Financially Smart in 2013

I vow to be financially smart in 2013 and beyond!

That means no excessive, impulsive or panic-buying modes. And guess what I already survived January without buying major things, mostly just groceries and toiletries. What is most difficult was January happens to be the month of my fave sale season which is the Dubai Shopping Festival!

How was I able to do it? It's not easy, but since I have this goal I know it will be worth it.

1. I avoid malls like a plague, I keep telling myself I don't need anything so instead of wasting my time I could do other things than malling.
2. I buy what I need, with a grocery list on hand. And some extra but not much like before.

I hope to adapt the system religiously and save as much as possible. I'm looking into different kinds of investments available and those that I can afford.

GITEX 2012

It’s the annual Dubai techy sale, GITEX which started last Saturday September 29 and will end till October 6. That’s 8 days shopping spree for the latest and best electronics available in town. For this year’s event, the location was moved from Airport EXPO to a more convenient Dubai World Trade Center.

Discounted prices and great freebies enough to entice every shopper. So be warned.

Shopping for Eid

While Ramadan is the time for fasting and prayers for our Muslim brothers and sisters, Eid is the time for festivities. Eid Al Fitr will start on the eve of Aug 18 Saturday and a lot of stores are giving great discounts on food, clothes, jewelries, electronics and more. Eid can be similarly compared to Christmas for Christians. 

There are different night markets or souq around Dubai showcasing different items from other Muslim countries

or opt for the convenience of malls like Diera City Center, Mall of the Emirates or IBN Battuta to shop for your Eid requirements. 

I'll check both just in case.

Back to School Haircut

This post brought to you by Regis Family of Brands. All opinions are 100% mine.

A new school year meaning it's time for a new haircut. I remember I get really giddy and excited when I was still attending school and would always want to be well presented on the first day. That includes a new haircut, perm or highlights, though I only got the later when I was in college. Now it's my nephew whom I need to accompany to get his new haircut. But I might also decide to have my hair styled too. 


Kids and adults will benefit from this great deal from fifteen salon brands and over 4500 locations across the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. Print the coupon and present it to the participating salon to avail of the $7.99 or $9.99 haircut (price depending on participating salon). If you're using a mobile, just touch and hold the screen to save the coupon image. Stll having problems, email with the salon brand and they will send you the coupon. 

Haircut Coupon-a-thon

Now you don't have any reason not to get the coupon and a discounted back to school haircut. I am particularly interested since I usually have my haircut or styled at First Choice Haircutters. I find their salon very spacious, clean and have a friendly ambiance. 


I am sure you'll find a perfect salon from the fifteen participating salons near your place. So let's all be ready for the new school term whether we are students or just want to have something new.

Back to School Sale

This post brought to you by Famous Footwear. All opinions are 100% mine.


I love shopping but I am also a very picky and price conscious. I always hunt for bargains, even if others view it as a waste of time I can’t resist a sale. You really have to allot some time to check everything out like the seam of a dress or a sole of a shoe. Usually bargain items cannot to be exchanged.

A new school term is one of my favorite times for bargains. There’s always some back to school promo whether for clothes, shoes, bags and other school items. And I was particularly interested in Famous Footwear’s Back to School BOGO or Buy One Get the Other at half price. They have great selection of shoes, not just school shoes mind you.  I bought my nephew a new school shoe and the other one at half the price is for me. I also was introduced to their free Rewards Program, where you get special discount offer just by signing up. You also earn 1 point for every $1 you spend either in-store or online. Those points can be accumulated and exchanged up to $100 per year. 


So what are you waiting for, grab this BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon and head to Famous Footwear. Choose from their wide array of branded shoes, designs, sizes and more. This is a great back to school offer, so hurry and buy your kids or even yourself some new shoes. You don't wanna miss this chance.
