So, I took the time to do the math:
The whole point of the Keurig is that it makes coffee fast with no mess, right?
A Keurig machine costs about $200
A full espresso machine, the ones that will grind the coffee for you (no mess), start at $600
If you have two people drinking 3 cups a day:
One pod Keurig is about $0.70 so $4.20 / day
1lb of coffee makes about 64 cups at $7.00/ lb, so about $.60/day for six cups.
That means you will be spending and extra $3.60/day for the Keurig
Or, in about 110 days, you would have paid the difference to get the real espresso machine.
What you save in about two years lets you buy one of the really fancy ones:
Oooh two more stories.
First one: As most elementary schoolers did, I misbehaved a lot in class. One day, my teacher wrote a note home in my agenda book. I really did not want my mom and dad to see the note, so I did the only reasonable thing I could think of. I grabbed a white out pen and started trying to cover up the note. The pen, however, was running out of white out, so I only managed to cover up about half of the note home. To help sell my story, I told my parents and the teacher that one of the dogs had knocked over a bottle of white out that happened to be near my agenda book, and it only landed on the note. It did not work.
Another time, I had forgotten to get my mom to sign my reading log for the week, so I did the only reasonable thing I could think of. I forged my mom's initials onto the reading log, and wrote a note at the bottom that said something along the lines of "sorry my handwriting looks so different. I hurt my hand." They didn't fall for it, and I received a lecture that day about how forgery was illegal.

All the teef in the world can't buy the satisfaction of stomping a 1500$ resin model with a pile of crap you glued together in your garage.
I wanted to point out that Costco sells emergency food in buckets... its cheap... I actually am going to start to use it as regular food because you can buy a years worth of food for less than $1000. Now, I don't use it for every meal. But, as a supplement it saves me tons of money. Since its individual ingredients you can make actual meals with it instead of just MRE style living.
Oh, and these are cool.
EDIT: Amazon has a "Starter pack" with 400+ meals for less than $100 if you want to try it. That is what my first order was.
If it's a 24 Hour Fitness, just find a friend with a Costco membership and give them cash to buy this.
Hard to get a better deal than that and you avoid haggling or the hassle of quitting later on.
Depends on what you're looking for. Massdrop has Orion belts on sale every now and then that are great with jeans. Here's a link to one on sale right now for ~$32 Orion Latigo Belt
If you're looking for something a little dressier but also inexpensive, give Costco a try: Costco brown, Costco Black
The question is a little vague as expensive/cheap is completely relative. I really like my Orion belt for jeans, but I tend towards an Allen Edmonds belt for fancier occasions. Beware though: a lot of people don't like their belts around here, and I've heard of some quality issues, but for me it's held up and looks really nice.
You can't really compare prices between an 8 oz bottle and a 128 oz (gallon) bottle. I've never bought single serving milk in the US, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was around the same price.
Edit: Costco charges the equivalent of 1.05 euro each for a 24 pack of this organic chocolate milk.
Determine weight of hot tub + water + occupants + bystanders (there will be bystanders)
Determine square footage of the area over which the weight will be distributed
Look up your county/city codes for ~~"dead load" (i.e. amount of static weight a building's floor is rated for)~~ sorry, furnishings fall under live loading
If the weight/area of the hot tub is greater than the ~~dead~~ load rating, then no, it will not work.
Ok, assuming this hot tub with dimensions 70"x61" and using the typical values found on page 7 of this document (40psf/300 lb), you'd already fail because the concentrated load is far too high. But disregarding that:
Hot tub above, filled (says 1830 lbs in specs) + ~6 people @ 200lbs each = 3030 pounds
70"x61" = 4270 in^2 = 29.65 ft^2
Loading = 3030 lbs/29.65 ft^2 = 102 psf
No, this won't work.
EDIT: forgot that I specified the hot tub; revised calculations
This is me.
Costco - Please hear me out...
If you are cash strapped and need basic white, colored or pinstriped shirts that are IN EVERY HALF SIZE (i.e. I wear a 16/34 and don't want a 16/16.5 - 34/35), Not a huge selection but they fit well and at $17.95 are a great deal. Just don't let anyone see the Kirkland tag...
Allergies. My legs used to itch so badly after I got out of the shower (or exercising) I would contemplate walking into oncoming traffic. 10mg of this and I haven't itched in years.
