Sam's Club Is Completely Better Then CostCo

I thought this was a wholesale store not Saturday night at the club.

Almost everyone can relate to having to be dragged out of the house as a kid and spend their whole day on a ride along with their parents while they run a plethora of errands which take about an eternity. Having to sit in a car and go from one store to the next is always boring and the only thing keeping us kids from pure insanity on these trips is getting an incentive like candy or food. Besides that going to the store as a child was just one big waste of time.

There are few places that aren’t nearly as bad and sometimes even fun to go to. Costco is definitely one of those places. You walk into this exclusive club and grab a shopping cart and get to explore all the cool stuff, grab some free food samples, lay on the mattresses they are trying to sell,(if you could reach them) and at the very end you get to stand in line and get a big slice of pizza, with a churro and icee and your parents will gladly pay for it every time because everything there is so cheap!

Costco is just a dream come true in the big picture. In the little picture not so much. Costco can be harsh. If you don’t immediately pull out your card and have it ready when you go in then you will not be let into the store at all whatsoever.

Even if you forget your card they make you stand outside while they get someone to make sure that you will be allowed in, I thought this was a wholesale store not Saturday night at the club.

Once you finally get in the place it's always packed. Like so packed that it is hard to look at anything with any peace and the aisles are always filled with people you have to sometimes move people out of the way just to get what you need. The workers aren’t super friendly. They are really all business, especially the cashiers, they have very little pity if you don’t have your card they will redirect you out of line quickly since the place is always so packed.

The wait for food can be pretty long as well, especially waiting in line just to order. By the time you have your delicious food it is nearly impossible to find an open table for yourself let alone your whole family. Although we know there are some minor problems we can look past them because Costco is just the best right?


There is a place with all the same things with no problems at all: Sam’s Club. When you walk into Sam’s Club you don’t even need a card you can just walk in, no hassle at all. Since everyone loves Costco so much and neglect to try anything new, Sam’s club is always so open and I have never gone once where it was packed, especially not compared to Costco. A lot of the stuff is out to use like cool chairs, couches, and other little things and the workers really don’t mind if you do play with them.

The mattress that are six feet high in Costco are just easily pulled out at Sam’s Club, which is very convenient and accessible. There are free samples just like Costco and the workers are very friendly. There are never any long lines and you can just pull up your card info on your phone and they even have a self checkout to make things even quicker.

The food is almost the exact same, except instead of instead of one big slice of pizza, at most Sam’s Clubs you get two. The prices are almost the exact same and both have the exact same stuff and it’s not too crazy to find things even cheaper at Sam’s club than Costco. As for the price for a membership, Costco is $60 annually and at Sam’s club it is only $45. And with that $45 membership you also get to add another free member so it’s really only $22.50 per person for a membership which easily pays for itself. Even without a membership you can still walk in and purchase some pizza and anything else you would like from their food kitchen. Sam’s club is everything Costco is…. But better.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
