My club card – 3 in 1

This is my club card.

I put three club cards in one.

It contains Vons, Ralphs, & Albertsons. I had this for about 6-8 years now. Vons club card is the oldest one. It’s about 10 years old.

(update many years later – I almost deleted this blog post. It’s stupid and embarrassing.)

Christmas shopping started – 2 nephews done

Christmas shopping has officially begun. I bought gifts for 2 nephews today.

I bought 2 RC cars from Costco; they were $49 for a set of two. I paid $34 after the $15.00 coupon.

Then I went to Wal*Mart and bought $100.00 worth of rechargeable batteries and a 15 minutes charger. I think my nephews will like the batteries more than the cars. With today’s electronic gadgets, you can never have too many batteries. And 15 minute recharging time is cool.

Now I have about a $70.00 allowance for my niece.

Christmas is for the children. I spend all my Christmas budget on the youngsters. My grown-up family members understand I don’t buy gifts for grown-ups. We have fun watching the kids opening presents. 

For grown-ups, I bring cakes and shrimp cocktails from Costco. I can’t wait for Christmas. 4 months will fly by.

Guinness Beer from Costco

Costco doesn’t always carry Guinness in my area. I don’t normally see Guinness at my Costco, but I see them occasionally.

18 cans of Guinness sell for $20.99 at Costco. That’s $1.17 a can. Considering a cup of coffee is $2.00, I think it’s a reasonable price. Still, Guinness costs two times more than cheaper domestic beers. Guinness is imported beer from Ireland.

I favor expensive beers because I am not a drinker. I rarely drink any alcoholic beverages. I drink maybe 1 can of beer a month. 

Also, I don’t like the taste of beer. All beers taste bitter to me. Expensive beers taste less yucky, so when I drink beer, I go for expensive ones.

I bought the beer mug from Bed Bath & Beyond for $5.00. A cold frosty mug makes the beer drinking experience more enjoyable.

Best price on Sony DVD

I never buy blank DVDs from Costco. Blank DVDs at Costco don’t have a good price. Costco sells spindles of 100 blank Sony DVDs at $29.49 each. I can easily find the same Sony DVDs for $23.00.

This time Costco had a “Buy one, get one free” coupon on these Sony DVDs.

So, they come out under $15.00 for each spindle (100 pack). Now that’s a pretty good price on blank DVDs.

I have a BS degree in computer. But I don’t know the difference between -R and +R on the blank DVDs. They all work for me But I always mix -R’s & +R’s just in case.

Costco Breakfast

Today’s breakfast.

Everything you see in this picture is from Costco. I try to eat well, but it’s not easy.  I often eat a really bad lunch (with fries and soda).
