Nibbling Your Way Thru Costco

I've only this year been introduced to the seduction of Costco... The first time I went I had a distinct goal - to get pricing for my new glasses. It was obviously NOT a demo day...the aisles were clear and I got out of there under $30 bucks.. But its so much more fun to go on one of the demo days and nibble on the tasty goodies as you try to make your way thru the crowded aisles - reminds me of salmon swimming upstream... and then of course those tasty goodies just have to jump right into your basket...and it rapidly becomes a $100 or more shopping trip...but, I didn't need dinner by the time I got out of there!

Suze, this makes me laugh. My husband and I often time our trips to Costco with lunchtime, knowing full well we will graze through the aisles and call it lunch. We usually end up with heartburn, though... But the fact that you got out of there for under $30 blows my mind. You must have only bought one item.

well...I didn't even go NEAR the food that first time...I bought a cute little top and a couple of packages of undies...It just boggled my mind, the parade of carts leaving that were stacked so high that the driver has a tough time seeing...
