Why I still hate to shop at................

Costco...About 2 years oh shit I mean almost 3 years ago I did a post in regards to why I did not get or never have been part of the Costco crazy - click here for original post http://mommybags.blogspot.com/2011/08/i-dont-get-it.html.

My feelings and things have not changed much since I bitched out on that post. Still the same crap and I still want to shoot myself in the head whenever I leave that damn huge grey square box of hell. I have a big pantry now and more room to store food but I just cannot bring myself to shop there. The selection is not the healthiest and really for a family of three the HUGE economy sizes are just too much. We try not to keep processed food in this house and all I see when I step into Costco is economy size of my ass that could possibly happen it I shopped here on a regular basis.

When I do I have to make a trip there I need to make sure it is not with my husband and my child. I get a huge wave of anxiety as soon as I go through those huge double doors and my hubby shoots right for the electronic department...Really do we need a 100 inch TV?   Is the 60 plus we have now not enough????  The other big fear is that the grey ugly box will swallow my daughter never to be heard from again - Kidding aside my biggest fear is turning around and losing my daughter in there - could you imagine losing your toddler in Costco - get ready for major mommy melt down because this BITCH here would lose it...fuck just the thought makes me sick I mean damn where would you start too look....Frozen foods among the 1200 taquito boxes or the aisle with the 120 pack razors and gallon size shaving cream????

When we do get the courage to do go we are usually there as soon as the door opens so we can get in and get out as long as keep everyone from ohhhh and ahhhhh crap in the aisles. No I will not get my jeans here and no GG you cannot have the 1200 jigsaw puzzle the dogs end up eating and throwing up. Here is another thing - Why the fuck do people eat here?  I know the 1.00 price tag is too much to pass up but come one that is just wrong - shit that cheap cannot be good for you it is like anything sugar free fat free and gluten free = chemical shit storm.  I mean I have heard of people making it a family outing day to go to Costco. I don't get it...I just don't get it. Can someone out there make me get it?

I too am confused by Costco. I still have not met a family who needs to buy 48 yogurts, or three stalks of celery every week? I do have to take my kids though, they love the samples.
