We go once every season, mostly to stock up on organic coffee beans, half the price of good coffee in town here. Our fav is Zavida.

* They usually have blocks of cheese on specials. Our favs are: Balderson cheddar, 2-year old, and Jarlsberg.
* Vitamins of all kinds
* Tylenol in big jars, as well as Lakota for arthritis (my father and husband swear by it).
* Chocolates (can't resist the specials)
* Whole nuts in bags (pecans, walnuts, almonds)
* Large bags of ciabatta buns

Impulse buys of things on sale:
*my DH bought a mitre-saw, a brand name he had never heard of, (Kawasaki) for 1/3rd the price of any other he was interested in.
* 10 folding chairs for our nearby monastery (Buddhist)
* an external Hard Drive for computer
* 100-foot heavy duty extension cord
* 2- one piece outdoor overalls for monks (just because they happened to be in the right colors, matching their ochre robes).

OMG, I am seriously thinking of pitching a tent and living at Costco. Am envious of everyone who has one nearby! I wrote down everyone's suggestions, and we ended up with enough artichoke hearts, antiperspirant,onions, mushrooms,bacon, bleu cheese, dishwasher soap, the most gorgeous green olives, chicken broth, batteries, you name it, to last us till next year! Took 12 trips from the car to unload. Who needs Disneyland when you have Costco!

Gawd, we're a couple of hicks...

I must be odd, I have never wanted to go to Disneyland and you can't keep me out of Costco.
