A staple of my diet has been Costco Kirkland’s Turkey Burgers but I can’t find them at Costco anymore. I asked a rep at the store and he said that they didn’t carry them anymore! So Costco stops selling Apple products and now they stopped selling Kirkland turkey burgers, I’m starting to get disappointed.
In other news, I continue to be amazed at the cost of meat products. Beef is costing more and more every time I go to the grocery store and it’s bad enough I pay $30/lb for Kobe beef but to pay $8/lb for almost everything else is pretty ridiculous!
In other news, I’m starting to buy groceries online from Amazon.com. I started out with a four boxes of cereal to be delivered to my home every other month and I’ll see how that goes for a few months. I don’t think I’ll save too much money buying online vs. the grocery stores but the extra benefits add up such as:
a. I won’t have to drive to the grocery store to buy cereal for the kids which means I save on gasoline as I get free delivery. I also don’t pay sales tax!
b. I will save time by not having to waste time driving to the store and waiting at the check out.
c. If this works well, I may begin to expand to canned goods to save on more gasoline and time.
The world is indeed becoming more efficient and I think online grocery shopping is the wave of the future. I’m waiting for a “grocery app” to bring it all together and voila!
