I have written several posts with simple tips on how to save money.  These tips include things like cooking at home and making your own gifts, but you know as well as I do that there are still times when you just have to buy things.  Regardless of how many “made at home” gifts you can come up with, or how many short-cuts you take to trim the budget, there are just times when you have to make purchases.  If you are like me you will try to find the best deals available.  I know I certainly don’t want to overpay for something, and I am all about saving money.  Using simple tips like checking to make sure the price offered is the best price available, and finding discount codes whenever possible, are two simple ways to make sure your are stretching your dollar as far as you can.    There are some easy ways to do this without scouring the internet day and night to see if you have the best price.

If you take a look at my post about savvy shopping on Amazon, you will see that it is very simple to check and see if the price currently offered for an item is a reasonable price.  In addition, you can check to see if any discounts are available for items on Amazon.  I shop on Amazon a lot, simply because I know I can usually get a good deal, and because shipping is fast and easy (and free if you have Prime), but finding those elusive discount codes can sometimes be a daunting task.  This can be made into a simple, however, by using a discount finding website.  apcodes.com is a website specifically tailored to amazon where you can find discount codes, as well as items that are listed for up to 70% regular price.  

Once on the discount finding website, you just need to search for whatever particular item you may be interested in, or you can click discount finder and view discounts based on a certain category.  This came in useful for me recently when I bought garbage bags.  I simply went to the Home and Kitchen category and searched available discounts.  I was able to find garbage bags that I liked, and I even signed up for a subscription to save even more money.  I also have a subscription for toilet paper to be automatically delivered to our house every five months.  This not only saves me time and money, but it keeps me from running out of toilet paper because no one remembers to tell me when we need more!
