*$2,000 Nordic Trak Treadmill for $75*

I am SO STOKED about a new purchase of ours, yes debt free. Yesterday, my mom called and said that there was a brand new $2,000 Nordic Trak treadmill that someone had just dropped off at the Sugarhouse D.I. and they were selling it for $85! I was over there in 10 minutes and FELL IN LOVE. The worker knocked it down to $75 for me.......

 My Bombshell Bargain advice is to try out the Sugarhouse and 700 E. D.I.s! You'll say, "Well, I just don't have patience for the D.I., I'd rather go somewhere easier"  

Well here's my view: This treadmill costs $2,000. To pay for it retail you'd have to work for 200 hours at $10 an hour. However, I got it for $75 being inside for ten minutes. 

The most time I've ever spent at the D.I. is an hour but I find quality items worth purchasing 95% of the time. Try it. Spend an hour scouring it and you'll thank me.

If you don't have an "eye" for that kind of stuff. CALL ME, We'll make it a shopping date!

*Get a Decent Car for under $2,300*

Car shopping sucks! Unfortunately, that has been basically a part time job for my husband and I for the past few months. To get enough money to pay down student loans we had to sell our $20,000 SUV for two cars we could pay for with cash.
Our former car-2007 Ford Escape-24 MPG-$20,000

Of course, the only place to find a car that cheap and in decent condition is on KSL. Dealers are freakin' RIP OFFS and a huge majority of them are SCAM artists. I can't even tell you how many times we almost got robbed.

Brittany'y TEN Rules for Car Shopping

1) Pay with cash (but always get a bill of sale)-when you flash the cash, people are more likely to respond. Cash it a great negotiating tool when you're trying to knock the price down. People have an emotional attachment to cash. If you purchase the car for your safety and the seller's...always obtain a bill of sale.

2) Buy Privately (a lot of the time great cars get put up for sell because people just want to get rid of having them as an expense).
If you follow these rules, one day you can own a car this sexy! :)

3) AVOID dealers at all cost (even if they are family friends, you will still pay way over what you could get it if you buy privately).

4) Get it checked out by a mechanic before you buy it. I happen to know a mechanic who is the most honest man I have ever met and he gives great service for an incredibly low price. Every diagnosis he has given me on a car was done for free. (not saying he will do yours for free but he might).

5) Do NOT finance or put on a credit card (redundant to #1)

The point of getting a car if you're young or in debt is to get OUT of debt so you can enjoy wealth later on and a nice car in the future. Drive a clunker now and you'll be happy you did. Therefore, financing would make your purchase even more ridiculous. 

6) Set expectations for yourself (are you willing to put a few dollars into the body, mechanics, are you okay with "as is"?)

7) To get the best bang for your buck and reliability on a long lasting car, Search KSL for:
1. Year over 1997
2. Miles under 130,000
3. Type: Hyundai, Honda, Mazda, Acura, Honda, Volvo (foreign cars are best)
4. Between $1,000-$3,000

Or this sexy......
If you want a long-lasting transmission avoid: Chevy, Ford, Chrysler, GMC etc. But these are great SUVs

If you want great gas mileage: Mazda, Hyundai, Acura, Honda, Volvo, Kia (though not the best cars) etc.
8) Be diligent in your search and never settle-watch KSL like a hawk and especially after 5pm when people post great car ads. If you test drive a car and you feel there might be problems with it, don't settle.  Great cars get posted EVERY day.

9) Check consumer reviews and Kelly Blue Book-If the majority of the reviews on the car are bad, don't buy it. If it is over KBB, don't even bother, you're getting ripped off.

10) Get a car fax report (I think it's like $30 for 8 reports)-If the title is bad, your insurance goes up.

JJ's Car- 2005 Hyundai Accent-98K miles-34 MPG-Great body shape-no mechanical issues-Clean Title $2,950
2000 Mazda 626-126K miles-Good Condition-no major mechanical issues-power windows,seats,steering-28 MPG-$1,700

Here are the 2 cars we were able to pick up collectively for $4,650 (Approx. 2,300 each) and guess what? Our car loan is GONE and we have $MONEY$. For now, drive cars like these so one day, you'll get that SEXY Bentley! :)


*Build a Home Gym for under $155*

 Okay, so I just got certified as a personal trainer and I needed to stock up on exercise equipment to provide for my future clients. Most importantly, what was constantly confirmed to me during my certification process is that you don't need a gym pass to get a great body!! Besides, the average gym pass will cost you around $500 a year. OUCH!

I decided to specialize my certification in celebrity toning and cross-country/track/marathon/half-marathon training. I've noticed that the majority of celebrities get their great bodies from at home equipment and workouts (aka ROAD running).

So, if you  need to get in shape for summer and you don't like waiting for machines, balls, or free weights at at crowded gym....get this stuff....at Wal-Mart and on KSL.

1) Jillian Michaels Power Dumbbell Set $33.54 (Wal-Mart)

2) Danskin 10lb Kettlebell-$18.77

3) Danskin Yoga Stretch Bands-$10.00
4) Gold's Gym Jump Rope- $1.98
5) Extra Thick Pilates Yoga Mat-$13.94

6) Elliptical or Treadmill-$60-KSL 

7) Gold's Gym Fitness Ball-$19.99

TOTAL: $154.00


*Get an Easter Weekend Spa Treatment for $35*

So, this will be a quick post cause I am super busy with school (which is why I have not blogged at all lately..or had very detailed posts). but........


Anyway, I saw this on Groupon and totally loved it, so I decided to steal it.

I am seriously a mess and in deep need of a spa treatment (who doesn't love massages, mani/pedis, hot stone treatments, eyelash extensions etc.?) Even better...at a state of the art salon?

For those of us who are Sandy/Draper peeps (shout out!), we all know about the "ritzy" Treehouse Athletic Club and their Falling Waters Salon..


Well, I'm prettymuch going to use this deal.
$35 for $70 worth of spa treatments
(It would cover at least one swedish massage or whatever else you would want).



*Unlimited Seven Peaks, Trafalga, Utah Flash for $39.95*

Oh my gosh....I am SO sick of school! I have the hardest time concentrating especially during these last 2 weeks. All I can think about is being outside and getting a tan! SUMMER can't come soon enough!!

Lake Powell, Cali, Vegas, Jackson, Bear Lake, mini-golfing, date nights, snow cones...the thought of being in school never ceases to depress me...

BUT! My mood just improved! I found an unlimited pass that includes:
  Seven Peaks, Trafalga, & Utah Flash games ALL SUMMER for only $39.95...and it's normally $327.00! Yeah, it's an 88% discount!
