What can you not live without from Costco?

Never bought them before, but after seeing prices for dried mushrooms in Italy, I'm thinking that tub of them at Costco is calling my name.
Those large plastic jars of nut meats; pork ribs; coffee; artichoke hearts; baking powder (when it's available) and tasting everything they offer at those sampler stations.
Aceto basalmic vinegar and organic extra virgin olive oil and org. spinach. Not to mention, Costco has the best bread in Juneau, AK- how sad is that? Sorry Silverbow.
sundried tomato jars
big rolls of plastic wrap and sandwich bags
organic butter (just a bit cheaper there)
chicken stock cartons and canned tomatoes
dried nuts during the holidays
cases of beer when i have a get-together
"Never shop there, never will'
Really? I'm curious why not?
I'm on my way tomorrow to buy the big bags of lemons...
Big blocks of Tillamook cheese
Bags of pinenuts that I keep in the freezer
Bags of dried cherries/cranberries
Sunsweet dried plums
Kirkland brand fruit and nut medley....great for hiking.
Of course the Hebrew National hotdog and drink at the end of my shopping.
Oh, let me count the items that I love from Costco.....
red meat, especially for grinding into hamburger
lamb chops butchered in house
prime rib eye steaks
Greek feta cheese
Parmesian and Romano chunks
Swiss slices for sandwiches
That triple cream which I can only buy when there will be tons of people in the house so I don't eat it all by myself.
Great prices when in season for Haddock and Wild Alaska salmon. Eat one meal and then smoke.
Smoked salmon when it isn't salmon season
Those bags of lemons and limes. Great price; if we can't use them before they start going bad, I juice and freeze them in ice cube trays
pacific chicken broth for those lazy days
5 lb bags of spinach
window blinds [still have 12 windows to go]
And then the occasional treats:
Stacy pita chips
la vache qui rie cheese
