<--- has never been inside a Costco. The nearest one is Vegas, and I just didn't want to. We have closer places for buying in bulk but it doesn't make sense for me to do that. Practically everything I buy is fresh.

Sadly for me, Costco is halfway between my house and my office. You go in for batteries and come out with a generator, steaks and a kayak. I do buy gas there regularly, and a host of things I don't need.

The best Christmas present Coscto delivers to me is cheap gas w/4% cash back using my costco card.  It's the gift that keeps on giving!

We started shopping there because we buy large amounts of sugar to feed our bees...and gradually got hooked on a number of things.  They have amazing prices on a lot of things.

I do not have a Costco membership. I like to shop at Aldi, Amazon, Whole Foods, Publix, and Trader Joe's. Those are my go to stores. I shop for gifts online and have them sent to my kids' and grandkids' homes. I buy my bulk items on line.

Richie,

We gave up our membership a few years ago.  We are not bulk buyers of anything.  If we had a big family, it would make sense.  Delighted for all who benefit from these low prices.  A
