If you are a regular Costco shopper, you are probably well aware of the benefits of stockpiling certain items. That’s half the fun of going.

Costco allows us to be prepared for just about any problem that comes our way. In most instances, everything is fair game because of the quantities that are available, but Costco has run into a little snag as of late that has to be addressed.

Before you head to the store to add to your latest stockpile, there are certain things that you need to know. Regular visitors probably know all about Costco’s Kirkland signature items, which allow us to enjoy name-brand items at a fraction of the usual price. For example, their batteries and diapers are already confirmed as the big-ticket name brands that we know and love.

So why are there going to be purchasing limits placed on these items (and others)? Costco is currently having a sales event that is only available to members, which will be going on until August 29.

Are you someone who likes to buy the women’s bike shorts that they have to offer? If so, you are going to be limited to 10 pairs per purchase.

Coleman temperature control tumbler cups and OXO plastic containers also come with their own limits, as each customer is only allowed to take home five apiece.

Kirkland beauty wipes lovers will need to consider the fact that their purchases are also going to be limited to five per member until the sale is over.

Yes, there are snacks that are going to be affected by these limits, so you will want to make sure that you have been fully educated on the matter. Peanut butter, Eggo waffles, Frito Lay chip variety boxes, Goldfish crackers, and Veggie Straws are just a few of the items that are being affected.

Be sure to take the time to see which items have been discounted and how much you are allowed to take home before heading to Costco. The Offers page on the company website is here to tell you everything that you need to know.

What items are you most excited to purchase during the sale? Are you disappointed by any of the limits? Let us know!
