How I Stick To A $100 Costco Budget Per Month!!!
Costco is one of my favorite stores! My mom purchases our yearly membership for us every Christmas (Thanks MOM!). I utilize this store to my full advantage and I don’t get sucked into all the FUN things they have to offer. Oh but yes, I love walking up and down the aisles, but I am there on a mission. A mission to only spend $100, and when you take that mission seriously like I do, you will find that spending only $100 there per month is much easier than you’d think!
2 Most Important Costco Tips:
- Always have a list!!!!!
- Always bring your cash!!!!!
These tips will keep you from overspending! It’s like I have my tunnel vision glasses on when I go into the warehouse. Yes, I do enjoy browsing and enjoying all the fun items, but my focus is on my list and my cash. I don’t want to leave the store upset with myself for over spending when I don’t have to!
Here is a list of items I buy, and when I buy them.
Monthly (every month I buy these items):
Cage-Free Eggs, 2 dozen – $3.29
Kirkland Low Sodium Bacon, 4pk – $10.99-$13.99
Romaine Lettuce, 5ct – $3.99
Rotisserie Chicken – $4.99
RxBars, 12ct – $16.99
Every Other Month As Needed:

If I have leftover money for the month, I will either add it to my weekly grocery budget, or I will use it up and buy extra produce. I really like Costco’s organic sweet potatoes, frozen berries, fresh berries, squash, brussell sprouts, and apples.
