Great infographic from pricegrabber on “digital deal hunting”; mobile shopping; and more. No surprise, online leads the shopping aisle! Their survey indicated that consumers are more budget-oriented this year, and that convenience and accessibility (mobile/online) are important, with 71% saying they’d shop from home.
They offer some helpful tips:
- Take a household inventory. Scan the kitchen, office…for miscellaneous supplies. Take an inventory of the findings, and then compare this to your kids’ supply lists. Editor’s Note: I suggested this idea a while back, and for younger kids, I called the same task a “treasure hunt” – make it fun, and save money! At the same time, you’re setting up your kids’ workstations for the coming year.
- Host a clothing exchange with other parents. Editor’s Note: LOVE this! You’ll may even give – and get – stuff that still has tags on it!
