Welcome to THE MOUTH of the South Bay

Hello and welcome to South Bay Mouth.

 Many of you may already know why this is site is called The Mouth, but for those that don't, locals commonly call the South Bay, "Mouth Bay."  The South Bay is a section of  South Los Angeles County encompassing a cluster of beach cities.

For a long time now I have wanted to create a place where locals and visitors alike can see what is going on and available to them in the South Bay.  Although I have lived most of my life in the area, I realize there is so much to do and see that I was never aware of.  I hear of great events and local fun and often when I share it with others they say they have lived here for so long and they never knew about it!  So, here we are... My hopes are that this site will provide something new to improve the quality of your life in the South Bay.  I do believe this site will be beneficial to both those living the single life and to families.  Please visit the South Bay Mouth often to stay on top of special events, new restaurants/shops, bargains and sales, reviews and opinions, bands and music, a video from an aspiring Chef or even just a photo of a beautiful sunset.

Stay tuned for updates and posts and please leave comments and share us with your friends.

Shopping Online with Gift Cards and How to Benefit More from it!

Over the past couple of months I have been paying attention to ways I can benefit by participating in online promotions.  One site that I participate it is e-rewards, which is a quick consumer survey site.  I put in a few minutes each week when they ask me to answer some questions, no big deal.  A few weeks ago I cashed in my rewards for $15 Borders Bucks.  That is a FREE BOOK or more!  I was given a couple small Borders Gift Cards for Christmas so together this makes for an even greater deal.

Today, I decided to redeem my Borders bucks and my gift card so I went through Shop At Home.  After ordering 3 books, all about travel since I am overdue on an escape, my $45 bill came to nothing.  Not only am I not paying anything out of pocket, they will all be shipped for free because it is over $25.  The extra bonus is because I used Shop At Home I will get back 7% of my order.  Basically I am going to make near $4 and I did not even spend a penny out of pocket.

That means I used $30 in gifts and I profited from my online awareness about $19.  Awesome!!!  So for any of you that have gift cards to spend, I certainly not only recommend trying to do some online shopping with Shop At Home but also be aware of the deals out there.  Before I buy anything online I always go to google and enter a search for a coupon code... example "Borders, coupon, promo code" and I look through the results.   Then go click on Shop At Home and enter the company you want to shop with and start getting money back on the purchases.  

It does not hurt to be a smart consumer, sure it may take a couple extra minutes, but when your friends are wondering how you can afford to go to dinner or buy those new shoes... it is not because you make a lot of $, rather it is because you pay attention to how you buy!

*there, my secrets are out*  Happy Shopping with all those Holiday Gift Cards!
