Having it All for Less

Many Southern Californian’s are associated in some way with the entertainment industry. Actors, Crew & Craft Services, Writers, Directors, Production Assistants and more live on just about every street. Most hustle for every gig and need to look great, and keep up appearances even when they’re in between jobs.  Stretching your dollar is paramount to stay ahead of the game.

Annoying Calls

Our business, BargainsLA works out of our home office. We have only one land line for both the house and the business. Though we used to get lots of phone calls and at one time had two separate phone lines, we are down to one and are now considering cutting that line as well.

Back to School Blues

Filed Under: Zannee's Tips

Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! The local school bells awakened me this morning at 7:00 am. I really shouldn’t complain. I have been lucky enough to have started sleeping later since my daughter graduated High School. My 19 years of 6am waking up are finally over.

No Score Shopping

It’s time to spruce up the bedroom.  My favorite quilt and shams are starting to show some age. So I have been on the hunt for a new Duvet set.

Lately I have been dragging hubby with me to check out new outlets and sales. Not just because I enjoy his company, but because he often has insight into businesses and pricing that I don’t.

Surprising Deals

Yee Gads!  Our 8-year-old counter top microwave bit the dust. So spoiled is my family, that we had to immediately go find another one.  We really only use it for reheating. But that convenience is too important.

I was not going to be rushed into this purchase. I had to find one at a good price.
