This week I went to Costco for some veggies and stoking up on a few bulk items we purchase there. We have some items we almost always purchase at Costco, Almonds and Dates are great snacks, and huge bags of spinach for salads, omelets and smoothies.

This trip to Costco we picked up the following:
  • Spinach $3.89
  • Mushrooms $4.99
