Using Coupons and Shopping Codes


I do a LOT of online shopping to say the least. I like to get the most out of my money and save where I can. I will literally scour the internet to find coupon codes before finalizing a purchase to make sure I'm achieving the maximum savings possible on that purchase. You can call me crazy, but even if it saves me a dollar or fifty cents at that, I'm happy. You see, we're a household of 3 with our son on the way due January 3rd. I'm back to being a stay at home mom and my husband is the bread winner for our family, which I'm completely grateful for by the way. So it's important for our family to watch our spending and maximize our savings when possible.

I find that using online promo codes is an effective way to shop online and help us maintain that budget without compromising things we enjoy. What I mean by that is that I don't have to cut out my jewelry or clothes shopping out of our life because of one less income, I just have to be aware of HOW MUCH I'm spending - which is where the discount codes come in. The thing is, some sites don't always advertise they have a 50% off discount code. Some sites they have promotions for being a newsletter subscriber. As I said, sometimes these are common knowledge and made easy across the companies page. Other times you have to do a little research to discover these things from other uses finding out by accident.

The bottom line here is to spend wisely. Don't miss out on things you love, just find the discount for it! It's like having your cake and eating it too. Now if only we could use manufacturer coupons online as we do in stores then I'd really be set!
