The majority of us are doing what we can to cut back when necessary. But, ladies and gentlemen, we *do* need to bite the bullet and jump for those bigger-ticket items from time to time, if not for our own sanity/pampering, but also for the greater good. And what better way to celebrate our great nation’s birthday than to pump up her economy?
We all know the economy is just kind of pitiful right now. The majority of us are doing what we can to cut back when necessary. But, ladies and gentlemen, we *do* need to bite the bullet and jump for those bigger-ticket items from time to time, if not for our own sanity/pampering, but also for the greater good. And what better way to celebrate our great nation’s birthday than to pump up her economy?
I’m not talking Cadillacs or vacation homes here. I’m talking things you wouldn’t normally buy, but could be convinced if someone names the right price. So, take a gander at some of the discounts around town during the Fourth of July weekend…
Most of us don’t have the luxury of dropping cash all willy-nilly on furniture. So, if you’re looking to upgrade your interiors, LaDiff is making this the weekend to do it. Their sale prices start at 10% off AND there is some kind of secret being revealed only to those who show up at the store. Combine that with the possibility of FINALLY getting your paws on one of their coveted lamps or sofas (among other things) and you’ve got an undeniable reason to spend at least part of your time down there this weekend.

It seems like everyone either *is* pregnant or knows someone who is. And being some who recently birthed a person, I clearly remember what a challenge it can be to find decent maternity clothes that don’t require you to tap into the yet-to-be-born wee one’s college fund. So, if you’re looking, Posh Belly is running quite the lovely sale on Friday: Purchase any summer dress, t-shirt, shorts, capris, bathing suits, underthings or children’s summer clothes and get a 2nd one of equal or lesser value at 50% off. Not bad, preggos, so head on out.

Ok, so some of you probably *aren’t* pregnant, and there’s a great option out there for you, too. I’m sure most of you ladies are familiar with Pink. Yes that store on the corner of Cary Court whose window displays cause you to stop in your tracks, tear up, and maybe even sigh a little. Well, if you’re in the mood to treat yourself to something special, you’ll be able to do it this weekend without making your credit card scream. They’re offering 20% off regular merchandise AND 10% off sale merchandise. And they’re open on July 4th from 10 to 3, so you’ll be able to outfit yourself in something snazzy before heading out to the festivities.

Shoes! Shoes! SO MANY SHOOOOOEEEES! Saxon‘s 50% off summer annual sale is going on this weekend, along with 60 to 70% off their backroom stock. And even though it’s summer, it’s not socially acceptable to wear flip-flops everywhere you go. Honor your founding fathers by gettin’ some new kicks, y’all!

As well all know, summer means time for home improvements, and I imagine a good portion of you will be spending part of your weekend making a few touch ups around tu casa. Although Home Depot isn’t local, we’ve got one here, so let’s make good use of it. They’re currently boasting 10% off major appliances (with free delivery and haul-away) and 25% off selected patio furniture with FREE shipping. Seriously. Free shipping! Do you KNOW how much patio furniture weighs?

True, wine isn’t necessarily a big ticket item, but who doesn’t love booze bought on the cheap? This Friday you can take 20% off 10+ bottles of wine to help you stock up for your weekend festivities. And while you’re there, they’re offering half-off starters until 6pm, to help you start the holiday off right.
