* Not an official bucket endorsed by Costco * Price Club was founded in 1976 and Costco was founded in 1983. Both merged in 1993. Costco has grown into 847 warehouses with 304,000 employees and 223 billion in revenue worldwide. I visited my brother a few years back. He lives near Costco's headquarters so he took me over to their building. Nothing special happened and the building was kind of unimpressive which is good to keep down prices! My final project for marketing class consisted of a paper / presentation about a topic of my choice. Along with my partner, we chose the wholesale club business which was a fairly new concept in 1992. For some reason, I still find the history of wholesale clubs interesting. Here's one more Costco story. I started my candy distribution business in San Diego which was the same place Price Club started 20 years before me. I used to buy candy from this one candy distributor where the owner was about 50 years older than me. One of the owner's family members once told me that this owner refused to merge their candy distribution company with startup Price Club when offered the chance. Hindsight is 20/20 and everyone on Earth has made the wrong decision multiple times. In fact, merging might have been dangerous because Price Club lost 750K in year one (about $4 million today). I hope you enjoy my Costco bucket!

This bucket is equally about both father and son. There are so many interviews out there that this bucket only scratches the surface.

The way I look at it, each vacuum will double in lifespan because you are using each 50% less. Thank me for saving your back because you will no longer need to lug a vacuum upstairs and downstairs. In my opinion, cordless vacuums are annoying due to their low power. I love my shop vacuum for cleaning my car carpets so after researching for a while, I came across the mini shop vacuum.

Video Game History
My first experience with video games was when a family member gave us their old Odyssey video game system. As a small kid, I was fond of this system for a little while until I became bored. You would take a piece of plastic with drawings on them and stick it to your TV set using static electricity. The user would control a bright dot around the screen which would show through the transparent plastic drawings. There was soccer, baseball, haunted house, racing, etc. When the Atari 2600 came out, ours was Sears private label, I guess this game was sold in a garage sale. Video game history bucket concentrates on 1970s and 1980s.
