Have you set your totally arbitrary MyLot goal for February 2021?

It's hard to believe that Ferbruary is almost over. Today is the 23rd. It's probably already the 24th for some of us. It's not a leap-year, so we have five or six days to get rich in February. I'm in good shape this month, but I'm thinking of becoming a cereal poster anyway. OK, I WILL become a cereal poster. My Trader Joe's Honey O's are simply not as good as the Honey Cheerios I get at Safeway. Simply stated, the flavor is too strong. Do you have a favorite cereal? Does the brand matter? Oh, and have you set your totally arbitrary MyLot goal for this month?

I just came back to myLot the other day so I have no goal for this month. However next month I am sure I will make the payout amount, if not more!

I went over payout minimum yesterday. Arbitrary goal met. Cereal favorite is Grape Nuts. Cannot find them right now. Production is down, as I saw on a documentary, due to the manufacturing issues related to the pandemic.

Well I started a bit slow but covered a lot on a few weekends + other days+ some time here and there. A pinch of strategy + A dash of fun and some humor. And well, what else we want! I an having Muesli from Kellogg's and another brand Soulfull. Yet no fixed breakfast choice as such !! So how much closer to the 2710 Mylot Porsche you are?

Weren't we talking about this post? LOL. My breakfast was bread this morning. I used mint and mango chutney in it. I don't spare mint in Mango season. Somehow I feel raw mint really has the perfect flavor. Add raw mango, cumin seeds some chillies and salt, that is all we need to do to get that blessed chutney. All vitamins INTACT.

@TheHorse Not at all. I am of the opinion you can buy a myLot Porsche in your lifetime. I believe new modes of transportation will be invented, and Porsche will cease to be as expensive. So yeah, there is hope at the end of the tunnel.

I hate breakfast for the most part. If I did eat a cereal, it would be Cheerios with no sweetening whatsoever. I should reach what I made last month which is a lot less than I used to make. No worries....I'm posting a lot less; but I just enjoy talking to everyone; so it's OK.

It's funny you should mention they were too sweet. I've never had Trader Joe's Honey O's, but I have had knock off versions that weren't sweet enough. I'm a millionaire in mylot standards this month.

I will make my primary MyLot goal today. Perhaps I'll be ambitious in setting my secondary and tertiary goals. Not sweet enough would be OK with me. The Trader Joe's one just taste...odd.

@TheHorse A third goal, huh? Most of the time I just have one goal and I don't always get to it. It's strange that it tasted odd. Maybe it was the sweetener they used? There's a keto sweetener that has a cooling sensation kind of taste to it.

@TheHorse most of the time, it's white rice. We eat it with side dishes. For weekend, I would buy nasi lemak. It's rice cooked with coconut milk. Also eaten with side dishes and sambal, a spicy condiment.

My favorite cereal used to be Sugar Crisp or Raisin Brand but not anymore. I am liking Lucky Charms most these days. I started later in the month so I am not sure if I will reach payout or not by the end of the month. Possibly by the look of my earnings right now.
