Sebamed has become one of the biggest market movers when it comes to sensitive skin. The brand’s ultra-gentle formula is safe and effective.

Costco Shopping - March 23, 2017

Mar
24

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.

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.

Toilet papers at the bottom of the cart.

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.

19

This is important.  I wanted to double check with some of you.

Starting tomorrow, your AmEx/Costoco card will stop working PERIOD. Don't get confused and think you can still use your AmEx/Costco card at other places outside of Costco. 

Your card will stop working completely.  According to AmEx website, you cannot even access your web account starting tomorrow (June 20, 2016).

Good luck.

Takeya Thermoflask Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle 40 oz (Twin Pack)

Apr
09

You pay less at Costco for 2 bottles, compared to a sinlge bottle from Amazon.

If you are lucky enough to find these Takeya Thermoflasks at your local Costco, just so you know, these are really good price.  This twin pack was $34.99.  Usually a single canister goes for $35.  These high quality canisters keep cold drinks cold for 24 hours, and hot drinks hot for 12.  I haven't used it yet, but I believe this is a good buy that will not be repeated.

I bought the twin pack and gave one to my boss that made him very happy.  I know, I have no shame.  So, I bought a thermo canister I've always wanted AND kissed my boss' ass at the same price.

This is why I shop at Costco frequently.  I never know what I'm going to find. 

Amazon is selling the identical bottle for $32.18 (plus shipping). 
So, you pay less at Costco for 2 bottles, compared to a sinlge bottle from Amazon.

Costco Dylan George T-Shirts - Bought 40 of them.

Nov
15

I know this will sound crazy to some people.  But, this will make perfect sense to some others.  I bought 40 shirts at Costco (Dylan George).  3 different colors, but same design.

About 3 years ago I bought 29 Calvin Klein T-Shirts.  For 2 years those Calvin Klein v-necks were "my look" that I truly enjoyed.  Costco brought back the same shirts earlier this year.  They were the same design as before, but they used entirely different (stupid) material that they couldn't pay me enough for me to wear them.

After two years I wore out all my CK shirts, so I had to throw them out,  I spent over a  year looking for my new shirts with no luck.  Then I finally found these Dylan George T-Shirts at Costco.  It's the brand name I have never heard of.  They were only $9.99 each, and they fit me well.  They are slim fit.  The sleeves are shorter than conventional t-shirts - I like that.  It has a small pocket that separates these shirts from most t-shirts that are basically undershirts. I really like these shirts.  I found my new look. So, I bought 40 of them.

$400 is a lot of money, but, to me, this was a smart investment.  I wish had I bought 70 Calvin Klein shirts 3 years ago, instead of measly 29.  What was I thinking??  x_0

Anyway, I've been hearing random compliments about my shirt.  Some dude even asked me if I work out.  It's good to know they like my shirts, because they will see them for a few years.  Haha.

Stack of 28 shirts

40 shirts in the closet.  After washing them, I hang my shirts on the right side. I wear whatever that's hanging on the left side.  So the shirts will slowly rotate from right to left.  It will take 40+ days to complete a rotation.  It will rotate 9 times in one year.

* The picture shows 1/3 (33%) of the closet.  I also have a coat closet,
