Using coupons isn’t the only way to save. Many people haven’t jumped on the coupon bandwagon but know there are lots of other ways to save money. When shopping at any retail store ask if they have any coupons when you are checking out. You will be surprised how many times the cashier will reach under the counter to pull out a coupon for you. If you just want to shop at one place use Walmart’s price matching policy which will help you get the sales from other stores. I do suggest printing a copy of Walmart’s coupon and price matching policy and keeping with you. Stock up on items now that go on sale. Target is also price matching prices through December 16th. Just pull up the price on your mobile device and they will match it for you. Target has a huge toy sale two times a year usually in early January and during the summer when items get marked down 75%. Fill your closet for the holiday and birthday gifts all at once and you never have to run out for a full-priced gift at the last minute. Ask about discount days for special pricing. Kroger has senior discount day the first Wednesday of every month where a senior can get an additional 10% off their purchase. My salon has a special on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday that isn’t advertised but told to me by my stylist. Many stores and service establishments give discounts on weekdays to get you in during their slow days. When purchasing big ticket items, plan ahead and don’t be shy about asking for a better deal. If they won’t come down on price, ask for a value-add like free delivery or installation. Here is a list of the best time to shop for certain products.

Appliances: Holiday weekends

Cameras and Camcorders: February and March

Carpet and Flooring: January

China and Flatware: March and September

Computers: August and December
