26th Costco shopping in 2018 – $26.47 (today) / $1530.92 (this year)

Sunday morning is my favorite time of the week.  I like to start Sunday morning with a load of white laundry.  Sound and smell of laundry (bleach) make my house feel cozy and homey.  It’s fun to iron a few shirts and pants, too.

I also enjoy Sunday morning Costco shopping once in a while, especially when I need car wash.  My goal is to come back home before noon, so I can start my laundry.  Today, I went for a glorious Sunday morning Costco shopping.

First, I did my car wash.  Then I pulled up to a far empty corner of the parking lot to wipe down my car.  There were already several folks doing the same thing… quietly wiping down their cars on Sunday morning.

I bought a bag of power greens and a rotisserie chicken. A can of peanuts was an impulse buy (yum).

Back at my car, at the parking lot, I saw a tiny lady loading her car.  I asked her if she wanted hands with her 40 pack of drinking water.  “Yes, yes, please…” she said.  I put my stuff in my car as well. Then I went back to the food court.

I set in the shade and took my time eating a hot dog.  I came back home before noon and started my laundry.

I love Sunday morning.  Costco shopping was glorious.

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.

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.

19th Costco shopping in 2018 – $201.05 (today) / $1106.1 (this year)

I ordered another pair of progressive lenses for my eyeglasses.  My current glasses were new, about 5 months old.  But, after trying my new progressive lenses from Costco, I refuse to go back to regular lenses.  Costco has the best price and best quality on eyeglass lenses.  The world looks different with Costco lenses. Really, I am not kidding.

I stopped buying small lunch salad kits.  Instead, I’ve been making my own salad with Power Greens, boiled egg whites, and some protein items (chicken, fish, whatever I can find).

I promise, I will stop buying pants. But, these were light gray. I don’t have any light gray pants.  So, I bought two pairs.  They are Calvin Klein.  I will enjoy them.

Oh, and I don’t have to iron these.

* My heart was set on rotisserie chicken, but they were completely out of chicken.  There was 30 minute waiting time. I was very disappointed.

Costco often offer instant savings on Doritos.  That’s when I buy them.

I bought a bag of Doritos for my coworker.  If you remember my Christmas video, I walked up to someone’s cubicle and took a scoop of salsa with a cracker (see below at 0:44). I left this bag of Doritos at that table.  It was a hit.  A few people made remarks about it.  People love me at my work.

I made a quick stop at Costco after work for some greens.  Wild herring in wine sauce is a treat.  I get a craving once in a while, and I must have some.

15th Costco shopping in 2018 – $186.30 (today) / $844.46 (this year)

I spent many hours researching.  I can tell you with confidence that Costco provides the best deal on prescription lenses (for eyeglasses).

There are cheaper deals out there.  I used to wear a pair of eyeglasses from China that was $18 for both frame and lenses.  So, if you are poor, you can take a chance, sacrifice your vision, and save money.  I was young and financially challenged several years ago.  At that time China was my only option.  Now that I am financially stable, I will absolutely avoid sending my prescription to China.

Today I ordered a pair of lenses at Costco.  This was my first bi-focal.

Since Costco has limited supply of eyeglass frames, I bought a frame of my own from Amazon.  Costco charges $25 (?) for bringing your own glasses.  They charged me $18 this time, because of the system glitch.  They couldn’t find account number to charge me $25(?).  So, they charged the old price of $18.

After ordering prescription lenses, I bought a 16 pack of Gillette razor blades, Fusion5 Proglide, with $10 savings.  As far as I am concerned, Gillette razors that takes a battery is the best (non-professional) shaving system on this planet .  Let me know if there are better razors out there.

$34.99 for 16 pack is THE best price anywhere.  Without $10 savings, you can find better price on eBay.

There are ways to make your razor blades to last longer. I should study on how to properly maintain them. I don’t do anything special to my razor blades.  But, each of my razor blades lasts well over a month.  I understand most men go through 1 razor blades a week. I guess most men have a lot more hair.. thicker… gross.
