Let the treasure hunt begin.

The doors to the first ever Costco in Peterborough opened today at 8 a. m.

Last night at an invitation-only pre-celebration, eager customers, business people and local politicians got their first glance at the 145,000-square-foot store.

There were rows and rows of perfectly stacked iPods, vitamins, chocolates and perfectly folded coats and towels — all waiting for eager hands to rummage through the piles for the perfect purchase.

General manager James Dalton, who relocated from Halifax, said customers should look forward to the "treasure hunt that we always have."

The Bastian family is ready. "We’re thrilled," said Ralph Bastian.

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.

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.

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 $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…

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 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.

Best price on Sony DVD

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.

Shopping at Costco – August 5, 2008

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. Smile

Costco Breakfast

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…).
