My wife and I debated renewing our Sam’s Club membership now that we’ve got a real, full-time permanent position and money. We don’t really have space for bulk purchases, but it might be nice to buy things like meat once a month instead of once a week.
We also thought things like headache medicines, which I go through pretty quick (especially when the weather’s changing) and stuff might be better purchased in bulk. Or the kids’ cereal. Stuff like that. Heck, we even keep straws and paper plates on hand, so maybe those types of things too.
Problem is, the selection of things – like meat, for instance – isn’t great there either. Still, we’ve been considering it for a while.
Then, while reading about USDA Prime meat and such on Sunday while we wrote our recent posts about steakhouses, we found something both interesting and amazing. Costco, said some of the people we read about, carries USDA Prime in some of their locations.
My wife, research mistress and sorceress of information, flew to the ‘Net to verify. Sure enough, on Costco’s website, she found USDA PRIME BEEF! Holy CRAP!
But we did this search before, and Costco’s closest location to us wasn’t a reasonable trip, even monthly. But my determined spouse did the search again and found Costco recently opened a new warehouse near(er) us!
We can get Prime beef – USDA Prime, not prime-because-we-think-it’s-pretty-good-stuff prime – at Costco! And you know what else we can get?
OH, yeah. I’m SOOOO getting a membership at Costco. Screw Sam’s Club. I hate what Walmart has become anyway, and they’ve taken Sam’s Club with them.
Ah, Prime Beef. I can’t WAIT for this. Now, I gotta get a grill…pronto….
