Forgot to bring my coupon~!!

I went Costco today and I completely forgot to bring my Costco coupon book. I didn't have much to buy.. but one of the items (I wanted to buy with coupon) was a 56Oz bag of M&M (peanuts).

I am scheduled to go to Costco pretty soon. So... things can wait.

I'm having chicken for dinner tonight.
Jumbo shrimps are my special treat.  This bag will last 4-6 months.

Reed (Fragrance) Diffuser is something I need.  After a long day, when I walk into my apartment, my place doesn't smell quite the best.  I need to have some fancy scent that will motivate me to work on my personal projects such as ilovecostco.com.

Gas was $3.359 a Gallon

* I was looking for Guinness (beer), but they didn't have it. Frown.  I cannot drink cheap beer anymore.  This is a typical side-effect from shopping at Costco for too long.  You learn to appreciate good stuff.

Thought on futon at Costco

Body: 

I am currently looking for decent quality somewhat comfortable futon for the 2nd bedroom which is currently being used as an office. It would be used about 50/50 for sleeping and sitting. I don't want something disposable that will be uncomfortable, nor do I want the best most expensive futon out there. In my searching, I came across a nice looking complete one (futon, frame, cover and accent pillows) on Costco's website made by Big Tree Big Sleep in SoCal. But it is only available online and not in stores. I do not like to buy things like furniture without seeing it first and in this case, sitting and lying on it. I do realize Costco's furniture is usually of decent quality and they have a generous return policy, so thats not my concern. I just don't want to waste time ordering something, waiting for it to be delivered, assembling it, just to find out I don't like it and have to return it. I did contact the manufacturer to try and find a retailer in my area that carries their products, but they weren't much help. They also sell some futons at Sam's Club under the Simmons name, so I'm not sure if thats a good thing or not. But they've got good ratings there. Does anyone here have experience with Big Tree Big Sleep futons or recommendations for another manufacturer? Thanks!!!

Haggar's Luxe Khaki pants are back

I went to Costco for passport pictures.

Then I hit the jackpot.

They finally brought back "Luxe Khaki" pants by Haggar. These are my favorite pants of all time. 

They are wrinkle free, they stretch a little, and they look professional.

These pants are a lot more comfortable than blue jeans.

I only had three pairs of these pants.  And I wanted to buy some more.  Today I bought 5 pairs ($19.99 each)

I tell ya.  Wrinkle free is way to go.  It's not totally wrinkle free.  I iron them every time.  But, It takes very short time to iron them.  I hope they carry more colors.

Costco newbie at a loss

Body: 

Two questions: 1) Does Costco send out coupons in the mail? Because they would only take the address on my driver's license which is my old address. argh. 2) Do certain Costco branches sell alcohol? If so, does anyone know which branches in the NY/NJ area do? Thank you!

Good buy, but impulse buy - HP Laserjet P1005

I made an impulse buy last week.

This HP's Laserjet model P1005 was on sale at newegg.com for $50.00 plus free shipping. This paticular printer usually goes for $120.00 - $160.00.

Basically, I bought the ink cartridge and they gave me the printer for free.

The problem is that my current printer works fine.  It's an older model and it prints slower.  But it works.
