I bought one of the 60x70 Ultimate sherpa throws last weekend to surprise my wife. She came along today, we now have a second Ultimate, and a queen sized one as well. She thinks we need to buy more as Christmas gifts as well.

No poo poo, if I want to go to my Costco on a weekend, I've got to be there when it opens. Mid-afternoon, the place is an unbearable madhouse.

Went to a different Costco today and got another queen and king Sherpa (we have three total now). Also got a new shark vacuum 30$ off, a new outdoor LED porch light for 8$ and a bunch of laundry detergent. This Costco had chili at the food court so I got that and a dog and made a chili dog. Costco is always coming up with new ways to surprise me. PBUC.

Let me know how that shark vacuum is, i'm in the market for a new vacuum and that looks pretty nice.

I've had a Shark for 5 years that I bought at Costco, and I love it. I can only imagine that they have gotten better since then.

There’s two brands I think.

They have had a few different brands of "ridiculously soft blankets that cats love" over the years. In addition to my Sherpa, I bought one that is low-pile (no "fleece"), and it's just as soft and cozy as the Sherpa. If anything, the cat likes that one better.

I have the Ultimate Sherpa and it's great. It was only $15. How much are you guys paying for the other brand?

The one we got was the navigator lift-away Shark. I like it so far. It is definitely better than our old Hoover wind tunnel. The detachable lift-away canister is nice for stairs or high places. The wheels are nice and swively and it is easy to maneuver. Dust disposal is also easy. The only weird part is the extension arm and pet brush accessories don't have a storage spot on the vacuum itself. Overall it seems to be worth the 120$.

The giant king size one was $25 I think. Maybe the Queen was $20.

Will this so called Shark vacuum handle the hair from a great pyrennes dog? I ask specifcally regarding the hair length and volume, had another vacuum burn out the wheel after the axle got jammed with dog hair.

i can confirm its good, it usually gets my dogs hair

the one thing i really really miss from the hoover i had (also from costco several years ago) is it had that self-winding coil thing where you step on a paddle and it winds it up, also easy to pull out. that thing was soo nice. i wish shark would copy that feature :(

I still have to have two fans blowing at me to get a decent night's sleep, so sadly I won't be having any use for the coveted Sherpa Throw this year.

However, I bought my first new car on Saturday. Then on Sunday I went to Costco and bought a set of Goodyear floor matts for $15. And then at the register, they took another $4 off. PBUC!

I posted this awhile back but I tried to buy a rotisserie chicken near closing and the manager walked by at checkout and was like "WHAT THE HELL" and said they couldn't sell me the chicken. I asked why.

They said it was too small and he ran all the way back to get a fresh plump chicken for me and apologized. They understand the importance of the rotisserie chicken. PBUC.

Stopped in to buy a couple bottles of wine for a gift and ended up in line behind an Asian lady who was buying 15 of each size of each product in the 32 Heat line, like 120 items, and loudly insisting that the ďlimit 15Ē applied to each barcode. She was unsuccessful. Donít try to defraud the Costco, lady!

Speaking of item limits, last time the Kirland Signature brand baby wipes were on sale I bought the maximum of 2 boxes three weeks in a row. Waiting a week to hit the limit's alright, right?

Yesterday I bought one of the Queen size plush blankets and it absolutely blows the Sherpa away. It says Queen size, but the loving thing dwarfs my Queen size bed. Itís super warm, but it breathes, so you donít get all sweaty and gross underneath it. I had so much trouble getting out of bed this morning, I just wanted to live underneath that blanket forever.

Bought enough candy in the form of Kirkland variety bags for $30 to give to 100 trick-or-treaters. We'll be lucky if we get 25 tonight. Do I return the second bag after Halloween like a dick, or do I get fat on candy? Decisions, decisions.

Give kids massive handfuls of candy. Last year we ended up reverse trick or treating and walked around the neighborhood giving candy away.

Basically this. I have way more than I need to just give one or two out. I tell kids to pick and then act mad that they didn't take more, while giving them another handful.

The Kirkland brand blankets? I got one of those before reading about the Sherpa. Can concur it is huge, It dwarfs my super king bed and weighs more than my 13tog duvet. It is the best.

The wife is pregnant so is constantly hot and needs the fan on, and sleeps without any sheets. I sleep with the blanket folded over double and then another blanket on top.

the "new" Kirkland light beer tastes different, IDK if I like it as much but it's by the same brewer and seems to have more flavor so I'm warming up to it I guess. Also it's slightly cheaper iirc, 21.99 for 46 beers that are superior to bud light/equal quality :shrug:
