Kulap Vilaysack, SuChin Pak, Allison

SuChin Pak  00:07

Carter’s welcome back. We’re back, It’s, and we’re back so many times. So many times are back. I’m manic. I’m going to admit that I’m also I’m also SuChin Pak.

Kulap Vilaysack  00:22

Yeah, yeah. And I’m Kuku Vilaysack. Yeah. So I guess I can feel the tension rolling on, through the screen. So you do seem a little wound up like a Lemax Christmas Village?

SuChin Pak  00:36

Oh, first of all, yes, I haven’t set up my Lemax. I don’t know if it’s le Max loot Max li Max Christmas Village yet, it is happening this weekend, I get Thanksgiving off the books. And then the village rises, and that is the order of events. But before we get into what today is about, I do have a little bit of a check in myself. You know, I’m waving a white flag Ku.

Kulap Vilaysack  01:06

Oh, so what do you mean?

SuChin Pak  01:07

I got, I got to get a hold of some of this mania. And what I mean by this, and you’re not going to be surprised, and listeners, if you’ve heard the first year we did this, I had to actually instill a no by January where I didn’t buy and look at anything with $1 sign attached to it because I just was overloaded. I’ve gone so hard. I’ve got myself into such a jam. Ku, I think I gave myself a little bit of a sinus infection. I’m not sleeping. My hand hurts, I am so deep into the scrolling, and the looking, and the list, I can’t stop. It’s like every free moment I have.

Kulap Vilaysack  01:55

So this episode is actually for you. It’s what you need. And I wondered why you were resisting this episode. And now it makes sense to me. I don’t know. I don’t know what to do. Black Friday,I’m like Su, I’m like, it’s like things to prepare yourself to go into the mines. To you know, but the truth is now I’m understanding that my friend Su, was you flailing?

SuChin Pak  02:25

Yeah, I’ve not come up for air. You know, it’s been weeks, and so I thought of it last night as I was up like, like less, okay, oh, I forgot. REI is having huge sales just until November, so I only have a mere 24 hours to get my ass over there to buy this watch that Kai wanted on sale. You know what I mean? Like, all of these things are coming to me at two in the morning, three of them are like ping, ping, ping. And so I told myself, I woke up this morning, on three hours of sleep, and I said I gotta set some ground rules. I have to set some office hours for myself. I need for me, my personality, my obsessive nature, not only into shopping, but the inability to make a decision on a deadline, especially when it comes to gift giving. And I drive myself insane with this back and forth. Your voice rang in my head when you said I’m done. I gotta get it done, because I need to enjoy and I’m not enjoying it. And I’m feeling that pressure of like, it’s time to enjoy now. And enjoy is not coming. And so I have to schedule enjoy.

Kulap Vilaysack  03:37

Yes, you do. You’re also like, there’s a deadline to enjoy, you know, and that’s making you anxious. But I love this idea of you scheduling a version of tree time. We include my beautiful lashes unfurling out coquettishly.

SuChin Pak  03:53

I understand free time at now in a way that I don’t think I understood before because I realized that like, I’m not having fun. I’m like a sergeant, you know, on a bunch of caffeine that just like can’t stop going and everyone is in my path. And so this is what I’m saying I need to rein it, and what I’m going to do starting today, with this episode is I’m going to have one day I picked aside where I say this is the list. That’s it. I’m not altering it, this is it. This is what people are getting. And then one day, I’m just gonna buy every single thing on that list. And then that’s it. And by the Monday after Thanksgiving, we’ll let Black Friday go Cyber Monday at the end of that Monday. I’m done. So I’m clear going into December one deck one, clean.

Kulap Vilaysack  04:51

Holy cow. I joke around, I have raised bumps. For you to say that.

SuChin Pak  04:58

Yeah, I need to free my itself from this thing that I do every year, and I get myself into a jam and I suck so little joy out of it because by the time December 24 rolls around, I’m a dry Turkey husk husk, there ain’t no juice on the meet.

Kulap Vilaysack  05:19

Oh, no, no, no, no, we need the juice of life. We need to be soaking.

SuChin Pak  05:23

I would say I didn’t know by January, I would say a no by December maybe is an order for me. That’s how extreme I’ve gone. So I want to enjoy Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving.

Kulap Vilaysack  05:40

I do too.

SuChin Pak  05:41

It’s a high number two on that list of holidays.

