Bad Car

I have never been driven to buy or drive a car to satisfy my ego. For me it’s always been about getting from point A to point B safely, at a reasonably low cost. So back in the 80’s I started buying and driving Hondas.

I was happy with Hondas…they ran forever and only had a few repairs with regular basic maintenance of the car.

Back Yard Confusion

t has been total confusion at my house. This week the fence actually started getting built.  The yard between our offices and house is a chaotic mess while the new long fence is going in.

I don’t do well in confusion

Pitfalls of Doing it Yourself

We are not brain surgeons or craftsman. But we are capable of doing things out of our realm of expertise. After recovering from the price shock after we received several quotes for replacing our back fence last Summer, ($2000-$4000), we did what a lot of people do when they are in shock. Nothing…. But only for awhile. Then we got busy.

New Kitty Adoption

Filed Under: Zannee's Tips, Consumer

This last week our wonderful kitty, Oliver got nabbed by a coyote. 

It’s hard enough losing a well loved pet, but we also had to watch our other little kitty, Rosie, grieve. She meowed incessantly while pacing around the yard and house looking for him. Then she slept a lot, most of the day and most the night. She’d wait for him by her food bowl at dinner time.

Amazon Prime

Outside of celebrating St Patrick’s Day, today we are pondering the Amazon Prime increase fro $79 annually to $99 annually. Amazon student Prime will increase from, $39-$49.

These increases are not huge, but enough to cause us to ponder the benefits of the expense.

Our Nordstroms Rack Visit

Sunday I was letting my daughter get some practice drive time in before she takes her driving test. She was with me when we pulled into Glendale’s Nordstrom’s Rack parking Lot to practice parking in an insanely busy lot.  Upon seeing the Rack, suddenly the litany of items she needed become long and varied. So I said, OK… let’s go shopping

Bargain Shopping in Van Nuys

It’s always weird around here when a Holiday falls on a Monday.  First, my kid is out of school and wants me to take her places. Second, it’s normally a big posting research day for me, but if it’s a holiday, I tend not to get the info I need to post. Seems a lot of folks are blowing off the day.

So yesterday, Presidents Day, I decided to do some research instead of working in the office

Shopping off the Beaten Path

I love snooping around neighborhoods I don’t normally shop. Discovering small mom and pop outlets, resale boutiques or warehouses is more fun when you don’t know they are there.

So last week while seeking out a new outlet store, we drove down into Pico Rivera by following Telegraph Rd South from the Citadel Outlets.

Driving Around L.A.

Filed Under: Zannee's Tips, Fashion, Sales

Most of us dread the Los Angeles area driving scene. Our freeways are always crowded as are our street. Because of this, I know a lot of bargain hunters that hate to go into downtown for Sample Sales or driving out of their way for Warehouse Sales or outlets. But there are ways to diminish or circumvent some of these issues.
