Mitt Romney shops at Costco

It was only four days ago that Vice President Joe Biden stopped by a Washington, D.C. Costco superstore to experience one of America's greatest traditions -- buying in bulk. Not to be outdone, former presidential candidate Mitt Romney -- currently on a whirlwind humanization tour -- was spotted this week at a Costco in La Jolla, California, where he lives and buys gas.

TMZ is (obviously) first with the photos, which show Mitt wearing a cap high on his head and Ann sporting a bright pink scarf. Here is what they bought:

Besides the paper plates, dixie cups, wrapping paper, V8 juice drinks, pretzel snacks, Bisquick and bottled water ... Mitt and his wife Ann also purchased a model car made by the Maisto company (probably a gift for one of his 18 grandkids ... sorry for spoiling Xmas).

Ann has previously expressed her love for warehouse prices. ā€œI always start at Costco,ā€ she told Rachel Ray in October.

Romney just accepted a $60,000 job on Marriott's board of directors (yes, that's only five figures) and has also been seen pumping his own gas and riding Disneyland rollercoasters.
