I got the Nature's Domain dog food and Edison likes it a lot. It's at 35 lbs for $27 or so.
I've bought the chicken several times before. Do it! It's good stuff.

I live alone (besides the fur ball) so the individually wrapped pieces are PERFECT. I can throw one or two in the fridge straight from the freezer bag.

Kirkland brand pecan halves in 2# bag. They are the best. Very fresh & BIG.
English walnuts come in 3# bags & Almonds I think .....I'm not sure 2# or 3#.

Chicken salad is very good, but Hubby likes mine better plus it's a lot cheaper to make. I put pecans in our chicken salad... YUM...

Berries, bananas, frsh fruit & veggies in general. Have to have my sugar snap peas... LOVE them.

Whole grain breads... and some vitamins & drugs.

Bought a BIG dog bed once.

"CERTIFIABLE COSTCO FREAKAZOID" That's what my family calls me. I think it is the greatest store that humankind has ever invented. LOL

I could list the whole store as what I have bought there since I became a member in 1986!!!! when it was PriceCo as a business member. It was a banner day when Price and Costco merged in 1993. My life and bank account have not been the same ever since.

OK my top three food items:

Pacific Gold Jerky- all varieties
Rotissery Chicken- $4.99 for a three pound net weight fresh cooked right off the rotissery chicken. how do they do it???!!! I usually buy five of these for a family get together.
Alcohol/Cheese any and all- I know thats four but it was a toss up.

Top three non food items:
Natures domain dog food-just took over the top spot.
Ass wipe
Paper towels.

They have (or did have, you never know with Costco) an excellent frozen chicken tikka masala.
There's also a blueberry bread loaf that makes excellent toast.

But I can't get Pico Pica there.

They only stop carrying stuff when it makes it to my "every time we go" list. I'm not even kidding.

I'm almost afraid to keep buying some stuff now, especially Artie's chicken jerky strips.

I spend about $100 there every 3 months or so, plus buy a tank of gas.

I get a case of the chicken stock to supplement my homemade batches, canned tomatoes for spaghetti gravy and marinara, frozen 4 cheese ravioli, frozen pizza, fem. products, tooth brushes, AA batteries, and perhaps an item or two from the produce, cheese, meat, and bread sections. Most everything is packed in portions larger than I want to go, and I really don't like any of their chicken salad type things nearly as well as what I can make at home much more cheaply.

They used to have frozen egg rolls I really liked and years ago I liked the beef taquitos but they got rid of the former and now stuff way too much mystery meat into the latter.

I spend enough there to pay for my "Executive Membership" (2% cash back) with a bit left over..... It really got bad when they built a brand new one just a few miles from my house.....

Woah! Well I shop in a lot of other stores too, don't feel bad.

Sometimes I'll spend a little more at Costco, and of course there is the occasional large purchase, but mostly I stick to my basics.

Ooh, I forgot the frozen raw shrimp! I buy those too.

OK....I do have a couple excuses...

17 yo son (self explanatory....)
20 yo daughter who attends school several hours away...Needless to say, when she comes home for the weekend, she leaves with armsful of TP and other goodies that mom has paid for....

In a few years, I'll have to come up with some new excuses...
