    I only eat farm raised, free ROAMING (not range it's a crock) chicken fed a natural diet. I refuse to eat that nasty proccessed stuff. yuck.

    These stores are designed for those who have big families, big events and even people who operate small businesses and in this regard you save money and it's worth the fee. That said the average family of two I would say no it's not worth it.

    It's not as bad as it sounds. They have sprayers that attach to the toilet to hose off those messy diapers. I thought it would be horrible too but it's pretty quick and clean.

So what in the hell are you paying $50 for?

    So is joining a warehouse worth it? Am I missing something?
    Costco is God's gift to the world. It is the best thing since sliced bread (which they sell btw).
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    There is no way in hell I would do that. Of course I dont have kids. I dont want kids.... I dont want to be around kids.... I dont even want to see kids. Kids are like little drunk people.

    Sams IS Wal-Mart, they're the same company.

    Sams is just a cheap, crappy knock-off of Costco.

    No I see no point in it. I guess if you had a large family, then sure but I see no reason for my to buy a package that has the equivalent of two gallons of ketchup. Besides, I don't eat a lot of processed food if I can help it and that's where your savings are going to be at a place like those.

    I save a ton more money and get much better quality by going to a farmer's market once a week. For instance, on my lunch break today, I went to the market up the street that they have every Friday and I spent $16.00. I got a 3 pint mix of blueberries and strawberries, 10lbs of oranges, a couple pounds of baby bok choy, 1 lb of broccoli, 1lb of zuccini, a head of cabbage, 1 lb of cauliflower, and 2 cucumbers.

    You can't beat the price or the freshness.
