Become a savvier shopper with these tips and tricks from shopping experts.
“Studies show that consumers tend to spend less when they’re using cash because spending is more tangible when you see those dollars leaving your wallet. Sharpen your negotiating skills; cars aren’t the only big-ticket purchase you can haggle over. Negotiate a better price on mattresses, large household appliances and furniture. To up your chance of scoring a bargain, point out any defects or cosmetic damage.”
