My Partner And I Bought A Costco Membership Earlier This Year; Here Are The Things We've Kept Stocked Ever Since

I'll admit it: I get the Costco hype now...

Hi! I'm Grace. I'm a Pittsburgh-based recipe developer — and I live (and grocery shop) with my fiancé. We used to think Costco memberships were exclusively for large families. What would the two of us do with a carton of five dozen eggs? But after visiting the store with a friend earlier this year, I realized Costco sells a lot of our go-to groceries — and not always in ridiculous amounts, either.

Needless to say, I caved on buying a membership — and I haven't looked back since. My cart is always a mix of my usual go-tos and brand-new favorites, like Costco's cult-favorite sheet cake and Kirkland's Sauvignon Blanc. In no particular order, here are the items I've been loving the most so far:
