What are the things you love to get at Costco?
The first things that come to mind are olive oil, toilet paper, paper towels, birthday cakes, socks (obviously less regularly), maple syrup, smoked salmon, rotisserie chicken... and many more things that either aren't coming to mind or change regularly. I will edit with more. I love Costco!
Edit: spices, salt and peppers, grains, organic chicken broth, organic canned tomato goods, frozen chicken, madeleines and other sweets, bagels .. really anything that won't go bad right away (or I can freeze) and I know we'll use over time. I do like some of their fruits and veggies but others just come in packaging that's way too big.
My mom stocks up on the chocolates and gift baskets they have around the holidays to give out to everyone. They're always great and I always hope for a leftover basket. :lol:
Goodies in the frozen food aisle:
- Green Chopsticks potstickers
- Stuffed grape leaves
- Turkey lasagna
- Cheese & spinach ravioli
- other various items

Not one near me. The closest one is 125 miles.
Closest Sam's is 50 miles. I don't have a membership anymore. I used to get dog food, tissues, electronics, bacon, snacks, and toilet paper.
Wish we had a Costco, but we just have Sam's Club.
Toilet paper, olive oil, leather fence building gloves, tall kitchen garbage bags, and laundry detergent.
Our closest Costco's are 196 miles, another one 196 miles away, and the closest is 156 miles away. Where we live, distance doesn't matter. Shopping trips are planned that include Costco, Winco (I get all canned foods there as well as spices), WalMart, and Home Depot. It is just a fact of life here. Our closest WalMart is 117 miles away and people make that treck without batting an eye.
Toilet paper and paper towels are my excuse to go to Costco.
I say excuse because one time we went to Costco for toilet paper only and left after paying over $300 for our basket full of stuff.
Naked Juice (the little bottles)
We don't have a Costco close by, but I spent almost twenty-five hundred at Sam's last year.
dog food and chews
I like their sheets...
And sometimes they have workout clothes that look a lot like a much more expensive brand that I love.
I forgot the dog food! We also buy our dog food, treats, and beds there. It's quality food for a great price.

I hate costo.....went in there for someone the other day, just to pick up and order. It should have taken 10 min and took me almost 40!
I can't understand why someone would need 40 toothbrushes at once, unless maybe you are a dentist?!
"you should discard your toothbrush after about 3 months" so a 40 pack should last you around 10 years

I love their Kirkland brand flavored water (like SoBe's) and the Carribou cups for the Keurig. They also have dry roast almonds.
I love their chicken pot pie… but my wife can't eat it, so I don't get it anymore.

-Big bag of HOODY peanuts...
-The triple flavor cookies; choc chip, white choc & nuts, and the oatmeal & raisins. I don't really care for the oatmeal ones, but gotta have the other 2 flavors...
-The chocolate striped square shortcake cookies
-Stir Fried veggies...
It's all good!
Costco gets me into trouble. I don't think I've ever made it out of the store without spending $100.
Anyway, I typically stock up on household items: toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing/laundry detergent, vitamins, allergy meds, bottled water, etc.
