Shopping for your family is necessary week after week. Instead of just buying the first thing that you come across, take time to do your research and use your technology devices to help you save money.
Here are some tips to help subtract from your family’s total spending:
Tip #1 – Avoid One-Stop Shopping:
Space out your buying at various stores for greater savings. In addition, make it easy by keeping your shopping list with you at all times and especially when you are running errands just in case you might spot a great deal.
Tip #2 – Do Your Research:
For the best deal spotting, browse online first to get a sense of what prices various competitors are offering. Remember, it’s always best to have a plan before going shopping.
Tip #3 – Keep Your Smartphone Handy:
You can try a free deal-hunting app to make things a little easier. Before you shop, browse store flyers using Retale or check out Favado to search by item (Android, iOS).
Tip #4 – Look for Discounted Gift Cards:
You can use discounted gift cards for those specific retailers at up to 35% off face value.
Tip #5 – Shop Secondhand via Online:
Buying clothes at a discount is easier than ever with thrifting websites. Donated items on these sites are inspected by hand to ensure they are free from stains, fading and holes. Searches can be filtered by brand, size and price to make the process painless and fun.
So, the next time you need to shop for the family, refer back to these tips in order to subtract from your family’s total spending.
