Deals to Meals – Meal planning ideas for October 19

Deals-to Meals-menu-planning

Here is your October 19 installment of Deals to Meals – every week we go through the grocery ads, find the very best deals and suggest meals that you can plan with the deals. Meal planning is so important to saving money – you buy what’s on sale and build meals from your deals.

We organize the menu ideas based on specific stores – so you can either look for meals you like and shop that store, or if you’re pretty store-loyal you’ll have ideas that will make the most of the sales!

We’d love your suggestions, please leave a comment on this post with the types of meals you’re planning this week.

Costco – Gluten-free foods list *Updated October 2014!*

Costco-Gluten-Free-Foods-Lists

It can be hard to find gluten-free deals, but Costco has some great gluten-free offerings! We put together this list of Costco gluten-free deals so you can reference it when looking for gluten-free bargains.

We scoured the Costco warehouse and read hundreds of labels to find as many gluten-free foods as we could. We’ve listed them below, grouped by area of the warehouse, to make them easy for you to find. Our focus was on packaged and prepared foods – foods that were nearly impossible to find gluten-free versions of a few years ago.

Please note – all the foods on this list are labeled “No Gluten” or “Gluten Free.” However, the vast minority were not “Certified Gluten Free.” What’s the difference? Foods that are Certified Gluten Free are typically produced in a facility that doesn’t process wheat or other ingredients that contain gluten. This eliminates the risk of cross-contamination on shared manufacturing equipment. Foods marked No Gluten or Gluten Free may not have gluten ingredients, but could have trace amounts of gluten from other products made in the same facility. Depending on your reason for avoiding gluten in your diet, this difference could be really important.

For a comprehensive Costco Price list check out our Costco Price list more than 850 items listed by per unit price!

This list is updated as of October 2014. Prices and availability will change depending on warehouse location and time.
