My name is Kimberly & I’m addicted to Costco.

November 7th, 2007 · 3 Comments

You might laugh, but it’s really true. Costco is my favorite place to shop. You can get such a wide variety of things and at such good prices; it’s just impossible for me to pass up. We go there more often than the ‘regular’ grocery store (which is probably a sad little fact that I shouldn’t let anyone know since there are only 2 of us in our family).

What can you buy at Costco?

To me the better question might be: what can’t you buy at Costco? We buy grocery items, of course, home electronics, DVDs & CDs, software, books by the ton, clothing, car care items, prescription medications, eye glasses & contacts, wine, Halloween candy (we are the people that give out the full-sized candy bars in our neighborhood), Christmas trees & decorations, gifts galore, musical instruments, bedding. And, even though we didn’t actually buy the kitchen sink there, we did get a lovely faucet for it.

So, you can see how far reaching my love for Costco is. Some might call it a problem but that’s only because they’ve never been there. You get inside the warehouse and you can’t help but be excited by it, at least a little.

I’ve converted several people to my way of thinking, including my mom. She was a hard sell since she loves Wal-Mart and really didn’t think that Costco could possibly have anything that Sam’s Club didn’t.  Of course after going there a few times, even she saw the light and realized there really is no place like Costco!

    As an employee, I get the pleasure of seeing the diamonds everyday. There is a ring in the case I have been wanting for close to 2 years. I am shocked we still have it actually, because we rotate stock so often. It is beautiful with a large diamond in the center and diamonds embedded in the band on either side. It is $7299. I will never have it, but at least I can see it everyday!

    I’m going to have to try the trailmix because you are the second person lately that has told me how good it is.

    At Valentine’s Day they had a diamond that was $260,000 on their website!

    Costco is always really clean too. I find Sams kind of dirty and unorganized. I also love the Kirkland brand. I like the Kirkland tuna and the Kirkland fruit based trailmix. Both items are very reasonably priced. Also, you cannot help but walk past the diamond counter when at Costco and dream and froth at the mouth. I believe I have seen a $16,000 diamond in there.
