The mattress was vacuum packed and squeezed into a smaller box so it’s easier to ship. The box could fit in the back seat of my car. I borrowed a dolly from work to transport this 98 lb box. But I could have done it without the dolly.

Memory foam mattress expending from vacuum – still folded in half

The mattress already had a protective cover on it.

The mattress was fully expanded in 10-20 minutes. I didn’t have to wait 72 hours. And there were no bumps or irregular corners. I smelled chemicals at first, but it was not bad.

** 10 months later (October 15, 2009). I can tell you without a doubt that I love my mattress.  I am very happy with my mattress.

 

After Thanksgiving Shopping Spree – 2008

I wouldn’t dare going out for Black Friday shopping. The traffic & waiting game ain’t worth it for me. Black Friday shopping can be fun if you have a shopping buddy.

I went out shopping on Saturday, 2 days after Thanksgiving Day. 

1. ROSS

I found medium size (32-34) Jockey underwear. A box of 3 was $5.99. So I bought 6 boxes – Basically, I grabbed everything with M sticker on it. Finally, my underwear worry is over (until 2013 ?).

Update – many years later, my underwear size is small. Something must have shrunk.

2. Costco
My shopping spree wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Costco. As a part of my current project ‘Shopping for a Bed’, I bought some pillows and a queen-size flannel sheet set. I also bought some new towels. They feel high class.

And I bought a pair of pants for work, 2 fleece shirts & 1 pair of fleece pants.

I ate a hot-dog in the car – there were so many people that I couldn’t find a place to eat outside.

4. Bed Bath and Beyond

Ah~! the glorious Thanksgiving steak sales

I think I have about 9 pieces of New York steak in the freezer (vacuum packed).

Then I saw this ad on T-Bone steak… $3.99/lb is just about the best price you will find anywhere. Ah~! the glorious Thanksgiving steak sales.

Ribeye, New York, and T-Bone each have their own unique taste. I like steaks with bones. The bone brings more flavor to the meat. To me, bone is very important in steaks.

Ralphs Vons flier
Vons has New York steak for $3.77/lb – That’s insane

 

I didn’t look at anything else on the fliers.  I have a lot of food already.  Not only that, I went out to shop during my break-time.  I had to go back to work fast.

Oh boy… I have a huge craving for chocolate ice-cream.  I shall go and pick up a pack right now.  I hope they have a sale.  Smile

Costco Shopping November 17, 2008

The major purchase was a Canon Camera. I bought the camera for somebody. The camera is not for me.

I’ve always wanted to try Red Bull, but I find them extremely expensive. They usually go for over $2 a can. With a $6.00 coupon, Costco’s Red Bull is about $1.16 a can. You’ve gotta love Costco.

I bought a bunch of fruits and vegetables for my daily juicing.

I bought a bunch of kitchen items today. I feel good about it.

I will not buy Pita Chips again. It’s not for me. They are thick and hard. And they don’t have enough flavor for me.

Costco Coupons saved $69.00.
After shopping, I ate a hotdog & bought gas.

Halloween 2008 shopping

I saw a lot of Costco employees in fun costumes today.

All fruits and vegetables are for morning juice before going to work. Bread is for a breakfast sandwich at work. I’m having salad for lunch tomorrow.

I went overboard with snacks.

On the way out, I ate a hot-dog and put gas in my car.
