This is a personal blog. I am not affiliated with Costco in any way.
But, we needed a place for Costco shoppers to say hi.
I hope you enjoy the stay. Have a nice day.

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.

99 Cents only stores to raise price


99 Cents only store found the way to increase price and still keep it under a Dollar.

Photography by yours truly - in 2006 (I think)

Now, they are 99.99 Cents only.

I thought this was a brilliant idea.  99 Cents only stores needed to raise price.  Also, they need to raise price in the future.  I don't know how they will keep things under a buck in the future.  At one point, they must raise price.

This is why Big!Lots makes sense. But I like them better when they used to be Pick 'n Save

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 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.

Shopping at Vons - 52% Saving


Happy Labor Day everyone~!

I truly deserve a Labor Day.  I work at least 60-70 hours a week

I don't buy meat from Costco.  I am pretty sure that Costco carries quality meat, but I just cannot afford them.  Meat products are expensive at Costco.

I can find good deals on steak at supermarkets everywhere. Whenever I see ribeye steak or New York steak at under $4.00/lb, that's when I stock up. 

Ribeye steak was $3.99 a pound.  So I bought 10 bounds of ribeye steak, a cake, and some fruits.

Plum, peach, and green beans were all $.99/lb.

Check it out.  I spent $47.49 and saved $52.41.

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...
