Live to talk about how they've been building resilience into their businesses this year. And today my conversationalist jianlin mop. Ceo and co founder of zola. Zola is a one stop shop for couples. Planning a wedding from creating a wedding website. Finding local vendors making registry even creating a photo album of the big day with the wedding industry completely hammered by the pandemic last year solely focused on releasing new products and features for couples like a homegoods marketplace and even hosting virtual weddings on its platform. We aimed couples from that first aid. Get engaged through their entire wedding planning journey into their festivals of newlywed life with the tools and technology that we build to help them plan dream and bring to life bear fantasy wedding so basically you go on the website and you can do everything like from finding the person to do your flowers to a you to the caterer to the registry to the invitations. Everything yes wedding website. you'll save the dates and then you'll album of you're beautiful photos with photographer that you found on seoul ios chicken out the website earlier today. It's super cool. How did it. How did it start had it. I know it's you start in twenty thirteen And i think at the time you were working at guilt which is a the gilt groupe g. I l t nut gui. Tell me how how this idea came about well. I always dreamed about starting my own company. One day but i had never felt ready until really working for many years in product management which is really working alongside designers and engineers to build digital websites and mobile apps and so had gone that experience and in twenty thirteen That just happened to be all. My friends got married at exactly the same time. Everyone has that year where you're going to a wedding. Every weekend spending a lot of money. I was buying gifts from my friends. Women registries and found that the experience that i was going through their registered was just one of the worst shopping experiences i had ever seen. I was talking to nobu. Who is my co-founder zola. About how painful was and he's married and he was complaining about it from the couple's perspective. It's just terrible and we looked at each other and we said you know we've been working together to build great products when it we attacked this assets. We think we can do a much better job. And and that was how zola was born. I'm wondering you know. I mean this is twenty thirteen so this is still you know. The the ancient early days of of of web two point zero which is unbelievable Did you have initially when you went to people. I know a little bit your backstory. You grew up in australia. And then you came to the us business school and you had a bunch of Jobs in sort of adjacent kind of industries right. You worked at guilt and another an and also worked at another who. You're actually growing up in australia. It's a very remote country in that is literally on the the side of the world. And i had always can read about what what is happening in the world. And what is happening in the tech revolution that we all living through right now and i felt very removed from the action. So i moved to the us to really be a part of this Tech revolution underway and my dream was always to be like an entrepreneur. Like jerry yang. Who found yata. I had a picture of him on my wall. And because i'd never known really anyone else who worked in tech apart from the people that i read about in magazines you may dream actually came true in that i moved to the us. After business school. I was able to get a job at yahoo. Which jerry founded. And i think one of the best days there was when i walked past him in the hallway. Wow that as a result of working that. I got to learn from great product leaders. Who with some of the best in silicon valley. Who really told me. How do you think about creating a product that customers love and that they want to share with all their friends when you came up with the idea for for what is now zola and you started to talk to people about it. I have to imagine that some people said oh this industry saturated they're already. There's you know the not. There's a bunch of other sites that you know. There's a bunch of other people doing this. You don't want get into that business. That is exactly. I think there was a lot of from many places and for many investors. Who said like what you said. It's not possible to build a big business in weddings. Because there hasn't been one yet all. Do people really spend that much on weddings. All it's it's highly fragmented as an industry so then must be a reason for that and that sounded crazy to me. Because i knew how much my friends were spending tons of time and money i think weddings is one of the only times in your life where you spend on average in this country thirty thousand dollars on one day because we want to create a special memory inexperienced for yourself and your friends and so i knew it was a lot of business opportunity. It was an undeserved need. That was a passionate customer base and just because investors didn't feel personally connected to the pain point did it mean it to thin exist

We've been there by no means do am i just design fancy desire by no means that i have like five hundred dollars to do my college -partment right. What i want to do at home is starting out with your concept. Okay and then put all of the pieces that you're interested in on a concept board and get take that were with you when you're shopping and when you're at home goods and you're ready to do those stupid impulse purchases. Take that word out and be like.

