That said, a trip can be horribly overwhelming if you go in without a plan. Also, you might leave wondering, “Was that really a deal?” Here is a list of what we buy at Costco.

Take Dinner Off Your Employees’ Plates
When people think of The Real Good Life, they think of fresh, delicious, made-from-scratch meals delivered right to their door. They think of the relief that they don’t have to cook dinner and the excitement of the change of pace from their dinner stand-bys. While this is exactly what we think too, there’s more to us.

Vacation Is A State of Mind
Hey guys! I am t-minus days away from vacation and dude, am I ready to check out. This impending trip set me straight to our inspiration for May – Vacation is a state of mind.
Let’s be honest – this week with my toddlers 24/7 will be the furthest thing from relaxing, so I’m setting other vacation goals.
