I would just absolutely love to have a Trader Joe's near us, but the closest one is in Atlanta suburbs. It is about 65 miles to Costco in Birmingham, so unless we were going to be in Atlanta I can forget shopping at Joe's. I wouldn't want to make a special trip....
Thanks for the membership info..........quite helpful We haven't even renewed our Sam's Club yet...lol

I like the Hummus Snacker Packs. They are great for packing in your lunch with baby carrots. They also have good dried apples that are great for lunches (about 30 calories and taste good). I noticed that Costco is starting to sell a lot more organic foods now.

We always go there for fresh fruits and veggies. Sometimes we have been able to find lamb chops at our Costco, but not the last couple times. The salmon usually looks good, too. If we don't have time to make our own bread, the Aspen Mills brand is clean. Defnitely get your raw nuts like almonds and walnuts; and if you can control yourself with a "treat", keep an eye open for holiday specials on dark chocolate - but make sure it doesn't have any kind of HFCS or corn syrup in it.

One of the things I love that my Costco carries is dry roasted edamame. A great source of protein and helps fill me up. I live in Hawaii though so I am not sure if this item is carried on the mainland Costcos.
