10 Money Saving Tips and Tricks

1. Paid Coupon Printing – I have had success with (the survey panel and Get-Paid-To System) InboxDollars paying me to print coupons to use at the store. InboxDollars will pay you 10 cents per coupon (up to 150 coupons). The savings can amount to over $300 (if you use all coupons). In addition to huge store savings, you earn some cash for using coupons!
2. Buy Store Brands – Many major retailers (like Walmart, Dollar General, and Family Dollar) offer customers their own discount store brands. These store brands are the exact same product as their name brand counterpart (and are often manufactured at the same facility). For example, Walmart's store brand is called Great Value, and Dollar General's store brand is called DG.
3. Buy Generic – Just like buying the store brand is cheaper – buying Generic products is (usually) less expensive. You can often find cheaper medications by buying Generic.
4. Always Look at the Clearance Aisle – When I visit a store, I always scope out their Clearance aisle before looking at their regularly priced items. You can come up with big bargains in Clearance.
5. Shop at Discount Retailers – Often times discount retailers sell brand name products at deep discounts. Most cities have several discount retailers (which you can find via a Google search).
6. Check out Overstock Merchandise – When stores can't sell their merchandise, they offer it at deep discounts. Often times wholesalers will buy up large quantities of overstock merchandise to sell at discounted prices.
7. Look for End-of-Season Bargains – I find many of my best bargains at the end of a season. For example, I will buy next year's winter coat at the end of winter – on sale – and save it to wear next winter.
8. Take Advantage of Store Rebates – Many retailers (especially consumer electronics stores) offer rebates after you buy a product from them. I have gotten rebates from buying computers, TVs, and major appliances.
9. Earn Cashback Rewards – Sometimes it pays not to pay with cash or a debit card. Several credit card companies offer generous cashback rewards for using their credit card. Sometimes retailers have their store cards – which can earn you even more cashback savings.
10. Download Retail Apps to Find More Savings – Finally, take advantage of any technology that can help you save money. Most large retailers now have their own app to compete with e-commerce sites. Their apps usually offer additional savings not found in their store.

In short, there are several creative ways to save money and live a more frugal life. You just have to do a bit of research, as well as put in the time and effort.

Good luck on saving money!
