Well it must be Monday, and another batch of Costco Sales items has come our way.
***Just a quick note before we dive in here, and most of you know this already; if there is a specific item you see on this blog that you are interested in, always call to check pricing and inventory levels at the Costco warehouse you intend to shop at. Take a look at the F.A.Q. for some more info about this***
I’m not gonna lie, I bought a box of Halloween candy (It was on sale and my favorite variety, The Nestle 120 variety box for $4.00 off @ $15.99)
And… Well, they didn’t make it farther than the passenger seat before they got broken into.
Pretty sure I ate 7 of them before I got home, and then a few more once I got in… There is no way this box is going to last until Halloween folks… Just no way.
Otherwise a pretty standard shopping day, I tried to keep myself reigned in… A box of frozen sausage patties that I’m very curious to try (add 2 eggs sunny side up, hash browns and some baked beans??? Sounds like a greasy breakfast deserving of a nap!) A nice big block of Parmesan, Those little Wholly Guacamole organic mini’s packs (I hate the packaging but man is it ever good and convenient as all hell! I made toast and spread a package on as soon as I got home!) Which are on sale right now for $3.50 off @ $9.99
I did notice that today was one of those days where the “shopping cart traffic” in Costco was obscene… Again, lanes should be painted and traffic cops should be present as spacial awareness amongst us seems to have vanished.
Something like this would probably work great! And provide some much needed comic relief while overlooking the overflowing cart!
A few other notable sales happening this week would be the Huggies natural care baby wipes (1152 wipes) on sale for $6.50 off at $19.99. So much like the Huggies Diapers that were on sale last week, if you have a need for these puppies stock up now ’cause these sales are few and far between… You’ll likely be waiting months for this to come back.
There’s also a great deal on for Google home products (if that’s your thing) If you buy a Google Nest Hub and a Google Home Mini it’s $166.99 VS. a google hub on it’s own for $166.99 and waiting and buying Google Home mini for $78.99, what I’m getting at is buy a Google Nest, get a free Google Home Mini. That’s all I’m saying. I’m still not quite sold on this remote control home thing yet, so count me as standoff-ish about these. (I can change my mind later)
Also be on the lookout for a few Costco Executive member sales this week (also don’t forget to bring those coupons with you Executive members!!!)
Here’s the Kingston Meat Department sales this week.
And some Bakery sales?!?! Heck ya!!!
One other thing I’ve been looking at getting for the new house is one of these Germ Guardian things…
After moving we had to relocate our kitty litter boxes into out new laundry room which has zero ventilation. So as you can imagine, it gets a little stinky. I’m wondering if this would help to combat that at all… Anyone have one of these, or have any advise otherwise??? As you know I’m always open to, and looking for comments; so please let me know what you do at home to combat kitty litter box smells.
Speaking of smells, the good kind that is (and tastes!) we made some delicious Thai red curry stir fry tonight.
And made good use out of the Cast Iron Wok I got from Costco a few months ago. (absolutely love that pan by the way!)
Chopped Red Onion, Red and Green peppers, broccoli, diced ginger & garlic, green beans and limes plus tamari/sesame oil marinated chicken breasts and of course cilantro. Add in Some coconut milk and Thai red curry (Not home made, cheated tonight) and some jasmine rice… Delicious!
As you can see in the first picture I’ve got everything pre-chopped and portioned in separate bowls. As someone who worked in kitchens for a while, this is what makes the cooking part easy. The prep is done, the bowls are lined up in the order they need to get to the pan in, so it’s really just an assembly line at that point… Add bowl 1 cook ’till done, then add bowl 2 cook till ready for bowl 3 etc. etc etc. It’s a great way to take the pressure out of cooking, just get everything ready and prepped ahead of time and then you can enjoy the cooking process. Plus if you do a lot of prep earlier you can wash most of the dishes so there is less clean-up after dinner; and that’s always a plus!
Anyhow I think as much as I’d like to ramble on about the benefits of food preparation at home, I think I ready for some bed preparation.
I’ll have more to share with you this week, but in the mean time Good night folks!
