On our way back to Lopez from Seattle this weekend, the Fry Family Quartet paid a visit to COSTCO. We did the math and determined that periodic pilgrimages to this wholesale mecca make all kinds of sense for the Fry Lodge budget. Stocking up on household basics, combined with topping up our gas tank, will more than pay for the ferry trip to the mainland. We also know that it’s easy to fall into the traps that await shoppers up and down the aisles. So, we prepared the kids for this and established the Rules of COSTCO. Henry committed these to memory and agreed to recite them on video, which Ruby helped edit (including picking out the soundtrack used in the title and credit sequences).
