#BlackFriday

It has arrived. The day shoppers wait for. Discounts and sales have been reviewed, studied and compared. Greenbacks will be spent, plastic will melt, wallets will shrink. Yes, today is the day. Its #BlackFriday!

Personally, I cannot do the overnight camping thing to get a deal on a tv. My temper just isn’t what you need when people are in the everybody for themselves mentality. Crowding my personal space and getting rowdy is not my idea of a good time for the holidays. I prefer online shopping.

I do just as much work prepping for the sales as anyone setting foot in the stores. I know what I like and I want the best possible deal. I use coupon codes and shop at premium times. I get deals on free shipping and BOGO items too. So when I tell you I know what I am doing, its because I have years of experience. Just ask my husband! (You don’t have to really ask him…I actually don’t want to bring up my shopping habit if you know what I mean!)

One of my absolute favorite sites is Ebates. I shop all of my favorite stores and get to select the discounts I want to use. For example, I love Kohl’s and they have loads of discounts available. You can get 15% off plus $15 Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend PLUS you get your Ebates discount of another 8% just by clicking through the link and shopping online.

Shopping in my pj’s while sipping my coffee and saving money…proof that I am a multi-tasking queen! Now to be fair, I am not getting paid by Kohl’s for any sort of promotion whatsoever. I just wanted to share their storefront as an example. Do you prefer to shop JCPenney? They are offering 10% cash back plus $10 off a purchase of $25 or more if you shop through their Ebates links. Want to buy a special piece of jewelry for someone? Use the Jewelry.com link here for 14% off. Need a new piece of furniture from Ashley? Get 15% off here!

Just head over to Ebates and register today and you will get $10 back just for making your first purchase at ANY of their stores. Ill make it easy for you…here is the small print:

*To qualify for a Welcome Bonus, you must be a new member and make minimum qualifying purchases totaling at least twenty-five dollars ($25) within ninety (90) days of becoming a Member.

Happy Shopping!

Frugal living ain’t half bad

As much as I like to spend money (sshhh, don’t tell my hubby), I love to save even more (that you can tell him). It doesn’t always work out but I have definitely used some tips along the way to keep money in the bank. Frankly, if I can save $15 on a shopping trip, that means I have the choice to save it or to spend $15 on something else.

One of my favorite tips actually came from 24 Savvy and its always in the back of my mind when I shop. When you see something that you have convinced yourself that you ABSOLUTELY need, consider how many hours you have to work to buy that item. It has kept me from buying quite a few things that it turns out (gasp!) I don’t actually need.

There are loads of sites out there that promote all kinds of life hacks. I have so many of them bookmarked and refer to them often. Ill keep sharing them (the good ones I actually use) with all of you.
