How is the sherpa throw when it comes to fuzzes shedding off the thing after a wash or two?

I've never been able to find a fuzzy blanket similar that doesn't shed tons of fuzz.

Costco has an incredible deal on Glenlivet right now.

A pack of 3 full size bottles: the 12, 15, and 18 year for $99 total.

So good. It also comes in a wack rear end wooden box if you're into that kind of thing (personally it enrages me because it's just complete waste of materials but whatever).

~~**fartz**~~ loving texas moon laws prevent our Costcoís from selling liquor, they only have a liquor store thatís run by some 3rd part that they rent the space too

thatís a great deal

Smoked salmon also freezes amazingly well, which changed the game for our household because we could never use it fast enough before. We get the 2 pack of Kirkland norway salmon. Nice light smoke and tender.

O gently caress thatís a game changer. I never thought to freeze it, and passed over it because just two of us would never finish it

...What?

It's pretty simple, insurance is great when the thing you're insuring against constitutes a major hardship should that thing come to pass.

For that reason a warranty on a TV is, mathematically speaking, worth very little. It just is. I don't know what else to say.


Totally. Something I learned recently is that Amazon will sometimes do this even if you're out of the return window. I ordered an amp, it broke outside the return window, the merchant basically said tough poo poo, and Amazon just cross shipped a new one no questions ask. They're pretty cool, for being, you know, the devil.

Thatís because amazon doesnít give a gently caress about their sellers (or anyone lol), they just stick that refund cost to the merchant anyway.

I wear merino wool socks year round. They wick sweat away, although my feet don't really sweat. But they breath nicely.

I also wear jeans year round.

Yea I wear them year round too, even in Texas summer. You would think by the end of the day the sock would be soaked in sweat, but it never happens. Thin white cotton normal socks come off smelly as hell but the merino wool ones donít. i donít ask any questions, and just wear the wool ones

I love the bizarre early nature of how Costco stocks some of their seasonal stuff, especially furniture.

Itís 40 degrees outside and my Costco is loving packed with outdoor patio furniture sets. Come April, when itís 70 degrees, it will probably be replaced with Halloween decorations.

I deeply regret not splurging on heated floors during my remodel.

you can get vent fans for bathrooms that both suck out humid air and also have a heater that blows hot air in so your bathroom is nice and toasty when you get out of the shower, its dope.

Yeah but if you don't have one now (me) you have to have a professional install it and drill a whole vent through your house.

That's one of the first things I wanted when I moved into my house. A bathroom vent fan. That and also a garbage disposal. But I'd need an electrician to come over to install some sort of outlet under my sink because nothing is there. And that sounds expensive.

yea you probably don't want to homebrew install it. probably a couple hundred bucks for someone to put it in. but definitely cheaper than the in-floor heating the previous goon was talking about. i actually considered floor heating in a bathroom remodel but the cost was wild.

tbf "you're insane if you don't buy all your meat at costco" is a dumbo thing to say

2.99/lb chicken breasts in 6 packs vs 1.99/lb all day every day at kroger, and i very frequently find other meats cheaper in kroger/meijer as well like ground beef, pork shoulder, pork loin. costco does sales on these comparatively infrequently

i buy the 6 packs anyway bc they're real convenient to cut apart and freeze but i'm apparently as dumb with money as you are

also PBUC

1.99/lb chicken breasts at kroger? are you posting from 2002?

im legit very envious of those prices

Should I buy furniture from Costco? Is it good quality and good value like the food? I'm thinking a sofa, bed, and some garden chairs. Despite being a grown up I've never bought good, new furniture before.

If you can buy it in store and pick it up yourself, yea it can be a good deal. If you order it online they add like $100 plus delivery ontop of the in store price.

I've got a dinning table set, leather recliner and some other stuff from Costco. It seems pretty legit, people are usually surprised when I tell them its from Costco too

ill never understand the costco gas lines

lets say i have some crazy job where i drive 8 hours all day, and i have to get gas every single day

assuming:
costco gas is an insane $.20/gal cheaper
18 gallon tank
fillup everday
= $3.60 savings per tank
= $18 a week
= $72 a month

considering most people I see in line are just average people filling up their family suv I don't believe anyone is even close to this level of savings. $72 dollars a month is a meaningful amount of money to a lot of people, but not to the people in costco gas lines

This has been covered but your ďinsaneĒ 20c cheaper needs to be doubled at minimum. Mine is frequently in the 50-60c cheaper range. I donít get it either but the numbers donít lie.

And Iím already at Costco so the opportunity cost is waiting for like 5, maybe 10 minutes. Itís nothing. Why not, at that point?

Dang thatís a pretty huge discount. Around here Iíve never seen it so much lower, usually itís only like 10cents. Pretty wild how much it varies.

Are the Kirkland Merino Wool Blend socks both warm and comfortable?

Anyone try these?: https://www.costco.com/bula-polartec-convertible-balaclava%2c-2-pack.product.100431547.html

I bought a pair each of the 32 Degrees thermal tops and bottoms off the website, and they're pretty nice, so I've already ordered two more pairs of both.

I've got a ton of the Wool Blend Outdoor one (I think the outdoor ones are a little different) and they are great, not too thick but not too thin