You'd be surprised how few rain in those impulse purchases house saving. His moustache lightens is easier. Yes my gosh. That's so beautifully put when you say it. It sounds so obvious. But that's definitely something. I struggle with so hard told me this dog will. What am i going to do. A federal by this dog role. I it's in the air. they try. they try to say you know. Stick with your list. Stick with your concept word and then there are great finds there. You found some really great things that were with my. I try to stay true to that. Naccache excited put everything your car. I love that so much so we talked a little bit about finding like some examples of info pieces like the flower or the photo. What are some of your favorite places that you draw inspiration from is kind of like all over the place or do you of go to things that really deeply inspire you know. Of course. let's be really honest and frank. Kerr pinterest is though. It's great so i will say that if you're on your this first few hundred pages of pinterest. It's the same stuff right so if you're different you're going to have to do a deep dive so we like to say is find that you know chair. They love or find that whatever it is. Maybe you're really intimate century right. And you figure out the name of a charity like deep dive into that and then that will take you to other really interesting rooms and you'll get away from the disorder sort of stuff. You're seeing everywhere so good if you're willing to sit down into a deep dive. I like to olds. Who books like books real hard. You know find a designer or topic. You're interested if you want farmhouse than you know. Do some searching on amazon worse. Farmhouse designed books. You can get great inspiration from those pages that you know. A lot of that stuff is not on pinterest. So you're knocking not everywhere. I did a lot of inspiration. From austin is what the color palettes that are happening. How close structured is everything floral and saucers everything sharp edges. And how they feel about that and is gonna translate into if i hit more curved items or you know i think you start to develop your style when you're pulling things because people don't realize that they have their own patterns that emerge and with our clients do a pinterest board for us. They'll say we'll do. I need to tell you what i like in each picture. And i know 'cause i can tell if it's repeating throughout what you're picking so. I think that happens with with regular people to start picking me compile. Tear things out. Taxings things up. And you'll start to see a pattern and then you can kind of narrow it down from there right. I feel like part of your job as a designer. Obviously like did these beautiful spaces but there's another level of like really kind of like helping your clients figure out who they are style wise. And that's something. I feel like that when you can do that artfully like. That's when you get the coolest spaces. What does that process. look like. You mentioned the pincher sport but is that where you start or there's a consultation like what is that. Look like when we you know. Most of our artists are really large-scale right. So we're starting with these people when maybe they're buying a dirt lot and we're having to design their home from the ground up right and then we're not only designing interiors. Were signing all the finishes fixtures and then all the furnishings so the first thing like to do is save them from themselves right because we're giving them everything they're asking for the help that they need for right so the first thing we do. Is we through these. These pinterest boards. We asked them to pull some images. Maybe ten twenty images. It's really all we need. We start to see a pattern of what they like. And from there we say. How can we take this and make it cool. It's not a cool right having to take this push their boundaries. How can we take their level to wholeness and make it a level head right if we see that there it into brass. How do we rain that in. Say okay will. This house has to have longevity. What ross isn't trending in six years right. How do we incorporate those things that we see. They're gravitating toward in in a way. That will live with them for a long time. So a lotta times. it's really just pushing their boundaries. And saying you know. I see that you posted. A couple of pieces of contemporary are either boring but how these bright suit. Our job is to take them right. The edge of where they would say. I never would pick back but i actually love that. That's what you wanna tried. Do to yourself. If you're at home right. You know i do. I love this. I know everyone has this chair. But i found this chair. His kind of weird ways hungry woman. So you know. How can you get outside that that box of trends and really do something.
