Last post about shopping. :(

I learn how to shop green, and what was the first mall opened and it is still stands today. And people still go see it and still shop there it is on the biggest mall. Shopping green is when you have to find organic clothes, and Beauty. I would love to shop green but I do not know what stores sales organic clothes and other things that are organic. :/ But if I could I would shop green :) Because I would love to save the world as little as I can. If that means shopping green.  I also learn how to save money when I am shopping, and that the prices are rising higher. I also learned how to look for sales in the store and online. OR if I go on the stores website to see if there are any sales going on the store. So I can plan head of time. :)  I also learn that a lot of people like Target more than Wal-Mart. Because their allies are bigger than Wal-Mart.  Also that Wal-Mart has better food then Target does and a better toy selected than Target does. I love shopping at Wal-Mart. I don't shop at Target as much as I shop at Target. They both have good sales going on. Like after Christmas sales and on black Friday or any other days.   Shopping is more a female thing than a male thing. Males only go shopping for shoes and clothes. Female goes shopping for everything.  Female goes shop for clothes, shoes, earing, necklace, belts, beauty thing and other stuff. But both males and females shop for food and other products they need. The most difficult and challenging aspects was hyper linking and making a blog roll. And finding picture to go with all of my post. And trying to think of things to put on others people blog. So I would not put things other people did. But a couple of times I did put almost the same things other people already said on the post. The most rewarding lessons were the ones where we could write about anything we liked or anything else about are topic.  My favorite post was the one I wrote about how country music was my favorite music. This will be my last post, because I will not of the time to post more over the summer break. And I would never go back on this website again. I might go back on it reread all my post and to see what other people put on them. I don’t know if I will delete my blog yet because I do not know how to delete it. Now I know more about how to save money, how to shop green then I knew before. I know more about shopping now than I every did. But I loved making this blog and I love reading my blog families blog. And what they did there blog on, and what they learn about there blog.

My Favorite Music is Country (:

     I love country music because the artist tells a story about their life.  Country music does not talk about doing drugs, and having sex all the time like rap does. I mean I listen to rap sometimes, but I rather listen to country more. I know some people hate country music; I am not saying I hate rap music. My favorite artists are Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift just to name a few, there is a lot more artist I love. My favorite songs are who are you when I am not looking by Blake Shelton, My kind of Party by Jason Aldean,  This is Country music by Brad Paisley, I go back to December by Taylor Siwft.  Country music  is about real life prombles they are going throught. It’s a lot eaiser to understand then rap music.  I just don’t listen to country, I also listen to Christian music, and Jesse Mccartney.

Wal-Mart VS. Target (:

Wal-Mart is open 24 hours.
Target opens at 8 until 11
Wal-Mart has more sales then Target
Both Wal-Mart and Target have clothes.
Target has good make-up
Target has better shoes
Target has more toys.
Wal-Mart has better prices then Target
Wal-Mart is bigger then Target
Wal-Mart has smaller aisles thenTarget
                                                                                   *Both have an online shop
                                                                                      *Both have everything
                                                                                     Wal-Mart has better food

