5 Ways to Keep A Financial New Years Resolution

Here are a few simple steps that can help families and consumers ease their financial burden by stretching each dollar further using Internet technology. Specifically, by shopping online and taking advantage of the savings available through online coupons, loose financial habits can be successfully managed.

Starkville, MS (PRWEB) January 4, 2008 — As the New Year approaches it’s wise to adopt a practical plan for implementing those well-meaning New Years resolutions. This year, given recent media attention to the troubled mortgage market, financial goals are expected to be very popular.

With millions struggling financially, it’s a sad commentary on our society that so many haven’t been taught the benefits of basic thrift and fiscal responsibility. However, it’s never too late to learn.

Here are a few simple steps that can help families and consumers ease their financial burden by stretching each dollar further using Internet technology. Specifically, by shopping online and taking advantage of the savings available through online coupons, loose financial habits can be successfully managed.

1. Sit down and make a list of where you shop and what you buy. If you don’t know where and what, you can’t map out a winning strategy that maximizes the advantages of the Internet and coupons. Be warned though, Internet coupons (usually called coupon codes) are like regular coupons so if you buy something just because you “have a coupon” for it, you’re not really saving money.

2. Once your list is completed, plan your shopping needs around an online coupon site such as Shopping-Bargains.com. There you can research which stores have coupon codes and what discounts are available to you. Most coupon sites have a search box and shopping categories to help you quickly find the store or product you are looking for so you can match it with a money-saving coupon or discount.

3. Learn to be flexible. If the store that you normally buy from doesn’t have a coupon code savings then consider shopping at a different store or buying a different brand that has a coupon code discount and costs less. You may not always get the exact item that you’re used to but the purpose of online coupons is to save money and that you will do.

4. Watch one or more online coupon sites for new deals and coupon code specials. The good ones are updated on a daily basis. You won’t find something that you should take advantage of everyday, but watch long enough and you’ll find some really great bargains that are on your list. Here’s a tip: Take advantage of customized email newsletters and Web 2.0 tools such as RSS feeds and let technology notify you when there is something new that interests you.

5. Create a savings group with co-workers, family or friends so you have several sets of eyes watching for great deals. The more people looking for savings and encouraging each other to be frugal, the better your chances are you won’t overspend and no bargain will be overlooked.

Wise spending is always a good New Years resolution. You’ll be amazed at how much money you’ll save in 2008 when you follow these five steps. And with a plan in place and online coupon codes on your side, this is one resolution you can stick with all year.
