Scotch-Brite sponges (24 pack) – $4 off

I’ve always thought that these sponges were on sale way too often. Then I had a waking moment. They are not on sale too often, but I hold on to the dirty sponges for too long. I was poor all my life. I am still trying to adjust to my new lifestyle with bigger paychecks. The last time these sponges were on sale was August 2023. So, I should replace these sponges at least once a week (not once a month, hahaha.). I wonder if people with sharp eyes can tell that I grew up poor. I wonder how many of these telling signs I still possess – which I don’t mind. I am what I am. I was poor all my life and I am proud of it. Money comes and money goes. 🙂

hulu for 99¢ a month – 10 months or less for me

Today is the last day to subscribe to Hulu (with ad) for 99¢ per month for a year. This is a special Black Friday deal. I get to pay 99¢ every month for the next 12 months. This deal is only available for new or returning customers. In order to be classified as a “returning customer”, I had to cancel Hulu for 30 days or longer. So, I will cancel my service 2 months before Thanksgiving 2024. That way, on the next year’s Black Friday, I will be at “returning customer” status again. (keep reading below)

If Hulu doesn’t bring back the Black Friday special next year? I will not miss them a bit. Screw them. My money is more important than watching TV.

TV has its place. TV can be valuable to people. I would subscribe to more TV services if I were retired or immobile and my only enjoyment (reason for living) is watching TV. But, if you are young, trying to make something out of your life (make money, start a business, learn skills, be better…), then TV is a disease you need to avoid.

Anyway, I have Hulu now. I shall catch up on The Conners, Bob’s Burgers, To Catch a Smuggler, etc.. I leave the TV as a background while I work from home. Good times…

Sunday Driving – Video Greeting Card

I woke up at 4 AM and went to Santa Clarita (CA) before the Sunrise for this video. Below is a 12-minute video of me driving down Bouquet Canyon Road. It was a glorious Sunday morning.

This is my first greeting card in 15 years. Thank you so much for looking me up from time to time.

There are a handful of visitors who will enjoy this video. It’s not because the video quality is amazing, but they will enjoy seeing me, a little guy, enjoying a little moment. Some of you may even feel proud that I have made this much progress in 15 years.

I am a little guy, and I am proud of it. I don’t look at the mirror every morning and say “What will I do to change the world” – F that. I’m a little guy. I will not cure diseases. I will not compete in the Olympics. I pay taxes and do what they tell me to do. And no motivational speaker can make me happier than I am now. So step aside Randy Couture!

Talk to you later. Good times~!!!

Costco Coupons, Member-Only Savings, November 2023

Valid October 25, 2023 – November 19, 2023

It’s that time of the year. But jumbo shrimps are not on sale for Thanksgiving. I enjoy shrimp cocktails while the turkey is being cooked. They didn’t have big-size turkeys last year. It was pathetic. Now that the pandemic is over, I expect to see big turkeys at Costco.

Turkey is cheap. The price difference between a 15-pound turkey and a 20-pound turkey is $5 – $10. I recommend everyone to bake a big turkey and enjoy leftovers. It’s so much more entertaining to bake a big turkey instead of a small one. I live alone, and this is my 12th (maybe 13th) year baking turkey alone. During that time, on 2 occasions, I have baked turkey for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. That’s freakin’ two turkeys in 2 months – for one person! Even I think that’s not normal.

It’s just fun. I don’t know what else to say…

Oh, and this year. I may focus on taking some decent videos and share them with you.

Costco Shopping Video – Aug 17, 2023

It’s been a long time. I am doing fine, just getting old.

Do you know many people say “I am blessed” or “Exciting things ahead”… but they usually suffer miserable situations in secret? I don’t have anything like that. You all remember me from way back (5 – 10 – 15 years ago). My life is boring and nothing really happens. I still say boring is the best. I wonder how many of my old visitors are still checking out my blog.

I shot this video on August 17, 2023. I finally edited last night (October 15, 2023).

God bless everyone. Please take care.
