    I think another commenter mentioned this, but I think it bears mentioning again – the prices are good, but the quality is amazing. The meat, fish, produce and kirkland branded items are of such a high standard that Costco is my choice irrespective of price.

    Love the loaded trolley!

    • Corey says:

      100% agree with you on that. It is only since Costco came about that Coles and Woolworths started stocking ‘MSA graded’ beef. Of course even not all MSA graded beef is the same. Costco applies minimum marble score requirements to their suppliers that are above that of the minimum required to be considered MSA graded. Everything else is of the highest quality as you mention. Thanks for being a reader of Loaded Trolley.

    I agree also. The meat, fish, food and Kirkland products are amazing quality. Just on that the membership is worth it. Also, white goods and big screen televisions are a few hundred less on average than the major retaliers. One of those purchases alone justifies 3 years of membership.
