Lamp Exchange

Did you know that Southern California Edison sponsors a lamp exchange?  In an effort to promote conservation, SCE allows residential customers to exchange halogen and incandescent lamps for Energy Star lamps.  The next exchange is Saturday, April 12 from 8 am – 3 pm at Home Depot in Santa Ana. You can bring a maximum of 10 lamps and exchange them for one of these. For more information, visit their website.

Hudson Sample Sale

Hudson Jeans Sample Sale

Since I’ve become a stay at home mom, my one wardrobe staple are my jeans.  I always balked at the idea of paying hundreds of dollars for those “premium” brands, but boy, once I tried them, I was hooked!  Still, I’m not shelling out all that money for jeans.  Well, here’s the best of both worlds–buy premium jeans at their sample sale!  I love me some Hudson jeans.  They are super comfortable with a great fit but they usually retail for $200!  At the last sale I went to, the seconds were $40 and regular production was $60.  By seconds, it means there are slight imperfections and/or irregularities.  I picked up 3 pairs of seconds for the price of one at full price and I love them.  I never noticed the difference.  You do have to know your size and fit though because you cannot try anything on so stop by Nordstrom and try on a couple of pairs before you go.


Cerritos Spring Festival

The City of Cerritos is holding its annual Spring Festival in a few weeks.  If you’re like me, you remember the date, and don’t bother to read all the other gobbledy gook.  So I finally read the gobbledy gook and do you know what I found out?!  You can buy discounted wristbands at City Hall before April 24 for $24. Woohoo! Now I have extra money for 1/2 a funnel cake.
