A TIMELY SHOPPING TIP

shopping bags

 

Here’s a great shopping tip for your Holiday Mega Savings.  And who doesn’t like to save?

Before all the hustle and bustle, the guzzling of peppermint mochas and trips to the ATM, it is WISE to sit for a minute and make a plan.  I’m the absolute WORST when it comes to making a plan.  Really.  I’m a total fly by the seat of your pants kind of girl.  So if I can do this, anyone can. 

  1. Think about what stores you will shop today.
  2. Google “*insert store name* coupon.”
  3. Print the coupons.
  4. And off you go. 
  5. Don’t forget the peppermint mocha.

I printed two of the same coupon this morning before leaving home.  Not only was I able to double my savings by using the same coupon twice but I even called Daughter #2 to email me another one and used it again.  I simply showed the clerk the coupon on my phone and VOILA:  Another $30 savings.  By simply googling for a coupon before my shopping trip, I saved $90 more than I would have if I were couponless.  And couponless is no place to be. 

Have a merry Christmas and Happy shopping!

 

Love and Kisses,

I would have never thought to show the clerk a coupon on my phone. That is a great tip! I'm forever buying something at a store and then finding a coupon when I get home!

Didn't know you could do that coupon thing. And I'm done shopping. Crap. Remind me next year ok?

I forget the coupon thing half the time.

And I'm not done shopping, so perhaps... perhaps...

First of all, your posts or hiding in my Google reader because I missed the last 3 or 4 posts.

Second, you sure refer to your age A LOT since you turned the big FIVE-OH. *wink*

Third, get out of the damn kitchen and come sit and lets visit.
