According to a recent article on the environmental blog Grist, we have Walmart to thank for our stuff falling apart.
The argument goes like this: thanks to Walmart's never-ending quest to

of clothing, electronics, and other items. This means we have to replace
our stuff more, which in turn means we're spending more and doing
damage to the environment.
If it's time for your next refrigerator or dishwasher, plan to purchase it on a Sunday. More people are searching for information about appliances on Sundays, and retailers have taken notice and have dropped their prices accordingly.
The best days to purchase clothing online actually vary depending on the particular item. Men's and women's dress slacks are cheapest on Mondays, men's clothing is cheapest on Tuesdays and the best deals on kid's clothes can be found on Wednesdays. Intimate apparel and outerwear can be found for a bargain on Saturdays, and if you're shopping for swimsuits, plan to do it on a Sunday. By shopping on these days, average savings range from 40 to 52 percent.

I recently had the unfortunately experience of having the bearing go on my dryer and had to decide if I would fix it or replace it. This is never an easy choice and was especially painful because it's the most convenient, easy to use dryer we've ever owned.

One of the benefits of living in Santa Monica is its proximity to the ocean lends itself to more temperate weather during the hot summer months. Unlike Valley residents, beach dwellers can usually keep cool through the use of fans rather than more expensive and energy draining A/C.
While I'm a proponent of the basic box fan, there are more decorative alternatives for those who prefer form to function. I bring you Deco Breeze fans which combines both form AND function.
If you bought a single ice blended coffee drink every morning for a year at one of the big coffee chains, at more than $3 for even the small sizes, you're talking more than $1,000. That's more than most people are paying each year for cable or internet access!
Several companies are trying to cash in on the phenomenon while easing the cost of your habit with home frappe machines--but how do you know if any of them are good? Well, this is one of those times where writing for a savings site has its advantages because, courtesy of Mr. Coffee, for the last few weeks my husband and I got to test out a Café Frappe machine (list price $79.99, but we found it at several places for at least $10 less).
This awesome invention isn't anything new, really, but a very cool and strange gift idea nonetheless. After all, it's essentially just a toaster and heater, but 1) it's adorable in its 1950s retro plastic baby blue and chrome casing, 2) your toast demands that you bite it (mm, don't mind if I do!) and 3) it's actually useful in making a delicious breakfast and is something you can use every day: i.e. not a waste of money.
