Remember the Coupon Code

In today's tough economy, every little bit you can save counts.  When shopping online, that means looking for a coupon code before you check out.  For instance, if you need a lot of table cloths, you can save up to 20% by using a tableclothsfactory coupon code offered right on the site.  Other times you'll just have to do a web search for coupon codes for the site you are buying from.  Whether it's 10% off your order, free shipping, or some other savings, it's worth the extra few minutes it takes to search.

Another great way to save money on online shopping is to use one of the cash back sites such as Ebates, ShopatHome, and Big Crumbs.  I have referral links in my sidebar for each of those sites, so if you haven't yet signed up for them, please consider using those links.  You'll get a bonus just for signing up, and so will I!

Not only do those sites give you cash back for practically every purchase you make online, they also list available coupons codes, helping you save as much as possible.

The key really is remembering to use them.  Every time.  You know me; I love to save a penny.  I still catch myself ordering something online and then remembering the next day that I should have checked one of those sites to see if I could get cash back on my purchase.  And I torture myself by checking to see how much I could have saved, and I promise to do better next time.

If you really want to save, remember those coupon codes and be sure to shop through one of the cash back sites every time you shop online.  Those savings can really add up.
