Ok so on Saturdays, we usually have a routine and these videos will show you the struggle and the reward. Enjoy!
It’s funny because, when you Google couponing and people saving money, you don’t see a big, HANDSOME black dude, right??? Hahahhaha. What you don’t believe me? Here’s the link of Google images.
Just think, there’s a coupon for almost everything. I’ve used coupons on dates 😉😉, I’ve used coupons on health care, on fuel, on tires, oil changes, etc. You name it, I’ve used a coupon for. But I must shout this statement from the highest peaks:
THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH SAVING MONEY. BUT REMEMBER QUALITY > QUANTITY. YOU WOULDN’T GO TO THE DOLLAR STORE FOR DETERGENTS, MEATS, FEMININE PRODUCTS, PROPHYLACTIC ETC. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. 😤
Well now that I’m done being petty, below is a video of me exiting Safeway and showing off my savings. Please Enjoy. And as always, leave feedback. I appreciate everyone’s views, likes, concerns, qualms, comments, and suggestions.

So you want to know how I do it huh? Ancient Chinese secrets my dude. Haha, naw. Here in San Francisco, it is the most expensive city to live in. The average median income is about $105k and the average 2 Bedroom Apartment is about $4,200 a month. Minimum wage within the city is $13.50 an hour and this is due to San Francisco being a city/state. The economy is great here in San Francisco and I have to thank my moms for raising me to be a survivor. Forcing me to grocery shopping at the age of 5, I knew about balancing and budgeting at a young age. Now factor in with the cost of living being high, goods and services are high too. You just gotta know how to maneuver in the City. For instance, if any of you guys ever visit, 1st thing you do is call or email me. I used to be a tour guide and I’m a native of this city for 34 years now I’ll tell you what hotel to stay in and what to expect etc. Where to go, where not to go. 2nd thing is you never buy fuel in San Francisco. Or get a rental car. I go outside of the city limits to do a lot of the shopping. Sales tax within the city is 8.5%.
So one way of survival is couponing. Yes being thrifty and frugal is how you can breathe easily especially when you are living paycheck to paycheck. Like, Share, leave comments, please!✌
One thing I love about the special needs community, is there is no white supremacy. There is no racism. There is no politics. There is no sexism. There is no police brutality. There is no xenophobia. There is no homophobia. There’s just life. How can such an unknown and imperfect disease create such a perfect world for said individuals? MAKES YOU THINK.
When you have kids on the spectrum, you can not take them to “normal places.” Society deems our children as an inconvenience. So you make lemonade out of these proverbial lemons. I only take the kids to sensory friendly places and it makes sense. I’ve already accepted that most people are douche bags so why am I gonna expose my children to that?
This adventure was at the San Jose Children’s Museum, where 3 times a year they have a Sensory Friendly Night and it was awesome. Please follow us for more updates on us, watch the video below, and please leave feedback. Special thanks to Diana M. for the tickets 😉

Once again, these little guys out witted their old man. Ok here’s what happened. Yesterday I went grocery shopping. I notice the Doritos were on sale. Unfortunately we had the Safeway select knock off Doritos. Now seeing that I hate wasting food, I tried to switch the chips hoping to trick the boys. Please watch the video below. Thank you for watching and storing by. And remember one of our famous quotes “Autistic or not”
https://youtu.be/2IT0sIVc5BI (Click link)
I would have to say Hell F!@#$% Yea. Serena Williams just beat her sister Venus in the 2017 Austrailian open. In the 29 overall title matches that they have faced each other, Serena is 18-29 over her sister Venus. Wow that is impressive. It is a great rivalry that we have 2 young Black Women, competing against each other, and still remain closers than ever. Their father did an excellent job giving these Queens morals.
