Things have taken an unexpected turn. Bleak economy, recession and people losing their jobs. This is happening everywhere. Everyone is trying to save money at some point or another. I know I am. The girls at home noticed that I no longer use the same brands of stuff at home like we used to. We buy products that cost less and more house brands and I find that they are just as good.
Today, I tried to educate my two girls about saving money. They love to buy stationary, storybooks, toys and more when we go out to the nearby mall. If I give them few dollars they would not think twice about buying things that they really need. They spend it all at one go.
There are many ways to save money. A good example is to buy things when they are on a sale or at a promotion price or with the use of coupons. Sometimes these coupons really help because it could be as much as a few to tens of dollars of savings. There are many that came through the mail and many can be found online if you look really hard. I know I used these coupon codes when I paid for my domain and first month of hosting and got a really good price. You can even buy books, cosmetics, clothing or even to get free shipping. The limit is endless.
My eldest daughter told me about her worn out sneakers. I agreed to let her buy one in the coming school holidays. I am sourcing to find the best deals using Reebok coupons and hopefully get a good price for a pair sneakers for her.
