Samples today were hot bomb diggity. The best I’ve ever experienced at Costco. Apparently around 4pm is the time to go. I guess at the end of the day they have a certain number of boxes they have to sample, and if they don’t reach their quota they have to throw food away. So towards the end of the day, the sample sizes get huge!!
We weren’t complaining.
Soup, bread with jam, ice cream, pasta, chips, cheese with apple slices and potato salad were all part of our afternoon Costco snack. Yum Yum!
I took a bunch of random pictures with my phone so I can compare prices.
We’ve been shopping a lot more at Costco than Fred Meyer and it’s definitely saving us money. You know, because you save lots of money when you go to Costco and walk out spending $144.53. It does seem like a lot at first but it makes a difference when you spend a lot at once, instead of going to Fred Meyer and spending $30 or $40 here and there.
$14 for Good Morning veggie burgers. mmmmm! These were actually on sale. They took $3 off at the register. Score.
$10 for 3 half gallons of organic milk.
$6 for a bag of peas.
Cheese is EXPENSIVE! It’s a huge block though– I guess.
$9 for a big bag of organic carrots
$10 for 5 big avocados. Holy guacamole (haha) that’s expensive, isn’t it?!
We bought a bunch of random things — oranges, peas, pizza stuff, raisins, avocados, bananas, pasta, veggie burgers, dried fruit and whatever else is under that pile.
Do you think it’s un- ethical to go to Costco once a week for a free-sample-lunch?
Not that I have thought about that or anything.