China says its economy grew 2.3% in 2020, but consumer spending fell
"Despite the worldwide pandemic. China says its economy grew 2.3% last year, NPR's Emily Fang reports it was the only major economy to expand last year. Things looked grim at the beginning of 2020. China had posted its first quarterly drop in economic activity ever because of widespread lockdowns but a strong recovery, particularly consumer spending during the last few months of the year. And China was able to overcome the initial economic slump. Trying to continues to maintain strict lockdowns and regions that experience just a handful of virus cases. But that is allowed China's businesses to reopen at pre epidemic levels. China's exports in particular have bounced back as global demand for medical supplies and HomeGoods grows. Chinese policymakers have pledged to continue policies that support private businesses in consumer demand, but will scale back some credit boosting policies in the coming months. Emily Fang. NPR NEWS
WSJ's Personal Tech Team Makes Their 2021 Predictions
"Okay. So we mentioned all that pandemic tack what has staying power. What's gonna stick around. I think good video calling stays or at least gets better and twenty twenty one. I've written a lot this year. About how crappy webcams are on laptops. And i think we will see improvements in two thousand twenty one at least on the built in hardware on laptops and computers. I think idea that we We we will return to something and probably start to have more in person meetings again. But i do not think the concept of video calling or even just taking video calls instead of regular phone calls is to go away. I think grocery delivery stays. I think a lot more people are willing to pay the four or five dollars extra for milk in order to save our off of shopping parking dealing with the woman number of choices in the in the grocery store and further to that i think that i think a lot of the e commerce days so it's easy if you're younger person i think like who wasn't using amazon but when you look at the numbers the option of especially for older folks has been really astonishing gets in certain segments from lack thirty percent of people above the sixty five using certain types of a delivery for various homegoods to seventy five percent. And we've talked about the mask bone before. Does that stick around do products like that. Stick around. I think masks are going to stay. I think we are going to see a big transition especially in cities to people wearing masks so things like mask phone where you can take a phone call and actually have the microphone inside the mask and sound a little bit better. Might be something that stays. I still think that's a pretty niche product. I don't think everyone's running out to buy a fifty dollar mask tech solutions that help you. Sanitizer disinfect your products. Or your home. The things around your home or even your gadgets like your phone those will also continue to be popular. We expect to see a couple of those at the consumer electronics. Show coming up in january of already. Gotten a number of pitches about that kind of tax. So i think that in twenty twenty one is people start to leave their homes more that that type of tech or that kind of solution will will be needed and of course one thing that's been on the rise this year is streaming services and at home entertainment options. Do you are on the show last year and talk about the explosion of new services coming on the scene and now they're all here and the whole cost at least a few bucks and i don't know about you guys but i'm definitely not willing to pay for all of them so what happens in the next year or how does this shakeout the yes you. People will narrow down their subscriptions. But i think these are going to get even more expensive and twenty twenty one. I think subscriptions as a whole. We're gonna see more price hikes. The big model around subscriptions is recurring revenue. So you are already continuing to pay company. Every month for whatever service they provide but then they start adding features in and so then they want you to pay more for them and we're starting to see that Whether it was netflix which seems to raise their prices. Every two weeks We've seen it around. Google starting to charge for their photos. Solution only gonna continue
Retail therapy is great, but returns can take the fun out of it
"In this pandemic shopping online way way more than we ever have. And sometimes we want to return things. We by which can be a hassle with shipping and restocking fees and printing out. Return labels with the printers. Definitely all have at home. This holiday season some retailers are trying to make returns easier like employees at simon malls will process returns for brands like levi's gap. So all you have to do is go to a mall. Kiosk with your item and qr code but as annoying as online returns can be for us. They might be worse for the retailers. Cerita dali is a retail analyst at forrester. She says when you return something you bought online it usually goes back to a warehouse and then the retailer has to decide what to do with it and either it will go to potentially what we call jobbers who buy the merchandise for cents on the dollar or it could get destroyed. If it's not in re salable condition out the other scenario. Is that if it actually is in resale condition. They need to think about whether they're going to mark it down or whether they're going to sell it. Put it back on the shelf at full price. It sounds like a lot of decisions to make a lot