Ask, and she shall save $$$

Ask, and she shall save $$$

Yesterday I was at Home Depot picking up another can of paint for a bedroom. Before I ask the associate to mix up the can of paint I asked her if Home Depot was going to have another paint sale soon. She said, yes! The sale starts on Thursday! She then explained to me that if I purchase the paint now, I could come in with my receipt for my $10 off per can of paint. I also happened to have picked up a gallon of paint this past Sunday too. That’s another smooth $20 in savings by just asking about upcoming sales! Ask, and she shall save some more money! Asking in my book is a given. It doesn’t hurt to ask, and sometimes you’ll get a surprising answer that will light you up with a huge smile!

The Amazon misconception

The Amazon misconception

Saving money couldn’t be easier!
Believe it or, not… people shop Amazon without really checking prices. Amazon is not the lowest seller of products! That’s a total misconception!
Here’s the proof. You can try it yourself with just about any product.
Ninja Professional Blender & Nutri Ninja Cups (BL660)

Amazon has it for $119.99
Ninja Blender on Amazon

Best Beyond has it for $87.99
They also offer the blender with free shipping, and no sales tax!
Ninja Blender on Best Beyond

It only took me 30 seconds to save $32.00!
And with the added savings by not shopping with Amazon, I’m going to add the money to my house projects!
Like I said… shopping exclusively with Amazon is a waste of time, and money. Most items you can find less expensive.
I call this the “Amazon misconception”

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…
