Costco Haul #2 (May) – Family MealPrep

So today the kiddos and I ran to Costco to do a quick shooping trip. We were low on some basic every day items and we had to stock up on our favorite Costco fruit as well. While we were there we did find some new goodies to try and we found a couple inexpensive household items as well. You can check out the video on youtube here and you can also check out the list of what exactly we bought down below.

Some of the fods (ok, basically all of them) are for meal prepping and following our meal plan for the next few weeks or so. As you read below I will list how or what we will be using them for in the prep. I will also try to film some additional meal prepping as family meal prepping can be hard to come by on video. However – I do think that meal prepping for an entire family is really important. Actually – I think it is more impotant than just meal prepping individually because if you get off track for a couple meals with an entire family you could basically spend an entire weeks grocery budget in just a couple “accidental” fast food meals.

Costco doesn’t cover all of our grocery or meal prep needs. in fact, I think many things at costco are over priced. There are some things that I like to buy there because they are not readily availble everywhere else. THere are other things that I buy there because they are in bulk and I don’t want to keep running back to the store for them contantly when we run out. There are some things that are great deals. Stick to your budget and stick to what you actually need for your meal plan and household supplies. If you keep those things in mind then Costco can be a good solution, if you do not keep these basic things in mind, you will max out your card in there really quickly!

For today there were some basics needed as well as some random splurges!
