Simple Ways to Save a Buck... Or More!
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the cost of raising a child can be an estimated $200,000... not including the price of college. With those kinds of expenses, it behooves you to cut your costs wherever you can. Most people don't realize how very simple saving a buck can be. Common sense equals common cents. Here are a few helpful hints for spending less and putting more in your pocket. When it comes to shopping online, always do a search for promotional codes or coupons. Most sites offer some sort of discount whether it's a percentage off or a discount on shipping. Before you check out online, be sure to Google the site's name, along with coupons or discounts. The same goes for shopping offline. Check out the local paper and browse for coupons that you can use when shopping. Also keep an eye on grocery store ads. Set your sights on BOGO (buy one get one free) offers. Take advantage of these specials when they're available. Incorporate meatless Mondays into your menu.
