32 Degrees Men’s Mesh Performance Heat Tee

Nov
11

Costco is currently selling long sleeves tee shirts by 32 Degrees Heat.  With $2 instant rebate through November 27, they are only $6.99 each.  Kids' sets are also on sale. They are high quality products.  They look good. 

They are supposed to be undershirts.  But they look good enough to wear out side.  Especially women's shirts look freaking hot.

$6.99 is cost of a Hanes long sleeves. To me it was no brainer.  I bought 5 of them.  I hope they last.

*They are also available online, with free shipping.

Underwear Drawers

Oct
07

TMI.

Here's a picture of my underwear drawers. I put on dark colors in the morning, and whites at night (after shower). I have roughly 65 pairs of underwears.

Below that is a picture of my sock drawers.  I wear black socks when I go out, to match dark colored shoes, and wear whites at home.   Same goes with my T-shirts.  I wear dark t-shirts when I go out, and change into white t-shirt as soon as I come back home.  Bleached white linens (pima cotton) give me cozy feeling.

Costco Shopping (10/4/2016). Green Pan

Oct
05

I saw more Christmas items at Costco today.

I am sick of buying new frying pans.  They all claim to be non-stick. But, they never last long enough.  My last non-stick ceramic pan lasted about 4 months and it started to stick like glue.  I regret not buying from Costco.

I bought a pair of pans today for $39.99.  What caught my attention is that they have dimples - they call it "Dotted Surface" that optimally distributes oil.  I took it home and tried it.  It seemed to be working (see picture).  Another thing I like about thess pans is that their bottoms are perfectly flat so they sit flat on my glass top range. That means my pans will no longer wobble and shift oil to one comer.   If you own glass top range, you feel my frustration. I am happy about that design.  I'll have to use them for a several months to see how they hold up.  Anyway, Costco has done it again... another exciting product that will improve my life style (at reasonable price).

Oh, and that huge bag of spinach?  I finish that in about a week.  I bought a Vitamix blender around January 2012 at Costco.  I still use it twice a day.  I still recommend everyone to buy Vitamix and use it.

Bracelets

Sep

Big picture is located here

Here are some of the (chain) bracelets I bought at garage sales. I am finally putting them on eBay one by one. I need more time to get better at eBay.

When I say "I enjoy garage sales" people don't seem to understand what it's about.  Anyway, it takes certain skills to be good at garage sales.  I am obsessed about building that skill.

They are all silver.  One is gold filled. One is gold over silver (with Onyx).

The one on top - I don't know what kind of gemstone it is, but I had to buy it.  I couldn't stop looking at it.  I still look at it.

Sorry, I've been lazy - Update

Sep
08

Hi, how are you?  Time flies.

Sorry, I've been lazy.  I am doing very good. 

I've been enjoying garage sales a lot.  I have a lot of stuff (including silver jewelry) that I need to start selling.  I have dedicated 1 bedroom for garage sale and eBay selling.

At one garage sale, I bought a pair of silver Tiffany earings for $60.  I knew I could sell them for $150.00.  Indeed, they are being sold on eBay for $150. But all sellers are located outside of The US.  I learned that eBay prohibits sales of Tiffany products by US sellers. That sucks.   If you are my long time visitor who can trust me AND would like a pair of Tiffany earings, contact me.  I will sell it to you for $120.  (free shipping).

My work is going well.  I enjoy my house. I am healthy.

I've been saving money to buy a (used) car, but lately I've been thinking about investnig that money in real estate, flipping houses. It sounds exciting to me to risk it all.  Since California is super expensive, I'll have to invest somewhere cheaper.  Anyway, it's fun to think about it. 

I haven't seen much Christmas stuff at Costco.  It's September already.  There should be Rudolph, Santa, and... stuff like that.   But, I only see the same ribbons for over a month.  We have less than 4 months left for holiday season to end.  But I don't see Christmas signs anywhere.  Hm...

Thanksgiving is 11 weeks away.  I am excited about massive eating I will enjoy.  There will be some heavy duty Costco shopping before that.  I will buy fancy snacks, chocolate, wine, shrimps, exotic cheese, turkey (of course), etc, etc...  God bless America.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I will keep in touch.

Enjoy Costco shopping.

First Sign of Christmas 2016 - July 29

Jul
29

Hey, it's here.

For last several years (perhaps over 10 years?) the first sign of Christmas at Costco was these Christmas ribbons.   I always see them in late July.  Today, July 29th, at my Costco shopping, I expected to see those Christmas ribbons, and I there they were.

I was excited to see those ribbons  You know how much I love Christmas. To me, it's fun and exciting when I see the first sign of Christmas.  It so happens that Costco is the store that officially releases Christmas products the earliest.  This adds to my mental association between Costco and festive feeling.  When I think about Christmas, I think about Costco. My Christmas will not be the same without Costco.

We still have long Summer months left.  But, seeing these ribbons changes my internal energy.  Things wil be different now that Costco has officially hinted Christmas 2016.

We will have good time this Winter.  And, soon, 2016 will be a history.  So, now is time to show love to my friends and family before I look back with regret.

Enjoy~!!
