It’s time again for another installment of Stuff I didn’t know I needed…until I went to Costco – the monthly feature for people who overspend at Costco buying mostly random (although somewhat useful) stuff and aren’t afraid to admit it. These posts outline a few deals as well as a few drools. In this regard, my Costco posts are partly useful, partly just a time to gab about fun stuff at Costco. (OK, maybe mostly just a time to gab about fun stuff at Costco.)
In last month’s post, I relayed the heartbreaking account of how my husband and I purchased a couple outdoor lights only to discover they were sold out when we returned to the store the following month. (Lesson: if you do see something you want at Costco, consider that it may not be in stock the next time you visit Costco.)
Well can you guess what I found today when I popped by Costco to put together this post?
Yes! I found the light! (All puns intended.) I’m guessing someone returned theirs. It was on a random aisle and labeled as “last one.” Ideally, we wanted to buy 2 more, but 1 more will be good enough. (My husband is thrilled, by the way. These lights are gorgeous and $34.99 is a total steal! While this particular model isn’t being sold at Costco anymore, there is a similar version selling for $29.99 you might want to consider.)
Here are some cool additional things I spotted during my trip today.
Twin over full bunkbed for $599.99. Both of my kids have bunkbeds and love them! This one seems pretty neat since it has a full-sized bed underneath. In case you’re wondering, I also spotted mattresses today during my trip.
I loved this set of 3 kids’ thermoses for $22.99! It includes a stainless steel one which apparently keeps cold things cold for up to 14 hours. Last year, I bought my daughter a stainless steel thermos so she could bring hot tomato soup to lunch! (One of her favorites.)
These beautiful copper mugs caught my eye, for sure! They are $39.99 for a set of 4, so definitely not on the cheap end. Does anyone know the advantage of a copper mug (besides it being pretty)? Does it retain the heat longer?
