>Our mothers taught us to share, so I’m going to share some tips from an article in the January 2011 Family Circle magazine. Kelli Grant wrote “Fast Money Fixes” on page 57, so if you want more tips, you can check them out at your local store.
One of Kelli’s recommendations is creating a separate email address for your shopping alerts. I did this purely for sanity’s sake–too many emails in one place can drive a girl mad! Kelli has another reason: if you check this inbox less frequently, you will be tempted by the spending gremlin less often.
This tip sounds intriguing. If any of you find money for yourselves, please leave a comment! You can submit your name and states you’ve lived in, and these sites will tell you if you have any unclaimed funds or property sitting around in the government’s holding pen! This could be long-lost bank accounts or unclaimed deposits. You can check into it at MissingMoney.org, Unclaimed.org, and Irs.gov.
Finally, since we all like to find new sites that help us save money, I thought I’d pass on Kelli’s favorites.
PriceGrabber.com (compares prices at different retailers)
RetailMeNot.com (coupon codes)
CouponCabin.com (information about sales)
ShopItToMe.com (information about sales)
Yelp.com (reviews and consumer complaints)
Remember, you can find more of Kelli’s tips in the current issue of Family Circle magazine!
