Buying Cheap Stuff….Cheap

My first choice in shopping for anything is to always buy the best quality I can afford. Most of the time this is a much better deal than a cheap item that is made poorly. So much so that I often do without until I can afford a better quality item.

But there are times when you should buy cheap items, cheap. These times are when I go to $1 Store or a Thrift store first.

Curtailing Water Use

Governor Jerry Brown has mandated a 25% statewide reduction in our water use and is backing it up with fines for non compliance. Personally I’m not happy with how we got here. Or how certain groups don’t have to follow the mandate. But the fact remains that we are here. Until the problem is solved we need to make more changes to our lifestyles to deal with the water shortage. Southern California is a semi dessert and our water use should reflect that.

Last week, after I had finished cleaning out my closets and drawers, I was stunned to see how my wardrobe had diminished significantly… basically, I had nothing to wear from all the gaps in my wardrobe. Time to get some new clothes!

Annoying Contractor Calls

If you own a home, you probably get several calls a week for annoying contractors. They just keep calling and calling. Doesn’t matter if you hang up on them. Politely tell them you have nothing that needs to be done. Rudely tell them to go away…. They are relentless.

Spring Addictions

OK, I admit it…. I’m enchanted with Estate Sales. These happen all year long.  But, for us, Spring seems to be the most fun time to go

Estate Sales like Real Estate Open Houses let you see the interiors of some amazing, architecturally beautiful older homes. These homes that for the most part, are well equipped and decorated with better to high end furniture,  artwork, décor and household items.

Discount Movie Theaters in Los Angeles

I grew up in a home that never missed the Oscars…. Even if we hadn’t seen all the nominated films.  We love going to the movies. Of course, we passed our love of film on to our kid, who is now a bonafide movie buff!

But seeing a movie now at a theater, is an expensive experience.

Why You Should Pounce

Great deals come and go, so pouncing is essential. Change is ongoing and continuous in business, which can have a big effect on what kind of products you can find for less.

Valentines Ideas

Lavish gifts are not usually part of our Valentines Day. We like to do special things for each other and spend time together instead. Something that shows extra bit of thoughtfulness, imagination and fun.
