Tips To Shop and Save Online!

Since I have an infant and a two-year old, their schedules clash and I don't find a lot of time to do my shopping outside of the house anymore. I have found myself shopping online more and more...and LOVING IT! I don't have to take the kids (and their entourage of items that have to go along when we leave the house!), stress about crying or tantrums, or go out in the hot and humidity! I just sit back in my comfy chair and search for my favorite products! And I usually find it cheaper online because I always make sure to use coupons!

Do you want to save money by shopping online too? Well, then let me help you by sharing some of my best tips for saving online EVERYTIME!

1. Always Check For Coupons Before Buying Online!
Many people know about coupons for the grocery store, but make sure you also know about coupons (also called coupon codes or promo codes) that you can find online before you purchase! Before I go shopping or commit to buying a product, I always search for a coupon online from coupon sites like, a great coupon site for FREE coupons, discounts & promo codes for Canada residents!

Get into the habit of checking prices online and checking for coupon codes before each and every time you shop and you will definitely save!

2. Let Coupons Guide You
If you don't know exactly what brand of product you want to buy, let the coupon codes and discounts lead you. Browse coupon sites to find the cheapest brand or best coupons out there!

I recently did this while searching for tools as a gift for my husband. I found some great coupons and exclusive discounts for Sears on a coupon site. I then knew where I should buy the tools from and I definitely saved money!

3. Check to See if a Merchant or Site Offers Discounts If You Sign Up for Their Newsletter 
Make sure to see if there are any discounts available on a site by signing up for a site's newsletter. If they don't offer a discount on a purchase, they may offer emails that send you great deals and will save you money in the long run.

For example, many stores will give you a discount off your first order when you sign up for their newsletter or will send you the best deals from their site, like does in their newsletter!

4. Always Look for Free Shipping
Have you ever had this happen to you? You end up finding a great deal on a product you want, but then you get to checkout and the shipping is twice the price of the product!

Don't let that happen again by searching for online merchants that offer free shipping. You can also often find coupons/codes that will give you free shipping on orders as well.

So next time you are don't want to head out into the heat to shop, do it right from the comfort of your home! But remember, do it wisely and always search for coupons and discounts to save you money!

What are your tips for saving online?? 
I would love to add them to our list!

Hi! Thanks for the tips. I also find that liking a company's facebook page helps me get deals.
Example: I liked Indigenous' facebook page
(they have pretty organic clothes!)
and they are always having contests and giveaways. Sometimes I see deals on White Apricot too... I try to only wear organic, and since it can be expensive, it's important to be an extra smart shopper.
Thanks again!
