About STUFF

I love stuff - and I love telling people about great stuff they shouldn't miss. I'm the girl at a cocktail party that has to spill about a great new find.  So in 2010, I started writing about all the stuff I don't think you should live without.

Since I was a little girl, I always had to have the latest, most original or coolest stuff. I've had a nameplate necklace since Carrie bought hers.  Amy Winehouse?  I had her first album (it's called Frank - and it's fantastic).

Beauty, Design, TV, Music and more - I'll tell you all about the good STUFF.

"Let me earn your business".

Does anyone ever love to go car shopping?  All those stereotypes about car salespeople come from somewhere...and it's been my experience most of them are close to reality.

my new ride: so cute!
Last week I finally caved and went out car shopping.  The lease was almost up on my car, and it was time to look for something to purchase this time.  I'm not going to get into the whole lease/purchase debate... we don't have that kind of time (or me that kind of patience).

One thing I do know about is Car Cost Canada.  In the last few years we have bought a couple new cars (all that cheap financing helps), and this website can give you the dealer wholesale cost on a new car...it's a great tool to give you some ammunition for negotiation.

A membership to the website costs $40 plus tax, and with that you get a report on the dealer cost of any make/model of a new car (years 2010 - 2012 are currently available).   You can look at up to 5 cars, and this month they've doubled it to 10.  I've still got 9 left on mine...if you are looking to buy I'll share mine with you!

So when the car salesman says "let me ask my manager" if he can go any lower...you will KNOW he can.

It saved me some money...so I had to share!

Cracked up when I read the title of this post cause I knew where it came from. The guy at the dealer said those exact words to me as I was on my way out the door to the Honda dealer next door after listening to their 'negotiations' for 30 mins without getting the price.

The whole story is here on my blog. http://bwest.ca/blog/car-dealerships-social-media-and-purchase-process
