Friends, lovers, congregation. I have Good news! The Kirkland bed sheets are an inspiration, a new blessing upon me bestowed by the ‘stco itself.

The Kirkland brand sheets are a bit more expensive than the Charisma ones but they're so drat good!

I bought one like a month ago and already drank it all. It's a good idea but honestly I was only impressed with a few of the beers, most of them aren't very good. I don't think it was worth the money and I would have been better off just buying the Sam Adams variety pack or something.
I did it last year, and yeah it wasn't great imo. also most of them had weirdly enough "expired" tho i dont think expired beer really tastes any diff but maybe.

it also didn't help i dont drink much so i didnt want to crack one open each day, and then i'd end up drinking 4 or so on the weekend and still had a few leftover rolling into february.

Costco sells these amazing frozen pucks of French Onion soup that melt in your microwave and have cheese and croutons and are just about as good as you could hope for FO to be outside of a fancy restaurant.

those sound good, but can you cook them in an oven or something instead? i dont have a microwave and usually use my flashxpress toaster oven to cook things quickly instead

I'm 70% sure there are conventional oven directions on the box.

I think pretty much all microwavable foods usually have oven instructions. In college I used to bake my hot pockets in the oven because I was a Fancy Poor Man.

I believe the tj version and the Costco version are the same brand but at Costco you get like 6 for the price of 4. They're def pretty good.

Dodge street or la vista? The latter never has gas lines or much of a crowd on weekend. The exodus from dodge to the promised la vista has been miraculous.

I constantly tell my family out of state to get a membership, and yet it sounds like they have not! Being a Costco missionary is a challenge not without periods of doubt, but those dogs and free refills keep me faithful and inspired.

In the middle. It's extremely good for the price, but not as good as the Aeron. It also depends on your height/weight. If you need an Aeron C the Costco will be less comfortable.

If you use hearing aids:

CVS 48 hearing aid batteries: $29.18

Kirkland 48 hearing aid batteries: $8.49

That alone more than saves the membership fee over a year. CVS can suck allll the dicks.

Even better the standard Kirkland Signature hearing aid is $1999 with free testing. Equivalent Rexton (whom I think makes the KS one) is over $4k at independents.
Coincidentally I get $2k every 4 years for hearing aids. Now I just have to remember to use the dam things.

Thanks I'll have to look into those when I need new ones. Hearing aids are such a scam. Like I'm no expert but I have a hard time believing they have to cost $4000 in the age of $10 burner cellphones.

When I was a kid I never whined to my parents about having to go to Costco because of the free samples. I assume Costco realizes this effect and I salute their business savvy.

This is especially great for us, because my mother-in-law can’t hear a damned thing without her hearing aids, which she never wears, anyways, but leaves turned on all the time regardless so that she goes through, like, two batteries a week.
