Finding Deals Online

My husband is famous for finding great deals. I've never met another person who can negotiate like he can, or can save money like he does. Our friends and family come to him before major purchases knowing he'll be able to save them big bucks.

Recently he taught me a cool trick for finding deals online, so I thought I'd pass on one of King Charming's deal finding secrets. For many of you, this probably isn't new, but for those of you who are less tech savvy like me, here's what you do:

1. Do a Google search for the item you are looking to purchase.

2. When you get the results of your search you will see small links along the top of the list that say "Web" and "Shopping" (There might be other links, also, like "image" or "video")

3. If you click the "Shopping" link, you'll get a list of comparison prices on the item you are looking for. I was surprised to see huge differences in prices from one vendor to another on the same item.

Let me know if you find a great deal! Happy last minute Christmas shopping!

I am definitely going to try this, but I also want to make a worry box as you mentioned in your next post. What a great idea. Your little miracle is so handsome too. Happy holidays!

Another way to find great savvy deals online is visiting some voucher code websites here is one from the UK http://www.savvydealsonline.co.uk they have some online stores that will deliver to the USA and other countries. Whats also good with shopping from the UK is teh exchange rate and the week pound you are sure to get more for your dollar/euro

forgot to mention these voucher code websites will offer exlcusive discount codes that can sometimes entitle you to recieve upto 30% on items

I've done this before. It's super convenient. I did a lot of online shopping this year so I did't have to waddle through the mall at Christmas time lol. We got your card in the mail yesterday! We aren't sending any out this year. We decided to wait until the twins were born and then send out a card with a picture of all of us on it for an announcement. Hopefully we get around to that!! Have a Merry Christmas!
