I like the unique items, especially kid's books. I like when I can share large quantities so that I can get a better variety of items. It is a hard place to shop when you have a limited budget.

I miss my membership. I found I could "pay for it" just with the few things I do buy in larger quantities. Worcestershire sauce and real Vanilla are much less expensive there than anywhere else. On those 2 items alone, I probably save the membership fee in a year lol. I also wish I had it for Christmas shopping as I did a lot of my shopping there.

Costco is awesome if you can afford it! Or even split the membership with a family member and go together!!

I love costco. I have a family of 5 so it is well worth it, especially the natural and organic items. As well as eggs and milk. Yes it is in bulk, but you can separate and freeze most items. My favourite thing is the Atlantic Wild Coho Salmon, I buy two, cut them into portion sizes, wrap and freeze. I go a minimum of twice a month, and use it all the time for gas. I ahve also used my card in the states....the wine section/variety is a nice feature and they have way better non food items but I wouldn't go out of my way to go there.

Love my Costco membership. Love it in the US too. The quality for the US is still good in Costco. And what I also like is if I buy something at the Costco in the US I can return it to the Canadian store. Love their return policy. You have to be very disciplined if you are on a budget. I have learned to really not buy out of temptation. There are some things you can get there that you cannot get anywhere else. And propane refills are so much cheaper there too.

I like what Costco has to offer, I just can't stand how busy it is, and how long you have to wait in line to check out. I try to go at odd times when it's less busy. Costco offers some great items at decent prices, their books are generally cheaper, they have some nice clothing at decent cost, and they have some unique items you can't find anywhere else. We bought the membership that gives you cash back at the end of the year, if we receive enough back then it is worth the extra cost. Will see how it works out at the end of our year.

Even though the closest Costco is now 1.5 hrs. away from me, I still get a membership every year. I like their specialty items (huge packages of Kimchi soup, Ranch dressing, croutons, toys, book sets, etc.) and I love being able to shop on Costco.ca. Last summer I bought a hammock online. This summer I bought a gazebo for my back deck. I've bought vitamins, a sewing machine, and plenty of other items at Costco online as well.
ETA: Their prices on cat food and cat littler are excellent as well.
