Welcome to October! We used the month of September to get ourselves, our families, and our homes more organized (or at least hopefully you are now inspired to get started!) with our “How to Organize Your Life” series. This month I would like to focus on how we can all save money just by shopping smarter! Yes- you can still buy all of the same brands you love, you can still feed your family healthy, organic meals- but you can do all of this by spending less money- if you just change the way you shop.
In this new series I will be sharing my tips on how to save $ and shop smarter by:
Save Money and Shop Smarter at the Grocery Store
How should you plan for a trip to the store? How do you know when something is a “good deal”? How much time should you be spending clipping coupons or gathering coupons online? What is a stockpile and how does that help you save money?
Save Money and Shop Smarter at the Drugstore
Are drug stores really a place where you can save money, or are they more expensive that a grocery store or mass retailer like WalMart? What are Extrabux and how can they save you money? How do you know if something is a “good deal”? How do you “roll a deal”?
Save Money and Shop Smarter at Target
Do you refer to Target the “$100 store” (rather than the dollar store) because you run in there for one thing and end up dropping more than $100 each time? It’s time to learn how to shop smarter at Target!
Save Money and Shop Smarter Online
Should you take advantage of Groupons and other deal sites? How do you find online coupons, and what are shopping rebates? And how do you make sure that you are getting a “good deal”?
More Ways to Save Money and Shop Smarter
We will cover shopping apps (which ones should you really use?), how to save money at the beauty salon, pizza shop and more!
