*Sale Alert! Sale Alert! Sale Alert! *


Sears has all of the "Lands End" winter apparel marked down then there is an additional %50 that price.  I bought a coat that was $59 regularly for $19.99!!  Adult and children clothing all included.  WOW.

Bigger still------  The Children's Place has marked down tons of their winter wear.  Items for 4T and below are $2.99 larger sizes were $3.99.  Got size 3T pjs for $2.99 (girl's and boy's)!  Hoodies, fleece lined jeans, thermal shirts, all very cute!  They had an entire wall stocked today at 4pm, but I would get there as quickly as you can.  (I managed to leave a few things there, LOL).

Crazy sales.

Ok.... parents keep this one on file!

Here is a tip you will want to keep handy.  If you have little ones and they find the "Sharpie" permanent marker that you were sure you had put out of their reach, get yourself a can of "Aqua Net" hairspray right away!  You remember this stuff, you or your mother used in the '70s to hold any hair-do in any windstorm.  If marker is used on your painted walls, spray well with aqua net hairspray and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes and wipe clean.  If in a visible area, you may want to test on a less noticeable place first to ensure the paint won't lighten.  Most current paint brands sold now will do fine.

Not just for hair anymore!

Raleigh, NC         If you are hungry and are lucky enough to be in downtown Raleigh, NC, you should make your way to "The Diner" located at 410 Glenwood Ave.  They have great food, a fun atmosphere and good service.  I had their griddled biscuits with sausage gravy and all I can say is "YUM!"  I'll put the link on my site so you can check out the menu for yourself.  Enjoy : )

Now this is Really Good Stuff!

Many thanks to Donnie D. for this tip.  Woolite Oxy Power Shot is the best spot cleaner we have ever tried.  We have found it at Food Lion, Home Depot and Lowes.  We have tried numerous spot/carpet cleaners and none have worked like this one does.  We purchased one can to try and have already gone back to the store to buy two more!  We also encourage buyers to invest in the "stick kit" as it really saves your back.  the Oxy Power Shot has gotten out some of the worst stains our 4 year old has dished out!  If you have children or pets, this is a must have.   REALLY GOOD STUFF!

Blindly following policy is not always best for business or customers!

Not Good......
A recent trip to "Baby's-R-Us" left me frustrated and baffled.  I went to the location in Raleigh, NC to return an inexpensive item, but had no receipt.  I knew that I could not get a refund, however I needed to purchase a gift that was quite a bit more than the item being returned.  It should be noted that the item was also the exclusive brand of "Baby's-R-Us" and thus is not sold anywhere else.  The return would have been at the most $14.00 and the gift item being purchased was $129.00.  They firmly stood behind the policy of no returns without a receipt.  I was even allowed to speak with their corporate headquarters to no avail.  Let me say that everyone involved was very nice, but they were absolutely ineffective and I think as frustrated as I.  So I kept the item they would not take back and went to TARGET and purchased my gift.  Next time..... wait there will not be a next time.  "Baby's-R-Us" YOU'RE FIRED!

Who loves TARGET?   ME!

   Ok..... the name might make you giggle, but this is GOOD STUFF!  If you have an infant or are expecting, get  Boudreaux's  Butt Paste immediately.  It is one thing I make sure I always have just in case.  Also, if you have an area of very dry skin it helps adults too!  Here is an offer to get a free sample.  (of course, only use as directed and all that disclaimer lawyer stuff!)
