Schlocky Work

A girl has the right to change her mind.

6 months ago I raved about Turf Terminators. This free service pulls up your lawn and replants and landscapes it with gravel and drought tolerant plants for free. They however take your rebate, which depending upon where you live, can be sizable. ... But I’ve changed my mind.

Bargain Mentality

I’m not sure when my conscious bargain frugalness kicked in. But as long as I can remember, I’ve always been trying to get things for less.

Yes, my Mom was the Queen of Bargain Shopping and yes moms have a great influence over their kids. I did rebel a bit ….my first credit card was a Saks Fifth Ave Card and my go to store in my teens was Judy’s. But I always scanned the sales racks first.

New Yard

While most people were hitting the after Christmas Sales at their local mall, hubby and I got deep into the final planting of our drought tolerant landscape project.

Planting in cold, wet ground is a test of ones resolve. But we had to finish!

Warehouse Sale Bargains!

It was too chilly to work on our landscaping project early this last Sunday Morning, so I headed out to a few sales till the weather warmed up.

I do post sales I haven’t been to before, but then I get nervous and have to go by and check ‘em out. Which is exactly what I did with the Gift, Candle and Home Décor Warehouse Sale.

Wow, what a sale!

Overstock Wonderland!

This last weekend I got to go see the new location of the Overstock SuperCenter at the Irvine Market Place. What a treat!

Situated between Bed Bath and Beyond and Babies R Us, this new location is 3 times the size of the original. I was mesmerized with the huge range of home furnishings and home decor product here.

Holiday Shipping Tips

This time of year, those of us with out of town friends and family are scrambling to find gifts online or in-store, in time to mail for Christmas delivery.

But what if you handmade the gift or found something special at a sample or warehouse sale. You’ll have to package and mail it yourself.

Landscaping Update

With 7 weeks to go, I can honestly say we’re up to our necks in dirt. I have given up all hope of being clean for more than a few hours a day. But the 2 yards are coming along.

We’ve dug out the pathway in our back yard to put in a decomposed granite trail, shoveling the excess dirt into a heap. To keep our costs down until we get the rebate, we’re using our existing pea gravel ....

Happy Anniversary

Filed Under: Inside Scoop, Consumer, OM Gosh!

Somehow we missed BargainsLA’s 15 year Anniversary….Really! Not sure how we got so bogged down in work and life that we didn’t take notice. But, in late October 1999, BargainsLA launched with little fanfare.

Holiday Shopping

This year we have to cut back on our Holiday gift giving. We just bought a car and have the drought tolerant landscaping expenses that are eating into our budget and depleted our resources. So hubby and I are not giving each other big gifts and have tight limits what we can spend.

But that won’t stop me from giving my family, neighbors, clients some gifts!
