how Costco always gets me
I love Costco.
I love Costco almost as much as I love Target, which is saying something. A big something.
Costco is good at what they do. They can sell you anything. Anything! They make it easy and simple: PRICE. PER. UNIT.
And if you do the math, you can easily see that Costco pretty much beats everyone out. At everything.
Two pounds of cheese for $5.98? Yes, please. I'll take it. And actually, I'll take two. Or three.
Last time I went to Costco I bought six 32-oz containers of coffee creamer. That's 1 1/2 gallons. But it was such a good deal!
Here's what else Costco is good at: SAMPLES. Those samples work. At least they work on me. Granted, I am a person who is easily swayed. On my most recent trip I tried a spinach artichoke dip with some crackers. It was good. And, sure enough, after I tried it I wanted that $8 container of dip and the $6 bag of crackers. And now Darren and I like it so much it will probably become a semi-regular purchase.
And that's how Costco always gets me.
