Fuzzy Animal Stride Rite Children's Slippers at Costco

These fuzzy Stride Rite kid's slippers are a big hit with the granddaughters.  Currently, $9.99 at Nashville Costco, the slippers are on sale for $3.00 off from November 21 until November  26.

Emmie is especially happy with them.

Nashville Costco has four styles: sweet bunny rabbit, bright pink horse, alligator claws, and shark. No comment on the gender stereotyping.

Costco, Decision Fatigue, and Mental Rest

My new realization is that Costco membership has an underappreciated benefit -the ability to limit making decisions.

Decision fatigue can be just as exhausting as physical fatigue and sometimes worse.

Since I read about the study in Israel showing judges made better decisions earlier in the day, I've become more and more aware of how exhausting the act of choosing can be. I can feel it, if I spend too long shopping I start to loose focus the same way I can feel my muscles cramping if I spend too long standing.

With Costco, I no longer have to choose between five types of Almond Butter, no longer have to search five dates to find the newest milk - one choice. Shopping at Costco is mentally restful.
