Since I live more towards the mountains in San Diego, stores are harder to get to for me. My Costco and Target are around 45 minutes away, so I like to get all of my shopping done once a month. I love Costco because I can stock up on literally everything from clothes to food. I call it restocking my life. lol.
This Costco haul list has all of the usual products I buy on a monthly basis including food and beauty. My list is broken down by category, and at the end is where the recipes are. They are all super easy, 20 minute or fewer meals. There is also a condensed Costco shopping list that’s easier to take on the go at the end of my shopping list breakdown! So let’s get down to business
A Complete Costco Haul
My Costco Shopping List:
Before I start, I would just like to state that prices and sizes may vary depending on your area. These are just the prices at my store.
Rotisserie Chicken $4.99 – I use this for everything. Such a good price and I can add it to a pita wrap or eat it plain with veggies. Once I’m done I have sometimes even used the bones to make bone broth. Zero food waste!
Organic Paleo Basil & Cracked Black Pepper Chicken Sausage – 12 Links $13.79 – I freeze these and take them out as needed! It’s a lot of sausage, and it’s great to keep in the freezer for quick meals.
Frozen Chicken Tenderloins 6lbs $17.89 – I love throwing these in the crockpot with some BBQ or Buffalo sauce! Since they’re smaller than a chicken breast, they cook quicker.
RX Protein Bars 16 bars $17.89- I eat these every day as a snack! So good and they are clean which I love. They are pricier but other protein bars have so much junk in them.
Gold Standard Protein Powder 5.64lb $49.99 – Protein powder is so much cheaper in bulk at Costco. I use it in my breakfast smoothie (recipe below) every morning, so if I didn’t buy it in bulk I’d be spending so much money!
Orgain/Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides $39.99/44.99 – Okay so I’ve noticed that some Costcos have one brand, and some have the other. My Costco has the Orgain Collagen brand which is $39.99. I use collagen in my smoothies every day, and it has made such a huge difference in my hair and nails. They grow so fast and my nails are much thicker now too.
Vegetables & Fruit:
Wholly Guacamole Individual Serving Cups $13.89 – These are my Holy Grail. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen me talk about these a bunch. I love them because you can freeze them. I used to throw out Avocados all the time cause they go bad so fast, but now I buy these and I just take a couple out of the freezer at a time. Usually, when I use one, I automatically move another one from my freezer to fridge. The best part is they are made with all clean ingredients!
Spring Mix 16oz $3.99
Bag of Spinach 2.5lbs $3.99 – I go through so much spinach! I use this giant bag up before the end of the month usually.
Broccoli 3lb $3.99
Dave’s Killer Bread 2 Loaves $5.99 – this bread is SO GOOD. It’s probably one of the most flavorful pieces of bread I’ve ever had. At a normal grocery store, it’s 5.99 for one loaf, so this is such a steal!
Kirkland Organic Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk 6 pack $7.49 – I love using almond milk in smoothies, but I hate the extra sugar a lot of them have. They’re also usually really expensive if you use it a lot. These come in packs of 6 and can be stored in the pantry until opened.
Banza Gluten Free Chickpea Rotini Pasta 5 Bags $8.79 – This gluten-free pasta is clean and so good! I usually hate pasta that’s not normal flour, but this is tastes almost exactly the same as normal pasta. And I’m Italian, so that’s saying a lot!
Cage Free Eggs 2 Dozen $8.59 – Right now I’m buying my eggs from a local chicken farmer that’s near my house. I love supporting a small business! But once we move I’ll definitely be getting my eggs from Costco. These are actually more expensive than the regular store bought brand, but they are cage free which is why.
Siete Foods Grain Free Tortilla Chips 12oz $6.79 – These chips are usually so expensive. This is such a steal! I love them with my Wholly Guac Cups! Plus they’re clean and gluten-free.
Seeds, Seasonings, & Sauces:
Nutiva Chia Seeds 32oz $13.99 – I love these in my smoothies for some added fiber, and I used to run out of the small packages from the grocery store so fast! This is a great price, and they’re organic.
Rao’s Marinara Sauce 40oz $7.99 – This stuff is so good! This is the same price as a bottle half the size at a regular grocery store. I usually will use half of the bottle, and then freeze the other half for later use.
Dr. Bronners Peppermint Castille Soap 2 Bottles $12.99 – I love this clean soap! No gross chemicals. It’s usually $12 for one bottle at Target, so I love buying it at Costco.
Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes 180 wipes $12.99 – These makeup wipes are awesome, and I even compared them to the cheapest ones at Target (which is the Elf brand ones) and they’re still cheaper than those! I would compare the quality of these to the Neutrogena Makeup Wipes, but they’re much cheaper.
That’s my entire Costco shopping list! I made a condensed list below if you want to be able to reference it while in the store. If you right click on the photo, it will allow you to save it to your phone or computer.

4 Go-To Costco Meals
Phew! I know this is a long one, but I wanted to get everything in! Here are my weekly go-to Costco meals:
Peanut Butter Chocolate Breakfast Smoothie
Serving Size: 1
1 Cup Almond Milk
2 Handfuls/Cups Spinach
1 Scoop Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
1 Scoop Collagen Powder
2 Tbs Chia Seeds
1 Tbs Peanut Butter
(Optional) Half of a Frozen Banana
Add all ingredients to blender, and blend until smooth. Enjoy! I got the idea for this recipe from this book. She believes every meal should have the “Fab 4” ingredients to keep you full! This smoothie definitely keeps me full all morning. I drink one every day.
Avocado & Egg Toast
Serving Size: 1
1 Wholly Guacamole Cup
1 Slice Dave’s Killer Bread
To Taste, Everything But The Bagel Seasoning – I got mine from Trader Joe’s but they also sell this at Costco!
Toast the bread, and cook the egg as desired (I always go for sunny side up!). Spread guac cup onto the toast and then add Everything But The Bagel Seasoning. Top with egg and enjoy! I eat this for lunch as a quick meal all the time! Super easy.
GF Sausage & Marinara Pasta
Serving Size: 4
4 Basil & Pepper Sausages
1 Bag of Banza GF Pasta
Half A Bottle Of Rao’s Marinara Sauce
Cook Pasta according to package instructions, and set aside. Heat sausages over medium heat until they start to blister (they are fully cooked, so don’t worry about cooking all the way through). Add marinara sauce to the sausages, and bring to simmer. Add sauce and sausages to pasta, and mix. This one tastes even better the next day after the pasta has absorbed the sauce!
Rotisserie Chicken With Broccoli
Serving size: 4
1 Rotisserie Chicken
Half A Bag of Broccoli
1 Tbs Olive Oil
To taste, Garlic Salt & Pepper
This is by far the easiest recipe out of all of these. The rotisserie chicken is already warm and cooked right from the store. I usually just put pieces in the microwave to reheat once it’s been in the fridge. For the broccoli, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place broccoli on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Drizzle olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper on top of the broccoli. Mix together (I usually just use my hands), and place in the oven for 20 minutes or until they start to get crispy. Serve with the rotisserie chicken!
