“If you are like me, I never save any money at Costco because I always come home flooded with things I wanted but did not need.”
Now, I really like Costco shopping but I am avoiding it these days because it’s filled with things I want but don’t need.
If you are like me, I never save any money at Costco because I always come home flooded with things I wanted but did not need. And none of it was planned. Maybe they should try being a little more everyday and practical. Then I wouldn’t walk out of there broke.
It would be a great idea if they filled the store with stuff I don’t need or want. If they did, I am sure I would shop there more often. As it is, my wife forbids me to go any more often than once a month or two.
