Reforming glory thief, eternally in need of perspective, and occasionally a roller rink.

I’m Alison, the head bargain hunter in these parts. I’ve lived in Richmond most of my life, currently in the West End with my husband and two sons, whom I homeschool. Beyond bargains, my favorite activities are reading, taking photos, and exploring Richmond. Ultimately, I desire to live a life that reflects the grace God has given me through his Son and become conformed to his image!

I started blogging on Richmond Bargains in June 2008 because I a) loved sharing deals and b) was frustrated by a lack of resources connecting residents with LOCAL money-saving information. I’m all about finding simple ways to do the things we enjoy (eating, shopping, playing, LIVING) while spending less!

I value your money AND your time. I try to weed through events and deals to share the very best with you!


The easiest way to keep up with all the terrific Richmond deals is to subscribe to updates. You can choose between receiving email updates, RSS feed, “Liking” on Facebook, or following on Twitter.


I always appreciate help from wonderful area readers with the scoop on store opening sales, store closing sales, store special sales, store clearance sales, restaurant specials … pretty much any kind of sale or deal in the metro area. I also try to spotlight free (or <$5) events around town. I'd love to hear from you - If you’ve got the bargain skinny, please email me at richmondbargains at gmail dot com.
