Do You Know Alice?

If you don't, I am about to introduce you to someone that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. I don't mean to start a feud, but I am sick of Target. The one by my house is "under construction" which roughly translates into all check out operators have packed up their manners, the store is filthy and the stock is nonexistent. And let me tell you, when you have gone to the trouble of making a list, taking the time to drive there and getting your child to sit still, not being able to take care of your list is more than a little annoying.

So this morning when I stopped by my farmer's market, a neighbor introduced me to Alice.

So friends meet ALICE.

Alice is a fabulous website that allows you to create a FREE account. After you have created your account, you can select your products...she has everything from after school snacks to toilet bowl cleaner to band aids to ziplocs. The prices are AMAZING, plus they accept coupons, and you don't even have to clip them. They find the coupons printed in the paper and apply them to your order. You still pay sales tax, but you are no longer spending money on gas to drive to the store.

Oh yeah, and shipping, IT IS FREE, no matter what you purchase...yep 1 item=FREE SHIPPING, 50 rolls of paper towels and 12 jugs of Cheer..yep FREE SHIPPING.

And the prices, well I have proof. I save ALL of my receipts. I made the dreaded Target run on Tuesday night: cleaning supplies for the housekeeper, toothpaste, stain spray, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent and windex, etc. If I would have purchased all of these EXACT SAME items at Alice, I would have spent $19.32 less, not to mention the value of my time. And $20 is Starbucks for week.

I know I will get some negative comments for my Target comments, but the economy is in rough shape and I refuse to spend money at stores that employ rude people. Period. I vote everyday with my pocketbook.

Manners matter. So does saving money.

So go say hello to Alice!

Thanks for the tip! I have two great Targets that I frequent and love. But I love savings more so I will give Alice a try. How did you find this site?

I do like Le Target, however often I find the cute items online rather than in the store. Looks like Alice is worth a try!
