La Fiesta is very clean and well organized. I've never seen this particular location messy or dirty.
La Fiesta is very old-fashioned looking in a good way. It also reminds me of a Barbie grocery store because everything is in its place.
I like that La Fiesta carries some organic and soy milks and it also carries some items from Amy's brand organic foods.
La Fiesta's cashiers are very nice and helpful and the check cashing place has never given me a hassle.
Good Samaritan Thrift Store is very well organized. In particular, the magazines, records, and comics are organized by title and usually by month/year. The magazine wall looks like that of a retail store.
This thrift store has pricey clothing at times. And they are guilty of selling over priced clothing with permanent sweat stains on it, ring around the collar that will not come off, and yellowing on white garments.
I do like that Good Samaritan offers a box of single earrings. I don't know of many other thrift stores that do this. At a quarter each, these come in handy for those of us with a flamboyant style and those of us into craft projects.The jewelry as a whole is nicely set up aswell.
If you look long enough, you can find some good deals at this thrift store but you really have to look. Bring a friend a few ideas in mind of what you're looking for.
Community Thrift Store can get very pricey sometimes. However, Community Thrift Store has a great selection of clothing. They have the clothing set up in rows with two bars (an upper and lower) in each row.
The cashiers are, for the most part, very nice and happy to open the glass case for you if so inclined to view an item under glass.
This store is good for furniture deals, I've found some good books there for a dollar (David Sedaris' "Me Talk Pretty One Day"), I found a real Chanel bag there with a serial number for $1.99, and though the toy section can get pretty messy and unkempt, they have some toys for 45 cents.
This thrift store has always been very well air conditioned.
Texas Thrift Store can be a bit pricey at times, especially formal wear and sometimes the clothing seems wrongly priced. Sometimes you'll find stone-washed denim jeans with a pleated front and a skinny ankle for $6.99, like the kind A.C. Slater wears on Saved By the Bell. That's just odd.
But you should wait until they have these periodic sales that are amazing. Every month, they have a 50% off everything sale. This isn't just for clothes, it applies to everything in the store. I'm not sure if furniture applies.
The changing rooms aren't always nice. But the worst is the men's dressing room. There is only one, there is no light inside the tiny room, and there is no mirror inside of it either. What's the use if you can't see yourself in what you decided to try on?
Whole Foods is a very attractive store with beautiful lighting and beautiful, pure foods.
My boyfriend only eats organic and I'm making the transition so we frequent Whole Foods quite often.
The prices at Whole Foods are sometimes astronomical. For an Amy's organic Spinach Pizza, they want about $6.00. I found the same pizza at Wal-Mart, La Fiesta, and the Lackland Commissary for about $4.00.
Cascadian Farms organic Granola Cereal sells for almost $5.00. You can get the same cereal at Target and Wal-Mart for between $2.39-$2.59.
Don't go for your organic milk either. They are highly overpriced.
Get your basics that are readily available at commercial grocery stores and get what you can't find anywhere else at Whole Foods.
Whole Foods is the only supplier of this amazing cream that my boyfriend uses. Its called Egyptian Magic and can be used on the body and face as well as to aid burns, scars, inflammations, and such. It is so pure you can eat it and its made with Royal Jelly. It sells for $29.99 but that's the price anywhere online.
The $1.99 store has very little clothing that's acutally $1.99. The selection of $1.99 clothing is very small, extremely outdated, and sometimes, even soiled.
The store is nicely organized but it is very cramped. The changing room is very small and there is only one.
Most clothes are $3.99 and up.
I got jipped at the $1.99 store. The woman who owns the store and works the register was talking on the phone to her daughter for the whole transaction. She rang me up twice and I complained. She seemed very annoyed. She rang it up again and gave me the wrong change. Oops, that was a ten, not a one. After that mistake was cleared up, I looked at my receipt in the car and found that she overcharged me again. I bought five pieces of clothing and she charged me full price for a shirt that clearly had a $1.99 price tag on it.
Pass on this store. Instead, if you're looking for truly cheap clothing but you don't mind sorting through potentially soiled clothing, try the Pleasanton Goodwill where all clothing is actually 99 cents.
Mary Kay Cosmetics are highly overpriced and not well worth your hard earned money.
Mary Kay Cosmetics offers the same colors you can find in a dollar store, a grocery store, and a department store.
Just because cosmetics are high priced, doesn't mean they are of greater quality.
Ontop of that, the packaging is simply not very attractive or modern.
I don't very much like Sally's Beauty Supply. Each time I've gone, I've been looked at and followed as if I'm stealing.
Big purses are very in style and sometimes I don't feel like doing my makeup so I'll wear sunglasses. This makes the Sally's staff follow and watch me and I don't like this. Its very uncomfortable and very offensive.
Ontop of that, Sally's has a very limited selection in hair colors and in hair extensions. I am in the process of dying my hair platinum and Sally's had no platinum color. The selection of hair extensions is very limited. The colors seem to be only of a darker color.
Sea World is a fun place to take a first date or if you feel like taking a younger member of your family or extended family out for a treat.
I like the fact that Sea World offers a wide range of rides from kiddie rides to scary rollercoasters. I personally love the Great White rollercoaster.
I'm not a fan of extremely scary rollercoasters that take your stomach and flash your life before your eyes. The Great White just makes you feel free, as the wind hits your skin at varying speeds and altitudes.
The funnel cakes at Sea World are to die for.
Sea World is fun for kids, teens, and adults of all ages. The only drawback is the Summer Texas sun hitting you at every angle. So be prepared. You may want to bring an umbrella.
A gentelman friend of mine brings an umbrella wherever he goes on sunny days and though he may get some funny looks, he's definitely not burning from the scorching Summer sun. Pack an umbrella and hydrate yourself often. Most importantly, enjoy yourself!
Western Beverages is a very reputable company. Each time I've gone to this store, I've always been warmly greeted and asked if I need any help. I like that they have a strict rule of ID-ing everyone. This is very important as too many times, the underaged have shown up in fatal car wrecks on the local news.
Good selection of alcohol from a variety of brands, strengths, and price ranges.
