New Savings for the New Year!


Did you know?

That during the 1st half of
January that prices of t.v.s drop
because retailers try to lure customers
 back to stores after the  holidays. So
act fast because prices go back up again
in the 2nd half of January because as
Superbowl approaches football fans
want new flat screens for the big game.

Did you know?

That every January electronic
manufacturers like to show the New
Years models like digital cameras,
gaming systems, and other gadgets
at trade conventions before shipping
them out to stored in Februrary? Since
it's so hard to sell older models when new
ones arrive. So they offer the older ones at
deep discounts!


If you have been longing for a vacation
now's the time to travel! Since travel
season is officially over, airline, hotel,
and car rental prices bottom out. So this
is a perfect time to book a getaway for
half of what you'd pay for the rest of
the year!

2015 styles of recliners, sofas, tables, and
lamps and other furniture arrive in showrooms
in Februrary!You can save 50% in January as
retailers scramble to sell off 2014 models to make
room for new inventory!

new gifts replaced. That's great news since 
the sudden spike drives down the prices, that
helps you get better deals on everything from

Tip 1:

Slash your after Christmas grocery/shopping
 bill by 75%!

When you are in the supermarket look for for
household products with Christmas themed 
packaging. Products such as dish washing 
liquid, soap, tissues, and candies. They're 
usually marked down by as much as 75%
as stores hurry  to get rid of holiday items 
that didn't sell!

Mama needs a new (or not so new) pair of work shoes!

(laughing) What a title... hey?
I needed another pair of work
shoes so I was thinking of how
I could get them for the lowest
price possible. I was thinking
maybe going around to some
of the thrift stores in my area
then I was thinking maybe not.
Used shoes hmm from a thrift
store? Maybe and this is a BIG
maybe. They would have to be
gently used or practically new
and only if I ran out of options.
So since I'm not out of options
I shopped around other stores
like Kmart, Payless and Walmart.
Payless was my first stop. Wow
the prices o their work shoes are
highway robbery! Payless my aunt
Fannie!(lol) So my next stop was
Kmart(Next) same thing here and
to top it off they were hideous! So
my last stop was Walmart(Bingo!)
Got some decent work shoes for
$24.97! Didn't want to pay that
 much but hey sometimes you
gotta splurge!

Before old work shoes:

After new work shoes!:

Have you ever had to buy works
shoes? If so how much did you
have to pay for them? Did they
cost a lung and a kidney? (lol)
If you were able to find some
at a reasonable price let me
know in the comments!
