Addicted to Savings

Do you have a favorite Costco cashier? Write your shopping list out in the order that you encounter items on your path through the store? Salivate when someone says the words "chicken" and "bake" in the same sentence? Then you might shop at Costco too much. 

One Costco superfan on the r/Costco Reddit forum asked users to "tell me you go to Costco too much without saying you go to Costco too much," and the responses are amusing, to say the least. If you relate to any of these popular responses, you are probably a Costco superfan as well.
