Costco Shopping – April 25, 2018

25th Costco shopping in 2018 – $53.43 (today) / $1504.45 (this year)

What you don’t see is 2 Take and Bake Pizzas at the bottom of the cart. These are for air conditioner installation guys. There will be 4 people working in my house for 2 days. I will give them a complete kiss ass (turning on my “John Charm” if you remember), so they will do a good job. There will be donuts, cold water/soda, burgers, etc…

24th Costco shopping in 2018 – $255.93 (today) / $1451.02 (this year)

I finally bought something interesting. Nest is a smart home thermostat that can communicate with smart phone.  I am about to put in a new central air conditioner (3 ton unit) at my house.  I will also replace existing old heater and duct system. This is a huge purchase (mucho dinero).  This is exciting.  I am taking 2 days off from work to oversee installation process.

I didn’t get my air conditioner from Costco.  I didn’t consider Costco as a possibility because there is no such thing as Costco HVAC Center.  We have Costco Tire Center and Costco Optical Center.  But, when it comes to HVAC, we only have a third party sales person standing by the exit.  Mm… anyway…

23rd Costco shopping in 2018 – $68.56 (today) / $1195.09 (this year)

I cannot use bleach on most of my white clothes.  For example, most decent dress shirts, including Costco shirts, call for non-chlorine bleach.  I’ve been seeing Oxi Clean commercials for many years.  So, I finally decided to give Oxi Clean a chance.  I hope this is the product I was looking for.

Energy shots are on sale, get them now. When on sale, they cost $0.56 each shot  I often get so sleepy, it’s pathetic. $0.56 is super cheap, especially compared to 5-hour Energy ($1.50 each when on sale).

What you don’t see is 40 pack of drinking water on the bottom of the basket.

Costco Shopping – Rotisserie Chicken for Single Living

22nd Costco shopping in 2018 – $22.24 (today) / $1126.53 (this year)

I am happy with my life.  I don’t want to change anything.  But I do realize my blog is boring.  I will try to do something fun… mm… next chance I get…

Costco Rotisserie Chicken for single living

I cannot eat the whole Chicken in a day or two.  So, to maximize my eating pleasure and to stretch my money, this is what I do.

I divide the bird, put them in small containers, and freeze them.  I use them mainly to make lunch salad for work.  But, I may use it for whatever I feel like.

Costco Chicken

Power Green and Costco Chicken for lunch. I enjoy that salad a lot. I use plastic fork so I don’t make clinking sounds at work.

21st Costco shopping in 2018 – $14.97 (today) / $1126.53 (this year)

I think I am done buying spinach at Costco.  I’ve been having bad luck with Costco spinach too often.  I would take these bags home and realize they are already getting old despite long expiration dates.  It’s because It’s too dark at Costco produce room that I cannot visually decide if my bag of spinach is fresh or not.  It is frustrating.  Maybe Costco knows about that and there is a reason for it.  But, they need some more light in the produce cave.  I think I am done buying spinach at Costco.  I will stay with Power Greens, or get spinach from Smart and Final (store in California), where lighting is better.

OR…. Maybe I will develop some kind of technique or lighting system to gain advantage when I look for a bag of spinach in that cave.

For a starter, I shall re-exam my bag of spinach outside of the produce cave where ighting is better.  We’ll see.