          10 reason why people love Target       
Why did the 911 hijackers buy their box cutters at Wal-Mart? Why do serial killers featured on Court TV buy duct tape and rope at Wal-Mart? Because they feel comfortable there. They’re with their people. Did you know (according to this study) the average Wal-Mart has almost 450% more police calls than the average Target store?
Target Doesn’t Destroy Small Towns
My parents live in the lake country of Northern Minnesota. It’s beautiful; please visit sometime. They live near Park Rapids (pop 3,300) and Wadena (pop 4,200), two quaint small towns about 30 miles apart. Wal-Mart is building a box store in each town. These cities have vibrant downtowns with ice cream confectionaries, candy shops, coffee shops, theaters, dime stores, bookstores, restaurants, and hardware stores. We know what happens when a box store opens on the edge of town, the downtown dies. Economists say that the little shops in town are economic dinosaurs. Maybe the economists are right, but I will still grieve the loss of these special places.
Target doesn’t build stores in towns with populations of 4,200 or 3,300 and it isn’t on their agenda (as far as I know).
Target’s Prices are Competitive
Employees (An Anecdote)Sunday Sep 10th 10:00 AM
Wal-Mart: I smiled at the people greeter. She didn’t greet me or anyone else. She stood there like a zombie looking straight ahead scowling.
After spending 15 minutes looking for a lunch box, I asked an employee where the lunch boxes were. She led us aimlessly around the store with no idea where they were. Eventually she asked another employee working at the jewelry counter, “Hey ya know where the lunch boxes are?”
She looked up from the phone, chewing her gum, said “Nope”, and returned to her telephone.
We didn’t find a lunch box.
As I left, I saw 25 checkout lanes. Two were open. The lines were 15 deep. After 60 minutes, I walked out empty handed and nauseous.
Sunday Sep 10th 11:15 AM
Target: The people greeter smiled and asked, “Can I help you?”
“Where are the lunch boxes?” I asked.
She whispered something into a microphone on her chest, paused, and said, “Behind aisle 8 against the back wall.”
Target had ten lanes open and two with no line. In less than ten minutes, I found what I wanted and left with a smile on my face.
I don’t know if Target offers higher pay or better benefits but I can tell that they attract different employees; employees that care. Wal-Mart employees appear indifferent.
Happy Customers
At the Target store near my home, I see energetic customers smiling, visiting, and laughing.
At Wal-Mart I see people moping around with frowns, yelling at their kids, and everyone looks depressed.
In my experience, the difference in cleanliness between the two chains is dramatic, especially the bathrooms. I brought my son into the bathroom at Wal-Mart and it was so nasty I’ll never bring him there again.
Better Parking Lots
Wal-Mart: One way, narrow, and angled. I’d show you how bad it is but Wal-Mart could sue me if I post a picture of their store. Yet another reason to love ‘em.
Did you know that most Wal-Marts allow people to camp in their parking lots? Is that safe?
Target: Square, two way, parking lots which are safer and easier to navigate.
Target Parking Lot
Positive Atmosphere
Wal-Mart’s atmosphere is cheap and crass.
Target’s atmosphere exudes progress and style.
Go to each store and soak in the whole scene and you’ll know what I mean.
Wider Aisles
Wal-Mart: I’d show you how narrow, crowded, and disorganized their aisles are but…Wal-Mart could sue me if I post a picture of their store.
Target: Wide spacious aisles
Target Aisle
I have both a Wal-Mart and a Target five minutes from my house. There is no comparison in the shopping experience.
My first priority in life right now is to maintain a positive mental state. I’ve found it nearly impossible to maintain a positive mental state inside a Wal-Mart store. The place oozes negativity.
When I leave Wal-Mart I feel like I should go home and shower, like I’ve just visited a seedy porn shop or something.
When I leave Target, I feel energetic and I want to return..

Going Green for Shopping :)

When Shelly White goes shopping she brings her own bags, she also tries to find organic clothing. "Like for example clothing sheets, and upholstery for chairs and sofas- all of these fabrics can be made from cotton, wool, silk or hemp that has not been treated with chemicals or pesticides" (Bjornlund, 2009) They might cost a little more than other clothing, but if you want to go green this is the way to go. :) When you go shopping for health and beauty products, try and find some that are organic, also try to find some that have not been tested on animals. So when you go shopping look for organic clothes like organic cotton. You can find organic jeans, and organic cotton T-shirts for men. I know what you are thinking what is organic clothing ; well it is better for the earth. I really do not know what organic clothing is either lol. A lot of people say organic fabrics are softer and feel better against the skin. So if you like you clothing soft and feel nice against your skin, then organic clothing is for you. :) But if not then not buy it lol. So have fun shopping GREEN!!! :)

History of shopping :)

The first mall every built was the Southdale and it open in 1956, and it still stands today, It is in Edina Minnesota. So if you every go to Minnesota you should check this mall out. The mall’s designer was an immigrant from Austria, Victor Gruen. He wants to bring the community feeling of the European arcade to the suburbs.

Some of the stores in the Fl mall are the m~m store, Dillards, Macy. The first store in the Florida Mall was opened in 2002. Now the Florida Mall is the most visited mall in Fl. Everyone loves going to the Fl mall, because they have so many stores to look at. My Dad loves the Fl mall because it has the M&M store. What is your favorite store at the Fl mall??

15 easy ways to save money on clothes shopping.

·  1
Before adding to your wardrobe, evaluate what's in it. Many women have wardrobes filled with items that were 'too much of a good deal to pass by' that still have tags attached. Add those to the 'if I lose 10lbs I'll fit into that' and you have an overflowing wardrobe! A good rule of thumb is, if you haven't worn it for one year, it shouldn't be in your closet.

