Kris Jenner, Mother, Loves Costco

If you haven’t noticed, Kris Jenner isn’t like other moms. She’s the kind of mom that stocks her bathroom with black toilet paper, for Chrissake — that’s not what you use if you’re thinking about the comfort of your child’s bottom. (That’d be Charmin.)

But as this great profile from The New York Times Magazine reveals, even the most nontraditional mom on the planet can’t escape that bargain-loving Costco gene that gets activated in parenthood:

 “Costco is a passion,” she told me. “Costco is like a massage.” She wanted to pick out the salmon with the herb butter on her own. She wanted to feel around for the best avocados. She did not trust anyone else to check the date stamp on the oatmeal-raisin cookies to see which were baked most recently. “They have the most amazing dog beds,” she said. “Don’t even get me started.” And the specials! “During the summer, there’ll be a fabulous surfboard. I don’t surf, but I’ve got to buy a surfboard. I mean, that’s how crazy I am.”

Moms: they love a special.*
