Trish Maes sent me a great on-line shopping tip that I actually shared with you all about a year or so ago, but now that there are so many new subscribers I realized I should probably mention it again! For any of you who order on-line, don't push that submit button yet! Before you do, bring up a second Internet window, go to your favorite search engine (I love
www.google.com) and type "promotion code" and the name of the on-line store you want to shop at. There will usually be some kind of special sale or discount that is going on and you can save big bucks. If the store offers free shipping, then it doesn't even make sense to drive to the actual store to buy the item, especially now that gas is so expensive! Hey, your time is
valuable too. :)
I recently discovered a couple of helpful Internet sites where you can save
some more moola. Check out www.100bigcoupons.com and
Yesterday I talked with the owner of a local A&P store who told me where she shops to buy all that soda and junkfood for her convenience store....would
you believe Costco?! She says Costco & Sam's have lower prices on those
items than what she would even pay from the product vendors!
