Shopping online is a must for me. It doesn't require timing around naps, making sure faces are clean, or dressing 2 kids. It doesn't even require me to put on "normal" clothes, I can shop in my pajamas without being judged.
I don't have to fight crowds or wait in line. Seriously, what did we do before online shopping? I do almost all of my shopping online. The only thing I don't regularly purchase on the net is groceries.
Always, always, always shop around. It's so easy to do. I regularly use the Google Shopping search to find the best prices. It shows the retailer name, store rating, item condition, base price, shipping and tax prices, and the total costs all one one page.
Never complete a check-out before looking for coupon codes. You can search online for "retail name" and"coupon codes" to find current codes. I've also found that often times, there will be a form right on the website where I can sign up to receive coupons instantly via e-mail.
Check Shipping Prices
I do the majority of my shopping using Amazon, because of their free shipping on most orders over $35. Of course I use Amazon Prime which gives me FREE 2-day shipping on most orders. Most retailers do offer free shipping when you meet a certain price point. If you have a $45 item, but the company offers free shipping on orders over $50, you will probably save money by adding a $5 item to your cart and receiving free shipping. Sometimes, shipping prices will actually kill a deal, so pay close attention before completing your purchase.
