Baja Fresh: Free Burrito (if you can find a participating location) – Wednesday 3/17

Baja Fresh has announced an AWESOME deal with very blurry fine print that excludes over 45 locations, most of them in southern California. Plus, the coupon requires customers to print from their Facebook page to prove that the customer is a fan and you also have to wear green.

So to review, to receive the free burrito, you must:

  1. Become a fan of Baja Fresh on Facebook.
  2. Print full offer on the Baja Fresh Facebook page (make sure your click “Account” so your name shows up on the page when you print it).
  3. Wear Green (in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day)
  4. Find a participating location. I suggest you call ahead of time if you’re in southern California.
  5. Purchase a large beverage
  6. Enjoy your burrito, if they have any left.

They seem to be very picky, leaving lots of room for customers to miss a hurdle or two. But a free burrito, is a free burrito! Let us know on Wednesday if you succeed!

Do’s and Dont’s of Posting a Garage Sale Ad

Do’s and Dont’s of Posting a Garage Sale Ad

You may have noticed the “Garage Sale Finder” on the sidebar which maps out some of the Garage Sales we find listed on PennySaverUSA.com. While it is not a comprehensive mapper, you can still get a good idea of what’s going on in your neighborhood.

However, some garage salers don’t make it easy to gather information. There are lots of ads that do not clearly list a date or a general scope of the type of items they are selling. So if you want to hold a successful garage sale, here are some tips to help bring more people to your garage sale.

It starts with the listing…

  • Do set a clear date and time. “This weekend” may confuse shoppers who look late in the week and they might show up the following weekend. Be clear with your dates and times, especially when posting a week or two in advance.
  • Do include your address or cross streets. People will look past your ad if they don’t know which neighborhood you’re in.
  • Don’t post complex directions that only you understand. E.g. Head west on Main St. Left three blocks down, another Right at the McDonalds… Although it may be clear to you, it might actually confuse someone else. If you’ve indicated an address or cross streets, posting good signs will help guide their way.
  • Do list prices for bulk deals. E.g. 3 for $5 books, $2 bags of small toys, etc.

How-To Pamper Yourself for Cheap

How-To Pamper Yourself for Cheap

Looking good doesn’t have to cost a fortune. It just takes a little bit more time to find those special discounts. If you’re not the type to spend $100 on a hair cut and blowdry, here are some ways to spend less and still look great!

  • Find a beauty school. Beauty schools offer discounts to those who volunteer to be models for students undergoing training to become a hairstylist or esthetician.  They offer beauty services for half the price of salons and students are under close supervision by professionals. An appointment may last longer than your typical salon appointment so plan accordingly.
  • What do bananas, cucumbers, eggs, olive oil, and honey have in common? They’re all easily in your fridge or pantry, and you can whip up your own beauty products. Mix some bananas, egg white, and yogurt to create a face mask. Or dab a little lemon juice to remove sun spots. Use some strawberries and coarse salt to naturally ex-foliate your skin while making it smell delicious.

How To: Have a Cheap (but fun!) Date

How To: Have a Cheap (but fun!) Date

Being a cheap date doesn’t have to synonymous with being a bad date. There is plenty to do on the cheap and maybe you can even impress your guy or gal with some creative ways to have fun without spending a lot of dough.

  • Spend an afternoon at a Garage Sale or Estate Sale – You can really get to know someone by going through someone else’s stuff.  You can challenge your date to find something special under $5 to exchange as gifts. Not only would your gifts be unique, but they will also represent a special moment for you and your date.
  • Buy Groceries and Make Lunch/Dinner – Cooking at home is always cheaper than eating out and you get to show off your kitchen talents. Even if you’re not so impressive in the kitchen, there are easy recipes available online and you can find something to make based on what ingredients you have in the kitchen at SuperCook.com.
  • Learn to Dance! – A night out at a club usually means an exuberant cover charge, and you also have to deal with crowds, expensive drinks, and some embarrassment if you’re not doing so hot on the dance floor. Why not learn some new moves so you can really rock the dance floor together?
