The lure of Costco

January 6th, 2009 at 08:09 pm

So I talk to DH this morning. We need milk, orange juice (since I am now getting his illness) and half and half.

What does he come home with:
The 2 gallons of OJ-check.
1/2 gallon of half and half-check.
but also:
Tub of chicken noodle soup-$9.99
2 doz eggs -$3.19 AND
Pork Twists??? Dog treats- $9.99

He claims to only "tolerate" the dogs! Ha, as if, he spoils them worse than I do.

He stopped at Safeway and got 1/2 gallon of milk, since I am sick, 2 gallons from Costco seemed a bit much when it was dated January 10th.

I wish I could make myself do the shopping....

Okay for full disclosure, he took out $100.00 cash and spent $40.37, which means we still have approximately $60.00 to last the until next Tuesday. And the dog treats actually go into the pets category, not food, which means we really have $70.00. We had the chicken soup for dinner and it was delicious with plenty for another meal or two.

I pulled out a plain envelope and put the rest of the cash in it.

I am determined to stick to this even with his impulse purchases.

    I guess if worst came to worst you could chew on the dog treats?? Just kidding!! Stick Out Tongue His heart was in the right place, give him time (and only a $20 bill next time!!)

    Well, if you are sick, the chicken noodle soup could be seen as a nice, caring gesture.

    P.S. - The pups are darling.

    He was showing he was thinking of you with the soup, but I understand the frustration. Your pups are adorable!!

    oh my, my husband is the same way with our dogs. He says our beagle gets on his nerves but he sure does spoil him. He was upset this Christmas when the animals had no presents to "unwrap." He also can't go to sleep unless Maxwell the beagle is on the end of the bed!