of decisions and that's why over the years. There's been a lot of return software. That's been created to try to keep track of all this stuff and try to create some consistency around the process. And does that software work. It can software make these kinds of decisions about. Should we accept this sweater back and should we resell it or destroyed or whatever to some degree. I mean there's some information that software can provide. It can let you know how much of the inventory is actually still being sold. It can tell you. is it a really hot item. And it's highly likely that there's a good chance that it could sell again at full price if you were to put it on the shelf but there's still a level of human interaction that's necessary. I mean somebody has to inspect the merchandise and assess whether it's been warning or you know. Is there a stain on it. Or is the tag missing because all of that can impact things like the sale ability and the salvage ability of that merchandise so it sounds like getting online returns that are mailed back to you as a retailer. That sounds like a pretty expensive process. Oh yeah i mean it's expensive to ship and then it's kind of equally more expensive to return because you could not only do you have to pay for the shipping back which many retailers often do but then kind of you could be losing the salvage ability if it's not in resale lable condition. So that's why some of the i would say. The stingiest retailers often don't pay return shipping. Because they are trying to dissuade you from returning altogether and others may even charge a restocking fee in addition to you know kind of making you pay return shipping to really really discourage you from returning that merchandise. I mean it sounds like retailers are really been trying to figure this out to hack this process right and make returns easier for them and for us And also cheaper for them. Are there any other ways. They're doing that are weezer using technology to do it. Well i mean the the cheapest return is the return. That never happens right. So having more accurate sizing charts having more accurate photography. The closer that you can be to. The actual product is and simulate the lighting and the coloring so that it actually looks like what ship that's the ideal And that can reduce returns to one of the number one reasons that people return either clothing or homegoods anything kind of aesthetic is typically because the item was not pictured as what was ultimately sent. The things that you mentioned retailers are doing on their websites to try to give customers a better sense of a product before they buy. Do you think that that'll work this year that it'll at least help. Keep the number of returns down one. The type of merchandise has changed. It's too much more casual. Wear to start with so that kind of merchandise is kind of. It's easier to fit than you know kind of work. Wear or kind of dress shoes. So that's something that is in favor of apparel merchants in particular to start with and then on top of that if you do put in more photographs more accurate photography you focus on your sizing charts and the accuracy of your sizing charts. You're collecting ratings and reviews from customers that are giving their comments on the size and fit of of the merchandise. All of that is good and it doesn't hurt sales and it doesn't hurt the the accuracy of the information that you're you're providing so i do think that it should help managing returns even though e commerce is grown.

"Places make you feel the way dollar store can with just twenty bucks in your pocket? Any old joke can have themselves a full on shopping spree and over the course of this year many old joe's did exactly that in fact, dollar stores have been one of Twenty Twenty s few retail success stories. The biggest player in this game is dollar general the fast growing chain has more. Than, sixteen thousand stores in the US alone, and now the buck an item brand is going upscale with a new concept called pop shelf pop shelf is deliberately branded differently from its dollar store parent company. The goal is to appeal to more upscale customers namely women from six-figure households. But if that's got you picturing a bargain Bergdorf, you've gone a bit too far items at pop shelf will still be bargain price with most below five dollars each the stores will carry beauty products, homegoods, and pet products among others and.

Amazon Moves Prime Day, Starting the Holiday Shopping Season Early
"Amazon. Is remaking the retail calendar again. Yes. Again, this year Amazon Prime Day will be held on October thirteenth and fourteenth about three months later than it standard July date prime day. In case somehow you didn't know is Amazon's biggest sales event of the year a much hyped discount bonanza for Amazon prime members as soon as Amazon finally announced its rescheduled date target followed suit not surprisingly target will hold its. Own. Deal days at exactly the same time. Walmart followed shortly after it will hold a gigantic sale for the entire week. Many many other sheep retailers are sure to follow because Amazon Prime Day, which by the way is only five years. Old Is an insanely successful manufactured holiday when Amazon held its first Prime Day in July two thousand fifteen other retailers scoffed the idea July typically more of an for retail sales. Why would any retailer waste time and money trying to get consumers to change entrenched behavior? Well clearly the skeptics were wrong. Lee. Peterson is an analyst with retail consultancy wd