If you had to pick one store that characterizes your family, which one would you choose?
Hands down, I would have to say Costco is that store for my family. My parents joined quite a few years ago, and since then, we’ve made weekly trips to pick up milk, granola bars, and other staples. Quite often, we go just because! My mom has singlehandedly recruited 10 new members in the past year. You’d think she works in the sales department!
For those of you who have never stepped inside of a Costco, it’s a wholesale warehouse (just like Sam’s and BJ’s) and a shopper’s paradise. Besides food items, you can find books, electronics, health and beauty items, furniture, clothing, etc. all under the same roof at discount prices.
There are actually a few things that I will only buy there – contact solution, Aveeno body lotion, and ground flax. And yesterday, I added a few more items to that list.
It had been a while since my last Costco trip, and I was excited to see that new products have been added to the shelves (new to me at least). The [pre-rinsed] quinoa was a steal at less than $10. And in the dairy section, I was happy to find a case of my favorite almond milk. Three half gallon cartons for under $8! I also bought a 10 lb. case of Quaker oats, some flax, sliced almonds, tangerines, bananas, and blueberries (not pictured). My entire purchase came in under $50.
WARNING: It’s easy to get carried away and spend lots of money on things that seem useful at the time, so go in with a plan and stick to it! Not that I would know or anything.
On a completely different note, if you haven’t already seen The Adjustment Bureau, I highly recommend it!
Funny story actually…although I had heard of the movie, I didn’t really know what it was about. I honestly thought it was a political thriller! Needless to say, it isn’t. In my opinion, the movie is a mix of different genres – suspense, drama, a touch of comedy, but mostly romance. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt share a wonderful, natural chemistry that will make you believe in love at first sight. This is the kind of movie I wouldn’t mind watching multiple times.
Do you shop at Costco? Any product recommendations?
Have you seen The Adjustment Bureau? If so, what did you think?
