Addicted to Costco

Just a quick note here. I went to Costco this evening to buy some jellybeans and get a little chocolate (major PMS jonesing right now). I walked out an hour later and $220 poorer with a cart full of who-knows-what. Well, I did buy myself a new suitcase. And, there were a few bags of junk food.

Note to self: do not go shopping while fighting PMS cravings.

It's not just Costco either. I'm worse at Sam's Club b/c it's only 1/2 mile from my house, and I'm always in there. I find so much "useful" stuff there. Dangerous!

Apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks this way. Here's another perspective on "Costco-ing", a new verb. Does that mean you go "clubbing" if you're hitting Sam's Club? Hmmmmmm.

I totally agree with you. I no longer go grocery shopping without menus written out to support my shopping list. That reminds me, I need snack food for school. :)

I am so completely thrilled that the nearest Costco is over 10 miles away and no where near anywhere else I go! I never get outta there under $200. Heck, the last two times it was over $1000!! Ok, that sounds horrid, but one trip was before the holidays with lots of gifts and the other was this past Feb with the wood laminate flooring. Still..ouch.

I need to go Costco-ing too....it is dangerous though! I love their spinach salads and the turkey roll-ups. How long until you send the kids back to school?

I love Costco too! I keep close track of our finances in Quicken, and everything I buy at Costco gets categorized as "groceries". So, if something like a computer monitor ends up in my cart, it's just "groceries" which is a necessity, so I don't have to feel bad about buying it.
