How-To Shop Strategically

Today, Everyone Needs to Shop Strategically – We’re Here to Help!

Most of us learned how to shop and budget in times of great prosperity but the world as we knew it looks completely different today.  Everything has changed.

Many people have faced periods of unemployment in the past several years.  Those who kept their jobs found that they were required to work twice as hard for less money AND face the daily fear of losing their jobs as layoffs plague businesses.

So many organizations have changed as they struggle to stay afloat.  In many cases it has become increasingly difficult to work in our corporate culture today, knowing that – as they say on one of my favorite shows, Dance Moms ’everyone is replaceable!’

And we found that we wanted to find a way to help.  So we created the Strategic Shopping Network, a platform to help our readers become more strategic when they shop.  After all, we work a lot harder for our money, today – shouldn’t we be more  strategic about how we spend it?

We’ll begin by giving you a few of the best deals we see this week locally.  Hopefully you’ll find a few things on the list that you need and can score for a very low price or even for free!

This week (8/26 – 9/1/12) some of the best deals we saw were at the local drug stores: CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens.  

Here are a few deals to get started.  You can see the entire list at the Strategic Shopping Network’s Deals of the Week Feature.
