On a whim, I started a monthly feature this year entitled “stuff I didn’t know… until I went to Costco.” This feature is now THE most popular on my blog and I’ve been blown away by the response. Given that so many of you love (and love to hate!) Costco, the series is going to continue into the indefinite future. (So Costco shoppers, rejoice!)
My conception for this series is simple: highlight stuff in the store that catches my eye. Those shiny gadgets on the end-cap, those unusual housewares at solid prices, those delicious-sounding food items that I won’t find at my typical grocery store. Stuff that never made my Costco shopping list, but stuff I suddenly find myself unable to leave the store without.
With Thanksgiving and Black Friday approaching, I knew I didn’t want to wait until next week to scout out my local Costco for this month’s feature (I have a limited threshold for crazy crowds). So, I’m giving it to you a few days earlier than normal (and I sincerely hope and trust that will be OK with you).
I’m ashamed to say that the very first thing I spotted when I walked in the door – this large bottle of O’Mara’s Irish Country Cream for $12.99 – went into my cart. And just like that, I was wondering how the day’s trip was going to go. It’s very good in case you’re wondering.
I picked up a pair of these Dearfoam Slippers for $9.99 a couple months ago and love them. At first, I thought they were too small, but I just needed to break them in. Turns out the big fluffy “rim” of the slipper was preventing my foot from going all the way in. I just needed to un-fluff them a bit with a little wear. Problem solved.
This was another one of those deals I found in the front of the store: for $29.99, get a Crock-Pot Slow Cooker AND a “little dipper” pot. (This is one of those Top Costco Coupon deals I shared a couple weeks back.)
I always like browsing the gift card section at Costco. You never quite know what you’re going to find. Like this – it’s for the Indoor Skydiving place and you’ll save up to 41% when you buy the gift card at Costco. Wouldn’t this make an AWESOME gift?
