The Best Time to Buy Everything!

The Best Time to Buy Everything
I hope this calendar will be helpful but please consider this as a general guide.  This is the result of watching prices on items for 5 years.  This is a guide to follow but you’ll want to keep your eye on the sales circulars {and of course this site} to help you find the best deal because there will always be exceptions.  Also, don’t forget the awesome power of negotiation too!

Other Savings Tips:

  • Airline tickets tend to be least expensive when bought on a Tuesday afternoon through Thursday. The worst prices will come when you shop Saturday and Sunday.
  • Jewelry sales are common, except around Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Christmas. So plan to buy early and always shop from a local jeweler, (from my experience) the selection will be better with more unique items, the prices will be lower and the salesman more knowledgeable and helpful.

Evgie.com: Vinyl Decals 15% Off with Coupon!

Once Upon a Time Decal

Once Upon a Time… decal would be perfect for any nursery or reading nook.  This decal set is only $32 and that includes all the decals you see on the wall!  The stars, the cat, the cloud, the key, and the moon, all of it!

 

Don't Forget to Kiss Me Goodnight Decal

Don’t Forget to Kiss Me Good Night decal is only $25 and it also includes all of the decals you see pictured.  Isn’t this precious?  I think it’s very sweet!

I am a big fan of sprucing up the boring walls in my home through the use of wall decals.  It’s a fun and creative way to make a change without making a commitment to that design.  Sure painting is also a fun way to spice things up a bit but it’s more permanent and there is a lot more room for error there.  With decals you can pick what you want it to look like before you begin (unlike painting), peel your sticker-like decal off and apply it.  You can be done with a massive project in no time.

Disclaimer: I’m working with Evgie.com to help make a custom design for my living room.  I’m very excited and I can’t wait to show you the end result!  In exchange for the decal I promised to give them advertising on our blog, EmbracingBeauty.com and to post pictures and my opinion of the finished project.

The people at Evgie were gracious enough to give us a 15% off code to use on ANYTHING on Evgie.com!  You could buy either of the two adorable decals I’ve added above or find your own decal that you’re in love with.  Just use the coupon code EM15 at checkout to save 15%.

Evgie.com sells easy to apply vinyl decal for your home or office that looks like a hand-painted design.  These decals are high quality decorative vinyl and they are as easy to remove as they are to apply.

You could purchase decals for yourself or even as a gift for someone else.  They make great bridal shower or wedding gift, baby shower gift, birthdays, new home purchases, graduations, Christmas, etc.  Each decal comes fully ready with the tools you need to finish the job and with step by step instructions on how to apply them.

I’m not sure how long this coupon code will last so if you’re interested in a decal I wouldn’t wait too long!
