Shopping for Myself

I feel like I deserve to reward myself since I have been working so hard hauling some deals at different stores nearby. For weeks, all I have done was doing store hopping trying to stock up most of the stuff we need in the house. I feel exhausted and want to quit now since we got enough.

It is time to buy something for myself. It’s been quite a while now since I have not rewarded myself. These two below I purchased at Zulily are sure would make me feel beautiful, haha. The black and white maxi dress is only under $8 and the second photo which is you know look revealing maybe just under $6. Sweet deals, aren’t they? Not to mention they are free shipping. Zulily’s offer is I get free shipping on the second order if it is placed before midnight of the same day. So there I went, checked out and purchased these two aside from the other two items which are household items. Estimated shipping date will be on the 18th next month, way too long to wait but what else can I do?

purple sheer lace floral chemise – I chose this because summer is almost here and this I think would be comfortable during the warm nights for three months.

Sharper Uniforms for a Variety of Occupations

No matter what type of organization an owner is running, he may want his staff members to wear great-looking uniforms. Uniforms make it easy for customers to identify staff workers and also provide a consistent, professional appearance for people who work at the organization. A company such as Averill’s Sharper Uniforms provides outfits suitable for a broad range of occupational positions. Wait staff, hotel front desk personnel, store clerks, resort and country club workers, bartenders, security staff, delivery truck drivers and fitness center workers are examples of occupations that need uniforms.

Polo shirts, long-sleeved shirts and blouses, camp shirts, sweaters, vests and aprons are some products available from a uniforms provider. The company also can provide hats, scarves and neckties. The items can be manufactured in the organization’s color preferences and can feature logos and other graphics.

Some organizations want their employees to wear bright colors that make them stand out in a crowd so customers can easily find them. Another common choice is for the uniforms to be understated and matching in both colors and style. Bartenders and wait staff might all wear a tan polo shirt and black casual pants, for example. Retail stores and other operations typically like their employees to wear uniforms in colors that match the corporate colors.

Food Combo that Brings Back Good Memories

Throughout the years of making ” flavored rice porridge”, I can proudly say that I perfected its taste. Even though I am now in America yet my stomach craves for the comfort food we used to eat a lot when we were little. Rice porridge is my girls’ favorite now. It is easy to make and very filling to the hungry stomach especially if it is paired with hard boiled eggs and egg rolls.

This food combo brings back a lot of good memories I had with my siblings and my mother. Mama used to bring us to church every Sunday and took us to Loloy’s Lugawan in Lapu Lapu public market and to have some of the porridge and other stuff. For me, it was one the fondest memories I had with my family.

Loloy’s lugawan is still pretty much in the business. In fact, my Philippine vacation would not be complete without eating lugaw at his place. I even brought my first born to his place twice already and would continue coming back whenever I am given the chance to fly to the Philippines for a vacation.

Preschool and Kindergarten learning kids games for girls & boys

I recently downloaded an app that is great for my fast growing toddler. It is from Kids Academy and it is best suited for Preschool and Kindergarten learning kids games for girls & boys. The app is so easy to download with no hassles. My kids love it. This is the first app that I downloaded in my ipod that I plan of keeping forever because it is educational and lots of interesting games for my girls especially my almost 3-year old girl.

Great Finds at Walmart

When I go to Walmart, I make sure I stopped by their little “clearance” aisle and see what I can find there. There wasn’t much that got me interested yesterday except for these 50 cents 2-pack store brand toothbrushes. Since they are store brand, I don’t need to use manufacturer coupons on them.

We still have plenty of new toothbrushes stocked at home but I am also saving up for stuff for my box to be sent to my family next year. Another great find are the red Bic pens which are perfect for teachers for they do use red pens a lot.

I know who to give them to and surely she will be happy to receive them.

I love it when I find stuff on clearance that I don’t expect to see. When they are available I grab them so I don’t regret not buying them and feeling remorseful when I arrive home.

How about you guys? What sort of daily needs you are stocking up for in case prices go up, you got plenty? Do you do couponing too like me?

VIP Shopping – The Benefits of Shopping Online

Just like telecommuting, online shopping is also gaining popularity among people from different parts of the world. Some people who do not know much about this shopping method are usually apprehensive. They do not feel comfortable especially when it comes to giving their financial details. However, a lot of online shoppers have great experiences that they continue to shop online.

Savings Unlimited

Contrary to the popular belief, people can actually save a lot of money when they shop online. There are actually a lot of online stores that offer huge savings especially with coupons. Shopping in coupon sites enables people to use codes and coupons for more savings. Such sites usually offer discounts and even freebies in exchange of coupon site points. When compared, people get more savings when they shop on these stores rather than actual establishments. In these days you can easily find coupon codes from online sites by using any popular search engine. Most online stores owners and administrators offer lower prices so they can attract more shoppers. Also, most online stores do not apply taxes to purchases.

Style and Speed

There are a lot of different products available in online stores. There are a lot of stores, brands, and items to choose from. This gives shoppers more than enough options. Likewise, shoppers can browse significantly bigger amounts of products for sale in online stores compared to how much they can view when shopping in an actual store when given the same length of time. This allows shoppers to purchase the best product for them quickly. This is also perfect for shoppers who have to buy different things that do not usually coexist in a store. Instead of going to from one store to another, shoppers can just get everything that they need easily through an online store.

