Back-to-school shopping season is underway, however sales are limited and new wardrobes are expensive! Here at GUS, we have come up with a few tips on how to save on shopping.
With television shows on air like Extreme Couponing, and tons of blogs such as Couponing 101, couponing has become a fad in today’s society. Whether it be extreme or not, couponing can save lots of money on everything ranging from food to clothing. We know that there is that shirt or pair of shoes that you just need for the upcoming fall, and coupons can help you save money on all of your upcoming purchases. Money saving blogger Brianna Carter (check out her blog at http://bargainbriana.com/) teaches “others to save money while shopping by utilizing effective coupon methods.” Brianna tells GUS that you can find coupons in magazines or online, however “you have to act quickly before the printable coupons are gone.” For thousands of bargains and coupons, go to Brianna’s Coupon Database here: http://bargainbriana.com/coupon-database. Another easy and obvious way to save on shopping is to use the gift cards you received for the holidays or on your birthday. However, we know how hard it is to keep track of these. Who has ever lost a gift card or forgotten about it until it’s expired? Don’t worry; you are not alone. At GUS, our Shopping Organizer for Receipts, Gift Cards and Coupons is great solution for this. Now you will have a place to store and organize all of these items that are commonly misplaced or forgotten about.
Also, our Keepsake Keeper is another great product to help you organize your receipts. This item will make tax season much easier and a whole lot less stressful!
