Shopping with a Coupon Book

I love Costco coupons. Today I saved $31.50 with the Costco coupon book. 

Everything I bought was something we absolutely needed, except for the M&M candies and the wickedly long pillow in the back. Today was Friday, so I treated myself to a bag of M&M. After working 70+ hours, I wanted something sweet.

Costco Shopping Coupon

I was tempted to buy some Pepsi with the coupon. But I decided not to. I try not to drink soda. Also, I do not have that kind of money. Sodas are bad for you, anyway.

I am happy with Gillette Mach3 disposable shavers. They have the same Gillette Mach3 blades, except the entire unit is disposable. The price on this 10 pack was better than buying 10 packs of identical razors (blade heads only).

I don’t have any work this weekend. So, I’m going to relax and enjoy M&M as I work on my websites.

Good day, everyone.

Shopping at Costco – July 13, 2008

I had two meetings with customers today (Sunday). I was in the neighborhood, and today was the last day I could use a $10.00 coupon for Brita water filters. After picking up Brita Filters, I picked up some food items as well.

Saving Money with Brita Water Filter:
Box of Brita Filters was $32.00 (after a $10.00 coupon). These 10 filters will last well over 1 year. With this, I have a guaranteed supply of good-tasting water. I don’t buy bottled water. I do not have a reverse osmosis water purification system. I believe Brita is the cheapest source of clean and tasty water.

Oh, and there is NO WAY I am buying water from one of those vending machines in front of supermarkets. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t drink that water if you pay me to.

July 3 shopping

July 3, 2008

I bought some booze, cake, ribs, and such to celebrate the 4th of July.

Bamboo cutting boards were $15.99 for a set of two. This is an incredible price. You cannot find this kind of value anywhere. I don’t know why I like bamboo boards. They split in half sometimes. Maybe because the ones I bought were inferior quality. Maybe I don’t know how to maintain bamboo boards. These boards from Costco are thick. I hope these will last.

PS. Later, I found out that I need to use some kind of oil to clean these bamboo boards. Screw oil treatment, I will just buy new boards next time. (*update 2021 – I oil all my cutting boards)

And I bought three bags of Jose’s coffee and syrups.

Shopping at Costco – June 26, 2008

It was a quick shopping trip. I spent 41 minutes in there, in and out. The total bill was $145.55.

An interesting new item was Arizona Iced green tea mix at $5.79. It’s a new item. I have a feeling I will love this tea mix.

So far, I bought about 12 of these short sleeves shirts (some at $15, some at $10. There are different brands). You can’t go wrong with these shirts. They look proper to wear at work. They are very comfortable that I wear them when I play or visit my mother’s house.

Wings of fire is my special treat. I always fight my urge to buy Wings of Fire whenever I go to Costco. I only buy them as a special treat about 2-3 times a year. If I can, I would buy them about 10 times a year.

Shopping – June 16, 2008

Just another day at Costco, nothing special for today’s Costco blog.

5 dozen eggs were $7.39

There was a $15.00 instant rebate on Sonicare brush (from $124.99). I was very lucky because my old brush recently died. My old brush was good for me for 5-7 years. Sonicare tooth-brushes are very good. If you don’t have them, you are missing out on something fantastic.

My typical breakfast

This is my typical breakfast.

All food items are from Costco – Multigrain bread, Kirkland Signature ham, American cheese, and some Olives.

The container that holds olives is also from Costco.

You don’t compare Costco with a dollar store!

Whenever I see people talking about Costco, there are always people saying “I get similar items at dollar stores” or “I get a better price at 99 Cents Only Stores”.

I don’t understand what these people are thinking. You simply cannot Compare Costco with dollar stores.

Obviously, these people never used Kirkland Signature products before. They don’t know about a higher level of life-style we are enjoying because of Costco.

Costco elevates my life-style. It makes me enjoy items that only rich people can afford. I buy jumbo shrimps, imported beers, and organic soy milk, and much more. I would never afford those items if there was no Costco.

Dollar store’s fruits and vegetables are not usable. I feel sorry that some people must eat those to save money. Fruits and Vegetables from Costco are far superior in quality compared to any supermarket product.  

I shop at 99 Cents Only Stores frequently. I like 99 Cents Only Stores too. I buy instant noodles, candies, and miscellaneous items from 99 Cents-only stores. But 99 Cents store will not replace Costco.

You don’t compare Costco with Dollar stores. Some people have no idea what they are missing out.
