After my last trip to the local Costco Wholesale Club warehouse, I decided to take pictures of all the products and post their prices on this page. (This purchase was made in mid June of 2008.)

If you're considering becoming a Costco member, find the receipt from your last supermarket purchase and compare those prices to these.

I've done some of my own quick comparisons between our Costco receipts and the receipts from the local Publix Supermarket.

My conclusion is that Costco has significantly lower prices on most food products and household goods. You can save even more money by choosing the "Kirkland" products which are Costco's in-store brand name.

One downside to shopping at Costco is that the selection of most product types is limited to just a few of the top selling brand names. I recently read some positive reviews of the Kirkland generic store brand products when compared to the other popular brands. So on this visit I bought the Kirkland brand laundry detergent, contact lens saline solution, facial tissue, shampoo and the conditioner. Most of the top brands of each of those product types had prices that were almost double the Kirkland brand. So far, I've found the quality of the Kirkland products to be quite satisfactory.

Another few cons of buying items in bulk at Costco is that you have to store the items somewhere in your house, eat the fresh items before they spoil, pay for the annual membership fee, and most people have to drive much further than they would going to their local supermarket.

If you have a large family or run a small business, then being a member is definitely worth the $50 to $100 per year fees. I even think the membership is worth it for small families or couples if you buy most of your food staples, personal hygiene products & household maintenance items at costco.
