Costco Cheese Board Shopping List

Today I’m sharing my Costco Cheese Board Shopping List with you. Cheese board and Rebecca are basically synonymous. When in doubt, serve a cheese board. I love a good cheese board; they’re simple and beautiful. We make a simple board every Friday night for our family movie night, and if you’re invited to a party at my house, chances are, I’ll put out some sort of cheese board.

Three-Year Catch Up

But first, a tiny bit of catching up is in order since it’s been a while since I last published a blog post! They even changed the backend and I had to teach myself how to draft a blog post! Ha! Lots of life has happened since I last shared in this space, in January 2021. At that time, I was eagerly awaiting our 5th child’s birth. Saoirse just turned 3 years old. Her home birth was wonderful, and I still have every intention of sharing her birth story.

In March of 2023, we sold our darling 100 year old farmhouse in Purcellville, VA and moved to Shepherdstown, WV (only 35 minutes west). We’re approaching one year in this new [rental] home. We are still prayerfully considering when and where we will be living long term, but this *new* home is providing a much-needed resting place and time of spreading out for our family. I’ll share about our new home soon, too!  

Back to Costco

Back to the purpose of today’s blog post, one of my favorite places: Costco! Years ago, a reader shared with me that, once she learned I bought my cheese at Costco, she felt I was so much more relatable. Of course I shop at Costco; I grew up in a family of 9, I now have my own family of 7, and it makes so much sense to shop there! I have my monthly go-tos, my cheeseboard go-tos, and our occasional favorites. 

For years, I’ve promised my Costco shopping list. Today, I’m sharing my Costco cheese board shopping list! I’ve used this list when putting together my A Daily Gathering dinners, a wedding reception for 120 people, and large family gatherings. (Let me know if you have questions about quantities!)

You can read the list below, or grab it HERE (it will be delivered via email)! I’ve divided the list up into different elements you’ll want to include on your cheese board: cheese, savory, sweet, vehicles, crunchy, briny, vegetables (if including).

I definitely don’t buy ALL of these items for every cheese board I’m creating. Many Costco locations don’t carry all of these items (or only do seasonally). So, choose your favorite items when shopping, or the items available at your location, at the particular time of year you’re shopping.

Pro tip: If you see your Costco has Castlevetrano olives available (and maybe even on sale), stock up! They frequently “go away” for months at a time, and their sale price is UNBEATABLE!
