Costco is one of the best places to buy quality ingredients in bulk and save money on food. With just one trip and $150, you can pick up enough to make nearly three weeks’ worth of dinners (4 servings each)—and have lots of leftovers.
$5 Dinners offers not just one but two Costco meal plans, complete with shopping lists and recipes. (You can buy a packet of printable shopping lists and recipes on the site for $1.49.) Several of the meals are freezer friendly, which we’ve seen before can be a great time-saver.
While prices in your area might vary, the two meal plans at least offer insights into how to stretch your bulk buys into a wide variety of meals. My favorite part of it, though, is it cuts down on the number of grocery shopping trips you have to make each month: With one trip, you can pick up just about all you need for the majority of the month.
