**Kristine Jenkins of Fruition passed along an article to me that I wanted to post to all of you! Useful tips.
Some things you buy every day result in a pleasant surprise when you find them for less than you expected. No matter how bad economic times are, there are essentials everyone must have. Whether you’re buying necessities, or simply things that make life better, everyone loves bargains.
Save On Things You Will Buy Anyway
Airfare – Sometimes getaways are essential! It’s good advice to buy airline tickets in the morning, before business travelers start shopping. Buy tickets as far out as possible before your travel date, they’re cheaper and probably won’t change much in price. Saturdays are good days to fly. The most expensive days to fly are Sunday and Thursday.
Event Tickets - When clubs or theaters have unsold seats, they rely on websites like www.Goldstar.com or resellers like www.Stubhub.com to fill those seats that would go unused. Great deals are available. Especially close to, or on the show date. Some of the hottest events can now be seen inexpensively.
Coffee – For some, coffee is a must in the morning, or all day. Expensive brands aren’t always better either. Cheaper brands like Dunkin’ Donuts are popular and sell for less than brews from couture coffee houses like Starbucks. Better yet, brew your own at home and watch as your savings perk.
Prescription Eyeglasses – If you have a prescription from last time you saw your eye doctor, use it to order inexpensive glasses from places like www.eyebuydirect.com. When you’re using glasses as a complement to contacts, it pays to spend less on them. Prices begin around $40.
Gift Cards To Favorite Stores – Find unused gift cards cheaper at websites like www.PlasticJungle.com. Many options are available at an average of 15 percent off. Get a $100 gift card for only $85. Now that’s smart!
Software For Computers – Websites like www.Royaldiscount.com sell new software that is guaranteed to work, at bargain prices. Students love getting deals on things like software, so they have extra money for the really important things.
Beauty Necessities – Websites like NoveauCheap help fashionista’s find all the best deals in one easy to search spot. Look your best every day, for less.
Bargain Clothing – Ladies clothing especially is available for bargain prices, when you know where to look. Places like the 10 dollar mall and www.6pm.com help shoppers find prices that are up to 75 percent off.
Cheap Sunglasses – It’s not only a ZZ Top hit song. Great deals are found online on all the best styles of designer inspired sunglasses. Places like sunglasshut.com and sharpshades.com are great places to start.
Designer Shoes For Less – Everyone needs shoes. www.Bluefly.com, www.6pm.com and Zappo’s are great places to find deals. When you want great looks at lower prices, you’ll be amazed at the finds at discount sites.
Bargain hunting has never been more fun or exciting. Since you’re going to buy these things anyway, why not be smart and save as much as possible? Saving money is always a great feeling!
