I consider myself a conscious shopper who only buys items that I need and fill a void in my closet and my home. So I’m not easily swayed by a great sale. I always think whether I truly need the item because if you buy something just because it’s a great deal but you don’t really need it, it’s really not much of a deal after all. I also consider the quality and probable longevity of each item I buy. But for the items I do need and purchase, I like to get the best deal possible.
Here are some recent purchases I got for a great deal - as much as 80% off (I see myself enjoying each item for many years to come):
There is no worse feeling than standing in line at a store and seeing everyone getting money off with a coupon but you don’t have one. Unfortunately, I’m not that good at collecting/printing out/keeping track of coupons. But I was recently introduced to Groupon Coupons and enjoy checking the site for my favorite stores. Some of the coupons available at the site are for online use and others are to be used in stores.
For example, through the site, I was recently able to get a 20% off coupon to be used at Macy’s in stores (or online, if you so chose); I bought a birthday gift with it. I also got a 40% off clearance items coupon for J. Crew Factory; we got Andy some new shirts. There isn’t always a coupon available for all stores, but if you check back frequently, you are likely to find a coupon for many of the stores you shop at. I think it’s definitely worth it to do so before you complete an online transaction or head out to the mall.
Questions: Are you good at using coupons? How do you decide whether to buy something that’s a “good deal?”
