Every month I head to Costco and share some of the new and exciting finds. Keep in mind that selection and prices may vary by location. A new coupon book was released and the prices are valid through August 27th. Here is a peek at some of the markdowns, new, sale and seasonal items I found at my Covington, WA Costco for August.
Here are couple of Costco tips for you: If an item ends in 7, it is Costco’s version of a clearance item. Also, if you notice an asterisk in the top right hand corner of the sign with the price, that means it is a seasonal item and will not be stocked again (it may come back next year, but it won’t be re-stocked after the current supply is depleted).
I picked up a set of these, my plastic storage containers were in major need of being replaced. Through August 27th, you can save $8 off this set and get it for only $16.99.
Costco has some pretty S’well bottles with a gift box that would be great for gifting. I love the pretty marble ones.
I found these serving sets marked down to $9.97.
This Swirl Centerpiece Vase was also marked down to $9.97.
A ton of the coupon deals this month are on items for back-t0-school snacks. Get this big box of Chewy granola bars for only $5.99. Super deal!
Big box of Cheez-Its are $5.59.
I’m a big fan of these Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Tortilla chips and at $3.99 it’s a steal.
The big box of Welch’s Fruit Snacks are only $7.99, which makes them $.10 each.
You will also find some great deals on supplies for back-to-school. These 25 ct of Sharpie markers are only $10.99.
The best pencils in my book are Ticonderoga and this is a great price for 8 dozen, only $9.49.
I can’t stop at Costco without checking out the books. I rarely buy, because I love using my library, but I do check out the selection for new books to check out from the library and to buy books for gifts. My youngest would love the coding book and his birthday is coming up in September.
They have some fun alternatives to candy to pass out to trick or treaters. Check out these mini puzzles in tin containers. These would also be good to hand out as party favors.
There is also an 80-count pack of Play-Doh for $13.99.
Halloween costumes are now in-stock.
There is new clothing for fall. I spotted these cute tulle skirts for little girls priced at $9.99. Check out several more styles below.
Kids character hoodies for boys and girls are $9.99. The Minnie Mouse is adorable.
There is a great deal on flannel shirts for men, only $9.99.
Get a 9-pack of women’s no show socks for only $7.99.
Men’s Kirkland Athletic Shoes were marked down to only $12.97.
Have you tried these 3 Cheese Mini Ravioli yet? The’ve come a staple at our house. They cook in 3 minutes so they are perfect for a quick easy meal. Just make a salad to go with and you are good to go.
Here is another new food item we love, Popcornopolis Organic Kettle Corn. Yum!
Here is a new food item I’d like to try. Nature’s Path Coconut & Cashew Butter Crunchy Organic Granola. Does anybody else see things they really want to try and promise to try a smaller package from a regular grocery store to make sure you like it first. Only you never actually buy it from the grocery store to try it, or when you do, you find out the small package costs nearly as much as the large Costco one.
Costco now carries Organic Cauliflower Rice for $3.99. We tried making Fried Rice out of Cauliflower Rice once. It’s not the same, but it wasn’t horrible. Anybody a huge fan?
Furniture has once again returned to Costco. I love this huge table and chairs for $899.99. We are kind of on the end of the furniture, so they should be clearing it out soon.
I absolutely love this accent cabinet/armoire for $289.99. If I had some place to put it I would snatch this baby up.
You should be able to find lots of football themed gear for your local team.
This plush blankets are $16.99.
Before you know it we’ll be seeing Christmas stuff at Costco. This year has flown by fast. I’d love to hear what new and exciting things you’ve been buying at Costco.
