watches are perfectly acceptable accessories for men and if you look down on and get angry over people who wear wrist watches you have some kinda personal problem imo.

I have a Skagen, it looks cool and didn't cost an absurd amount of money

anyway

Are you sure shopping at Costco is really cheaper when almost everything is in such large quantities? You guys really never buy more than you end up actually consuming?

If you've got two people in your household the bag of mini oranges lasts roughly a week. They start turning after a week and a half. Costco has it down to a science.

Costco was an institution.

The only people dumb enough not to see it were poor people who can't think more than 2 weeks ahead. WAAAAA I have to pay 40 dollars NOW to save literally HUNDREDS of dollars on gas and groceries over the year WAAAAA.

My mom was a teacher and she said the saddest thing about her job was the number of kids who'd come to school with 200 dollar shoes with the latest iphone (6-7th graders) but be on free lunches and stealing everything that wasn't nailed down in the classroom like pencils.

I don't always buy $200 Nikes but when I do it's on a payday loan. And I don't always buy an iPhone 7 but when I do I make sure to leave just enough money for a plan which requires me to put minutes on my phone.

Well, when you inherit your first 10lb bag of frozen chicken, you divide it into securities which are then sold by the executive card members. They then split those securities among the 30 packs of paper towels or tissues depending on the market. Then your frozen chicken equity builds and you can use that equity to buy 5lb frozen California Blend vegetables. After those mature, you can sell all dividends, buy even more 10 packs of Clorox Bleach, divide into securities, and finally enter the wide open GOLD member market.

Bam, you just saved your first million by shopping at your local Costco.

It's a toilet paper market right now though, so things are slow but very stable.


I have no idea what any of these financial words mean or how to use them.

My Costco was so crowded today it was literally impossible to move. You just had to flow with the crowd. I can't believe the fire Marshall hadn't shut the place down.

Also I got three gigantic pies for $18.

Though day before thanksgiving is a special Madmax Thunderdome hell at every single grocery store, especially the ones around here are awful

As a high schooler, one of our favorite pastimes was grabbing a bottle of hard liquor, sneaking into one of their demo sheds one-by-one, bolting the door, passing the bottle around until it was empty, then staggering out as fast as we could and going to the local burger king.

It's how her species communicates



I haven't bought a second box of loving trash bags in many years, I don't know how many bags are in this loving thing but it's too huge roles and it's not even close to running out. Two big rear end rolls and they appear to break the laws of physics or are literally Jesus.

Also I got the Costco Visa, that's right fucks, THAT Visa. Get it if you haven't, seriously. I get paid, pay off the balance, and use it for every single spending I can except the mortgage. Bills, groceries, gas, parking at school, collecting the cash from friends at a restaurant and paying on my card. All cash back! Paid for a cruise, broke up with the girl so I cancelled it, got a refund, and still earned cash back on the original payment. Over $400 earned at it's not even close to being a year in my wallet.

My ex had a membership there, it's totally identical to a Sam's or a Costco. One time we bought a 55" TV and a wheel of brie, just cause. Welp, that's my BJ's story.

Oh and also making jokes about getting BJ's in bulk gets old way faster than I thought it would

Just bought a couple whole tenderloins (PSMO because I like the chain) to make some beef wellington for Thanksgiving. I also grabbed a bottle of their 25 year single malt which is decent but unfortunate in that it is bottled at 40% which isn't quite right for scotch.

Also my costco wasn't super crowded but I also went while regular folk were at their jobs. I mean it was more crowded than a normal Wednesday afternoon certainly but lines were only 3 deep so not so bad at all. They had some Indian yogurt to sample and it was just ok.

Oh I got a bunch of king crab legs (loving expensive it was like 200 dollars for a box of them), shrimp, lump crab, lobster tails, and langoustines for appetizers. I couldn't decide if leading with cold seafood stuff was weird with the rest of the menu (beef wellington, mashed potatoes and gravy, asparagus, salad, popovers, different desserts).
