Default COSTCO Crazy Tracy

Okay so we got Costco here recently and I finally drove over, about 35 minutes away from home, and I joined up. Well you should have seen my eyes popping out of my head at some of the stuff they sell and the sizes of it.
I spent heaps, nearly $400 but I bet I saved heaps too. I clean for my work so I bought a lot of cleaning stuff. I'm off to the regular shop to work out how much I saved now LOL

Oh And I bought some os those American Peanut Butter Cups OMG I don't even eat Peanut Butter but these little babies were soooo yummy. I have a great big container of them because they only sold them in big packs. But I bet they won't last long rofl.

Just thought I'd share I Costco

though, I didn't see any software but maybe I missed it in all the excitement of the shopping high hee hee

Costco is evil.... boy do I miss it! And, LOL, I pre-bought our Halloween candy because the commissary runs out in the week or so before Halloween... all the peanut butter cups are gone!

They should have software. And camera's. And all sorts of fun gadgets for gals like us.

Yep, love/hate Costco !! I can't get out of there for under $100 ever! And believe me, I've tried! Diane is right, every time you go in you'll see different stuff. We just bought hubby 3 gorgeous dress shirts, crisp pinpoint oxfords, for $18 each !!

How funny. The p-nut butter cups are addicting....and yummy. I like them cold in the refrigerator.
We go to Sam's club. It is less than 3 miles whereas Costco is about an hour.

I love Costco too! yep hate it too, always spend too much! The closest one for me is about an hour and 20 minutes south not to mention $20 to cross the darn bridge to get there.

Oh those p-nut butter cups who doesn't love them! When my kids were young I made them a cookie jar full at a time.

I don't have a membership but my mom does so I usually go with her. We love Saturdays when they have all the samples, you can practically eat lunch LOL. I'm pretty sure they have EVERYTHING there. The one by my parents even has a gas station. She often brings big boxes of snacks for the boys from there and diapers!! Love my mom and Costco!

Please Tracy, tell me this isn't the first time you've ever had a Reese's peanut butter cup! We Americans have grown up on these, I guess we're spoiled . Be careful with them though... I'm sure these yummy treats are major contributors to America's expanding waistline.

Yep, I practically live there, lol.

Does yours have the photo center too? Whenever I'm doing a lot of photo layout printing I use Costco.. upload online and pick them up there an hour later, saves me time and money over printing them on my home printer.
