Dawg, I'm lucky enough to have a Costco 20 min. away so I go about twice a month. Up until 47 days ago, I always bought my cigarettes there as they were so much cheaper. Now I've found the Nicotine patches are a lot cheaper too.
I love their roasted chicken, and in the meat department, their beautiful little loin lamb chops are worth their weight in gold. I love looking at the books, and the prices are great...better than Amazon with the shipping.

If you don't like the Twinings Earl Grey, the Kirkland coffee is great. They stock Starbucks blend too. I buy the boxes of frozen chicken breast there. Its cheap and the quality is good.

TP
Paper Towel
Contact solution
toiletries of all descriptions (toothpaste, fem hygiene, antiperspirant, etc)
sesame crackers (OMG! SO GOOD)
Chips and other nibblies for the holiday entertaining
baking stuff (brown sugar, choc chips, flour etc)
sliced turkey breast (its expensive but we love it, it freezes well)
cat litter
dog toys, etc
tuna steaks!
scallops
cod fillets
two bite brownies
croissants

And once you're done with the essentials...go play in the book section. Mmmmmm! FUN! Tell us all about your trip when you get back!

All my Vitamins, Kirkland Acetaminophen, canned Tuna, White bean and Chicken chili (easy to take to work), canned mandarins, butter, cream cheese...sometimes I go weekly, books, they have had some Micro Plush Sherpa throws that are nice. Like others have said, garlic and onio powder. I also like the table grind Malabar pepper. I could go on and on.

Oh where to start......
Facial tissue
Laundry detergent
Sliced sandwich ham
Cheese (blocks and shredded)
Butter
Bacon
Frozen skinless chicken breasts/ thighs
Coffee
Cinnamon/raisin strudel English muffins ( these are yummy)
Canned diced and/or stewed tomatoes Chicken stock or broth
Marinated artichokes
pickled asparagus
Crackers
Cereal
Pain relievers
Vitamins
Baby carrots
Lettuce
Onions
Aluminum foil
Plastic wrap
Zip bags
Alot of this stuff, I only buy periodically. (lasts forever in a two person household)
If you happen to see John Wm. Macy Cheddar and Asiago CheeseCrisps snap them up! They are to die for, especially if you like asiago cheese flavor. We ran across them in a Montana Costco while on vacation this summer. We didn't find them anywhere else. They came in a chip style/size bag, I have been able to find them on the web sold in individual bags or in small boxes at really inflated prices. Our local Costco did not have them :-(. They may only be a summer item, who knows?
Hope your shopping trip is fun! Sadly, trips to our Costco are no longer fun. (too crowded) :-(

I have a 3x5 card that I carry to Costco with me, it says, "You DO NOT need Q-Tips!!" I think I have enough to last until 2014.
