Costco Card

So I'm looking into getting a costco card to get things such as DDs pull ups, soap, razors etc. I know it's expensive but is it worth it?

BF and I have to buy pull ups at least every two weeks.

If you shop at Costco, how long do your items last you


Oh! And there's only 3 of us :)

Why use pull ups they are expensive and imo do more harm than good when potty training.

Is there a medical reason she is still in pull ups? If not do it the old fashion way. I had to take 3 days from work to break DD from pull ups but it was worth it in the long run.

As for Costco it is and isn't a good thing. Things like TP and hygiene items yes great to buy in bulk but do you have room to store it? Some foods are good to buy in bulk but stop and think do you have room to store it and can you eat it all up before it expires. I had to stop buy flour and spices from Costco as I was not using it fast enough and I would get bugs and spices would go stale.

When buying in bulk always keep in mind do I have room to store this thing 100 rolls of ____ and can I use all of it before it expires.

My daughter has autism and her language isn't fully developed so she can't let us know when she needs to go. We have to put her on every 15mins. She goes if we put her on(most of the time). Lol

She has autism, so her language isn't very developed so she can't tell us if she needs to go. But we put her on the toilet and she'll go but not on her own

And I plan on mostly buying things like soap and razors and things like that. As for food, I stick to my local grocery store. Lol if anything I might get some snacks or a yummy dessert every now and then. Lol

Honestly as much as I love Costco I would suggest checking out the Amazon Mom program . By signing up you get a discount and it ships right to your door.

We have the basic membership. I don't go that often. Some things are good. Once in a while I like buying meat there. Toilet paper is a great deal as is coffee, razors, batteries, ibuprofen. Things like granola bars for dd's snacks I like getting there. My favourite things to buy there are socks, underwear and white t-shirts for dh.

Go with a friend and check prices on many things.  After that only you can figure out if it will pay for itself.

You can go in for free just to see if it would be beneficial. I have one that I split with my sister. We have the cheapest membership at $55 per year so I pay $27.50. If you have a friend who is interested too split the membership with them.
I like it and I don't. You have to be careful of the pricing. Sometimes it is cheaper to buy the same items at the local grocery.
Good luck

Is there an annual fee and how much? I've been really curious because we are a one car house(for a short time).

I love Costco. Toilet paper and paper towels last me about 2 months. Snacks about 1-2 months. Meat a few months. Pull-ups over a month
