    That adds up to an impressive one-third off your groceries. But it also means being a member to shop at the coop: spending almost three hours a month stocking shelves or helping people schlep their groceries home, plus a $25 enrollment fee and a refundable $100 investment. And the possible mockery (or jealousy!) of your friends. Is it worth it?
