So if you’re like me (and you probably are since you’re reading this blog), you make a lot of purchases online. It’s not that I dislike buying things from stores, but the reality is that I have VERY particular tastes and specifications. Well, in preparation for moving to my new home there are lots of things that I need get to get. Some things are normal like new locks & paint…and then there are seemingly normal (yet distressingly hard to find) items like an outdoor motion sensor light that doesn’t look like something attached to a prison…or one that’s a wall sconce. I need a light that is a ceiling mount fixture, but it turns out that attractive motion sensor lights are not that easy to find. (I’m surprised!) So after a futile trip to Lowe’s and about an hour of google searching, I finally found ONE. The only one available it seems. (On the bright side, it’s relatively stylish and wasn’t tooo expensive.) But the best part was that I was able to use my new favorite website www.retailmenot.com to get $10 off. This is about the 5th time I’ve used this site to find free shipping codes, $$ off coupons, etc. And I’m extremely happy with the results. I’ve not paid shipping each time!! Super cool…and I also saved some dough on my new lighting purchase.
