My husband and I are addicted to Costco. We shop here for everything! We both buy our gas for our cars at Costco, and that alone is well worth the annual membership fee. We also get our car's tires done at Costco, and we use them for all our photo processing needs too. For that, you can upload your digital pictures online and pick them up at your local Costco within an hour. We buy our laundry and dishwashing detergent, dog food, olive oil, liquor, bread, cereal, eggs, and frozen hamburger and frozen chicken breasts. If we had a larger family (jus the two of us for now), we'd buy a lot more food at Costco as well. As it is, their fresh meats are great. We always buy our meats at Costco when we are having parties or grilling out with friends. The quality is great, and the prices can't be beat. Their flower bouquets are gorgeous - far better than you'd find even at some florists. .Now, Costco has even started selling magazines at 30% off the regular price. What's more, you can get an all beef hot dog and a drink for $1.50. Where can you beat that?
