Tips for Consumers
Tips for making the most of your money when buying products and services from others.
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.
When Expiration Dates Matter
Before we hit the beach, I spent ten minutes covering a wriggling and impatient boy with SPF 50 sunscreen. To my dismay, I didn't put a pale skinned youngster to bed that night.
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.
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.
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.
Use Browser Extensions to Save Money Online
I have been using free extensions on my Chrome web browser when I shop online to save HUGE bucks. You simply add them to your Chrome browser then browse your favourite online shops. It will automatically try coupon codes for you, shows you price history and price drops, and tells if you if it's the best buy.
Carefully Inspect New Appliances
I recommend to carefully inspect your new appliances upon delivery with the delivery person. Make any notations with the delivery person and have it noted on your documents prior to signing the form. Purchasing a new appliance is very expensive and we would not want to receive a damaged, scratched, or dented appliance.
Saving Money on a Sam's Club Membership
When you can coordinate food warehouse memberships and shop with other family members, everyone can save on their groceries. This is a guide about saving money on a Sam's Club membership.
Buying the Most Economical Appliance
Decide what features are must-haves. The dryer pictured was only $299. I gave up the bell that rang when the clothes were dry, because the cheapest model with that feature was $200 more.
Bring Your Own Shopping Bags
Target will give you 5 cents off for every bag they don't have to give you. Be prepared by storing some in the trunk of your car, saving money and the planet.
Don't Get Scammed with Buying Amusement Tickets
Amusement park tickets are always increasing. If we could save any money, we would love to right? But please be careful. Many tickets that sound too good to be true can be fishy or even fake. Do not fall for the scam.
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?
Finding a New Dentist
I haven't lived where I live for a great deal of time so I am not familiar with any dentists here. I would like to find a dentist, but not by using Angie's list or something like that. I have investigated online a lot, ruled out some, but still have questions.
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?
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!
Are My Lenses Made of Glass or Plastic?
How can you tell if your eye glass lenses are plastic or glass?
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.