I just got these socks from Costco, and honestly I am VERY impressed. Softer than my smartwool hiking socks and a little lighter than my medium weight hiking socks. The price is great and I love that this pack comes with two "normal" colors and two fun striped pairs.
Okay, before we all start losing our shit, it looks like their cashmere sweaters are 10-20% cashmere.
Mens Cashmere 10%
Womens Cashmere 20%
"Camera system is 3MP/1080p Q-see model nvr, got it from the Costco site."
You have to be a member to shop at Costco. The membership terms stipulate you have to show your receipt when you leave. This guy agreed when he signed the membership form.
>To ensure that all members are correctly charged for the merchandise purchased, all receipts and merchandise will be inspected as you leave the warehouse.
I don't think he has a leg to stand on. ^sorry
We used to have a pool and I had an ample pantry for my wife and I to live off a few days. Once the kids showed up and we purchased a house without a pool, I decided I should be better prepared.
Costco is a good source.
I have two of these:
I bought something like this, except for 30 days. It came with the gel fuel. I figure it will give our family of four seven days of food, should we need it.
They don't seem to offer it anymore.
We have our camp stove and fuel for it to cook on.
I have been contemplating a solar panel, though... maybe its time.
If you smoke, it's cheaper to wear new socks DAILY than to smoke two packs a week.
Over 28 days, you would spend:
Wow. On the Costco website . It's a lot cheaper ($11.99 vs $14-16 in other stores) and it has MORE (19 oz vs 16 oz). Thanks OP. I was just about to buy more on Amazon but this is awesome!
PM me your address and I'll mail you a couple of gold experience tickets tomorrow. If you want to see it in 3D you'll have to pay surcharge but the ticket itself will be free.
EDIT: They are these: [link]
Costco Kirkland Signature Trail socks, 4 pairs for $12. If you're not a member they charge another 5% iirc
Why not give it a try, since you're curious? You may love it, or if you don't, Costco will refund the full $55 membership fee:
> We will refund your membership fee in full at any time if you are dissatisfied.
Get one of these
No more problems ever since I got one for work. The cord now just rotates any way i do.
Costco ON Whey
A little pricey, but 30g of 100% pure whey isolate in a 36g scoop. Tastes and mixes decently well.

Costco Member Privileges & Conditions

They come out to 12.59 with free shipping for non-Costco members. For reference I am a size 9D and I fit size mediums perfectly
I like glass for storage. Costco has a great set that is pretty cheap.
A salad spinner I used to think they were a joke but they seriously cut your prep time down and salads last much longer when properly dried.
A quality kitchen scale.
The first one in the image above is THRIVE dehydrated food in #10 cans. It will have a 25 year shelf life. (Probably longer, but thats all they claim.)
The second one is Nutristore, which I have never heard of before. Before buying that one I would do some due diligence but it also claims a 25 year shelf life.
Costco has a number of other packages they offer. Here is the emergency food category.
Taken from the company's website:
Annual 2% Reward and More
Executive Membership is our highest level of membership. All Executive Members enjoy a 2% Reward (up to $750 per year) on most Costco purchases, as well as additional benefits and greater discounts on our suite of services.
Gold Star doesn't offer any of those things.
They are in a lot of different spaces via partnering (like traveling/hotel/car insurance/car repair/car purchases/etc) that you can use with your card that will get you discounts (like Best Western 10% off for just showing your card) among many others.
To put it into perspective, to get $48 back (which is less than the <$55 required to not be charged the extra $55) you would have to spend about $200 a month.

That's the contract that you agree to when you drop 55 clams on a costco membership.
If this was bestbuy, I'd have sympathy for the guy; you don't sign a contract to shop at bestbuy, and they have no right to try and detain you. But you can't just agree to a contract and then think the terms don't apply to you.
with all that scissor shit in the middle, how do you get under it to work on it? Looks like you would have to work around it?
A friend of mine bought this from Costco. My father in law is going to be installing one at his house soon as well.
They are also well known for paying their employees well above what their competitors pay, and the potential of upward mobility from their stores to positions in corporate.
I assume these are the kits?
For the lazy:
All of them include a roof mounting kit.
