Hi Guys! So today let's talk about Costco and how marvelous it is! Because I seriously think Costco has some of the best deals around! Today I am sharing with you my current favorites from Costco and some new deals I just found!
Chefman Cordless Glass Electric Kettle
One of the best purchases I ever made was this kettle!! Seriously! I am in LOVE with this kettle!! And I have actually bought it twice! And for $19 bucks its more than worth the price! I had been looking for a long time for a kettle with a tea infuser included in it but could never find one that wasn't a ridiculous price. I looked everywhere from Home Goods to Macy's. I finally found a cute little blue one at Ross. The first time I used it, the water boiled over and made a huge mess on my stove top. I assumed it would whistle or something when it was hot. Nope. Just boiled right over. Total pain. Then walking the isles of Costco, I saw this. And I am so happy I actually walked over to it and checked it out. This little kettle has EVERYTHING that I wanted. It's pretty, it's biug enought to make tea for more than 2 people, it's easy to clean and most important - it has a tea infuser inside!!! So I put one in my giant grocery cart and kept moving. When I got home I followed the instructions for first time use and then once it was ready... I made my first pot of tea! And guess what?!?! I loooooove it!! And I use it every single day. Every morning I make a full pot of Green Tea and drink it all day long. I just pour a glass over ice and then when I need more I can just press the button and reheat the rest for another glass. And it heats up very quickly so you do not have to wait forever for your tea. I use this with loose tea dn with tea bags. It works great both ways!! And my first one actually got shoved off the counter top while cleaning and the handle broke so I quickly ran back to Costco to buy another. This is honestly one of my FAVORITE buys from Costco. If you love to drink tea or have friends/family who drink tea - this would be an excellent gift for them. I don't see it online but they do have them in the store.
Oversized Mason Jars - Set of Four
Who DOESN'T love a good mason jar - no matter the size?! Am I right??! This is a set of FOUR huge mason jars that are great for storing your sugar and flour... or just about anything else! I had been looking for something to go in the new house since my old jars colors didn't really match the new house counter tops. So these were perfect since they're clear glass. And the tops are super tight. The suction is really great and keeps everything super fresh! I use mine to keep brown sugar, granulated sugar, powdered sugar and flour fresh on the counter top. These are a steal at $19.99 and definitely worth the price. Another great gift idea for just about anyone! Below is a picture of mine on my counter top. I love them!
Kitchen Aid Four Piece Mini Mitt Set
I don't know about you but every male in my life can never find an oven mitt that actually fits their ginormous man hands. So when these actually fit - they were a MUST BUY! These are great gifts for the guys in your life who enjoy cooking - or at lest helping out in the kitchen. Everyone should have an oven mitt that fits and keep those precious fingers protected - and these mitts do just that! They came in a few colors at the store but I bought black/gray. I also bought a bundle of Jennifer Adams dish towels. They were I think like $12.99 for 10 towels and I love them because they have the loop so you can hang them on your cabinet knob. They don't offer them online but they have a huge box stacked high with different colors in the store. They're another great deal. I feel like I always need new kitchen towels. And these are super cute!
T3 Single Pass 1 inch Hair Straightener & Styling Iron
I had been wanting to get this straightener for awhile. I purchased the T3 Whirl Trio at Ulta last year - after eyeing that for MONTHS - and I love it! It was very expensive but worth every penny. So when I saw that Costco had the T3 straightener, I finally decided to buy it. I have used it twice now and it's fabulous!!! It heats up so quickly and is very smooth on my hair. My old one used to kind of pull at my hair some times but this one doesn't do that at all. It's so smooth and easy to use. It's almost effortless. And it's really gorgeous to have laying out on your counter top. This is a little pricey at $59.99 but I feel it's completely well worth the money. They also have the T3 hair dryer - which I will probably buy soon as well. I have just been so impressed with the T3 line so the dryer will be next.
Kiehl's Creme De Corps Soy Milk & Honey Body Butter, 8ounce
I loooooove this body butter so much! I am obsessed with it! I bought it about a month or two ago and have been using it non stop! It's just SO good! The texture is amazing and it makes my skin feel so silky soft. Anywhere else and this is $40 or more. When I bought mine I also bought the face mask - which is no longer available. But they do have the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate available online for $49.99. Both would make great gift ideas!
Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration, 1 L
I love the way this smells!! There is just something about coconut that takes me away to a better more relaxing place. Ahhhhh, so good! And this is SUCH a great deal on a 34 ounce (1 liter) bottle of Shea Moisture. They offer both the shampoo & conditioner. At Ulta you can buy a 13 ounce bottle for $11.49 - so $17.99 for this size bottle is a real steal!
Name Brand Handbags, Wallets & Clutches
Costco has great prices on handbags, wallets and clutches from brands like Michael Kors, Coach, YSL, Prada, Jimmy Choo, Kate Spade, Burberry, and more! Sometimes they offer these in the store, but the bigger selection is online at www.costco.com. These are my current favorite deals.
Coach Slim Accordian Wallet, black $99.99
Kate Spade Vivian Kingston Drive Tote, Cashew Butter $199.99
Michael Kors Continental Wallet, Acorn $129.99
Prada Double Zip Tote, Gray $1,979.99
Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Souple Duffle, Black $1,999.99
Hansgrohe Status Lavatory Faucet, $74.99 (in 3 colors)
I saw these in the store and almost bought them. If I were at a point where it was time to tear out the kitchen and bathrooms - these would have been in my cart! But that is still a ways away from happening. But these were absolutely GORGEOUS in the store - and the price is right for the entire package you get! They come in 3 different finishes depending on your style: Brushed Nickel, Chrome and Oil Rubbed Bronze.
I think most, if not all, of these items would make great gifts for the holidays! I know I would be VERY happy receiving any of these items! Isn't it funny how as we get older, getting some new faucet fixtures makes us ridiculously happy?!? Such happiness!
hope these gave you some ideas for gifts and new buys that you may have been missing out on. I always tell people to check Costco online because you'd be shocked at the things they have listed. Like that giant plush 93" plush teddy bear?! I mean, it's completely ridiculous.... but I don't know a single person who WOULDN'T smile if that were sitting near the tree on Chirstmas morning. By the way, they're available again this year at Costco!
I'm going to let you guys in on a little secret I have. I buy SO MUCH MAKEUP and SKINCARE from COSTCO.com. Yep. There. I said it. Now you know. WHY do I buy it from Costco you ask??? Well because you absolutely CANNOT beat their prices. You just can't. I mean $17.49 for a full size bottle of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid is unbeatable! No where are you going to find a price that low for a brand new bottle. This product sells for $41.00. Yes, you read that correctly. The exact same size bottle sells at Ulta and Sephora and on Becca's website for $41.00. Currently this is on sale on Becca's website for $28.70... still no where close to COSTCO prices! So I would be a fool to NOT buy my makeup and skincare products from COSTCO.COM. Now, do they ALWAYS have what I need? No. They do not always carry the same products. But I do check their website religiously because I do not want to miss out on a good deal. But they have had the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector for the entire summer. I know. I bought two bottles already. To see what else I bought from COSTCO keep reading. I'm going to share it all!!
