Deals, Deals, Deals

I've been reading a lot about saving and the different little ways you can do to achieve it. One of the ways is to stay frugal; to always try your best to be frugal.  And also, you must plan the purchase. Planning in the sense that you will know when you need to purchase it and how much you need to save in order to purchase it. Most importantly, you need to pay them in cash. :) 

However, it can get challenging to find tips here on the web that can easily be applied to Philippine setting particularly Cebu. So let me just share some discoveries I wish I have discovered or tried out before.

But before I proceed, let me just give you a background. I was not out for a shopping spree. Haha! I was out to get the best deals on the things we NEED (and have saved for these since I started this journey):

1)  Formal Shoes for the husband—his current work only requires casual attire and present no need for formal shoes. But one of our actions plans for this year requires him to wear business attire and so formal shoes. So be it.

2) Bag for my eldest daughter—her bag in 1st grade was not big enough for her. There was not enough room to keep things organized for a 1st grader.

3) Bag for my youngest daughter—she'll now be going to school this year as a pre-schooler. The plan was for this to be optional. If we can save on #1 and #2, then we'll get this. hehe.

 SMAC Deals

I really felt cheated in all those months that I just ignored the emails from my SM Advantage card. LOL! If I haven’t gone on this journey, I wouldn't have paid attention to it at all. :hide:
Anyhow, if you haven’t tried this, here is what you do:

1)      Visit
2)      Purchase the deal. (I paid through debit card.)
3)      Print the voucher and present it to the cashier after you’ve picked up the item at your selected SM branch.


SAVINGS: 50% from its original price


I’m sure we’ve all heard about AVON before. It’s no surprise they have amazing deals. Guess what? I became an authorized dealer yesterday. So if you’re also interested in becoming a dealer yourself for business or personal use, or you simply want to order an item for you or for someone (I can wrap it as a gift for free!), please leave me a comment and contact info. =)


SAVINGS=BONUS: 42% (if i bought them from department stores. Yes, I check out the prices as we plan and save for them.) = lunch bag with utensils, etc + youngest daughter's bag!

Hooray! hihi. How are you doing on your end? :)
