Keeping Celery Fresh And Crisp In Aluminium Foil

We were always buying the big bags of celery available at Costco but rarely finishing it before it went soft and brown. Eventually we figured out that wrapping the chopped and cleaned celery in foil would help it keep in the fridge for up to a month so now we always have a supply on hand. Here are some how-to's we have found that show you exactly what to do. Keep Celery Fresh For Weeks on Instructables. RVgeeks tips on YouTube for how they keep celery fresh: And here is a list of recommended storage methods for celery and other [...]

Can You Beat Costco For Beats By Dr Dre Studio Headphones

Coscto Australia look like they have an awesome price on Beats By Dr Dre Studio headphones. The price on the floor at Ringwood was $144.99, but they only have red left. I know that they also had blue on the floor when they release the stock at both Docklands and Ringwood so there may be some blue left elsewhere. Looking around at the competition's websites, Harvey Norman lists them at $299 and JB HiFi has them showing as $383.20. Officeworks does show them as being under $100 for some colors but the website does not show any stock at any stores local to me. Even Kogan has their best price as $279 and that is for pink, the red will cost you $319 there plus [...]

These are around $22 per 305g pack at Coles and Woolworths so Costco has them at less than one quarter of the price. Raid One Shot Target [...]

The Joys of Kirkland Pure Maple Syrup and Pecans

I recently discovered the joys of Costco Bakery's Maple Pecan Strudels. This led to the purchase of almost a kilo of Kirkland Pecans and a 1litre jug of Kirkland Pure Canadian Maple Syrup to experiment with at home. The first recipe I decided to try was a simple one, requiring just a couple of minutes prep and 5-8 minutes of baking. Spiced Maple Glazed Pecans There are loads of variations on this recipe which I am yet to try but this time I stuck with quick and easy. Mix 2:1 maple syrup and unsalted melted butter in a deep bowl (I used about 2 tablespoons maple syrup) with sprinkle of salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste. Toss pecans through mix until compleatly coated (I added a few at a time till most of the liquid was gone) then pour onto a baking tray [...]

Mobile Phones For Sale At Costco Australia

On our trip to Costco's Ringwood Warehouse today I noticed they now stock the recently released Samsung Galaxy S5. It was hard to miss as the product cards, those are the thing you grab to take to the check-out for some high value items at Costco, as were right by the entrance. Since Costco has been consistently stocking a small range of unlocked mobile phones in their Australian stores for about a year now I thought it was worth putting together a list. Based on my visit to Costco Ringwood these are the phones they currently have in stock: Samsung Galaxy S5 - $879.99 Samsung Galaxy S4 - $624.99 ($35 off, normally $625.99) including S-View cover Samsung Galaxy S4 Active - $489.99 ($60 off, normally 549.99) Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo - $109.99 Nokia Lumina 625 - [...]
