costco shopping

my family always shopped at costco growing up. a family of 6 needs to eat! and it never really occurred to me how giant the portions were. until i got to college.

i went to costco by myself in college and i bought these:



and i was like HELL YES! A WHOLE PACK OF 24 TO MYSELF!!! I DON'T HAVE TO SHARE THESE WITH MY THREE SISTERS AND MY PARENTS! YESSSSSSSSSS!!!

first week:

THIS IS GREAT! i love these and i have like a million packs left! hoorah!

third week:

ohh....maybe i should take a break from these. gettin a littttle sick from them.

fast forward 4 months:

still have 8 packs of fruit snacks. but the sight of them literally makes me want to puke because i have had so many.

end of first year of college:

pull the dusty box of the 8 packs of fruit snacks out from under my bed and feel a wave of nausea as i look at them. i. will. never. eat. them. again.

so that's that. you can't be one person shopping at costco. it's even hard to be two people shopping at costco. you just don't want to have too much of a good item that will make you sick! which brings me to mine and JJ's current costco trips. in june i went like a million times to get the bouquets of peonies. but we get a cart and buy these things and these things only: garden burgers, cheese, granola bars and fruit. occasionally we will throw in peanut butter-filled pretzels or butternut squash ravioli (in the fall/winter only). but we only get those things to avoid getting too many of one thing! for example, i love pirate booty popcorn. it's the shit. but i would never want it from costco because i don't want to ruin it. know what i mean??

what have YOU gotten too much from costco that ruined it for you??

  1. Not allowed to even get a costco card b/c our mini kitch has zero space for bulk items!
