Should I Join Costco?

Fiona | Jul 28, 2009 03:59 PM

I have heard a lot of good things about Costco as a company and I would like to support ethical businesses but I am not sure that Costco would really be useful for me. I cook/shop for about five dinners and seven breakfasts for a household of three every week. I get my eggs (very good, very fresh) from a local farmer. Some vegatables and fruit I get from my local coop, some from the supermarket. I get most non-food items from the supermarket and I generally use paper good made from recycled paper. I rarely buy meat but I do buy a lot of cheese. During the growing season most vegatables come "free" from my daughter's farm. Also Costco has a liquor store but the choice is limited and, because of state laws, anyone can buy there.
The closest Costco is about 7 miles away. For those of you who are members - would you recommend that I join?
