Mommy Money Saver #4

When shopping online, I will ALWAYS google "promotional codes" for the site I am purchasing from. For example, if shopping on amazon, I google "amazon promo codes" and up comes a list of several websites that provide lots of options for saving money. Typically, you can save $5-$10 off smaller purchases (like books, food, etc.) and up to $50 or $100 off larger purchases (from Sears, for example). Restaurants often have promotional codes as well, so don't just look for deals when buying products! Regularly we get free drinks and free appetizers through promo codes when we order from restaurants online (e.g. Swiss Chalet).

If you're willing to put in the effort this can save you some good money over time... you will likely have to try a few codes before you find one that works because you'll often find codes promoted that are already expired - stick with it!

I recently shared this tip - inadvertantly - with a group of college friends. We were all sitting around one computer ordering something and I opened a new window and googled just like you said. All three of them looked at me ... like I was brilliant ... and said, "How did you know about that?" I had to wonder, how did you not know about that?! :)

Great tip to share with your blog audience!
