Like many of you, I love to shop and, like everyone, I love to save money. That means I'm always on the lookout for great deals at my favorite stores. I sign up for every deal email I can, and regularly pop onto RetailMeNot and other coupon sites.

I also keep a close eye on the calendar, and not just for the big shopping holidays like Memorial Day.
