But, we needed a place for Costco shoppers to say hi.
I hope you enjoy the stay. Have a nice day.

Costco Shopping - September 1, 2017

Today was a big Costco shopping day.  This month's coupon book had a lot of interesting stuff in it.  Also, it's Labor Day weekend, so I bought some treat for myself.

First of all, SPAM was $4 off.  SPAM~!!!  They have 25% less sodium, so I can eat twice as much. Yum~!

I bought 2 bottles of magic pills by Natrol.  5-HTP is supposed to balance my mood.  Biotin is supposed to bring back my hair.  They both had $4 instant savings, that they were several Dollars each bottle. So, I thought I give it a chance.

I have a female coworker who can use 5-HTP (mood balance).  But, there isn't a nice way to give it to her.  "Hey, great news.  These pills may stop you from being a beyotch.  You know you need it.  Come on, take a handful. it should fix you up good."

For Labor Day weekend I bought pork jerky and baby back ribs.

Roca candies are for one of my co-workers.  Her last name is Roca.  So, I will give it to her for fun.  People love me at work because I do things like that.

I bought staple items such as toilet papers, shaving gels, scrub sponges, jumbo shrimps, etc...

I spent $183.99, and saved $39.00 with instant coupons.

I saw Lionel's Polar Express train set at amazing price (under $60 ?). This would be a definite sign of Christmas in Costco.  These train sets sell for $90 - $170 elsewhere.   I love Polar Express.  Watching Polar Express is my Christmas ritual. These trains will sell out quick.  Guaranteed. I would love to own one.

If you can't find the train at your local Costco location, you can buy (possibly) the same item from Amazon.  I do not guarantee they will be the exact same item.

Ashleigh.  I deleted your question by mistake.

I go to 4 different Costco locations around Southern California.  I bought this train set at Westlake Village, California.

You can buy these at Amazon for $99.98.  They may have different packaging, but I think the train itself must be identical.

Yes, new ones are thinner.  I have both old and new scrubs, and it says on the packages.  Older ones are .9 Inches thick.   New ones are .8 Inches thick. 

The new one says "Lasts 50% longer" on the package.

Have you tried your Scotch Brite sponges? I recently bought a pack and noticed that they are much thinner. They seem to tear much easier now too.

Thank you, thank you for visiting.

I LOLed at your comment about your beyotch coworker needing mood pills. This is why I love your blog! You crack me up.

It was so nice of you to buy the Almond Roca's for another coworker too. Getting little surprises is always fun.
