At last around here, the free sample people don't work for Costco.

And of course, nobody around to ask. The food sample people probably have no idea.
Try COSTCO online, I think they have free shipping, also try Jet.com.

Thanks, AB, that was to be my next step. It's a travesty, I tell ya!

I have a few 15 packs left, and I rip the wipes in half, so they're good for 30 days.

Good idea!

I keep a pack of them in the drawer of the end table in my living room next to the recliner. Nice for a quick facial wipe before I inevitably fall asleep.

Like you I've been doing the same for a few weeks. Binging and tossing out things is much easier when I can do it alone. Were up to at least 2 dump runs, and have about $200.00 in recyclables to be turned in.

When I've had the time I've been planting flat after flat of free flowers and plants. I think more is heading my way today. The plants and flowers that didn't sell are being given away. They've remembered my fessing up to my mistake a few weeks ago and have been telling my son to fill up the cars trunk with what it can hold. "Your Mom will love them!"
Gee thanks Wally...?

I have 8 Rosy Glow Barberry bushes to plant and it's raining. Looks like I'm getting a shower whether I want one or not. The front flower bed is almost done, found a penstemon and two anemones. Also going to plat a Flowering Almond. Then I have a backyard full of weeds to kill. All this after I run into town for my prescriptions...and I slept in today.

I don't know why I do that...when I'm planning on being gone from the house for more than a few days I feel like I've got to clean and purge. Next thing you know I'll be leaving a note for my survivors to delete my browsing history on my laptop.

Glad you got to sleep in today Princess, and it sure sounds like you've been busy in the yard of your new home. Glad the weather has been cooperating at least a little. Flowering Almonds are SO pretty!

Huh. Upon further inspection, the familiar blue box facewipes are now in lavendar boxes, and people are not happy. Though apparently it's the same formula, just a different color. I ordered some from Costco with free shipping.

....saying goodbye to this forum - time to move on to where appreciation of organic food is not given such a hard time!

Thanks to all those that have supported me here e.g. via likes and PMs.
