There are two things that I just can’t seem to get enough of, online shopping and saving money. Admit it… how many times have you gone onto an online store, loaded up your cart, hit check out and then once you’ve seen the total you close the window as fast as you can?! haha! Admit it, you’ve all done it! Well, have I got something fun for you!, formerly known as is an AWESOME one-stop shop for pretty much anything you can think of, but it’s all ON SALE! Seriously. It’s all things at a discounted price. I’m in love. Here’s how it all started… “In early 1999, Dr. Patrick M. Byrne recognized the potential in liquidating excess inventory through the Internet. Up until then, bargain-seeking consumers had relied upon far-off outlet centers with crowds and limited product selections. In addition, small retailers had little access into the world of closeout merchandise. launched with the mission to be the premier company to sell excess inventory through the Internet. Since its October 1999 launch, customers have saved millions of dollars off manufacturers’ recommended retail prices.”


With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I know you’re all thinking about what to get that special someone in your life. If you’re stumped, one of the great features on is the gift guide! With options to select the occasion, age, gender and price, it will generate a list of awesome and unique gift ideas!
