We bought my daughter (now 2.5) one of those bears when she turned one. She crawled and crawled all over him. She loves him, his name is Costco. He is the lord protector of her stuffed animals and he gets plenty of attention. We see his brothers and sisters and cousins when we visit Costco and she excitedly shrieks "COSTCO!" whenever she sees them.

I'm raising her up in the flock, brethren.

We love Costco.

Kirkland Bourbon is fine to mix but I wouldn't drink it on the rocks.

I think it depends upon who is making it in any given year. I've had it in the past where it was perfectly palatable and went through a couple of bottles of it. It's like the French vodka, where the manufacturer changes over time. That one is always good though, and cheap as hell.

The anejo tequila was pretty good last time I had it, but I bought that bottle in the UK so I'm not sure if it's the same as what they have in the US.

The new "7-year bourbon" was pretty good, and made an appearance at several family functions and was heartily consumed. The 12 year scotch also.

If you're gonna buy bourbon to mix just get the giant bottle of Jim Beam. Its a really good deal.

Those jeans rule. I have two pairs and they make all other non-stretchy jeans feel like wearing burlap sacks on my legs, plus the stretchiness doesn't lead to them being all wrinkled from the dryer like a lot of other stretchy material clothing can get. Highly recommended, and at that price!!

Yeah not gonna lie I was kinda worried that they wouldn't be that great but I've been wearing them all day and they are comfortable as poo poo.

They feel super soft too which is nice.

What's the good Costco liquor? I remember seeing discussion about a Kirkland brand whiskey or something a while back but can't find it.

Cognac. The Kirkland XO Cognac is a steal at the price it is here in California. Best cognac ever? No. Half the price of comparable XO cognacs? Hell yeah.

Gotta give a shout out to Kirkland Vodka( American ) and the Kirkland Spiced rum. Both are great steals and great for mixers. Special shout out to the rum which was actually real smooth by itself as a shot. It is P. sweet tho. Very heavily spiced with vanilla. So you'll essentially make hard vanilla cokes when you mix it with a coke.

Giant bottle of Bulleit is $32, sometimes $30. It's smooth enough to drink on the rocks, but bland enough that you can mix it without feeling guilty.

One of my Costco tires was slowly leaking and I was stressing out because my work hours weren't lining up with any tire repair places because they closed the same time I got off work. Someone reminded me that Costco has road hazard warranty included, so I walked in on a Tuesday after work and got it fixed for free in an hour while I ate pizza and bought Christmas gifts. They even replaced my lovely valve caps. PBUC.

No, no. I live in a state with state liquor stores. I get none of the glorious booze. Just making a general statement.

Edit: we also have state prices on beer and wine, making the co kind of useless for alcohol.

No but they might not carry them online.

Also two things need more love in this thread.

First that big rear end box of Aluminum foil sheets that lasts 1000 years. Those things are loving amazing for everything and every house should have a box.

Second the Lucky Brand T-Shirts. They are soft as hell and a great deal at $9.99.

OH YEAH!

Also if you aren't buying your wrapping paper from Costco I dunno what to tell you because that poo poo lasts forever.

I have two each of the gigantic rolls of plastic wrap and aluminum foil. They weigh like 20 pounds each. It doesn't matter that scottsdale costco doesn't carry them, because I'm set for life .

The sheets are the way to go. Rolls you have to deal with that rear end garbage poo poo cutter blade made for idiots and it often just tears down the middle and other awkward poo poo. its the worst loving invention. sheets are loving godly

costco doesnt carry it, but i'd also recommend buying sheet-version of parchment/baking paper. they're just so nice and once you try em you can't go back to mangling with the dull rear end cutters on boxes.