We will talk more about these amazing ladies, but first lets be real y’all. (I hate to take away from this amazing moment by talking about race, but we have too) We will come back to the lovely Williams sister’s, honestly. When people think of the greatest Athletes ever, these 2 Queens are never mentioned. Sure people mention Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps etc, but why does the Williams sisters always get the short end of the stick? Well we know why. The world will never accept a Black woman as being dominate, unless she looks like this….
It’s the truth. Let’s break this down a lil:
Michael Jordan is a world wide entity. He’s experienced heavy racism growing up in North Carolina. In one of my favorite books of all time called “Young, Black, Rich, and Famous.” By Dr. Todd Boyd, Dr. Boyd illustrates a great point about Michael Jordan’s success in White America.
(Paraphrasing here) “Once Michael Jordan traded in his gold chains for wing tips, he transcended a color line that even Magic Johnson couldn’t break.. Unfortunately for Black America, White America transformed Jordan into a world wide phenomenon, thus creating an illusion that Black problems disappeared. When his infamous quote “Republicans buy shoes, too” hit the airwaves, Black America knew they lost their guy.” So why did I reference all that? Well Venus and Serena Williams has been the forefront for not only the inequalities in sports but in culture as well.
Example: isn’t Venus, Serena, and Michael Jordan all the same skin color? So why does people only say that the Williams sisters look like apes or monkeys and not Jordan? Is it because the racists people who make these remarks, sees Jordan as their “own” and don’t see him as a black man, due to his years of being silent on socio-economic issues regarding his own people? How can some people be so envious of Black athletic prowess, but only acknowledge Black men’s ability as of Black women are not equal?
Here we are in 2017 and people just can’t accept a strong black woman, kicking ass. I will write about this more in the future but let’s get back to the ladies of the hour. Serena and Venus Williams y’all, cue the music. 🎶🎶🎶!
Imagine being these brave ladies. Imagine playing a sport that’s not portrayed for Black people to play. Imagine traveling all over the world to get called the same racial epithets everywhere you go. Imagine losing your sister Yetunde Price to senseless gang violence in 2003. Imagine your own people clocking your “miles” on who you are dating and who you are with. Imagine facing racist reporters demanding that you are not a woman and that you need to be drug tested before and ever match. Imagine having a “Eurocentric Beauty” Who can not play tennis to save her life, and gets caught cheating, make almost the same amount of money that you are making, due to her looks not her ability. (Talking about you Maria Sharapova). Imagine Black America turn their back on you because you got engaged to someone who makes you happy who happens to be white. Nigger. Coon. Monkey. Gorilla. Bitch. Yes imagine that folks. Imagine seeing your male counterparts not going through this because White Men accept LeBron James but not you. Can you imagine? And you wonder why Black people just keep persevering. That’s resilience folks.
Now imagine being an inspiration to young ladies around the world. Imagine making millions upon millions of dollars. Imagine winning countless of Olympic gold medals. Countless Austrailian open titles. Countless Wimbledon titles. Countless magazine covers. Countless tv appearances. Countless speeches. Countless of praise. Countless of respect. Can you imagine it people? These Queens deserve your attention. Now imagine me not having to do this amazing article because the Williams sisters are light skint. Now imagine millions of others bloggers doing this article because the Williams sisters are white and look like Maria Sharapova or Anna Kournikova.
Thank you for reading.
Finally it is here. I am not holding back either ladies. There are some greasy ladies out there and a greasy lady is not only extra shiny but a low down, back stabbing lady. Please look out for them and do not leave anything around because they might take it from you. Remember these are all jokes and in good fun so don’t be all sensitive, smdh.
10. Taraji Henson
Ok, Taraji is fine and all but I don’t trust her at all. She looks like she would poke holes in ya condom stash. Just Trifilin.
9. Star Jones
Greasiness comes in different hues and sizes. Yes the same Star Jones who said that she was a certified dime piece on national TV. 😔😔😔. Her weaves be looking like when you run ya fingers through her hair, they feel like caterpillars. Lmfao
8. Bunny Debarge
Bunny, you are only on here because you know damn well you look exactly like your brothers in the 80s. I don’t trust you so when I come over your house, I am leaving my wallet hidden underneath your bathroom sink.
