* 9th Costco Shopping this year, 2nd time this month.
Calvin Klein Pants
I had to buy those pants. They are not jeans. They are not formal slacks. I needed a pair of casual but fancy pants. I only had 1 pair of pants fits into that category. Oh, they happened to be Calvin Klein.
Costco must have a special relationship with Calvin Klein, because Costco sells a lot of Calvin Klein items, CHEAP. I never did like brand name clothes before. But, lately, when I find some nice and cheap clothes, they happen to be Calvin Klein. I wonder how much they go for elsewhere. Probably a lot
Yeah, yeah.. it says Prostate Health...
Also, notice all items have bar-codes facing up.
Begging for Coupon
I bought a piece of Jarlsburg Cheese last time with a coupon. I finished that cheese already. I ate it with wine .
Anyway, I liked this cheese so much that I wanted to buy one more.
So, this is what I did: (oh boy)
I picked up a piece of Jarlsburg cheese. As I was shopping, I was looking for anyone with a coupon book. Then I found a nice looking family (mother, father, & son) shopping at dry food section. The mother had a coupon book in her hand.
So, I asked if they have a coupon for the cheese they can give me. They were happy to give it to me.
I was happy to save $2.50 on the cheese. The family was laughing because it was fun for them as well. I felt the cozy feeling while I was talking to the lovely folks. We were bonding. Maybe I was the only person felt that way, because I live alone.
Anyway, I have no shame when it comes to saving money. Haha.
Coupon saved $6.50
Even with pants and cheese, I managed to keep it under $100.00
After $18.02 in gas, my total expense today was $101.94
Last time I put gas in my car was March 12. So, I used 6 gallons of gas in 12 days. I should walk to work more often.
Today's shopping was rewarding. I was able to treat myself with some luxury items and still managed to spend less money than usual.
