I LOVE Costco! There, I admit it!

1. The samples

They say food tastes better when it's free, and I agree with that.

2. The clothing line

So Costco has name brand clothing for affordable prices. Listen, I may be watching my budget but I can look good while doing it

3. The book section

There's so many. I could spend months reading through the books they have!

4. Their wide selection

Of what? Of everything. Cause where else are you able to buy tires and bras while grabbing a slice of pizza?

5. The food

Everything is very caloric and probably not healthy but it's delicious AND cheap. A slice of pizza is $1.99. Wow.

6. It's excess of individual items

That's a lot of caprisun (but not too much).

7. It's the first place I would go to in a zombie apocalypse

Remember that scene in Bird box when they go to the supermarket for food and then contemplate staying there? That supermarket for my would be Costco.

8. The recycling service

This should be number one, but nevertheless, it is super super important. Plus, my family can literally save bottles and glasses and cans for weeks and make ~ $15 in Costco money. Saving the Earth AND getting paid for that? Sign me up!

9. You don't see constant advertising

I don't think I've ever seen a Costco commercial. But you know what I do see commercials for? Any other store (no hate, but just something to think about).

10. It has fresh produce

Shop at Costco? Make sure to avoid the foods that make it easier to waste money than save money at everybody's favorite warehouse store.

11. It offers medical services

Though I have never had to use them, I can just imagine how convenient it is for those who do.

12. It's return policy

It's different for every type of item, but all in all they don't screw you over.

I hope these 12 reasons helped you realize why Costco is the greatest store ever. Now, if you will excuse me, I have some toilet paper, a pair of earrings, and a birthday cake to pick up

13 Summer Struggles Only Thick Girls Understand

Chafing. So much chafing.

416147

Summer is a lovely time. A time of cookouts, swimming, and sunny weather. But if you're a " thick girl," summer sometimes brings more unpleasantries than it does for slimmer women. No matter how beautiful and confident you are in your body, it can bring some struggles.

1. The living hell that is shorts-shopping

Step 1: Find the biggest size the store has.

Step 2: (If you can even get those on): Realize your stomach is being squeezed into the top, your butt is falling out of the back and your thighs are having the life squished out of them.

Step 3: Realize why winter isn't so bad.

2. And dealing with them even after finding a pair that "fits"

Nothing like taking a pair of shorts home you remember fitting you okay in the store and then walking for 45 seconds and pulling them out of your butt or crotch 17 times. Truly a magical experience.

3. And every bathing suit you try on shows more skin than you'd planned

Even the most conservative bathing suit turns into cleavage-city and a non-cheeky set of bottoms turns into a thong. I promise, older people glaring at me in my sexual bathing suit, I didn't mean for this to happen!

4. Chafing. So much chafing.

No better feeling than four minutes into wearing short shorts realizing that your inner thighs are literally tearing themselves apart. Body Glide and baby powder are a thick girl's No. 1 necessity.

5. Loving rompers. Rompers not loving you.

Rompers are made with short and skinny girls in mind. Heaven forbid you're not short, and heaven forbid you're not skinny. Rompers are like a mystical article of clothing that, no matter what, always just barely doesn't fit.

6. Imagining wearing a sundress with a strapless bra and just laughing

Of course, not all thick girls are well-endowed in the boob department, but if you are, you understand how hilarious the thought of you wearing a strapless bra truly is.

7. And bralettes are a thing of fantasy

Once again, bralettes are designed for a very specific body type. One that I do not fall into.

8. Feeling like you need to constantly defend yourself for dressing like you want to

There are so many posts and tweets and just general ideals that people have that certain sized women can't wear certain clothing. You shouldn't feel the need to defend yourself for wearing a cute crop top or a bikini, but you will.

9. And always feeling looked at when you're rocking your swimsuit

Yes, I see your judging eyes, and yes, they are making me feel like shit. It doesn't matter how confident you are in your body, people looking at you like you just killed somebody just because you're wearing something typically made for smaller women doesn't make you feel good.

10. Did I mention chafing?

I just felt like something so horrible couldn't just be mentioned once.

11. Online shopping for cute summer outfits and then none of them fitting you correctly

There's always the dreaded "one-size-fits-all" for plus-size women. As if there's just one way to be plus-size. No matter how much they promise online that it'll fit well, it won't.

12. Seeing tiny girls complaining about losing their "summer bodies"

So many tweets talking about choosing food over a summer body. So many profile pictures of traditionally skinny women. I'm not saying that thick girls are the only ones who can complain about their summer bodies, and thick girls do not have a monopoly one not feeling confident in their bodies. But it is hard to see those posts knowing that those women would be glorified in their swimwear while you'd be gawked at.

13. The "you go girl!" comments on your oh-so-brave bikini photos

Compliments are nice, and positive comments while wearing a bikini go a long way. But the dreaded "you go girl" comment just seems so condescending. Just treat me like anyone else you'd see wearing a bikini. I promise, I'd like to feel like that.
