Really wish we had a costco near us

I keep seeing what kind of great deals they have and how they have organic stuff. The nearest one to us is about 3 1/2 hours away.

Do you have a costco near you? If you do, do you shop there?

I freaking love Costco! Especially given their ethical business practices.
I know you can shop Costco online, maybe look into that.

I go there probably every 2 weeks. I love Costco! I only live 15 minutes from one.

We dont have a costco where I live but we have a Bjs which is essentially the same thing. I do my main shopping at Bjs I get all storable foods and stock up. (dh installs floors and during winter we slow down so less $ so it saves us during winter). And we just constantly rotate the food. We go maybe once every 2-3 months. They have HUGE boxes of diapers and wipes and almost always have coupons (if your a memeber) for diapers! I do however buy my meat normally from Price chopper in large quantities and then vaccume seal them and freeze. I feel its cost effective to buy bulk at least for our family. 

Sorry the one near you is so far away =(

75 miles away.  We go to the Big Town about twice a month to do a "costco run" and stock the pantry up with all the little stuff.  The bigger stuff (25# rice, etc.) we'll puchase once a year or so to keep up the supply

I love costco. I get my eco friendly laundry soap, organic raisin, organic quinoa, organic rice, organic whole chickens and beef and a few other things. not much but enough to be worth it. I also found organic cotton pjs for my dd the other day.

I agree, way better than sams club which is run by walmart. costco treats thier employees awesomely.

There's one about 40 miles away. We aren't members, but I would be if we had more space to stock up.
