Don’t you just feel great when you walk into a mall store and all the sales clerks are welcoming and smiling at you? You feel like everyone is so nice and they all see you as the truly great person that you are….Don’t be fooled! They hear that jingle in your pockets and they want to put it in theirs. Here are some tips on how to hold onto your hard earned money.
100- The less you go out, the less you’ll spend. Think about where you’re going to spend your day and what will likely happen. Put all your loose change and extra dollars in a cookie jar and add a wish list in there too.
Savings opportunities are always available and it is up to us to seek them out. Be proactive in your spending and consider all options before making a purchase.
Tips for More Savings:
A quick and easy way to add to your finances is to search for rebates and discounts. I never buy anything unless it’s 50% off the sale price. It’s easily accomplished by sticking to the clearance section of most websites. Sites like Ebates permit me to get cash back on my purchase, view updated discount codes and I can also usually get free shipping. Ebates works hand in hand with merchants and gives you a percentage of cash back from your purchase. Cash back ranges between 1%-10%. You get $10.00 instantly for signing up and it’s an invaluable tool.
If you live in a major city and have access to Amazon food delivery service, it’s worth the effort to do a cost analysis. Things to consider: gas, your time and purchase cost (which all add up). With AmazonFresh food delivery, you can skip the physical shopping hassle, avoid the lines and save money by not being tempted by impulse buying. Amazon Guarantees delivery within 2 hours and that’s much faster than other services or pick up options. You will be less tempted shopping through your computer screen, and you can ensure healthful options for your family. With Amazon’s recent acquisition of Whole Foods, I foresee even more healthy options and product availability. AmazonFresh‘s monthly fee is now $14.99 for unlimited deliveries as a standalone, and only $10.99/ month with Prime. With Prime, you get 100% free 2 day delivery service on all other products, free streaming services, and unlimited books to download. If you aren’t already a Prime or AmazonFresh member it can add seriously valuable time back into your life.
