Vizio SB4051-C0 40″ 5.1 Bluetooth Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer.

Vizio Soun Bar  Costco Saving

I saw this Vizio sound bar on Costco’s Pre-Thanksgiving flyer. It was $199.99 after $80.00 discount.  I’ve been searching for some kind of audio system for my TV for last year or so.  There are many cheaper options available.  But I cannot allow cheap sound in my house because I love watching TV (and proud).  This unit caught my attention because it was right at my budget after $80 off.  When it comes to sound system, (usually) you get better sound quality as you spend more money.  So, you want to spend maximum amount of money within your budget.

This Vizio sound bar does exactly what I want it to do.  It sits behind my TV that I can barely see it’s there.  The subwooper is hidden on the floor behind the TV.  My TV remote controls the volume of the sound bar.  Music channels sound amazing with this.

The volume goes up to level 35.  I normally watch TV at level 7-10.  Level 20 is too loud that I cannot enjoy watching TV that way.  When I listen to music channel, I may raise the volume to level 20-25 but only for a few minutes.  Volume level 35 is not realiatic for me.

As a TV lover, this sound bar dramatically improves my life style.  I am really enjoying this.

FYI:  I still haven’t installed the satellite speakers.

I came a long way.  When I first started my blog, I had a 9 Inch TV in my living room.

Kitchen Towels Suck – all of them

I don’t know why people buy, sell, & use kitchen towels like these.  yes, I own several of them myself (picture below).  But these towels SUCK!.  They don’t perform well as I want them to. They are too small and thin that they quickly become soaking wet.  They need to be thicker and larger.  Dish towels have been around for many years… but am I the only person with this complain?  Are you guys happy with your dish towels?

I keep some of the dish towels just because I want to follow the tradition.  I may even use them when I have formal guests.  But what really works for me is bathroom hand towels (28 to 30 Inches long).

I don’t know what kind of dish towels you guys use.  To me, nothing even comes close to bathroom hand towels, and I will continue to use them in the kitchen.

FYI: The towels I use in the kitchen are from Costco.  🙂

Costco Dylan George T-Shirts – Bought 40 of them.

I know this will sound crazy to some people.  But, this will make perfect sense to some others.  I bought 40 shirts at Costco (Dylan George).  3 different colors, but same design.

About 3 years ago I bought 29 Calvin Klein T-Shirts.  For 2 years those Calvin Klein v-necks were “my look” that I truly enjoyed.  Costco brought back the same shirts earlier this year.  They were the same design as before, but they used entirely different (stupid) material that they couldn’t pay me enough for me to wear them.

After two years I wore out all my CK shirts, so I had to throw them out,  I spent over a  year looking for my new shirts with no luck.  Then I finally found these Dylan George T-Shirts at Costco.  It’s the brand name I have never heard of.  They were only $9.99 each, and they fit me well.  They are slim fit.  The sleeves are shorter than conventional t-shirts – I like that.  It has a small pocket that separates these shirts from most t-shirts that are basically undershirts. I really like these shirts.  I found my new look. So, I bought 40 of them.

$400 is a lot of money, but, to me, this was a smart investment.  I wish had I bought 70 Calvin Klein shirts 3 years ago, instead of measly 29.  What was I thinking??  x_0

Anyway, I’ve been hearing random compliments about my shirt.  Some dude even asked me if I work out.  It’s good to know they like my shirts, because they will see them for a few years.  Haha.

Stack of 28 shirts

40 shirts in the closet.  After washing them, I hang my shirts on the right side. I wear whatever that’s hanging on the left side.  So the shirts will slowly rotate from right to left.  It will take 40+ days to complete a rotation.  It will rotate 9 times in one year.

* The picture shows 1/3 (33%) of the closet.  I also have a coat closet,
