Has anyone seen a vermouth at Costco? Google tells me that people have seen Carpano Antico there, but I have never seen it.

Was it mingled with the wine? Or near the booze/mixers? I am pretty bougie as well.

Was this the slim fit or regular fit shirts?
Haven't noticed slim fit. These were regular fit. For comparison, I am pretty fat, but wear the "slim fit" Brooks Brothers shirt (whatever it's called now). The Kirkland stuff is definitely more equivalent to the full fatness brooks brothers.

Costco is a great 2 hour activity with the kids. I have 2 kids and all 3 of us eat for $4.50, and then I strap the 3 year old into a cart and have my 8 year old grab stuff that isn't heavy off the shelves. They like eating samples, but I never let them stop and wait for one if it isn't already on the tray because I'm not an rear end in a top hat that likes to clog up the aisles for 5 minutes every 15 feet. I try to take them every Sunday since it is my church. PBUC
I take my three kids to Costco every Saturday morning. They eat like ravenous vultures, so we require three hot dogs and two slices of pizza.

They are not permitted to eat free samples because my wife is a shrink and believes that kids should basically never get instant gratification.

I feel like they would cut you a check instead of handing you cash if your cash back reward goes over a certain amount.
I got like $1700 cash back from a rewards certificate. Iím pretty baller and/or have a spending problem (and put a lot of work travel on the card).

What so do you make them wait an hour before they can ear their dog? How can you not be instantly gratified by the Costco food court?
They have to wait until we get home to eat.

I don't ask questions--I do what the phd tells me to do.

Have discovered a rare Kirkland misstep, the protein bars, which taste exactly like Amway protein shakes and leave your mouth feeling like it's coated with finely-ground nickels. Steer clear. (The only actively bad own-brand item I've bought in like a decade so I ain't mad, and hurrah for the return policy.)
That's kind of just what protein bars taste like if they are going to hit ~45% of calories from protein. They are basically Quest knockoffs.

Mind if I ask what the discount on the Subaru was? I went last night and they said $500 off manuf. price but they never actually showed me the Costco price sheet, so I emailed asking for it. Hopefully they get back to me today
Sorry, long time ago. I think a little more than that.

The grey Kirkland cougar coffee. Itís great.

From my pantry:


I've gone through most of the Costco whole bean coffees (cold brew). I am going through that one now, and I'm not a fan. The only Costco coffee I've had that I've actually liked has one from a regional (chicago) roaster, two brothers. But that was a lot more expensive than most there, like $9/lb.

I have a manual burr grinder that I save for special occasions when I want to treat myself to a cup of Aeropress coffee, but 99% of the time, I just throw it in the cheapo blade grinder and throw it in the french press. Still makes a drat good cup of coffee.

I usually splurge on local roaster stuff, but I saw this at Costco and I couldn't pass it up for the price.


I think is now my favorite ultra-cheap costco coffee.

That is what we are talking about. The link has the new recipe, so the box is slightly different with the red stripe about nutrition change down the side. There is (or at least was) also a peanutbutter / cookies and cream combo box at the stores near me.
These are good, the peanut butter/cookies and cream ones both seem worst.

And yeah, the fitcrunch almost taste too candybar-like
