Costco Shampoo - 8 Months Rotation


I shampoo every day, rarely twice a day.  And I have long hair, way below my shoulders.

I dated my bottle of Kirkland Signature shampoo when I opened it on November 7, 2012.  Today is July 7, 2013.  So, a bottle of Costco shampoo should last you 8 months.

The secret is to use just the amount you need.  I am not saying you should use less than you need.  I use plenty amount of shampoo.  I just don't use more than I need.

Costco Shopping - July 3, 2013


Ah~  I lost my ability to scan my receipt.  I am working on fixing the issue.

What's hard to see is at the bottom.  There is a double bags of Kingsford BBQ Briquets.


I didn't want to buy this huge bag of hamburger buns.  I only needed maximum of 4 buns.  This double bag of 24 buns was only $2.19.  I am likely to throw out more than half of these buns, but I couldn't beat the price and convenience.   I felt bad and guilty for not being thrifty, but what could I do?  I can drive to 99 Cents Only Store.  But, should I spend extra 20 minutes, drive 15 extra miles, so I can produce less trash?  I spent a few minutes thinking about it.. I even called my friend for third person's perspective.  And I decided to produce more trash rather than spending half a gallon of gas driving to 99 Cents Only Store.

I put 12 buns in the freezer right away.  I hope they will be put to use.

Don't you worry about the Chocolate cake.  Nothing will go to waste.  The cake is just for me.  I carefully wrap each pieces and freeze them. They last several month.

I am freezing half of pizza as well.

Ah~~ single life...

First Sign of Christmas 2013


Christmas time is here at Costco.  (July 3, 2013)

I think it will take about 1 more months until we see any more Christmas items other than these ribbons at Costco.  The ribbons came about 3 weeks earlier than I anticipated.  But, I kept my eyes opened.

And "BOOM~!" I found them.

Here we go~~!!

Costco Shopping - June 27, 2013


Thursday after work shopping.   I can't get enough of Costco.

Pickles and corns are for company BBQ tomorrow.

I heard about that book from my local public radio station.   I thought it would be a good reading.

I don't want a motorcickle.
I just want to eat my pickle.

A little 70's parody there... Smile

Costco Shopping - June 26, 2013


Quick shopping Wednesday after work.

I had a craving for some cheese. 

I like this toilet brushes (2 pack for $19) But, I don't know about that extra brush head.  In order to replace the brush head, you must touch the old brush head.  I am NOT touching anywhere close to that brush head.  That's disgusting.

Walnut Craving


(June 18th)

I had a monster craving for walnuts.  I didn't eat walnuts for many years.  And I was thinking about walnuts all day at work.  Craving was so intense that money was no object.

I went to Costco after work and bought a 3 pound bag.   It was $16.99.

Yum~  Good stuff.

Costco Shopping - June 22, 2013


Another early morning Costco shopping on Saturday.

I didn't find anything to buy. Just picked up a pizza. Super cheap with $3.00 off. Good stuff. 

The secret to early morning Costco shopping is that you need to come in really early.  If I go in 30 minutes after they open, it's already busy in there.  Line is still short and nice.

FYI: Costco Gas station opens 6am Mon-Sat, and 7am on Sunday.

Costco Shopping - June 16, 2013


I bought a bamboo bowl from Costco yesterday.  I like the bowl a lot.  It was a great buy.  I found some tiny scratches inside the bowl that I didn't think much of it at first.  Later in the evening I started to think about them scratches little more.  Then, later, I couldn't sleep at night because all I can think was those scratches.  I was miserable. Frown 

So, I went to Costco first thing in the morning to replace my bowl.

I got my bamboo bowl replaced and did some more shopping. 

One of the big advantages of Costco shopping in the morning is fresh flowers.  Every single bunch of flowers were super fresh.  I was impressed.  I bought one bunch for my female friend.

There was $3 instant rebate on BBQ pork jerky.  They taste like cold, left-over baby-back ribs.  They are covered with BBQ sauce, so I don't eat with hands.  I use fork and knife.

Costco Shopping - June 15, 2013 / Bamboo Bowl


I went out early Saturday morning for Costco shopping. I didn't go to Costco last night because I was entertaining a lady friend.

I bought gas first when it was still early in the morning. Then I proceeded to shop.  I took my time looking at everything.  When you take your time, that's when you find good stuff.  I was hoping to find something.

I bought 4 more T-Shirts.  Bought some seasoned sea-weeds, a book about local history, etc..

Today's highlight was 14 Inch bamboo bowls by Island Bamboo.  These bowls are beautiful.  There were different colors such as red and green.  I personally liked natural bamboo color.  I thought $24.99 was a crazy low price.  So, I got one.  This bowl will occasionally come in handy.

Right after Costco shopping, I went to a local farmers market.  I found a bamboo bowl there.  With my naked eyes that bowl looked identical to what I just bought from Costco, no kidding...identical to my eyes.  He wanted $75.00 for just a bowl (no utensils included).  Yikes...

As soon as I got home I went online and looked up 14" Island Bamboo bowl.  I found the exact same bowls at Amazon for $46.00.  They didn't even include utensils.

And, finally, I went to eBay and found somebody selling this exact same product for $54.99 (free shipping).  I often think about buying stuff at Costco and selling them at eBay.  I guess a lot of people are doing just that.

Costco is the best, I tells ya.

Early morning shopping was fun.  This was the second straight weekend I went to Costco early morning.  Could this be my new weekly routine? We'll see...

Have a nice weekend everyone.