Kulap Vilaysack  05:44


SuChin Pak  05:45

And I know you go nuts on Thanksgiving. I know. I know. We’re gonna get the Google doc this year, aren’t we to share?

Kulap Vilaysack  05:51

Oh, yeah, I need to share that Google Doc.

SuChin Pak  05:53

Yep, yep, yep, yep, yep.

Kulap Vilaysack  05:55

To me, it heralds the season. It’s where we start to come together. And I love the food and I love a spatchcocking a turkey. You know, I love dispatch kaka turkeys lay in her legs. That’s right. I butterfly that Turkey. That’s how I cook a real good, and yeah, and I love seeing my people.

SuChin Pak  06:15

Then you host right. Oh, your host every year.

Kulap Vilaysack  06:18

I host Thanksgiving. I host Christmas. That’s why all this planning is necessary.

SuChin Pak  06:23

But you know what? I never even considered that. That’s the other thing. I’m like, who am I being this frantic for? It’s just the same tired old faces in this house. I see these faces every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, you know, like, so I need to just like slow down, but you’re opening your home people are coming in and out. If you don’t get on an early schedule. It’s no holidays for a lot of people, it’s not just you.

Kulap Vilaysack  06:52

What I love is making the holiday special for everybody. And what’s different this year, is that I’m just way more tired. Like we don’t we haven’t really gotten into this at all but, you know, I just didn’t really understand the invisible labor involved with motherhood. And truly I said just in June, we’re over here yesterday. She’s laughing she’s cackling just yesterday, and I have so much more respect for my girlfriends who have been mothers for years, how you got a single thing done. Everything takes so much longer for me, like just the case in point. Holidays, I’ve got two trees up. It took me many days, and we are we have to start early because it’s just taking me longer. And I have help. I have a village. There’s so much to think about like, always. Oh, so yeah, yeah.

SuChin Pak  06:53

No, I say all of those things are true, and plus, on top of the hosting that you do, I think if I had to host anything. No, that would be for me, it would be like a grave digging situation. Like just lay me down flat. I get this worked up, it’s an audience of two, you know, a nine year old an 11 year old who if I sent out some confetti and chocolate cake, they would be like this is the best day ever and yet, making this season so special and so memorable for them is such a crazy unhealed traumatic frenetic thing for me that like I was like, Whoa, like this year, I was like, this is insane the amount of thinking that I’m doing about this and I need to just actually put some guardrails into place.

Kulap Vilaysack  08:50

Some boundaries, I love that for you.

SuChin Pak  08:52

Some boundaries. Anyway, I say we say all this because we’re about to go shop.

Kulap Vilaysack  08:56

No, no, this is so I’m so glad you’re bringing this up. I honor your feelings. And like I said, our holiday season launch mere weeks ago. Please always bring that to the table. It couldn’t be more apropos for this episode. And you know, what we like to say on this show is you don’t have to get ready if you stay ready and we want you and our Carters to stay ready because you we are all shopping warriors.

SuChin Pak  09:23

And we’re tree time lovers. Yeah, okay, yeah, bring that right in. So we need to attack this now. In a way that’s going to feel frenetic because we want to schedule in enjoy time.

Kulap Vilaysack  09:36

These are strategies. These are survival tips. We want to make sure that we are thriving and soaring, soaring Sue.

SuChin Pak  09:46

So we’re going to take it together. You know hand in hand. Your little tiny dainty pawn mine, my giant farmer thumb hands, and we’re going to swing into these carts. You know that. Here we go. Let’s get into our carts.

Kulap Vilaysack  10:06

Chin Pak listeners back on Add to Cart. The good news is if you waited to buy your gifts take a breath Su, you shall be rewarded with deep discounts.

SuChin Pak  10:21

It’s my time this is my time to shine.

Kulap Vilaysack  10:23

This is your time.

SuChin Pak  10:25

This is my time to put my varsity jacket.

Kulap Vilaysack  10:28

So CNN BUSINESS reports online shoppers will be offered record setting discounts this holiday season, as retailers attempt to entice inflation wearing consumers to buy according to projections released by Adobe analytics, they they predict that holiday online sales will climb almost 5% above last year, so the retailers are poised to offer up to 35% off listed prices this holiday season and the deepest discounts applied to toys electronics and apparel.

SuChin Pak  10:59

If it’s not over 30.

Kulap Vilaysack  11:03

Don’t mess around.