partners in Columbus. Ohio as Peterson recounts the history of Prime Day in its first year, the world sat back and did nothing but watch and as they did Amazon stunned everyone in the three and a half trillion dollar industry by going absolutely bananas he told us the numbers were other worldly flat out shocking. But for everyone else it was July he said, well, other retailers could hardly sit back and let that happen again at least not without a fight as Peterson says, it's a necessity borne out of the fire of retail combat, but he adds maybe the right word is retail slaughter. So a few years ago target Walmart and others launched their own massive July sales. It had taken almost no time for Amazon, to turn the dead retail days of July into something, very, very different for the retail world. July effectively became the new back to school launch a month earlier than it had always happened and boy has it been a winner for Amazon. Last year was its biggest ever Amazon doesn't release earnings for Prime Day, but the company claims prime members bought one hundred, seventy, five, million items more than twenty eight teams, Black Friday, and cyber Monday combined as they did this year target and Walmart let Amazon lead scheduled their events to surround prime day whenever Amazon wanted it. July past sleepily this year for obvious pandemic reasons. Now, with the announcement of a mid October Prime Day, the calendar is once again shifting perhaps permanently analysts say the event effectively kicks off the holiday shopping season that used to be marked by Black Friday. Remember the frenzy shopping event that follows thanksgiving, but covert is causing an enormous shift in consumer behavior according to market research firm Alex partners. About half of all shoppers plan to start holiday shopping by Halloween at were earlier this year in effect that firm says the traditional definition of the November December holiday shopping season is now meaningless. What all this means for consumers of course, is a confusing and pledge of deals expect an overwhelming number of ads from all corners, hawking products and categories that have soared because the pandemic at leisure loungewear. Outdoor gear electronic streaming and music subscriptions and homegoods. Of course, anything that entertains US and makes us more comfortable at home. Amazon. Specifically is expected to offer discounts on many of its own products like Echo smart speakers and Amazon music and audible subscriptions. Some of those discounts are already available but also be on the lookout for deals on instagram pots, remote vacuum cleaners, apparel, and TV's to compete. Target is pushing discounts on similar categories of products and also at stellar same day service, which the company has excelled at scaling this year as it has for the last couple of years, target is also pushing the message that customers don't have to be members in order to get steals. It costs about one hundred, twenty dollars a year for prime membership, but that surprise million seem happy to pay. This year Amazon prime is expected to exceed one, hundred, forty million members for the first time more than half of all Americans according to research firm Emarketer. The firm also predicts that Amazon. Will generate a record ten billion dollars in sales on prime day up from an estimated seven billion dollars last year. So we'll target and Walmart do well with their prime day look-alikes. Undoubtedly, they will like Amazon they've grown considerably during the pandemic online sales especially of jumped. But can they truly compete with Amazon Kind of says, Lee Peterson. If Prime Day was a one hundred meter dash, she says Amazon will reach first place in record time about twenty yards later, there'll be second-place success. That bad still.

Design Strategies to Rework Your Spaces While Staying Home
"I mean a dive into six different questions to ask yourself in kind of give you tips. Along the way of some things you can implement and just ways to think about your spaces when you are kind of trying to rework them. Amidst the chaos. Okay so the first question I want you to ask yourself about your house is where are you spending most of your time? Is it in your bed. Is it on? Your couch is at the kitchen table. The kitchen bar. Where do you find yourself spending the most time as your home? So let's talk about why. This is the place to start when I did the episode all about like my design process start to finish. We talked about like how you WanNa start in your most used areas like the faces that you are in the most and then you want to focus on creating functionality for the activities that you're doing most in that space so this is a great strategy for design in general because if you have just a little bit of time to focus on your house or you only have a little bit of money to spend the things you do. The most are the areas you want to focus on and work on optimizing those first so in terms of our situation right now where you're spending most of your time once you've identified that place. I want you to ask yourself. Is there something that you could add or subtract from this space to make it function better so just to give you an example? I found myself using the chair in my master bedroom. More than I've ever sat in it ever like I'm there every day and the funny thing about this is it is the chair and what I mean by this is it is the police to pile things when they are in purgatory. Like CLOTHING IS NOT CLEAN. But it's not dirty. Welcome to the chair. It just pile things up in