Is it the weekend already??? I don’t know how that happens so quickly, I guess time flies when you’ve got cute cats!
Of course when the cats are all cute and squishy on the bed it becomes very difficult to actually get out of bed. However, one must get to Costco early-ish on Fridays because it can quickly fill up in there!
I was talking in Mondays Treasure Hunt post about how great it was to see the Spring/Summer seasonal items really starting to fill out the aisles, and today was no different as Costco had the Hyperlite infant, child, youth and adult PFD’s in stock.
I feel like these are usually in high demand later on in the spring, so if you think you’re going to be needing them I’d grab ’em now.
I’ve been singing the praises of the Feit electric LED string lights for a few years (at least) now, and they’re back!
While not on sale yet, these are great lights. We’ve had ours up outside for several years, straight through winter and they still work perfectly. They aren’t on sale yet, but thanks to our handy search feature I’ve found when they were on sale previously.
Yes they are $6.00 more expensive than last year, but with inflation, supply chain issues etc. that’s not a huge jump. That being said, maybe wait a few weeks and see if they go on sale!
The Promix organic vegetable & herb mix is another great deal at Costco, and at $17.99 for the 112L bale it’s $10.00 cheaper than at other box stores.
I used 3 or 4 (??? can’t remember!) of these last year in our vegetable boxes and I don’t know if you remember the size of the Tomatillo plants, and now I can’t find an appropriate picture, but they were at least 6 feet tall so I’d say this mix worked great!
If you’re interested in kitchen gadgets and implements of cooking magic, the Ninja indoor grill with smart probe is on sale for $30.00 off @ $169.99
This might be a great appliance for you if you don’t have the space for a grill, or you’re in an apartment building and can’t have a grill on your balcony. I’ve never used one of these before, does anyone have any experience with these?
Oh and that Unique 7 cu. ft. retro Blue bottom mount fridge is on sale for $150.00 off!
Pretty sweet folks, pretty sweet. It would require just the right kind of space for it to fit in properly with it’s surroundings, but in the right spot…
Well it’s Blue, but yes GOLD Jerry!
I’ve found myself once again eyeballing the Samsung “The Frame” 55″ TV.
I like the idea that you can change the “frame” on it.
Then put it into “art mode” and display (obviously) pictures of your cats.
And it’s got it’s cable concealed against the wall and all the connections in a separate box that isn’t a part of the TV itself, making it really flat to the wall.
Does anyone have one of these and care to share their experience with it?
I’m going to let you go here folks, have a great weekend and enjoy the weekend browse.
Maybe take a tip from Ewok and….
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.

So there you go, a little reading material for you.
Be kind, be safe and stay healthy!
The price at your local Costco takes precedent (or precedence) over the prices listed on this blog.
Costco liquidation/Manager’s Special items (ending in .97) vary from store to store.

Ewok looks pretty dramatic in front of that blue pot!
He is such a cutie.
Thanks for all the weekend shopping tips.
Haha, yes he is certainly dramatic… That is an understatement!
Fur babies look as cute as ever, they sure have a good life.
Thanks for the weekend update, much appreciated!
Stay safe and Costco on 🌻😎🌷
Thank you Lala Bay! Hope you are doing well and staying safe. Oh Ewok is living a good life indeed!
Thanks for your time and efforts, they sure are appreciated!
My pleasure, thank you Jan for your support and for coming to my defense! And your comments of course!
I really had to bite my tongue 😛 lol…..
Re Kitchen Lab Alfredo Sauce, discussed in the Nov 29th – Dec 5th 2021 post.
I’ve never had an Alfredo sauce I liked that wasn’t made fresh in a resto or at home so I was leery about this one when I saw it. But I decided to try it based on the positive comments in that post. Another case of to each his own for sure because I didn’t like it at all. I had to add a lot more freshly grated parmesan because I could barely taste it and, to be honest, if it was part of a blind taste test, I wouldn’t have identified it as Alfredo sauce. I used some of it mixed with a tomato sauce to make a rosé sauce but the rest of the jar has been in the fridge long enough now to be tossed.
So … I can find someone to give the other 2 jars to (so far 3 people weren’t interested), or return them. I bought them in December so it seems a bit late for that plus I don’t usually return items because they aren’t to my taste. Thoughts?
Hi Susan, I am totally in agreement with you about not returning a food item just because it’s not to my taste. I like the idea of being able to give it to someone who might make use of it, rather than just chucking it out. If it isn’t after the “best before date”, have you considered donating it to a local food bank?
Hi Susan, I don’t return food either just because I don’t happen to care for it…. not the store’s fault eh?!
Have you thought about donating the jars to a food bank rather than throwing them out?
I’m in a similar situation with some gingerbread ice cream sandwiches in my freezer that everyone else but me seemed to like 🙄😝. Lol but it’s kinda tough to donate frozen stuff! 😏🤷🏼♀️
Hi Jan – Thanks for replying. Yes, after asking a couple of family members who weren’t interested, I’ll either give it to our Barrhaven Food Bank or a smaller Barrhaven group I belong to that helps 30 food-insecure families each month.
Lesson learned – go with my gut (no pun intended) and don’t buy something I’ve not liked in the past just because others like it. We all have different taste buds and preferences. I too considered the gingerbread ice cream sandwiches – glad I passed on them as I likely would have the same issue as you. Well, except that my neighbour’s girls would be very happy to help me solve that problem!
You weren’t kidding when you said the Hyperlite pfd”s would sell quickly. Today, Markham Woodbine location was completely sold out of adults but has some for kids. Markham East had XL adults only and some for kids. I am looking for Small Adults. Does anyone know if Costco generally restocks this item given it’s not even spring yet? I didn’t get a chance to ask any Costco staff. Thank you.
Hi Lora, I can’t answer your question, but you might be able to find out if more are coming in by calling your local warehouse admin and giving the product number. I would try really soon, rather than wait until next week gets super busy.
Thanks for that great suggestion!
