With the Holiday season quickly approaching, many of us are thinking about shopping online to find super prices for those hard to find Christmas gifts. How many of you are just waiting for the Cyber Monday deals to come out so that you can start planning which sites to visit first? At our house, with three little ones to shop for, we might just have to be sitting on both computers with multiple browsers open so that we can shop multiple sites at the same time.
Maybe you know, though, that you can find great deals online all year long. Need a Valentine’s Day gift, check online. What about clothes for little ones? Have you looked for “end of season” clothes” online? If I buy end of summer clothes in a size about a year larger than my children are now, I can be pretty reasonably assured that they will fit (even if they might be a little baggy) the next Spring. I can buy a whole wardrobe for what would usually be the cost of just 3 or 4 outfits.
You can also get great deals on services or trips. Try finding discounts for photography sessions online and you’ll see what I mean. This summer, we even got a great deal on a local weekend trip. It cost us maybe half of what it would have cost without the discount. The kids had a great time and we got a great memory, something that we wouldn’t have been able to do if we hadn’t been shopping online.
What great deals have you gotten by shopping online? What do you tend to shop for? Goods? Services? Trips? Leave us a comment and let us know!
