Costco Coupons - April 13 - May 3, 2009

Check your mailbox.  I hope you got these as well.

Oh boy... I see a lot of things to buy.  I may have to spend a lot of money next week.

My shopping list from this coupon:

  • Candies (I am debating which one to get)
  • Trash bags
  • Ritz crackers
  • Hebrew National Kosher Beef Franks
  • Orange chicken
  • Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers Variety Pack
  • Valley Fine Foods Pasta Prima Chicken & Mozzarella Ravioli
  • Apache 3'x5' Commercial Grade Scraper Mat
  • Kirkland Signature Chicken Alfredo with Penne Pasta
  • Vitamin B-12 (Good timing - I was running out of them) 

* I am looking at this tiny Olympus Camera (FE-370) for $99.99 after $30.00 off.  I should not buy this camera, but it's very tempting.  The camera is very cute.

1 1/2 Slices of Bread For Breakfast

I eat 1 1/2 slices of bread for breakfast.

1 slice is too little.  2 slices are too much.

So, I make sandwich with 1.5 slices of bread & 3 slices of ham.
When I told my friends about it, they seemed puzzled about how I manage to distribute & stack 1.5 pieces of bread in one sandwich.

It's very simple.  Check it out.

Breakfast Sandwich

Bread and Ham from Costco, of course

Costco Shopping - March 19, 2009

* Today's Costco shopping: 12th time this year, 2nd time this month 

I am always busy.  I mean super busy...

Right after work, I had a meeting with my customers at Agoura Hills.  We had a nice talk for 1 hour.  The event was booked and they cut the check on the spot.  When I meet customers, I have a high ratio of closing the deal. Sometimes I book events without meeting them.  Sometimes customers send deposits from Japan, Canada, New York....

After the meeting, I had a very short time to shop at Costco in Westlake Village.  I arrived there 8:15pm, 15 minutes before they close the entrance.

I went through my shopping list very fast.  I bought 2 bags of Starbucks Coffee.  I am going to give one bag to my neighbor. 

You see, I enjoy giving things to my neighbors.  I love watching people feeling happy because of what I do for them.

I spent less than $70.00 today (used 3 coupons).

I came home around 9pm and I fixed a quick dinner.

Costco Shopping - March 10, 2009 - $100.32

* Today's Costco shopping: 11th time this year, 1st time this month 

Today, I went to Costco on my lunch time. It took me exactly 1 hour and 2 minutes to go to Costco, shop, get gas, and come back to work.

I am beginning to like lunch time shopping.  It gives me luxury of free time after work. 

I think I'm going to do laundry on lunch time as well.  Of course, I cannot do laundry in 1 hour.  So, I'll have to take 90 minutes lunch.  I'm gonna try that tomorrow.

I bought 2 more short sleeves shirts.  I have about a dozen of these shirts now.  I love them.

I am loving that Stir Fry Vegetables.

Anyway, I spent $100.32.  (Shopping $74.83, gas $25.49)

Westlake Village Costco

* Today's Costco shopping: 11th time this year, 1st time this month

I was looking for The Chocolates of the World and the new Kirkland Signature's Primium Nissin Cup Noodles (not to be confused with regular Cup Noodles they usually sell).  But I couldn't find any. Frown

So I ate a hot-dog and came back home. 


Costco in Westlake Village, CA

Costco Shopper Booted After 14th Free Cracker

Here is a funny & interesting story.

Costco management took the unprecedented step of removing a shopper from its Oakland, California store for abusing its free sample program. Bill Wentworth of San Jose, CA was forcibly ushered to the exit after management spotted him eating a 14th lobster dip cracker.
Wentworth utilized crude props to dupe unsuspecting Costco workers, such as fake beards, mirrored sunglasses, and wheelchairs. He also spoke to workers using fake foreign accents....

The story doesn't stop there.
More embarrassing story continues at  GlossyNews Article

* How do they know he had 14 crackers, not 13 or 15?  Does that mean Costco is actively watching free sample tables?

Costco Shopping - February 28, under $100 again

* Today's Costco shopping: 10th time this year, 4th time this month

Again, I managed to keep it under $100.00.

This is the second time I'm buying Wings of Fire & M&M in one month.  I am going crazy on these bad food.  This is not good.  I should make them last more than 2 month.

My last jumbo shrimps lasted me almost 5 months.  They are special treat.  Sometimes I chop them up in pasta.

My craving for chocolate is not going away. I need to watch my chocolate intake.  My waist is definitely wider than 6 months ago.  I know I will lose the size.  Losing size is very difficult, but I just do it anyway.  It's either working hard to move up or stay at the bottom.  That's life.

Anyway, I spent under $100.00

Get this - I spent only $25.00 on Gas in February.  And my gas tank is almost full right now.
