Disclosure:: Seacoast Moms Blog is thrilled to announce our Costco Mom Hour event. Costco is sponsoring this event and we are so happy to partner with them!
As busy moms, we so value our “free time” (what’s that?!) and would rather spend it doing almost anything other than running errands. Our to-do lists are long. They include diaper changes, constant feedings, packing lunches, getting to the bus stop on time, schlepping kids from one activity to the next, and the homework/bath/bed routine. And just as quickly as one day ends, another begins, and we gear up to do it all over again.
Why Costco is a Mom’s Best Friend
So what’s the best remedy to the hustle and bustle of motherhood? Simple–buying in bulk at Costco and embracing the endless benefits of a one-stop-shop. Not only will this cut down on your to-do list, it will reduce your budget. Serving the Seacoast, Southern New Hampshire, and the Greater Boston area, our Costco is conveniently located in Nashua, NH. There are SO many offerings at Costco that you may not even know about, so we are here to help.
10 Products We Always Buy at Costco
1. Diapers and Wipes :: There is no denying the amount of money you save when you buy these disposable necessities in bulk! The Kirkland brand diapers are so soft and durable, and the wipes stay fresh longer than lots of other packaged brands out there. Trust us on this–your baby’s bum (and your wallet) will thank you.
2. Organic Produce :: Obviously, every mom wants to feed her kids the most healthy and nutritious food possible, but the reality is that not every family can afford to buy fresh and organic all the time. Costco offers a wide variety of organic fruits and vegetables in portion sizes that feed your entire family at an affordable price. So when your kid polishes off an entire carton of raspberries the moment you turn your back…no problem, there’s another one ready and waiting in the fridge!
3. Organic Meat and Seafood :: Imagine being able to buy organic, high-quality meats and seafood (fresh or frozen) at the same, if not lower, cost than what you’d find at grocery stores. At Costco, it can happen. Save some freezer space before you shop this category in bulk, but it’s so worth having a healthy and quick go-to dinner option in a pinch.
4. Snack Food :: Kirkland Signature Brand offers so many snack options, you will be packing lunches and doling out play date munchies for weeks! Think protein-packed nuts, pouches, crackers, pretzels…the list goes on. And on.
5. Paper Products and Cleaning Supplies :: Toilet paper, napkins, paper towels, tissues, garbage bags, and the top-rated Kirkland brand laundry detergent, as rated by Consumer Reports, are just the tip of the iceberg at Costco! Shop for these items once a month, save a ton of money, and don’t worry about running out.
6. Vitamins and Medicine :: These items are never cheap, and this time of year in New England, it definitely pays to have a stocked medicine cabinet. Costco’s pharmacy offers Kirkland brand and more to ensure you’re not stuck running out to your local 24-hour pharmacy just to be inconvenienced at a higher price.
7. Prepared Meals :: Having company? Not in the mood to cook? Want to put a delicious and healthy meal on the table that yields leftovers? Say hello to Costco’s freshly prepared meals and soups, appetizers, deli platters, and desserts. From chicken wings for a football party to a lasagna that will feed your family for days, this section will make you drool–and not just because it’s delicious, but because of the time you will save.
8. Wine :: Yes, wine! You can’t beat the prices, and they almost always have whatever you need in stock, including some higher end bottles for gifting or special occasions.
9. Baked Goods :: Speaking of celebrating, have a kid’s birthday coming up? Costco’s custom cake order section will leave your birthday baby smiling and your kitchen clean. Don’t forget to check out the pies, Thanksgiving is just around the corner!
10. Holiday Essentials :: The center of the store is dedicated to an ever-changing stock of seasonal items. And believe it or not, right now at Costco, ’tis the season! From adorable Kirkland gift tags to that giant Frosty your kids will inevitably beg for, it’s all there.
That’s just our short list. You can also pick up clothes, toys, books, TVs, tires, shampoo, pizza, organic milk and eggs…you name it! We love Costco and are proud to have one right here in New Hampshire.
