How to Shop for Free

Shopping Secrets for Smart Women Who Love to Get Something for Nothing
written by Kathy Spencer with Samantha Rose
DeCapo Press, 2010
non-fiction

A whole book about shopping and saving money? YES. And, let me warn you now. You might start to hyperventilate when you read this book. I’m just saying. You’ve been warned.

Get organized and start with coupons – and there are tons of coupon sites. Then, learn about combining and doubling, buy one / get one deals, using rebates and rain checks, buying coupons on eBay (yes, you read that right) and more. Then, what’s the difference between stockpiling and hoarding – and what should you stockpile?

I personally like her tips about awards programs – at places like CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens, Victoria’s Secret, the Body Shop, PetCo and more.  Or, you can save money by telling your neighbors about products like the Vocalpoint program from Procter and Gamble.

Well, I can’t give away the entire book of secrets so you’ll have to read it for yourself. I think you’ll make back the money you spend on the book pretty quickly once you get up to speed with some of the savings tips.
