Harvest Wreath Recall (letter)

Harvest Wreath is being recalled.

I bought it last month (July 30, 2013 Costco Shopping), and I haven't opened the package yet.  I would like to keep it, but I don't know anything about mold and how serious it is.  So I shall bring it back.

No more clipping coupons - It is official

1 comments.

It's official, this answers our question.

(officially) We do not have to clip coupons anymore.  You can just show your coupon books without clipping them.  Additionally, you don't have to have coupon book with you.  If you have a smart phone, you can show coupons from your mobile app.  Your cashier will honor the coupon you show on your mobile app.

* At this point, I will not be surprised if a lot of Costco warehouses apply coupon discounts to every shoppers automatically, without asking for coupons.

Until this point, officially, we were supposed to clip coupons.  That's why they say ""No more clipping coupons"

I served jury duty today.

I brought my reading material to pass time.

It was a drunk drive case.  I know three close friends who escaped death after getting hit by drunk drivers (2 separate accidents).  I got dismissed.

Jul

This is how my typical lunch looks like at work. They don't smell, so I can eat at my desk (compared to some people eating hot dish).

Chicken, cheese, yogurt are from Costco.

I rarely eat out so I can save money.  I am saving to buy a car next Christmas (2014)

Costco Shampoo - 8 Months Rotation

0 comments.

Jul
07

I shampoo every day, rarely twice a day.  And I have long hair, way below my shoulders.

I dated my bottle of Kirkland Signature shampoo when I opened it on November 7, 2012.  Today is July 7, 2013.  So, a bottle of Costco shampoo should last you 8 months.

The secret is to use just the amount you need.  I am not saying you should use less than you need.  I use plenty amount of shampoo.  I just don't use more than I need.

Little Giant Ladder - Price Comparison

1 comments.

Apr

I bought a Little Giant Ladder from Costco for $179.99.   I didn't bother to compare price at that time.  It was my educated guess that it was the best price in town.  I did price check after I brought it home, just to make sure and to make me feel good.

The exact model name is -  Model 17, Type 1A

On their official website, they sell these for $259.99 with free tax and shipping

Amazon sells them for $249.99 plush tax and shipping

Costco sells them for $179.99 with free shipping (if you want them shipped).  I bought mine at my local Costco warehouse.  The ladder will fit in the back seat of normal 4 door sedans.

This is an incredible deal at $55 savings.  One purchase of Little Giant ladder pays for Costco membership.  And there is no shipping hassle. Honestly, I don't know why some people don't have Costco membership.

Once these ladders are gone, it will take long time to see them again at Costco.  Go get yours now.  Enjoy.

No Costco Shopping - Again

1 comments.

I had a short day at work today (Friday). I came home around 4pm.

I drew up a shopping list - I was planning to go to Costco, Wal*Mart, ROSS,  Target, and Home Depot.

I enjoy shopping alone.  I weaseled out from a female friend who wanted to come shopping with me. Why ruin a perfect shopping night with a girl, I figured.  I guess I haven't met a true love.

I ate a light snack and took a nap before going out.  In my dream I shopped at a super Costco where toilet papers come in 70 rolls pack.

When I woke up it was 8:30pm - I slept for 4 hours.  Costco was closed!

So... no shopping, no girl.  :(

Costco Lunch - Salad

2 comments.

I had a lunch today (Thursday) at Costco with a super smart friend (A computer programmer who got his masters degree at 20).

I only eat hot dogs on weekend after Costco shopping (My weekend starts Friday 5pm).  As a matter of fact, I generally eat very healthy Monday to Friday. And I eat whatever I want on weekends.  I love KFC, steak, lobster, BBQ...  anything that's bad for human body.

I took below picture after I finished eating salad. 

I didn't eat croutons, and only ate 1/3 of salad dressing.  I even left out the cheese.  I don't really watch nutritional facts.  But I always use common sense when I eat.  My common logic tells me that it is better to avoid croutons and dressings.  I don't have to do a research to come to that conclusion.

I thought I share this little story to motivate some of you trying to lose weight. When it comes to losing weight, every bite counts.  You make 6 packs in the kitchen, not in the gym.  And, ladies, you will not get bulky if you workout, unless you take man hormon and do muscle building workout 8 hours a day for next 5 years. Most men don't get big from normal workout, either. We'll be happy if we look lean and cut.

Thank God there is a coupon for Q-Tips this month.  I was almost out of them tips.  What a timing...

One thing about Q-Tips.  It says not to use them on ear canal, but we (especially men) use them to clean nothing but ear canals.
