Michael’s displayed Christmas items since late August.
From this point, we are in full Christmas mode. Christmas is just over three months away. You better start your Christmas shopping.
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.
Coupon book is out
This is a definite sign of Christmas.
Costco, August 25, 2008
FYI: Michael’s now have a full scaled display of Christmas items.
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.
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 $15.00 coupon.
Then I went to Wal*Mart and bought a $100.00 worth of rechargeable batteries and a 15 minutes charger. I believe my nephews will like the batteries. With today’s electronic gadgets, you can never have too much batteries. And 15 minute recharging time is cool.
Now I have about $70.00 allowance for my niece.
Christmas is for the children. I spend all my possible money on the youngsters. My grown up family members udnerstand that 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 to Christmas. 4 months will fly by. Oh boy…
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 is priced 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 tend to 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. Cold frosty mug makes beer drinking experience more enjoyable.
– Cheers –
I never buy blank DVD’s from Costco. Blank DVD’s at Costco don’t have good price. Costco sells spindles of 100 blank Sony DVDs at $29.49 each. I can easily find the exact same Sony DVD’s for $23.00.
This time Costco had "Buy one, get one free" coupon on these Sony DVD’s.
So, they come out under $15.00 each spindle (100 pack). Now that’s a pretty good price on blank DVD’s.
PS. I forgot to use this coupon the other day. I dropped by today when I was on my way to meet somebody.
I have a BS degree in computer. But I don’t know the difference between -R and +R. They all work for me But I always mix -R’s & +R’s just in case.
Today’s treat was the shrimps. I look at these shrimps everytime I go to Costco. I thought I’ve waited long enough to enjoy some.
I also had a hotdog. and I put gas in the car. (3.99/gal)
Oops! I ate this at Costco with a Costco Hotdog
At first, I was going to get a taste or two. I hate myself.
This was today’s breakfast.
Everything you see in this picture is from Costco. I try to eat good, but it’s not easy. I often eat really bad lunch (with fries and all…).
I went to a wedding today. They had dinner catered from Wood Ranch. Good stuff.
I was presently surprised to see some Costco shrimps on the kitchen table. I had to grab some. Costco shrimps completed my dinner. Good stuff.
Costco Shrimps at the Wedding
It was an incredible dinner. I loved it.
I used my new American Express card for the first time today. After shopping, I even put gas in the car. There was absolutely no line at the gas station. Gas was $4.159 a Gallon.
The price on eggs was pretty good at $5.49 (5 dz). This is a lot cheaper than $9.29 I paid 4 months ago. ($6.59 in April)
We are in grape season now. So enjoy fresh graps while they last.
Costco Coupon Book (what’s left from my last shopping) saved me another $10.00. So my total savings from this Costco coupon book is now $41.50.
I love Costco coupons. Today I saved $31.50 with Costco coupon book.
Everything I bought was something we absolutely needed, except for the M&M candies and the wicked long pillow in the back. Today was Friday so I treated myself with a bag of M&M. After working 70 hours (or more) this week, I think I deserve something sweet.
I was tempted to buy some sodas (Pepsi) with the coupon. But I decided not to. I try not to drink soda. Also, I do not have that kind of money. Sodas are bad for you anyway.
I was especially happy with Gillette Mach3 disposable shavers. They have the same Gillette Mach3 blades, except the whole bodies are disposable. The price on this 10 pack was better than buying 10 pack of identical razors (heads only, per item cost calculated).
I don’t have any work this weekend. So, I’m going to relax and enjoy M&M as I work on my websites. I don’t think I will use the razors ’til Monday morning.
After shopping I went to El Pollo Loco to eat (next story).
Good day everyone.