SuChin Pak  11:04

It’s not a you can’t, don’t even call it don’t don’t come out now. You know what I mean? Come out with your 25% in January come out with it in spring and summer. But like at a minimum, it’s 30 and I’m talking 30 like because the ticket item is so big. But I’m looking for like a 40 dare I say 50?

Kulap Vilaysack  11:29

No, I think you dare you don’t dare Su, I with great care. I want your bodies to be right. Okay, and so the direction I’m going to start off with I want you to stay hydrated. I want you to be juicy to drink water. And something that you and I I don’t think I’ve talked on Mike about yet is we were both gifted this by who.

SuChin Pak  11:54

It just showed up. And thank you and thank you magic mine store thank you.

Kulap Vilaysack  12:00

That’s right Magic mine energy and focus drink shots. SuChin Pak, I, Su tried it first, she was like get on it.

SuChin Pak  12:03

Yeah, I texted you. I said, Ah, you get a box of tiny little green bottles. rip that open.

Kulap Vilaysack  12:18

These are drink shots. So stress relieving no jitters ashwagandha vitamin B 12. Vitamin C matcha green tea also has functional mushrooms in it. So this is like a 15 pack of two fluid ounces. I take it as a shot midday and you know pick me up. I still have coffee in the morning. SuChin does her way right, which is to cut it to cut it to extend one little shot for 48 hours.

SuChin Pak  12:44

You don’t want the full stink of this. You want to cut that scent.

Kulap Vilaysack  12:48

You’re saying that because you’re hyper you’re hypersensitive. Like that’s what we need to establish.

SuChin Pak  12:53

A little goes a long way because I’m not a coffee drinker.

Kulap Vilaysack  12:56

Yeah, you’re not a coffee drinker. So I’m doing both. It really does help. I thought I think it’s this amazing elixir. We both were like this is so good. But as we’re shopping and we’re looking, we’re hunting for that 45% off, we’re hunting for that 50 let’s elevate our frequency a little bit.

SuChin Pak  13:13

This is not paid for. We get a lot of stuff in the mail. Thank you very much. But there are very few things that make it to the group thread of like, hey, you probably haven’t opened it. I get to things a lot quicker than Ku, so it’s usually me being like Ku. By the way, someone who worked on this. I’m just looking at the scientific team, Dr. Andrew Weil. Okay, like he’s been doing this since he invented the space.

Kulap Vilaysack  13:40

Oh, the famous doctor.

SuChin Pak  13:42

Yes, yes, okay, man with the beard. But this is neuro tropics. And we’ve talked a little bit about this with Mahamudra. It also has Lion’s Mane Tumeric vitamin C Cordis up Rhodiola. You get the drift, like this is a little shot of all of these adaptogens and energetic herbal things go on.

Kulap Vilaysack  14:07

And so this could be a partial remedy for what SuChin was talking about. So they’re saying discover the secret to comb, long lasting energy and focus. And they’re saying it’s seven plus hours of dialed in energy. Now SuChin I want to say I think you’re diluting it too much is what I’m telling you right now.

SuChin Pak  14:27

You think I should up it after what I just told you is been?

Kulap Vilaysack  14:31

No but busy. I feel that this needs to bring you down.

SuChin Pak  14:36

Okay, so you’re saying that I’m watering it down too much. I need to hold back on that immigrant tendency.

Kulap Vilaysack  14:43

Yes. I think to made it more, I really feel that way. It’s just something to consider, we can play.

SuChin Pak  14:49

I love that feedback, I love good feedback.

Kulap Vilaysack  14:52

The other thing, that I’m adding to cart simply off of a recommendation from our Carter Chris Conlisk, he’s an artist from the Bay Area. He slid into our DMS in the most respectful way. He said highly.

SuChin Pak  15:06

Bthe way, our DMS are always respectful. Just FYI.

Kulap Vilaysack  15:10

Hi ladies. I love the show and listen religiously. I wanted to bring a product I found it’s called cryo brew. It’s brewed cacao. I started using it six months ago to not drink so much coffee. It’s great and makes me feel amazing. You should give it a try. I use the French roast. Thank you, sir. Add to cart, I will I will report back.

SuChin Pak  15:33

When we get a DM like this, and it’s so exactly what our brain is that it’s both thrilling and terrifying to know that we share such intimate vibes with a complete stranger. It boosts your immune system has magnesium it supports brain and heart health. I mean, there’s a lot of things in cacao and chocolate in general. That is so good. I love this, I mean to cart.

