Today (4/30) through Sunday (5/2), Old Navy is having 30% off EVERYTHING in store and select seasonal styles online. The online code is: ONBIG30

I used to work there so I know they can have some great things on clearance (especially for kids and babies) and with an additional 30% off, you could probably find some great deals!

Thanks My Frugal Adventures!

I really do love Costco.  Maybe it’s the $1.50 hot dog and pop (mmm pop, I gave it up for Lent and have been craving it more than ever) or the fact that I can get a $3,000 copper casket with champagne velvet interior  for when I die. I believe my obsession  love with Costco started at a young age when my mom would take my sister and I there every week for the family shopping trip.  I was so happy when they put in a Costco 10 minutes from my house last October (it doesn’t matter I work within 5 minutes of another one).  I really want to venture to the downtown Seattle warehouse sometime because it has a car wash.  I love the new Costco by my house because it has self check-out lines which no other Costco I have been to has.  I was there on Saturday and I’m happy to see they FINALLY brought back the 2.5 pound blocks of Tillamook Cheddar Cheese.  That pretty much made my day. 

 I had to go to the one by work to pick up a vacuum today (for work) when I was at the clothes section.  I happened to notice they had David Bitton Buffalo Jeans which I had heard were EXPENSIVE but well worth the price. There was NO way I was going to pay $100-120 for a pair of jeans in the store but $40 at Costco why not? After all, I have had only one pair that has fit me since the whole jean debacle.  Not being able to try them on and having no idea what size I was in inches I had to grab 3 pairs.  Sure enough, FINALLY a pair that fits!!  *Insert Angels singing from Heaven* 🙂 

I also have to say, when I got married, I ordered all of my roses through there and they were beautiful.  Also your gas stations are always the cheapest in town.  Ahhh Costco, I really do love you. 

P.S. You return policy rocks. 

P.P.S. I wish you would accept VISA.

I have such a hard time finding pants that fit that when I do, I tend to buy 2-3 pairs.  I have had the most luck at Banana Republic. The best part is, there is a Banana Republic Outlet about 15-20 minutes from where I live so I don’t have to pay $100 or so for a pair of pants.  Recently I was in need of some “nicer” looking jeans for work so I headed off to the store. I ended up finding a pair that I knew by the time I tossed them in the dryer, would be perfect in length (which they were). Me being logical thought, “I know the style and size I need so I’ll go back and grab two more pairs”. I tried them on at the store as I know that each pair of jeans can fit totally differently (nothing against factory workers in Macau but I don’t think quality control is their top priority).  Anyways, I washed the other two, and between three pairs of jeans, they all came out in different lengths even though they started out pretty much the same.  I washed them all in cold and for the same amount of time in the dryer.  One will be perfect and the others too long.  I guess I’ll just wait and hope they shrink up a little bit more (or wash them in warm water and hope they don’t shrink around the waist).  For now, I’ll be the girl on the street who looks like a geek with her jeans rolled up…
