Frugal is as frugal does.
Are you getting ready to pull the trigger on that dress you’ve been eyeing on Bluefly? Planning to order photos on Snapfish? Need to buy necessities at drugstore.com? Before you click “purchase”, make sure your items are saved in your shopping cart and look around online for discount coupons. These coupons knock off anywhere from a little bit to a lot from your purchase prices with deals that include free shipping, 10% off, $5 off and the like. Never buy anything online without looking for a coupon first. Simply google “[item] coupon” and websites like CouponCabin.com, Retailmenot.com, momsview.com, couponmountain.com, dealtaker.com, and gogoshopper.com will pop up – some of these sites feature over more than 1,000 online retailers. The savings are definitely worth the extra 5 or 10 minutes that it takes to locate the coupon. While not all of the coupons you’ll find are valid, if you persevere and are shopping at a name brand retailer – Bloomingdales, Target, Walmart, Neiman Marcus, JCrew, Saks, Victoria’s Secret,etc – you will find a coupon! Take a moment to shop around and guarantee yourself some savings.
And you thought clipping coupons was something your Grandmother did – get with the times!
