Costco is a great place to shop IF --
- You have a car.
- You need a lot of something. Perhaps you're holding a big party and want to make large quantities of chicken. That kind of thing.
- You're willing to buy what they have instead of expecting to get what you want.
- You can join up with other city cooks to buy and divide up large quantities.
Otherwise, you are probably better off shopping in one of the city's smaller, city cook-sized markets.
What to know: You must purchase an annual membership to shop at Costco so factor this cost into the value of the groceries you buy.
