Costco is classy. You should always wear a bra and dress up to go commune.

Is there a schedule to when Costco will promote/discount memberships? A family member will be signing up for a new exec membership and I want to advise them when the best time to do it in the next 2 months is. Like the bag giveaways, or discounts or whatever. Thx!

And I already know that a Costco membership is itís own reward ;)

I think I could dig up the coupon I got through my previous employer's generic benefits email(hell yeah they never took me off the mailing list :getin:) if you'd like. It's nothing huge, I think you just get a $30 Costco gift card, but happy to share the generic code if anybody wants it!

That is insanely thoughtful... how about giving it to someone new or on the fence about going to the church? This family is already on board :) I just want them to get a cool bag or something ;)

Again, thx so much for the offer

No prob! It'll require a little digging through my emails cause I don't remember wtf I labeled it as, or if I did so at all, but I'll set a reminder to check it out tonight :toot:

Found it! So it's not a coupon, but it's essentially the same thing. Buy a Costco Membership Activation Certificate, present it at an actual Costco, and you'll get :10bux::10bux::10bux: on a Costco gift card! It gets mailed to the address you provide, which meh, but money is money.

Anybody can use it as far as I can tell, so if anyone is going to sign up for a new membership hit this uuuuuuuuuuppppppppp: https://costcomembershipoffer.com/purchase/purchase/Perkspot

I always wonder - is parchment paper ok for the green bin or nah? Probably varies by location somewhat.

I bought some knockoff silpats from amazon and realized parchment paper is better in almost every possible way. So the faux silpats just sit in a cupboard.

Is it just the knockoff brand? My partner has a silpat and it loving rocks, I'm probably gonna get her another one

I snoozed my email for getting a gift card when I sign up for a church membership until the day after I'm set to close on my house :pray:

If you mean it you want that one. For normal use literally any FoodSaver you see on the shelf is a good buy.

But no seriously that Weston Pro whips rear end.

:hmmyes:

I'll probably start with the FoodSaver, but maybe once I get my chest freezer and really figure out my food situation I'll upgrade to the Weston Pro :getin: Thanks!

A quick, easy, healthy, and delicious meal is doing a sweet potato bar by chopping up a cooked sweet potato and topping it with cotija/queso fresco, sliced green onions, cilantro, sour cream, and a bunch of the 505 green chiles. I also like to cook some chicken sausages from Aldi and throw those in there to make it extra satisfying...one of the best applications I've found for the 505 stuff yet.

:yum: that sounds delicious, def gonna pick up some of these mythical 505s on my next trip

Cilantro is easy to grow, isn't it? :getin:

I initially signed up for just the $60 plan but when I got my card the rally nice lady at the counter was like "honestly I recommend upgrading, if you don't hit $120 to break even we just kinda bump it up to that so there's really nothing to lose" and I was like daaaaamn this place really is a house of god

Gonna get the CC after we close on our house, cause I'll fuckin easily get my money's worth for that sucker

Apparently my grandfather used to just eat raw onions like apples

I love onions but maybe not that much

Anyway tip of the day: rub your fingers on a penny after you're done cutting and they won't smell like onions or make you cry anymore
