Shopping in the current economy can be quite overwhelming. We all want the designer shoes, the handbags, the 60 inch t.v., every beauty product known to man, and to have it all with a substantial amount of money in our savings account. Everyday living and extravagances can seem impossible, but they aren’t. You just need to know how to get savvy in order to cut costs where it counts. Below are a few ways to help you save on personal items, fashion, travel and more.
Save on Personal Items
There are ways to shop and save on all sorts of items like toothpaste, shampoo & conditioner, hair products, deodorant, toilet paper and those energy bars you like to eat just after you’ve hit the gym. Check out stores like Walgreens. Walgreens offers coupon codes and deals to get you extra savings and up to 90% off the retail price of all your favorite beauty and personal items.
Fashion For Less
Want to accessorize your Cynthia Rowley Dress with a Rolex? Or just look like you did? Check out stores like Nordstrom or Forever 21. Nordstrom carries a boat load of designer deals. While Forever 21 has all your knock-off, look-a-likes for less. Whether you’re looking for a cocktail dress or swanky earrings, both of these stores are regularly advertised on Groupon with killer savings in free coupon codes.
Travel can be a bit of a burden. Searching for the cheapest car rentals, hotels, flights and more can be a pain and super-time consuming. Try booking with places like Fox Rent A Car for up to 90% off the retail price. Plus, save wear and tear on your own vehicle and get out of dodge for a relaxing weekend or family holiday.
Doing it yourself really is the best way to save the most money. Once you find a contractor or landscape architect, they jack up the price in materials, charge you labor for an extra guy you’ve never seen, and tack on the taxes after giving you a low quote without them. Avoid the expensive upcharges and look for coupon codes to stores like Home Depot, who can help you find the materials you need, offer you free shipping on select appliances, and save you labor costs.
