Recession Tips 3 - 8

  • Explore what you want to buy in stores and then buy it on the Internet at home. Use your search engines.
  • Always negotiate in small business owned stores. You can try in the larger stores but the sales people often have no delegated power to negotiate with you.
  • Ask for discounts for cash.
  • Try home exchange schemes instead of renting villas and apartments.
  • Forget designer labels and go to TK Max, Primark, George at Asda, etc.
  • Don’t buy new. You can buy second hand copies of books from Amazon online that are hugely discounted from the price of new ones.

1st Home Exchange said...

A home exchange is a great way to save money and also make new friends. The savings can be quite substantial since not only do you avoid accommodation costs but you can also swap your car for additional savings.

Since a home provides access to a full kitchen, you're not forced to eat out all the time, avoiding expensive restaurant meals.

If you interested in seeing who's swapping their home, take a look at 1st Home Exchange - Holiday Swaps.
