An old myth about how to save money is: You should never buy name brands. The idea is that generic products work as well as more expensive brands, or they taste just as good.
There are a couple of problems with that thinking. First, a lot of name brand products do offer better quality than store brands. Second, if you're a seasoned bargain hunter, you know you can buy brand name products as inexpensively as store brands.
One way to do that is with coupons. For starters, take a look at RedPlum. It has coupons for well-known brands, including food, medicine, household cleaners and personal care products. You can also find coupons for restaurants and stores.
Just click on the My City My Deals tab to find them. The best part about RedPlum? You can easily find big savings, not just a few pennies here or there.
Check it out before you go to the grocery store. If you're doing a lot of shopping, you can easily save $10 or more. If you're hitting the mall for clothes, gadgets and dinner, print out coupons of up to 80% off and save $100 or more.
