I hate paying full price for things, so I looks for good deals before I spend money.
One of the strategies I use to save money is stay out of the stores. It works pretty well, but there are times when you just have to buy things. Things like groceries, toiletries, and toilet paper. You can’t just stop buying these things.
So on these things I go searching for deals. There are tons of great deals to be found on the internet. And there are tons of message boards, blogs, and coupon sites to help you find the deals. I’ll share some of my favorites.
Money Saving Mom. Crystal, the money saving mom, always posts the great deals at Walgreens and CVS. We don’t have a CVS where I live, unfortunately, but I check out the Walgreens deals that Crystal posts every week.
Fishing for Deals. I have to be careful about spending time on the Fishing for Deals forums. If I spend too much time there, it’s easy to spend money on things I don’t need. That being said, the forums are a great place to find deals, whether you’re looking for online deals, in-store deals, coupon deals….anything. And if you don’t see the deal you’re looking for, there’s even a forum where you can ask the “fishies” to see if they can find one for you! You have to sign up to see most of the forums, but it’s free and worth the time, in my opinion.
Now you know where I go to find great prices on the things that I need. Where do you go? Please share!
