2 Kirkland Signature saucepans - $1 each

Happy 4th of July.  Congratulations to Joey Chestnut for winning 10th championship on hot dog eating contest.

These 2 Kirkland Signature saucepans (2 qt & 3 qt) were $1 each.

Kirkland Signature Saucepans

I found them at a garage sale, of course.  They came without lids. They look used.  But it doesn't matter to me.  Before these, I had a saucepan that I got for free.  Either a friend of mine gave it to me or I dug it out from a public trash bin (I used to be very thrifty).  I've been using that free saucepan for over 10 years.

I was excited to fine these 2 saucepans for $2.  And they are Kirkland Signature.  When I go to Costco, I always look at Costco cookware set. I've always wanted to have some of those Kirkland Signature kitchenware.  They are so good used, I can only imagine how good they are as a brand new set.

I shall enjoy these saucepans.

Costco & Citi Visa Refund Checks

$37.07 is a Costco reward from having an executive membership.  I pay $110 a year, $55 more than standard membershp.  My executive membership paid for itself and it paid me $37.04.

$200.93 is Citi Bank's reward. $211.93 is a lot of money to get back, but sometimes I wonder if there are any other card (program) with a better rewards.

That's the beauty of Costco.  If you just stick with Costco, you are getting some of the best rewards available, if not the best. You don't need to do all the research.

I thought I never received this $200 check.  I had to request for a replacement. But, really... I was soo looking forward to this check.  I cannot believe I lost it without knowing.  I still think I never received it at the first place.

I never went away. Trying to get my mojo back.

Hi.  Are there any old time visitors still visiting me?

I am sorry I haven't upated my blog lately.  Nothing happened in my life.  I am just working, working..  But, mostly, I am slowly becoming a boring old man. I am losing my mojo.

I started my blog 9 years ago, I was in my 30's.  I had a lot of free time back then.  Compared to 9 years ago, I do better financially.  I am more comfortable. But... I am becoming an old man.

I will try to have fun with my blog one more time. I will try and see if getting connected with my blog will get my mojo back.

I still enjoy Costco a lot.  Do you realize, we will see Christmas at Costco in about a month? (early August) 

I would like to get excited about stupid and boring stuff just like before.  Now I think about home owners insurance, looking for broken roof tile, high blood sugar level... stuff like that.  Getting old sucks.

Let's not get old.  I will keep in touch. God bless everyone..

Costco Shopping - March 28, 2017

I've always wanted to taste champagne.  But, I was poor all my life, that I never had an oppotunity to taste champagn.  So, today I picked up a bottle of Kirkland Signature champagne. I was very excited about it. On my way out, the checkout guy asked what I was celebrating.  "Nothing.  It's my everyday champagne." I replied with a smile.

I cannot get enough of Chef's Cut Beef Jerkey.  It's really good.

Costco Shopping - March 23, 2017

I was excited to see SPAM on sale.  I don't know why a lot of people mock SPAM.  It's perfectly fine if you don't like SPAM.  But, you don't have to mock us.  None of my female friends, past and present, liked SPAM.  But, it was more than that.  When I told them I liked SPAM, they all made a puke face and said "Yuck". They seemed to take away points because I liked SPAM. Maybe that's why they didn't stick around... because I'm a SPAM lover.  SPAM, to me, is a must have item at my house. I crave SPAM every several months, and I must have some.  This 8 pack will last a few years.  Girls may come and go, but I will have these low sodium SPAMs in my cupboard, telling me everything will be fine.

Coupons saved $24.50 today.

Chef's Cut Beef Jerky was really good. I finished the whole bag in two days.  I may buy one more.  This was one of the best jerkies I have ever tasted.

I always buy jarlsberg cheese from Costco whenever there is a coupon.  This is an amazing buy.

Toiliet papers, glad food containers, shampoo, and conditioners were all on sale. It was a fun Costco shopping.

Sign of Getting Old - No more sneakers

I try to stay young.  I would like to believe I didn't change much.  But, if I look at certain things, I see clear signs of getting old. One thing I noticed was my shoes - I am talking about shoes I wear every day at work, weekend, when I go out Costco shopping, when I go out to see my friends...

Below is my current everyday shoes.  They are, Ecco, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and Hugo Boss. Black pair is my everyday shoes for work. Most younger coworkers wear sneakers at work. I cannot wear sneakers anymore because it feels funny.  I feel normal in dress shoes.  Why would I wear high performance sneakers when I don't plan to jump up and down at work?  I don't wear running shorts to work...I don't wear mouthpiece at I work.  I don't know.... that's how I look at it. 

Hence, sign of getting old.

The green insoles inside black shoes are Superfeet.  They are the best insoles money can buy (around $40 a pair).  So, my feet are very comfortable in dress shoes.

I hope Costco sells designer shoes.

Below is a pictur from 8 years ago, my everyday shoes were all sneakers. (picture below).

8 years ago was good times.  I would give anything to go back to that government subsidized 1 bedroom apartment.  I was very happy and positive back then.  I am still happy and positive... but old. :(   Haha.

St. Patrick's Day - Costco Corned Beef Brisket

Top of the morning to you.

This is my 4th year to celebrate St. Patrick's Day by making corned beef brisket. Costco always stock Bill Bailey's Corned Beef Brisket late February to beginning of March.

It's very simple to make.  I put the meat, cabbage, and water in a slow cooker. I set my slow cooker to low.  Then I go to work and come back.  Dinner is ready when I come back home (10-12 hours).  I still have to make mashed potato.

I like to eat my corned beef brisket with the juice.  I don't know how authentic this is, but I like it.
