Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving during one of the busiest shopping periods of the year. First celebrated on November 27, 2010, it is a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which feature big box retail and e-commerce stores respectively. By contrast, Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local.

In 2010 the holiday was conceived and promoted by American Express via a nationwide radio and television advertising campaign. That year Amex bought advertising inventory on Facebook, which it in turn gave to its small merchant account holders, and also gave rebates to new customers to promote the event.

American Express publicized the initiative using social media, advertising, and public relations. At least 41 local politicians and many small business groups in the United States issued proclamations concerning the campaign, which generated more than one million Facebook “like” registrations and nearly 30,000 tweets under the Twitter hashtags #smallbusinesssaturday (which had existed since early 2010) and #smallbizsaturday.

Cinda Baxter, founder of The 3/50 Project, was national spokesperson for Small Business Saturday its first year. The 3/50 Project encourages consumers to commit to spending $50 of their current monthly budgets with independently owned small businesses they care about.

The Twitter hashtag #SmallBusinessSaturday has existed since early 2010 and was used to promote small businesses on any Saturday (not solely that Saturday between Black Friday and Cyber Monday). The hashtag is used in a manner similar to #FollowFriday to highlight favorite local businesses.

September 1 – National Hummingbird Day

 

Today is National Hummingbird Day.


 
I love this holiday, it reminds me of my grandmother. She pasted a few years ago and she loved hummingbirds. Every time I see one now I think of her.
 
She and I use to sit on her front porch and watch the hummingbirds at the feeder she’d hung on the porch. She’d had the feeder up for so long sometimes it seemed as if the hummingbirds felt comfortable enough to hover right in front of her. They’d flap their strong little wings hovering right in front of her as if to say “Thank You”. She loved when they did that.
 
This day I will dedicate to my grandmother who I know is reading this and smiling.
 
Celebrate this day by going out and buying a hummingbird feeder and enjoy watching the life of a hummingbird. Who knows maybe you’ll start some special memories

How to Save Money at Target

 
 

****I FOUND THIS ON YAHOO.COM****

****THOUGHT YOU MIGHT APPRECIATE SOME MONEY SAVING HELP****


 

There’s a science to shopping at Target. Here’s how to get the best bargains. (Photo: Thinkstock & Yahoo.com)

Between back-to-school sales and everyday bargains, Target is an all-purpose shopping destination for plenty of people. But there’s a science to shopping at Target, and these tips and tricks can help you save even more money.
 
Just because something is on clearance at Target doesn’t necessarily mean that’s as low as the price will go. There’s a lot of information to be found on those little red clearance stickers that can help you determine if it’s the best deal you can get. In the bottom-left corner of the tag is the item’s original price. In the bottom-right corner is the current sale price. And in the top-right corner is the percentage off. Regular prices at Target always end in a “9,” savvy shoppers have noted, but clearance items can be priced at 15 percent, 30 percent, 70 percent, 75 percent, or even 90 percent off.

Food, furniture, and electronics generally don’t drop by more than 15 percent, some savvy shoppers point out, but holiday items may end up 90 percent off at the end of the season. The key is to check if the price ends in a “4.”

“If the price on the sticker ends in an ‘8,’ it will be marked down again,” says Kelly at FaithfulProvisions.com. “If it ends in a ‘4,’ that’s the lowest it will be. So if you see a price ending in a ‘4’ at 50 percent off, you might want to grab it now, because it’s not going to get any cheaper.”

