Tonight I got over my cheapness and bought a Costco membership. For forever I have just added my costco list to my mom’s shopping list and paid her back. But I’ve been on a kick to cook more lunches and I figured it was time to grow up and be a real legit Costco member. Tom came with me and the woman assumed he was my husband so he got a membership too. He probably would have gotten one anyhow being my “domestic partner” and all.

This is what my first Costco purchase looked like:

  • ground turkey 
  • chicken breast
  • kiwis
  • chia seeds
  • honey nut cheerios
  • yoga pants
  • hot wings
  • pita chips
  • humus
  • babybel cheese
  • avocados
  • plastic containers

At first I was a little depressed at how much I spent, then I considered what I wantedto buy/put back and felt pretty good. This is what my Costco purchase could of looked like:

  • a 50″ Samsung TV
  • double chocolate muffins
  • mangos 
  • kiwis
  • asparagus
  • a bike 
  • lamb roast
  • peach pie
  • salmon 
  • ziplock bags
  • shrimp 
  • ground turkey 
  • chicken breast
  • chia seeds
  • brownie mix
  • a wireless bluetooth speaker
  • honey nut cheerios
  • yoga pants
  • hot wings
  • dark chocolate pomegranate candies
  • pita chips
  • humus
  • babybel cheese
  • avocados
  • M&Ms
  • plastic containers
