(boring story) Waiting for Calvin Klein Jeans at Costco

* Warning, extremely boring story... BUT, a lot of my visitors love my boring stories.  So, here we go.

I am waiting for black Calvin Klein jeans at Costco.  I've been waiting for them for a few years now. I want size 30x30.

My waist size goes up and down, so I keep 30, 31, & 32 inch waist jeans.

I've been enjoying my 30" waist for last 3 months.   I think I look the best in 30" waist.  I look like a rock star.  I had 31 inch waist for last 10-15 years.  Did you know most professional body builders have 29" - 31" waist when they compete?

Sometimes I completely lose it and expand to 32".  It takes a few months to get back to 31" - it's not easy to lose 1 inch.

I have about 20 pairs of 32" waist dress pants.  I bought a whole bunch for my old job.  Now I don't work there any more.  Black jeans are fine at my new job.  It is so much efficient to wear jeans at work.  I can wear same pair of jeans for 3 days straight.  And I don't have to iron my pants.

So, below is my jeans breakdown / shopping list.

  • 30 Inches
    • Currently own - 1 black, 2 blue
    • Need to buy - 4 black, 0 blue
  • 31 Inches
    • Currently own - 3 black, 2 blue
    • Need to buy - 2 black (and trash old blacks).
  • 32 Inches
    • Currently own - 1 black, 1 blue
    • Need to buy - 0

 *Since Costco doesn't sell 31" waist jeans, I'll have to get them elsewhere.


Happy Sunday - I Love Costco.

Sunday morning is always calm and glorious.  I enjoy my Sunday morning.

I am having Sunday coffee in my Sunday coffee mug.  Coffee is from Costco, of course. Chocolate cookies and Brie cheese are also from Costco. Smile

I truly enjoy my coffee and snacks from Costco.  They elevate my life-style.  I don't appreciate it often enough that I enjoy such nice products in my everyday life.  I wouldn't know what to do if there was no Costco.  Where else can buy these kind of quality products at low Costco price?  I mean, seriously, I would like to know.

When I used to live in the apartment, I would make my Sunday coffee and walk outside.  And I would say good morning to some of my neighbors.  I miss that story-book moments.  I miss that human interactions.

Of course, being in my own house is amazing.

Happy Sunday everyone. Take care... keep in touch.


Havzee.com - Please check it out. He Needs Backers

Please check this out - this project is started by my regular visitor.

### Read below ###

..I wanted to let you know about a website I am working on. It is called www.havzee.com and basically the idea is for single people (like me) to be able to connect with other people to split big purchases at costco (ie 36 rolls of toilet paper, 18 rolls of papertowels, etc).

If you have any desire to check it out, I am doing a kickstarter campaign. I am looking to hire someone to work on some of the more technical parts of the build for the website.

European cookies are back - $3 cheaper

European cookies are back at Costco

These are the cookies that I call "Christmas Cookies", because Costco usually sell them during Christmas season. 

Anyway, get this... they are $9.49 a can, $3.00 cheaper than 2 months ago.

I have 3 fresh cans of these cookies.  I am tempted to take them back for $9.00 refund.

Costco Executive Membership (2%) Rebate Check

This is my Costco executive card 2% rebate check this year. 
$104.99 means I spent $5,249.50 at Costco last year.

Basic membership is $55.00/year
Executive membership is $110/year.

So, I need to receive $55.00 rebate check to cover my executive membership fee.  With this rebate check, I am getting paid $49.99 to be an executive member.

But, this is not the only check I will receive this year.  There is Costco/AmEx back check coming up.  I have about $270.00 there.


Costco employee who didn't care

I picked up a box of yogurt today at Costco.  I got to the check out line and put the yogurts on the belt.  A female Costco employee picked up my box of yogurt and found the bar code on the bottom of the box.

Then she turned my yogurt box upside down and put it on my shopping cart so her partner would scan it.  I couldn't believe what I was seeing.   I was pretty pissed.

"Yogurt should not be upside down.  Thank you.  Sorry.."  I said.

She turned my yogurts right side up as we exchanged fake smiles.

I thought it was pretty messed up.  She's not stupid.  She knew what she was doing.  Basically she didn't care.  This was the first time in many years walking out from Costco feeling mis-treated.  It was a little thing she did that ruined my perfect image about Costco.

I still have a sour taste about today's experience. 

I don't think she will work at Costco for too long, not with that kind of rotten attitude.

You don't flip a man's yogurt cup.  You just don't.   If you do, we will whine about it.

Chobani Pulls Yogurt Cups, Says No Recall

FYI: Costco sells Chobani yougurts

###

Greek-style yogurt maker Chobani has reportedly asked various grocery retailers in the U.S. to pull its yogurt cups from shelves over “isolated quality concerns” stemming from customer reports of foul-smelling, sour yogurt, which some customers have alleged sickened them.

Harvest Wreath Recall (letter)

Harvest Wreath is being recalled.

I bought it last month (July 30, 2013 Costco Shopping), and I haven't opened the package yet.  I would like to keep it, but I don't know anything about mold and how serious it is.  So I shall bring it back.

No more clipping coupons - It is official

It's official, this answers our question.

(officially) We do not have to clip coupons anymore.  You can just show your coupon books without clipping them.  Additionally, you don't have to have coupon book with you.  If you have a smart phone, you can show coupons from your mobile app.  Your cashier will honor the coupon you show on your mobile app.

* At this point, I will not be surprised if a lot of Costco warehouses apply coupon discounts to every shoppers automatically, without asking for coupons.

Until this point, officially, we were supposed to clip coupons.  That's why they say ""No more clipping coupons"


Civic Duty

I served jury duty today.

I brought my reading material to pass time.

It was a drunk drive case.  I know three close friends who escaped death after getting hit by drunk drivers (2 separate accidents).  I got dismissed.
