I hope you enjoy the stay. Have a nice day.

October 13 shopping

I made a quick stop at Costco to pick up some coupon items.

I bought M&M and Pumpkin Spice Coffee.  There is no way I can finish that coffee.  I'm going to have to vacuum half a bag and freeze it for next holiday season.  I may have to trash it or give it away.

I'm having Costco salad for lunch tomorrow. Tongue out
I spent less than $50.00 - Coupon saved me $6.50

* I've been going to supermarkets for fruits and vegetables lately.
** You know what they didn't have at Costco today? - Beef Jerky.  I looked everywhere for Beef Jerky or Turkey Jerky.... I couldn't find them.

Costco Addict's Closet

Oh boy.. I just finished ironing... Took me over an hour.

Take a look at my closet.. this is how Costco addict's closet should look like.  Everything you see is from Costco (shirts, pants, even hangers). 

Photographed is my "work clothes" section.  I have a section of casual & lounge-wears from Costco as well.

AS you can see, I have multiple number of identical shirts and pants. 

How do I rotate my work clothes? - Recently ironed shirts and pants are placed on each outer side.  I wear whatever that's in the center of the rack.  So I get to match shirt and pants by random chance. 

Yeah, it's crazy good time.. ZZzz....

Day Old Coffee

Sometimes I don't get to finish all the coffee I brew.

When I have left-over coffee, I don't trash it.  I keep it for the next day.

I keep my old coffee in the refrigerator.  Next day, I put some syrup (either French Vanilla or Caramel, depends on the mood) and drink it cold.

I buy coffee syrups from Costco, but it gets a little tricky.

You can purchase coffee syrups ONLY from Jose's booth events.   Jose's sales team will visit your local Costco a few times a year.  We don't shop at Costco everday, so you may not get to see Jose's Booth for years.  You may have to call your local Costco for Jose's schedule.

Coffee Story #1 - Starbucks Gift-cards now at Costco

I saw this sign at the checkout line at Costco (Oxnard, Ca).

"Starbucks Gift Card, Five $20.00 cards for $79.00"

I love good coffees (reference my blog entry).  I always keep Starbucks coffee at home & at work.  Along with Starbucks coffee, I have a few more different brands of coffee for different mood of the day (FYI, I'm not gay Smile).  I am also a tea drinker.

Anyway, I think $2.00 for a cup of coffee is too expensive. The only time I go to Starbucks (or Coffee Beans) is when I meet customers.  The location provides me a good meeting place worth of paying a couple of bucks.  Other than that, I will never pay $2.00 for a coffee that I can brew at home.  Not to mention dealing with some phony people there.


Coffee Story #2 - Pumpkin Spice Coffee

I saw holiday flavored coffee at Costco the other day.  It's "Pumpkin Spice Coffee" by Newhall Coffee Roasting Company.  It smelled like Christmas.  I thought this coffee could help me through the season.  I was tempted to buy one of these at $7.99.  But I already have about 4-6 large bags of coffee filling up my freezer space. 

I should keep coffee beans in a cool room temperature.  But, I don't drink coffee too much.  A bag of coffee lasts long time - So, I vacuum and freeze them.

Honestly, my freezer is maxed out.  I don't have a space to squeeze in an ice cube.  You don't believe me?  Look... 

Let's see... If I finish that ice cream, I may have a space for that pumpkin Spice coffee.

This story is related to Linens'n Things closing story

So, my boss' wife went to the same Linens'n Things that I went 2 months ago.  I guess they now have better sales going on.

I better check them out before they close the store.  But I doubt I will find any useful items now.

Anyway, she went and bought a box of Bentley's Exotic Teas for us.

This is sweat, because I'm the only tea drinker at work.  Ha ha ha...

It's all mine.  I am enjoying them.

Forgot to bring my coupon~!!

I went Costco today and I completely forgot to bring my Costco coupon book. I didn't have much to buy.. but one of the items (I wanted to buy with coupon) was a 56Oz bag of M&M (peanuts).

I am scheduled to go to Costco pretty soon. So... things can wait.

I'm having chicken for dinner tonight.
Jumbo shrimps are my special treat.  This bag will last 4-6 months.

Reed (Fragrance) Diffuser is something I need.  After a long day, when I walk into my apartment, my place doesn't smell quite the best.  I need to have some fancy scent that will motivate me to work on my personal projects such as ilovecostco.com.

Gas was $3.359 a Gallon

* I was looking for Guinness (beer), but they didn't have it. Frown.  I cannot drink cheap beer anymore.  This is a typical side-effect from shopping at Costco for too long.  You learn to appreciate good stuff.

Haggar's Luxe Khaki pants are back

0 comments.

Sep

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.
