Yesterday, I popped by Costco to scout out the prices of their turkeys. The place was definitely busier than normal and it occurred to me, I should just turn this into my monthly Costco trip! I don’t particularly enjoy busy shopping crowds and doubt I’d want to pay a trip the week of Thanksgiving to compile my monthly Costco post.
What this means for you: you get your Stuff I didn’t know I needed…until I went to Costco post a bit earlier than usual. If you’re just joining me, let me break down this post feature for you. This post is for the people that are honest with themselves about why they shop at Costco. It’s not just about the great prices, it’s about all the amazing stuff. Stuff you can’t find anywhere else. Stuff that makes your life easier or more pleasant. Stuff you didn’t know you needed, however… until you went to Costco.
OK, now that you’ve gotten the gist, I’d like to share what I spotted during my trip yesterday.
This 2-pack of Seagate Back-up Hard Drives for $79.99 after instant manufacturer’s rebate seemed like a great price to me! I just purchased one for a bit more than that recently.
This deal really caught my eye! 32 Degree Heat Ladies or Men’s Long Sleeve Crew for just $6.99 after instant rebate. These are fitted, long sleeve base-layer style tops. I was actually looking for something like this to wear next week during the Seattle Half Marathon. My only complaint is they had lots of size L and XL, and I only found one S and just a few M. I snagged the last S at this price and hope they’ll restock more! I went to try it on, and then proceeded to wear it the rest of the day. I’m going to take it for a test run later this afternoon to see if it will work for my race.
Maybe if I had this porcelain bowl set ($18.99), I’d make French Onion Soup more. Mmmmm….
I’m trying to figure out the purpose of this, but then maybe I’m thinking too deeply. This LED Desk Lamp has a base that changes color. It’s $26.99. I kind of want it.
Here is a set of 5 project storage bins for $19.99. My first thought: LEGOS! I also think these would work well for storing craft supplies or projects that are in progress. Other possible ideas: first aid kids, coupons!, emergency kits, make up/toiletries. What are your ideas?
Guys! It’s a miracle! If you remember, I purchased three of these lights back in the summer. We love them. LOVE. And, they are only $34.99 which is a total steal if you’ve ever priced out outdoor lights like these. Well, we decided we wanted one more and guess what? They were out of stock! In fact, I was told they wouldn’t be carrying them again. I was resigned to “lesson learned” and I thought all hope had faded, when LO. They came back! My husband was thrilled! [Read more…]
