Costco Shopper's Christmas Day

Dec
25

Merry Christmas everyone.

I was looking forward to family dinner at my parents' house.  You see, I was home alone for Thanksgiving.  I enjoyed my day off and all, but..  
Anyway, This is how my day went as a Costco shopper.



I had my usual breakfast (eggs, sandwich, & juice).  You see, I'm a single man.  I try to use less amount of dishes possible, so I have less to clean up later.  It works for me.

Costco Coffee Pumpkin Spice
I brewed Pumpkin Spice Coffee for the road.
Check out my poor man's coffee maker from Rite Aid. 
I don't need expensive coffee maker.


2 bags full of Costco products & gifts for Christmas dinner
Later, I ended up filling one more Costco tote bag with bottles of water and sodas.


My nephews loved the cars I bought from Costco


Before the turkey was ready, 3 containers of Costco shrimps were gone.
You can also see table cover, cups, plates, and napkins I brought.
Oh, and there is a piece of Cosco's turkey jerky

Costco Chocolate
My oldest sister took the jar of "Chocolate of the World" by Kirkland Signature.  She emptied the entire contents on the carpet and picked out her favorite flavors.  Then she hid her stash.  ha ha....

I also gave my sister 2 Costco tote bags


This is what I came back home with.  Ham and mustard are from Honeybaked.  So, out of all the Costco products I brought, all I had left was 2 pieces of chocolate.  I even gave out 2 Costco tote bags to my sister.

It was a glorious day.  I felt sad that Christmas came and gone so fast.  It was past midnight before I knew it.  Cry Cool

A Christmas Gift to Myself

Dec
24

This is a Christmas gift I gave to myself.

It's Das Keyboard - the best keyboard available.

I bought the "Ultimate" model.  As you can see the keyboard is completely blank. 

It was $129.00, delivered from www.daskeyboard.com
It's a little expensive, but Christmas gift should be fancy.
I am loving this keyboard.

I spend 12-16 hours a day typing (programming & blogging).  I am thinking about getting one for work as well.  It's a beautiful keyboard.  The quality is amazing.

Costco Blog - Shopping December 23, 2008

Dec
24

I am getting ready for Christmas dinner at my parents' house in 2 days.  I thought it would be too risky to go to Costco tomorrow (Christmas Eve).  Costco will close early tomorrow.  Also, pumpkin pies may run out.

I think I'm all set.  Oh, I need to pickup Honey Baked Ham from Ventura tomorrow.

Costco has quality ham.  Kirkland Signature hams are pretty good.  I feel sorry to betray Costco, but I had to pay big bucks and order Honey Baked.  What can I say...

After taking this picture, I fixed a quick dinner with Beef Steak Strips and couscous (pictured below, six pack).  I love good instant meals I get from Costco.

OK, Merry Christmas everyone.. I'm out.

Costco answers phone with "Merry Christmas"

Dec
22

Below is an excerpt from the article I found at The Christian Science Monitor.  I thought it was interesting.  Click here for a full article

This year between Dec. 1 and Dec. 8, Costco President Jim Sinegal received e-mail from 124,000 AFA members who objected to an alleged Costco policy to avoid the term "Christmas" in promotions. By Dec. 10, an operator at Costco headquarters in Issaquah, Wash., was answering all calls with a "Merry Christmas!" greeting. "They recognize now that these advertising yuppies out of college were steering their companies wrong," says Randy Sharp, AFA director of special projects. "I believe we're beginning to win the war [for] Christmas."

Christmas shopping started - 2 nephews done

Aug
26

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...
