Tis The Season To Be Spending…Err Saving

All out spending or a bit of frugality

It is that time of year again…the holidays. Once again we find ourselves trudging to the nearest shopping centers to find a variety of gifts for everyone we know. Inevitably, we end up spending more money than we may intended to. However, there are some ways you can save a bit of money and still please everyone on your list

Sales, Sales, Sales

It may sound like common sense to most people but you would be surprise at how many of us end up buy high priced items that are not on sale. We all have a some small sense of wanting something that we really want right now. However, if a bit of patience is used and you wait for your item to go on sale it is possible to save hundreds of dollars a year based upon your buying habits.

It is also worth mentioning that just because you never see the items that you want on sale doesn’t mean that they’re not. Many retailers run in store specials that are not advertised at all. This means that it is possible that the item that are looking for may be on sale somewhere. You just don’t know it.

Name Brand vs. No Brand

There are many arguments about the differences between name brand items and items that are not so well known. Be that as it may there are many instances where there is little to no difference at all between these two. For example let’s say your have a name brand white towel and then you have a no name white towel. They are both white and they both dry things, but one costs much more than the other. It is times such as this were a good portion of money can be saved.

Now that you’ve got a few ideas there is no limit to amount of money that you can save. All you really need to do is apply a bit of practicality and creative thinking to your shopping habits.