7. Missy Elliott
Missy is the most underrated performer of all time🎶, but y’all know that hefty bag was all greasy and sweaty. Them finger waves were screaming for moisturizer 24/7.
6. Latoya Jackson
Yes you were greasy Latoya, airing out your family business and being all Glisteny in ya playboy shoots. You know you need to have a hurricane Katrina~esq bath and hibernate in a botanical garden for 2 weeks. Just Trifilin.
Yes she was and don’t try and cover for her. She let her greasiness effect pop culture for a decade now. You see what Flavor Flav did. Hell I could of did the whole list on his contestants hahahaha. And Flav should of been on the Brothas list but oh well.
4. Gabrielle Union
Cmon Gabe, how you gonna let ya hubby post an after smash session pic of ya greasy, Dirty ass face? You are probably the handsomiest greasiest lady in the history of greasiness. Yes that’s right I went there.
3. Grace Jones

2. Daphene Maxwell Reid
Tim Reid your wife is a goddess when it comes to the grease business. Yes she is. Never liked her. She is not Aunt Viv. Just look at her evil face all shiny and mean looking. Smdh.
1. Robin Givens
You guys know why. Gold digger, greasy, ugly, mean, all of that. She would make the perfect evil villian in movies because of permanent scowl she wears so proudly. Lmfao.
There were several ladies I left off *cough Rihanna cough* but hey its my list. Please who would you add or subtract from this list. Tell us. If you are in a grumpy or sad mood, I hope this post made u smile, even for a Lil bit.
Yes there are several of NBA players who do not get enough credit. Probably because ESPN and Bleacher Report and other major media outlets do not want the average sports fan to veer interests elsewhere. How do we give great players the shine and adulation that they deserve? You subscribe to thecouchsports.com. 😆😆. So here’s my all NBA underrated team
Starting Center: Myles Turner
Last year Myles Turner was averaging, 10.3 pts, 5.5 rebs, 0.7 ast, 1.4blks, 49.8 fg%, 21.4 3pt%. This year he has improved from all aspects of his game. 15.3 pts, 7.3 rebs, 1ast, 2.3blks, 54 fg%, & 35 3pt%. If the trade rumors on Paul George comes true, The Pacers could potentially have their next star in the making.
Starting Power Forward: Julius Randle
Julius has been balling out for the baby Lakers. Despite their struggles, he is managing to polish his game averaging 13pts, 9rebs, 3.2 asts, & 50% fgs. He even had a triple double earlier in this young season. Randle is a baller and he will be a great hybrid stretch 4 going forward. He just needs to work on his defense.
Starting Small Forward: Gordon Hayward
I know Gordon is mad right now. He’s giving his all to a small market but yet he’s constantly in trade rumors. Thanks Danny Ainge. Hayward is having a career year in Points, Rebounds, Free Throw %, and 3pt %. The Utah JAZZ might just make the playoffs this year and it would be a good look for Hayward to see the post season. Honestly if Hayward played in the Eastern Conference he would be a perennial all star.
Starting Shooting Guard: Nicholas Batum
Yes Yes Yes I know that Batum is a Small Forward by nature but he can easily play the 2 guard. Charlotte got it right by cashing out Batum this past off season. This guy is what a basketball player looks like. He can virtually play the 1-4 positions in today’s NBA, He can pass, handle the ball, set up his teammates, plays good solid on/off ball defense and he shoots well. Batum is averaging. 14pts, 7.5 rebs, 5.5ast per game and Charlotte is actually vying for a playoff spot right now.
Starting Point Guard: Kemba Walker
Yes 2 Charlotte players on the starting line up. But man oh man Kemba Walker is always underrated. Kemba is balling out of control. Having career highs in scoring average, fg%, and 3pt fg %, Kemba should finally grace the Eastern Conference NBA All Star game this season.
