Costco Shopping – March 19, 2018

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.