this chair because it's not dirty enough where I'm going to put it in the hamper but it's not clean enough or I'm going to hang up so I'm just GonNa put it on this chair and maybe where it within the next week or so but anyway. After I showed make chaotic house to Allah view on instagram stories then proceeded to actually clean my master bedroom because it was one of the spaces giving me the most anxiety. I found myself in bed watching like youtube fitness videos every day and so I realized like this space was stressing me out and was not a place I could wind down or relax so a cleaner room cannot say the same for all the other areas of the house but once I had it clean and this chair was cleared off. Now I'm finding myself sitting in it all the time like whenever I do editing on instagram stories or a photo or I'm texting people or I'm calling people or face timing to like stay connected. I find myself sitting in this chair because it's by a really pretty window with natural light. It's very comfortable. It's very lounge and since I've started using it I'm realizing like there's some things I could do to make it better like it. Needs a side table needs a lamp. It needs a probably a cosy blanket. So what is your version of this in your house? What's the space you've been using more? Maybe that you didn't expect to be using or maybe that just you're finding yourself there all the time and what is something. You can add whether side table lamp blanket. Whatever it is or subtract you know what's in the way what is there that doesn't need to be there. That's kind of like hindering. The space from being fully functional. What can you add or subtract to make the space work better for you okay? Question number two is what areas of Your House? Feel underused or overlooked. So what areas are you not spending time in or maybe even like avoiding altogether so I want you to like identify that area or maybe multiple areas. And Ask Yourself. Why are you not spending time in the spaces? Maybe they feel in drab. Maybe there a drop zone. That doesn't have a clear function. Or maybe they're just a source of stress like something you just want to close the door on a nor and pretend not there so once you've identified that space and maybe kind of explored. Why you're avoiding it. Let's ask ourselves. How could you transform these spaces to make them work better for you? So both practical function and decor like aesthetics maybe practical means like you need more storage and organization. You need some things to leave the space you need to add shelves or add baskets or find a way to make it functionally work better and then decor obviously we can't just like roam around homegoods in via everything we want so shop. Your House first things first maybe find some pieces. That aren't being used or aren't really in the space. You like them to be and try to use what you have first and then you could also dive into some inexpensive. Diy PROJECTS FOR INFO. I know there's a ton of US. In the home and diy space influencers bloggers that are creating content around projects. That use what you already have at home Encouraging you guys to make it home in dive into projects with what you have but you can also check pinterest for really simple. Diy's that are quick. But really release. Sheikh I know that me and seven of my friends have a Hashtag called one hour. Diy where we really focus on those types of projects. That are just quick. Easy Look Gorgeous. Don't require a lot of materials and are very simple to knock out so dive into some of those for instant. What could you make? And maybe like. Give yourself a creative outlet as you're redoing the space and make it cute. It doesn't have to just be organizing in cleaning and the not so fun stuff. It can be like making it work and making a cute and then there's that sense of pride and accomplishment when you transform the space that was such a source of stress. And now it's like pretty and beautiful and serves a purpose so that's kind of like strategy number two is find those areas that are underused overlooked in focus on making them work for you. Okay question number three to ask yourself about your spaces. Is where is clutter piling up so wherever there is areas? That are clearly. Just kind of accumulating clutter as the staying at home situation has gone on those areas. Likely need a good purge likely need things to obviously be put away organized but probably you need to get rid of stuff. If stuff is just accumulating in one certain spot maybe it's a situation of too much stuff and maybe you just need to make that space function better so my practical tip for this is to prep and Organiz your donations. Even if you can't drop them off now. Some donation based organizations are still accepting donations But some aren't because they've been forced to close required to close so I know goodwill at least has goodwill dot org slash locator and you can find your closest store in Colorado and to see if they're accepting drop-offs I think some of them are doing like contactless drop-offs. Some of them were totally closed. So make sure you like call a header plan ahead but even if you can't drop stuff off even if you're really working on staying home in your in an area that's been hit really hard you can still prep an organiser donations and put them in a pile in your where all you have to do is put those boxes in your car and take them. If you're like me. You might have been doing this already as you prepare your donations like I'm going to donate this box to goodwill I wanNA drive around