I prefer going into the stores, trying items on to get the feel and fit before I purchase anything. But sometimes it's better to shop online. I know that some people are skeptical of online shopping but it can be a great way to save money.
1.) Always check the return policy.
This is an absolute MUST for Frugalista. There are times when online purchases can be returned only through the mail. Which means that you loose more money paying for the item to be shipped back to the merchant. So be extra cautious when you purchase anything online!
2.) Look for online coupons!
one of my favorite sources is RetailMeNot.com. People share their online coupons with one another and offer advice on how to stack the coupons to get the best deal. This site is an amazing way to try to get free shipping or discounts on your order
3.) Take a moment to think before you buy
It's easy to get caught up in the moment when you get a great deal. So always ask yourself, do I really need it?
