Helpful Tips To Save Money On Household Bills & Lifestyle Costs

These days, it's become slightly chic to be thrifty--not annoyingly penny pinching--just smart and efficient when it comes to spending money. My newest article, Clever Ways To Save Money (That You May Not Already Know) offers helpful tips to help you save a little extra money on household bills, utilities and lifestyle costs. Particularly now with the holidays upon us, it's always nice to save money wherever possible, stretching the 'almighty' dollar as far as we can.

Being an independent retailer (that means I sell stuff online), I have been caught up in the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales just as much as the next person, if not more. It's interesting, and exciting to learn that online sales are up 24% so far this holiday season, and I'm very curious to see what December will bring. What are your online shopping habits? Do you look for coupon codes, sales and discounts on a regular basis? I would love to hear from you. I am always looking for creative ways to bring good deals to my customers, and if you have a favorite method, please don't be shy!

Also, if you have your own clever ways of saving money, I invite you to share them here. We could all use a little help these days, and after all, knowledge is power. It's free charity too. : )
