Not sure on the tissues but much earlier ITT someone observed that the Kirkland paper towels and toilet paper are made under contract by the same companies that make the national brands. You're getting the same product at a lower price with a different label.

I buy the tissues. They're great.

My only gripe is that they stuff more tissues into the same sized box (compared to name-brand). This seems like a weird thing to complain about, but they compress so tightly that your first few pulls out of a fresh box either (a) rip from being stuck inside, or (b) you end up taking 3 or 4 tissues stuck together when you only wanted one. After the first ~10 tissues are out of the box, though, it's smooth sailing.

I love the paper towels. Thick, durable, long lasting. I find that when I run out and grab some from the normal stores that they disappear in like a day (per roll). They more I got to Costco, the more I fall in love; PBUC.

They are by far the best products you can ever buy. completely blows away every other brand, even if they're supposedly made by name brands they are so much better.

Everytime I run out of Costco TP or paper towels and dont want to dehumanize myself and face the crowded thunderdome, i end up buying some from target and its always o bad and i end up rushing out to costco the next day to buy poo poo that doesn't suck. I just keep forgetting how utterly inferior all other brands are out there.

seriously its like silky smooth but durable tp that graces my fragile buttocks. and paper towels are select-a-size and really absorbent and thick.

Went to Costco today. Went originally just to fill up my car but decided to go in and check out the recently completed renovations. New food court and bathrooms!

Also they were handing out the holiday sales booklets at the front door so if you are looking for sicknasty deals on tvs or whatevs its pretty good.

Bought the following:
- Sliced salami
- Frozen carrots/broccoli/cauliflower mix
- beer
- fresh mozz
- packaged rotisserie chicken pieces
-MAC N CHEASE TAKE N BAKE (!!!)

Opted to skip getting a hot dog or pizza.

Tonight dinner is chicken with broccoli and mac n cheese.

you should have bought a hot dog.

I buy the Kirkland TP. It comes in a crate-sized block. At first I was afraid that it would be the same product as previously bought at the unholy Sam's Club (forgive me). That was less than 1-ply -- more like .25 ply.

I can report that the Kirkland TP is of the highest quality. Your anus will pucker with satisfaction. Rejoice.

Kirkland paper towels are legit but unfortunately Kirkland toilet paper goes for the soft, foo-foo Charmin-esque style rather than the simplicity that is Scotts. Not my style, so I stick with Scotts to rub on my lovely rear end.

tfw you're peeing next to someone in the lineup and they don't know

Wiping your rear end with dry toilet paper is loving gross. Why Americans insist on doing that is beyond me. At least get the fuckin' flushable wipes you neanderthals.

Note: I am american I just don't get our habits sometimes

e: do you wipe up a mess with a dry sponge? Clean a kitchen floor with a dry mop? We implicitly understand that these are the actions of an idiot, but we are unable to extend this line of thinking to our buttholes, which is weird becaus your butthole is presumably more important than your sponge, but if you told someone you always used a dry sponge they would look at you like a loving idiot.

My home shredder finally broke, after several years. I checked for similar models at Staples, Office Max, and Target, but nothing seemed quite right. Then tonight I stopped by Costco, and right in front, at the entrance, they had a newer model of Royal shredder (the brand I had), heavy-duty, on sale for $40. It was meant to be.

While I was there, I also picked up huge multi-packs of chicken thighs and ground turkey, and a case of sugar free Red Bull and a bottle of vitamin B12 for my wife. In and out in under ten minutes. PBUC.

Like yeah I agree but unless you have a bidet I just assume most civilized people start with dry, finish with a wet toilet paper and be done.

They are flushable wet wipes but the catch is that you have to flush one at a time.

This has already happened multiple times in large cities like NY and London. Google "Fatberg". 'Flushable' wipes are NOT flushable.

Buy a Costco carrot cake for the wedding cake. If a Catholic wedding, then dog and refill for the sacrament. If not a catholic wedding, see how she feels about the sacrament. If she is not willing to acknowledge Kirkland above on her wedding day, then you need to think about if you want to be with this woman for the rest of your life.

Krikland toilet paper rolls are too fat to fit on my bathroom's toilet paper holder without spinning it down a few layers. I'm halfway through gutting the bathroom to resolve the issue.
