Summary List Placement
I buy plenty of avocados to make guacamole and toast.
Avocados are perfect for making guacamole for the week or smashing onto toast with eggs for breakfast.
I buy this big bag for $4.99, and it can last me a little over a week.
The store sells easy-to-assemble salad kits that make for a quick meal.
The Taylor Farms salad kits have helped my mom and I avoid take-out on many occasions.
They come with everything you’ll need, including dressing, and all you need to do is mix. We usually pair the salad with chicken breast or salmon for a weekday dinner.
The Mediterranean salad kit is my favorite, so I usually grab two bags for the week at $5.99 each.
We go through a lot of organic French green beans.
Green beans are perfect for roasting in the oven, and I usually pair them with seared sweet-and-sour tofu.
The meal is so easy that I can even make it on my busiest day of the week.
Costco sells a bulk pack for $5.49.
Costco sells my go-to rolls for toast and sandwiches.
The artisan rolls at Costco are like 12 little pieces of heaven in a bag.
They’re the best type of bread for my lunches, toast, and weekend brunches at home. Plus, I only have to buy them once a month or so because they freeze so well.
Each pack is $5.99, but sometimes there’s a buy-one-get-one special.
It’s hard to find a better price for salmon.
One of my go-to meals is baked lemon-and-herb salmon with lemon rice.
Whenever I buy salmon at Costco, I usually cut it up into portion-sized pieces and freeze them for the next time I make the recipe.
The fish comes in at $7.99 a pound.
I also stock my freezer with wild Alaskan smoked sockeye salmon.
In addition to baked salmon for dinners, I love a lox bagel with cucumbers, cream cheese, red onions, and capers.
Costco’s double packet of salmon is great to keep in my freezer along with bagels for those at-home brunches.
You get two 8-ounce packs for $16.99.
Huge bags of Hippeas are a great replacement for regular potato chips.
Hippeas are crunchy chickpea puffs, and they’ve replaced my need for Lay’s potato chips.
I always get two bags of these because I go through them so quickly.
Each bulk-sized bag is $6.99.
I always make sure to stock up on some paper towels when we’re running low.
I love this giant package of Bounty paper towels because it means I don’t have to go out and buy more for almost two months.
The 12-roll packs cost $21.79.
Costco sells a frozen smoothie mix that has everything you need for a morning boost.
Making smoothies with it in the morning makes me feel like I have my life together, so I buy the Clovis Farms frozen fruit-and-veggie mix every Costco run.
I also like to add protein powder or collagen for an extra boost.
Each pack has strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, kale, spinach, and bananas for $9.49.
We go through a lot of coffee, but I don’t have to stock up as much with a bulk tub.
I grew up with regular drip coffee, and that’s still a go-to in my house.
A 51-ounce tub of Folgers lasts a long time, which is great because no one wants to wake up to the nightmare of an empty container of coffee.
Each tub costs $9.99.
