It seems I discovered a new strategy for staying focused and not goofing off when shopping at Costco. Basically, just drink a lot of water about half an hour before your trip. (Fighting an urge to have to go to the bathroom brings needs vs. wants into crystal clarity.)
In spite of a bit too much water before today’s trip, I managed to find quite a few fun and interesting things to report to you as part of this month’s Stuff I didn’t know I needed…until I went to Costco feature. As a reminder, this monthly feature highlights both deals and distractions. (You know, those things that scream “buy me! buy me!” as you waltz down the aisles.)
With that, here’s what I found today:
48 Ft String Lights Outdoor Weatherproof for $59.99. These would be charming over a deck or gazebo, wouldn’t they? Nevermind that we’re still in February, these lights have me dreaming about July nights already.
Want to start a garden, but overwhelmed which seeds to buy? You could spring for this 16-pack of Mountain Valley Organic Garden Seeds for $19.79. (This works out to $1.24 per pack, which is pretty great for organic seeds.)
Because I know someone is going to want to know which seeds are included in the packet: carrot, tomato, zucchini, kale, lettuce, beat, snap pea, watermelon (good luck with that in Washington!), cantaloupe, basil, cilantro, tomato, cucumber, sweet pepper, hot pepper, and bunching onion.
Woah! How cool is this? It’s a pizza oven for $129.97. I’d love one of these, but probably not for $129.97. Maybe someone can buy me one for Christmas.
