Tips

Saving money only works if you have a plan. Don’t go spending your hard earned money until you choose a focus and set goals. If you don’t do that first, you will be wasting money. Here are some ideas to help you get focused:

  1. Prepare for the HolidaysThese deals are a great chance to get an early jump on your holiday shopping. This is my favorite way to utilize these kinds of sales. Check out the gift planner on our VIP Page before you start so you can keep track of all of your purchases. (Not subscribed yet? Sign up here for access to your VIP library of free resources.)
  2. Get Organized This year there are tons of options to help you save on getting organized. If you’ve been Organizing Your Life from A to Z, this is a great way to do so on a budget!
  3. Prepare for VacationGet your family vacation ready with deals on items like air mattresses and technology. You can even find deals on items to put in your Road Trip Survival Bag for Kids (or get some of those splurge items that make life on the road easier).
  4. Professional DevelopmentThese sales are great to build up your tools, resources, and even your skills. You can upgrade your camera and invest in a lighting kit. Purchase development tools such as a foreign language software or professional books. 

Again, the best way to save the maximum amount of money is to have a clear and concise focus that you do not deviate from. These are just a few ideas for narrowing your purchase scope. Use them as starting points to find the perfect buying focus for your current needs.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
  • Thanks, Emily! It can be so hard not to get caught up in all of the deals and add clutter you don’t really need to your home. I hope you still got some awesome deals on items you needed! 🙂
