Costco for the Win Again.

A few months ago I posted that I was cutting up my Sams Club card and going with Costco. I can say that I made a great investment by doing so.

Costco has my car battery, it has more CCA's and costs less than the ones sold at a nearby auto parts store.

I have lately been having a bagel with peanut butter for breakfast. Costco sells 1 dozen bagels for $4, and they're baked daily.

Last weekend I went in to take advantage of a coupon for a 160gb portable external hard drive for $80. I ended up walking out with a 320gb hard drive for $20 more, and at $100 it is much less than what it is being sold for online.

They have these pita chips which are freaking awesome. The Simply Naked ones are perfect when paired with the hummus that Costco sells.

Three words...Kosher Hot Dogs.

Lots of freshly pre-made food.

So I've listed all the advantages for me. I really truly do love going through the store because there's always something different, and it's rare that I don't leave with something for the house. The only thing I would want them to do now is stock organic chunky peanut butter (they only have smooth) but that's just me :-)

I'm probably a bit of an odd demographic for them because I don't have a family or a business so I'm less likely to purchase in bulk. However, they have enough of the fresh foods in decent sizes that I don't have to worry about not having enough room for it. I suggest that if you know someone with a membership, take a visit with them and you'll see what I mean. I've been told that the Arundel Mills location is even better than the Beltsville location, so I might have to check it out, though I love that I'm basically 5-10 minutes from the Beltsville one.