D’Artagnan Japanese Wagyu Boneless Ribeye Roast A-5 Grade only $1,500 - 11lbs min
i really want to host a party just to have everyone pitch in a bit to get this
That looks like real Kobe beef. I do not remember the specifics behind the "ban", but we were unable to import it for a very long time. There are some breeds of cattle that I believe they cross bred with angus cattle in order to make the "kobe" or wagyu style beef we had in the states for a long time.
Oh and prepare your wallets.
COSTCO is selling the following Kevyn Aucoin brushes:
Foundation Brush = $49.99 USD / $82 USD @ Nordstrom
Soft Buff Powder Brush = $38.99 USD / $60 USD @ Nordstrom
Contour Brush = $26.99 USD / $40 USD @ Nordstrom
Base Shadow = $26.99 USD / $40 USD @ Nordstrom
Concealer Brush = $21.99 USD / $32 [USD] @ Nordstrom
EDIT: Fixed the last part of the list.
Black camis go with everything. Flannel, translucent shirts, jackets, pajamas, etc.
My flowy navy blue maxi skirt. I don't even know why I own other summer clothes.
My heather grey sports bra from target. I own 3 at least and wear them 6/7 days of the week.
This top from costco. It looks really good with the sleeves bunched up to my forearms, it's wildly comfy and light enough to not be too hot.
( I live in a town of sportsy hippies with no fashion sense, don't judge me)
You can also do this at Costco, and they aren't limiting it to California, Arizona, New York and Oregon
The recommended set is $24 at Costco right now.
It's Pyrex glass, freezer/oven/microwave/dishwasher safe, and supposedly 100% leakproof
> premium card
you get 2% back on *most purchaces. If you're shopping for a family and spend over $400/mo the membership is free because of it,
it's still a better deal than $55/mo for a regular membership as long as you spend at least $250/mo.
Costco Kirkland Signature white t-shirt 6pack. No, seriously, these guys. Wash and dry them on high heat and they shrink up about a half inch all the way around. Very thick fabric, and medium fits my 6'0" 190 frame fantastically slim. My only complaint is that the neckhole goes up slightly high. Also about 1/10 the price of the specialty brands being suggested in this thread.
I came across this, courtesy of a friend. Many people know of the company Gerstner, who has made fine wood tool chests for many years - elegant and well-made, but not cheap. Many people also know that Harbor Freight has sold knockoffs of them for a while for just south of $100. But Costco has a version that is miles better in quality (than Harbor) for only $39.97 with free shipping. I picked one up and am amazed at the quality, including magnetic catches for a couple of the closures. All you need to do is purchase some pen trays, if you want, cut to fit the drawers, and you can have voluminous and nice-looking storage for a lot of pens, as well as tools and inks and whatever. Take a look here.
They have those in stores, except they sell them in 2s. Since I usually go to movies on weekends, it's generally at least a few bucks cheaper for me to get the tickets at Costco than to buy it at the theater.
>And because of this, American's have a massive cultural obesity epidemic, not a cocaine problem.
Bitch, if I could get 40lb of cocaine for $67 I'd have a fucking coke problem.
Its close, its $20 off on amazon right now.
One game does not determine the entire market though, used and new games drop in price much faster than they did before. Not because the platform its on but because publishers and retailers have seen that having sales generates more money than keeping it full price for years
I got my 40-gun (so, 20 guns in reality) Cannon safe delivered from Costco for $799. An extra $20 to the delivery driver got it to my basement door from the curb. It has 2 electrical outlets, a USB jack, and an ethernet port on the inside, serviced through a sealed connection (to help maintain its fire rating) by a plug and USB/ethernet ports on the outside.
I don't use the plugs for a dehumidifier; rather I use one of those canisters with the rechargeable silica, and I use the plugs and ports for a 3TB hard drive that backs up my home network.
The only issue I have with it was a slight chemical smell from the carpeting adhesive (cleared up with some deodorizer and coffee beans) and a friend of mine with the same safe had his electronic lock go bad after a year and it was out of warranty, so he had to pay for a new mechanical lock and a locksmith to drill out the old one and change it.
Similar featured safes at sporting goods stores were a few hundred more to start, and tack on $200 for delivery - that made the Costco membership I purchased worth it (and I've continued to shop there so it was a win-win).
Warehouse store selections vary - this appears close to what I have with slightly different branding - although it has a door organizer which would be nice!
