A new Costco store has opened about 40 minutes from us, and I'm looking for advice about their products. What is good/bad, value for money etc. We are thinking about getting a membership, but don't want to pay for one if the products aren't any good. We have heaps of underhouse, enclosed storage, and I already buy in bulk where I can....

We don't have one near us... 2nd drive away, but we have a membership! It has been worth it for us - we've made some big purchases - a cubby and stereo system (good Sony one that was $300 cheaper than anywhere else!) in terms of groceries - we often buy stuff to split up with mum and dad and have been happy with everything we have bought. They have most brands we usually buy and some interesting US brands too. DS and I love the massive box of brownie mix from there and DF loves their bake at home rolls from the bakery section.
Even though we only go about twice a year, it's worth it for us. Have also gotten some great Xmas pressies.

Subbing. The first QLD one will open next year and it's in the next suburb over, yay! Do they do fuel in other states yet?

We buy the toilet paper as well - we bought some in July and it's still going. There's another 2 full packets of 16 rolls to go!
I like the Kirkland washing liquid and their fabric softener. I have sensitive skin and have had no problems.
We buy mince there and haven't found it to be too fatty. It costs us about $18-20 for a big tray and we break that into 5 different bags and freeze.
We do the same with bacon and chicken breast.
I buy 3L of milk for $2.85 and eggs are cheap as well.
We buy glad ziplock bags - heaps and heaps of them really cheaply and have a stockpile.
Tissues are overpriced in my opinion.
Beer and wine is fairly cheap depending on what you buy.
I buy really big bags of broccolini fairly cheaply - I THINK it's about $6-7 ish?
I think they're apples/oranges/avocados/kiwis are too expensive. I did buy a huge bag of sweet potatoes last week for $7.
I looooooove Costco!!

Oh and muffins! They sell their own for about $10 for a tray if 12. They freeze very well in ziplock bags. They also sell bulk tubs of the dry plain muffin mixture and you can scoop out what quantity you need and add whatever you like to it.
