Saving money is just plain smart, but you also need to save it with purpose, usefulness and saving your own sanity to boot!

Back to school already?

Back to school already?

Is it me or, has anyone seen advertising for back to school already?
It’s still June, right???
Office Depot has already started to run ad’s for back to school specials. They’re giving 20% Off during their sale, but I know you’ll be able to find better deals going forward.
The only issue at times is that things run out of stock. I think I’d wait until after July 4th to start to browse the stores as to what the best deals are going to be for this school year.
Right after the clearance sale that most stores have right after the 4th of July is when you start to see things really hit the shelves for back to school. I personally look at shopping at the local stores first. You’d be surprised as to what kind of deals you can find at your locally owned stores! After searching the local stores is when I’ll look at the Kmart’s
Trust me… I do shop online, but I also know from the past where I can get the deals, and a, Targets, Fred Meyers etc… The last resort is online store. You tend to pay more if you shop online for these item versus the brick and mortar stores. One in a while you may find a deal, but school supplies are tough to beat with prices when you shop locally. I believe in shopping locally first, and after that I’ll go online. Online is convenient, but locally is where you’ll find the best deals when it comes to the back to school type items.
BTW… Back to school in June already? Please Office Depot! Let’s first enjoy some summer with the family before we need to flood our brains with back to school!
I also need to work on my tan. How can I go shopping when I look like a pasty ghost?

Home Depot possible additional savings!

Home Depot possible additional savings!

Did you know that Home Depot will honor a sale price for up to 90 days?
Keep in mind that if you purchase a grill that maybe on sale today may go down again in price after Labor Day! Please check the return policies with that particular Home Depot grill such as returned time frame, and you can reap the benefits of additional savings if the price goes down again by just contacting Home Depot.
Why wait until Labor Day for the great deals when you can purchase it today, and get that great price later?

A special place…

A special place…

In order to sooth your soul, do you have a special place to can go to in order to get away from everything, and just relax?
My special place is by a waterfall. It’s called “Fairy Falls”. Your special place can be something much different from that.
You may have a park, a coffee shop, the golf course or, maybe something totally different!
It’s part of taking care of yourself, and to save your sanity. The littlest things can make a world of difference just by
having that special place.

Taking time to love ourselves…

Taking time to love ourselves…

With what life throws at us on a daily basis, do we ever take enough time to love ourselves? Work, home, family, kids etc… can cause us to lose touch with ourselves!
Why is this post so important in my opinion?
Before we can get into saving money wisely, we need to give ourselves a hug.
This blog isn’t just about saving money. It’s about saving our sanity too! That’ a HUGE savings!
Before we continue, let’s grab that cup of love, and relax.
Loving ourselves is something we just don’t do enough of…
