Costco Shopping December 12, 2008

Beer and chocolate are for Christmas party tomorrow. 

Box of pens (84 colors) is for my niece.

Samsonite’s wheeled duffel was only $39.99 – I thought it was an incredible price.  I am planning to go to Hawaii next year, so..

I had to buy more chicken soup just in case I catch cold again.

I liked the pillows so much that I had to buy one more set.

* I forgot to buy cold medication.

** I spent well over $200.00 today (with hotdog, salads, & gas)

* The story behind the beer:  At Costco, I was looking for something to bring to the party tomorrow.  Then I saw this Kirkland Signature’s Handcrafted Beer.  It contained four different kinds of beers, including hefeweizen.

I stopped and looked at the beer for a while.  Then some other guy stopped and started to look at the beer.  I told the guy "These beers have to be good.  It’s Costco.  Satisfaction guaranteed".

The guy said "I know.  Costco didn’t make them.  I bet they are from a good beer maker".  We chatted a little.  He told me that I should try Hefeweizen beer.  We both agreed that less than $1 per a bottle is pretty good value.  I walked away without the beer.  Then I came back later to get a case.

10 minutes later I bumped into the same guy.  We both had a case of Kirkland Signature’s Handcrafted Beer in our carts.  We laughed.
