We went to Costco with Paul's Dad on Saturday. Everything was big. I mean really big. As we walked through the warehouse, I kept thinking of Marge Simpson saying, "That's a great price for 12 lbs. of nutmeg!" The thing is, I'm not entirely sure if prices are substantially better buying in bulk but we stocked up anyway. We got decent bagels (not the doughy horrible things you get at Tesco), 24 cans of Diet Coke, 2 massive bottles of olive oil, a barrel of soy sauce that would have made my Grandma proud, a huge bottle of tobasco sauce, Oreo cookies (now I can make the base for my Nanaimo bars at Christmas), cheese the size of breeze blocks, Christmas wrapping paper and bows, and a body pillow (no, I'm not pregnant but I do have a bad back). We would have bought more if we didn't need to leave room for our suitcases and Jasper. Now we're stocked up for years to come, and are well prepared in the event of a tornado or other such natural disaster.
