October 2014 Purchases. A few more items.

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Here are a few items that didn't make it to my blog last month (October 2014 purchases)

I recently lost 1 inch on my waist, from 31 inches to 30.  So, I bought 2 Costco belts (1 black, 1 brown) to celebrate my new look.  They were about $18 each.  They are good quality belts, much better than stupid Calvin Klein bents I bought 5 years ago.

Flu Shot

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

I went to Costco on my lunch hour and got a flu shot.  This is my second year getting flu shot from Costco.

The process was little confusing just like the last year. But people at Costco took care of me as usual. I had to fill out the paper work at one window, get on the other line to pay, and wait for the doctor to call my name.

There was 20 minutes waiting time for the doctor to show, so I had a hotdog while waiting.  Yum~!

(boring story) Waiting for Calvin Klein Jeans at Costco

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

* 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?

Happy Sunday - I Love Costco.

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

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 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).

European cookies are back - $3 cheaper

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

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

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

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

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

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.

Chobani Pulls Yogurt Cups, Says No Recall

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

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)

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

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.
