Costco Price Comparison...Baking Goods

Costco had a cheaper per unit price than anything at the grocery stores for baking goods. And, there are rarely high value coupons that would make the unit price similar. If you are going to purchase things like flour and sugar in bulk, you can either invest in airtight containers and store in the pantry, or split the purchase with someone else. The biggest "winners" for Costco in baking goods were:
  • Pure Vanilla Extract (20x more expensive at grocery store)
  • Ground Cinnamon (10x more expensive at grocery store)
  • Yeast (8x more expensive at grocery store)
  • Pure Clover Honey (4x more expensive at grocery store)
  • Pure Sea Salt (4x more expensive at grocery store)

  1. You can freeze flour and sugar in airtight containers too, mom always used to do that! Not sure about 13lbs of baking soda but I do use it to clean so maybe it would be used quick enough. :)

  2. We freeze whole wheat flour, but I had never thought to freeze A/P. Good idea!

  3. I don't know where you're located but we have Sharp Shopper here which is a discount outlet grocery store. They also have a lot of bulk foods. I got cinnamon (not Saigon) for $2.23 for 1.05 pounds! I've also gotten a 5 pound bag of whole wheat flour for $.99! Always get our choc chips at Costco. Just found your site from Money Saving Mom. I will be a regular visitor now!

  4. Hi Caroline! Thanks so much for visiting! We don't have Sharp Shopper here in the West, but it sounds like an awesome place to get deals! Good quality outlet grocery stores can be great places to stock up on non-perishables.


What do you think? I love hearing from my readers!
