Savvy shoppers vs. strategic stores (anytime)

March 13, 2009

After tallying up the checkbook this month, I’m in the mood to talk about shopping — that is, how to save money while doing it. I’ve pointed out some helpful sites in the past, but today’s link is to a more general article about nagivating everything from grocers to coffeeshops to big box stores. If you’re aware of the tactics they use to encourage you to spend money, you’ll be more likely not to fall for them, right? After reading “Retailers’ bag of tricks includes smell and lighting,” from The Daily Press in Newport News, Va., you’ll be savvier about shopping sales, too.
