Skip the frozen aisle. Plenty of dry goods, clothes, seasonal, cleaning supplies, etc as long as you have closet/garage/living room space to store it

Just one question, though. Is there a way to take off my pants?

Just moved into a new apartment, can't wait to hit up Costco to get red cups and a big ol' thing of ground beef and ground turkey so I can freeze it and have lunch for the next month.

And not to mention the 1/4 pound all beef hot dog and drink for 1.50!

E: Lol realize I already posted this but I'm always happy to affirm my love of all things Costco

All the aisles are good aisles but it's going to take you a while to see them all you might want to stop by the food court and get you a 1/4lb all beef hot dog and a 20oz drink for just $1.50 (plus tax :shh:). The best part is that you can refill the drink all you want for free!!!

Always walk all aisles. Not only do they like to move stuff around, you will probably see something new each time. Also look for starred (*) and .97 items, those are clearance.
Keep an eye out for out of the place sample ladies also, they like to hide.

Costco customers aren't the only ones guilty of living off prepackaged meals, cooking at home has been a lost skill for much of America for the last 40 or so years.

Sometimes for work after a really hard week I like to grab a few pies and just have a little impromptu pizza party for everyone, and the fact that they cost $10 instead of $25 like a lot of place is what gets me to do that

Not really cool at all because it kept prices high and made it a lot more trouble to buy. Now a lot of booze is cheaper and can be found in many more places. It's a win-win, really.

Some people hate it because the taxes are higher now too, but overall it's cheaper. The taxes do suck though.

booze got way more expensive cause the prices basically stayed the same but now there's a huge extra tax slapped on at the counter, it's admittedly a bit more convenient to not have to go to state run stores (that usually closed p early) but booze is prolly 20-30% more expensive now.

I don't get how anyone says this, maybe the state store I hit up was special or something but the sticker price of a 5th stayed about the same before/after except now you get to pay an extra huge rear end flat volume tax on top of that. Particularly for 5ths that were like 10-20 bucks before the change they got way more expensive after.

I knew that was going to happen. I liked the state run stores because everywhere you go you can expect roughly the same price. Everyone always says "well now there will be competition and everything will get cheaper!!!" That is almost never the case anymore. Taxes or not the prices may drop at first to get people in the door but they will steadily climb like literally everything. Especially when an entire industry gets together.

It was so frustrating, it's like everybody turned into a libertarian for the one stupid bill. Free market competition will drive down the price! Privatizing is always the solution! *pays 25 dollars for 5th that was 20 just a week ago*, I sure do love capitalism.

Eh, longer initial return period, and you get it in your grubby hands immediately.
Use the Costco visa and I think an extra year is tacked onto any warranties.

Not at all. If whatever's stuck to it doesn't scrub out easily, just run it with a couple cups of plain water for 5 minutes. Magic.

I got one of the 25 pound bags o pinto beans from costco and use the instant pot to cook em all the time. Protip, pressure cook up some fresh stock in the pot, then pressure cook the beans in the stock, never go back to canned.
