Since moving from NJ to SC I purchase a lot more at Costco. I only buy my meat from Costco.

$50 for a stainless steel trash can that used regular kitchen trash bags and came with a mini one
I had a stainless steel trash can that broke, got it at Costco about 5 years ago. They didn't have anymore but I kept waiting to see if they would get them in. Everywhere else wanted about $70 or more.

This past Thursday they had a bunch of them $47 with the small can.

I have purchased a living room run, sheets, and I love the bath towels, they are $6.99 and are big & fluffy. They just had a coupon for $2 off and I purchased a bunch of them.

I don't think I have ever purchased food that I didn't like.

I have seen that bear at there! I thought to myself "Who their right minds would ever want a stuffed animal that size?"

My mom and I bought 2 of those for my niece and nephew! My sister was mad at us because they were so huge and she didn't have anywhere to put two of them!!! We still get a laugh out of that.

In addition to all the normal deals at Costco, they also give gift cards for DCL cruises.

This coming June, 2013 we will have close to 2K Costco gift cards from a family cruise!!

I just became a Costco member this year . I now buy Kirkland paper towels, TP, shampoo & marinara spaghetti sauce. I occasionally buy berries and vegetables depending on the price and I found those prices to be better (compared to other stores) in the winter/spring than now. I buy olive oil and coffee there whenever mine runs out. I buy Fage Greek Yogurt each and every trip. I buy shrimp on the weekends when they unbundle specific seafood items and sell them by the pound. I buy organic chicken breasts and freeze the ones I don't use right away in the little individual packages they are already packed in. I buy steaks, but not often. There are only 2 meat eaters in our house and I would rather pay more for fresh steaks than to freeze and thaw half of the steaks at a later time.

Back in May they had a Heys 3 piece luggage set (Crown V) on line for $159 that I purchased.

It was a spinner and included the 30" 26" and 21."

It was an amazing price for the set.

One thing that drives me nuts about Costco is they can sell a certain product for years and then discontinue it without notice.

I love their Kirkland brand French milled soaps and I just bought their Kirkland Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil which I like because sometimes EVOO can be too strong for my taste.

Not all Costcos carry the same products.

You will find on Black Friday they have excellent deals on TVs. I could kick myself for not buying the Samsung 55" when I could have. They had it for $1,000 cheaper than any other store but I didn't have my SUV and had to go home to change cars. They were all gone by the time I went back.

About the biggest piece of advice I can give--if you see something you want there--buy it. You can always return it and chances are it will not be there when you return.

The chocolate dipped almond covered ice cream bar for $1.50 is delicious.

I love Costco.

Outstanding value and service for your money.

I also love the Organic olive oil!

Yes on the red above! Often I will buy something and want another for myself or a gift and go back within a week and it's still gone. This happened when I bought new silverware and I wanted a second set and then just last week when I bought some dessert bowls. I went back to get another set a few days later and they were gone

EXACTLY! There is more than one way to skin a cat or a child who was torturous as a teenager! It is well worth 29.99 and the laugh will be priceless!

Forgot we actually bought our laminate flooring from there. A month later there was a coupon for $8 off per box - I went back and they refunded me the difference.

I forgot to add one perk that I loved. We bought a new car using their car buying program. We looked at a few dealerships to find the car and features we wanted. We negotiated the best price that we could get. We then contacted Costco and they sent us to a local dealer's fleet manager. We told him what we wanted and he called us back and said he could get that for us. The price we were quoted was thousands less than our best deal! The next day we went and picked the car up. It took about a half an hour. It was the most pleasant car buying experience that we have ever had.

For us it is becoming much more what do i NOT get at Costco.

I think the only thing we go to the grocery store for is Reynolds foil - non-stick
Saran Wrap (brand specific)
odds and ends - fillers basically btw Costco visits

My Costco is about 25 minutes away. If it were closer....oh my

Our last air conditioners, phone/answering machine, TVs, mouse, clothes for hubby, batteries - the list just goes on and on

The Kirkland brand is fantastic. All out ove the counter drugs comes from Costco and usually Kirkland brand

We always start our visit at the food court. Have my 1.50 hot dog and drink (with refill on hte way out the door). Saves me tons of money on impulse buys when not hungry

So worth the membership fee

Their croisant sandwhich tray for parties. OMG they are FANTASTIC!!!! It's now my go-to meal when we host casual parties! I just have them cut them in half rather than thirds (my crowd are big eaters and like larger portions). They are great for all kinds of party foods and drinks since it's all bulk. Good prices on beer, wine, and liquor too!
