Costco Deals for October Food Storage

The new Costco coupon book (valid 10/11/12 - 11/4/12) includes great discounts on some of the items we are stocking up on in October. Here is a week-by-week run down for those of you with Costco memberships. Regular price is listed first followed by coupon if any then sales price. I also show some items not on sale just for price comparison. Do you have enough smoke detectors? Do they work? (Prices may be local.)

  1. You don't know me and I can't remember how I even found your blog but I've been following it for awhile. I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate what you are doing for so many of us! Keep at it because it's a great service you are doing. If I was ever called to be the Ward Preparedness Specialist, I would hope I could do the job as well as you are doing here.

  2. I think we need to make the semi-sweet chocolate morsels top priority at our house because my wife makes excellent chocolate chip cookies!


Thanks for your comments and suggestions!
