Today this type of saving is done for us. Collecting Air miles, Credit cards that pay cash dividends, and cash back websites. Last year there was a great bank advertisement where 2 women were shopping and one used a bank card with Cash Back Rewards. As they left the store the other woman said “What did you get ? Two Dollars? ” the other replied, “Yes, what did you get?”

Want to access American websites that don’t ship to Canada?
There are many companies that will provide you with a U.S. PO box
to use for your order. They will then reship it to your home in Canada.Some sites to check out:
Living in a rural area?Online shopping can be a challenge if you have slow internet service. Using an online Mall like yhoti.com will help you find retailers quicker without long searches. It also gives you access to some amazing products that you won’t find in your local stores.
Time Management that pays cash.Many people like to shop at lunch, but find it very rushed and it means they have to skip eating. With yhoti you can browse your favourite store ahead of time to see if they have items you like. Then check out the store at lunch. But save time by skipping the long checkouts and order online later when you have time. This also works great if you work late and stores are closing. yhoti never closes and you also get Cash Rewards on your purchases.

yhoti - Notes from the Mall: Admin Assistant finds alternative to Air Mile Poin...: Admin Assistant may be a better title than Secretary, but it doesn't fit the job that they do. The ones that I have worked with did all ...
but it doesn't fit the job that they do. The ones that I have worked with
did all of the admin, they didn't assist on it. They also helped train new employees, organized meetings, managed the office and booked travel.
Booking travel was a tough one. On one hand most travel was booked (or changed) last minute. Finding room on planes or in hotels that were already overbooked was a challenge. On the other hand even if it is work related, booking travel to a great place for someone else is not fun. It makes you feel like you are missing out, and this happens a lot.
It also is a bit annoying that those who are taking the flights and are likely paid much more money than you, are collecting air miles points on those flights. Enough for a few great trips a year - with their family!

Shopping with young children can be a fun experience. Giving them rides with the stroller or in a shopping cart with so much to look at. I always liked to see little toddlers walking in a huge Mall.
But shopping with small children also has it’s issues – especially in winter. Juggling kids, diaper bags, and strollers in a crowded parking lot. Putting on and taking off snowsuits and winter clothes at every stop. Trying not to drop mitts and hats as you navigate through stores. Keeping an eye on kids and strollers and purchases at the washroom or food court. Trying to get everything done before the kids wear out.
When my kids were young we started to see drive thru’s expand from fast food to coffee shops and banks. It made running errands a lot easier.
But now online shopping provides a much easier option. While the kids play at home you can shop online and have everything delivered to your home. The time it save is incredible, the internet definitely provides stress free shopping for people with young children.