Target has a team of employees who focus on marking down merchandise, and certain departments get marked down on certain days, several frugal bloggers have noted. According to TargetSavers.com, Clippergirl.com, and others, the general Target markdown schedule is:

Monday: Children’s clothing, baby items, electronics, and office supplies/gift wrap/stationary.
Tuesday: Women’s clothing, home decor and domestic items

Wednesday: Men’s clothing, toys, food, health and beauty, garden items
Thursday: Housewares, lingerie, shoes, sporting goods, luggage

Friday: Cosmetics, jewelry, hardware, automotive, and home improvement

Ask a Target associate what the markdown schedule is for your local store, since schedules — and prices — may vary by location. “In addition to knowing the day of the week, it’s important to know that they mark things down to the next level every two weeks,” writes Kelly at Faithful Provisions. “So, if you’re watching an item and see it was just marked down 50 percent, come back the same day in another two weeks and you should find it at 75 percent off.”

Be warned, though: If you hold out for that better discount, the item may be sold out when you come back. And if the item was purchased online but returned to a store, it might be the only one of its kind in the place — and it will be priced to sell.

“The best deals you will find at Target are returned online-only items,” wrote Reddit user “goldenglove2,” a former Target employee. “Most of the time they go straight to 90 percent off because there is no place for them on the planogram.”

Those deeply discounted items often end up on the end caps of rarely trafficked aisles, several Target fans have pointed out, and though they’re clearly labeled “Clearance,” the items aren’t necessarily in any kind of order.

“At our store we literally close our eyes and toss,” Target employee “santisanti” confessed on Reddit.

If you’re shopping for toys, it’s best to stock up in January, when stores make room for spring and summer stock, and in late July or early August, when the fall and winter toys come in. Holiday merchandise tends to get marked down quickly once the big day has passed; experts call it “the 3-3-2 rule.” The first three days after the holiday, items are 50 percent off. For the next three days, they’re 75 percent off. For two days after that, they’re 90 percent off and, after that, whatever is left goes to Goodwill.

If you don’t have the time to track clearance prices, you can still minimize your bill in other ways:

Sign up for a Target Red Card. You can save 5 percent every time you use it, and if you prefer to shop online at Target.com the Red Card will get you free shipping.

Watch for the Daily Deal. Keep track of Target’s Daily Deal offerings — up to five items at a bargain price plus free shipping.

Bring your own bags. Most Target stores will give you 5 cents off for every bag you use, according to Quizzle.

Clip (or print) coupons. Target offers plenty of store coupons on their website and through their mobile coupon program, and you can use them in conjunction with the manufacturer’s coupons you find online or clip from your local newspaper; maximize your savings by using them on trial-size items when you can. Also: The store sometimes prints high-value coupons at the bottom of your receipt, so check them before you toss them.

Keep your receipt. Target will match prices in a competitor’s printed ad as long as the product has the same brand name and model number and the ad is from within seven days of your purchase. They won’t match prices from Target.com or other online retailers, but if they put the same item on sale less than a week after you buy it, they’ll give you back the difference.

Sign up for the Birthday Club. If you sign your kids up for Target’s Birthday Club,” they’ll get a special birthday offer every year (About.com says that offer is a coupon for $5 off any $50 purchase.)

August 17 – National Thrift Store Day!

 

Today is National Thrift Store Day!


 
Recently, for some people thrift stores have become a staple or go to store to spruce up thier wardrobes and save some serious cash.

Savvy shoppers can capitalize on racks filled with brand names and designer duds for a fraction of their retail price.

The idea that thrift store shopping is only for those who can’t afford retail shopping is out of touch and out of style. The sad economic climate has significantly increased the customer base and profits of thrift stores around the country.

Consider the thrift store boom the perfect opportunity to lighten your load by purging any unwanted clothing, accessories, furniture or home decor — or fatten your wallet, if you decide to consign your goods.

August 17 – National Men’s Grooming Day

Since the inception of this holiday in 2007 participating salons and barbershops throughout the country have held special events in hopes to encourage men to buy and use grooming products, and proactively maintain their appearance. Just because Men’s Grooming Day lands in late August it doesn’t mean this holiday should be celebrated sans gifts. So, if you’re a man who is proactive about his appearance (or a woman who is proactive about her man’s appearance!), let Vanityfair be your guide.
