Don't go after every deal!
Shocked?! Don't be. If I went after every deal that I see, I would not ever be on budget. There are just too many deals to stay within my budget. Plus, I crave peace of mind and I don't find any peace in racing around town trying to find all the deals at multiple stores. No thanks.
Instead, only go after the deals on the products that you love when they are on sale & you can combine the sale with a coupon. It really is that easy!
