My Costco trip report

Since we luv trip reports..heres my latest

I went to costco
we had pizza
and a refillable drink
the car-park was half empty on a Monday morning at 11.30
we looked at everything
the trolleys are huge
I had a $40 budget I set myself
I spent $160
I got a new bag.Its bright.
we left at 2pm
We had fun.
But I like Walmart better.

Sounds like my trips to Ikea!
But now, do you feel better because you now have a lifetime supply of items you ordinarily wouldn't purchase? On a side note, a guy that went on schoolies with me decided to buy all our groceries from costco. In the 5 days between him buying the food, and us leaving, the 10KG of steak had gone off, as had the chicken he'd bought and the 'fresh fruit' What a smart boy. Not.

I tried to have a peek in the costco at Auburn last time we were in Sydney, it was busy, and they wouldn't let me in to have a look around

I really like Costco, but I can never leave the joint without parting with at least $300 of our hard earned, as a result I have not renewed our membership and we have not yet gone hungry

Another reason i've not renewed is it takes me 45 minutes to get there (at least) and I need to use the toll roads to get there which adds at least another $10 to the trip, if it was closer I would probably go again, but i'm not going to before our trip anyway LOL

I will however shop online at Endless.com LOL

Currently looking for zebra stripe Nine West ballet flats I spied at Chadstone last week...might just head back to Chadstone if I can't find them LOL

We went last weekend - living in Canberra we don't have huge time issues when (and no tolls)

I was disappointed there was nothing special in stock for 4th July.

Our Costco is only 20min away. I love the $2.50 hotdog and drink! The pizza slices are huge too!

Our last trip to Costco a week ago I went for cereal, twiggys and dishwasher tablets, came home with those, a dog bed, 750ml bourbon, chicken mince some other things we "needed".

We don't buy a lot of food from there, mostly toilet paper, tissues, washing powder, tablets and liquids, spray and wipe, toothpaste those kind of things.

Will get DH to buy a company membership next time though, he is self employed and then technically it's not coming out of our budget

Can't wait to check out Walmart when we're over there.

Mainly different candy or themed food. It makes our Disney movie nights more fun

Around Thanksgiving they had huge turkeys and pumpkin pies and for Chinese New Year they had a lot of tastings going on.
