MONEY: Bits and pieces on SAVING shopping money !
As I receive more responses, more than I expected, I find it is a greater challenge to categorize them. However, each reply is important as each gives a different perspective with the same goal…how to maximize your shopping dollars.
Again, I thank every person who has replied.
“I live alone so my input may not be too valuable. Nevertheless I do review the flyers received on a Thursday from the local merchants and shop accordingly. Basically I look for quality and affordability. Before I donwsized to a one bedroom apt. I use to buy in bulk and store it.”
“I shop at Almost Perfect and Sal’s (brand names in packages, the place is not spotless) in Ajax for some food items. I buy at No Frills and Loblaw’s with my PCMC and receive points for all purchases. I also buy food at Freshco. They’re almost always cheaper. It adds up quickly. I get back about $25 a month in free groceries. I never buy clothing or household items unless they are on sale.
I have a Kobo, so I can download and read books from the library, or if there’s something special I want to read, I’ll purchase it through Kobo and they are always at least 50% less than stores. I visit church bazaars and they usually have a variety of handmade items that make wonderful gifts and I also shop on line, comparing prices. “
