When you go grocery shopping, particularly during times of higher prices and inflation, you probably hit some stores on a regular basis. Maybe you think they always offer the best bargains – or at least the best ones on certain items.

For many shoppers in the United States, Costco is a place to find bargains. If you’re a regular Costco shopper, you know it offers low-cost items in larger sizes.

While some items at Costco are great deals that are hard to beat – that’s not the case with everything. Here are some items you may want to buy online at Amazon or a different store.

Diapers

Let’s start with diapers. If you’ve ever bought diapers at Costco, you know there are good deals. However, according to FinanceBuzz, you may want to look elsewhere. At the very least, check the per-unit price of the diapers – some brands are cheaper on Amazon compared to Costco’s generic brand.

Holiday Decor

This can be a bit tricky. Holiday decor isn’t typically available year-round in stores, so you may need to pick up decorations when you see them. However, customers have reported finding better deals online than at Costco.

Spices

You may be able to find a good deal on a huge tub or container of your favorite spice or seasoning at Costco. While it may seem like great value – most of us don’t need that huge amount, especially in a relatively short time. According to CNBC, “Ground spices have a limited shelf life of about six months, after which they lose their potency.”

School and Office Supplies

Check out Amazon for good deals on supplies for the kids for school or your own home office. According to The Motley Fool, you can save money by skipping Costco for these items.

Pet Food

You may be able to find good deals on pet food on Amazon. While it may not be as convenient as stopping by the store quickly on the way home, it could save you money.
