Say you use 25 2ply sheet avg per shit, and the avg roll size is 400-500 sheet 2ply (i'll use 425 costco rolls), im being overly generous with the numbers here... that mean, you gotta take 510 crapper(using the costco rolls number) on avg to clear out that 1 costco package, but let be generous and round it down to 500 as you may need to use some loose sheets for other mis-adventures.

And, say you do the deed on avg of 3 times a week.
You'll need 3 years n 2 months to clear out that 30 rolls costco bulk package for 1 person. With extra sheet of paper to spare on the side for other use, such as blowing your nose.

And if you're a family of 3, that mean this 1 costco bulk package will last you 1 year ez.
Lol, I once asked my Dr. how many times is normal? He said it varies from people to people. Some do it 3 or 4 times a day, some just once a day, some once in two days , some once a week and even some once in two weeks!. And, then he added, but when they do - you better get out of the house!

@markopas or others with membership. If you don’t have a membership (mine just expired) and order off costco.ca some grocery and edible items charge a $3.00 surcharge. If you are a member do you still have to pay the surcharge when purchasing online?
On Koodo $40/6gb plan.

I never buy online except for the odd occasion. I figured the 10$ extra they charge for free shipping isn't the only thing they charge.

At Thorncliffe today, item 119110, Ace Bayou 29" metal barstool is still $19.97.

I will mention that many clearance furniture items have dropped another $50 - $300 since they were last posted in this thread.
(Besides the stools, I think only 2000277 Bayside Accent Console had not dropped and was still 499.97).

So what's the protocol on purchasing non grocery items such as furniture or electronics? Is it allowed or frowned upon as it's non-essential?

I suppose only your conscience can truly decide that question.

If u go for groceries and the non essentials but only to find the groceries u want gutted, there is no harm in still purchasing the non essentials.

I'm Friday I went to 3 different Costco's and all had huge lines, as they are limiting number of people in the store.

I really didn't want to wait that's why I kept driving to more Costco's. I'll try again on Mon when I'm prepared to wait. Anyone actually waited and can shed light on how long it takes?
