Costco always comes in clutch with all the discounted, high-quality products you could need, but sometimes there are so many items to choose from, it’s hard to find the best deals they offer. You might find yourself doing a lot of shopping this summer, whether it’s for party supplies, outdoor seating, or pool toys, and you might be wondering which are best to buy from our favorite discount warehouse. You don’t have to ponder any longer! Here are seven summer essentials you can buy at Costco.

1. Frozen Drink Maker

It’s hot, and what better way to cool down than to whip up your own margarita. Save money on all those bar tabs by making your own blended drinks at home using this Margaritaville Key West Frozen Concoction Maker. Make your favorite slushy drinks all without leaving the comfort of your own home—pool party, anyone?

2. Sunscreen

Sunscreen is a summer necessity, but it can get pretty pricey. Costco to the rescue! You can get a two-pack of Neutrogena Beach Defense Spray with SPF 70+ for the price of one, and it even comes with a bonus mini lotion you can throw into your purse or pocket.

3. Pool Floaties

Summertime means pool time, and what better way to bask in the sun than by sitting back and relaxing in a tube-style floaty. This Poolmaster Day Dreamer two-pack has a built-in beverage pocket—you’ll never have to leave the pool—and you can choose from red, blue and yellow.

It’s important to stay hydrated, and you can take clean drinking water with you wherever you go with this Aquasana Active Clean Filtered Water Bottle 2-pack.

No A/C at home? Stress no more. This Vornado Full-Size Whole Room Fan will keep you cool even during summer’s worst heat waves. The deep-pitched blades move air up to 100 feet, but it takes up minimal floor space so it won’t get in the way.
