Love to use Costco as my stop when I'm traveling. The gas is always cheaper (today 20 cents a gallon cheaper than nearby stations), snacks are cheap (their famous $1.50 hotdog/drink deal) and it's fun to compare the different Costcos by region.
Today I stopped in Spartanburg, SC, where they have wine (which can't be sold in grocery stores in Tennessee). Grabbed a bottle of the Kirkland Chardonnay.
I keep thinking of the words of the wine buyer for Costco when confronted by wine snobbery implying a Kirkland label was déclassé: "It's a beverage!"
Didn't get to do a thorough shopping because of the weather -I was anxious to get back on the road. Absolutely crazy; cars were sliding all over due to the slippery roads.
