Overstock.com BS

We wanted a new living room rug for our new abode. Our old one was too dark in the new living room.

I surfed the web and haunted local warehouse sales looking for the perfect rug. I found 3 I liked on Overstock.com. Then I waited for Black Friday when I knew the discounts should go up to 25% off their already discounted price.

Black Friday Shopping

I’m not really a Black Friday kinda gal. Too many people shopping, with too few really good deals. Plus I’m usually recovering from Turkey overload to rush out and shop.

And really, it’s Always Black Friday at BargainsLA!

That said, these deals and discounts caught my eye.

Caring for a Favorite Leather Jacket

Filed Under:

Back in the late 2000’s, I found a gorgeous, deliciously soft, black lambskin leather jacket by For Joseph at Shopaholic Sample Sales boutique for a ridiculous $89. Original retail, as I recall was around $389.  Shopaholic Sample Sales are famous for their amazing fashion deals.  Though it was an unplanned purchase, I was thrilled with my prize.

I wore the jacket everywhere.

Shoes for Hubby … and Me.

Outlet Malls, as a whole, are not really discount outlets any more. So much Special Purchase product or just a small corner with a “Sale” sign.  But if you love a specific line and want a good selection, it’s sometimes worth going out of the way to shop.

Such was our case.

Dumb Shopping Mistakes

Our recent move went super smoothly. We only realized after we moved into a cute new abode, how much stuff we needed.

One absent irritation I tried to fix was getting new daily placemats. I had thrown out our old cork backs, hard placemats due to their age and signs of wear.

Seems simple right?

Fry’s Mystifies

For years, Fry’s was the “Go To” for all things electronic. From Home Theater to appliances and all sorts of gadgets, this was the place. The staff was smart, helpful, the selection was massive and prices … low!

I was stunned how small the crowds were and how nearly empty the shelves were. WT Heck happened?

Organizing a New Space

So we sold our home and moved into, what we hope will be a just a year or two rental in a cool little Bungalow House.

But we’ve been spoiled. Most rentals don’t have great closet space or upgrades many homes have. Our new places closet space is, in a word….awkward. The blinds are from Home Depot, the electrical is older and the tile counters are original.

So we’re making adjustments and fixing a few areas we can fix.

Home Sale Adventure

With our daughter moved out, we’d been pondering the sale of our home this Summer but knew we had to make the house sparkle to get the price we wanted. Getting it back in shape mattered to our bottom line.

We decided to get busy fixing the house back up to where it should be. The needed vacation would have to wait.
