  • Amusing Costco item of the week

    2012 - 11.14

    It definitely used to be the case that Costco only sold huge quantities of things, but that really hasn’t been true for a lot of years now.  Sometimes you still need to buy more than you really want, but usually it’s not by an order of magnitude any more.

    That’s what made this item amusing: Laurentide -40ºC Windshield Washer Fluid.  Okay, not that amusing yet.  It comes in 3.78L jugs, and you need to buy 208 of them!  So that’s 786.24 L in total, because who doesn’t leave there windshield wipers on continuously?

    On the bright side it’s currently on sale for only $395.99 (which is $104 off the regular price of $499.99).

      If I ever had to go back to the Arctic (gravel highways & dusty towns) or Kootenays (road salt), I’d be all over this.
