Retail Me Not — My newest online friend

outdoor motion sensor pendant lightSo 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.

    Retail me not is the bain of my existence. They give new meaning to the negative sides of viral marketing.

    Great, but my favorite is http://couponyeah.com ;-)
    They have latest coupon codes, promo codes from about 5000 online stores. Their web design is a bit simple, but they got the job done. I’ve been saving a lot of money ever since I found this site. 
    Check it out for yourself and don’t forget to thank me. :-)
