Stupid Grocery Shopping Mistakes When On A Tight Budget

My Stupid Shopping Errors For This Week

My Stupid Shopping Errors For This Week

I could have saved a lot of money if I hadn’t impulse bought a bunch of junk food. I intended to eat for a week, but mostly I set out to get new bed covers and light bulbs, the important stuff. It’s a good week gone by and I have 3 cans of tuna, 1 can of chicken breast, 1 Digiorno’s pizza. Everything else is consumed by either me or entire family of 5. I’m not the main breadwinner, but this is always a good exercise for when I’m going to be on my own.

Anyway, I shouldn’t have bought those damn expensive Naked Juices, which were almost $8 a bottle (64 fl oz).

However, I did notice the packaged salad lasted me the entire week. That’s a hell of a deal. Since when I feed myself, I usually don’t get any greens. It’s usually just carbs and sweets, which is a really dumb move. But, man, that box of salad lasted a whole week. You just have to remember to eat it every day. And I’m sure were I living by myself, I’d have to get those greens into my system. It’s a perfect portion.

Another no-brainer good deal is the Ice Mountain water. Just buy a lot of that. You’re always going to need it. I prefer Ice Mountain or Walmart’s generic brand Great Value over Dasani or Nestle (which are scammy, you can read about it in my other blog post).

Otherwise, let my mistakes be your lesson. Grocery shopping is almost a lost artform.

Jackpot Bloom Now Available At Amazon.com and BarnesAndNoble.com!!!

UPDATE

Jackpot Bloom Amazon Listing

Jackpot Bloom Amazon Listing

Well, it turns out you have to manually add the image thumbnail to the Amazon listing page. Lulu.com’s Global Reach program only submits the text data and some other very basic info to the Amazon databases. So you have to sign up for an Amazon.com Author Central account and edit the listing there, including uploading a thumbnail of the book cover. Ironically, Lulu.com doesn’t let you “fix” their book cover thumbnail, but particularly with Jackpot Bloom where the colors are all off. At least BarnesAndNoble.com automatically got it correct. So now that makes Amazon.com and BarnesAndNoble.com displaying the correct cover colors. Noice.

Don’t be spooked out by the Amazon order page, that’s just the approval process. Since Jackpot Bloom is actually printed by Lulu.com via print-on-demand, there is no actual inventory. They’ll print your copy when you order it.

Lulu.com Rolling Out AdSense Ads for Jackpot Bloom, But With A Twist

Lulu.com Strange Suggestions

Lulu.com Strange Suggestions

What the hell, Lulu.com?!!

Jackpot Bloom is paired with a man in speedo? It’s a kid’s book. I haven’t been looking at any gay porn. And that dude in the speedo doesn’t look like a graphic novel either. Wouldn’t Jackpot Bloom be paired with other graphic novels? SMDH, Lulu.com.

After coloring Jackpot Bloom, I learned some new coloring techniques. Would definitely have to apply those to Agent S.

Happy Halloweenie, folks!

Here’s a sketch of a bad-ass babe I was going to make into a videogame. Maybe someday I’ll sit down and draw the story for you. I think it’s pretty epic. We’ll see.

2525: North American Alliance – Science Fiction Stories

2525: North American Alliance
A collection of science-fiction stories
By Chongchen Saelee

I’ve been thinking of a way to re-introduce my Asian-American superhero “Agent S” via a huge scope, a well-established world that’s based on reality. It’s not to be “more grounded” but to actually build on what really exists that people don’t care to acknowledge but might also be amazed by. So I will reintroduce Agent S as part of a collection of new sci-fi stories called “2525: North American Alliance”. It pays homage to the Pop Culture song “In the year 2525” and will be comprised of stories about how America transformed into the America that Agent S inhabits in his timeline. Hopefully, it sets the tone properly before I get to the kung-fu and explosions. (more…)
