The Sunrise team is working to save you money. If you are a "Type A" person - a planner and an organizer - you can take these tips to the bank.
This first tip will save you time and money. Instead of hitting the grocery store a couple times a week, plan your meals for the entire week and make one stop. That could save you a few gallons of gas and money on splurge items.
Our savvy shopper points out, "A lot of people will go to the grocery store three and four times a week. So if you're spending ten bucks extra on impulse purchases that's an extra 30 - 40 bucks a week."
Next tip: take a cue from UPS and cut out left turns. You will definitely have to pre-think your errands, but left turns mean more waiting at corners and lights and that wastes gas.
The third money saving tip may be the easiest idea of all: shop at home. Most retailers offer the same sales online. If you do have to pay for shipping - it might not cost you more than a few trips to the mall.
