Costco - is it worth it?
I have never been in a Costco but am wondering if it would be beneficial to join.

So, tell me what you think of being a member of Costco, what your favorite purchases are, what you always purchase there, what you never purchase there...

Go-

RE: Costco - is it worth it?
I was a member of Costco. I think Costco is good if you like to buy things in bulk--and I mean in BULK. If you are single person or a couple (as in my situation), I did not really see the benefit of Costco. However, if you have a family--I think the savings of buying in bulk are rather good. They do have everything there...

RE: Costco - is it worth it?
we shop at Costco. their brand "Kirkland" is pretty good. our fav is the TP. Some stock rotates brands, for a few months they were carrying Nexxus shampoo & conditioner, now its TIGI Bedhead. Other brands they have year round.

I have bought tires there, eyeglasses for the kid, a backyard playset, wine, books, clothes, beach equipment, as well as food stuff.

I second that. Thumbsup

Your glasses will be $300 instead of $600 even if you have presbyopia ad astigmatism. New tires will set you back $500 instead of $1000.

I dunno.

Sounds Costly.

I do have a small chest freezer that's usually pretty empty, so I have storage for frozen stuff.

I may have to check it out...will they let you visit to check it out without buying a membership first?

You could probably walk in and look around. I don't remember them checking to see if we had a card just to get in the door. I don't think they will let you buy anything without a membership, but you could call and ask.

Yes - you can waltz in and look around, see what they have, check prices.
