Mother's Day (May 12th) is fast approaching. How do you like to surprise your mom buying her wishlist so she can be happier than ever?

A great way to save money on furniture, lighting, cookware or any household products, is to look for a coupon code or discount coupon at first before doing shopping. Another way to save on those items is to buy it used except for the lighting but of course buying new ones. A lot of people are uncomfortable with an idea of buying used furniture, but buying used gives you the chance to save money and buy a much better piece of furniture. However, if you don’t like the idea of buying second hand furniture like dining table, chairs, bed, dresser, sofas, bookshelves, TV stands and more, but you feel that your budget is hurting, then looking for its coupon codes, is a smart idea. Yes, buying brand new ones are always the best, meaning, one has to find a discount coupon code to can enjoy the saving instantly. Isn't it awesome that you get discount by having such?

You will see a variety of furniture stores, which offer great discounts by providing coupon codes that are ready for grabs. I was at the site earlier, and while I was navigating the site, I found a beautiful closet for my daughter. I like the style plus the paint really match to the other furniture in my daughter’s room. I wish the coupon code is still available by the time I have extra money to shop for this baby closet. I really love it. You may like to check it out for yourself too. You know, it's always great to give moms the stuff(s) they like/want to have. This is a great time for that. Have a great day. All the best!

 I am fortunate enough that a company of 10DollarMall.com by chance gave me gift card in exchange for a review here in my blog. As always, I give my honest review of how I find it. FYI, I am a picky shopper when it comes to clothes, shoes and accessories. I am a savvy person but likes to have quality ones. I can even find myself hours of checking just to get what I really like to get. Ooh well, I am a woman! :)

Okay. First, all the goods they are selling (clothing, shoes and accessories for all members of the family) is just $9.99 and below. Nothing more. Compared to the big malls stuffs like these, it's like " really? " thing. As in, you will be surprised of how cheap the goodies are. Looking at its quality, it's no difference. It's just the price that differs about 5 bucks or so. If you don't care about small store (or they call it mall, so it's little mall) and you live in Chula Vista, San Diego, California, then you are good to go for an incomparable cheap price. Much more if you know how to take a look of the goodies, you have a choice of shopping online just like what I did.

As you can see on my left side, I have been wearing a Red Dress with Rhinestones and Shawl on it. This is the biggest find I got. It's so beautiful, it's original price is about 50 bucks. Oh, ha! Savvy me, eh? :) Again, it's a great find. I got it at its Wholesale Clothing(particularly in here: http://www.10dollarmall.com/p/red-dress-with-rhinestones-and-shall). Ooh yeah, what a great dress for Valentines Day or any day occasion or a cocktail party, isn't it? Also I got the Navy Sweat Suit on the third pic above, it's just a little long for me which is so usual for just a 5'2 height me. Ooh well. Smile. :) Its Black Cutout Scarf With Shredded Button is great. I love it as the hat and the scarf are together. Great for a cool weather these days along with the sweat suit. I got my baby girl a Beige and Pink 3pcs Track Suit and its cool as shown in the right corner (though, it's really of a cheap-y clothing but since it allows to warm her up then that's all matters and besides our place won't experience snow ever, so it's just fine. It's still great because of that fact. :)

My DH spoiled me of not to get something for himself instead she let me get for me in behalf of him. And so I got two hats: one is Ivory Floppy Bucket Summer Hat with Bow (obviously it is for summer, I just got it in preparation for Summer or Spring {since I live in an area where snow won't fall, so even if it's just Spring, it's more of Summer time} and I love the Ivory Summer Hat! The other one is a Black Fuzzy Soft Beanie which came out to be my new favorite hat during windy or cold days, yes I love it! The last but not the least, I got the Coral Straps Wedge Pumps to pair to pair with the red dress. Not that I thought it should be, it is dry in color and about orange not red, its heel also is not rubber but plastic makes it hard for me to use it. I tried to return but it's a hassle because I have to shoulder a return shipping fee, I just then decided to just stash it and if there's a chance that I can change its heel from plastic to rubber, then I'll do it. I think the color  and the long height will just be fine. All in all, I'm a happy camper! The shipping fee is reasonable. They also have a secure shopping checkout just like any other online store and they accept PayPal.

So, why don't you try and check it out for yourself? Happy shopping! :)

On my first year in college, I never bought textbooks to all my subjects because I need to save a little money for my daily allowance. I just borrowed textbooks from the school library. However, students were not allowed to borrow books for the whole semester. They only allow bringing home the textbook for a week and not for the whole semester. In addition, students can just borrow two to three textbooks per week. If you are a smart student, buying a new textbook is not worth doing because you cannot use it after the school term. The practical thing you could do is to rent textbooks.

Do you know that you can rent textbooks? When you rent textbooks, you can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices. Some others, shipping is free in both ways. Some company gave flexible renting periods, and you can highlight the important texts in the textbooks. Just make sure that the next borrower wouldn't find it annoying. One thing is good in some great company; they partnered to an organization that the main objective is to give a beautiful smile to children who have cleft lip problems. They perform cleft lip surgeries for children whose families couldn't afford to pay the operation. So, on every textbook you rented, such great company donates some amount to Operation Smile. I always love people smiling.
