12 hr day one down, one to go

One thing about being super busy.. 12 hours goes by pretty darn fast.

Thus far I have put in 25.9 hours on the next paycheck, and it's only Monday.

At this rate, not including any days that I *might* go over on time due to being caught on a long call at quitting time, I will have 21.9 hours of overtime this week. Yes, that's on one week.


I leave you this interesting article on the sekrit Costco pricing code. Handy to have if, like me, you tend to buy and fall in love with items that are promptly discontinued. This way, we know ahead of time.

Thank you for the Costco shopping guide! We had similar designations at CompUSA, so I know this sort of pricing notation exists, but it's impossible to know what the codes are for other stores. I wonder what the code is for seasonal things (like capers).

I found this info elsewhere that sort of covers that:

An asterisk means that product has been "deleted" and it won't be restocked on a regular basis. Sometimes that means Costco couldn't get the same product at the same purchase price, or it didn't sell very well, or a repackaging is coming. After the warehouse sells the product it has on hand in the store it won't be restocked, so the average shopper should take it as "get it now because that's all there is." HOWEVER, in some cases these "deleted" items will reappear, particularly if they are seasonal items like holiday wrapping paper, beach towels, or potato salad. The items will sell out from current stock at the warehouse and be deleted, but they will probably reappear next year during the appropriate season. So if you want it before another year rolls around, then get it now. Or else you can risk that it will be back next year. It all depends how well the product sold that season.

I also found this article with more info.
