Reason #22 I Like Living Outside Manhattan


Costco. Because is there anything, I ask you, more maddening than paying 3x's as much as you should for anything and everything, and then having to heave and ho it all the way home on the stinky subway? Or worse yet, carry it slung over your arms in the middle of a snowstorm while you walk the 20 minutes to your apartment? I love you Manhattan, with all of my heart, but seriously. Sure, you can have your groceries delivered in the city, which is all well and good (especially in winter), but still. They don't always always bring exactly what you ask for, never deliver on time, and don't have the best selection. So it all boils down to ugh. Ugh. Ugh. Triple ugh.

Which brings me to my next point...


I lalalalove Costco. Most recently, for their fake Uggs. Aka, Fuggs. I've got a few pair of the real deal, but refuse to wear them out of doors for fear of them wearing out, getting dirty, scuffed, and chuffed (you may remember in my list of 100 things about me, when I said I've got a huge fear of things wearing out---this absolutely applies to my Uggs). But that's not the point. What is the point, is that last weekend we went to Costco, and what did my wondrous eyes behold? There, just inside the garage-like doorway, were a virtual mountain of Fuggs. Was this too good to be true? I had heard rumors of the existence of these Fuggs from Ashley up in Boston last year. But, alack, had no resources to procure them (i.e., Costco, time, and a car). And even when I did finally make it out of the city to a Costco, they had already sold out and I was informed there would be no more. I had resigned myself to the fact that my dream had died, and I would indeed, have to wear out my Uggs. But no. Costco has once again rescued and revived my dream of having perfect Uggs and ugly Fuggs. $34.99. Are they out of their mind?!? No, they're just Costco. The place where dreams really do come true.

Fugg Costco and Fugg the 'burbs - you've gone soft. You probably could have found CHuggs in CHinatown that were better and cheeper knock-offs while drinking SAGO at Wha-tever.

LOL! I agree. If you come back to NYC I'll buy you all the Chuggs you want! And some coco-mango sago.

You can't beat that deal. Not even in Chinatown.

LOL - That first comment is so great, I guess you set that one up, I am dying to see em now.

Agreed. If they had a huge Costco in the middle of Manhattan, now that would be the life. Hope you are loving Utah. Great time to move back, I'm craving fall!

Yeah for Fugglies! I can't wait to break mine out for the Boston winter which will probably arrive in about 2 weeks.

I think you should consider it :)

One of my favorite things they usually have at costco is the tiny cans of Tree Top apple juice. A bunch of them in a tin bucket with ice is a cute table centerpiece for an Autumn party. Love COSTCO!

costco is the greatest. we just made our bi-monthly trip yesterday and it was chock full of taste-testers and ended with a very berry sundae twist style served with three spoons. what could be better?

You failed to mention how you ever-so-gracefully knocked over the tower of Fuggs. :) Remember?
