From Last Week – Because I Procrastinate Like A BOSS

From last week’s show!  Only a week late!  Yeah…   The Cheap Chick’s Mail Bag, 4th Quarter 2013 Every week, I get dozens of Facebook messages, emails and Tweets about discounts and deals I just HAVE to check out.  In fact, I’ve received so many fabulous frugal ideas in the last few weeks, I have […] [ Read More… ]

Our Park System Kicks…

…it into high gear!  Yeah.  I’m trying to swear less as I get older.  Moving on.   In Minnesota, most people would not think of heading to one of our many amazing parks for Valentine’s Day.  February 14th is the dead of winter in our state, not what you would consider romantic.  But that’s where […] [ Read More… ]

    The Cheap Chick's Daily Deal

    Where I Thrift

    Everyone has their favorite thrift stores, right?  Okay, you do if you love thrifting as much as I do!  Here are the stores where I enjoy popping tags:

    Saver’s in Bloomington – close proximity to Prestigious West Bloomington and Edina equals excellent, higher end thrift scores.  Remember, if you donate?  You receive a 20% off coupon you can use right away!

    Saver’s in Columbia Heights – it’s the nearest thrift store to my house, and they have the NICEST staff of any Saver’s in the TC, in my humble opinion.

    ARC Value Village – For me, ARC is hit or miss.  I either score BIG, or leave empty-handed.  Either way, I always enjoy perusing this tidy, friendly shop.
