Oh my God, it was a hot day for Costco Shopping. It was well over 100 degrees at Valencia. Clearly, Costco had a lot less shoppers than usual. It was really hot.
I bought some luxury items today…mm.. anyway here we go.
Not in the picture – a bag of carrots.
Ful backpack – This is a high quality backpack. Costco price was $29.99. I used $5.00 off coupon, so I paid $24.99. I have waited about 2 years for a backpack, so I feel good about this buy. It has a built-in sleeve for a notebook computer. I can use this bag pack for work and/or play.
Costco’s online price is $34.99. I believe $34.99 is still a good price for backpack of this quality. Check it out.
Zigsaw Puzzles – These 500 pieces puzzles were 2 for $17.99. I bought them for Christmas gift (gift receiver to be decided later). Yes, it’s that time of the year.
They had different pictures on the puzzles to choose from (San Francisco, San Diego, etc…). I bought "Noah’s Ark" and "Solvang"
FYI: Click for Solvang on Wiki – I go to Solvang a few times a year. Sometimes I bring my notebook computer to Solvang and work from a coffee shop while my date is out shopping (with my money )
Beef Jerky – I bought 3 double pack (total 6 packages). Costco has $3.50 off coupon right now for 3 items limit. This makes an 8 ounce bag only $4.25. They have expiration date of May 2011. I am going to eat 1 package a month.
Costco has good price on beef jerkies, but I still consider them as luxury items. So I buy quantity when there is coupon. I have will power to make them last 6 months. Mm… good stuff.
Coupons saved $15.50 – I spent about $75.00
PS. I forgot to use my Costco coupons at the checkout. So I had to redeem them at the service desk. It was embarrassing.
*Running out of Coffee
I ran out of Starbucks French Roast (coffee) over a month ago.
I am almost out of Papua New Guinea coffee.
Now all I have left are specialty flavored coffees (chocolate, hazelnut cream, etc…)
I am waiting for Starbucks coffee coupon from Costco.
