I Don’t Have A Costco Card

Shocker, right? Sometimes I think I’m the only one of my friends who doesn’t have one. 

I don’t know how many times I get told, “You can get that at Costco.”

I mean, yeah I could get that at Costco, but I have to go across town. I have to make a special trip. I have to pay the yearly fee. I have to fight traffic and most of all I have to find time. Honestly that’s just more work than I want to even think about.

I am a creature of habit. I like to stay in a 3 mile radius of my house and do all of my shopping right there. Small, local stores with the occasional large grocery store run once a week or two are my jam. I don’t really like to venture out very far if I don’t have too and I as note above ~ I REALLY do not like traffic.

I also don’t shop in bulk. When my older four kids lived at home, I would be all over that, but now it’s just the three of us. Truthfully, we don’t eat nearly enough to shop in bulk. Not only that but I downsized my home and I don’t have as much storage space as I used to. So just another reason why I don’t shop in bulk.

But every once in a while someone shares an amazing Costco deal and I think to myself … am I missing out? So tell me what’s your favorite Costco finds.

Am I really missing out? Would my life be complete if I added a Costco membership to it?
