Costco Member-Only Savings, June 22, 2022 – July 24, 2022.
Savings are available only to current Costco members.
Finally, solar-powered LED string light.
Check this out! These are the real-deal Costco T-shirts and hoodies with official Kirkland Signature logos. They also have jogging pants for men and women. They are available now, while supplies last.
I ordered one white t-shirt with the Kirkland Signature logo. I shall inspect it first and purchase 1 – 2 more. If they fit perfectly, I may purchase a lot more, but that’s a long shot. The logo shirt is absolutely adorable. I shall wear it every time I go to Costco. In the past, I was tempted to purchase unofficial Costco apparel. I am glad they are now available at Costco.
Ideally, I should own 20 of these logo t-shirts so I can wear them every day as I work from home. But I cannot wear these shirts at home because they are a relaxed fit. The relaxed fit means a lot of access fabric and wicked huge armholes. Supima cotton is soft and nice. But, they can be too soft (stretchy) for me, especially when they are a relaxed fit.
I have purchased a number of Supima cotton t-shirts at Costco. I cannot wear them at home because they are too loose, stretchy, and have big armholes.
*Update: I tried the logo t-shirt and I like it. The logo t-shirt fits me just OK. It’s a slightly relaxed fit, but not by a lot. With that, the undershirts fit me better (perfectly) and they feel better for my body shape. Look at the below picture for my body shape.
I have a problem with short sleeves shirts with big sleeves. Crucially, your t-shirt should absorb your armpit sweat by wedging into your armpits. Large armholes cannot do that job. So, your pits will stay sweaty all day, leaving you prone to body odor. Personally, though, the loose fabric around my arms and the pits feels unbearable. Also, large sleeves are not very attractive.
I like Costco’s white undershirt. They have perfect sleeves to wear at home. I always fold the sleeves at the seams to make them 1 inch shorter. I currently own 11 of them, and I just ordered a 6 pack along with the logo shirt. I work from home, so if I put on a white shirt in the morning it will stay on me for 24 hours. For the past 14 years or longer, I’ve been wearing these white shirts at home and in bed. Fitting t-shirts stay better while I sleep. Loose-fit t-shirts move too much. They ride up more easily, and they just feel too loose, which affects my sleep.
If you are young, you can wear a white t-shirt when you go out, like James Dean. It’s a freakin’ awesome look. But they are not a good look for grown men like me; unless you work construction, hospice, or if your last name is Clean.
My friend told me that my scrambled eggs smelled funny. She followed up by telling me that my cooking oil must be rancid and yucky. But, I know my eggs. I make great scrambled eggs.
“Rancid? get out of here! Cooking oils never go bad. People dig up old cooking oils from the Pyramid and cook stuff… sausages, and shit,” I said jokingly, but with confidence. I quickly dismissed her.
I keep two kinds of cooking oils in the kitchen and they smelled just fine. They smelled just like what I’m used to all my life.
But she disagreed. She made a sour face as she smelled one of my cooking oils. She told me to check the expiration date on my cooking oils. “Expiration date? What expiration date?” I frowned as I looked at the jugs.
Oh my God! My oils have expired ages ago! My oils are rancid! So… they aren’t supposed to smell like that? I was blown away and embarrassed. Holy cow…
I buy cooking oils from Costco. And they would last several years. I never checked the expiration date on cooking oil. I thought they didn’t even have an expiration date.
I bought the double jugs of canola oil from Costco on August 7, 2018. They had an expiration date of June 2019. There was no chance I was going to finish those twin monsters in 11 months.
The next day, I went to Walmart and picked up some small bottles of cooking oils. I transferred them into the dispensers. This time, I wrote down the expiration dates in bold letters.
I was poor all my life. It’s been 10 years since I became a homeowner. It’s been 9 years since I got a new job and improved my financial status. But, I cannot suddenly become a person of high class overnight. I’ve been telling you guys that my root is humble. This is one example.
I fried eggs multiple times using the new oils. But, I couldn’t really notice the difference. They all tasted the same. They are all good. Hahaha…
Quick. I have to tell you this before the sale ends on May 2, 2022. ($5 off)
These pants may be one of the best pants I have seen. They fit modern style in slim straight. They are a little stretchy (I like). They come in gray, brown, and green. I bought 3 pairs of each color.
Important: Costco may bring back these pants in the future. The next batch may have the same product number, same name, and the same description. BUT.. the pants may be different. They may use different materials, or they may use a different manufacturer. That’s why you often hear people saying “They are not what they used to be”
So, I can only review these pants for April 2022. And they are fantastic.
Air fry, bake, & dehydrate
I spent 2 weeks with a Gourmia Air Fryer, GAF798 (Costco item #5232432). I focused on frying fish and chips. But it does more than frying. It can bake and dehydrate as well. 2 weeks was not enough time to learn about a new kitchen appliance. I shall spend more time with it. So far, this opened a door to a new world. I didn’t know there were so many frozen fish, fries, and such… that I can fry on my own.
I will definitely use this air fryer often for onion rings, fish, and fries. My only problem is that I need to reframe myself from using it too often.
Gourmia’s air fryers are available at Costco. They are currently on sale for $39.95 in-store until April 10, 2022. The online price is $49.99 (shipping & handling included), also through April 10. Costco’s regular price is still the best you can find.
Below is a quick video – from unboxing to trying out some recipes. I ate a lot.
