After Thanksgiving Shopping Spree – 2008

I wouldn’t dare going out for Black Friday shopping.  The traffic & waiting game ain’t worth it for me.  Black Friday shopping sounds fun if you have a shopping buddy (girlfriend, wife).

I went out shopping on Saturday, 2 days after Thanksgiving Day. 

1. ROSS

I found medium size (32-34) Jockey underwears.  A box of 3 was $5.99.  So I bought 6 boxes – Basically, I grabbed everything with M sticker on it.  Finally my underwear worry is over (until 2013 ?).

2. Costco
My shopping spree wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Costco.  As a part of my current project  ‘Shopping for a Bed‘, I bought some pillows and a queen size flannel sheet set. I also treated myself with some new towels.

 

And I bought a pair of pants for work, 2 fleece shirts & 1 pair of fleece pants.

I ate a hot-dog in the car – there were a lot of people that I couldn’t find a place to eat outside.

4. Bed Bath and Beyond
I already ordered a queen size comforter from Costco.  I needed to find a duvet cover ASAP. So I headed out to Bed Bath and Beyond. I was looking for anything in flannel.

Then I quickly realized how expensive queen-size flannel duvet covers were ($100.00 minimum), not to mention that they didn’t have much flannels to begin with.  I was discouraged and ready to leave, then I saw this cute little mofo hiding in the back.

Duvet cover

I hit the jackpot. With their usual 20% off coupon this $100.00 duvet cover was only $39.99. This duvet cover is almost perfect.  The color works nicely with the bed sheets I jut bought from Costco.

I was happy with the savings so I bought some kitchen items with the money I saved (picture below – I put egg there to illustrate the size)

And, later that night, I washed all my new towels and sheets.

Good times… 

ZZzzz

Ah~! the glorious Thanksgiving steak sales

I think I still have about 9 pieces of New York steak in the freezer (vacuum packed).

Then I saw this Ralphs ad on T-bone steak… $3.99/lb is just about the best price you will find anywhere.  Ah~! the glorious Thanksgiving steak sales

Ribeye, New York, and T-Bone each has its own unique taste.  I like steaks with bones.  The bone brings more flavor to the meat.  To me, bone is very important in steaks.

Ralphs Vons flier
Vons has New York steak for $3.77/lb – That’s insane

 

I didn’t look at anything else on the fliers.  I have a lot of food already.  Not only that, I went out to shop during my break-time.  I had to go back to work fast.

Oh boy… I have a huge craving for chocolate ice-cream.  I shall go and pick up a pack right now.  I hope they have a sale.  Smile

Costco Shopping November 17, 2008

The major purchase was a Canon Camera.  I bought the camera for somebody.  The camera is not for me.

I’ve always wanted to try Red Bull, but I find them extremely expensive.  They usually go for ove $2 a can.  With a $6.00 coupon, Costco’s Red Bull is about $1.16 a can.  You’ve gotta love Costco.

I bought a bunch of fruits and vegetables for juice. I need to make juice every day before they go bad.  I love juice, so no problem there. 

I bought a bunch of kitchen items today.  I feel good about it.

I will not buy Pita Chips again.  It’s not for me. They are thick and hard.  They don’t have enough flavor for me.

After taking picture, I realized that I left out two items.  My salad and 2 pairs of lounge pants were hiding in the corner.

Costco Coupons saved me $69.00.
After shopping, I ate a hotdog & bought gas.
Then I gave rest of the unused coupons to my co-worker.

Halloween 2008 shopping

I saw a lot of Costco employees in fun costumes today.

I finally found Guinness (beer).  I thought about buying two cases, but I really don’t drink too much.  18 cans will last about 6-10 months.

All fruits and vegetables are for morning juice before going to work. Bread is for breakfast sandwich at work.  I’m having salad for lunch tomorrow.

I went overboard with snacks.. I had a huge craving, kill me Yell.

On the way out, I ate a hot-dog and put gas in my car. 

I am happy I finally found Guinness.
