4 Ways to Save Money when Shopping

July 7, 2017

Shopping at Jet.comObviously I love shopping… probably more than I should. Shopping is my therapy. It’s how I unwind. Finding a good deal makes my heart happy. But that love of shopping means I spend a lot of money. Probably too much money, sometimes. While we don’t currently operate from a budget (although I probably should. Definitely something to work on this year!) spending less money on the lame things, means we have more money for the fun things!


  • lame: sunblock, groceries, cat food, kitty litter, diapers, etc.
  • fun: clothes, shoes, decor, entertainment, etc.

  1. Shop Online.
    When you shop online, sticking to your shopping list is much easier. If you normally don’t use a shopping list? You use one now! You aren’t walking past end caps with random candles and knick knacks calling your name. You can get when you need and get on with your day. Not to mention, shopping online is quicker and easier since your items show up on your door step. #convenient
  2. Sign up for email coupons.
    Then you’ll always know when there’s a deal.
  3. Take advantage of free shipping. (And free returns, too!) 
    I don’t care how badly I want the items in my cart… it just pains me to pay for shipping.
  4. Review your cart before you click BUY.
    Go through each thing in your cart to see if there’s anything you don’t NEED. If you don’t need it, delete it.

So. Back to point #1. Shopping online. One of my favorite things in life. Did you know when you shop online at, you save money by adding additional items to your cart? They have thousands of items I use every day. From groceries to baby supplies, it makes my life simpler, which is something this busy mama is always grateful for.

Last week, I had totally random things on my shopping list. Sunblock. Toddler-friendly bug spray. Snacks. A game for the backyard. Some lights for the deck. Baby bottle wash. You know… some random essentials, and some things we had been meaning to pick up for the longest time, but always seem to forget while out and about running errands. All of my items arrived super quickly and in perfect condition.

    I’m all about convenience these days too, but just cannot pay for shipping! I tend to buy more to avoid shipping costs. LOL
