So, who else LOVES shopping at Costco
(p/k/a/ Price Club)?! For those of you who aren't familiar with the store, it's just a HUGE discount warehouse full of absolutely EVERYTHING, for cheap
(a lot of it in bulk)! We're talking TVs, computers, clothes, books, DVDs, CDs, alcohol, tools, food, furniture, tires, their own gas station, etc., etc, etc... It's great!
We recently got a membership when my Mom was in town helping us move. It's the first time I've had a membership there since about 10 years ago, in my early collegiate days... Funny story about how we got our FREE membership (it's usually like $45 a year, or so). My Mom and aunt took my wife over to our local Costco about 3 minutes away. In order to be (free) on my Mom's membership, my wife Patty had to somehow be "connected" to someone else already on her membership card. So my Mom told them Patty was my sister's "partner"...
So apparently my wife is therefore now a lesbian ("not that there's anything wrong with being gay
" - Seinfeld)...
Anyways, we finally made our first trip over there this afternoon, and it was almost as fun as hanging out in Best Buy (my favorite store). I browsed the widescreen TVs, computers, clothes, DVDs, CDs, and other assorted goodies, while Patty was off buying food and supplies by the truckload. Unfortunately, we only had an hour in there before they closed, so our trip was cut short. But we still managed to do almost $300 in damage there by the time we had checked out.
Not to mention all the tasty samples of food and beverage they often have around the store! Enough to qualify for a nice square meal if you make the rounds in their entirety!
Needless to say, we'll be visiting there a lot more often from now on. Might even be buying a new computer and TV from them pretty soon too! So who else has a Costco
membership, and loves shopping there?
