I've done several national accounts for many stores. I do work for display companies and graphic artists who do the trade shows.

I have to say that it sounds like a more interesting job than mine, maybe even more fulfilling.... glad your back, or so it seems!

I buy a lot of meats there. Whole sirloin strips, tenderloins and rib eyes for beef. Then I cut my own steaks and roasts.

The prices are better than the supermarket but when the market has a good sale they will sometimes beat the warehouse store.

Whole pork loins and tenderloins. I cut my own chops and roasts.

Of course, loads of paper products, laundry supplies, party goods, medications, baked goods, and electronics.

I have a set of stainless tri-ply pots and pans from Costco that are as good as my All-Clad.

Go for it.

You may want to buy a freezer for the basement or garage.
Ditto, what Andy said. I buy almost all my meats at Costco. It is a great benefit for me since I live in a small town the the meat prices are outrageous at the local grocery store. I also buy dogfood, shrimp, beverages, trash bags, reclosable storage bags (for all that meat), etc.

At Costco you can get two cards with your membership, so I split my membership with another member of my family to reduce the year cost of the membership.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
