My trip today included a lady who apparently was waiting for the parking spot (I took) but she was pulled ahead three stalls. I think she wanted to back in, at least that's what it seemed like she yelled at me. Whatever, I told her it doesn't work like that.

Also, pita chips are loving amazing.

I'm going tomorrow to get glasses. I've never gotten glasses at Costco. Is it rad? I bet it's rad. I'm also gonna get a dog and drink combo.

As nice as Costco is, why wouldn't you use something like Zenni?

I'll get my eye exams there (independent contractor) and get contacts. No glasses though.

I'd rather buy 10 frames/lenses for $300 than one frame/lenses for $300. Different styles, don't care if they break, leave them in different places, etc. But whatever. Like I said, I do pick up my contacts there.

I've tried to buy tires at Costco for years, they just can't compete with Discount with selection, price, or service. They are thoroughly beat on this arena. In fact, I wonder what idiots are always buying overpriced tires at the Co.

I really think Costco's off-brand allergy meds are the best deal in the whole store. Aller-tec/Zyrtec does wonders for me, it's a crazy steal at $13 for a year's supply. Meanwhile branded Zyrtec at walgreens is $40 for 70 tablets.

This is symbolic of America's healthcare system.

Costco tires have never seemed to be a good deal to me. Discount is way better (ignore the owners lovely politics I guess). Even Big O has decent service.

Diaper chat...

The Co is, unfortunately, not good for diapers. Target brand diapers are solid and can be had much cheaper than Costco offerings, particularly when you stock up when they are on sale (and use the Target CC for another 5% savings).

This CNBC list is seriously flawed. Contains diapers, glasses, and tires.

Zenni is solid. If you end up not liking the glasses as much, you're out $30 and now have a backup pair. Plus the knowledge of how to order a better pair next time.

If you have vision insurance, unless your employer gives it to you for "free", you're throwing money at a copay that very likely doesn't balance out in your favor.

I went to the grocery store this afternoon and got a rotisserie chicken. It was $2 more and half the size of Co chickens. Plus it was extremely cursed.

Anyone who doesn't get a chicken when at church is a heathen.

Have you considered the fuel savings from fewer Costco runs to stock up if you have a side freezer, rather than more frequent trips to restock your overly small current freezer?

Did a big haul on Friday. Was about out of protein powder so grabbed the cookies n cream stuff on sale for $40 for 6 lb. Has 35 g protein and 2 g sugar per serving and blends alright. Wife got some big rear end pillows she seems pleased with. Grabbed some tri tip I'm gonna try cooking in the instapot today.

Sadly learned the Co has dropped the PB powder.

Ok but like what though? Like how did you make it? I just can’t wrap my head around it.

I rubbed it down with a rub, put it in on high pressure for 32 mins. Came out just a bit pink in the middle (next time I would do bit less time, keep more pink in there). Take out, let it sit 5-10 minutes, then cut. I also ate it.

That explains a lot if there's regional differences.

I used to buy Charmin when I was a lone bachelor, but the rolls are just not that big so once I moved in with my now wife we burnt through them way too fast. The Kirkland are a nice middle ground.

There is no way Charmin is the same price. You need to price it out at $/sqft.

Also, whoever recommended this poo poo was spot on. My local church stocked the chipotle flavor. Fantastic cause for my curry chicken wraps. PBUC
