I keep 2 windows open at once.I hate waiting while Cindy Crawford drinks her water & runs out the door with her dogs. So, while I'm on SP, I also keep a 1 minute Facebook game open & when something is advertising or loading, I play a 1 minute game.
This way, I don't hurl my computer at the wall or avoid getting on SP at all because it is too boring with all the waiting.

Cut out store ads to ensure you get the right price.
Just because an item is on sale in the ad doesn't mean the store has the correct sale price in their computer system. When checkout clerks are instructed to be as fast as possible it is easy to miss if you've been charged the wrong price. When you are buying a sale item from an ad, cut the ad info out and bring it with to prove to the clerk if it rings up wrong. Even if only 1 item in 100 is wrong, it still might cost you significantly.
Yesterday I was glad I did this when a store didn't give me a $1 coupon off my next purchase I was due. I showed them the ad cutout, showed them what I bought, and they corrected it. It might have been $1 now, but it can add up quickly!
Rather than shopping at several store to save, circle items you need in each ad take it to a store that honor ads/sells. Most store in my area honor other ads.224
This will save you time,gas and yes money. you save money by not going to several store picking up on other items. I know when i use to shop several stores i ended up buying more than what I went in for.
