Last evening I thought about some of the items that I had purchased from Costco and my mind took me back to elementary school in the 60’s when we had “air raid” drills and had to hid under the desks. I also thought of the Twilight Zone episode about the family who built a bomb shelter in their basement. They had just enough supplies for themselves and not enough for their neighbors. I wondered which items that I had purchased from Costco would be good in a bomb shelter.
Detergent for 120 loads of laundry…or more because it would have to be washed by hand!
Chobani Greek Yogurt
Snacks for the men
Snack for me!
Last Saturday, #1 son and I made the trip to Costco at the insistence of hubby who had bought a membership the week before. I needed to get my membership card so he said, “why don’t you go and just look around to see what they have. “Just look around”, this from the man I married almost 22 years ago – I have never gone to a store to “just look around”. Unfortunately, this is just the type of place you go to just look around and…..eat the samples. I personally don’t like warehouse clubs like BJ’s and Sams because I spend way too much time and money and I really don’t find a lot of bargains.
I did however, notice that the bulk meats and fresh veggies were a good price but you have to buy so much of it that it’s more of a savings for large families or parties. Anywho, here’s a picture of #1 son and I at the register with our cart and I didn’t realize you could only pay with debit card or American Express so that money flew out of my account before I hit the parking lot.
