Save Money This Christmas Using These Four Websites


"The first weekend of December and all through the Internet, consumers were shopping and spending their cents!"

So....doing some Christmas shopping this weekend? Here are four websites you must add to your check list: they can save you money, time and stress, plus keep the "humbug" away!!

1. Pricegrabber (pricegrabber.com). Go to this site to compare prices on an item before you buy. Make sure you pay the lowest price before ordering a gift this year~ You can also list and sell items on Pricegrabber. Check it out!

2. Woot (woot.com). On this site, they sell one thing a day normally. And when that thing is sold out, then you have to wait until tomorrow for the next thing. Usually, that item is 40 percent to 50 percent off what the original price is. Worth taking a look at before you shop. Plus there are several Woot sites-

Deals.woot
Wine.woot
Kids.woot
Sellout.woot


3. Slickdeals (slickdeals.net). This site can offer great savings when it comes to computer stuff, digital cameras, HD flat screens and even cooking ware, toys, clothing and so on. Check it out!

4. Retail Me Not (retailmenot.com). You can search for coupon codes for 40,000 stores using this site. Definitely worth checking out before doing your Christmas shopping!

I love Woot and Retailmenot! Your list is great and I'd like to add one more because it doesn't include any cash back sites. I like http://www.lilideals.com because you can often combine offers to make a better deal, for example, get a coupon then add free shipping and then get cash back on the whole purchase!

How to Save $10,000 This Year

I first posted this last Jan. (2011)- thought it was worthwhile posting again this year! Also, I mistakenly entered $24.40 in the original post as the amount to save each day-the correct amount is $27.40. 




Yes, you can save (or make--depending on how you look at it!) $10,000 by the end of this year, and it is really pretty easy.

Save $27.40 each day, and after 365 days, you will have saved $10,001 dollars.

Of course, since we are now about 14 days in to Jan., you will need to adjust that savings a bit- but still, you get the gist, right?

And if you save $10 a day, you can still have $3,650.

How about $5 a day? That will give you a nice savings of $1,825.

How to save money each day? Here are a few ideas:


Skip Starbucks--make your own coffee
Skip the take-out lunch--make peanut butter and jelly snadwiches
Make spaghetti 2 times a week--skip the meat
Buy a water filter and drink tap water--skip the bottled waters
Put back one item from your grocery cart each time you shop--and save the co…

Things To Do With Empty Cans of Soup

All of these ideas start with a clean empty soup can with no jagged edges. For some you may want to peel off the labels, others you might just leave the labels on!



1.. Having a picnic? Use empty Campbells soup cans as utensil holders for plastic forks and spoons on the picnic tables. (leave labels on ..adds a colorful unique touch!)

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.
7. Make a Christmas Lum…
