The “Saving By Paying Attention” series has been about focusing and not making rash decisions.
Too often, smart people don’t take the time to weigh all options when making an important decisions.
By paying attention, I’ve been able to buy a lot of things for free, like routers for my computers, DVDs, etc. With rebates, you can save substantial amount of money too. There are some huge coupon savings out there if you know where to look.
Another great tool for buying things at a huge discount is the internet. Sometimes you can find some great deals on Ebay.com. I’ve been able to buy old CD/DVDs from ebay for a great price, not to mention the unique, one of a kind items that can be found. For instance, I’ve been able to buy a firefighter nightlight from my son when he was younger.
Another great site for good prices on products is www.woot.com, I’ve been able to buy merchandise that has been refurbished at great prices. Both of my kid’s mp3 players were bought online at www.woot.com!
I’ve recently learned of a site called: http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/, but I haven’t researched it enough yet to feel comfortable recommending it. Still you might want to check it out, mainly they offer free software downloads.
Another great way save money is to go to blogger sites that are offering giveaways. Every so often, you’ll see a $100 dollar giveaway from the blogger sites!
I know people that use the radio contests to win money to. In fact, this is how one of my friends won a free house. Another friend continually calls the sites trying to win money and prizes. Often time she succeeds! It’s amazing the opportunities out there to either win money or prizes.
It you concentrate and think outside of the box, there are plenty of money saving or winning opportunities out there!
