Grocery Shopping

A student myself, I am always on the go between working, going to school and - oh yeah - trying to keep up with my social life. So I constantly find myself low on cash and time, resulting in many greasy fastfood dinners. I know I can do better!

There are different grocery shopping sites that you can use to look at great steals from the grocery stores. My favorite one is called "Wealth=Wise(Investments+Savings)". It tells you about good coupons that you can get in The Gainesville Sun on sunday mornings, and mix them with current sales, usually at Publix. You can even set it to come up with the great deals on your Google page.

If you don't get The Gainesville Sun and don't plan to (you really should), you can look up these coupons online.

Electronics, Bikes, Autos...

Lately I have found that buying used items like tvs, dvds, games, bikes, etc., isn't a bad way to go as long as there is some kind of return policy if they don't work. I have found a couple of sites that are helpful to look for (and sell if you have anything) different items.


I'm not always one to go used on clothing, but there are a couple of places you can go to get used clothing.
