Toss Up

So, the poll is complete and the "eh's" have it:

For the record, we went ahead and did it - before the poll closed, we had a party to throw. I've allowed myself to be talked into thinking its a good deal. There just appear to be some rules to follow. The first seems to be that you only buy what you mean to buy and you go to CostCo first for those things. Every time you buy something at another store you could have bought at CostCo you are paying just a little bit more for the membership.

Second, beware of the fresh food. Which is not to say that the fresh food isn't good. Its more about whether or not you can really eat three heads of lettuce, or ten pounds of potatoes before they spoil.

Oh, and don't buy a 50" Plasma TV just because its right there in front.

We decided it's worth it just for the super-cheap photo printing. If you ever pay for prints of photos (digital or otherwise), it'll pay for your membership almost immediately - and they do a really nice job, at least at our Costco...
