During your shopping trip, remember that many stores have a policy of offering customers the sale price for an item the day before and day after the sales begins and ends. In most instances, you just have to ask!
When you are ready to hit the stores, shop the clearance section first. This is a handy tip for in-store or online purchases. By checking out the clearance section in the store or on a Web site, you can save up to 75% on some items. Clearance racks are usually found in the back of the store or at the bottom of the store's home page. It's worth searching for --- you'll be shocked by the money you can save.
