We've been using their TP and paper towels for some time. I have found their Kirkland Signature brand to be very good quality.
There's only two of us and we find it worthwhile shopping at Costco. I don't mind getting mayo in a 1.7 litre jar. I don't mind getting three bottles of capers at once or a giant bottle of Worcestershire sauce. I like their big bags of frozen stir fry vegis too. Lots of stuff that takes a bit of storage, but is well worth the savings. 12 jars of passata at once? No problem.
We used to buy the big pork loins and portion it for the freezer. We would get the trays of one inch tall cylinders of ground beef that they called "hamburger patties", but which were far too large for a hamburger. We just wrapped them individually and froze them. I don't remember how much each one weighed, but it was a nice amount for defrosting one, two, or even three at once, depending on what we wanted ground beef for. We didn't stop getting the meat because of any problem with the quality, it seemed fine. We just started buying locally sourced meat instead.
