    I love Costco they always have great stuff, like HUGE bags of Stacys Pita chips for the same price of the tiny ones in the grocery and Chobani yougurt. Choco cover raisens, macadamian nuts, cute dresses for little girls and great seafood. Just got my membership last months and i love it!

    One of my favorite things to buy at Costco is their big tub of spinach. I also fill up my car with gas whenever I go there because it’s always a few cents cheaper!

    I’d have to say my fave thing to buy is a polish dog at the food court. I’m slightly embarrassed by this, but it’s totally true. I could buy 30 and 1/2 polish dog combos with a gift card (including tax).

    Oh! and magazines. Besides subscribing, no where else can you get an issue so cheap!

    Shannon says:

    It’s so hard to pick just one thing I love to buy from Costco because there are so many, but I guess I’d say the large jar of marinated artichoke hearts because they’re SUCH a huge savings from the small jars or cans at the grocer. Great giveaway!
