    So replace COSTCO with Walmart and add in two more kids and you have just told the story as a day in the life of me. I.swear.to.God.

    That is our story too. It is so sad. a few weeks ago, we went to Costco to get shrimp scampi, my husband’s favorite. We had a budget, but produce got in the way. Like tiny colored peppers and corn (which ended up being bad and we had to return it). Know what we had to leave without? Yep, the shrimp. My husband was devastated. Happily, a good Samaritan behind us in line bought it for my husband after seeing his distraught look - I actually blogged about it here: http://www.nibbana.net/a-random-act-of-kindness . Yeah, we hate Costco too!

    Forget showing the birth movie (although that is terribly traumatic too)... stories like should be told in middle school sex ed classes!

    “I hate Costco…The way recovering smokers hate Neil Diamond concerts…”  How about “The way recovering pot smokers hate Steve Miller Band Concerts”!

    I’m with Shannon.  I despise WalMart - with all of my being.  But slap my butt and call me hypocrite because yes, I still shop there.

    Kid cracks me up. Tonight at Costco. Very loud: ‘Stop walking daddy. I have to fart!’

    HA! Absolutely true! Costco induces impluse bulk buying to heights unseen.

    I hear ya! I too, “hate” Costco. However, they do sell massive packs of condoms in the pharmacy section. Usually right by the 39 Chapstick assortment packs! Ha!

    They do sell condoms in bulk. But never carry much variety. wink

    This exact same thing happened to me YESTERDAY!! Went in for laundry detergent, softener, and paper towels and walked out $86.16 poorer, along with 18 eggs, like 10# of grapes, 3 rope toys for my baby Kaya (my baby walks on all fours, wags her tail, and licks her bum), a case of grapefruit cups and a 800# bag of Salt & Pepper Pistachios! WTF?!

    That illustration is absolutely teh awesome.  Sounds like all kinds of AWESOME fun shopping with you and the kiddies.  If I’m ever in town, I’ll come help wrangle them with you. 

    Cause that’s the kind of friend I am.

    XOXO

    If Costco had a kiddie play area like Ikea…I would gladly drop $236.18 (my last visit for diapers)weekly.  We call the samples “dinner.”

    Hahaha!
    Though when I read $100, I thought, boy, she gets off cheap.  We can pretty much guarantee $300+.  We have one more kid, though…
    I once checked out my recept and found I’d spent $78 on CHEESE!

    Substitute Costco (we don’t have a Costco here, WHAT? I KNOW!) with just about any other store and I have so been there (particularly about the kids ripping things and running like banshees and losing my ever-loving mind).

    Precisely why I refuse to join one of those warehouse clubs!  LOL!

    you are HYSTERICAL…if you werent already married i would ask you to marry me…
    No Costco here but we have sams which i imagine to be very similar-the hubby refuses to take any of us with him when we need something from there…

    I so hear you!

    I am not a member but my friend who is has taken me a handful of times. Just a little of this, and oh this, and of course this, and THIS! really adds up!

    What, you don’t hit the food court first and get a smoothie or two to quiet the masses?  That’s how I manage to do it with 3, 3.5 kids. 
    But God love those huge carts - I can fit so many kids in there.  But I’ve also gotten out of Costco for like $5-$10 if I’m only in and out for samples and milk/bread.  Rare, but it happens.  Only takes us 5mi/15min to get there though - I’m sure it’s a bit longer in your neck of the woods.

    This post had me dying with laughter. Perhaps it’s because I am so glad we’re not the only ones who wish Costco sold condoms in bulk! Then again, it would just be our luck that we would buy the only defective box ever made…

    Have you seen our Costco video from last year? Talk about birth control. http://bit.ly/15LVvV

    Are you sure you are not my sister-in-law.  I could have sworn these were her kids becuase mine would never, I mean NEVER act like that.  Actually my 12-year-old knows better, and the baby, well he is the baby still.  I loved this story.  I always dread to see the amount on the register at Wal-Mart.  I guess the point is make the list and stick too it, huh?  LOL.  Love your site.
