SEGMENT 2 is one of my new favorite sites to look for deals on name brand clothing, shoes and home items.

Right now they have 30% off Ralph Lauren clothing and shoes. Great deals on Adidas, Michael Kors, Tumi, Urban Outfitters, Mango and more.

Spring is a market place for name brand retailers to sell clearance quickly and effectively.  All orders ship free and there’s no membership fees or requirements.

If you’re new to hit the ‘Sale’ table to see all the clearance deals + you can get 10% off your first order with code SPRING10 & don’g forget to shop through to get 5% cash back on your purchase.


Planning for fall break? Book a free Hyundai Montgomery Plant Tour. The kids and I recently took the tour and it is literally one of the best factory tours I’ve ever taken. You’ll ride on a cart through all the processes from start to finish, excluding the painting process.

It’s about an hour long and worth every minute of driving south. The tour books fast, so if you want to secure a spot for your fall break go here and check the calendar.  They do not allow photos but there is a museum area where photography is allowed:

Kids must be at least 6 years old.
