Costco, Where is Christmas?

Sep
14

I remember we used to have full blown Christmas in September at Costco.

I don't see any Christmas at Costco this year so far (except for the ribbons).  We only have 15 weeks left to year end.  I would like to see some Christmas stuff already.

*I saw some cookies that reminded us Christmas.

Bracelets

Sep

Big picture is located here

Here are some of the (chain) bracelets I bought at garage sales. I am finally putting them on eBay one by one. I need more time to get better at eBay.

When I say "I enjoy garage sales" people don't seem to understand what it's about.  Anyway, it takes certain skills to be good at garage sales.  I am obsessed about building that skill.

They are all silver.  One is gold filled. One is gold over silver (with Onyx).

The one on top - I don't know what kind of gemstone it is, but I had to buy it.  I couldn't stop looking at it.  I still look at it.

Sorry, I've been lazy - Update

Sep
08

Hi, how are you?  Time flies.

Sorry, I've been lazy.  I am doing very good. 

I've been enjoying garage sales a lot.  I have a lot of stuff (including silver jewelry) that I need to start selling.  I have dedicated 1 bedroom for garage sale and eBay selling.

At one garage sale, I bought a pair of silver Tiffany earings for $60.  I knew I could sell them for $150.00.  Indeed, they are being sold on eBay for $150. But all sellers are located outside of The US.  I learned that eBay prohibits sales of Tiffany products by US sellers. That sucks.   If you are my long time visitor who can trust me AND would like a pair of Tiffany earings, contact me.  I will sell it to you for $120.  (free shipping).

My work is going well.  I enjoy my house. I am healthy.

I've been saving money to buy a (used) car, but lately I've been thinking about investnig that money in real estate, flipping houses. It sounds exciting to me to risk it all.  Since California is super expensive, I'll have to invest somewhere cheaper.  Anyway, it's fun to think about it. 

I haven't seen much Christmas stuff at Costco.  It's September already.  There should be Rudolph, Santa, and... stuff like that.   But, I only see the same ribbons for over a month.  We have less than 4 months left for holiday season to end.  But I don't see Christmas signs anywhere.  Hm...

Thanksgiving is 11 weeks away.  I am excited about massive eating I will enjoy.  There will be some heavy duty Costco shopping before that.  I will buy fancy snacks, chocolate, wine, shrimps, exotic cheese, turkey (of course), etc, etc...  God bless America.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I will keep in touch.

Enjoy Costco shopping.

HAs anyone ordered a gas Range from Costco.

Aug
20
Body: 

Hi:

 I purchased a LG Gas Range from Costco.com. They say it takes 2-3 weeks for it to be delivered .I wondered if that time  period is correct ( it seems like a very long time, and I live in Ohio  ) . Also what company delivers the item ? , and does ayone know if and when Costco.com send you a tracking number for the item. ? It has been 5 days now since I ordered and I have received no communication from them other then the thank you for your purchase confirmation email. Thanks in advance for your answers. It seems odd that I can find out nothing on the internet about this question.

First Sign of Christmas 2016 - July 29

Jul
29

Hey, it's here.

For last several years (perhaps over 10 years?) the first sign of Christmas at Costco was these Christmas ribbons.   I always see them in late July.  Today, July 29th, at my Costco shopping, I expected to see those Christmas ribbons, and I there they were.

I was excited to see those ribbons  You know how much I love Christmas. To me, it's fun and exciting when I see the first sign of Christmas.  It so happens that Costco is the store that officially releases Christmas products the earliest.  This adds to my mental association between Costco and festive feeling.  When I think about Christmas, I think about Costco. My Christmas will not be the same without Costco.

We still have long Summer months left.  But, seeing these ribbons changes my internal energy.  Things wil be different now that Costco has officially hinted Christmas 2016.

We will have good time this Winter.  And, soon, 2016 will be a history.  So, now is time to show love to my friends and family before I look back with regret.

Enjoy~!!

LED Tubes at Costco - Died after 11 months

Jul
12

OMG. One of my LED Tubes died after 11 months.  It's supposed to last 45 years.  It didn't even make 1 year.  I am disappointed. 

I took it back the next day (Costco handled it no problem) - and I bought the same pair as a replacement.  I hope they last 45 years as they promise.  This was a little hassle (waste of my time), but I was glad I bought them from Costco.  Imagine if I bought them from elsewhere, or online store, etc..  then I'll have to package it and ship them back???  I avoided a major hassle because I shopped at Costco.  

Buying a defective item is something you cannot avoid. It's nobody's fault.

Below is my blog from 11 months ago - about the light tube.

 

#####

The new technology is here.  And it's available at Costco.  This is quickly becoming an old news.  But, for now, I am excited about this new technology.

You can now replace 4 feet florescent tubes with LEDs without modifying internal wiring of the fixture.  You simply replace the tubes.  They are expensive, but not by much.  I replaced 4 tubes in the kitchen ceiling, and I am happy about how they perform.  They save electricity.  They will last 45 years.  So, I wrote down the installation date on the tubes.  If they stop working after only 44 years, I will take them back for a refund.

Technical Info

  • Uses 17 Watts (instead of normal 40 Watts)
  • Instant on
  • No humming (buzzing) noise.
  • Cool white 4100k color
  • 50,000 run hours (45 years in normal use)

Below: "11-04" written by the prior home owner. 
This irritates me.  Did he mean November 2004? or April 2011 ?

Costco whole combo pizza

Jul
10
Body: 

Costco whole combo pizza shows on top of take out window 4500 calories in 8 slices.
 Any cheese lovers out there willing to take a guess how many calories in a no cheese whole combo pizza either per slice or in total?

I ordered mine with no cheese, ate 2 slices, freezer bagged 6 and 5 days later still have 4 slices in freezer.

I liked it,  no cheese at all.

thanks
