Tips for Consumers
Tips for making the most of your money when buying products and services from others.
Should You Join a Rewards Program?
Many companies are now collecting reward points on their websites. You many have wondered if it's worth the time and effort to join these programs.
Saving Money on Home Appliances
This is a guide about saving money on home appliances. The retail price of new appliances can be more than you can afford. Often times there are slightly damaged or used appliances that will be just what you need.
Organizing Shopping Rewards
As part of setting goals for this year, next on my list is to tackle getting my rewards and rewards cards in some kind of shape. I don't like spending money and I sure hate missing opportunities for getting something free.
Finding Frugal Accessories
I love jewelry, shoes and purses. What women doesn't? I just can't afford all that my eyes can see. I purchase all my personal accessories from thrift shops and garage sales. I also hunt the sales and clearance racks. Each piece is clean before wearing it. Here is a breakdown.
This is a guide about using coupons. Coupons come at us from a variety of sources; the mailbox, newspapers and magazines, store circulars and receipts, on products and even in our email inbox. Here are ways to use them effectively to save money.
Grocery Store Strategies
I live by three different grocery stores so I check the front and back of each flyer every week. That is where they list their hook sales, sometimes incredibly good deals to attract you in to their store. I make a list of the three stores and their best deals for items I would be interested in.
Shop after Seasonal Holidays for Big Savings
If you shop after Seasonal Holidays like Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. you can save at least 50-75%, if you are lucky some stores even offer up to 90% off.
Get a Receipt when Shopping
Some stores I go to ask if I want a receipt - the environmentally friendly method would be to say "no", however the thrifty part of me says "yes". I always get a receipt.
Recording a Voice Mail Greeting on Magic Jack
Using a computer phone service may require a different way of adding a personal greeting. This is a guide about recording a voice mail greeting on magic jack.
Understand Price Adjustment Policies
I recommend anyone who shops in-store or online to read through the stores' policies, especially focusing on price adjustments. By knowing my store's price adjustment policy and following my mattress purchase, I was able to receive a price adjustment refund of $131.76!
Save Time and Money with a Shopping List
When I write a shopping list, I know exactly what I need to purchase and get out of the store so I will not overspend or purchase unnecessary splurge items. I will also save time by having a list in-front of me when I shop.
Score Deals at Store Closing
It's sad to see so many big stores closing. I don't often visit store closings because I always thought the prices are expensive, but actually the prices are reasonable and they will only get cheaper toward the end of the closing date.
Do Rechargeable Batteries Save You Money?
Does anyone know if rechargeable batteries really save you money when you have to pay for the electricity to recharge them?
Drawing on Clothes with Permanent Markers
I have pair of Stone jeans and I wanted to color one with a drawing. If I use permanent markers would it stay on the pants and not fade?
Using Mexican Pottery
I went to the Del Larosa region and shopped at a pottery shop called JMB. They said their cookware and coffee mugs, etc are lead free (although their website says they are below the acceptable standards).
Are My Lenses Made of Glass or Plastic?
How can you tell if your eye glass lenses are plastic or glass?
Saving on American Girl or Similar Dolls
I would like to know of anyways to save money for a $87 American Girl doll. I am 11 years old and am kinda out growing 'baby dolls' so my Mom suggested 'girl dolls'. If you know any other 18 inch doll brands or similar sizes, please post back!
Reusing Wornout Capri Pants
I have a pair of black linen capri pants that tore across the rear yesterday. This is the second tear in these pants, and the linen just seems very worn, so I don't think they're worth patching again.
