Quick & Simple Online Shopping

I recently clued Mom in on how quick & simple it can be to save whilst shopping online. A few easy steps that are so easy, even my mom will use it. In fact, it saved her $28 on a pair of shoes that she'd spotted in-store at Naturalizer for $79 - needless to say, Mom is now convinced this is well worth her trouble.

Step 1. Shop at desired retailer. (For shoes & apparel, I'd recommend trying on in-store to be sure of sizing - it will save you the trouble of returning or keeping things you will never wear.)
Step 2. Check at least 3 coupon sites for discount codes, a few I've found useful:,, and
Step 3. Plug in as many discount codes as you can find and/or that the retailer will allow at check-out & enjoy the pleasure of knowing you've saved!

I also like to check on the forums at for any hot deals on specific things I'm searching for, e.g. tools, hoodies. Be sure to register & "rep" any good deals you find on SlickDeals & give feedback whether a coupon code works on RetailMeNot - it helps maintain the integrity of good finds!
