Feeding little kids 'dogs is actually a choking hazard. Feeding it to them while they're in a carseat, in a moving vehicle that's stopping and starting, while the kid is falling asleep is probably a bad idea. PBUC but please be careful.

This is why I can only take sacrmwmt about once a quarter. I always have a 3 year old and an 8 year old with me and there are no high chairs so unless my wife comes to Costco with us it is kind of tough to manage both kids and eat my polish did with krual at the table and I can't go e.tje dog to the 3 year old in the car. Even though I go to church every week I don't feel connected to the 'tsco.

Eggs last basically forever.

They are allowed to be up to 60 days old when they hit the store, and then if refrigerated should last at least 60 days at home. And that is minimum. Realistically they are probably not 60 days old yet when you get them. Even if they are 60 days old you still have 60 days which is 5 dozen at an egg a day, which means a single person could reasonably eat the large 5 dozen packages they sell before they expire.

That said, I keep hens and get about a dozen and a half per week from them so if I am buying eggs I usually wait until the grocery store has them on sale for $1/doz and buy 2 doz at that price. Between those and my hens it keeps my family of 4 in eggs for a month.

You raise hens but still buy factory farmed eggs?:(

I live in a residential neighborhood and have a coop that can only hold about 4 birds. I mean the manufacturer days 6 but after 3 it starts to get a little cramped. So I only have 3 hens right now.

I have kids and can't afford 4 bucks a dozen for cage free organic eggs. So we mostly eat the ones our girls produce but if we need to supplement it is what goes on sale at the grocery store.

So after buying a sherpa throw and a king sized sherpa blanket, my wife laid out 3 year old on the king sized blanket on our bed to change a pull up. The babe did remark upon the softness and texture of the cloth and now insists he too must have one. PBUC.

i must get revenge on this wench who obviously doesn't follow jim sinegal's good example, maybe she was some wench who doesn't even work there??

That is some horseshit brother. I used my American Costco card at the one in Chiba at least twice when I lived in Akita with no problems. It did take them longer to figure out how to process three transaction IIRC, but I was able to get several items I had been missing as well as a thanksgiving turkey that I had to take to a restaurant to cook.

Wait you just took a turkey to a restaurant and they cooked it? Is Japan what Ive been missing my whole life?

I knew the (Japanese) owners of an Italian restaurant there. I brined the bird and put it in an oven bag and stuck it in their gas oven. I came back 3 hours later to pull it out.

Otherwise having a thanksgiving turkey would have involved finding the smallest size bird I could and then using the convection setting on a microwave oven. I had tried that the year before and it had not worked out so well. Also turkey in Japan is expensive and hard to find.

Picked up my party invites. 50 for $16 and they look fantastic. Maybe if I'm lucky I can convince my fiance to do the wedding invites through Costco too.

Then I bought a hot dog.

Buy a Costco carrot cake for the wedding cake. If a Catholic wedding, then dog and refill for the sacrament. If not a catholic wedding, see how she feels about the sacrament. If she is not willing to acknowledge Kirkland above on her wedding day, then you need to think about if you want to be with this woman for the rest of your life.

At 35 I am not sure if I'm considered a millennial or not but I am pretty sure my younger brother (30) is one. I stayed on my dad's membership through college while my girlfriend (now wife) had a membership with her brother. Up until we had kids costco was a maybe once a month affair to stock up on bulk items like TP and frozen chicken breasts. Now after the second kid I am there every week and have to buy bread, daipers, soap, lunchmeat, etc.

My brother graduated from college just a2d the economy was collapsing and has taken years to recover and find a steady job he doesn't hate. His GF is younger than him and graduated later and fared better. Since he is stable now I think they will probably get married and have kids, but he will be getting married in his early 30s and having kids in his mid 30s whereas I got married at 23 and had a kid at 27. Economic circumstances have caused a lot of millennials to delay marriage and children but they will have kids and move to the burbs and shop at costco once they get there.

But here's the question. You put that poo poo in your cart, and then in your car for a 10 minute drive back to your house. Then, into you fridge. Where are you putting your milk in such jeopardy that it leaks so much? I'm not a packaging engineer but it surprises me that goons are putting their milk through a gauntlet of danger to get it home.

No, it's the flat top jug that leaks whenever you pour. It is because of the design on the jug, not its physical strength.

If your Costco carries the 2-packs of Contigo autoseal travel cups on sale for $13, you should buy like four of them. They keep your drink hot or cold for ages and do not leak, and retail each cup would be about $20.

I live in Oregon but if I want Costco liquor I just drive across the river and buy as much as I want

Are the prices on name brand liquor lower up there? I have heard at regular liquor stores the taxes eat up any savings, but I have been curious about Costco. It's over half an hour drive for me to go up there so I haven't bothered yet. I have mostly been wondering about the big bottle of Tito's vodka which is $44.95 in Oregon, but if the prices were good I would probably just load up on whisky and rum too. My friend who moved down to California always talks about how much more expensive booze is here in Oregon than it is in his new home.

My wife and I had separate accounts for years and never had trouble, but I didn't have a grainy, lovely photo on the back of my card footer a long time and the cashiers at the church closest to me would always make a big deal out of it. The same location also had cashiers that act like it is an imposition if you answer that yes you would like a box.

so dude positions himself to my right while i have a shopping cart in front of me. when it's my turn to order he tries to loving charge ahead of me so i just pretended i was pushing my cart off to the side so i could speak to the cashier.

my girlfriend told me he gave me the dirtiest look and was pacing behind me as he waited and then his wife came up to yell at him that she was ready to leave

I’ve timed them at ours. First they have to pay a compliment and half the time literally pinch the cheeks or pat the shoulder of the little one. Then they ask some question. Maybe about a favorite thing they bought at Costco or how school was. Then they wait for a response and maybe follow up. I poo poo you not. Then they inspect the receipt and mark off the items. Then, and only then is it doodle time. I’ve never seen a happy face take so long but oh the artistry some think they have. I can’t believe it’s not Salvador Dali’s best rendition of Mickey Mouse. Maybe an elephant or god knows what. But it’s not four lines. It’s forty strokes to draw these, like they are masters at Japanese calligraphy.
God forbid you start to walk out the door while they are drawing. Then they just take longer.

They do this for every single goddamned child.

I was fine when it was just a three second smiley face.

Holy poo poo that sounds awful. At my church the do all the chitchat while counting the cart and then hurriedly scrawl the smiley face on there and pat the kid on the head and you are off to the races.
