Yes, I admit it. I am a full-blown evangelist for Costco. Let me hear an Amen! I know that to many of you non-believers Costco appears to be cut from the same cloth as all those other big-box places of consumerism that are spawns of the devil, but there is a big difference with Costco, oh yes my fellow boomers. Let me expound upon its bountiful virtues so you too will be a believer.
Costco has a cornucopia of fresh produce and food products, many of them organic, at prices that make the people of Whole Paycheck Market tremble. They always have a bounty of organic veggies including spinach, mixed greens, baby carrots (cruelty free of course), and avocados. Let me hear you say AVOCADOS!. Amen. They also have organic items strewn throughout the store. From coffee, tortilla chips, cereal, hummus, garbanzo beans, to vegetarian chili, wine and yes, IPAs! Hallelujah! Of course, you may have to buy a quantity suitable for your entire block, but that’s okay, because you can share with your brethren, and they also sell the Foodsaver 4880! You can divide and place all your bounty into a bag, suck all the air out and will keep it fresh until the second coming.
One of the main complaints that I hear from those who don’t share my passion for the Big C is that it’s just too overwhelming. Upon entering a Costco, you walk into a sea of humanity and are instantly met with a wall of 50 inch flat screen TVs. Beyond is merchandise stacked from floor to ceiling with buy me written all over them. How is one to separate the proverbial wheat from the chaff? How is one to find those hidden nuggets of treasure among the mountains of merchandise? What to do…what to do? Well, due to popular demand from all my friends I have created …
