How To Have Fun at Costco

  • Run by the membership card checker before he can catch you.

  • Laugh at everyone in line for gas with their huge SUVs.

  • Watch someone push a huge ass shopping cart that weighs more than they do.

  • Go on the search for the two things you were looking for.

  • Realize there are more than two things in your cart.

  • Bask in your brilliance that Costco should have a map.

  • Pass through the cheese aisle.....twice!!

  • Imagine what you could do with huge gallon tubs of butter.

  • Feel anything that looks like it would be soft to the touch.

  • Curse as you see everyone push their carts full of paper products as you have been in the building for an hour and still can't find the paper products!

  • Buy stuff because you will be able to share it with others.

  • "Oh, those look good. Let's try them" is great because you can never use too many of something that you are not sure you will like.

  • Plan the letter to the Costco CEO that the aisles should have traffic lights...

  • ...and carts should have horns and blinkers.

  • Don't go when you are hungry unless you really wanted 20 lbs of chicken and a case of turkey burgers!

  • Do go when you are hungry if you are cheap and want samples for lunch.

  • Laugh at others filling their carts with crap that will take them decades to use.

  • Blush when you realize others are laughing at you.

  • Buy more then what was intended and try to fit it in a small convertible.

  • Carry 40 lbs of Kitty Litter up the stairs while the cat sleeps in the corner.

  • Start divvying up your purchases.

  • Dream up future menus that consist of chicken tenderloin, turkey burgers or cheese.

  • Realize the only thing that is really worth buying in bulk is toilet paper and alcohol!

    LMAO! I go for the TP and Kleenex first, for it fills up the cart. The bag of chicken I can eat in a month. The salmon fillets are good too.
    I also love their canadian bacon.

    I agree about the lights and horns though. It's such a zoo on weekends! I find that if I go after work during the week, it is MUCH less crowded.

    Oddly, half these suggestions would work well for my "How to liven up a wedding" post :-)

    LOL! Add to it, stay away from the chocolate muffins. ;-)

    "Imagine what you could do with huge gallon tubs of butter."

    (closing eyes and smiling)

    Oh yeah... that's it baby... just like that...

    (opens eyes)

    Sorry, you told me to. :)

    You went shopping with my sister to Costco, didn't you?

    Ah, good fun had by all!

    So far I am enjoying my 24 packs of gum, the 150 clorex and the chicken quesadillas are pretty good. The TP should last me a while and Mom and TGOO get to use the 500 thread count sheets when they visit on Thurs. The cheese and 20 lbs of chicken will be eaten at some point- hopefully before frost bite.

    Thanks for going with me! Good times.

    No way Napster can get me in the Costco. It just will not happen...
