    Best of Costco Deals: Everyday Prices

    Costco Deals

    Editor’s note: You’ll generally find better deals on everyday items like toiletries and paper goods if you play The Drugstore Game. However, Costco has great prices on certain items like cheese, responsibly sourced chocolate chips, and more. And this handy list of the everyday prices at Costco should help you save even more! {Click the blue button to see the full list. Note that while we’ve done our best to find the right prices, the prices at your store may vary due to regional differences.}

    Make Homework Easier with Homework Caddies

    Homework Caddies - chieffamilyofficer.com

    When my boys are older, we’ll probably have to get desks and chairs so they can study in their rooms, but for now, they do their homework near me while I make dinner or work on my laptop. For years, we’ve had an area with homework supplies, including a mug standing in as a pencil holder on a bookcase, a tub full of crayons, another tub with glue sticks, and so on.

    But I got sick of watching my children – especially the youngest, who works the furthest away from the supplies but seems to need the most variety – constantly walking back and forth. So this school year, I’ve made the boys the homework caddies you see above. The caddies themselves were just $1 each at Target in The One Spot section, and each caddy contains:

    Mechanical pencils
    Colored pencils
    An eraser
    Crayons
    Glue sticks
    Pencil sharpener

    The only thing I deliberately left out was a pair of scissors, because I thought it would be too dangerous. {It would probably be fine, but just isn’t worth the risk.} I substantially pared down the color selection when it came to the crayons, but my kids really don’t need blue green and sea foam to do their homework.

    And, I accomplished my mission, as I no longer see my youngest walking back and forth from the supplies area to his homework area!
