3 Easy Ways to Get the Most From Your Money When Shopping!

We always want to get the most for our money. Here are some tips to help!

  • Timing purchases is one of the easiest ways to take advantage of sales. End of the season and after the holidays are great times to find a deal on big-ticket items. More specific advice for consumers can be found through media outlets such ConsumerReports.org and Today.com.
  • Signing up for email alerts from your favorite brands is another way to save. Sales of 25 to 40 percent are common on clothing and accessories.
  • Finally, shopping stores that support causes that are meaningful to you is another way to get the most from your dollar. Amazon’s "Smile" program is an example of how easy it can be to donate. You simply navigate to that part of the site, complete the purchase and they send a portion of it to the charity of your choice.

Great ideas for saving money, Pamela Allen! One of my favorites is to sign up for my favorite stores' rewards programs. I am constantly amazed by how many points I can rack up (because I'm buying for the entire household), and then how much those points can save me in actual cash!
