So today I spent most of the unemployment check and non-sleep time on the Brave Little Toaster; took it to Jiffy Lube and got the oil changed along with the front wipers and air filter, and they threw in the fluid topoffs, window washing, and floor vacuuming as they usually do. Since I'm not a complete bastard, I stopped at the dumpster and emptied out the sizable collection of bottles, cans and miscellaneous trash in the back seat and cargo bay. Holy crap. That took about 45 minutes and filled five kitchen-sized trash bags along with four smaller grocery bags. This ought to do wonders for the gas mileage and make more appropriate room for groceries.

Speaking of which, most of the remainder of my cash was spent on a Costco membership, which may or may not have been wise; I would like to be a little more organized about my food buying/cooking/eating, and buying meat/cheese/dairy product/nuts in bulk at Costco strikes me as one way to do this. We'll see how that works out. I was tempted to go with Sam's Club, but unfortunately those are in the boonies relative to where I live (Woodbridge and Sterling) whereas there are Costco locations much closer. (Pentagon City?!?!) Maybe they'll also have Utz pork rinds, now that Harris Teeter has become erratic about carrying them again.

Costco is a great idea, and well worth membership.

But it would be nice if there was a "50 Items or Less" line.
