In-Sites

I have to admit that I am all about saving money. So, I thought that I would share a few things that I have found about saving money on-line. Be cautioned that many of these sites require registration. This inevitably means you are subject to more e-mails. But, sometimes the savings can be worth what little it costs (just think how easy it is to set up a free shopping-specific e-mail address).

One of the areas in which we spend a significant amount of money is at the grocery store. A couple of great, related Web sites to help you get started in this area are <http://www.jillcataldo.com> and <http://www.supercouponing.com>. Although sections are restricted by password, these Web sites lead to many on-line coupon sources. Another source is your grocery store shopper card. A couple of Web sites to find printable coupons include <http://www.couponmom.com> and <http://coupons.com>. Some stores will let you register your store card on-line, and, if you visit their Web site, they will give you special coupons or savings. A few stores to check out are: <http://www.Jewel-Osco.com> (Avenu savings), <http://www.kroger.com/Pages/default.aspx> (under the “In Store” tab), <http://www.dominicks.com>, and <http://www.safewa.com> (for these sites look for the link to load coupons onto your store card).

For general household stuff, check out <http://www.overstock.com> or <http://www.buy.com> sometimes you can come across that great deal. And, to get discounts on store specific on-line purchases check out <http://www.couponcabin.com>.

One final tip, if you are wondering if there are any coupons for a store you are going to visit (either brick and mortar or electronically), in your Web browser, type in “coupon + [store name]” and you may be surprised at what you find. One word of caution, you need to check expiration dates on these.

Happy Savings! ■
