25 Ways to Shop Smart

  • Be a smart shopper at outlets. Even if something is cheap, if you never use it, it's just wasted money. Also, take into consideration how far away the outlet is if there's any likelihood of your returning or exchanging the item.
  • Is that sale item really a ''sale''? Comparison shop for prices.
  • Attend a government auction for steals and deals on cars, homes and other merchandise. Sign up for a newsletter of sales alerts, or get more information from the United States Treasury Auctions Page.
