Cold and damp today, getting colder as the day goes on. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it. Like a lollypop on a car seat… Yesterday was mostly foggy until mid morning, then overcast with occasional sun, and plenty of humidity. Rained after dark and temps dropped from mid-60s to 45F at 1230am…
Took D1 to the Costco with me after school. Spent some time explaining what we were looking for, what the meat costs and why, and what to look for. Did some math (of a sort) looking at prime steak vs choice and the price difference (for only $2/pound extra we got the prime.) Selection was very limited. Grabbed a lamb boneless leg roast, that I’ll divide into two meals, left the rib chops as too expensive. Hamburger was $3.99 for 88-12%. They didn’t have any chicken but organic. They did have “party wings” in the cooler with the other chicken parts though. Haven’t seen that in a while. In the dairy case, no cream at all. No empty pallet either, so they didn’t have any when they set for the day. Regular milk was just a half pallet. Plenty of soy and almond based ‘not’ milk though. But no cream.
They’ve also spread out the shelves in the cleaning supplies/diapers/TP area. I think they took out a whole row, but the stocker wouldn’t confirm or deny it. Plenty of TP and even some bleach based cleaning products. Lots of extra room between the rows.
It wasn’t crowded, and most of the people at checkout had several flats of water in their carts. Not me though, just TP and food. Prices were up on a lot of stuff. Rice at 70c/# to 90c/pound, up from 50c, pancake mix went from $6/6# to $6.89 for the same bag.
Today D1 has an orthodontist appointment in mid morning, so that will mess up my schedule (I forgot about it when I moved my pickups to today.) I’ll have to muddle through though, I guess. More driving and running around. At least I won’t have to hump half a van load of GS cookies…
Get out and get some stuff, then stack it high. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
