Setting Priorities

I love this season of Sample and Warehouse sales!!! So many of my favorite brands are available at rock bottom pricing.  But reality dictates you can’t go to all the dozens and dozens of sales every week.

Benefits of Complaining Nicely

With El Nino on the way, we recently had some roofing maintenance work done on our home by J and J Roofing Company. We were being pro-active. We had not had any leaks and wanted to make sure we wouldn’t.

The Hunt for Rain Barrels

Last Fall we planted our drought tolerant gardens. But since many of the plants are still young, they had to be regularly watered over the summer so they’d survive. Even with twice a week hand watering I lost about 10 plants. Drought tolerant doesn’t mean you never have to water. You just water less… but, you still have to water

Tell ‘em BargainsLA sent ya!

You can’t assume anything when you’re bargain shopping. If a product is discounted, there is a reason. I want to find out why.

When I research, I ask direct questions. How did the product get here? What year is it from? Who liquidated it? How can they sell it so cheaply? Anything wrong with it?

Prepping for the Winter

We’ve been through a few very wet Winters here in L.A. We’ve had yards and carports flood, dealt with leaky roofs and windows. This year we are doing our best to get a handle on preventing wet weather issues.

So with winter coming and a strong El Nino prediction, we have taken on a few chores to weather proof our home this last month.

These days around BargainsLA, we’re gearing up for our busiest season of the year, The Holiday Warehouse Sale Shopping Season.

We get super busy with the end of the year Sample & Warehouse Sales starting at the end of October and reaching a fever pitch by late November.

We Pounce, We Score!

We always try to visit outlets and discounters that are out of our immediate neighborhood when we happen to be in their area. A trip to the inland empire this last weekend to visit a family friend had us stopping at a couple of places. 

Sometimes we pop into stores we’ve already researched to shop and see how they’re doing… so we popped into Price Coast Outlet in Montclair to do both.

Know Your Limitations

Filed Under:

We all have our limits when we shop. Limits on how hard we’ll work to get a deal. What we’ll do or what we expect when we’re shopping. Things that don’t bother me, cause other people to get annoyed. Ya gotta know your limits!

Feels Like Camping

We use to be avid campers when our daughter was little. But for a regular vacation it got to be a bit too much work to go every year. We wanted a bit more R & R when we got away. So now we only camp every few years.

Lately I’ve been feeling like I’m camping out at my own home. Between water conservation and electricity conservation, it feels a bit like camping.

Estate Sale Finds

I have a “thing” about earthquakes. Outside of being as prepared as we can, I have a couple issues stemming from previous earthquakes including,  using museum wax to secure statues, art glass and paintings in my house.  I also hate to stop on the freeway under an overpass for fear of it collapsing and I won’t hang anything over my bed that could fall on and kill me during an earthquake.
