I was going to buy liquor-only, but ended up deciding to go hog wild and get an Exec membership with my roommate on the 2nd card. He'll probably end up paying for my membership with the 2% back.

Got 4 x 1.75 bottles of liquor, a tub of mixed nuts with no peanuts, 24 Rockstars for $1.17 each, some soda (25c each, so not amazing, but not bad, but I'm having a party tomorrow) and some pharmacy stuff I needed for around $140. Thanks for the inspiration, thread.

Scarfed down a hot dog with tons of onion and then sipped on my soda while I shopped. Samples were honey, nilla wafers and a cookie, so not the best this time.

How's their marinaded tri tip? I'm going to compare prices with the Mexican market next to my house that is just okay, but if it's really good I'll pay more.

Those things are loving great. When I first starter going to Costco they were like 10 bucks . Now they're 15 dollars plus 😣

Just checked and I got them for $12 for 12--I'm sorry for your loss. Baybel cheese was also $4 off!

I had 17-or-so (not pairs) random short socks. Decided to toss them and got 60 pairs of identical socks from Costco. Now if I lose one it doesn't matter as they all match, and I don't need to think about socks for the better part of a decade. Got a 1/4 pound PLUS polish with 20 oz drink with free refill on the way out, didn't bring my cart in the food line, got sauerkraut from the lady, added poo poo loads of onion, deli mustard and relish. Also told a guy about the sauerkraut and he went back to the counter to get some to add to his dog. Am I doing this right?

There is a new Costco opening up on June 29 at 6898 Raleigh Road, San Jose CA 95119. From what I hear I should go at 6pm to meet W. Craig "Big Dog Plus" Jelinek and thank him for keeping the dogs at 1.50?

My girlfriend came clean to me. Apparently I hyped up the Costco hotdog too much. We went to Costco that day since we needed to return a kitchen storage container set, and I had her take a bite of the one I made. She now loves Costco hotdogs (polish), but I have to make them for her (relish and deli mustard first, tons of onions second, and then the kraut, parmesan and pizza peppers on top) from now on. I think I will marry her. PBUC

I have to wait 3 more weeks to get the jamůn. Besides snacking on it hourly, what goes well with it? Thinking some good olives on the side and a little strip of jamůn on top of a warm bread, of course, but what are some more advanced jamůn pairings?

Iíve been trying the jerkies and have settled on Pacific Gold as my personal preference of sweetness/chewiness...maybe a little on the sweet side.

This is an ape, specifically an orangutan. They shave those and use them for sex work. Different kind of forced labor. Well, off to go watch the Jungle Book cartoon to imagine this great ape as a king instead of...that.

Iím merely on hajj to the holy land for the holidays. I havenít seen them yet in the godless SF Bay Area, but itís a warm color (canít remember if itís red or orange-red) and says it has 5-or-so options such as mocha, black coffee, hot chocolate, etc.

Re: meat scraps. It always bothered me when people discount cheap nuggets. Sure, itís the scrap meat, but what should we do with it? Throw it away? Itís not a prime cut but itís chicken.

Any healthy late night snacks that are overlooked? I usually do a pack of edamame these days, and I donít trust myself with the mozzarella sticks Costco (PBUC) provides in such blessŤd quantity.
