PHOENIX -- Happy Memorial Day! It’s a great day for shopping. Thanks so much for tuning into Good Morning Arizona today, if you didn't be sure to watch the video. I hope you’ll “like” Alicia’s Deals on Facebook where I’ll help you live life better for less every single day.

Check out some of my favorite deals.

There are great Memorial Day deals at Kohl’s and right now you can head over here to use TWO $10 off codes (MEMORIES and HONOR10) together when you spend $35 or more, just apply both promo codes at checkout. Keep in mind that at Kohl’s you can use any two promo codes and you’ll get $10 Kohl’s cash for every $50 you spend. Code SAVE20 will get you 20 percent off your purchase if you are buying a bigger ticket item (use that along with one $10 off code).

If you’re shopping for appliances, Lowe’s has many on sale for 10 to 30 percent off. You can get a highly rated Roeper washing machine for $299.70, usually $449.

If you feel like taking on a project, you can take $5 off gallons and $20 off 5-gallon buckets of Behr paint today. Check out this Consumer Reports article that shows Behr paint outdid all of the more expensive brands. An extra discount makes for an even better deal (and won’t it be great to have a newly painted room?)!

If you need new furniture, there are lots of Memorial Day sales going on. Head to Living Spaces where you can pick up a 5-piece counter dining set for $195 or a sofa for $295.

Keep in mind that you have negotiation power. Spencer’s TV and appliance guarantees the lowest price. If you know how much an item is at another store, get them to beat it. They’ll even beat Costco and Sam’s Club.

Deals just for military and veterans:

Veterans and military get a free basic wash at Danny’s Family car wash today with ID.

Albertsons is giving Military and veterans 10 percent off through Tuesday.

Lowe’s is offering military and veterans 10 percent off today. You can get an even better deal on that washing machine,

The Melting Pots of Phoenix are offering military a special 3-course meal for just $29.95. Call to make reservations and for more information.

Wallet Watcher Alicia Markham has one goal -- to help you live life better for less.

"I only post deals I truly love and would buy or participate in myself," she says.

A stay-at-home mom of two, Markham describes herself as frugal and says she is passionate about saving money. She wants to help you hang on to your hard-earned dollars, too.

"I think it's so important to save without sacrificing your quality of life," she says.

Markham's blog won Phoenix Magazine's Best of the Valley recognition in 2011, 2012, and 2013, and Arizona Foothills Magazine Best of Our Valley Recognition in 2014.

If there's a deal to be had, Markham will find it and share it with you.
