Here, we look at nine Kirkland Signature brand products from Costco that you might want to think twice before buying.
Spices. The McCormick spice firm claims that dried spices kept in jars last, on average, between one and four years. Therefore, there is no need to purchase numerous spices.
Almond Flour. The issue is that, according to Does it Go Bad, almond flour only keeps for a few months after its sell-by date and, at best, a year in the freezer. Don't purchase in quantity, then.
Diapers. The price of diapers at Costco is not the lowest anywhere, claims Natural Baby Life. Walmart receives that honour instead.
Gel dishwashing soap. While Kirkland has a lot of highly rated products, buying a name brand competitor for a little bit more is preferable because cheaper is not necessarily better.
Coffee. Be honest with yourself about how much coffee you actually plan to consume.
Facial tissues and toilet paper. These paper products for our most delicate places receive very poor scores from Reader's Digest for qualities like durability and softness.
Milk. Dairy products are prominently included. It could be more sensible to purchase your milk in single regular-shaped jugs.
Fresh Meat. It is preferable to get fresher, smaller quantities of deli meat from your neighbourhood butcher or grocery store.
