Also, it'll get up and go when it has to. Nothing can really compare to the roar of eight big cylinders pumping their way towards 100, which is sadly what it as governed at.

But enough about your mom.


I lived in the motherland of Kirkland, WA for a few years. Costco is awesome. They finally opened one here in WI where I live and I signed up a week before they opened the doors. I have a Walmart/Sam's Club maybe 1/5th the distance away but gently caress them in their stupid loving asses. I'll go far out of my way to get better food/stuff and knowing that my money is going to people who can live off of their wages and not cut employee hours to 39.5 just so they don't get benefits (happened to my sister). gently caress them.

I don't like Walmart.

I was very much looking forward to getting some tri-tip steaks which were super cheap in Seattle and extremely good. Yeah, no one has even heard of tri-tip here. Butchers don't even get them. How the gently caress is that even possible? Like.... seriously.

The Kirkland Organic olive oil is real. Most olive oils sold in the US are a mix of a bunch of different olive oils from different regions and even have rapeseed oil/other crazy poo poo in them. Costo is the real deal.

Well, I need gas and I wouldn't mind a hotdog for $1.58. Hmmm.... maybe I should come up with a grocery list that I don't need just to go there.

Just went to Costco. Got cheaper gas and a hotdog and 20oz soda. Ended up spending $100 though. Walked by some 12 year Glenlivet and had to throw it in the cart.

No cart crashing issues. Old people are too slow. They can't drift their carts.

If you just go for just staples then it's already amazing.

I go there for other things of course but I go maybe every few months for toilet paper/paper towels/kleenex, etc.

I still have some of my toilet paper left (Kirkland, 2-ply, good stuff) that I bought a couple months ago. 30 rolls for maybe $15.

For a second I thought you were referring to actual staples and thought, "yeah, their office supplies are pretty cheap." A good place to buy markers or canned air if that's your thing.

I bet they have a pack of 100,000 staples for like $5.

I was looking for the word essentials, but staples came out first.

People ITT desperately attempt to justify shopping at an exclusive club, because they are better then everyone else.

Exclusive club lol. This isn't a loving super expensive country club where you have to get sponsored or something.

Pay $50, make up that $50 after going there a couple of times.

Sorry dude. This isn't an elite club. Sam's club exists (which you have to pay for) and it's still filled with Walmart degenerates.

Yes, yes, people with money make more of it, we all know that. How do you make your first million and make the other boys accept you?

Well, when you inherit your first 10lb bag of frozen chicken, you divide it into securities which are then sold by the executive card members. They then split those securities among the 30 packs of paper towels or tissues depending on the market. Then your frozen chicken equity builds and you can use that equity to buy 5lb frozen California Blend vegetables. After those mature, you can sell all dividends, buy even more 10 packs of Clorox Bleach, divide into securities, and finally enter the wide open GOLD member market.

Bam, you just saved your first million by shopping at your local Costco.

It's a toilet paper market right now though, so things are slow but very stable.


I have no idea what any of these financial words mean or how to use them.

^^^^ Yeah, you have to be more careful with septic systems. I moved into my house a year ago (city) and started using wet wipes and never had a problem. I just use 1 max though just because that's what it says on the box. Actually, I have completely filled that toilet with poo poo to an astonishing amount and that thing still wouldn't clog. Crazy.

What are some good frozen Costco things that make for a quick work lunch besides the yakisoba and chicken bakes?

They have tons of poo poo in the realm of good frozen stuff. I just picked up these spinach and mozzarella stuffed raviolis. I boiled half of the bag and added alfredo and some other spices and it took about 20 minutes. Just that gave me 3 dinners. With the other half I'm going to use what the directions say which is to just toss them with olive oil and a spice pack that comes with it (not a ramen type spice pack).

That ravioli was probably $12.

I was flipping through the guide on my TV and saw the word Costco so I turned it on. It was Dr. Oz. They did a walkthrough of the food that they prepare in-house (like bakes and poo poo). They couldn't find anything wrong with them so he apparently likes Costco which immediately made me second guess all of the decisions I've made in my life.

But no! No one will take me from my Costco. Looking at it in a different light, if a charlatan hack even likes Costco, then it must be magical.
