I used $2.00 coupon for Irish Spring (original). I always use 2 soaps, Irish Springs (dry) and Dove (moisturized). To me, it is important that I have two different kind of soaps. For example, I want my face to be squicky clean, but I don't want my arms to get too dry. With today's shopping, I don't have to worry about soap for next 2-3 years.
What's in the bag is a lobster tail (small one - $7.20)
I was a little disappointed at the peanuts. They were not as meaty as they were supposed to. They were all in the dark side (color) and kind of dry, as if they were over-roasted. It has a hint of bitterness in taste. I am not really happy with this batch. It will be a long time until I buy these peanuts again.
I bought gas, but I didn't eat a hot dog. I will eat a slice of Take and Bake pizza that I freezed last week.
* I looked carefully. I didn't see any Christmas item.
* Wal*mart shopping (bonus blog)
I usually go to number of other stores after shopping at Costco. I feel the need to share "after Costco" stories to some of the regular visitors.
There was time I never shopped at Wal*mart. I am ashamed of myself that I used to look down upon Wal*mart and Wal*mart shoppers. I was wrong, and I apologize. It was very recently that I started to find joy in Wal*mart shopping. Wal*mart is a fun place. You can save money. But, you must know what you are buying. There are some items you should not buy at Wal*mart. For example, you are highly unlikely to find a HD TV with good picture quality.
I only use alcohol free mouthwash† such as Therabreath. They are $7.50 at Wal*mart. They usually go for $9 - $14 elsewhere. Lysine (vitamin) was a good price. I don't know any other store that sells Tabasco this cheap (under $3 for 5 oz)
I bought only 1 potato - That's a single life for you. 1 potato is all I need for my lobster dinner tomorrow.
What's different at Wal*mart (compared to Costco) is that people at Wal*mart tend to look at my cart (contents). I saw number of female shoppers staring at my cart... like they were looking for Waldo. They shamelessly looked at my cart as I walked by. I was not offended. I found it fascinating if anything.
I bought French bread and Tortilla - which seems typical to most us. But, I wonder how often we can see that outside of The US. I will make tacos Sunday.
Have a nice weekend.
† If you do a quick study, you will realize that using mouthwash contains alcohol doesn't make sense.
