How I Spend My Time At Costco



  1. I'd have to break out looking at the tools section and computer/electronics out of the “Shopping for items not on the list.” As close 2nd and 3rd, but the rest is pretty much the same.
    Costco Profits = 90% things not on the list, and 10% things on the list.

  2. Aaron, my list today included 5 items and I returned home with about a dozen items not on my list. So I believe that 90/10 number.

  3. Before we had kids, we'd go there for 1 or 2 things and always spend $100, mostly on the impulse stuff. Now, with 3 kids, I can buy mostly stuff on the list and still it's $300.

    Have you noticed that the Orowheat breads went from something like ~36oz. a bag to ~32oz. Other stuff is shrinking as well. I would rather they just raise the price a little!

  4. Straight to the liquor section. Before my 7 month old, it was fine wine like Malbec and Merlot's. Now it's Tequila and Vodka. Gimme the hard stuff!
    Love the list, btw.
