Always tell ‘em BargainsLA sent ya!

You can’t assume anything when you’re bargain shopping. If a product is discounted, there is a reason. I want to find out why.

When I research, I ask direct questions. How did the product get here? What year is it from? Who liquidated it? How can they sell it so cheaply?

Disappointed

Maybe I shouldn’t be so hopeful. Or maybe it’s this seriously wacko election… or maybe I just thought the current laws in place would protect consumers. But I recently learned, for a fact that many well known Sample Sales sites ask their vendors to over inflate the retail price so the discounts look steeper. What a disappointment!

Sale Season Savvy

Filed Under: Zannee's Tips, Fashion, Sales

It’s here. The biggest Sample and Warehouse Sale season of the year. From mid October to December 22, more Sample Sales and Warehouse Sale occur than at any other time of the year. We started getting besieged with information last week.

With the glut of sales happening all at the same time, there is no possible way you’ll be able to go to every sale you want to. But you can prepare to pounce on some outstanding buys at the sales you do attend.

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.

The Sanctuary Warehouse Sale

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.
His coming along with me also helps stop me from buying.

But this sale I had to shop!

The Truth About Sample Sales

Sample Sales have changed dramatically over the last 20 years. What used to be a term for a designer showroom sale of samples from the previous season, has turned into a term to describe everything from an overproduction sale to a used closing sale….And everything in between.

The Discerning Saturday Sale Shopper

I popped into the Saturday Sale this week. Hadn’t been since last Summer.  It seemed smaller than normal, but it was their first sale of the year…. Perhaps 25 vendors. This can be a hit or miss sale, if you don’t know what you’re looking at.  But when you do, it’s a hit!

Being In the Know

Filed Under: Inside Scoop, Sales

I’m pretty good about getting sales information published in a timely manner. Most companies contact me a week or two ahead. But some don’t.  Even with that, I know how to dig up sales information. But still, sometimes I don’t get notified and don’t see the information anywhere.

Using Self Control

Checking on Sample and Warehouse sales can be costly for me. I try to go to at least one a week, if not 3-4 to make sure they are still really good. I also like to research new, not as well known sales as well. The last 6-weeks though, I have been making regular purchases at these sales. Not huge purchases, but enough to squeeze our budget.

My latest shopping foray was to the Chic Little Devil Sale.