Kulap Vilaysack  16:00

There has been the only thing that I’m scared about, which is the recent reports of that a lot of dark chocolate that’s on the market. There’s a lot of like, have you heard the Su? That.

SuChin Pak  16:10

About that it’s contaminated?

Kulap Vilaysack  16:12

Yeah, yeah, that’s the one thing that I’m like, no, it’s the thing that I love the most please no.

SuChin Pak  16:18

So these kinds of smaller companies that like just do that thing. Like I’ve been researching a Japanese dark chocolate company that just does that. It’s kind of one way that you could be more rest assured that you’re not getting contaminated or fake. Dark chocolate, you know?

Kulap Vilaysack  16:38

Yeah so a lot of it is is for some of the chocolates is when they’re getting it from different places. It’s a lot harder to regulate. That’s an aside, that’s an aside but thank you to our Carter, really appreciate it. And it is so nice our community we’re helping one another. This is it takes a village to do what we’re trying to do shopping warriors.

SuChin Pak  16:59

Yeah, it takes a village. Yes. Helping, you know, sometimes we help and sometimes this is adds fuel to our mania. But I would say it’s all welcome.

Kulap Vilaysack  17:08

And all these things can happen all at once all of these things can be true.

Kulap Vilaysack  17:26

Right now, Su, I’m wearing blue light glasses for eyestrain. We’re staring at the screens, we’re looking at these online sales. Why don’t I tell you about a few glasses that I really like, now sometimes I forget to put them on. Oftentimes I forget. But let’s be kind to our eyes. Okay, and right now I’m wearing the TIJN Blue light glasses for women and men, they’re oversized frames. I like oversized frames for my face period because I got a big round plate. And so I find these to be very cute. I get a lot of compliments on the Zooms for these guys so cute. The other brand that I really like Peepers, Peepers sent um, you and I some free glasses. And these are the max square blue light blocking reading glasses.

SuChin Pak  18:16

29 bucks you guys, eye health, what are we talking about? What are your eyes worth to you? $29.

Kulap Vilaysack  18:23

Yeah, exactly. And so let’s continue on. Keep them balls lubed with eyedrops. So drying so dry and be keeping our eyes open while we’re scrolling through sales. These are the two eyedrops that I swear by now I’m a contact ware know that if I’m not wearing my glasses, so I like the refresh plus lubricant eyedrops they come individual.

SuChin Pak  18:48

So you can take them on the Google use.

Kulap Vilaysack  18:50

Take them on the go. And then if you’re somebody who has allergies, this was recommended to me by my up Tom, optometrist. Nope, that’s not right. optometrists, there we go. This is the Systane Zaditor antihistamine eyedrops for eye itch relief. The stuff is great.

SuChin Pak  19:11

The season especially out west here in California. We there’s just allergy season is every season, is every season, every season.

Kulap Vilaysack  19:23

The last thing is why I’m doing it right now. I’m grinding my feet right now. On this Protech Spiky Massage Ball. Getting the soles of my feet grind and pushing it down. we tense up Su, like right now I know your butthole is so tight right now. So much of Acupressure is in our feet. grinded down.

SuChin Pak  19:47

Great stocking stuffer.

Kulap Vilaysack  19:49

Great stocking stuffer great you know and I actually have two at my desk right now because maybe I want to grab both my feet. I mean I don’t want to take turns. Malmgren now that’s why I’m so chill these You’re all just strategies SuChin Pak and everything that I talked about is conveniently listed in my Amazon storefront hashtag add I get a little bit of money. When you click through, under stay ready shopping warrior. That’s it. Auntie Kuku helping you Su, to helping you out. Now I have one thing that’s gonna blow your mind, but I’m gonna save it into the very end. SuChin Pak, please tell us about your cart.

SuChin Pak  20:22

Now to go into like a, like a shopping weekend that’s coming up this week. You have to really figure out who you are and what you’re about. You can’t go in there being like, Well, I’m just gonna open up on Friday and see what’s up.

Kulap Vilaysack  20:40

Now’s not the time to find yourself.

SuChin Pak  20:43

No, it’s not the time. And there’s scammers out there. There’s deals that are pretending to be deals, it’s just waste of time. You know, I’m not going to send you out in Time Square without your panties on. You know, you need to be girded up and ready. So for me about October, I’m writing down the brands, that for me, I’m gonna hit on Friday, just to see what the discounts are. And I have a long list, probably maybe 25 of my most favorite brands, and they’re big stores, and they’re tiny little indie shops. And on Friday and over the weekend. I’m just hitting those. I’m not going just on the World Wide Web.

