I wish they had a Costco closer to the Roswell area.  I hate driving up to the Alpharetta one.  It's not forever out of the way but enough so that I've never purchased a membership.

There is a Costco close to Roswell north of Perimeter Mall at the Abernathy exit.  I go there all the time!

I would call that Costco close to Sandy Springs, not close to Roswell...  I know where they all are, the problem with getting on 400 is that I live about 10 minutes (actual drive time, not counting traffic) away from 400.  On a weekday afternoon, add some local surface street traffic and 400 south traffic - you can see my hesitation.  From downtown Roswell where I live, the north Alpharetta location is actually closer but I never drive over there so it would always be a special trip just to go to Costco.  Certainly doable, just not convenient.

This afternoon at the Cumberland Costco, picked up (among other things) prime sirloin at $5.99 a pound (absolutely the cheapest I've seen prime here) and a pack of baby back ribs (3 racks) for $23... guess what's going on the BGE this weekend...

Costco now has Copper River Salmon, skin-on for $14.99/lb.  I think it was around $10/lb last summer, but it's still well worth it.

Another item I've been buying  the last few months is the pack of 6 heads of Artisan lettuce (tango, oakleaf & gem) for <$4.  BHFM sells 4 heads of the same for >$4 and YDFM has two heads for over $3.  It's a little gritty and definitely needs to be washed, but it keeps much longer than spring mix in the hot weather.

I bought it at Gwinnett last week - I'm guessing they all have it by now.

Cumberland had the copper river salmon on Sunday, and it was AWESOME!  Another item they had was a brand of bufala mozzarella, 3 bulbs for $11-12.  Well worth it.

Well, that sucks! I called saturday and they didn't have it, so i went to Perimeter, which DID have it. I'll stop in cumberland tonight and maybe get another fillet.

The one i got was Sockeye...friend of mother in law said the one she got a few weeks ago at Perimeter was King Copper river....possible?

The one I bought at Gwinnett a week ago specified Copper River.  I asked this past weekend when they had none, was told they blew thru the first order in a few days and were supposed to be getting sockeye in later on in the weekend.

I've been getting the sockeye salmon almost weekly, they usually don't have a whole lot of it, but the price is down to $8.99/lb!

What do y'all do with 1+ to 3 lbs of Salmon?  I'd get the sockeye (and other fish) more frequently from Costco but with just 2 adults in our house that is a LOT of fish.

Cut into portion sizes, vac pack if possible, and freeze