NOW FOR THE RESERVES
Kevin Love Power Forward
Yes Kevin Love is underrated this year. How can a $20 million dollar player be underrated? Easily, with all the focus on Kyrie and LeBron, Kevin LOVE is quietly putting up 22.3pts, 11rebs, 86% ft (career high), 55% fg (career high). Yes all of this considering the controversy he has been through in the early part of his career with the Cavs. Kevin Love will probably make the Eastern Conference Allstar Team and help the Cavs once again win a title.
Isaiah Thomas Point Guard
The heart of any team he plays on, plays with anger and a chip on his shoulder. And it’s not because of his stature. It’s because of he is constantly overlooked by sports pundits from all across the League. The man is averaging 26 pts a game while the Celtics are currently in 3rd place in the East (14-12). Look for Thomas to lead the Celtics deep into the playoffs whole hopefully making another All Star team.
Dennis Schroder Point Guard
Atlanta let Jeff Teague go because they knew they had their emerging point guard off the bench. They were right. Schroder is having a career year while being the facilitator of the Hawks offense. 16.6pts, 6.3ast, 3rebs a game. Unfortunately he has also been the focal point of the Hawks recent struggles as of late. Give him time, it’s his first year.
Steven Adams Center
The 7’0″ kiwi is a rare refreshing throwback center in today’s soft ass NBA. Where else are you going to find a center who wants to do all the dirty work. Setting solid screens, mixing it up in the paint, hell even getting kicked in the balls by Draymond Green. Adams is also having a career year while playing with two ball dominated combo guards(Westbrook & Oladipo) Adams is having a career year in pts, rebs, and FT% (12pts, 7.5 rebs 74% ft)
Tim Frazier Point Guard
He put up a 20pt 10 assist game against my Warriors. Averaging 11pts, 7.5ast,3.6rebs per game. Now coming off the bench due to Jrue Holiday coming back, Frazier is playing well off the bench. Even put up a triple double against Phoenix earlier this year.
C.J McCollum Shooting Guard
CJ, plays well besides Dame. Although CJ struggles defensively, he is making up for it by being a marksman from the field. Portland’s future all depends on him developing a knack for the defensive end. CJ is having a career year numbers wise in Points, steals, Fg%, Ft%, 3pt fg%, and rebounds. Last year’s Most Improved player will definitely be the Yin to Dame’s Yang. RIP CITY represent.
John Henson Center
Henson is a solid defender who nobody ever talks about. He plays well with Jabari and Giannis, and is a low maintenance center who has a good feel for his role. Whether he is coming off the bench or starting, he is a serviceable 7 footer who can block shots, and defend the paint.
Ok. So there you have it. Who would be on your list? Underrated all day, right? ✌
Press Play on the video above
What’s up people. Tareau here live from thecouchsports.com. As a lot of you know I have 3 children. My twin sons are autistic. Yes it’s a challenge for a variety of reasons but the reward is worth the struggle. I will talk more about autism in the near future but I wanted to share this with you. Here Rayquan is in his room, and he doesn’t want to share. Please watch till the end, what he says is priceless. I’m Hella petty though hahahaha.
If you know anybody or anyone who has autism or that is affected by autism, please understand what they go through in a day to day basis. The world is a dangerous place for the special needs and disabled. There is the general populous who don’t want to help, or see you as an inconvenience or just plain ol inconsiderate. There’s also lack of funding, lack of education for the staff, and autistic people are easily sexually abused, bullied, and molested. They are easy targets for sexual predators and pedophiles. My biggest fear in life is not being there to help my sons and knowing that some stranger is doing harm to them. Also they are COLORED boys and they don’t even realize this racist society that we live in. In a perfect world, their imperfect world is perfect. No color, no judgement, no racism, no sexism, no war, no famine. So please as you watch this video, know that I am alleviating a certain pain that only few can understand.