Kulap Vilaysack  21:25

And not going willy nilly.

SuChin Pak  21:27

No, no, no, no, I’m going to the exact place that I want. So I suggest you start getting that list together. And on this list. You know I have everything from like happy socks is a place I love you know, I love gifting socks. They have great sales to heritage brands. I’ve talked about this before Lacoste, before Gwyneth Paltrow jumped on that band again to revive it. These are brands that for me, bring me a lot of joy, and I shot them once a year at this time. So think about the brands you love, and go in with that to other hot tips. I love Michaels. I spend a lot of time at Michaels. It’s where Sonia and I get our best mother daughter time together. If you have the Michaels app. Fantastic, you should definitely download it. But a salesperson, they’re my favorite salesperson told me that the sales at Michaels go up on Sunday. So just hot tip. If you’re looking for something at Michaels, Sunday is the day that they go on sale. Number two, have you heard of this travel Tuesday?

Kulap Vilaysack  22:33

From you last year.

SuChin Pak  22:35

Not for me because I had never heard of it.

Kulap Vilaysack  22:37


SuChin Pak  22:37

Yeah, I’d never heard of it. This is travel Tuesday, apparently the Tuesday after Cyber Monday is where you can get insane deals on travel, flights, hotels, etc. So I’ve been planning this trip to Korea with my family for odd since before the pandemic finally happening next summer. And I haven’t bought the tickets yet or booked any hotels because I’m thinking maybe I’ll try this out on travel too. So I have no idea. I’d love to hear feedback from our audience. If you guys have actually done this if this has been actually got good dealings, yeah, this is what’s been going on in the travel industry I want I’m curious to see how legit it is. So I’m excited. I’m going to hold off on on planning any big travel things and see what’s happening on travel Tuesday. So that that’s my going into what this week is going to look like in terms of sales.

Kulap Vilaysack  23:34

I mean, high level strategies.

SuChin Pak  23:50

So for our longtime listeners, you guys know we’re obsessed with we talk about it all the time racket 10. It’s one of the easiest hacks to save money while you’re shopping. We’re going to tell you all about this. But in fact, it was actually a listener who first tipped us off to them, and that is the power of this obsessed shopping community that we’ve built here that we’ve gathered here really on Add to Cart.

Kulap Vilaysack  24:14

And if for some strange reason you have not heard of racket 10 Or are not using it. We are not here to judge but we do want to know why why do you not like to save money? Do you not get a thrill when you buy something and get cash back on what you just bought? Case in point when we found out our past guests Oscar Montoya and Mono Gabion. We’re not using rocket 10 we simply had them downloaded on the show in the middle of recording.

SuChin Pak  24:44

We said let’s pause Yeah, that’s right. Because that’s what an auntie does. It is so simple, okay, and this is the season so listen in. Rocket 10 is an app that gives you cashback on the stores you are already buying from, and deposits this into your PayPal account or via cheque directly to you. Yes, you heard me they cut checks to you.

Kulap Vilaysack  25:11

There are so many reasons to love Rocket10. They find the best deals, sales and coupons for you. So they’re doing the work. Okay, let’s not work harder, let’s work smarter. They are working to get the coupon codes that will save you time and money. It is actually you know what it is magic. It is a total game changer, especially over the holidays when you’re buying gifts for loved ones, friends, families, co workers, pets yourself, I repeat yourself, why not save while you shop?

SuChin Pak  25:43

Wow. You know, unlike Ku, I didn’t have enough foresight or organization to get my shopping done early. Instead my strategy is I wait for Black Friday. I go to the rocket 10 site with my list and then I click until Cartoon fire spurts from my fingers click click click. And this year, I want to say I have so many friends with babies. And what is cuter, I was thinking than getting all the babies in my life. Their first little pair of crisp white I learned this from our guests called tart. Air Force one’s.

Kulap Vilaysack  26:20

That’s so cool. It’s such a good idea SuChin like this is high level.

SuChin Pak  26:24

Continue tiny, tiny little foot,  tiny little foot in an Air Force One. Not even walking it just kicking around in a stroller is just done another brand for all those people in your life that have made hydration a lifestyle. I’m going to be the cool Auntie with the Stanley Quenchers you’re seeing everywhere on Tik Tok. Boom, boom, boom, stack, your savings.

