Saving Money On The Net

Sorry it has been so long since my last post. I'm hoping to be here a little bit more often as we roll into the holidays.

If you're like the rest of us and you're pinching pennies, I've got two hot links for you. I've been following them for a while and they really do offer some terrific deals!

Kaley at Chaching On A Shoestring spends her days looking for bargains, which means we get the benefit of her efforts! Sign up for her daily newsletter. It's chock full of links to find free stuff, not to mention all kinds of two-for-one deals. I love following Kaley and have already saved money!

It was through Kaley that I discovered Groupon. It's set up by city, but there are also on-line deals. They're harder to find because you have to search the cities (hey, Groupon, how about an on-line button for those of us who aren't in a big city?), but the deals can be terrific. Lots of bargains on restaurants and eating out, but there are also deals for Coldwater Creek and other national stores.

However, please beware of some of the pay-to-bid auction sites that seem to be to good to be true. If you have to pay to bid, proceed with extreme caution. Check out this article before you sign up.

Ebay is still on the up and up, though you do have to read the sales information carefully, and please take care not to fall for a low price but get hit with a huge shipping and handling fee!

Five cupcakes for Chaching On A Shoestring and Groupon!

I love Groupon! We've gotten lots of good deals on local restaurants. Besides saving money, it's a nice way to check out places you might not otherwise try.

Catherine, I'm always a little bit leery of these new get-a-great-bargain places, but Groupon is terrific!

I just discovered Groupons and have since used some of their deals.

Krista said...

Me, too, Dru. Groupon is a great idea!

Wow, Krista. I'm honored. Thanks so much for this post! (And I agree...Groupon is great!)
