Any other major items worth stocking up on?

Dry pasta
Canned veggies (I get mushrooms and tomatoes)
Seasonings (Salt, pepper, taco mix)

I keep adding stuff to my Costco list based on this thread and my next visit is going to be painfully awesome.

A miracle this night....

(From Facebook friend of a friend)

Was just at Costco, I miscalculated how much money I had on me so I was putting back two outfits I had for Clara, the lady in line behind me bought them for her & told me to give her a hug from her ❤❤

I'm having the party tomorrow and did my shopping today. I'm bummed they had a seven layer dip a few weeks ago when I was scouting but there wasn't any today. I did get the Greek pasta salad though.

I spent tithed $468 so that should get me into Costco have for sure.

They got rid of the self checkouts at mine. I used them a lot but there were always problems (stuff not scanning, coupons not ringing up correctly when they did coupons) so I think it's for the better. The checkout people are true professionals who know how to get poo poo done quickly.

What are the pro-tier hors d’oeuvres to get at costco for my new years eve party. I got the huge pastry pack last year but they were just okay. I saw they have better selection this year

I'm passing on the blessings from like a page ago where someone recommended the garlic lime shrimp and they are truly a gift. Since they are already cooked and the tail removed, just put them in a fancy bowl or make little cracker/shrimp/avocado bites.

Finally had one of those Tasty Bite Tikka Masala pouches. Had it over white rice. The rice took a while but 1 minute in the microwave for the tikka masala.

Pro Tip : Buy the Uncle Ben's rice in the 90 seconds bags in your flavor of choice like jasmine/brown/basmati for a super quick, super filling meal.

I don't get produce often but my kids eat fruit by the ton and I feel like it stays fresh forever. The last boatload of grapes we got lasted two weeks and the precut broccoli longer. I joke with my husband that I don't know what they irradiated it with but it lasts a long time. Long enough that we actually eat all of it without throwing any away.

I’m in South Lyon, so my home Costco is the Green Oak / Brighton one. I will hit the Livonia or Haggerty one on the way home from work (Detroit) from time to time. The Haggerty one is bonkers and hate stepping foot in there.

Bought a beef tenderloin today for $123 (the smallest Prime one they had). I don’t think I’ve ever bought one before so hopefully I won’t screw it up.

This is what we had for Christmas dinner and it was excellent and cooked quickly. I even over cooked it a bit (for my liking anyway) and it was still good. I'm very excited for beef tenderloin nachos with the leftovers this weekend!

Just got back from a snowy trip to Costco here in Michigan. We had to line up outside which was pretty miserable, but the line moved fast. They had everything I needed (including TP!) except for chicken of any kind or hand soap. I've been striking out on hand soap everywhere but the lack of chicken was odd.

Oh my. Wish I’d discovered this a lot sooner. Holy yum. Gonna try this on my omelette for breakfast.

This is a local Metro-Detroit brand salsa that was a mom and pop place. They were bought by Campbell's a few years ago and their distribution grew nationwide. It's the only salsa I've bought for years and they have lots of other good flavors like garlic artichoke.

These are very good, although the BBQ flavor is the best and not sold at my Costco.

I usually have to go to my local health food store for them and that same store also carries several flavors of Bitchin' Sauce.

Bought these this week and had them for dinner tonight. They were a bit dry (easily fixable) but they were tasty and smoky. They're expensive too but I think there's enough for two meals for my small family of four, which makes it not so bad.

Frankly, it's better than most brisket I can get at BBQ joints in Michigan. We are not a good BBQ state.

Only eat Prime, nothing else is worth it.
Meat is a loving awful scourge for everyone and everything involved, BUT it tastes wicked good. Only eat the best stuff, and as a treat.
We eat Prime New York strip about once a month and it's fantastic every time.

I do the same thing, I bought two packs of three Prime steaks this week, split into two each and freeze them. We have them for Sunday dinner about once a month and it's spoiled me for any other store bought steak.

Hit or miss. It's definitely not the worst, but it's extremely busy and full of people who are in their own world. I strongly prefer Bougie Costco (Bloomfield Hills) but it's a little bit of a hike

Livonia Costco is awful and backwards and I hate it. No hard liquor either!!! I go to the Commerce location and it is a nice mix of West Bloomfield douches and Walled Lake rednecks.

My Costco carries Mcclure's garlic spears which are ok but if you can find the sweet and spicy or bread and butter varieties, you'll never need another brand in your life. I used to hate hate HATE pickles and the sweet and spicy converted me.
