Costco Shopping List

After years of trying to create weekly menus and maintain an organized shopping list, I have come to the conclusion that it's not necessary.  I only make lists when I am making something new and really never go to the grocery store.  I do most of my shopping at Costco.  In the next couple of weeks I will try to do a cost comparison with Costco and other local grocery stores, but for now I have posted my Costco shopping list.  I love that I can buy things in bulk so that my freezer is always stocked with meat and vegetables and my pantry with other essentials.  I also appreciate their organic selections, consistently good produce, and very large boxes of diapers!  I tried to organize the list in order of where the items are located in the Willow Road store.  I think you will see that my list is not very long, but is well rounded.  I can prepare a week's worth of dinners using only items purchased from Costco.

Please share your favorite Costco finds and tricks for storing all of that stuff!  Cost comparisons and more details about the items will be posted soon!
