I don't get it

House Mascot

I just don't get it....and I must say I don't like it! Yesterday I went to my personal hell - Costco{Sam's Club}. I know....I know you must be saying to yourself. How can someone not like a place were they sell a double fudge chocolate cake the size of my head.  I mean really...... do you need 96 units of frozen waffles? I know this place was originally set up for small businesses to purchase goods at cost to sell via their businesses. But you know that most of the peeps shopping there are individuals for their casa. I think this is a super place if you have a large family and unlimited pantry space. We don't have either so it is a place for me to go to if I need to shop for a special occasion {catering my nieces name ceremony party}.

Seriously...... I have been to Cosco maybe 5 times in my life time and each time I walk in the store with an open mind and every time I walk out I want to shoot myself in the head. First of all have you noticed how they do not mark the aisles...... very smart that means when your a Costco Newbie like I  you need to walk down each big ass  aisle and that is a big no no for a shopaholic like me......Oh..look at this a 56 ounce bag of peanut M&M's sure I will take a bag {WTF did I really need a huge bag of peanut M&M's}....Mmmmm a huge tin of mozzarella balls yep.....I guess I can have caprese salad for the next month!

Besides the impulsive purchases of ginormous amount of crappy crap food....I just find the big box store unattractive and just too big to deal with it. You can get lost in that place for hours and the crowds are ridiculous. I went there on a week day and it still sucked. It was lunch time so it looked like half the the shoppers milling around were there just for the free food samples. And let's not get into the massive lines at the registers..Pfftt. I did however find something that I loved - An industrial size Mr. Potato Head with mini potato head family! Awesome....Love it. It has supplied hours of countless fun for LDG and who are we kidding for hubby and I to!  All in all I would say it was a successful trip. I truly do not need to walk into another Costco for a looong while.

Happy Saturday!

Let's a whole lotta waffles!

I don't think that box of waffles would even fit in our freezer! We don't go to Costco, but in laws do a lot, so they always pick us up the meat. They have awesome fresh burgers.

Found your blog on MBC, and am now following. Your blog is great! The Random Mommy Blog

lol...I have a friend who calls Wal-mart the $100 Store and Sam's the $200 Store because you end up buying so much stuff when you go there!

LOL we are a family of 6 so on occasions we do get stuff from Samsclub. We could use waffles that size because a small box of 24 is gone in 3 days at my house. My kids can eat a person out of house and home and no one is over the age of 8 yet.

I am following you back :)

I am the same way about Sam's Club! My husband and I go in there and HAVE no place to put the back 50 hot dogs he had to pick up. However, I LOVE Mr. Potato, so I really need to see the Giant potato head. Thanks for the follow btw!
