Costco Life

Costco Life

As the one who does all the cooking in the household, I also do all the shopping.  It’s been a challenge this year, especially with inflation as high as 8.5%.  That’s why I’m grateful for Costco and buying everything I can in bulk.  Yes, I’m eventually going to use those thirty rolls of toilet paper and that giant box of Tide.  About the only thing I don’t get there is produce.  Kris and I wouldn’t be able to eat those fifty pounds of onions before they go bad.

I have a gold card membership, so I get 3% back on my purchases.  So, between that and the $25.00 gift card from Proctor & Gamble, my membership this year will be FREE!!!!

Then there’s Costco gas.  The higher gas prices are, the longer the lines at the pumps, but it’s worth it.  Costco gas used to be five or six cents cheaper than Arco – which was ten or twelve cents cheaper than other stations.  This past week it was 40 cents cheaper than Arco.  With a 15-gallon tank, that’s six dollars a week.

As a member, I also get the Costco magazine every month.

Aside from announcing sales, they usually have recipes.  Once in a while, there is something worth trying.  Most are “eh.”  And then there are a few… special ones…

“NO.  Just, NO.” – Vincent Rinhart.

Costco is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.  One of the ways they are celebrating is with a special edition of Monopoly.

Instead of houses, you build food courts.  Instead of hotels, you build Costcos.  And they have special tokens like a pallet jack, a soda and hot dog and a shopping cart.

If I played more often, I’d be tempted to buy it.

I wonder if I can get it somewhere else cheaper?
