Paying Full Price
With so many ways to find deals these days - signing up for exclusive emails, following retailers on social media, finding coupons or discount codes, and, heck, even Groupon! - it's almost physically painful to pay full price for anything. Try finding discounts, and it never hurts to comparison shop and then use the competitive information you dig up to your advantage.
Another old standby? eBay. We've found killer deals on eBay and you can read reviews, so it's more reliable than sites like Craigslist. Talk about an oldie but goodie!