EDIT: nevermind - this is the current version of the safe I bought. Not currently on sale though. It has an extra USB port and a door organizer as well that mine does not have:
I highly suspect the item in question is this.
I'm stocked and ready
Well 48 packages costs $8.26, from Costco, but I'm not sure if they'll ship to WI... [link]
How many packages do you think would be enough?
Edit: here's another seller if Costco won't ship to WI, but it's twice as expensive... [link]
Costco. Normally buy 5 pound bags of ON there for less than 10 bucks per pound, but this deal recently hit;
Muscle Pharm Cookies and Cream
Bought 2 of them and plan to get 2 more before the deal expires.
You double-screwed her because $100 is the premium, "cash back" membership. Your spending made her money.

>Executive Membership is our highest level of membership. All Executive Members enjoy a 2% Reward (up to $750 per year) on most Costco purchases, as well as additional benefits and greater discounts on our suite of services.
Just an FYI, COSTCO is selling KA's Contour Brush close to $26.99 in comparison to the $40 price tag on Sephora's site.
Go to Costco and get the 2-year 24 Hour fitness deal. Even if you have to get a Costco membership it is still way cheaper. [link]
COSTCO currently offers a brush and the compact for $32.99. The compact itself (NOT including the brush) is also sold at Sephora for $44. I would go with COSTCO's offer because it also offers a brush.
If you have a Costco Membership you can get one at Costco. Although it is $100 more, it comes with a couple of things
I have a few LLBean t-shirts that are "unshrinkable". They're certainly the best colored t-shirts I own.
Although and possibly off topic, Costco sells some 'made in america' white t-shirts made by Kirkland which are extremely tough and seem to be built to last. [link]
> places like Costco you've agreed to have your purchase/receipt checked upon becoming a member.
The best part is their reason for this policy
Yeah... "To ensure that all members are correctly charged for the merchandise purchased" haha.
I purchased this from Costco and have it bolted down in my home. The benefit to ordering online from Costco is that they will ship it for free via a freight delivery. Eliminates you having to drive the hour or more, loading/unloading from your truck, and it typically is delivered fairly promptly. I've got about 7 long guns in there and 5 handguns and there is still plenty of space for more.
Costco also sells real security cameras.
The cheapest one is $79.99. Definitely worth it for the safety. Plus then OP would have proof of the stalker and possible identification.
Non-perishable food can have a pretty long shelf life (~30 years) I suspect if you vacuum seal them, or have canned food, they can last even longer.
Water and air will be a problem, because theoretically you may want a fully enclosed or carefully filtered system to prevent contamination (or else why bother staying inside for 70 years). That will require a considerable and constant supply of electricity.
With enough electricity, you can even grow your own crops without ever seeing the sun again. The question then is finding very reliable methods of generating electricity.
Since we're indulging in hypothetical here, I say a good combination would be using an array of atomic batteries for the first 10 years while waiting for the the fallout to settle, and then activate an array of solar power panels. There should be a mechanism to prevent dust build up on the panels (if you choose a sunny dry environment). If it's possible to get an external water supply, the electricity can be used to generate hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen can be stored to generate electricity through hydrogen fuel cells.
It would be quite a feat of engineering to make these things low-maintenance/maintenance-free for 70 years.
HEY PEOPLE! Costco sells both Tyson chicken and beef.
Looks like these are online also, size medium and up
their wool hiking socks are back in stock online also
I have been drinking the Premier Protein shakes for almost a year now. They are fairly reasonably priced and I can get them at Costco. I like the Chocolate the most.
This is link for the delivery of two cases but you can buy them by the case at any costco. They have Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla.
I believe Costco was sued for this and lost. If your membership has been expired for two months your renewal date is adjusted to one year from the date you renewed.
If you haven't been to Costco in two months my guess is that they aren't losing a lot of business on you. It would take six years of doing this to get a "free" year but that is effectively just a year's time that you did not have one.
One free year of no membership. Congratulations ...
I'm guessing that you mean Portland, Oregon and not Portland, Maine.
>where to park
It is technically illegal to sleep in a vehicle overnight in Portland. There are several vandwellers and RV dwellers in Portland even though it is illegal. The ones that I have seen park in industrial areas near downtown.
