Bargains & Budgets

by Michele Pesula Kuegler on October 26th, 2011

With three teens and a tween, there is a good amount of focus on shopping and spending in our house.  I am pleased that all of them understand the value of saving and budgeting.  When shopping for school clothes, they know that not only are we looking for items that are attractive and fit well but also items that are fairly priced.  They also have learned that better prices equal more items bought.

With our economy in the shape that it is, there are many more families that have tighter budgets.  It is no longer a “buy what you want, charge it, and pay for it later” mentality.  However, when you are raising a family, you can’t just skip on shopping.  Kids grow or wear out their clothes, and items need to replaced.  For the adults, even though you may not have a growth spurt or wear a hole in your pants during recess, you also need to replenish your wardrobe from time to time.

Our shopping site, Go Shopping Info, has been refocused to help with these purchases.  We’ve redirected our vision from shopping for the fun of it to shopping with saving in mind.  Of course, that still can be fun; we simply have added the benefit of making it budget-friendly shopping.  Additionally, Go Shopping Info now publishes our Shopping Secrets column on a weekly basis. There’s no need to wait for biweekly hints on how to make better use of your family’s budget, it’s available every Wednesday.

Before you take your next trip to the mall, give Go Shopping Info a peek to find some money-saving suggestions.