with it in the back of my car for four months so if that's a habit than this maybe isn't even new to you that you can't or won't donate right away but identify those areas where they seem to be more cluttered than usual and seems to be like your drop zones you're hot zones for clutter to just accumulate number. Four is what are you struggling to keep clean so whether this means like messy mess doing dishes or areas where you're struggling to kind of sort through that stuff. These areas need systems for moving things along in organization so often when you're struggling to keep something clean it's because you haven't really developed a sustainable process that fits in your lifestyle where you can quickly and easily get through these areas of mess. I know we talked a lot about this with becky. The Clean Mama on episodes like twenty seven twenty eight just about like the approach. Where if you have a process that you can quickly and easily chip away at stuff every day. It's going to make it a lot easier to keep things clean versus letting things pile up so if there's areas that you're struggling to keep clean your strategy is that you're going to rethink how your system works for cleaning this area. Maybe you need to streamline it maybe you need to. I don't know just make things easier. Make your cleaning supplies. More accessible add additional organization. So it's very clear where things go versus just Having to organize on the fly and try to make it make sense so between decluttering things and then kind of rethinking your process that fits in your life. This can really help you get on

"homegoods" Discussed on Young House Love Has A Podcast
"Because their whole thing's kind of surplus stores like extra things. So there's not like consistent inventory from one store to the next. It's like going in there and seeing what you find. But now that homegoods in TJ max has an online store I found sheets that I wanted on one bed at the duplex. But you know, I have two of everything the duplex. So sometimes I'm switching the sheets and doing saying fun. And sometimes I'm switching something like the way I want the sheets to be the same. I found sheets loved a win online as able to find the exact same sheets, which never used to be an option. So the TJ Maxx homegoods site is what I'm digging, and I'm specifically digging a lot of betting items we bought for the duplex a link them in the show notes because it's a visual thing. And it doesn't make much sense to play rattle them off here. But they have great pillows sheets as quilts stuff like that. But I wanna point out. It's not a perfect system because that same thing you're describing the sheets I tried to duplicate with a quilt. We wanted to find in store we could only find it in a full or Queen and we needed a twin size one. And so I went to search for it on the homegoods website. And it's not there. So it's not a like complete inventory of every possible thing you could find in homegoods. But there certainly some things on there. So it is a helpful like spot check. If you need something, right? It's like a good backup method. It won't be one hundred percent successful every time, but it's not bad. And I love that. It's actually they're also I get lots of questions about where I get all my baskets in the attic a lot of the baskets in the attic, we're homegoods. She gets them from the attic guys. They would be like. Resale homegoods to it's in the attic. My new store that I'm opening open an online shop, I think they do. Well, what I'm digging this week is a smart plug. I know of Doug, smart blogs before, but this is an outdoor smart plug, and I've been looking for one because I wanted to plug in our outdoor patio lights to a smart plug. So that when we wanted to turn them on. We didn't have to go out there and like physically plug them in and out. I could actually turn them on from inside using my voice, no less because I can just use our Amazon echo to say, you know, who turn on the lights, and there they go. So I will link it in the show notes. I just grabbed it on Amazon. It was not very expensive. But I don't remember the specific name of it. But we're gonna get another one because we're going to do the same thing at the beach house with the outdoor patio lights there. And I also wanted to use this platform, I'm talking about smart devices to clarify one thing because I've got some questions for people about why do I prefer smart devices over just timers or something to control my lights like what do you have against timers? They're cheap. And easy use them with my Christmas lights. Why does everything have to be smart that was set a little bit more forcefully? I remember that question. But I was I'm not against timers. And I think I talked about this podcast. I realize that some things make more sense on sort of an automated timer we have somewhere outdoor lights on dust to dawn timer. So they just go on or off as the sun sets or rises. I don't have to do anything extra and what about Christmas lights in the front? Timers timers the answer. Is we use timers? Yes..
Everything You Need to Know About Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals
"Get cheaper closer to Christmas.

But Palmer says sometimes you have to be really careful because the stores will try to sell you a stripped down version of that TV's made specially for the black Friday offer. So you gotta know that you're getting exactly what you want. When you're shopping today is black Friday shopping like every other kind of shopping meaning that increasing numbers of people.

