What does it mean to be a smart shopper?
Here’s the thing: It’s not always being an extreme couponer, buying in bulk, or stacking your gift cards.
Being a smart shopper can mean using technology to get discounts on things you need, buying sunglasses or winter coats at the end of the season, or avoiding being tempted by sale items (just because they’re on sale).
In this episode, Trae Bodge, a shopping expert who has appeared on the “Today” show and CNBC, and many others, talks about shopping lists, bad deals, smart strategies, avoiding aggressive ads, using credit cards wisely, and how to shop at big box stores without wasting your money.
