Find & Save - The Latest Way to Shop

I was recently introduced to a new site called FindNSave.com. It is a nifty shopping website, a bit like Pinterest in the way it is set up.


All you have to do is start browsing in your local area; all the major shops are listed. You can narrow your search by type of store, items, or even by brand. You can choose to look at only one store's circular, or at an entire category. I found it to be a great way to look up the current grocery deals in my area. I was able to see in about 10 seconds that Save-A-Lot has a much better deal than CVS on the same Quaker granola bars this week. All the sales lists are right there, without having to go back and forth, and comparison shopping is a snap.

Just like with Pinterest, you can add things to different shopping lists. I have already created four lists and I think I am quickly becoming hooked! A neat feature is that you can choose to look at the lists of others in your community. If you like what you see, you can follow them and add the things you like to your own lists. I never would have seen this adorable Halloween costume otherwise:

The implications for Holiday shopping are awesome! You can browse and find things you like for yourself or others, and then you can check on those things you have saved to your lists to see if they have gone on sale. You can even set alerts to be notified of expiring sales for items you have added to your lists and for notification of similar items going on sale. That is how I found out that both Kmart and Walmart have the Doc McStuffins Check-Up Center, but Walmart has it for about $30 less! (My 5 year old is a HUGE Doc fan!)

This is going on my daughters Christmas list!
My poor husband usually needs all the help he can get when it comes time to buy me a present. I have learned that I need to be very specific in what I tell him I want, but I have never been a fan of mandating what he gets me. It ruins any surprise and makes it less fun. Find & Save could be the answer to that!

Hint - Honey, this is totally cute - AND it's 45% off!

With the ability to make lists, I have already started my own 'Wish List.' All I will have to do is point my husband in the direction of Find & Save, tell him to 'follow' me and he will have tons of options to choose from. I will still be surprised, because I won't know what he has chosen, and he gets all of the pressure taken off of him. It's a win - win!

It works both ways, though. I have also found some great ideas for things to get for him.

A 40% off closeout deal at Sears!
So, as you can see, Find & Save has something for everyone. I love that I am able to easily find the best deal for all the things I am looking for, specific to my area. The fact that I can get ideas just from browsing what others are adding to their lists is such a bonus as well. Too often, I don't really know what I am looking for, until I see it. Now I can just have that "Aha!" moment much easier.

  4. So nice to be able to look for multiple products of different areas of life on one site vs. having to go to many. Will have to put it to use for myself before I go shopping next time.
