Trail Mix, in spite of the higher price now M&Ms, 3 1/4 pounds of heaven! Bagels Apples Pies 60 eggs for $4.29 Almond & chocolate covered ice cream bars My wife was shopping at Costco once and found a $100 bill laying on the floor in the middle of the aisle. It was tightly rolled up and looked almost like a green straw. hmmm.gif Groceries were cheap that day!

There is a careful recruitment process. Only the most robust and calorie-driven are selected. It is sad to note however that my wife eats all the clear ones before they even have a chance to rope up.

we quit using Costco as there's only the two of us and we didn't need GALLONS of mayonaise or GIANT PORTIONS of whatever. I do however, miss the 50 pound bags of cheap cat litter and especially all the free samples..... hmmm.gif what do you think...is $45 a year really worth it???? confused.gif
I save that much per year on gasoline alone, so everything else is gravy. I saved at least $20 last year on new rechargeable batteries and a charger. I saved at least $50 on my prescription glasses. And several hundred dollars on grocery items. But I have an advantage over most folks in that a Costco Business Center is only one mile from my house, so I have easy access to a relatively-uncrowded store. I was in and out in five minutes the other day to pick up a prescription for Tanja! biggrin.gif

contact lenses, batteries, gas, tomatoes, bread, meat (deep freeze comes in handy for those last two), tp, paper towels, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, oatmeal, pop, the occasional tub of jellybellies or gummy bears.... It's more like what don't I buy at Costco!

Good point, Jen, though you didn't state it "out loud", that since you live a ways out of a major town, it makes more sense for you to stock up on things, and if you are doing that, then Costco is a natural choice. So if you live close to a Costco, or far away from everything, it's a natural! agree.gif

When the nearest decent grocery store is 27 miles away, you do think about minimizing the trips... wink.gif

My best Costco purchase... This baby sucks it up and spits it out. It's a leaf blower/vacumm/mulcher. Raking leaves is a time waster! (Wouldn't you rather be hiking??) Overstuffed yard waste bins are a thing of the past! This device changed my life... And it can be yours for less than 100 bucks!

Alaskan Amber. I can't find a good beer that low of a price bottled for that price. That stuff comes from Ketchikan....so all ingredients have to be shipped INTO the city, and shipped OUT of the city. No easy task. And to keep the beer price that low I have to suspect the higher ups in that little company do not make much money. They just want to make good beer. So I am willing to support that.

The coffee... I guarantee I save more than $45.00 a year on coffee alone! I'm a little pissed they quit offering the Sumatra, though. coffee.gif That and those boneless pork loin chops. Oh, and the 24 packs of Bridgeport IPA. And laundry detergent. Batteries. Underbritches. Printer cartridges. Ibuprofen. Bird seed. Gorilla racks. Wine. Evaporated milk. Buffalo wings. Aluminum foil. Butter. Maybe I'll just print this out and go shopping!

Their brewery is in Juneau, not Ketchikan. But that doesn't change the fact that everything needs to be shipped in and out. I've been to the Alaskan brewery four or five times. They are nice folks. cheers.gif
