Slickdeals and Challenge Update...352 days to go!

Happy Thursday, all! I've discussed how to get good deals on One Deal At a Time, I've discussed how to get cheap/free underwear, now I'm gonna tell you about in This is where I go before I buy ANYTHING online.

You'll find the best deals on, from coupons for $10 off of $10 or more at various retailers, to computers, to restaurants, the list goes on. So, here's how to check slickdeals:

1) Go to, preferably with an idea of what you are looking for (Like, if you want a coupon before you go to Quiznos or JCPenney or something)

2) The front page has all the "hottest" deals that have been "repped" enough. If something is repped it just means people have tried the deal, it went well, and they were happy.

3) If you can't find any deal on the front page, search it in the search box (of course). Upper right.

4) The second best deals are always on the Hot Deals page. There's a link on the right hand side for it. This is where all deals are. I've found some of the best deals there for clothes, shoes, home goods, etc.

5) Finally, don't let do all the work. If you are getting something from a retailer, go to or just google "____(name of retailer) coupon" and you may find more codes for free shipping or further discounts.

I know this all seems rather self-explanatory. But, it may help you out in  your search for a good deal. This was my go-to site whenever I was looking for...well....anything. If you have any questions, let me know!

Mini-challenge update: The Challenge is going fine up to this point. I started school again and sometimes seeing other people wearing cute clothes makes me want to get something new because it looks so cute on them. So, I've come to despise all my adorably dressed classmates (JUST KIDDING!). But, when I realize I can't buy anything it just simplifies the whole thing. Tomorrow, I will update on our first credit card bill since I started the challenge! Here's a teaser: I liked what I saw!

Before I sign out, I will leave you with an idea of something that is NOT a slick deal OR a good idea. But it is hilarious...Let's just say that I am ever-thankful that Lysol changed their product line!

Have a great night all:)

P.S. Big thanks to my Dad for turning me on to in the first place! :)


  1. Oh my gosh! I've missed so many handy posts in the last couple of days. Silly computer pooping out on me! I even lost the site in reformatting. It was almost a tragedy! But alas, I found you, and thusly want to thank you for your last couple of posts. So many good tips.

    Now, off I go to sign up for Victory Secret. Who can say no to free VS undies! I don't care what color they are!

  2. So sorry about your computer! But, thank you so much for finding the site again:). Glad you liked the tips...and I hope that you get some good free stuff from VS!:) Have a good one, and I'll send happy thoughts to your computer:)

  3. All I have to say is...MMMM....mediciney! Yes, I am a class act all the way. No surprises, I'm sure.

  4. Lol, are you drunk already? I'm just kidding, I think we are equally classy because I thought much the same thing. Lol....

  5. The lysol thing is scary!!!
    For the other: I've used many times and have found great deals... esp on shipping costs!

  6. I know, isn't it awful? Really made me laugh though. Thanks for the retailmenot rep, it's a great site!
