OH was at the visitor point today from 12 - 4pm. I had an email from my friend, she is on days off so she came over for a coffee and then we took off to Costco. I had never been there before although I used to go to Macro years ago.
A big warehouse with lots of goodies, I had a good look round and bought 7 thick prok chops and 4 smoked haddock fillets. I also bought 4 pairs of thick socks 2 for OH and 2 for me.
The yearly fee for Costco is £25 I am just trying to work out if I would save enough to justify the £25 and also the cost of travelling to the store. I must admit the huge bag of toilet rolls seemed to be a good buy.
The chops (7) cost £8.38 they are almost twice as thick as the ones I buy from Aldi at £1.99 for 2 so enough chops for 3 unday supper and one that can be diced and cooked for pork and bean casserole, not a bad buy.
The haddock was £6.41 which works out at £3.20 for two fillets which will make a really nice supper or lunch for us, different to the piece of haddock I bought from Tesco a few weeks ago, one piece which I cut in half was just over £4.
The socks came out at £3 15 a pair after VAT was added.
I would like to go again and have a really good look.
I got the bag out with the left over Christmas stuff in and also the box of christmas fabric, I need to go through and see what fabric I have and what I can make. Could do with some ideas. I will be making a couple of the small Christmas tree wall hangings that I made last year and also some stockings using calico as a base and covering them with either strips or crazy patchwork.
We were late eating tonight, macaroni cheese with tomato and celery salad, Oh had poached rhubarb I had an apple.