Kulap Vilaysack  26:49

You’re seeing it right now in front of you, second one down. You go right back in for Cyber Monday. Honestly, by the time it’s Cyber Monday, I’m just scouring the internet for the best deals. It’s a sport at this point. I’m buying stuff for myself. And when there is 15% cashback, why not stocking up on Ray Bans, Levi’s, Dyson products and more.

SuChin Pak  26:50

So right about now you’re like, what’s the catch? What is it? Well, membership is free. It’s super fast to sign up and download. So like so few things in this life that just give it’s actually catch free. Download the racket 10 app or visit to start saving today.

Kulap Vilaysack  27:38

Now Sue, former guest, friend of the show, Lauren Lapkus sent me a spreadsheet of shopping codes.

SuChin Pak  27:46

What? What do you mean?

Kulap Vilaysack  27:48

Shout the fuck out to the shopping podcast. Gee, thanks. I bought it with Caroline moss. Wait SuChin Pak, hit the link and give it up to Queen Caroline, we thank you, hit it SuChin, what are you seeing? What are you seeing?

SuChin Pak  28:04

Oh my God. Wait, how big oh my god this list is massive.

Kulap Vilaysack  28:12

Okay, listeners I had to get her reaction. It’s all of the codes that Caroline Moss has gotten and she put it in one cozy, cozy place. This woman has done the work for us.

SuChin Pak  28:27

Skincare, jewelry, candles, books.

Kulap Vilaysack  28:32

Balsam Hill. Balsam Hill is on here. Okay, folks. Oh my gosh. She’s updating it. Like it’s different from yesterday. Oh my god, this woman is a saint. You guys got nibbling? When I tell you how expansive.

SuChin Pak  28:50

This is on another level. This makes what we’re doing here, like we’re just talking into cup, where a string you know, and being like […] and then this woman says well, why don’t I actually help? Why don’t I actually make a list of things that will make you truly shopping warriors?

Kulap Vilaysack  29:14

Yeah. and that oh, so she has codes and sometimes she’s like, I’m just letting you know about sales. There’s no codes needed. You know, at the time of this recording, she’s like, go to ban dough. No code needed because up to 60% off select party and comfy clothes.

SuChin Pak  29:30

Go to Olive in June 25% Off with her code shine25.

Kulap Vilaysack  29:35

Yeah, she’s so it’s not even just codes is just letting you know where the sales are like that’s, it’s just so nice. It’s so it’s so in the spirit of Christmas and she does this year round.

Kulap Vilaysack  32:03

Okay, well, let’s listen to some listeners. Carter’s we asked you to divulge your tips and tricks for surviving holiday shopping. Here’s Alison with her plan of attack.

Allison  32:12

I love Christmas shopping. Everyone loves Christmas shopping, right? The thing that makes it easy and fun, though, is a spreadsheet. Like it’s just a fucking spreadsheet. You’ve got to have a column for everybody who needs gift. You got to have a column have it’s been has it been purchased? Has it arrived? Has it been wrapped? You need to set yourself up for success. Otherwise, it’s chaos. Alright, thanks.

Kulap Vilaysack  32:39


SuChin Pak  32:40

Wait, categories. Has it arrived? Would has been wrapped you do you have this spreadsheet?

Kulap Vilaysack  32:44

I have a version of it. That’s color coded in a doc but you know what? I should have a spreadsheet. Allison, you know, and let me just go there. Because when you order so much, Su. It’s easy to like lose track of stuff. I ordered it did it come sometimes in the midst of the things prior to my knowledge, not one deadline? I’m like, did I order it? I have to check if I ordered it. Oh, no, did it come? You know, all these things? Like it’s nice to, especially when you’re out in the world to be able to glance and know to know for sure. No double buying nothing falls through the cracks that way, SuChin, stratigies, of successful people.

SuChin Pak  33:23

Yeah, I just think that, you know, I have this foolish notion that I keep it all, you know, in this matrix, but none of it. None of it is actually there. If I were to sit here and be like, if someone were to say, what have you bought? I would be drawing a blank right now. And I’ve bought so much.

Kulap Vilaysack  33:40

Su, I hope the advice of other Carter’s is helping lower your blood pressure if just.

SuChin Pak  33:46

No, I know by a lot bit. I felt I’m going to use your word from your therapist dysregulated up at the top and now I feel like I have I have a plan and I’m not alone.
