The Internet Can Save you Bundles
The past 6 months have seen some amazing online developments that are helping consumers save money on all sorts of purchases.
One of the best for online bargains, apart from www.ValueIreland.com obviously, is the Boards.ie Bargain Alerts forum where users log on daily to share information of where the best bargains can be found around the internet. There’s a huge range of bargains available on the site each week.
Before doing your weekly food shopping, you should make sure you check out the websites of the grocery retailers who all provide weekly updates on their special offers. Some, including Aldi, Lidl and Dunnes Stores, will even e-mail you weekly with their offers.
One of my favourite sites at the moment is CheapEats.ie. It’s relatively new, but it already has some fantastic information on how to get great food in these tough times. The site provides updates on special restaurant and shops food offers available around the country.
The site also has some great money saving top tips on how to cook for yourself.
The ValueIreland.com links page has more sites that will help you save even more money using the web.
