Being a stay-at-home Mom definitely has its rewards, though we also must make some sacrifices. My husband earns most of our income and, for that reason, we are on a budget. Each month we have an allotted amount of money going to bills, groceries and necessary items. When I first started living on a budget, times were tough and I honestly had no idea what I was doing, but now I look at each month as a challenge. Can I save more this month than last month?
I, of course, clip my coupons from the Sunday paper, but living up in the mountains, I depend more on online purchases. I have found that I do tend to save more by purchasing online. Plus, I don't have to stand in lines and deal with rude people, which makes it completely worth my time! How do you save money by purchasing online? First, you must look for sales. Search around other deal blogs and find the items on sale that you need to buy. Then, go to PromotionCode.org to find great codes for the online stores and products I want to purchase. I just recently found the website and was so excited.
My husband finally admitted he needed a new pair of tennis shoes last week, so I knew it as definitely time to purchase some. The poor guy will wear shoes until there are holes in the bottom! I immediately hopped online and began searching for deals. PromotionCode.org has their "Hottest" and "Newest" promo codes listed on the homepage as well as links to separate Categories. I clicked on "Shopping" and found a huge alphabetically organized list of businesses and codes available! As someone who is all about organization, I love the way this site is put together, making it easy to find exactly what I was looking for.
I ended up buying him a few different items for his new and updated wardrobe. I found a code for $10 off a $60 purchase at Finish Line as well as a 30% off a purchase at Lands' End, one of his favorite brands. When all was said and done, he had a new pair of tennis shoes, a new shirt, and a nice pair of khakis! Now that he has some new clothes, I think it's about time to find some new items for my summer wardrobe. I really need a new swimsuit!
What new clothes do you need for this summer? We ended up saving $40 on my husband's new clothes, so he was very happy and now I can buy even more! Just don't tell him I mentioned that last part.
