Fruit tale


Recently at the grocery store I bought 2 pears. Within 2 days I ate the pears, they were delicious. I have no idea how much they cost. Maybe 2 pears for 1.50? Not really sure, But.... Two weeks ago I see Pears at costco. About 12 giant Anjou pears for 5.99. Bear in mind, I have no idea if this is a great deal, but I assume everything at costco is so I buy those. It took about a week for them to ripen. I had a delicious one several days ago I had another sweet, yummy one a couple of days ago. (by the way, No one else in my family likes pears) Today I threw away 10 rotten pears. I am no math genius but the two pears I ate were $3.00 each, and now I don't think they were THAT tasty. That Costco is trouble, last week I threw away a few pounds of strawberries, one loaf of green bread ( had to buy it in two's), and a stinky piece of stuffed salmon. When will I learn? I should probably stick to buying only non food items. OR, I can do what I see SO many people do there. RETURN the rotten, smelly food that sat in my house a whole week and pretend it's Costcos fault. I have even seen people returning used shrubs! Seriously, they've been in the ground, they have roots and trails of dirt. Maybe they forgot to water the poor bush, but costco takes them back. geee...... where did I throw those rotten pears??? ( only kidding)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! This is belly laugh material!! OMG…..this is soooo how I feel! I was laughing out loud and Pepper asked what I was laughing at…..so I read her your post, she howled too! This is so true…..I used to be duped into buying the produce and the same thing happened. It seems more expensive than our road side stands anyway! This is hilarious. I have taken to buying only the non perishables unless it goes in the freezer. The bread was too close to home for me; we just threw out almost a whole loaf because the freezer was full. The title of this post should be when anything goes wrong….just blame Costco! I love Costco actually; we even have the deluxe card!
Take care….I love pears too!

Yeah, I have a similar issue with costco and sam's. We're vegetarians so there's even less for us to get. I guess we could use a big container of ketchup and various cereals, but otherwise, how would be make up for the membership costs. Hmm.

I think we've all been taken in by those deals at CostCo and elsewhere. It seems so practical in the moment, but never works out for me in the long run. Glad to know that I'm not alone.

And the receipt! I can't buy in bulk either, it goes to waste. It seems we have to live and learn (the expensive way).

LOL. It took me so long to learn this lesson! I raised 5 children (and it seems most of their friends)and buying big, cooking big all made sense. Then it was just me and my husband - and I was still at it and throwing away enough food to feed a whole other family. I have finally learned to do for two - which means the only things I buy at costco are completely out of the grocery department.
