Costco and Healthy Foods
When it comes to shopping for healthy and organic foods, I’ve heard many people complain about the price, stating that it is much more expensive than unhealthy foods. Sure, Whole Foods may not be cheap, but there are many other stores that provide you with healthy options that won’t break the bank. One in particular with which I’ve fallen in love is Costco.
A lot of people argue that being a member isn’t worth it because they could never go through the amount of food you have to buy, but Costco’s offerings are making it more and more worth the price of admission every week. I’ve been a member of Costco for the last few years and I constantly stumble upon healthy items that make me more and more appreciative of the $50 fee.
When you buy these products at Costco, organic and healthy foods become 30 – 50% cheaper than in regular supermarkets…making them competitive to non-organic and unhealthier foods. And for those of you who are afraid of not going through what you buy, I find that in my household of only two people, we EASILY go through the foods that are perishable within two-to-three weeks, while those that aren’t perishable, or have long shelf lives are consumed within a reasonable amount of time. Since each region’s local supermarkets’ prices vary, I’ve listed our own personal savings within the Boston region.
