Costco Haul – July 2018

Costco Haul – July 2018

It’s that time again! My 1x/month big Costco trip happened to coincide with a party we were having for the 4th of July and one of my kids birthdays, so you’ll see some things I don’t normally buy. You can head over to my Instagram to check out my story highlights to see me walk you through my purchases. I’m also going to try to do something different this month and keep a log of ALL that we spent on groceries – keep an eye out for that!

While I LOVE Costco, one of my biggest frustrations is the amount of plastic that is used in the packaging. I don’t love it. However, if you saw how the food was transported to your local smaller grocery store, you’d see it’s often in a ton of packaging that’s removed before it hits the shelves. So, my focus right now is to just make sure that I reuse and recycle what packaging we get at Costco. Hopefully, soon food companies will start to reduce the amount of plastic in ALL food packaging, but we can do our best to recycle it at this point.
