First Hint of Christmas at Costco, 2018

I was little disappointed that it didn’t scream “CHRISTMAS”

Ribbons were at Costco on August 1st, 2018, just as I expected.  But, they didn’t have any obvious Christmas designs such as snow flakes or Santa.  Still, these ribbons are hinting us to get ready for Christmas.

Raffle & Review: Warrior Mix by Bee Free

Enter to win

Enter for free 3 bags Warrior Mix, now available at Costco.

Warrior Mix is granola mix – and they are absolutely amazing.  First of all, it’s the best tasting granola mix that I know of.  Additionally they are; gluten free, paleo friendly, dairy free, grain free, preservative free, soy free, GMO free, and contains no refined sugar.

Our friends at Bee Free will send 3 bags of Warrior Mix to a raffle winner (1 x 17oz,  2 x 9oz) .  Winner will be drawn on September 1, 2018.

Warrior Mix, Bee FreeWarrior Mix is very tasty, and you can taste goodness of the ingredients. It has sweet and nutty taste. Once you start eating it’s hard to stop. One day, a friend came over for dinner.  I spent 2 hours in the kitchen that day.  As she settled down at my house, I gave her a sample taste of Warrior MIx so she would give me a quick review.  She gave me thumbs up, and ate almost the entire bag.  She was so full that she barely touched the special dinner I made.  I was not happy about the dinner, but was happy for Bee Free. They are really tasty.

There is no particular shape for these granola.  They have basic “chunky” shape, but they will get broken apart.  So, you can eat them like cookies, add to  cup of yogurt, or add milk and eat like cereal. I grab a handful of loose granola like nuts and pop ’em in my mouth.

Check out the video below.  Mother’s love is put in to her products.

Bee Free products are available at Costco.

Costco Shopping – July 27, 2018

35th Costco shopping in 2018 – $41.68 (today) / $2708.52 (this year)

I looked everywhere, but I didn’t see any sign of Christmas at Costco today.  But Christmas is coming to Costco very soon, I promise.

I really like Kirkland Signature Basil Pesto, so I bought one more jar while it was still on sale. They freeze well. I guess they will last well over a year in freezer.  If you take it out of freezer they quickly become soft that you can scoop it out while pasta is getting ready.

I shall always keep this Basil Pesto along with pasta at home.

I bought Jose’s Chocolate Raspberry coffee to get ready for Christmas. I will enjoy this coffee on Thanksgiving day when I bake turkey, and when I watch Polar Express on Christmas Eve.

2 dozen roses were $13.99.  I couldn’t think of a reason NOT to buy them.

Costco Shopping – July 22, 2018, Organic Cherries

34th Costco shopping in 2018 – $76.22 (today) / $2666.84 (this year)

I went out for Sunday morning Costco shopping.

Sunday morning Costco shopping is special to me.  I have to make a special plan and get up earlier than usual. It’s a hassle because I want to enjoy lazy Sunday morning.  But, it’s fun once I’m out and about.

Costco is crazy busy on Sunday, so I arrived there exactly at 10 AM and left before 10:30AM.  There was no fooling around.  I just focused on my shopping list.  As a shopping list, I use Costco APP’s “Lists” feature.

Cherries are amazing good. I have tried both organic and non-organic cherries from Costco.  Organic cherries are much better (tastier) than non-organic cherries.  I will only buy organic cherries from now on.  Before Costco, I used to buy Cherries from local farmers market.  Costco’s organic cherries are as good as those from farmers market, except I get more at Costco.

I went to Walmart after Costco.  I came home at exactly 11am.

Costco Shopping – July 13, 2018

32nd Costco shopping in 2018 – $35.43 (today) / $2561.69 (this year)

I made a quick stop at Costco Friday after work.  I didn’t buy anything exciting.  I didn’t see my favorite sample lady today.  I didn’t see my little buddy at optical department.

I picked up two dozen roses.  They were only $13.99.

I almost walked out… then I went back for a hot dog.

Garage Sale – New Saturday Coffee Mug

I never miss going to garage sales Saturday morning.  Garage sales are fun.

Sometimes I make spectacular finds. I didn’t find anything fancy today. I spent about $3.  But it was still fun.

Last year I bought a Muffin book for ¢25. I’ve been looking for a muffin pan since then.  Today, I finally found a clean muffin pan for ¢25.  I could have bought a brand new muffin pan, of course.  But, that’s not the point. It’s fun because I found it after a long search.

I will make muffins now.

I didn’t find anything at the next house. They had nothing but kid’s stuff.  As I quickly turned and started to walk away, I noticed a small lemonade table on the side.  A pair of very young boy and a girl were sitting quietly with a pitcher of lemonade. There were a lot of people, but nobody cared for lemonade (as usual).  I don’t care for lemonade.  In fact, I avoid water as part of my garage sales routine.

Anyway, the kids looked sad and discouraged.  “There will be more people coming.. it’s gonna get hotter soon”, the mother wiped little girl’s tears.

I bought the dang lemonade for ¢50.

I bought a box of jigsaw puzzles for my coworker (¢50).  I know the tallest guy at my work. He must be close to 7 foot tall.  He likes jigsaw puzzles.  A few months ago, he came to work on a wheelchair.  He said he had to wait and see if he could ever walk again.  He stopped coming to work for about a month.. then he came back.  He can now walk again with a cane.

At the last garage sale of the day, I found a coffee mug from Denny’s restaurant. It was only ¢25, so I grabbed it.  I continued looking around but couldn’t find anything.  When I was done and ready to pay, she said “You can have the mug.  You don’t have to pay.” with a smile.

I know why she didn’t take my money.  It’s because I looked pathetic. I mean, really (look pathetic).  When I go to garage sales, I make sure to wear faded clothes and dirty shoes.  No European knee high socks are allowed…. check out the picture below.

This Denny’s coffee mug became my new Saturday coffee mug. I will enjoy this mug for many years. They are being sold on eBay at $18+ (completed sales).

I took below picture 3 weeks ago at Denny’s the night I drove out to see The Milky Way Galaxy.  On my way back home, I stopped by at Denny’s around midnight for food and restroom.  Their coffee mug made me feel sentimental and nostalgic. So I took a picture of it to remember by.  Now I have the mug. 🙂

Talk to you later.

Costco Shopping – Brushed Twill Pants

30th Costco shopping in 2018 – $223.25 (today) / $2516.78 (this year)

Late post:

I bought 12 pairs of Kirkland Signature Brushed Twill Pants a few months ago. I rarely wear jeans at work anymore, mainly because I got older.  I am too old to wear neon colored Nike like my coworkers.  I am too old to carry a Jansport backpack like my coworkers.  There is nothing wrong with jeans, sneakers, and backpacks.  If you are in your 50’s and 60’s and still able to rock teen fashion, more power to you.  As for me, I look better with Italian shoes and leather briefcase.

These brushed twill pants are pretty OK. I don’t have to iron these pants. I’ve been wearing them daily to work.

FYI: English Laundry’s 5 pocket pants are much better. I have a pair, and they are the best.
