I'm all about saving money and not spending more than I have to. Once I've decided that I really need to buy something, I look for sales, I compare prices, use coupons, shop on line, look up discount promo codes on the internet, buy gently used items and even try to repurpose when possible. There is no reason to pay full price for almost anything these days if you plan ahead, and invest a little time to do some research.
Retailer price coding has been a topic on the news lately, so I decided to research it further to share what I found with readers here. There is some great advice on how to save money if you know how retailers price their merchandise! The link below also has a printable chart with coding information that can come in handy when you are out shopping. Or you can save the link on your smart phone!
