Does the kitchen cupboard look bare? It might be time for a Costco run. One great way to rack up some Costco savings is to buy items from the retailer that you can use to restock your kitchen.

That might mean purchasing staples such as butter or condiments. Or perhaps it is time to update your kitchenware.

Check out the following items from Costco that can give your kitchen a boost. Just keep in mind that prices can vary depending on where you live.
