Everyone is trying to save a buck these days, and Brandless is a new store that's helping us do it. Everything at Brandless is $3, giving you the savings of a brand-free product that's not quite the savings of, say, Aldi, but may be cheaper than many store brands.
Most of us love to try new games, but they can cost so much money! Gaming cafes make it easier to try games out, but you can't always get everyone you want to play at the cafe. Plus, there's the cost of entry. Did you know that there are lots of print and play games that you can try at home before buying games? One of the most popular games of our time, Cards Against Humanity, is even available for free download!
Easter is less than a month away (and on April Fool's Day, no less, which gives you lots of chances to make it intersting this year!) and sales are already starting to run for the holiday. Between chocolate bunnies, plastic eggs and baskets, what do you need, and where will you get it?

My aunt has always called it "TAR JAY," but to most people, Target is the place to get toilet paper and leave with $152 worth of stuff you never knew you needed... sigh. But the shoppers in the know are faring much better off since they know the secrets to shopping at the store.
Are you already enjoying all of Valentine's sales going on everywhere? It's the day of, so some of them won't be going on until tomorrow or the day after. That's okay; save a few dollars and wait for tomorrow. It will be worth it! Every year I shop at Target the day after Valentine's Day. I limit myself to $4 or $5 and still get a bunch of stuff!
Are you more likely to support a company if it's independently owned? How about if part of its proceeds help to fund a cause you support? Both are true for me and when I ran across a video about a young woman who has sold hundreds of homemade bath bombs, with 30% of her proceeds benefiting diabetes research, I had to take a look!
Buzzfeed comes up with some pretty cute lists and this list of 32 things Things That'll Make You Say, "Why Don't I Own That Already?" has some adorable ideas for Valentine's Day. Yes, I know that they use affiliate links sometimes but who cares. If they have cool stuff with a good deal, we should check it out.
The last thing I bought on Amazon was a cat scratching post! I had a gift card from someone and my cats are tearing up my beautiful new pleather furniture from my parents (they moved and it was too big!) so hopefully it works as a solution. Meanwhile, Amazon has several great Gold Box deals today if you want to check them out!
If you're looking for a cozy and filling meal this winder, Noodles and Company might be the place to go. They are having a Winter Pasta Party every Wednesday from now until spring and given that this blogger's kicking carbs right now, it's a hard temptation to pass up! Not only is it a flavorful, fun experience with weekly themes and several pastas to choose from, but it's also a great deal at $10 per person for endless pasta.
