Remember, even if you do not have a Costco Membership, you can still use the pharmacy. Your co-pays may be cheaper at Costco, too. I used them exclusively and my co-pays were half what they were at Walgreen's.

I completely forgot about the glasses I have on order! Computer glasses with 30" focus (I have large monitors), and old-fashioned bifocals. Last time it took them three tries to get the bifocals right, no charge. I'm always stepping on the damn things, and Costco repairs them free, even if it means new frames.

But this is a cooking site...

We saw this item at Costco for the first time the other day and bought one. I sliced some off today for breakfasts for SO and me. Very tasty. I froze half and we'll have the other half for a dinner later this week.

Andy, how much per pound was it and how big?
I'm not the biggest Ham fan, but DH LOVES it.
Every holiday, when we lived in Southern Arizona, I purchased a Honey Baked Ham and THAT I love!
I've also found Boar's Head brand Sweet Ham tasty as well, how does the flavor compare do you think?

I'm glad I found this thread. I love Costco! Don't tell anyone but the cookbooks I use the most are the Costco cookbooks. They are awesome.

To answer the OP, here's some of my favorite things:
Cookies! Their cookies are huge and crammed with delicious chocolate.
Vodka! $10. Wow. (though last time I looked, it was $12)
Garofalo pasta
EVOO - honestly, I've never found better
Eggs - sometimes 18 count is $1.20
Steaks, chicken, pork
Cheese! Their Irish cheddar is exceptionally lovely.
Huge bag of spinach.
Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap. Love, love, love this stuff.
Black pepper (best I've tasted anywhere)

List goes on and on...

Edit: How could I forget? Their dishwashing soap is the best.

Picked this up on our last visit to Costco. It's markedly better than the usual shredded parmesan products.

I love this thread!

Some things I saw on my last trip to Costco:
Deglet Noor dates
Organic Roasted Chestnuts!
Kerrygold butter (although it wasn't cheap compared to regular butter, I think it was $5/lb).

Why freeze if you are going to use fairly soon? Doesn't ham last a long time refrigerated?
Sorry I misread your post Andy. I see you froze half and left the other half for this week.

I usually buy the block and grate my own. Any reason other than convenience you buy pre-grated cheese?
The blocks are sitting right there. Just curious Andy.
