Labor Day Weekend Sales

This weekend is more than just the end of summer. Labor Day means a lot of stores are putting things on sale at deep discounts. Traditionally, one of the biggest items to go on sale is mattresses and bedding. I don’t know why. I don’t see a connection between the end of summer and needing a new mattress.

Strangely enough I do need a new mattress. But it seems like all the mattresses for a queen size bed are starting at $600 and easily go up to $1,500. Even with all the sale prices and coupons with lots of fine print, I can’t find a good mattress for less than $600. I guess I will have to head out to a store and try to bargain with a sales manager to get the price down lower.

Decent Prices on Fender Amps

Josh was telling me that he was hoping to find a decent price on a Fender Amp and then use the money that he earned last month to purchase a new one. I suggested that he consider buying a used, refurbished one, but I don’t know if he is going to take my advice. Sometimes refurbished items have good warranties on them and you can save a lot of money on them. I hope he takes his time and does a lot of comparison shopping – and check around online, too. I think the money is burning a hole in his pocket!

Credit cards are good for business

In today’s economy, more consumers are relying on credit cards to help them get through these rough times. I like to use credit cards to help me keep track of where my money goes, and I like to use my cards that give me cash rewards. I don’t usually carry much cash around with me, as I’m always afraid of someone stealing my wallet. That means that if a business does not accept credit cards, chances are that I won’t do business with them! 

Guitar strings

After watching the YouTube video about the Ernie Ball Guitar strings, Nikky told me that she was going to go ahead and order the ernie ball 2221 for Steve. She says that now she’s sure that was what he said that he needed to get, and since she found a really great price for them by shopping around online she wasn’t too concerned about wasting money if she ordered the wrong ones by mistake.

Breathtaking table linens

I have gotten really tired of the table linens on the tables in my parlor, so I decided to go shopping online and see if I could find something with some “Wow” factor that I could use to replace them. I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking for, but when I saw the sequined over-lay tablecloths for sale at the premier table linens website I was pretty sure that I found exactly the right table-cloth for the job! I can’t wait to hear the reaction of my friends once they see the tablecloth I have ordered!
