Thumbs up COSTCO GREAT FIND!! *Enabler Alert*

hey everyone! I was at my local Costco today in the Waltham, MA area and found this great Scrapbook set...it was HUGE!! I looked at all the stuff in it, and I'm thinking...this has got to be like $40-$50?? So I looked, and then looked...and then saw...it was only $14.96!!!! WOAH!!!! I scooped one right up and couldn't get over the price. Even the cashier was surprised. The set has LOTS of stuff including 2 albums, Primas, Chipboard, Brads, Eyelets, an entire CUTE Alphabet Stamp Set, 12x12 Album, Ribbon, Other embellishments and more. I took pics so that you guys can all see what it looks like in case you want to look for it at your local store! Even if I only use HALF of this stuff, it's still a STEAL!!

Some photos:

You got a great deal. Mine has not had them since Christmas and They were $40. If there were not many they may have been returned Items. Way to go I wish someone would return one to my store!

That's quite a haul for the money!! My Costco does not have this at all. They had huge rolls of wired ribbon and a crop a dile set. That's it. Just as well...

I actually live in Billerica

I work in Waltham though. So Costco is a great lunchtime stop for me. How weird is it that I don't go there too often, and the one time I do, I find this? The cashier said when they arrived, these sets were originally being sold at $60 - I've seen some of you say you got one for $40 - wow, they must really be trying to push them through for $15!

My hubby was so proud of my deal. I tried to tell him: "SEE...I can get really GREAT deals on craft supplies!" haha! now if only I was always this thrifty...

We let our Costco membership lapse as I didn't go there very much. Now I think I need to join again and try my luck at some SoCal stores!

What section of the store did you find this in? I only have BJs here but I'm wondering if they would sell something like this.

I found them in the office supply section...not in the aisle but more along the side wall of the store. There were quite a few left, I'd say about 10 or so.

So far the albums seem to be decent quality...they have a suede-like finish on the outside covers.

My husband is there now and said they are all out! Some lucky SCS must have gotten there today and cleared them out. Thanks for the heads up though!

Save yourself a trip! As I posted above, they are out. They said someone came in earlier and bought them all! I am so sad. I was so excited that my husband was flying up there on business today and he could get me one in each color (it was a small consolation for me being left behind while he got to visit all our family - we come from Waltham). Now I am just alone and sad and feeling sorry for myself! Sorry, the weather here is getting to me!

I'll check the Nashua Cosco this weekend. If they have them at that price, I'll pick some up. I didn't end up getting to Waltham last night cause the Wildtree Tasting went late , but from what you said I didn't miss anything so thats ok.

Its sunny and beautiful here in Mass today! Whoo hoo another day with no rain.

I have only a very small Costco and since this was a Christmas item, I am sure mine won't have any at all! However, they do have a pink handled Crop-o-dile with all these eyelets and huge rivets for $25 right now, that is a pretty good deal, right?
