I’m always on the look out for a bargain. Even when I’ve been more flush with cash than I am now, I’ve always been keen to get good value for money. It’s good to have a budget, even when you have a lot of money. You should always know what your expenses are and where your money is going. This is a smart way to manage your finances and keep yourself in check. Any money I can save is available then for me to use for something else and there is always something that needs buying or spending on when you are a homeowner with a 10-year-old boy. If I need a particular item I tend to shop around and when I have found something I am happy with, I look for a way to get it for less.
Shopping around is great if you are buying a branded product as it’s very easy to compare prices and seek out a deal, but not so much when you want something from a particular store, say an own brand item. One of my favourite stores is Debenhams because I find the quality is good; there’s a great range of styles; and the pricing is reasonable (they also do some good sales). If I am buying online (and I often am if I am looking for a bargain, as I don’t always have time to get to the shops), I start to look for a discount code when I have found what I want to buy. Groupon have some good Debenhams discount codes available. It isn’t really that much extra effort to find a code that you can use to reduce the price a little. It only takes a few more seconds, but it’s certainly worth it because you’ll have more money in your pocket.
