Top 7 Ways to Save While You Are Shopping

Shopping can be a fun experience, but it can also be costly whether we are shopping for groceries, household items or new articles of clothing to supplement our wardrobes. Everyone loves a good bargain or a way to save money on necessities and desirables, but finding ways to save can sometimes be a challenge.

Depending on what you are shopping for, there are several ways you can still buy exactly what you want without putting a huge dent in your wallet. Here are some tips for shopping smart and saving money at the same time:

  1. Use coupons as much as possible. You can get coupons from flyers, newspapers, online coupon websites, and even by writing to a manufacturer and requesting them.
  2. Comparison shop before making a purchase, especially for more costly items.
  3. Buy in bulk when shopping for groceries and household supplies. By purchasing larger quantities of foods that have a long shelf life or household items that are non-perishable, you can get a huge savings over purchasing only what you need on a short-term basis.
  4. For furniture, clothing and other home accessories, decor or wardrobe items, check out thrift stores, flea markets and yard sales.
  5. Shop for holiday-related items after the holiday has passed, when you can often get discounts of up to 80% off the regular prices.
  6. As with holiday items, shop for seasonal products in the same fashion – after the season has ended. Summer clothing is frequently on sale in the fall and winter, and winter attire is on sale in spring and summer.
  7. Always ask about special offers, promotional sales, clearance items, scratch-and-dent products, and other things that may be sold for less than the normal retail price for a variety of reasons.

By being a smart shopper, you are also being a thrifty one and the difference can and will be measured in dollars in your pocket!
