    @Shwa Girl, you are the Costco master! It would be nice if we had a Costco thread here so people could more carefully weigh whether they want a membership or not. I love hearing about your deals. Thanks!
    I love the better than bouillon as well, and the Costco size is a great buy. However it does taste a bit different than the jars I buy at Sobeys, it is the same brand but the Costco one is organic. Usually organic is a good thing but I find the flavour not as good as the non organic version!!

    Yes, I saw Better than Boullion there. Again, you don't have to get a membership because you can shop on costco.ca. I know the membership is not for everyone.

    BTW, Real Canadian Wholesale Club/Cash and Carry is a good alternative for some. Have found some deals on spices, rice, even veggies there. No membership required and you don't have to own a business to use this store.

    Had a membership that my parents paid for and cancelled it after a year, personally, Costco isn't for me (my parents love it). Only thing I find worth it at Costco is the gas, but I normally either go with my parents or fill up with their card as they always ask me to do for them. I can normally get a lot better deals at regular grocery stores. The precooked chicken is pretty nice there but I don't know, since I'm a student and can't buy in bulk that much it isn't for me

    Milk is generally cheaper, but not as cheap as SDM buying towards 20x or personal offer for me. Their cat litter is the only thing I miss about the membership
    I'm not close enough to a store to justify getting membership...

    If the Costco locations in Nova Scotia sold gas, I would definitely keep my membership. Unfortunately they do not sell gas here

    I don't have a membership (not worth driving through the busiest traffic route in Canada to get there for our small family lol). But we always ask our pal with a membership to buy us a deli Quinoa salad. It is really really good

    Both stores are around 20 minutes away from me, but I'd definitely fill up if they had them. A month ago, I was in Bangor and went to the BJs gas bar. It was 5¢ less per gallon if you shopped inside the store first. $2.05/gal just makes you sad as it's currently $1.15/L.
