As much as most shoppers love Costco, one of the common complaints is how much money you can spend in a single trip. Giant sizes plus irresistible deals add up quickly. But — even at Costco — you can actually find hundreds of items under $10 to help stretch your grocery budget.

Here are some of the best deals right now. Of course, you won’t want to leave without a famous $4.99 rotisserie chicken (or two, if you’re feeding a crowd).

Olde Thompson Kosher Flake Sea Salt, 5 lbs., $4.59 (Originally $5.99)

Great for preserving food, cooking, canning, or even making homemade pretzels, this 5-lb container of kosher sea salt will last a while, making it an incredible value for under $5.

Planters Dry Roasted Peanuts, 3.25 lbs, $6.59, originally $8.49

Peanuts make a great, healthy and protein-filled easy snack — as long as no one in your house is allergic. This giant, 3.25-lb tub costs less at Costco than at BJ’s, where it is $7.99. Walmart has a smaller container, 2.2 lbs. for $6.48, so it’s almost like you’re getting close to a full pound free at Costco.

Honey Bunches of Oats with Almond Cereal, 50 oz., $7.39, originally $9.69

It’s difficult these days to find cereal for less than $5 a box. At Costco, you can get a jumbo 50 oz. box, in two separate bags, for less than $10.

Palmolive Ultra Strength Liquid Dish Soap, 102 fl. oz., $8.19, originally $10.99

This price may bring you back to 2019 before household items fell victim to inflation. And, Palmolive costs even less than the Kirkland Signature brand thanks to this deal. The 90 oz. bottle of Kirkland’s dish soap goes for $9.79. You may want to stock up on Palmolive at this price. Since it’s such a large bottle, consider investing in a small squirt bottle from the dollar store to keep on your counter. Just refill it from the larger bottle as needed.
