Wasteful Purchases

Too much of our lives are full of wasteful, disposable items that end up in landfills. We buy these items usually because they are financially cheaper than their counterparts. But the price we pay is bigger than we know

A Needed Break

Everyone needs a break. We really needed one, more than usual and so we took a few days last week, drove up and hit the hiking trails in Yosemite.

Having been to Yosemite well over a dozen times, we thought we’d seen everything. But this year, because of the massive snowfall this last Winter, there were more waterfalls than I had ever seen. We didn’t know half their names and I stopped counting at 22.

Some of my best deals ever came from Thrifts.

Valentines Day is Coming!

The word here is thoughtful. Retailers want you to buy that piece of fine jewelry, those long stem Red Roses in a box, that delectable meal at an expensive restaurant.

Don’t get me wrong, those are all good things to do and you should do, if you have the financial ability.

However, some of us don’t.

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

Retail Pricing

Retail pricing! OY! What a headache that is for shoppers to figure out.  As we have all seen, Retailers will hide, manipulate and deceive you.  With Macys, Khols, JC Penny and Sears finally getting sued for misleading comparison pricing. Here’s what we all need to know.
