Frugal Toad Tip
A great way for saving money on major purchases is to use a price comparison website like Pricegrabber.com to find the best deal. You can sign up for email alerts that will alert you when the product you are shopping for reaches your preassigned price target. An added benefit is that by taking the time to research the best price also gives you time to rethink your purchase decision and eliminates the temptation to make an impulse purchase.
