Costco Shopping – December 16, 2020

I was getting the second dose of the shingles vaccine at Costco. So, I took a half-day off from work (sick day). I like it when I get paid to go to Costco. I wore a mask and rubber gloves. The Covid-19 pandemic is at its worst yet. Over 3,0000 people die in America every single day. This is scary. Please be careful.

60 years old or older policy

Today, Costco was enforcing the 9-10 am 60 years old or older policy. Sometimes there aren’t many people in the warehouse and young people are allowed to shop early. I was perfectly fine waiting outside. As I say all the time, I pay tax and follow the rules. The weather was pleasant outside with a clear blue sky. Soon, it was 10 AM. The line to get into the warehouse was very long.

Shingles Vaccine

I get injections (vaccines) from Costco occasionally. They do an impressive job, I barely feel the needle. But, this time… I could feel the needle cutting through the meat of my shoulder. I felt the sharp poking, and I bled. I bled enough that he had to wipe it off twice. It was not painful, but one might say otherwise. I was not angry. It was all good. But, I thought he should know that he was not very good at his job. Of course, I didn’t say anything to him. “Thank you. You suck. Happy holidays.”

FYI: In most cases, you will feel miserable after a shingles shot. It’s not horribly bad, but you might want to take a day off from work the next day. I had a body ache, fever, and.. just miserable and sick. I worked from home, I clocked in, but I didn’t do any work. I was just miserable.

Toilet Paper

I put my flannel shirt back on and grabbed my shopping cart. It was comforting to see plenty of toilet papers. People were grabbing them up left and right, but there was plenty for everyone.

Kirkland Signature Spiral Ham

Kirkland Signature spiral ham was on top of my shopping list. This is a must buy. I don’t have much to say here. Is it Christmas time? then get this ham from Costco. Smallest Honey Baked Ham is about $60 and it goes up from there. My 10.3 pounds ham was $29.77. It comes with the glaze mix. I like my ham glazed.

Kirkland Signature Frozen Shrimps (21/25)

Jumbo shrimps were on sale – so I bought 2 packs. I wanted to get one more bag, but I didn’t have space in my freezer. These are huge shrimps (21-25 count per pound). Keep your Costco membership guys.. these are crazy good stuff. Two bags will last me about a year. It’s tough to have good food at home and not enjoy them every day. But, I have a priority in my daily diet. I will make them last a year.

32 Degrees Heat long sleeve shirts

32 degrees heat long sleeve shirts were on sale ($11.99 for 2-pack). It was the best price I could find anywhere. They are also available on the Costco website for $1 more ($12.99 for 2-pack), which is still a very good price. So I bought 3. I have a few of these long sleeve shirts. I work from home, and I needed more of these. My arms get cold when I work from home. These shirts work for me. Now I don’t have to turn on the heater as often. I saved $9 with instant savings. And I will also save on my electric and gas bills.

The Cheesecake Factory, Original Cheesecake

The Original Cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory is crazy good times for everyone, including people like me who live alone. $12.99 for a 4-pound cake is a good price for what you get (crazy good times). They are pre-sliced and divided into 12. And you keep it frozen. So, they will last a long time. This cheesecake will probably last 6-12 months. This is a single people’s insurance policy for depression. Do you feel blue and nobody loves you? Eat a slice of cheesecake and drive a convertible. Everything will be fine. Hahaha, that’s awful. But, you know what I mean.


I bought 2 bunches of flowers. They were special holiday arrangements – with pine cones and shit. My female friend has a sister who was visiting, so I would give them to both of the sisters. A big box of Cheez-It Crackers was for them as well. I tell you, guys… I should write a book about how to kiss ass.

And I bought the rest of the stuff – eggs, salad kit, spinach, carrots, and trash bags.

Below, I took pictures of my Costco shopping, moment by moment. Something is wrong with my camera. I need a new one. Hm…

Coupons saved $17.00

Happy holidays~!!! Enjoy and take care.