[ Edit: It seems that mentioning that some vandwellers in Portland park in industrial areas has gotten some people pretty upset. I recommend the vandweller parking tips in this link:
Portland requires parked vehicles to move every 24 hours.
There are a couple of 24 hour fitnesses in Portland. You can get a membership for $15 a month:
Information on where to go to get free showers in Portland:
The good news is you can now get authentic Japanese A5 Wagyu from Costco for only $1200!
It'll be just like the steak you had in Japan and for just slightly less than the price of a plane ticket.
Jeezus. They are glorious. Any idea how much they run? Costco's website says coming Spring 2015. These seem like they would be a lot of fun, but as a parent who has to clean those monsters....not so much.
For anyone interested:
This might be the most white-bread Martha Stewart thing I have ever seen ( [link] ) it doesn't really look like a tepee and other than the general shape and the name. I think your co-worker may just be a SJW if he can't explain it further than "That's someone's culture".
Get the free pass and check it out. If you like it then go to Costco and buy the 2 year membership for 369.00. Even if you don't do the full 2 years you still save a bunch vs $40/month
This is why i hate juicers. I want juice, i dont want to have to make muffins each time i juice something. Not to mention cleaning out the trap and the whirling blade thing. Yes i know, you are supposed to juice the drier veggies or fruits first then the juicy ones to wash it all down, its still shit. =\ This is the one i had.
It did what it was supposed to do, the pulp was dry, its just that juicers are wasteful and inefficient. Meh, Ill take my 1.5 horsepower blender and pulverize entire fruits into a juice. More nutritious, easier to clean, less wasteful, no requirement to fucking back bread each time i do it. wtf.
When it comes to laundry detergent, never buy Sun. It's so cheap and gross and ewwww. Gain, Purex, or Tide... however, Costco has a really lovely yet cheap detergent.
I still love Gain (well, pre-Freshlock Gain, anyway).
I'm not sure why you wouldn't want to buy it at MC, by far the best selection around. The only place with a better selection would be the internet IMO.
If you have a specific model in mind look at costco and see if they have it. Their selection is nothing compared to MC, but their prices are good. I bought a Dell XPS 15 for several hundred dollars cheaper there than anyone else (including dell) had online or anywhere. Exhibit A: Dell Costco
Heh but the box of then takes up space ;-). You gotta buy those over and over too. Pyrex is cheap and better than Tupperware.
I snagged this at costco for $30 and has lasted us 5 years so far:
Nope, the one I picked up had special cooling beads or... something.
I don't know. Science. It had science beads. Cool science beads.
Meh idk. Cool that they threw in movies, but [here's the same TV at Costco]
Is it legal to store a pistol inside a case like this:
...empty gun with no trigger lock, but next to a loaded magazine, which is also in the locked pistol safe?
Also worth mentioning it has been bolted to a chest-of-drawers and can't easily be removed from it.
hey did somebody call me =)
The 5ml of oil specified gets you up above 2g of omega 3. If keto chow is your only source of food then it's probably a good idea to do the full 5ml/5 pills. If you're eating other stuff that has omega 3s in it then it's probably not as vital.
Also, looks like the stuff you are taking has a higher Omega 3 then the Kirkland one I'm using. I would recommend cloning the recipe and put the figures for your pills in, you probably only need 1 or 2 of those ones.
The Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes! I got them from Costco and they were like 12$ for 150 wipes. A lot of wipes would really irritate my face but these work so great and don't bother my skin at all :).
I like the disaster/emergency survival pack they sell, I imagine every american has one of these in an underground bunker under their house :)
Well, there's always Costco Online, where you can order 72 lbs of Parmesan for only $899. Thank god for those of us who live hours from the nearest store ;/
I bought one of these a week or so ago. Features "Hydraluxe® Gel provides a cooling and blissful sleep experience." So far so good, but the real test for me will be in spring/summer.
I just bought some last week! Costco. $12. They're the "Head" brand running gloves. I loooooooove them. Here's a link.
They're pretty warm, and yes they work great on my phone. Several of my employees and other co-workers have them and love them as well.
It may be boring, but they're nice, and they're practical, and sometimes that's what someone needs/wants.
I'm pretty sure that the Costco terms and conditions for membership provide a clear and unambiguous rule that you must present your receipt upon request when leaving the store.
>Shirts and shoes are required.
