Kris Jenner is just like us?

Either the Keeping Up with the Kardashians momager has some sort of integrated marketing deal with Costco or she likes buying toilet paper in bulk like the next suburban parent.

The New York Times Magazine followed Jenner around for the day and after journalist Taffy Brodesser-Akner became acquainted with the reality star's lingo ("Everything is fabulous or amazing or incredible or cute or epic or a nightmare; everything she is even remotely interested in is something she is obsessed with"), she got an inside look into her everyday perks.

As the article points out, anyone could make a Costco run for Jenner, but she finds it "sacred" and also sees it as an opportunity for cameras to follow her around as she "picks up salmon with herb butter on her own." Jenner also "did not trust anyone else to check the date stamp on the oatmeal-raisin cookies to see which were baked most recently."

"Costco is a passion," she admits. "Costco is like a massage."

The 59-year-old mother-of-six also has her favorite items at the membership-only warehouse club. "They have the most amazing dog beds," she muses. When asked about the specials, Jenner adds, "Don't even get me started."

"During the summer, there'll be a fabulous surfboard," she says of the store. "I don't surf, but I've got to buy a surfboard. I mean, that's how crazy I am."

Unfortunately, even a trip to Costco with Jenner is an exclusive event. The Times reporter was not granted access to come along with her to the store as Costco only allowed four members from the production team to shop and shoot scenes.

When Brodesser-Akner insists she has her own Costco card, a producer tells her, "No offense, but we can't have any association with you there."

It appears the red carpet is even rolled out at grocery stores when you're part of the Kardashian-Jenner crew!
