$900 later, WTF. I don't know what it is about that place, but we tend to spend too much money there! I get so frustrated with the people who do not watch where they are going or they stand around with their cart blocking the aisles and people can't get through.  I wish the wouldn't give food samples as people hoard around like they haven't eaten in weeks. It's fucking pizza for crying out loud, do 20 people really need to line up to try some.

My 8 month old daughter complained less than my husband and I did!!! There vent over!

Your Costco must be busier than ours! We go at prime times and it isn't that bad. We do tend to spend a lot of money there, but it certainly keeps us going through the week. 2lbs of blueberries for $5? Awesome!

Ours is super busy as it is the only one in our area. There is talk of them opening another one closer to us. That would be nice, but then we may end up there more which would mean we spend more money!!

Ours is about 20-30 minutes depending on traffic. There is talk of them opening one 10 minutes from us. That is a good and bad thing!! Don't get me wrong, I like the stuff they have, but get frustrated with the people and parking!

I don't do Costco anymore but most of the time you buy way too many bulk items that you don't even have a place to store. What's good there is the bulk toilet paper, paper towels and soap. Dog food as well.  Clothes and items like that are cheaper at TJ Maxx, etc. and more variety. 

I would never go during the weekend. That's a madhouse.

I love Costco samples! It's the best thing about the store. I do hate that no one understands sample cart etiquette, tho. How hard is it to stand out of the middle of the aisle and to not grab three or four samples (especially when it's a popular item?)

I love going, when its not insane. My bf is one of those slow people that just stands there. Omg it drives me crazy. Its like, babe!! There's people wanting to get around!! Move the cart you goose! The sample thing doesn't big me too much except for the people who snatch it right before your hand can touch it. And they know it too! Then there's the kids who take like 5 samples and sit there and eat em. For real dude?

I am a toiler paper hoarder! I always get 2 huge packs and it makes me feel so good! My husband always questions why we need so much and I tell him it does not go bad so why not! Yeah we have a hard time going during the week and it tends to be busy then anyways. On the weekends they have more staff and open most of the tills.
