How to shop online! Best tricks and tips + how to earn money shopping!

AMAZING tips! for saving money, finding the right thing, and making money shopping online. From

Ahhh. Spring, summer, GLORIOUS time of year. Time for barbecues, swimming…and shopping! If you remember, The “J” months (January and June/July) are the best times of year to shop. You will find better deals in the J months than Black Friday, most times!

For me, I'm a huge fan of shopping online…since hauling 5 kids to a store of any kind is basically my personal idea of torture. I've had an influx of questions lately about shopping online, and how to do it without overspending or buying the wrong thing, so today I thought I'd share my best tips and tricks with you!

As I've been saying for about 8,000 years, remember to sign up for Ebates BEFORE you shop online, though. You're WASTING MONEY if you don't! See why, and lots of other tips, in the video!

Woo hoo! So hopefully that helps you be able to shop online WITHOUT buying a bunch of expensive lemons.

Need something you can't really afford right now? No problem, just remember my 3 month rule. Just wait a little bit and set money aside, then you'll be ready to pounce when the price is right.

    Thanks, Jordon, for all your helpful tips! As well as following you for a long time, I’ve been using Ebates a little while now, but knowing about the in-store option is awesome.

    I love the way you decorate your home–my family just moved this past weekend into our first house! We’re trying to do careful planning and to spend our money decorating slowly, and I’d be very interested to hear how you planned your decorating all to fit a theme! And just how you planned in general. Picking a certain style and colors and sticking to them is hard for me, haha! So, buying a little at a time is tough when I want to jump to the finish line and see how nice a style looks in a room (before I change my mind), if you know what I mean. So, hearing your experience would be great!

    Before you buy check for a discounted gift card. The item then ends up being 5% or up 20% off additionally. Make sure to go through Ebates to get 1% back.

    Thank you for the great tips for online shopping. I have been ill, so shopping online has been much easier than sending my hubby. Ebates did me good this past Christmas.