China, US and Bloomberg discussed on Politics, Policy, Power and Law
"Very interesting wrinkle on. The trade wars the art world is growing anxious about President Trump's trade war with China because the administration's proposed list of two hundred billion dollars in additional goods that could be targeted for, duties, includes paintings, sculpture collages, ceramics historical collectibles along with antiques older than a hundred. Years from China critics of the tariff plan say it will discourage private collectors and dealers from acquiring Chinese art. And cultural items and because museums, rely on donations they end the viewing. Public. Will suffer wow for, more on this we're joined by Sarah, McGregor Bloomberg news economic. Policy team leader she's in our Bloomberg ninety nine one. Studios in Washington I, guess the team really dug down into, this list to come. Up with this particular nugget tell us about it Sarah Absolutely this is you know as we sort, of poor through these lists there's sort of come out. Quite quickly you know often when you're you're, covering, something like this you're just looking for some of the big ticket items but as, we start to pour through these listen even here from the companies and the people who. Will be, affected by these, tariffs we start to really see how wide net the Trump administration has cast on Chinese imports you know in some respects I think there's some frustration with items and. Art is a perfect example of it because people are asking what is have to do with what is a trade war that was started by the Trump administration's frustration with, China's trading practices with stealing intellectual property and forcing these technology? Transfers for companies who want to get a foothold into China what what do art dealers have have to do with. This and also because they're such small trade art is this really going to reduce the deficit the trade deficit with? China so why I think the big question is why would art be caught up in the. Middle of this trade. War So a lot. Of the people that you guys spoke to in the article some. Of them, said that, this really wasn't going to hurt them other, people seem to think and institutions that. It was, going to hurt them but it seems like, it's a long term hurt rather than an immediate absolutely. China is the world's number two art market, so, it sells about twenty one percent of the sales by value worldwide from China the. US imports some of that and last year was about two hundred million dollars give or. Take so, again we're not, talking about huge numbers but I think the idea is that you know it's the super wealthy can afford to pay a little bit more for China's art but it's. These sort of me know mid to lower level art purchasers who are really just passionate about art and make up a large part of the market that won't be able. To afford especially if there's a twenty five percent tariff on? Art to to to buy that and on, the other side of it Chinese artists of course having your work having? An exhibit? In the US is a really big deal get you a lot of exposure and that's going to become Lot, harder to do, if these tariffs are put into place is there any dollar, value the amount of art that, the US imports from China So last year it was about two hundred million dollars, give or take, according to, some census data that. We collected and of course in the in the grand grain trade scheme of, of it all I think. That's you know that's, not a lot we, imported the US imported about five hundred billion dollars worth of Chinese goods thus cheer in, in total but again as a as I said earlier I think it really just highlights you. Might be a small amount for the US economy but it's a big, deal for a group of people who who are part of that scene and I think that these tariffs that really just throws up. The question why is art being being punished by these, tariffs that really the rationale for them is is miles apart from the art scene there there's going to be hearings in DC in late August and with people able to come in and give their say about the tariffs. On different kinds of goods are people, from the art world going, to show up people from the art world's have submitted Comments online which Those are just pouring in right now and we probably can expect there's going to be four. Days of hearings so if the art world wants to have, their voice heard they'll definitely have that opportunity and you bring up a really good point that this two hundred billion dollar list is it's an initial. List right now so we've seen, with previous rounds the, thirty four billion even the sixteen billion announced this week that. Will take effect August twenty third items. Had been, removed you know the the US TR has told us that they listen to concerns, from from people including, in this case, the art world, and they'll, on you know they definitely take, those into, account but, really you know they'll have to fill a bucket and once you get up to, two hundred billion if you put all that everything into place that'll be about half of US the US deficit last year, with with China it's the. Full two fifty if these two, hundred take effect things have to go in and a lot of them might be items that. Don't make sense so I think really it just exemplifies the fact that a lot of industries might be feeling the bite from this that, feel Far removed from this whole trade war and I'm gonna throw an, interesting little insight into this. Whole thing on Chinese art that, the US imports sure there are big expensive pieces that get sold at Sotheby's and that kind. Of thing at auction but but believe it or not when you go into some of these off price homegoods places you know Home home furnishings retailers sometimes the art and those places come, from, China and they're kind of. Made in assembly lines over there and you probably, didn't know, that Sarah Yeah call up call up the folks at TJ Maxx and acts ask them where they get all. Their all the art they sell them I asked. One time I said this stuff is beautiful where did. Come from China We. Got we, got a beautiful landscape, there with that all right Sarah McGregor,
