Did you see the “30 Rock” episode last week about IKEA tearing couples apart? Well it’s true. Me and my wife, forewarned having just watched the show, went shopping this weekend for a new mattress and got in a little fight. Now we didn’t go to IKEA, we went to Sears, but otherwise it was pretty much the same thing. Little issues get amplified as you try to make a decision when confronted with an almost infinite number of options that you will have to live with for years and spend a significant amount of money on.
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Once again I’m gonna share with you some of my secrets. Firstly, you can start with the tips from last year here. Follow up with my sure fire anniversary tips here. Then hit the jump for a recent discovery my wife clued me in on that will let you save up to 1/2 off you restaurant tab and make you look better, not worse in your date’s eyes.
Oddly enough this came up today at Savings.com. You would think something so simple would be common knowledge among us savvy shoppers here, but apparently not. Big Lots, 99¢ Stores, and many other places selling close-outs also sell groceries.
I ducked out during my lunch break, splurged on a cartload of goodies and spent all of $37!
I often get blank looks when I try to explain to friends what it is I do for Savings.com in my daily Deal Entry capacity, so I figured I’d explain a little, and in the process explain why Savings is your best bet for finding coupons and online discount codes. I must admit though, when I first started, I had no idea how much money I was wasting in my online shopping by not using the online coupon sites. Believe me when I tell you that I am now making up for lost time…
I’m a little frustrated at the moment with the users of Craigslist, and by that I mean the entire population of this country. Its bad enough that when placing an ad we all have to worry about the flood of spam we know is going to come, and don’t want to list our phone number lest we get robocalls. Then when the shoes on the other foot we have to call and call or email again and again and get no response. So I figured I’d set out a few guidelines, and also vent my frustrations.
