I like to save money anyway I can, I shop around for a few weeks to find wat I new, u can save a $50-$200. And that’s so better in ur packet than the shops

  • Good habit as I also enjoy browsing . If it is not urgent there is no need to get it now and by that time you might not even want it . My brother in law is very persistent . What he does is he may keep an eye out on an item and then purchase it perhaps the 3rd round of sale . He either misses it ( because its gone ) or grabs it at a good price .

  • I am so bad with this. I find its more convenient to do all the shopping in one place. on occasions I have been known to sit down and inspect weekly catalogues to see where the things we need for the week are on special…but with the kids its so easier to just go to one place…I need to start doing this technique again as saving money is an awesome feeling and frees up money to spend elsewhere on fun things to do with the family

  • I often get called a bargain hunter and I get a thrill out of saving a dollar. I have to admit its mostly out of necessity however I still love seeing how little I can spend each week. Most people think Im strange but I love it.

  • I always keep a shopping list on the fridge, so we know what we’re running short of & need to buy. And I won’t go shopping without a list, which I try to stick to. so that I’m not wasting money buying things that we don’t need. And I go through all the supermarket “junk mail” catalogues, looking for bargains, and if there’s something that we always use & it’s going cheap, I’ll buy multiples to save more money.


    • Same here if I write a list I do stick to it if I don’t have one I spend way more

  • online sales and auctions are always great for a bargain, I usually get a large portion of my xmas gifts this way


    • I save so much money looking around for items, even when we go away on holidays I look around for weeks to get the best deal, the money is better in my pocket

  • I too always take forever to purchase something, always looking for the better deal.
    I always buy stuff in multiples when it is cheap but found that it is best to only buy products your family loves. Don’t try new things en masse, because if the family don’t love it it is a waste.