Items in good condition can be taken to consignment stores or auctioned online with EBay. While you may not get back what you paid out, it's something and will give you a bit of fun money to shop with soon.

· 2
Set a monthly or yearly clothing budget...and stick to it.
· 3
If you have friends, family or work colleagues with similar clothing sizes, tastes and/or budgets, why not arrange a clothing swap party? Each guest can bring with them a few items of clothing that they can exchange with other guests. Not only will this trade enhance your wardrobe, it will allow you the chance to mix with friends you may not see very often.
· 4
Before buying an item of clothing, do your research! Don't just head to the mall with your credit card and buy, buy, buy. Look the item up on the internet to see how much it's being sold for. Many online retailers, catalogue companies and outlets sell items at a reduced rate. Not only will you save money this way, you'll avoid the lines at the checkout too!
· 5
Just before you head to the checkout with any purchase, ask yourself 'Is this necessary?' If you can't say yes, then you're best placing the item back on the rack.
· 6
Think ahead. Buy winter clothes in spring and summer clothes in the autumn. While this might sound a bit backward, it means you'll be buying items without paying full price.
· 7
Keep your lifestyle in mind when you're purchasing clothes. Most people wear only 25% of their wardrobe regularly. If on a day-to-day basis you dress in jeans and a t-shirt, there seems little point in having 20 dresses in your closet.
· 8
Don't go overboard. Rather than buy a brand new set of clothes each season or year, try to update the items you have already. Add accessories such as jeweler, handbags, scarves and hats to keep your look up to date.
· 9
Go 'au naturel'. Natural fibers are always in fashion and they last longer too! Investing in linen and wool items is always a good idea.
· 10
Does the item pass the comfort test? Buy clothes because of how they fit, not because of the size on the label. If they aren't comfortable, pass them by. Purchasing them will only mean you've wasted your cash.
· 11
Keep it basic and flattering. Purchasing classic styles that flatter your figure is more important than following a (possibly unflattering) trend. Trends come and go, but classics should make up your staple wardrobe. To keep your look updated, use accessories to keep up-to-date with trends.
· 12
Keep coordinated. Ensure any new items of clothing you buy will work with items you already have in your wardrobe. I tend to stick to a small palette of colors to keep it simple.
· 13
Washing instructions aren't just to be read on laundry day. Before buying an item, find out how it's cleaned. Do your best to avoid dry clean only items as these will be more expensive to clean.
· 14
Thrift shops, consignment stores, flea markets, garage sales and online auctions are loaded with great clothing finds - at great prices. If your budget is tight but you prefer designer labels, you might find yourself a bargain and a fun day of treasure hunting.
· 15
Wholesalers are also worth considering if you have friends also interested in saving money. Items such as children’s clothing, underwear, socks and scarves are good purchases to make in this way. Your cost per item is reduced by buying in bulk.   I hope this help you guys out when you going shopping (:

Price rise!!!

The cutes clothes teenagers wear are tank top and shorts they also like to wear dressing and flip-flops. But when it’s cold outside they wear boots jean and a cute long sleeve shirt and a cute jacket.  But clothes are getting more expensive in 2011 as cotton price rise. So I would look for sales if you can. To save money on clothes. It does not matter if you get your clothes on sale they can still be cute. I get a lot of clothes on sale, and some I do not. But I looked at the price before I buy the clothes.  You don't have to wake up at 2:00 am the day after Thanksgiving and line up with a million other shoppers just to find the best clothing sales of the year. Many fantastic discounts are offered throughout the months. All you need to do is look in the right place at the right time.”  If you do not know how to fine good sales at your favorite store go on there website to see if they have any good sales going on. Or can also sign up for the mailing list so you can see head of time if they are going to have sale. If they are having a good sale then I would go.

Did know you???

Did you know that “shopping is a woman thing? It’s a contact sport like football. Women enjoy the scrimmage, the noisy crowds, and the danger of being trampled to death, and the ecstasy of the purchase”.  It is also a hobby for most teenage girls, they have money but they don’t know what to do with it. So they call up the best friends and have a girl day and going shopping all day, until they shop tail they drop. LOL  (:   A lot of hate shopping because they feel it is a girl thing. They only go shopping if their Girl friends ask them to go with them.
