4 Ways to Save Money when Shopping


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

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben
  • Bsquared #BlaireandBen 😍😘☺️
  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
