Extra Fancy Calrose Rice from Botan

I don't know if there's a truth to this "Extra Fancy" line that Botan brand uses for their  Calrose rice but we buy it anyway.  This 20 lbs  bag of rice costs  almost $18 at Walmart.  I grew up eating rice and I find it weird that when I don't eat  rice for a day, I get such a massive headache.  Not sure what's the connection but it does,  so we have cooked rice everyday at our home.  

When I first came here in the States, I was very shocked how expensive rice  is.  When I left my country  eight  years ago, a 50 kilos sack of rice would cost like 1,500 pesos which is about $30 dollars and that was when  the exchange rate of dollar to peso was 1 to 50.  When the President got re-elected the rate of dollar went down from fifty to 39 at the present.  To estimate the cost and content of the rice, five bags of this 9.07 kilos of rice here is way too expensive compared to the price of a 50 kilos rice over there.  Oh well...

Natural Bedding

We filed our tax returns   last week and we would get back a good amount  just enough to pay off one of our remaining loan from last year.  We are trying to figure out what we are going to do with the  extra.  Our choices would be to allot the money for our project of  turning our dining room into a bedroom or buy a new  living room set as the one we currently have is getting wore out.  Whatever we would come up with, I hope it's for the best.

I  was looking at the selection of   sofa beds at Futonz website and they have  quite a few that I like.     They also have a wide selection of   bed frames and other bedroom products such as mattresses, bedside tables, bed bases and more. With so many stores offering  different kinds of bedroom furniture and accessories, it is tough to find the right one but Futonz stand out for me because  they offer natural bedding which is very important for me as I have kids at home.   As parents, we always  prioritize what is best for our kids and natural bedding is a great choice for them!  You can check out  the above mentioned website's selection by visit any of the links I have provided above.
