A few tips for finding deals:
- Read the comments on blogs and Facebook pages. Other shoppers are amazing at finding deals.
- Keep an eye out in the store. Look at any tags in the store with special promos that may not be advertised.
- Sign up for your store’s emails. They often send special promos and offers.
A few tips for knowing if it’s a good deal or not.
- Just because something is on sale doesn’t mean it’s a good deal.
- Just because we have a coupon doesn’t mean it’s a good deal.
- Know the price it’s worth to YOU. I like Cheerios- they are ok. They are not worth $2.50 a box to me. They are worth 50¢ a box- MAX. There are too many choices and too many brands for me to pay more than that for little circles of cereal. On the other hand- I LOVE A.1. Steak Sauce. No other steak sauce is allowed in my house. So I will pay $2.50-$3 a bottle if I have to (and I haven’t had to in a long long time). I look for items to hit my “stock up price” and then it’s a good deal. You can find my stock up prices here. (NOTE: this list will be updated in the next few weeks-month. But it’s a great starting point) What is a good deal to me may not be one to you and vice versa.
