Costco garden products

Apr

Body: 

Last week I bought 2 bags of flowers to plant: Dicentra (pack of 6) and Alcea ( 6 as well).

Dicentra had total of 4 roots ( not 6 as pack said) and what was a real surprise – Alcea, it had one root of one color ( supposed to be 3) and one –already rotten root of other color. Very disappointed. One instead of 6 I paid for.

Used to buy flowers from Costco for many years, sometime it could happened that one or two pieces out of 6 could be dried out or rotten but having  only 1 out of promised 6…..no, will not give Costco another try

Costco Shopping - March 28, 2017

Mar

I've always wanted to taste champagne.  But, I was poor all my life, that I never had an oppotunity to taste champagn.  So, today I picked up a bottle of Kirkland Signature champagne. I was very excited about it. On my way out, the checkout guy asked what I was celebrating.  "Nothing.  It's my everyday champagne." I replied with a smile.

I cannot get enough of Chef's Cut Beef Jerkey.  It's really good.

Costco Shopping - March 23, 2017

Mar

I was excited to see SPAM on sale.  I don't know why a lot of people mock SPAM.  It's perfectly fine if you don't like SPAM.  But, you don't have to mock us.  None of my female friends, past and present, liked SPAM.  But, it was more than that.  When I told them I liked SPAM, they all made a puke face and said "Yuck". They seemed to take away points because I liked SPAM. Maybe that's why they didn't stick around... because I'm a SPAM lover.  SPAM, to me, is a must have item at my house. I crave SPAM every several months, and I must have some.  This 8 pack will last a few years.  Girls may come and go, but I will have these low sodium SPAMs in my cupboard, telling me everything will be fine.

Coupons saved $24.50 today.

Chef's Cut Beef Jerky was really good. I finished the whole bag in two days.  I may buy one more.  This was one of the best jerkies I have ever tasted.

I always buy jarlsberg cheese from Costco whenever there is a coupon.  This is an amazing buy.

Toiliet papers, glad food containers, shampoo, and conditioners were all on sale. It was a fun Costco shopping.

Sign of Getting Old - No more sneakers

Mar
19

I try to stay young.  I would like to believe I didn't change much.  But, if I look at certain things, I see clear signs of getting old. One thing I noticed was my shoes - I am talking about shoes I wear every day at work, weekend, when I go out Costco shopping, when I go out to see my friends...

Below is my current everyday shoes.  They are, Ecco, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and Hugo Boss. Black pair is my everyday shoes for work. Most younger coworkers wear sneakers at work. I cannot wear sneakers anymore because it feels funny.  I feel normal in dress shoes.  Why would I wear high performance sneakers when I don't plan to jump up and down at work?  I don't wear running shorts to work...I don't wear mouthpiece at I work.  I don't know.... that's how I look at it. 

Hence, sign of getting old.

The green insoles inside black shoes are Superfeet.  They are the best insoles money can buy (around $40 a pair).  So, my feet are very comfortable in dress shoes.

I hope Costco sells designer shoes.

Below is a pictur from 8 years ago, my everyday shoes were all sneakers. (picture below).

8 years ago was good times.  I would give anything to go back to that government subsidized 1 bedroom apartment.  I was very happy and positive back then.  I am still happy and positive... but old. :(   Haha.

St. Patrick's Day - Costco Corned Beef Brisket

Mar
17

Top of the morning to you.

This is my 4th year to celebrate St. Patrick's Day by making corned beef brisket. Costco always stock Bill Bailey's Corned Beef Brisket late February to beginning of March.

It's very simple to make.  I put the meat, cabbage, and water in a slow cooker. I set my slow cooker to low.  Then I go to work and come back.  Dinner is ready when I come back home (10-12 hours).  I still have to make mashed potato.

I like to eat my corned beef brisket with the juice.  I don't know how authentic this is, but I like it.

Happy new year

It was my first Costco shopping of 2017.  I didn't buy anything special.  Coupons saved $29.40.  Protein bars are for work.  Apples and green blends are for juicing.  I freeze naan bread which they will last about six months.  I am not quite sure if Focus Factor works.  But, at the same time, I am afraid to get off it.

Keeping Costco Spinach Fresh - Rubbermaid Containers

Dec
24

Mery Christmas!

I still live alone.  And I still buy food in bulk at Costco. 

I can make a big bag of Costco spinach to last solid 7 days.  I keep them crispy fresh until I finish the whole bag.  Recently I improved my vegetable storage system with a new set of 3 Rubbermaid containers at Costco.  I am not sure if they are still available at Costco. They were $15 or less for 3 containers (6 pieces).  That's a pretty good price.  They will pay for themselves in a few month.

For a large bag of Costco spinach, I need all three containers.  I put 2 sheets of paper towels at the bottom of each containers.  This system keeps my Costco spinach (& other vegetables) last a lot longer.

This saves my time and money - and elevate my life style.

Merry Christmas, everyone.  Now I get back to massive eating.