Convenience at its Finest

One of the major benefits of online shopping is the shopper’s convenience. Shoppers do not have to travel to and from the stores. They do not have to endure traffic jams. They do not have to wait in line to pay for their purchase. They can get what they want at the comfort of their own houses. They can even shop while lying on their beds. They do not have to dress up to go out and shop. They can shop even in their PJ’s. They can easily pay for their purchases over secured payment systems in online stores.

Shop Anytime

Online stores do not have specific operating hours. Therefore, people can shop any time they want! They do not have to wait for the stores or boutiques to open. They can shop any time of the day, any day of the week, and even on holidays! As a result, people do not have to clear their schedule just to shop. They can shop anytime they have time.

Private Parts

Online stores value shoppers’ privacy. In terms of payment method security, shoppers’ payment details are secured. In case of purchases involving sensitive products, shoppers prefer to buy online instead of actually going to the store and getting the items themselves.

CVS Freebies This Week 4/13-19

Dang! It’s been four days since I skip couponing for the reason my car is in the auto shop. I don’t have a choice but to wait until the problem with it gets fixed. Hopefully, we can receive that anticipated call from the shop before this day ends.

Here are just a few freebies that I so want to snag at CVS this week. Coupons are clipped, I have listed down the items I want to buy for an easy shopping but heck, I have no car!

#1 Colgate toothpaste, I know I have shopped a lot of toothpastes already but who can say no to freebie? With store sale and manufacturer coupon combined, it’s just so hard to pass up this deal.

#2 Almay cosmetics, as you can see in the second photo, I have two store coupons that are high value and 2 manufacturer coupons which makes the deal MONEY MAKER for me. I am sure not all CVS shoppers receive the same store coupons as me, they have to get the item/s free but they don’t make money from buying it. I DO!

#3 Ban total fresh cooling body cloths, this is a trial promo from the company, they collaborated with the store just to get their new products out there. FREE is always good, you know?

3 Benefits of Promoting Your Business With A Light Box

If you’ve ever walked past a movie theater, you’re familiar with the sight of a light box. Unlike posters or print-outs, light boxes use LED graphics for crisp, bright advertising that can be modified at will with the click of a button.
Intrigued? Here are just a few of the benefits you’ll enjoy if you switch to light boxes for business marketing.

1: Ease of Use

Since their visuals are made with computer graphics, you never have to worry about your ad, say, peeling off a billboard or fading with time. It will stay flawless and high-resolution on your light box for as long as you care to keep it up. If you ever change your mind about the design or want to replace it with something new, just upload a fresh image. It’s as simple as that.

2: Intense Illumination

Light boxes are powered by LED or fluorescent lights that can last up to 50,000 hours. This means they’ll be seen day and night, bright and unaided, attracting customers from every angle. You can’t ask for better exposure, especially if you order from a company like Dynamic Signs and Displays, who offer backlighting as well as optional front-load lights.

3: Cost Effectiveness

While light boxes can be pricey upfront, they pay for themselves quickly. Where else can you find an advertising tool that doesn’t wear down, doesn’t need re-painting and can be completely changed at the drop of a hat? If you’re serious about stepping up your marketing game, consider a light box for maximum money-saving.

Salted Goodies from the Philippines

Look what I received in the mail last week? These are dried salted fish straight from the wet market in my home town, Lapu-Lapu City, Philippines. Thanks to a friend who thought of sending them to me. It is very much appreciated. I was only wanting the “amahong” but she sent other kind of dried fish along.

I could smell the scent of the market when I opened the package. For my husband who don’t like these stuff, it smells stinky to him but not for the three girls in this house. I am so loving eating dried fish! Guess, I can make these last for months if I have to and would only eat little pieces every time I cook some to make it last long.

Allied Shirt’s made in the USA Shirt

I thank Allied Shirts for the opportunity of me reviewing one of their products. I recently received this cool custom shirt in the mail from them. It is a mauve color with my blog name printed on it above the graphic that I personally chose from their website. I love the outcome of the printing for it is of high quality. The shirt itself is made in the USA which is very unusual for most of the clothing that can be bought in the US nowadays are made in China but Allied Shirt patronizes American made shirts.

I ordered a small size but guess, it is a little loose on me. I wished that they had an XS size for a proper fitting. Anyway, I am proud to have this shirt now to wear running errands outside at the same time advertising my blog to the public.

If you want to find a great deal on custom shirt printing, I would recommend Allied Shirts. You can choose as low as $2.95/shirt for basic tees. You can also browse their templates to be printed on your shirt. Templates under school, events and parties, college, military, religious, business and many others categories. Low price guarantee! Also, get 30% off promo and free shipping from them.

Photo below is the actual design I made online.

And here’s the photo of me wearing the shirt. It’s a little too big for me but I am happy with it.

Disclaimer: I did not receive any monetary compensation from the company, instead they sent me free customized shirt and free shipping in exchange of my honest review/opinion about the product.
