Said to see I've gotten no props for these caskets I picked out :'(

I'm being cremated.

Caskets are for suckers, man.

Costco Appreciation Thread!


I appreciate Costco. Purchasing in bulk has saved me a load of cash. Never again will I be looking for pickled walnuts as I know that my inventory has enough to last until 2094.

Just a head's up to you Costco members:  They're selling BOTH versions (OT and Prequels) of the absolutely incredible Star Wars Chronicles books for only $90 each (they retail for $150).  Great deal if you can get 'em!

Have to say with the $4.39/gal gas prices around here, I'm loving my Costco membership even more these days.

Last night's "I didn't really need it but can't resist the siren song of Costco" buy - giant 2.5 lb bag of M&Ms.  Mmmm...

I recently moved out of my parents' place and there's a Costco nearby... we've always been a Sam's Club family but I want to give Costco a shot.

We live less than a mile from a Costco and have a membership.  I buy propane there (about half the cost for a tank fill) and gas (about $.020-0.25 a gallon less) and maybe shop for food 5-6 times a year.  The proximity for the fuel pays for the membership but I don't get too excited by Costco because their hours are too limited and I can't find times when it's not busy and I hate people, by and large.  I don't blame them with a $10.00/hr minimum wage for closing registers, but it does cost them my business.

Yeah, we have a membership and shop for a few things there weekly - milk, bread, etc. Gas is always cheaper there too.

But yeah, checking out is absolutely dreadful. It's ALWAYS a complete cluster*** and there is NEVER a short line to look for. That alone makes the trip unappealing. My wife usually does that one.

I think you should start ending almost every statement with that phrase.

I love Costco.  Like other have said, love the gas savings alone.  With 4 kids, we buy most of our sundries there - meat, school lunch stuff, pop, paper products, etc.

The only thing is, no matter what I go there for, I almost always end up buying something I had no intention to buy.  It's like my impulse buying gene activates as soon as I walk in there.

Last time I went to Costco, it was an impulse buy of cheap 5-pack of socks for $6.  Time before that it was a 2.5lb bag of M&Ms.   ::)

As long as you avoide the impulse buy of a 70" LED TV you should be fine.

Don't waste your time on the 70".  It looks tiny when side by side with the 80".  I'm hoping the 4K/ultra-HD sets drive the price of that down to around $3000 for Christmas and it will be mine.  Then I won't have to venture into movie theaters anymore and that will make me happy because there are too many buffoons in movie theaters playing with their phones and I hate people.
