This is a definite sign of Christmas.
Costco, August 25, 2008
FYI: Michael’s now have a full scaled display of Christmas items.
This is my club card.
I put three club cards in one.
It contains Vons, Ralphs, & Albertsons. I had this for about 6-8 years now. Vons club card is the oldest one. It’s about 10 years old.
Christmas shopping has officially begun. I bought gifts for 2 nephews today.
I bought 2 RC cars from Costco, they were $49 for a set of two. I paid $34 after $15.00 coupon.
Then I went to Wal*Mart and bought a $100.00 worth of rechargeable batteries and a 15 minutes charger. I believe my nephews will like the batteries. With today’s electronic gadgets, you can never have too much batteries. And 15 minute recharging time is cool.
Now I have about $70.00 allowance for my niece.
Christmas is for the children. I spend all my possible money on the youngsters. My grown up family members udnerstand that I don’t buy gifts for grown ups. We have fun watching the kids opening presents.
For grown ups, I bring cakes and shrimp cocktails from Costco. I can’t wait to Christmas. 4 months will fly by. Oh boy…
Costco doesn’t always carry Guinness in my area. I don’t normally see Guinness at my Costco, but I see them occasionally.
18 cans of Guinness sell for $20.99 at Costco. That’s $1.17 a can. Considering a cup of coffee is $2.00, I think it’s a reasonable price. Still, Guinness is priced two times more than cheaper domestic beers. Guinness is imported beer from Ireland.
I favor expensive beers because I am not a drinker. I rarely drink any alcoholic beverages. I drink maybe 1 can of beer a month.
Also, I don’t like the taste of beer. All beers taste bitter to me. Expensive beers tend to taste less yucky, so when I drink beer, I go for expensive ones.
I bought the beer mug from Bed Bath & Beyond for $5.00. Cold frosty mug makes beer drinking experience more enjoyable.

I never buy blank DVD’s from Costco. Blank DVD’s at Costco don’t have good price. Costco sells spindles of 100 blank Sony DVDs at $29.49 each. I can easily find the exact same Sony DVD’s for $23.00.
This time Costco had "Buy one, get one free" coupon on these Sony DVD’s.
So, they come out under $15.00 each spindle (100 pack). Now that’s a pretty good price on blank DVD’s.
PS. I forgot to use this coupon the other day. I dropped by today when I was on my way to meet somebody.
I have a BS degree in computer. But I don’t know the difference between -R and +R. They all work for me But I always mix -R’s & +R’s just in case.
Today’s treat was the shrimps. I look at these shrimps everytime I go to Costco. I thought I’ve waited long enough to enjoy some.
I also had a hotdog. and I put gas in the car. (3.99/gal)
Oops! I ate this at Costco with a Costco Hotdog
At first, I was going to get a taste or two. I hate myself.
