Wholesale Madness

The Pedant and I visited our soon to be abode this weekend and then visited our soon to be neighbor, COSTCO. Now, I don't know if I have declared my love for Costco yet on this blog, but I have an enormous affection for the wholesaler. I remember the first time I went: all these huge jars of my favorite things, taste tests, clothing, electronics! It was a dream come true. TP and I expect to visit this store often, since it's closer than the supermarket. What's good about this is not only fun taste tests, but cheap wine, good produce and fun activities. And, cheap and tasty pizza. Bring on the 3 pound coffee containers, 5 gallon tubs of peanut butter and more toilet paper than TP and I could use in a year! YAY!

I <3 Costco. My parents like to call it "The $200 Club" because you can't leave without spending at least that much, even if you go in to just buy toilet paper.

I recommend the frozen individual fillets of salmon - perfect for a quick dinner. And MUCH cheaper than the grocery store!

Although... Dr. Pepper probably is cheaper at the grocery store

They actually also have flash frozen fish in single-serve portions. It is not bad at all.

And TP comes by his love for costco rightly, his father has a huge thing for it.

I love Costco, but I can't shop there anymore. With just my wife and I in the household, half the stuff we bought would go bad before we could eat it =(

Well, then Chris, you and your wife should come over for a costco party - we can all go and taste test, buy absurd amounts of food and eat it quickly so it doesn't go bad. We can have a jug-o-PB eating contest. I'm game...

Did you just offer the very peanut-allergic Mr. Smith the chance to eat a tub of peanut butter?

You're worse than Mr. Seigo in the attempts on Chris's life.

Oh right. Sorry Chris. Scratch that...let's up the wager: Mayo jars. Or cheap wine chugging contests. Or something with no peanuts.
