Don’t You Want to SAVE Money in 2016?

Posted on January 06, 2016 by Wendy Krepak

Card Cubby

Last year I saved tons of money at stores, restaurants, movies and my salon..  want to know how?
 
Everywhere I went I asked if they had a loyalty program... ( you would be amazed at how many do!)
 
then I filed the card or number under the coinciding letter in my Card Cubby and I used them!
 
I got discounts, free stuff, free movie tickets and snacks, free dry-cleaning,  free haircuts, free manicures..
 
It was sooooo easy and felt great to save!  Companies know you are more likely not to keep
 
up with their program because you aren't organized enough to keep track of them!
 
Prove them wrong!

Why I LOVE Amazon and how it has saved me TONS of Money!

Posted on October 13, 2015 by Wendy Krepak

O.k.. I admit it.. I love to shop!  Retail Therapy has always made me happy and I often found any excuse to hit the stores.

A year ago I joined Amazon Prime to save money on shipping and it became so much more! Here is an example of how I use Amazon on a regular basis. The other day I decided I needed a 5x7 frame for a picture of my son’s wedding.  Usually I would get in the car and drive to the store.. finding that they didn’t really have what I was envisioning but I would end up purchasing other items that I just couldn’t live without!  Right????  On Amazon I found a huge selection of exactly what I was looking for at a competitive price and my free shipping.

I wasn’t distracted by items I didn’t need..  it took no time at all  to make my selection and arrived at my door! Yes we are all busy and for me the time I save by using Amazon and the money I save by not being tempted to purchase things I don’t need is HUGE!

Now I use that extra time to spend it with my family, a good book or some other form of enjoyment and when I do need some Retail Therapy I can do it for pleasure and not out of need. I know it sounds crazy but Amazon has really made a difference in my life!

Saturday Savings: Give Handmade Gifts

Saturday Savings: Give Handmade Gifts

In this country, we love our gift-giving holidays, especially birthdays and Christmas.

It’s not uncommon for some families to spend $2000-$3000 on gifts. A few hundred on each kid. A few hundred to one another. Then you add up all the miscellaneous gifts you give out – a birthday card to your niece, a tip for your mailman, maybe a Secret Santa at the office – and suddenly you’ve drained your bank account.

By the time many people pay off their holidays, it’s that time a year again, which just creates a cycle of debt. Only the credit card companies win: they get a year’s worth of interest every year.

Handmade gifts are an excellent way to give out gifts all year long while sticking to a reasonable budget. They’re usually inexpensive; they just take time. If you make a multiple pieces or a large batch, you can give them out whenever you like.

For example, you could knit sweaters throughout the year and even personalize them to people’s tastes. You could bake a holiday batch of your famous muffins or cookies or baklava – anything you’re good at. (Keep in mind that people love food).

If you aren’t good at making one thing in particular, you could use this as an opportunity to learn something new each year. Maybe these year everyone gets homemade candles for their birthdays and holidays. Next year learn to make your own homemade soap. The year after, built scrapbooks.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to gift-giving, but you don’t have to break the bank.

Saturday Savings: Subscribe to EVERYTHING

Posted on August 15, 2015 by Wendy Krepak

Subscribe to EVERYTHING

A lot of people get uptight about giving out their email address. They refuse to give it to cashiers or write it down on forms.

I can see the leeriness about giving out your home address, where some unscrupulous people could find you and your family, but your email isn’t a place. Anything that shows up that you don’t want can be deleted, unsubscribed, or marked as spam. If you don’t like it – poof, gone.

I think people should give out their email addresses to any business that wants it. Heck, you could even ask if they have an email list you could join. You never know what that business will send out one day.

Maybe they’re having a special sale but their supplies are limited so they only tell their email list. Or maybe they give their fans a head start on a special promotion. It could be anything, really, but you won’t be able to take advantage of their offer unless you know about it.

A word of advice, though: many people are easily convinced by advertisements. They see something they like that’s “10 off today only” and they can’t stop themselves from buying it.

If you’re one of these people, you’ll need to restrain yourself if you give out your email address a lot. Don’t be fooled by “must act now” marketing pitches. The goal is to be informed so you can buy what you need (even if you buy it a bit ahead of time to capitalize on a sale), not buy things you don’t need.
