Five Savings Tips from the Angel himself - Josh Elledge!
Josh Elledge, Our Chief Executive Angel says "Everyone needs to use these tips to Enlightened Shopping".
1. Buy what you DON'T need
Shopping from a need-based shopping list is the most expensive way to shop. Instead, shop from your own pantry - stocking up on items that you can get at 50%-100% off - so you'll have them in the future when you need them.
2. Stock up!
When you find a truly great price on a product because of a coupon/sale matchup, check the expiration date on the product. Buy as many of that item as you know you can comfortably use before that expiration.
3. Using coupons takes time - Get over it
Using technology like SavingsAngel.com, you can do in one hour a week what used to take 5-8 hours each week. For that one hour invested, you can save an additional $30-$40 - which is a GREAT hourly wage!
4. Your Sunday newspaper is a money-maker
You can invest a couple dollars each week and get more than $100 in coupons. Even if you redeem just a couple of them, you've made your money back.
5. Start small if you have to - but START TODAY
Every week that you shop the old-fashioned way of browsing the aisles trying to pick the lowest price for the items you need you lose $40-$80 a week.
