Wouldn’t you like to know how to save money and time shopping online? I know I never manage to have enough of either of them. I seem to be the designated shopper in my home, and I’m in charge of everything from groceries to office supplies. I seem to spend several hours a week shopping, driving from store to store, and looking for sales. If I could come up with a way to save both money and time, I’d be thrilled.

How to Save Money and Time Shopping Online
For me, one of the easiest ways to save time is by shopping online. I am not interested in driving from store to store, dealing with traffic, fighting for parking space or standing in line. Shopping online is the way to go. Of course, it can still be time intensive to shop online. There are so many different sites to look at and it’s hard to stay on top of the deals before they sell out.
Here are a few ways to save money and time shopping online:
- Make a list. Keep an ongoing list of everything that you need to buy online. You can save money on shipping by buying things in the same order rather than paying to have each shipped to you separately.
- Set up automatic subscription purchases. If you buy certain things every month online (coffee, supplements, printer ink) consider setting up an automatic subscription purchase so that it is sent out every month. Some websites offer a discount on subscription purchases.
- Combine a credit card that earns points with a deal. There is no better way to save than by earning points on purchases you make with your credit card and combining that purchase with a deal or coupon to save even more.
- Check for online coupons. Just like using coupons at the grocery store, finding online coupons can save you lots of money.
- Set up a Google alert. Set up a Google alert for purchases that you need to make. You’ll be notified by email when the words you enter appear in Google’s search.
- Use an app like PatPat to find daily deals. Using an app is an excellent way to be notified of the daily deals when they are first released. Quite often, the really good deals sell out quickly because they are so popular.
PatPat’s mission is to provide moms with the same high-quality products they can find elsewhere at prices that are friendly to their wallet. All of their deals are released at 6 AM and there are over twenty each day to choose from at up to 90% off the regular price! I found all sorts of deals when I downloaded PatPat including outerwear to stay warm in the winter, cloth diapers and organizers of all types.
