No more Costco Oatmeal!!!!!!!!



Why am I so sad?  Well folks I am holding one of the remaining 3 boxes that I bought today at Costco during a routine oatmeal pickup.  Ladies and gentleman, I saw to my horror an asterisk next to the price display.  (If you are a Costco expert like me then you know an asterisk means discontinued) the tragic fact is that Costco has decided not to renew their supply of this life giving Oatmeal.  So tomorrow, I am going to go to multiple Costcos in the valley and buy up all the remaining stock....I potentially could spend over 100 dollars tomorrow just on Oatmeal.  And I need your help...please if you want to do something nice for a needy person, if your in Costco, buy some Oatmeal for me eh?  I'll pay you back....the brand is 

Kirkland Signature
Organic Instant Oatmeal (variety pack)

Thanks and happy holidays!!!!

P.S.  The existing stock says best if used by June of 2011...so buy away people!!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

WHY!?!? WHY??!?! WHY?!?!?

Is this some sort of cruel hoax the universe is playing on us? WHY?!?

Alas! Despair... I faint.... I slip into the darkness.... I embrace the cold and accept my fate... loneliness is a friend that I wear like a blanket...

Gar,

Just picked up 16 boxes. Each box has 45 packets. 16 X 45 = 720 servings. Should tide you over for a while.

Going to Costco on Friday for party shopping. Will check for oatmeal. You need a little sign that says, "Will work for Costco oatmeal." You could put a before and after picture of yourself on it. As a matter of fact, you should write to Costco/Kirkland and tell them your story. You could become a star. Reallllly, I am serious. You look mahvelous, darling!
Love,
Grandma Dee

Gee, Garrett...this goes to show that I need to check your blog EVERYDAY!!! Jeff has gone down TWICE in the last two days to get extra pictures of the boys to enclose in our Christmas cards, and he could have picked some oatmeal up. (If Dennis hasn't cleaned out our Capo Beach store already!:)
I know how you feel, though. Costco doesn't carry this amazing raspberry chipolte sauce anymore and I am devastated!!
Love you, Mom
