To renew Costco membership or not renew Costco membership? That is the question. I didn't end up using it as much as I thought I would. Because I can't stand that fricken' place! I am usually only need a couple of things (when I'm getting a prescription) and when I see the lines to check out I say "forget it". But, we did use Costco for a few large purchase items......our security camera systems (we bought 2, one for house and one for our detached garage) and I saved a bundle on my glasses. For the regular purchases, if there is something I really want to buy there, I could just have my mom go with me and she pay for it with her card. But, the eyeglasses were a huge savings.....But, I can't think of any big purchases like those we would do this year. I certainly won't need to buy any glasses this year and nothing big like the security camera systems (they were $400 each). If it weren't for one of DH's meds being so much cheaper there, I'd never set foot in the place......and I don't have to have a membership to get prescriptions. I'll probably try it for one more year and see how much I use it. I guess you can always cancel it anytime and get part of your money back, if I change my mind.