>Members are welcome to bring their children and up to two guests into the warehouse, however, only Costco members may purchase items.
>Parents are responsible for their children and should not leave them unattended.
>Members are responsible for their guests and other family members.
>Costco reserves the right to inspect any container, backpack, briefcase, etc., upon entering or leaving the warehouse.
>Liquor and tobacco sales cannot be made to minors.
>Costco policy prohibits firearms to be brought into the warehouse, except in the case of authorized law enforcement office.

So, not only did he waive his right to leave the store, he should have known that he could be detained under a retailer's shopkeeper's privilege.
So, they had a right to detain him (likely). Question is whether using martial arts against him was unreasonable.
$27.10/month. Completely worth it.
Edit: I know it's not LA fitness, but there are a helluva lot of 24hr locations in H-town.
Edit2: This is the super sport membership - get more access compared to the regular sport membership. The super sport is only available online.
I've shaved that before, I am not tremendously harry myself but enough for it to bother me... Anyway, the problem with shaving is that hair starts growing back SUPER quick and it is prickly as hell, trimming might be a good way to go. Trimmers are hair trimmers/clippers ==>> LIKE THESE
Also, wet wipes are WAY BETTER than any TP you could think of. Check out Costco's
For someone considering installing Solar Panels sometime in the next 2-3 years -- Is there some technical advance in Solar Panels that I should wait for? Something that would significantly increase the efficiency of solar panels, like this Grape Solar one sold at Costco?
If you're willing to commit to a 2-year contract, Costco has 2 year memberships at 24-Hour Fitness for $349.99, which comes out to be little less than $15 a month. That's probably about half the normal cost. The 24-Hour Fitness right at Hwy. 50 and Bradshaw has 3 or 4 racquetball courts.
>Bagel Bites come in packs of 9.
Yeah, maybe for an amateur they do.
Get it at Costco
Add a pillow top to one of these and it's an amazing buy.

Aggressive Costco membership.
edit: For those in Europe who have never heard of Costco, welcome to warehouse shopping in the USA.
Eggs by the 15 dozen, $20
the protein shakes they sell there are not half bad. Pretty filling and they have vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry in flavors at only 160 calories too.
From the US site warranty:
"Touch screen tablets are not included in this Service Plan."
edit: I'd love to be wrong; but it would suck to pay the $100, make a claim, and find out that you're not covered.
If you have a Costco membership or know someone with one, I recommend these capris:
They come in purple, pink, blue, and gray. They're $17 and I have 3 pairs. I find the material is thick enough that nothing shows. My friend vouched and I am hoping she's not lying to me. Regarding pockets, there's a small pocket on the right front side and a slightly bigger pocket on the back. The small pocket can hold keys or coins whereas the back pocket can hold an ID card.
According to Costco's own site, a Business Membership includes a license to re-sale their products.
They even help provide you with necessary paperwork if you choose to re-sell cigarettes.
EDIT: You will need a Resale Certificate from your state's Department of Revenue. That also allows you to avoid paying sales tax when you make the purchases from Costco. You should be able to find this information easily enough by googling your state and "resale certificate".
EDIT 2: I re-read your post and caught that you're contemplating altering trademarked goods for re-sale. That's an entirely different can of worms. Costco won't care, but you'll have a different set of issues with respect to the manufacturer. Unfortunately someone else on here is going to have to help you with that issue.
I didn't know Costco sold any road bikes with 105. Is it this one:
If so it might actually be worth buying and then paying a competent LBS to check the assembly.
Bought an Osaki 3D Massage Chair. I may not buy any guns ever again, because I may not want to get out of the chair.
Scotts has been on a hydroponics buying spree. They also bought out Aerogarden (to my great annoyance at the time).
Before that Aerogarden was a penny stock, almost bankrupted and got themselves delisted from a stock exchange. They are still a high risk micro-cap company but have major backing from Scotts. Here they are being mentioned about being in to the cannabis market:
From the main OP article: will bypass hydroponics retailers and sell General Hydroponics products in “big box stores” such as Lowes, Wal-Mart, and Home Depot.
Yup, they've started doing this with Aerogarden systems, also. I've seen them at Costco.
BTW, the Aerogarden sucks for flowering cannabis.
Just an PSA, allergy medicine is super cheap at Costco.
