20 Survival Tips To Get You Through Costco Alive

1. Get there early.

Parking spaces go faster than a cheesecake sample.

2. Never let your kid bring a toy inside with them.

Because if she loses it in there you are NEVER. EVER. GOING. TO. FIND. IT.

3. Don’t forget your membership card.

Not just anyone can join this club, you know. Well, that’s not true. Anyone can. But they still won’t let you in without it.

4. Skip the flat bed.

You’ll want to strap your kids into the shopping cart so they can’t run around.

5. Don’t even think about going in there without a shopping list.

I once knew a family who went to Costco just to browse. I miss them.

6. Keep your head down and walk straight to the first item on your list.

You do not want the kids to see the toy section. And your wallet doesn’t need you to see all the cool stuff in the electronics section, either.

7. Seriously, don’t let yourself be tempted by big-ticket items.

8. Visit these lovely people every chance you get.

“Why, yes, I would like to try a chicken, apple, and herb breakfast sausage.”

9. Just be sure to get out of the way once you’ve got your sample.

10. Samples are awesome for kids too.

If your kids are picky eaters, you’ll love that they can try it before you buy it.

11. It’s smart to focus on nonperishable items.

When you buy in bulk, you’ll want to be able to take your time eating this stuff.

12. But think twice on perishables.

I once got a deal on four pounds of shrimp. For the next week I woke up every night in a cold sweat worrying that it’d go bad before I finished it all.

13. You’ll want to think about your freezer space too.

If your freezer isn’t big enough to stash a body, you probably should pass on that economy-sized box of waffles.

14. It’s easy to get distracted by the Costco-ness of it all. Stay focused.

Yes, those are 14-foot Christmas trees for sale in August. No, you don’t need one. What’s next on the shopping list?

15. Speaking of distractions… Don’t waste time searching for the ark of the covenant.

It looks like the same place, I know, but it’s not. Seriously. Stay focused.

16. If you get lost, don’t panic.

17. Also, don’t look up.

Or you’ll be in for a serious case of vertigo.

18. Just keep heading in one direction until you see something you recognize.

“There in the distance… Past the industrial sized jar of oatmeal… That’s the book section! I know where we are! I KNOW WHERE WE ARE!”

19. Once you have everything on your list, there’s one last challenge: checkout.

If your kids complain, remind them they have no problem waiting 45 minutes in line at Disneyland.

20. Congratulations! You survived!

Reward the family with a slice of Costco’s awesome pizza. And a hot dog. And a churro. Anyone know if they sell this stuff in bulk too?

17 Reasons People Who Don’t Celebrate Christmas Are Having The Best Day Ever

1. You get to sleep in.

You hear that? It’s the sound of little kids NOT screaming for you to get out of bed and open presents at five a.m.

2. While this is happening at many homes:

Fox / Via youtube.com

This is what’s happening at yours:

Touchstone Pictures / Via butlercat.tumblr.com

3. You can go to the movies during church services.

This means you get to enjoy a nearly private screening of “The Wolf of Wall Street” before theaters fill up with people fighting winter colds (yuck).

4. You’re feeling good about your finances.

NBC / Via youtube.com

Guess who didn’t just spend a crap load of money at the mall?

5. Discount NBA tickets are yours for the taking.

Season ticket holders who can’t make it to the game on Christmas Day are trying to unload their seats on StubHub for a fraction of the face value price. Booyah!

6. You’ve got (no) mail.

Warner Bros. / Via gifif.com

The lack of new email on Christmas Day means you can finally return all those emails you’ve been meaning to get to.

7. Most Starbucks are open.

And those who aren’t stuck at Grandma’s eating her Christmas fruitcake can pick up a glorious latte without waiting in line!

8. IHOP is open too.

So you can get your Rooty Tooty Fresh N’ Fruity on.

9. You can fly somewhere you’ve been wanting to visit for 20% less than normal.

And the airports are less busy to boot.

10. If you’re working, you’re making bank.

Disney / Via youtube.com

Time and a half for what feels like just about any other work day? Yes, please.

11. The casinos are calling your name.

Casinos are practically empty on Christmas, and hotel rooms are very inexpensive. (Vegas is another story, though.)

12. You can have a blast playing tourist.

Fun tourist spots like Madame Tussauds, Ripley’s Believe it or Not!, and even The Empire State Building are open and less packed than usual.

13. You can watch whatever you want on TV.

Life is good when your nephew isn’t making you watch TBS’s A Christmas Story marathon on ALL. DAY. LONG.

14. Your drunk uncle is at his own house.

NBC / Via rebloggy.com

Which is way better than yours.

15. You eat the best Chinese food.

December 25th is one of a Chinese restaurant’s busiest days of the year, and most restaurants make it extra fun by offering delicious specials.

16. You can have a relaxed hang with your friend.

For once you can enjoy each other’s company without worrying about all the things you need to get done.

17. You don’t have to clean this up.

That alone is enough to make it an awesome day.

25 Clever Classroom Tips For Elementary School Teachers

6. Make a four-pocket folder by combining a folder with brads with a plain two-pocket folder.

More pockets for more subjects! Get the directions here.

You could also do this with a bottle of hand sanitizer so you know they have clean hands after using the bathroom. And don’t forget to tie a rubber band around the neck so you get child-sized squirts every time.
