brushes were the let down for me, but that's what I get for not checking. I have been happy with the Aldi toothpaste, however I didn't love the toothbrushes, so that is a good saving. I will see if I notice any difference with the Colgate toothpaste. If you are loyal to your brand for toothpaste the saving is very good.

The facial wipes are significantly more expensive than the Aldi brand ones, but much cheaper than brand name ones from Woolies, so I will have to use them and see how good they are. That said, it comes in a convenient package and has some smaller travel packs in it which will be handy.

Everything else was very good value and I'm pleased with my purchases. The cake mix will be so handy, being in the tub makes it easy to use and make whatever quantity I like. I will be making some Banana/Blueberry+Oat+Chia breakfast muffins later today hopefully, so we will see how they turn out.


  1. I like to see these costco reviews. I've been tossing up whether to get a membership.

    1. If you have one not to far from you I recommend to just go for it. You can get a refund of your membership at any time, and you can get refunds for any products you aren't happy with or don't like. So there really isn't any risk to it.

  2. I love how you break down the cost for us. I'll just have to make do with Aldi and Woolies, no Costco close by me, unfortunately

  3. Wow this is a great post. Good to know Aldi is still cheaper than Costco for certain products, plus you don't have to buy in bulk.
