OM Gosh!

The End to Winter Blues

This last Winter it seems it was our families turn to be unhealthy. Normally we are all pretty healthy with no complaints. But this Winter everyone one of us either had an affliction, an injury, medical emergency or some virus constantly visiting our home leaving us tired, immobile, coughing, achy and irritable.

Getting Into Gear

Filed Under: OM Gosh!

After the Fall and Holiday shopping madness that normally descends on us here, I usually shut down for a week or two to try and recoup. Recouping and resting after Christmas has been firmly on my schedule for the last 10 years. But family was in town and things were scheduled and I didn’t rest

DLM Off Price Closing

The New Year can sometimes bring depressing news, especially in retail.

Along with some of the major big retailers downsizing or disappearing, I got the news that DLM Off Price is closing

A Few Days Away

Summer speed by so quickly that we were almost left without any breathing room. A hasty getaway was arranged at the last minute and we went off on basically a road trip up to the Central Coast.

We didn’t have a real itinerary, but wanted to land in Paso Robles for at least for two days of wine tasting.

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.

Costco Fun

We shop Costco like we’d shop Ralphs or Vons. Stopping in every week or so to pick up specific items. We take a list and usually get in and out as quick as possible.

One of the more fun aspects of shopping at Costco is tasting all the samples being given out. We don’t normally taste ALL of them, just a few.  But last week we made the mistake of shopping in the late afternoon while we were both hungry.

BargainsLA Peeps are the BEST

Filed Under: Inside Scoop, OM Gosh!

Sometimes doing this “BargainsLA” thing is stressful for me. I tend to worry…. Not only do I want all of you guys to find great deals and be happy with the product, I also want the sales and discounters I write about to be happy with you guys as shoppers.

Unexpected Expenses

Filed Under: Zannee's Tips, OM Gosh!

It always amazes me how fast we can go from not needing anything, to needing a lot.

Literally a month ago, we didn’t need anything. I had a full closet, all of our furniture was in great shape, our refrigerator was running perfectly, my daughter had a retainer, I had plenty of skin care product, my cell phone worked and our car’s breaks didn’t squeak.

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.

Serious Shopping Spree

Last week, after I had finished cleaning out my closets and drawers, I was stunned to see how my wardrobe had diminished significantly… basically, I had nothing to wear from all the gaps in my wardrobe. Time to get some new clothes!
