Costco Shopping – July 28, 2009

* Today’s Costco shopping: 25th time this year, 3rd time this month

I spent over 1 hour at Costco today. I am an indecisive person. When I have unexpected products in front of me, I need to spend plenty of time deciding.

Food-wise, I bought the same old stuff, except for the cheese and seasoning salt. I’ve been doing good with money and diet.

I spent $196.48 today ($38.78 gas, $79.82 clothes, $77.88 food).

5 Lounge shirts were under $5 each. I like these shirts. These are extremely cheap. They are light and soft. They feel pleasing to my skin.

Adidas’ sport shirt was $14.99. I guess I could have spent the same amount of money and bought 2 shirts of lesser quality. But look at that shirt. It’s adorable. I love this shirt. I’ve been doing good with my workout routine. I lost 4 pounds since I started to run 3 months ago.

A pair of vacation shorts was $19.99. I could have saved a few bucks by buying cheaper shorts from Target. But these are Calvin Klein.

The yellow shirt goes with the vacation shorts – it’s for vacation (cruise).

Without Costco, I would buy cheaper quality clothes from elsewhere. I don’t mind buying cheaper quality clothes, but…

I spent almost the same amount of money I would have spent at discount stores. But I walked away with much better products.

This is a perfect example of “elevating my life-style with the same amount of money”
