Website of the week
There are many reasons to love Costco. Yes, it's an upscale alternative to Sam's Club, but even more importantly, Costco treats their employees well. Unlike Wal-Mart. I had no idea Costco had a website until I read about it on the excellent Closet Therapy, but now that I've been to it, I'm sold. You need to purchase a $45 yearly membership in order to buy anything, but I think it's well worth it, considering how much money you're saving. For example, this Cartier Tank Americaine watch is $12,749.99, which seems expensive, but considering it retails for $16,500 (and never goes on sale), I think that's a pretty good deal. Or how about a YSL Borsa Venise bag for a mere $800? For the beauty buffs, there's Kinerase cream for $20 off; you can even buy art, like this signed Toulouse-Lautrec lithograph, which seems seriously undervalued at $2849.99. Not that I plan on buying any of these items, mind you, but it's fun to dream. And it's certainly more fun than browsing 10-lb. tubs of pretzels at Sam's Club.
