If you're not one of those people who "seizes the moment" when you have the chance to save money, it might pay to establish some new bargain-hunting habits. When you adopt the mindset of a frugal shopper, you'll become more effective at stretching your household budget and having more money left over after paying the bills. One costly mistake a lot of people make is to wait until they urgently need something before buying it. Under those conditions, the pressure is on and your choices for saving money are usually limited. If your priorities include saving money, getting the best deal, or stocking up for future needs, then buying things when they're on sale is often the way to make your funds go farther. Here are a few examples of opportunities that can pass you by if you don't take advantage of them while you can:

  • Going out of business sales: There are a lot of reasons a store might be closing its doors, but in many cases that closure could mean substantial savings for you and your family. If the manager's objective is to liquidate as much of the store's inventory as possible, then you could easily negotiate incredible bargains. Although a store's signs and ads might be more promotional than factual ("Everything must go! No reasonable offer refused!"), if they're selling things you need or anticipate needing, it's probably worth stopping by and checking out the sale.
  • End of season sales: When a season or major holiday comes to an end, you may not be in the mood to buy a discounted snow-blower, lawn mower, or Christmas decorations. However, if you can afford it and you know it's something you're going to need next year, it may make sense to buy it now and enjoy the savings later.
  • Scratch and dent sales: Consumer products like household appliances can be quite expensive if you don't look for sales, compare prices, and take advantage of money-saving opportunities. If a retailer is willing to reduce the price of an appliance, a furniture set, or a piece of home office equipment because of a cosmetic flaw or some other minor issue that won't affect it's performance or quality, you might be able to get an exceptionally good deal on the item. Sometimes asking a store manager if they have any unadvertised discounts or distressed merchandise can result in unexpected savings.
  • Surplus merchandise, overstocks, clearance sales, and closeouts: Theoretically, you should be able to save a bundle of money when you shop at stores advertising clearance sales and surplus inventory. Although results may vary depending on the nature of the sale, it often pays to keep an eye out for clearance or surplus inventory sales when hunting for good bargains.
Saving money begins with a certain frame of mind and a strong desire to stretch your household budget. It just takes a little determination, research, and advance planning to ferret out an assortment of worthwhile sales, discounts, and money-saving opportunities.

Oh, the basement. How is it that all of the unused items seem to end up here? If your basement is like most it is filled with items long since unused but you still can’t quite let go of the boxes stacked on boxes. If going down into your basement to find what you are looking for is a chore keep reading to learn how to create a more organized storage space that makes finding things a snap. Start by doing a major clean out of everything in your basement. Sell or donate anything you no longer have a use for but have put off getting rid of. By doing so you will give your stuff a second life and clear up extra room for a more effective storage system. Organize what you do decide to keep in “like” piles to make putting them in their future assigned places a cinch. Have labels prepared for each of these piles and come up with category names for each one. Next, you will want to invest in shelving units and plastic bins if you don’t already have some to protect items you will be storing from any potential flooding. Consider shelves made of metal as wood shelves are prone to absorbing moisture and warping. You may also want to add a dehumidifier to control the levels of moisture in the air, which can lead to damage to the items you are storing. If possible plan for storage around the utility area while keeping all paths to switches and appliances free of clutter. If your basement is unfinished and you have a plan to remodel in the future this will keep costs lower as you only need to section off one area instead of two. When you start placing your bins on the shelves keep the priority levels of their contents in mind. High use items should be more easily accessible than the lower priority ones. Ensure that when labeling boxes they are in a spot that is visible from just a quick glance. You could also add a list of the contents of each box on the label for when a category requires more than one box. Extra steps for the dedicated: Maximize available space in your basement by utilizing the space under the stairs. Adding shelves here will give you extra storage space that is easy to access. Label switches, breakers, and shut off valves and hang up a flashlight in an easily accessible space for power outage preparedness. You may also want to buy plastic bins in various colors to color code your items categories and make finding them easy with just a glance. You might think re-organizing your basement is the last thing you want to spend your weekend doing. However, with a proper plan and the right supplies you can create an organization system in your basement that makes finding stored items a snap and an enjoyable process!
