Shopping can be fun filled or frustrating. My new series, “Froberg’s Fabulous Finds” is intended to make shopping fun, expedient and value filled for you! After all, who wants to waste their time looking for a bargain or clipping endless newspaper coupons? I ran out of patience clipping coupons years ago. The time spent wasn’t worth the savings for me.
Cartwheel from Target is an alternate way for coupon lovers to save. Print out the coupons you choose from home, or have the cashier scan from your smartphone.Save 5% on your total purchase by using a Target REDcard. Take advantage of their debit card to avoid paying credit card interest.
No More Rack is an online site that offers clothing, electronics, household goods and health and beauty products at up at 90% off. They have a flat shipping rate ranging from free to $4. Their return policy is clear on each item and they ship items earlier than promised. Beyond the Rack is another site I enjoy. They offer name brand clothing for up to 80% off. I have purchased beautiful dresses that fit perfectly from this site. What size the model is wearing is shared and they let you know if the fit is true to size, etc. All items may be returned or exchanged. Online shopping is great for those of us that don’t have time to stand in line at the mall.
Each article in this series will feature a local or national bargain. This Monday, January 26, Chipotle has a special offer. Purchase a sofritas (organic tofu, veggies and spices) item and receive a coupon good for a free menu item on your next business. Click here for a list of Chipotle ingredients.
Stay tuned for upcoming Fabulous Finds. We will cover a vast array of hints, shopping tips and feature local, independent businesses.
