This post went up last week and after reading the comments I added more information in an effort to clarify.

The Ridley’s sale continues another week ending 3/12.

A reminder also that Paul’s also runs a similar case lot sale as Ridley’s

Sarah and I were talking about the Ridley’s case lot sale and the price at Costco. Since I needed to step into Costco while running other errands today, I checked out the prices on some common stock up items thinking that some of you might be thinking the same thing. Here are the prices of basic stock up items at Costco.

  • 25lbs of all purpose Flour – $7.15
  • 50lbs of all purpose Flour – $13.75
  • 25lbs of C & H sugar – $16.05
  • 25lbs of Blue Ribbon long grain rice – $18.49
  • 50lbs of Jasmine rice – $33.49
  • 25lbs of Pinto beans – $19.79
Here is a graph to help compare these prices to Ridley’s case lot sale that ends 3/12
Costco, every day prices Ridley’s case lot until 3/12 Ridley’s
25 lbs of Flour $7.15, or $0.29/lb $5.98, or $0.24/lb
50 lbs of Flour $13.75, or $0.28/lb ———–
25lbs of sugar $16.05, or $0.64/lb $13.48, or $0.54/lb Case of 10 (4lb packages) @$1.84 each, or $0.46/lb
This is the best buy if you can use and store 40lbs of sugar
long grain rice 25 lbs @ $18.49, or $0.79/lb 20lbs @ 9.98, or $0.50/lb
25 lbs of pinto beans $19.79 or $0.79/lb $18.98, or $0.95/lb

Have a Ridley’s near you and don’t have a Costco membership, their case lot has great stock up prices find the post HERE?

Ridley’s caselot sale ends 3/12. Get like items while supplies last, no rainchecks.

I don't have a Costco or Ridley's in my area, so this didn't help me.

I have been buying the flour at Paul's sales lately because it is a lot cheaper than Costco but mine is always lumpy. It needs to be sifted before I can use it. I don't know if it is the kind of flour it is or where I store it or what. Has anyone else noticed that?

Paul's is having pretty much the same case lot sale, and most of the prices are within pennies of the Ridley's price, so, to save the money in gas (we live out by Homedale) we just went to Paul's. For the exact same stuff that I would have bought at Ridley's, we paid $1.47 more, but probably saved $10 in gas.

I didn't see where you compared the two places and their prices, what did I miss?

so which was cheaper? Too much clicking around, and I forget by the time it loads. :( could you do a side by side, or at a glance on 1 page?

I never tire of reading your posts sharing what prices are out there. Its so disgusting the prices alaskans are charged for those that live out in the villages or Kotsebue, Barrow or Nome. And on top of that added price of shipping which is higher than it use to be. I tried to get in on the free sample for tea the other day but it was closed already. that would have made a nice gift for my friend who enjoys tea. I did get a nice deal one time on oh whats her name the gal with the orange color handle knives ? I don't have cable so its been a while since I've seen the show. Thanks for sharing what you do with others.

I'm confused too. I don't understand if you are saying these are a good buy and idea to purchase at Costco or if Ridley's has a better purchase price?

Thanks for the post. That's a really good price on the jasmine rice.

I found this post a bit confusing. I guess you're comparing the prices at Costco to the prices at Ridley's case lot sale, and not necessarily posting good stock up prices?
