Groceries are expensive and gluten free food tends to cost more than other grocery items. Our family loves to save money buying in bulk at Costco and fortunately, Costco has a great selection of gluten-free products for us to choose from.
Products will vary from store to store (even within the same city) and below are the gluten free products available in our California Bay Area stores that could be available in yours too.
If you spy something gluten free at Costco, please leave a comment and let us all know. If you are sticking to a budget, you can find more tips for living gluten free on a budget!

We had it last night with several gluten free friends and nobody reacted!! I will get it added to the shopping list soon so just pencil it in for now.)
