Los Angeles Flower Markets

Flowers are a big deal and a big expense on Valentines Day. So why pay top dollar when you can go shop the Los Angeles Flower district and save 20%-50%?

The Flower District of Downtown Los Angeles is a 6 block floral marketplace, located within the LA Fashion District. Bordered between 9th St & 7th and Maple & San Pedro streets.

Valentines Day Chocolate Cake

Filed Under: Bargain Buys, Zannee's Tips

Ok, I love chocolate….I bet you do too.

But with that love comes some odd parameters. I don’t love getting a box of chocolate…. unless it’s something outrageously unique. It’s too much work regulating how much I eat at any one sitting. I also won’t drink chocolate milk. But I do love an exceptional chocolate cake.

Value Perceptions

For awhile now I have noticed polar opposites in perception of what real retail is, based on the area of Southern California that you shop.

Visits to Furniture outlets and stores in the Valley, Warehouse sales on the Westside of L.A as well as Flea Markets in DTLA and Fairfax District have shown surprising discrepancies in pricing on similar era, quality and designs.

The Worst Holiday Gifts Ever

Filed Under: Zannee's Tips, Consumer

I am a firm believer in not procrastinating getting your Holiday Shopping done.  Waiting too long narrows your options and then you’re left with begging the gift receiver to tell you what they want. Then you feel that you have to buy it. No imagination, no effort. And often the wrong gift.

Why Free Shipping is So Important

Now that we are paying sales tax on internet purchases, getting free shipping is super important.

If you reside in California, besides the 9.75% sales tax you will pay on the product, if there are additional, separate shipping charges, you will also pay sales tax on those charges as well.

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
