There's Something To Be Said For Procrastination

Crap. Crap, crap, crappity, crap!

Why can't I put things off like a normal person? Why must I always get everything taken care of "right away"? I just moved and one of the things I wanted to do was to get a Costco membership to start saving some money. I get all set up and take care of applying for membership almost immediately. As expected, I got my card in the mail 7-10 days later and I was all thrilled to get in there and buy in bulk.

But I'm an idiot. An eeeeediot!

If I had waited a mere two weeks to do this, I could have saved myself 35 smackeroos for my first year's membership as I was a new member. You see, Costco is having a promotion for new members where they can get their membership for the first year for $10 instead of the usual $45.

Two. Weeks.

Okay so $35 doesn't sound like a lot of money but that's my electricity bill for one month. Or a tank of gas. Or a night on the town. Or a nice dinner. But nooooooo. I had to go and be all efficient.

Fine. If I can't have that savings, maybe some of you can. Follow the link, open the PDF file, print it out, take the coupon to your nearest Costco, hand them $10, get your photo taken and proceed to buy $35 worth of stuff while laughing in my general direction. Sigh.

I wish my electricity bills were only $35. I'm jealous.

Don't worry. You won't save any money at Costco. But will come home with more pickles and mayo than you will ever need in your lifetime. :-)

Do you live in the dark? My electric bill usually runs about $80/month
