I thought I didn't like Costco anymore. I was wrong.
I went for batteries, contact lens solution, notepads and a few other items. I bought those items and more! Yes, I spent more than I planned to, but I just don't care! (That's part of the evilness of wholesale clubs--they must put something into the HVAC system that entices you to spend more money and diminishes any regrets about doing so. Deeeep breath, aaaahhh!)
- Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2006--$13.99 a bottle. I've been paying $16-19. It's my absolute favorite wine and I just about squealed out loud when I saw it. (But I had to maintain my dignity on behalf of my children.) I bought 9 bottles. Oh yes I did. Yes.
- Veronica Mars--seasons 1 & 2, $21.99 each. So glad we turned down the $45 that Best Buy wanted for season 1. Eek!
- Baby wipes--the giant box--$19
- Pull-ups--the giant box--$25--unheard of at the grocery store
- Extra pillows--2 for $9
With the exception of Veronica Mars, I bought nothing that we wouldn't normally get at the grocery store or Target.
Obviously, I'm still feeling all swoony. I don't think I should go back for a loooong while, otherwise I'm afraid that I will go completely nuts and get some new bookcases and a spiffy television. And more wine.
ETA: I just realized that $13.99 a bottle is cheaper than the per bottle rate I paid when I bought a case of the 2005 last year. And here I've been regretting not getting a case of the 2006 (which is better)! Please, make it stop.
