Despite living in Cleveland for 6 years, I have just recently learned of the Euclid Dillard’s Outlet.
Having had the opportunity to visit on four separate occasions, I’m still undecided on if this is the city’s best kept secret or my new biggest curse….
Despite year’s of practice scouring clothing racks at discount bargain stores, I was NOT prepared for what awaited me inside….
Up for the challenge? Here’s what you should know:
Best of luck of bargainers… You’re going to have to work for it, but it can certainly be a fun challenge…
One would not expect to find authentic Indian cuisine located in the basement level of a Shaker Heights corporate office building, but nonetheless, so sits the Saffron Patch. So easily overlooked is the entrance, that even with GPS, you can expect to do lapse…. Do not give up….
Inside this oddly located gem is some of the best Chicken Tikka Masala and Naan that a gal can ask for…
And as long as my ”Our Town and All Around” Cleveland Dining Deals book continues to produce a “$14 off two entrees” coupon, Nick and I will continue to trek out to the East Side to devour it.
*Bonus for the secondary Saffron Patch 72-hour pre/post birthday coupon!
It’s that time of year again!!!
Time to purchase my all-new Our Town and All-Around Cleveland coupon book!! By far the single smartest $28 purchase any Clevelander can make….
Featuring amazing buy-one-get-one free entrees to hundreds of eateries throughout the city, a section offering discounts to over a dozen Northeast Ohio wineries, and a section designated to discount savings at the West Side Market, this book blows the Cleveland Entertainment Guide away…
I’m at four years and counting and I have yet to be let down….
The 2013 edition does not disappoint….
Tons of casual dining options including:
Some great upscale dining options:
Some of my returning favorites:
And in addition, this year’s book also boasts an entire section of savings dedicated to fine dining establishments in Little Itally….
Let the Eating (and savings) Begin!
*Available at Drug Mart
Up until 16 days ago, I had absolutely no business attending a children’s resale event such as the one being held this Saturday Oct. 6 at Westlake High School. Why the sudden Game Changer…. Sept. 18…
Sept 18, (1984)… A date once memorable due to the birth of my younger brother,
Sept 18, (2012)… A date now memorable due to the birth of my nephew…
Welcome baby Cullen Jamison… 6 lbs 7 Oz. of newborn handsomeness……
Though most first time aunties would have hit the retail stores right away, I knew that my Slovak Sister (first time mother to baby Cullen) would be returning the goods in exchange for savings bonds. (Not saying it’s a bad thing, just saying it’s a known thing.)
Rather than wasting time purchasing items that would later be returned, I did what any good Slovak would do and opted to hit up last weekend’s Bay Village baby resale where $10 snagged me two bags of name brand baby clothes including these amazing buys….
So how can I top the bargains I found last weekend…..Not sure that I can, but with 80 tables awaiting me chances are I’ll come out strong.
Just remember, get up early because the sale ends at noon. Those looking for the 8:00 a.m. early bird selection will have to pay $5 to enter but those willing to wait until 9:00 will only have to shell out $1. *And don’t forget to bring cloth totes to carry your goodies home!
Hope to see you there fellow bargainers!
Since 2010, I was on a massive search for an outdoor bistro set that wouldn’t break the bank. I refused to pay $150, which was the standard rate for these 3-piece table sets…
Oh..the hours I spent shopping, the muscles I sprained in my fingers from scouring Craigslist.. but finally…finally I scored a beauty for $80..
So you can imagine my horror when I visited my friend Jen and saw her DIY mosaic which she busted out for under $30… Utter disbelief and jealousy.
How….how is that possible I asked:
But how, how did you concoct this masterpiece I asked:
Placing whole tile pieces inside of an old pillow case, she slugged those babies with a hammer… *Note, use a cutting board or another hard slab of wood as a silencer… (The initial noise could have warranted the police.)
From there, navy blue spray paint was used on the wrought iron frame and accompanying four chairs…
Lastly, simple time and patience was needed to piece together and grout these little tiles pieces…
Thank you Jen for restoring my faith in decor recycling.. you epitomized the saying, “a little determination goes a long way!”
Oh Mail, why are you such a bore…….

Ebates Big Fat Rewards Check…… Why…. I nearly overlooked you when I tossed you in a pile two weeks ago and then hid you away in the corner.
So what is Ebates? Essentially, it’s an Online cash back shopping site. (On average, you receive about 3% cash back on most purchases.) Read more about it here. Over a 1,000 retailers participate with the site. Definitely worth signing up for before those black Friday and cyber Monday sales….
