When I was pregnant with #4 a cranky old dude in line behind me at Costco was complaining about how many kids I had, and it's only okay to have a lot of kids if you can afford them, and blah, blah, blah...I wasn't overhearing his deaf whisper to his wife, he was actually telling me, my pregnant self, with a cart overflowing with groceries and 3 kiddos.
(Okay, so I didn't actually say that last part, but I SHOULD have, and I will if I ever run into another old dude who fails to mind his own business.)
The thing that is so funny to me about his stupid comment is that we were at COSTCO, you know, the store that sells everything in bulk. The store that caters to large groups, businesses, or in my case what society deems as a freakishly huge family. We shop at Costco so we can afford to have a large family. Admittedly, some things are cheaper elsewhere, especially on coupon or store brand, but there are several Costco products that I love and always buy.
In no particular order of importance, Costco products I love are:
|The price has increased to $1.50 a pound since we started buying these years ago, but its still a good price. We blend them with milk, yogurt, and a bit of sugar for a yummy breakfast smoothie. A great way to get fruit into your kids in the winter when strawberries are icky and pricey.|
|It's Zyrtec, for like $17 a year! and it goes on coupon every so often as well. Our allergic to all things outdoors family loves this stuff!|
|Totally Lean and only $1.99 a pound. Need I say more. YUMMY!|
|I was nervous to buy this when they first came out with it, because lets face it, some store brands just aren't worth the savings. And store brand PAM is one of those things. When they offered a coupon for it, I gave it a try. It, like most Kirkland brand products is excellent.|
