After Thanksgiving Shopping Spree – 2008

I wouldn’t dare going out for Black Friday shopping. The traffic & waiting game ain’t worth it for me. Black Friday shopping can be fun if you have a shopping buddy.

I went out shopping on Saturday, 2 days after Thanksgiving Day. 

1. ROSS

I found medium size (32-34) Jockey underwear. A box of 3 was $5.99. So I bought 6 boxes – Basically, I grabbed everything with M sticker on it. Finally, my underwear worry is over (until 2013 ?).

Update – many years later, my underwear size is small. Something must have shrunk.

2. Costco
My shopping spree wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Costco. As a part of my current project ‘Shopping for a Bed’, I bought some pillows and a queen-size flannel sheet set. I also bought some new towels. They feel high class.

And I bought a pair of pants for work, 2 fleece shirts & 1 pair of fleece pants.

I ate a hot-dog in the car – there were so many people that I couldn’t find a place to eat outside.

4. Bed Bath and Beyond

Ah~! the glorious Thanksgiving steak sales

I think I have about 9 pieces of New York steak in the freezer (vacuum packed).

Then I saw this ad on T-Bone steak… $3.99/lb is just about the best price you will find anywhere. Ah~! the glorious Thanksgiving steak sales.

Ribeye, New York, and T-Bone each have their own unique taste. I like steaks with bones. The bone brings more flavor to the meat. To me, bone is very important in steaks.

Ralphs Vons flier
Vons has New York steak for $3.77/lb – That’s insane

 

I didn’t look at anything else on the fliers.  I have a lot of food already.  Not only that, I went out to shop during my break-time.  I had to go back to work fast.

Oh boy… I have a huge craving for chocolate ice-cream.  I shall go and pick up a pack right now.  I hope they have a sale.  Smile

Good buy, but impulse buy – HP Laserjet P1005

I made an impulse buy last week.

This HP Laserjet P1005 printer was on sale at newegg.com for $50.00 plus free shipping. This printer usually goes for $120.00 – $160.00.

Basically, I bought the ink cartridge, and they gave me the printer for free.

The problem is that my current printer works fine. It’s an older model, and it prints slower. But it works. 

(*update 2021 – I currently use this printer)
