13 Things I Almost Bought At Costco

I went to Costco tonight for milk, and that store is dangerous. Here are a few things I was tempted to pick up, but didn’t.

1. Strawberry Cheesecake – Damn! It looked REALLY good! Luckily, Eric was serving as my conscious.


2. A new DVD player – Eli broke ours last night, so we really need one, but we decided to shop around first.

3. Monster Energy Drink – The lady giving out samples claimed it would help wean me off of coffee. But who says I want to be weaned off coffee?

4. Croissants – It’s very dangerous when I go into the bakery section. I would have bought these, but I didn’t need 20.

5. Stuffed tilapia – I really shouldn’t be going grocery shopping when I’m hungry.

6. Town House Flipsides – I love these things, but you can’t buy just one box, you have to buy three boxes. If they also sold beer dip at Costco, I would have been really tempted.

7. Waffles – Eli begged for Eggo waffles, but I know him and he would be waaaay sick of them before he finished the box of 60.

8. A gallon of Hot Tamales – I think I’m PMSing.

9. Apple Pie – It’s 90 percent fruit, right? That’s a health food!

10. Two cases of pop – Umm . . . okay, we really bought that.

11. Pizza – The only thing that stopped me is that it was so big that I didn’t know if it would fit in my oven.

12. A new grill – We would have to remove car seats to get it in the SUV. We’re going back for that one.

13. A 25-pound bag of rice – Eric thought we should buy this before the price goes way up. But, seriously. 25 pounds?

Impulse buying at Costco can be deadly! But the cheesecake....once in a while, why not!

25 pounds of rice would last only about two weeks in my house.

What would you do with a gallon of hot tamales? I am up too.

We don't shop at Costco, but if it's anything like Target then I'm with you! I walk into that store for one thing and leave with 30... :)

Good for you on curbing the impulse buys - at least for now!

Costco... So much stuff! OY! It's a place I should never go when I'm hungry.

Those pizzas are great, but they don't fit in my oven either.

Whatever you do--- don't try the coconut cream pie when they sample it. It's so yummy it's deadly! That and the big chocolate cake.

I know what you mean by big quanities, but I still wish they would put a Costco close to where I live. I go to Sam's but like Costco better.

I'd love to see what Costco is all about, but it's 30 miles away and I don't want to buy a membership. Sam's it is, I suppose.
