Many of you have probably got Costco membership in the UK but Eamonn was a bit of a novice at this stuff (Jan previously having had access to Makro in the UK). So, having established our Costco membership last week, we spent a good few hours in there today, having a good mooch around. We tried to be fairly disciplined, buying housewares/non-perishables that we wont now have to buy at the supermarket for months....eg: dishwasher tablets (box of 115!), Palmolive Original (the bottle is so large, we don't think we'll ever need to buy washing up liquid again!), 200m (yes 200m) of aluminium foil and a truly absurd length of cling film! We got a very large Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce for about £2.45, this being one of a myriad of brands that we recognise from the UK (Tetley, Twinings, Cadbury, etc).
We got a full size snow shovel to complement the mini one we got for the car the other day. It'll be useful for clearing our drive.
We did, however, succumb to a Christmas Greeter Penguin!
