Welcome back to the Treasure hunt Costco friends and family!
Hopefully you all remembered to set your clocks ahead?
While it does kinda suck to lose that hour of sleep it feels waaayyy better to have that extra hour of daylight. It makes it feel so much closer to spring and I’m sure we’re all ready for that to happen! (I mean technically spring is only 5 days away)
Lots of new sales at Costco this week and it was actually pretty mellow in the warehouse today. Though for some reason there’s always 2 or 3 aisles that wind up being a nightmare, and it seems to always be the clothing section and the aisle with the candy & protein bars/drinks. I have no clue why but those spots always just seem to get backed up, very odd. Does anyone else find that happens at your warehouses???
Why don’t we take a quick peek at some of the 148 sales this week.
Scoiattolo organic vegan ravioli 2 x 454g -$4.00 @ $9.99
Calvin Klein comforter set king 3pc. -$20.00 @ $74.99
Artika LED ceiling fixture Starraker -$7.00 @ $26.99
Braun thermoscan ear thermometer w/ back light -$12.00 @ $47.99
Ziploc Large ($13.99) & medium freezer bags ($11.69) , sandwich bags ($13.49) & the 58 piece variety container set ($11.99) are on sale right now so if you’re planning on doing any food portioning & freezing anytime soon this is a great time to stock up and save a few bucks!
Though I’m still waiting for the Food saver vacuum sealer to go back on sale…
That’s right Wayne, it will be mine… Next time it’s on sale folks, oh yes, it will be. Then I can portion ALL of the things and freeze them without getting freezer burn!!!
While not on sale this week has anyone here tried these 2 types of Gnocchi?
The Oliveri brand has been there for quite a while, but on Friday I noticed the new Scoiattolo brand. Just curious if there’s a consensus as to which one is better. I mean anything stuffed with cheese can’t possibly be bad right?
The Braun thermoscan ear thermometer is on sale right now as well for $47.99
It was pretty well exactly one year ago that the COVID-19 situation brought things to a halt, and the panic buying was out of control.
Those in ear thermometers, actually ALL thermometers were as highly sought after as toilet paper, lysol wipes & N95 face masks! It wasn’t actually until I noticed that thermometers were sold out everywhere that I realized we didn’t actually have one in the house!
So much for being prepared right?
I think I finally managed to get my hands on one in May or June last year at a shoppers drug mart.
It’s really crazy to think that it’s been a whole year of this craziness… Also crazy how fast time has gone by.
“My plan now is to finish the Jim Henson biography (half done, semi-forgotten about but also fantastic!), and then the Billy Joel autobiography (started, then put on the shelf for no valid reason… I love Billy Joel’s music, so no good reason to not finish the book. Sorry folks, but I have no excuses for that one.)”
Ahem… So I finished the Jim Henson Biography 6 or 7 weeks ago finally. The Billy Joel book is on the bedside table right now, still not finished. I’m terrible! I know some people devour books like I devour Cheetos, I guess I just don’t fall into that category. Do any of you have any favorite books that you’ve read over the last year?
I think I’ll leave it at that folks, I hope you have a great week and enjoy your Costco-ing!
Here’s some great news for those of you who are 60-64 and looking to get your first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine! You’re able to book an appointment now to get it at select Costco pharmacies! Right now it’s only at 6 Costco locations in Ontario but it’s something! (Click this link to go to the booking page)
Since we are in the second wave of COVID-19 I think it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the corona virus weeds yet, and each province has their own Health recommendations based on the provinces individual risk assessment and I would recommend that you follow the recommendations for your specific province. Information can be found at the following websites.
So there you go, a little reading material for you.
Be kind, be safe and stay healthy!
