Costco Shopping December 12, 2008

Beer and chocolate are for the Christmas party tomorrow. 

The Box of pens (84 colors) is for my niece.

Samsonite’s wheeled duffel was only $39.99. I am planning to go to Hawaii next year.

I had to buy more chicken soup just in case I catch a cold again.

I liked the pillows so much that I had to buy one more set.

The mattress was vacuum packed and squeezed into a smaller box so it’s easier to ship. The box could fit in the back seat of my car. I borrowed a dolly from work to transport this 98 lb box. But I could have done it without the dolly.

The mattress already had a protective cover on it.

The mattress was fully expanded in 10-20 minutes. I didn’t have to wait 72 hours. And there were no bumps or irregular corners. I smelled chemicals at first, but it was not bad.

** 10 months later (October 15, 2009). I can tell you without a doubt that I love my mattress.  I am very happy with my mattress.

 

After Thanksgiving Shopping Spree – 2008

I wouldn’t dare going out for Black Friday shopping. The traffic & waiting game ain’t worth it for me. Black Friday shopping can be fun if you have a shopping buddy.

I went out shopping on Saturday, 2 days after Thanksgiving Day. 

1. ROSS

I found medium size (32-34) Jockey underwear. A box of 3 was $5.99. So I bought 6 boxes – Basically, I grabbed everything with M sticker on it. Finally, my underwear worry is over (until 2013 ?).

Update – many years later, my underwear size is small. Something must have shrunk.

2. Costco
My shopping spree wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Costco. As a part of my current project ‘Shopping for a Bed’, I bought some pillows and a queen-size flannel sheet set. I also bought some new towels. They feel high class.

And I bought a pair of pants for work, 2 fleece shirts & 1 pair of fleece pants.

I ate a hot-dog in the car – there were so many people that I couldn’t find a place to eat outside.

4. Bed Bath and Beyond

Ah~! the glorious Thanksgiving steak sales

I think I have about 9 pieces of New York steak in the freezer (vacuum packed).

Then I saw this ad on T-Bone steak… $3.99/lb is just about the best price you will find anywhere. Ah~! the glorious Thanksgiving steak sales.

Ribeye, New York, and T-Bone each have their own unique taste. I like steaks with bones. The bone brings more flavor to the meat. To me, bone is very important in steaks.

Ralphs Vons flier
Vons has New York steak for $3.77/lb – That’s insane

 

I didn’t look at anything else on the fliers.  I have a lot of food already.  Not only that, I went out to shop during my break-time.  I had to go back to work fast.

Oh boy… I have a huge craving for chocolate ice-cream.  I shall go and pick up a pack right now.  I hope they have a sale.  Smile

Costco Shopping November 17, 2008

The major purchase was a Canon Camera. I bought the camera for somebody. The camera is not for me.

I’ve always wanted to try Red Bull, but I find them extremely expensive. They usually go for over $2 a can. With a $6.00 coupon, Costco’s Red Bull is about $1.16 a can. You’ve gotta love Costco.

I bought a bunch of fruits and vegetables for my daily juicing.

I bought a bunch of kitchen items today. I feel good about it.

I will not buy Pita Chips again. It’s not for me. They are thick and hard. And they don’t have enough flavor for me.

Costco Coupons saved $69.00.
After shopping, I ate a hotdog & bought gas.

Halloween 2008 shopping

I saw a lot of Costco employees in fun costumes today.

All fruits and vegetables are for morning juice before going to work. Bread is for a breakfast sandwich at work. I’m having salad for lunch tomorrow.

I went overboard with snacks.

On the way out, I ate a hot-dog and put gas in my car. 

Costco Addict’s Closet

Oh boy. I just finished ironing… Took me over an hour.

Look at my closet.. this is how Costco addict’s closet should look like. Everything you see is from Costco (shirts, pants, even hangers). 

AS you can see, I have multiple numbers of identical shirts and pants. 

I hang recently ironed shirts on the right side and hang recently ironed pants on the left side. So the pants and shirts will slowly rotate inward. And, in the middle, a pair of pants and a shirt will meet each other. That’s the pants and shirt I grab in the morning. I never think about mixing and matching pants and shirts.

Day Old Coffee

Sometimes I don’t get to finish all the coffee I brew.

When I have left-over coffee, I don’t trash it. I keep it for the next day.

I keep my old coffee in the refrigerator. The next day, I put in some syrup and drink it cold.

I buy coffee syrups from Costco, but you can purchase coffee syrups only from Jose’s booth events. Jose’s sales team will visit your local Costco a few times a year. We don’t shop at Costco every day, so you may not get to see Jose’s Booth for years. You may have to call your local Costco for Jose’s schedule.
