Costco has some good microwavable "veggie bowls" which contain 400 calories of solidly healthly vegetables like black beans and quinoa. USDA organic of course!

These are awesome. I get a couple boxes of these and the chicken teriyaki bowls every time I go to Costco and that's pretty much all I ever eat at work for lunch.

I just moved to Lincoln, NE and I was miserable because there wasn't a Costco. But now they just opened a Costco and it owns.

That's my Costco story, now I'm gonna go eat burrito bowl that I got from Costco.

May I post this deal for newcomers to the faith:
https://costcomembershipoffer.com/purchase/open/visasocial

Costco membership, $20 Costco card, 12 pack of Kirkland towels, some Kirkland vitamin water and a goddamn food court pizza for $60

Has anyone tried this? I wanna give this link to my friends but "costcomembershipoffer.com" sets off some bells and whistles for me.

Got one of those $15 ultimate sherpa blankets last time I was in. It's so much better than the lovely fleece blanket I've been using for years and probably cost a lot less.

I really gotta get in on this roasted chicken deal. I see it all every grocery store but it makes perfect sense for a single guy living alone. Buy the chicken, eat it as a chicken with some sides (Normandy Blend of course being one) and then make a soup/stew of it the next day.

'tis the season of soups and stews and crippling loneliness.

I just eat the full chicken and don't have to worry about leftovers.

PBUC, although I must say I prefer to have my dog BEFORE I shop. Unfortunately, with the food court separated by the check out area at my location, this is not encouraged and I must sneak through check out area, often blocked with carts, to get there. Kind of odd.

Just walk in the exit side and tell them you're hitting the food court. They'll be cool with it.

The only problem with Glorious Costco is the lines are sometimes too long.

The Costco here in Lincoln just opened like a month ago so I feel like people don't know about it yet, there are no lines anywhere and it's not crowded at all.

It's truly a Costco miracle.

Costco sells these amazing frozen pucks of French Onion soup that melt in your microwave and have cheese and croutons and are just about as good as you could hope for FO to be outside of a fancy restaurant. Add a touch of salt and pepper, Combine with a bit of bread from a BAGUETTE TWO PACK, and PBUC.

Ahh I saw these today and almost got them, but I had too much frozen junk in my cart already. I remember the Trader Joe's version being pretty damned good.

Remember that you can now make appointments for your free tire rotations. It sucked that you used to have to just wait for first come first serve.

I didn't even know this was a thing until I got in and actually started reading about it. I just knew that I was getting four tires installed for $70 off the price of the tires and no labor. Costco is the best.

how often are you getting your tires rotated that you ever need to explicitly do just that? It just comes for free with most oil change places and they sink up in timing anyways.

The contigo insulated water bottles that Costco has are pretty decent too. They are $12 for 2 which is nice because it seems like I lose at least one a month. They're handwash only too but I don't think I've ever washed a water bottle in the
dishwasher anyway.

The sample stands are my least favorite thing about Costco. Every now and then they have something good that's on sale that I'll try but mostly it's just normal stuff. Fuckin old people leaving their carts all over the place so they can get a piece of Annie's pop tarts or a few almonds. Seriously guys, you've never tasted pop tarts before?

NOT THAT I'M COMPLAINING ABOUT COSTCO....

But I've been waiting for my Costco Visa Rewards with great anticipation, because I need a set of tires. I knew I should be getting it any day, so I've been watching my email. Last week I saw a "free installation sale" come and go, which would have saved me $60. But anyway...


I'd go and try to talk to the people at Costco and see if they can do anything for you if you explain the situation. Worst thing they can do is say no.

Is Costco worth it for me, the typical pathetic single male goon? Most of the food stuff is too much for one person, except stuff that lasts a long time I guess.

I don't really drive much, so the cheaper gas isn't a big thing for me.

Itís been worth it for me. I buy pretty much everything Costco though. Clothes, household goods, etc. As far as food goes they have good stuff for one person but itís mostly frozen. Stuff like the frozen bags of chicken breasts and 5lb bags of frozen mixed vegetables are a staple in my diet.

And 1.50 hot dogs with free drink refills

Scofflaws who think they are cool dudes like to ignore the Hot Dog Council.

They are not Good People.

Ketchup has a strong flavor, like ranch, and is used, especially by children, to disguise the flavor of food their parents want them to eat.

Ketchup can disguise the taste of Bad Meat, and Using Bad Meat is not a reputation quality hot dog sellers, such as Costco (pbuc) want. It dates back to Chicago's meatpacking days.

I mean, put it on your hotdog if you want, ya big baby. If it's, like, a comfort food thing, go for it.

I want to punch everything about that webpage.
