Costco Trip

Since Reber Ranch didn’t have the chicks I wanted I decided to stop into Costco instead.  Costco with the twinadoes is always an adventure, not always a good one.  Seriously, they start grabbing stuff and before you know it I have two carts.  Oh, and fyi, if you find yourself in a similar situation needing two carts you can park the full one at the front and continue filling up the second and third cart.  Then when you go through check-out they will help you bring it all to your car, it’s quite nice actually.

Ok, so on to all the neat stuff I found…..

Gardening supplies have arrived!!!  I wish I had taken more pictures, but sometimes it’s difficult when I have the twinadoes with me.  Their plant selection was the one thing that was a little slim, but it’s still early in the season.  I did pick up the 9 pack of lavender, thought that was a great price.  I’m a big fan of the pots Costco carries, and their prices make them even more attractive, the blue ones were roughly $39 and the others were around $18.  For bulb fans, there was a quite a few, I picked up the peony and calla lilies.  Then there was this interesting pre-potted planter that you just add water.  I did not pick that up, but did find it interesting.  They also had hoses, tools, gloves, whirlygigs, and some yard art, which I’m sure varies a bit by store.

I was at the Covington Costco, they were having an in-store display of the Burlington shed and let me tell you I was really tempted.  For the price listed that includes them putting it together on your property.  He said that their size was small enough that you do not need a permit (but I would still check just to be safe).  If I had a spot ready for one this would have been highly considered.  The display was so neat, and even had a loft.  Someday….

All the pools, water toys, goggles, etc.. were also in.  We took home this pool since the twinadoes love them.

Are these helpful to have?  The Drunken Breeder is in love with this thing.  I’m not so sure I’m sold.

I really want another hot plate, but want to do a little more research on this one.  I want one that heats up well and isn’t super fussy.  Maybe then I’d do a live cooking show…..

I thought this was a good price for rugs this size, really liked the few grey ones they had.

I had read that they were carrying organic ginger…. and they were.  I picked up some of this.

And who leaves Costco without some alcohol and snacks?  I picked up a bunch of snacks for the twinadoes’ class to have in the afternoons as well as these little popcorn carrots for me.  The wine was definitely one I’ll buy again.

By the end of our trip we were all ready to get the heck out of there.  But overall we had a fun time looking at all the neat stuff and just doing the Costco thing.  Have any of you found any neat stuff at Costco lately?
