I needed to go. There were things that I needed to get from there. There were COUPONS to be used! And I also took the newest member of our family, Brutis. Keep an eye out for THAT post.
So. Costco cost me about $200 more than I anticpated. AND I did not get everything on the list. Some things seemed to be a little more expensive than I remembered.

Ok, so some of this is excessive. The tenderloin is for our friend who loaned us their trailer to get the washer & dryer from Orlando a few weeks ago.
The vitamins ($130 total) ae a 6 month plus supply (I HOPE). The Sam-E stuff is experimental, and I really should of only bought one but wanted to be sure I used my valuable coupon. If not working, I will return the other package. These are to improve MOOD and promote healthy joint health. Triple Flex is like the Osteo Bi-Flex but triple strengthy. Hubby swears by that stuff so lets see if this stuff works. With the coupons it was much cheaper than anywhere else.
As the boats back in the water AND it's getting to be peak hurricane season soon, there were a few things that I needed, wet wipes, plastic cups, plates, foil pans, garbage bags, and such.
Celsius. Not much to say. I like the taste of the stuff, and suppose to burn upward of an additional 100 calories. Its really just another energy drink that has 0 calories, 0 grams of carbs, etc. And I like it (the orange gives me a sweet tooth satisfaction)
No junk food really as you can see. Of course, Sonny Boy is like wheres the chips, jelly beans, bread, etc. Sorry kid, I went by myself and stuck to the list!
OH - the eggs. Look at that. 3 dozen EXTRA large eggs for less $1 a dozen? Holy Moley! I'm seeing lots of eggs in my near future!
