It's from the same blender (Warren Distributors) as Amazon's and Walmart's SuperTech, so it's probably pretty darn good.

It's pretty good, more like a soft doughy style then the old take and bake crust which was... weird

Indian Wells (saint michelle is the main vineyard ) cab is $9.90 at the local Costco. It tastes like a $40 dollar bottle and the local wine guy I know buys it by the case for dinner parties and to just sip

In Costco news, I'm gonna pick up a tub of BITCHIN' sauce for a small school potluck. Hopefully it goes over well. Maybe I'll try a NEW CRUST pizza if they have 'em

The more this gets quoted the less it means to me.

Today I'm thankful that they started carrying nitrile gloves in the automotive section. I didn't like the medical ones for car work. And a little cheaper than at the autoparts store.

Do the Costco tree guys tie the trees on to my car? Or is it all self serve/tie?

It's a single layer of pepperoni that completely covers the pie. I liked it but my wife took off about half to make it more like a normal level of pepperoni.

They won't do it because they don't want to be liable if something happens while you're on the road with it. But they will give you all the twine you need to tie it down yourself.

It's not that tough, just make sure it's pointing trunk forward so it doesn't open up like an umbrella on the road.

Have you considered using the Costco auto purchase program to buy a larger vehicle that can fit trees inside of it, as well as a large assortment of bulk goods purchased at your local Costco?

Put and blanket and/or tarp on the roof of your vehicle and then you can further wrap this around the tree after you place it on top and then tie it down this will protect your car's paint and also make it easier to tie the tree on such that the branches and needles aren't making GBS threads all over the road.

I should have done this before making a large item purchase from the website. The headache isn't worth the $30 I saved by not renting a truck from Home Depot for an hour.

If it isn't broken, fix it till it is.

Home depot near Costco? Rent a home depot truck, get as big as a tree you want, and don't worry about scratching up your car for $20.

EDIT: Ugh, didn't even notice Cyks's comment about the truck. But seriously, I've used home depot's truck more for other purchases than for home depot purchases. I enjoy their rental program.

I haven't had any issues with trees falling off of my car because I have an artificial tree that hasn't left its box in five years because the spots we used to put it are occupied by furniture. Much less hassle every year.

Same, but this year I have guests coming so I had to put it up.

My shed is full of black widows but the tree is white so I feel confident any inhabitants will be visible enough for people to panic scream lunge away from if they get too close.
