If you shop at Costco, you’re going to love this! Erin at $5 Dinners has done the work for you by selecting recipes and creating a Costco shopping list for 20 meals from Costco that you can prepare for $150. And now, we’ve taken the guesswork out of wine pairing by selecting some fantastic wines ($15 or less with one exception) to serve with these recipes.

First, head over to $5 Dinners to print out the recipes and the Costco shopping list that includes all the ingredients that you’ll need to make these 20 dinners. Erin’s post includes links to all of the recipes as well as a detailed ingredient list. However, if you want to make things even easier, you can purchase a download for $1.49 that includes the shopping lists, recipes, and ingredients in an easy printable format.

Then, check out our wine suggestions below and pick up some bottles to serve with your meals. These wines are widely distributed, but because inventory varies depending on your area, you may or may not be able to find these wines at your local Costco.
