There are a number of wholesale clothing and jewelry web sites (ie: wholesalefashionsquare dot com; cheapwholesalejewelry dot com) which are open to the public and don't require minimal ordering. I always shop there and get multiple items for the same price as one anywhere else. Great for holiday purchasing. Save your dollars!!!

Lillea said...

If the heels on your shoes or boots are worn down, you may be able to have them reheeled at a shoe repair shop for far less than buying a new pair of shoes.

I kept my favorite pair of boots going for more than 6 years that way, reheeling once every 2 years or so.

Always shop clearance items first, you'd be surprised at the mark downs on some of these items!

I stock up on sales. I have noticed that the same things ususally go on sale every couple of months. I buy enough to last until the next sale.

BethElderton said...

A good money saving tip: I read a study a few years ago (sorry, I wish I remembered the source) which revealed that the more often you go to the store, the more you spend. The frugal approach would be to do larger shopping trips filling the freezer and pantry, then stay out of the stores for a while.

To save money on gifts, I shop all year long, keeping an eye out for sales. I also get a lot of gifts on Amazon using gift cards I earned through Swagbucks and always make sure to spend over $25 to take advantage of free shipping.

Danielle said...

Reuse whatever you can. Stop buying paper napkins and invest in some cloth ones or better yet, find an old Oxford shirt or flannel sheet and cut that up to use as napkins.

bukaeyes said...

My money saving tip is to think before you make a purchase. Think to yourself is this really something I need- are there cheaper yet effective alternatives? Also- only allow yourself a certain amount of spending money. When I go grocery shopping I bring a certain amount and thats what I have so I have to focus on how much I am spending.
bukaeyes@aol.com

Sarah S said...

One thing that I do is comparison shop, check the local ads for the best deal.

Susan Said What?! said...

I keep holiday spending to a minimum by creating a list with exactly how much I can spend per person. Then I write down gift ideas, check prices online and keep a written tally. Definitely helps with those impulse buys!

Rusti Michael said...

I try to use coupons with sale items to get the biggest bang for my buck. I also like to buy in bulk.

Kim said...

I never go anywhere or buy anything with checking for coupons first - a quick check online before you walk out the door can save a lot of money! Thanks. irishluck1114@yahoo.com

pamelarm said...

I always compare online sites for the present I want to buy; you can usually find it on sale somewhere

When shopping online, find the best price and then Google the site's name plus "coupon." Sometimes you can find coupon codes in really obscure places or on small blogs.

Never pay full price for foods. Shop the sales and then stock up. Even better if you use a coupon with a sale item.

My biggest money-saver is just to buy ahead when things are on sale, and wait for things to go on sale before you stock up.

When shopping for goceries take a look at the lower shelves. Generally speaking, higher priced items are placed on shelves eye-level and higher, while cheaper (and usually generic) items are placed on the lowest shelves.

My best money saving tip: Don't buy something just because it's cheap! It may be a great deal, but if you don't need it (or sometimes want it) it's a waste of money.

Melissa Shirley said...

To save money at home I "Cherry-pick" when I go shopping. Wish means I only shop for the sale items from that particular grocery store and I always bring coupons. Couponing is great. My friends and I often often swap coupons if we see one that the other person can use.

Peter Schott said...

Money-saving? Don't try to buy just for the sake of buying. Try to give gifts that actually mean something for the person who is receiving the gift. I remember far too many trinkets I've received that are just wasteful. I'd rather someone had made a donation to a great charity than just buy me something silly that I might use once and then put away to gather dust.

My money saving tip is to use your money wisely. I never buy anything that my family doesn't actually need. If it's a product that's free or really cheap - what's the point? If I won't use it - I don't need it cluttering up my house. I'll leave the coupons next to the product or hand them off to someone who I see buying it.

I agree with another reader who said "don't go shopping." If you "see" something that is a good deal you want to buy it, even though you wouldn't have wanted it if you didn't see it. Think of the children in developing countries you can sponsor for 40 dollars a month- that will help you to save money!

One money saving tip is to take advantage of coupons. You can find them on the Intenet, in magazines and in newspapers. If you are diligent about using coupons, you can save a lot of money. One secret is to get a coupon organizer. After you make your grocery list, go through the coupons in your organizer to see if there are any you can use.

Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity. ~Pauline

Here is a little bit of a money saving tip. When you go to put gas in your car do it in the morning. As the day goes by and the ground warms up the gas expands therefore you are getting more fumes than actual gas in the afternoon. Pump your gas in the early morning to get more gas which will last longer and save you a little money.
