I had my first big Costco shop on the weekend. Met my Melbourne BFF at Queen Vic Markets for a multicultural food festival as part of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival only to find the same food stalls that appeared at the Night Markets and the food festival we went to at Fed Square the week before. At least we can well and truly tick the food festival box on our list of ‘things to do because we live in Melbourne’. We ended up grabbing a bite from inside the bakery/deli section of the markets, some sustenance before hitting up Costco.
As alluded to in my last Costco post, I find joy in supermarket shopping. It has a strangely therapeutic effect on me so the prospect of a giant Costco shopping experience is one of excitement. Sad, I know. I wanted to share some pics with you but please not the size of the trolley which may not come through in the photos – it is about 1 x 1 x 1.2 metres in size – jumbo cart!
Khara and I stocked up on items that will last us a month and then some. I won’t have to buy toothpaste for the rest of the year after picking up a three pack for the price of one and bulk frozen berries for around $7. The money and time saved dedicated to groceries makes it well worth the membership. That and the giant swirl frozen yoghurts from the cafeteria.
NB: when looking at the total amount of items bought you must bear in mind I live in a single person household with single person consumption… I will endeavour to get a sneaky pic of someone with an overloaded trolley next time.
