This Week's Shopping News

California Bans Usage of Plastic Grocery Shopping Bags

California's legislature passed a ban on plastic grocery bags over opposition from bag manufacturers.Reuters

A bill banning plastic bags in California grocery stores, pharmacies, liquor stores and other businesses is headed to Gov. Jerry Brown's desk after the state legislature passed the measure Friday.
If signed by Mr. Brown, the bill would institute the first statewide ban on plastic bags in the U.S. A spokesman for the governor said Friday he hasn't taken a position on the issue.
Cities including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Portland already have such bans in place, as do most counties in Hawaii. The California ban would prohibit the thin, commonly distributed plastic bags in grocery stores and pharmacies beginning July 1, 2015, and go into effect for convenience and liquor stores on that date a year later. Proponents of the ban say the plastic bags are rarely recycled and commonly littered. The plastic often ends up in the ocean, they say, harming sea life.

How Target Aims To Turn Instragram into Shopping Spree

Target, one of the largest world retailers, has taken on yet another social media venture: Instagram. We all are familiar with social media. We use it for various things, including shopping. Here's an except on Target's new venture:

Source: IBD (Investor's Business Daily)

As Googling an elusive button-down shirt becomes too much work for some shoppers — let alone making the trek to a brick-and-mortar mall — retailers are looking to convert "likes" and "favorites" into actual buys.
Target (NYSE:TGT) on Wednesday adopted Curalate's software Like2Buy for its Target and Target Style Instagram feeds, in the hopes that users will turn a casual scroll into a shopping spree.
Target has 319,000 Instagram followers and Target Style has 375,000, which means nearly 700,000 potential online customers.

Big News: Labor Day Sales May Be Bigger Than  Black Friday, This Year
Action News reports that this year, retailers are dishing out the big deals, a bit earlier. Usually, they start around the Thanksgiving/Black Friday Weekend. It appears, retailers are trying to get a head start in preparing for the Holiday Season. And shoppers are really loving it. Watch here:

I, personally, think this is a great move, because, Black Fridays just have gotten a bit too crazy, for both shoppers and retailers. I'm hoping this will create less chaos, when Black Friday comes around. What do you think? Will this move help deter some of the Black Friday drama that has become the norm? Weigh in! I'd love to hear from you. Post your comments below!

4 Big Money Saving Ideas

Each day it seems like prices, taxes and inflation are going up, while paycheck earnings, raises and bonuses are going down. It seems like it's harder to even stretch your earnings, paycheck to paycheck.

Here are 4 Big Money Saving Ideas I have found that I hope you can use:
Source: About Money on (Excerpts credited to writers, (C) All Rights Reserved)

  1. Groceries-According to a 2013 USA Today article, the average American family of four spends between $149- $289 a week on healthy groceries.   Assuming that there are four weeks in a month, families are likely spending anywhere from $600 to almost $1200 a month.  This includes just grocery shopping, not family pizza nights out or drive-thru meals that may be spontaneously purchased. 
  2. Utilities-According to Pure Energies USA, the average American household spends $163 a month on basic gas and electric utilities, and the number continues to rise. 
  3. Clothes Shopping-Clothing shopping can put a big dent in the wallet, particularly when you are buying for four people.  The good news is that these days there are sales consistently all year long.  The best time to catch a sale is during a holiday weekend or directly following a holiday weekend. 
  4. Holiday Giving-The holidays are a very special time of year, especially for young children.  However, spending during the holiday times has spiraled out of control.  Set some boundaries with your families and friends.  Yes, if you have young children, you will want to buy them presents.  But does your cousin that lives across the country really need a new picture frame?  Or does your great aunt really need a new covered baking dish?  If you decide with your family and friends in advance of the holiday season how you want to handle the gift exchange, there is a good chance that other adults will just want to stick with giving the children gifts as well.

I've added some statistics and intros on these 4 Big Money Saving Ideas. Visit the Money article-4 Big Money Saving Ideas, to find out how you can save on these shopping categories.

This Week's Latest Shopping News and Tips-5/25/2014-Military Mom gets Wonderful Surprise While Shopping, Netflix to Increase Prices for New Customers, Car Buying Tips and More

Hey everyone,
How's it been going? Boy, I'd like to tell you; the talk of the town, of the nation, has been the weather; for most of the past few weeks. And rightfully so. It's been a bit crazy out there, lately.
It's been a lot like this



It's officially Spring and, it's already hit Summer temps. Here in Newport News,VA, it hit upper 90s, and feels like 100 degrees. In some parts of the country, though, Winter wants to stick around. In the Midwest, it's actually snowing. Yeah, I know. Say What? Well, let's see what's going on in the world of shopping; take our minds off the Weather for a little bit.

Starting off,

A California mother got the surprise of a lifetime when her soldier son returned home from Afghanistan.

 Watch the video on the Fox News' linked page above. This was such a heartwarming moment.

Useful Tips For Buying A Car | Car Shopping

Bee swarm on car in Bournemouth

Wow! I could only imagine how these shoppers must have been feeling. I love animals and some insects. Bees are such busy and productive creatures. But, this swarm could be kind of scary .

Guess they were after the pollen on the car. Another reason why we need to wipe the pollen off as soon as possible. Hmm! The lesser of the greater evils-wash the pollen off your car everyday, or face a swarm of bees. Decisions! Decisions!

Having a Snow Day- Great Time For Coupon and Deal Searching-New Deals Enclosed

Hey there, Sarah's Super Center Deals And Coupons Fans,

It's another snow day today. (Here's some of pics of what a snow day looks like, in Newport News, VA)

These next first 4 pics are from the early morning, around 6am

And here is what it looks like around 2pm. (The snow has stopped, and walkways have been cleared, but not too much melting taking place :). (Maybe my family and I can build a snowman later, if it's dry enough). Will have to weigh in with our local news, on Wavy 10 :)

Now, Usually, I'm out and about, running errands. But, today, I've had to make a major shift change. All of a sudden, my calendar was changed. I'm finding myself indoors, with no idea what to do. 
Then, I got an idea. What a great time to find some coupons and deals.

And here's what I've found: To catch these deals, just click on the links. If you see a coupon code, jot it down to use during checkout



These deals are just in time. This Winter Weather has really taken most of us on a ride; including our cars. While I'm posting automotive deals, I want to share a neat tip that I picked up from our local Wavy 10 News 

Wavy 10's Great Tip for Stuck Vehicles:  Lots of vehicles are getting stuck in the snow. Here's a way you can get out: (This is for those who get stuck in a pile of snow, not a ditch)

Step 1: First, make sure your car is in the Park position, and remove any snow around the stuck tire
Step 2: Take your car mat: rubbery side, and place it directly in front of the stuck tire
Step 3: Either you or someone else who can drive the vehicle; put car in drive, then press slightly on the accelerator. (Your vehicle should roll out of the stuck position).

Cool huh?

Well, I hope you never have to use this tip; but, just in case, in most cases; it does work. And now, onto the deals
