Hello and Welcome!
In this section of my website, I provide a wealth of information to help people spend less money for products and services that they normally use and also ways to save money along the way. Although I am not a competitive person myself, I love it when I can benefit from others who are competitive. With so much competition from many different companies, organizations, and programs, each one offers a variety of ways to entice you (their potential customer) to buy your products or services from them. I researched different money-saving free opportunities. I have no intention of paying for any program. Therefore, the only tips, tricks, and programs that I use are all totally free. I then found a variety of different ways to combine them to increase the amount of money that I saved and created my own “Combination Technique”. Everything is totally legal.
My goal has always been to help other people realize some of their dreams. There is no feeling that even comes close to the thrill that I get when I hear that someone accomplished one of their significant goals or realized one of their dreams by using some of my tips! I showed some of my friends how I save a bunch of money, and get many things for free, and after they tried some of the things I do, they suggested that I make my Combination Technique available to other people to help them. That’s how my website got started.
Before I will buy anything, I have to know that it will definitely work. I am very careful about spending my hard-earned money. When I do spend it, I want the biggest bang for the buck that I can get. I began researching different programs and different ways to save money as well as using creative ways to pay for products and services. I created a checklist and just kept adding to that checklist as I discovered another way to get more mileage out of my money. Knowing that the food budget is the 3rd most expensive item on anyone’s financial budget (housing and transportation are #1 and #2), I decided to make ways to save significant amounts of money on a food budget available to everyone for free so they can see for themselves that the Combination Technique really does work. I now regularly spend 42% less on my food budget than I did before I started learning about this. I only spend about 15-20 minutes each week preparing for food shopping – and even found ways to minimize my trips to get food to the point where I do the majority of my food shopping one time each month and then just get fresh produce, dairy, bakery items, and only the things that I want super fresh as I need them. One more exception is when stores offer “Loss Leaders”, which are only available for 3 or 4 days. There is no minimum amount of money that I need to spend to get any of the items advertised in a supermarket’s Loss Leader sale, so I do go to the supermarket ONLY for those items.
I decided to let people see for themselves the significant amount of money they can save on their food budget, and, therefore, I offer my 10 Step Supermarket Combination Technique on my website (Sort~N~Save) for free. In fact, there are three things that you can do without any of the 10 steps. Those three things are simply common sense; however, you can check those out at Save Money Now.
The same concept works with Online Purchases, Entertainment & Dining Out, Utilities & Gasoline, and Travel & Vacations; however, although some of the programs and techniques are the same, there are many other tips, tricks, and techniques for each section. Therefore, the entire Combination Technique for each topic available in separate books. In fact, although the 10-Step Supermarket Combination Technique is free, because you have to visit so many webpages to learn the entire process, I decided to put all of that information into one book and just charge a nominal fee for the book. The book also has the checklist that I use in it, which is not available on the website.
I would never even think about going on a vacation or going out to dinner without using the programs first. We have found many, many ways to save money even when we go to major amusement parks. One of our favorite parks is Walt Disney World. As you may know, going to any amusement park is extremely expensive. Although we pay the same entrance fee that anyone else pays, we have found many ways to save money and we always stay at a Walt Disney Resort, which we never would be able to afford without using the tips, tricks, and techniques. My Combination Technique is available in the Travel & Vacations book.
By using all of my Combination Techniques (Supermarket, Online Purchasing, Utility Bills, Entertainment and Dining Out, and Travel & Vacation), I am able to stay at hotels for free, pay zero for restaurant meals, and get discounts on a host of other expenses needed to go on vacation.
To illustrate how much money you can really save, I went on an 11-day vacation in Hawaii in June 2014 and I almost paid for that entire trip. By “almost” I mean I only paid about $750 of my own money and the rest was “paid for” by my Combination Techniques (the airline fare was about $1,200). It took me 1½ years to build the savings, get free gift cards, cash back, rebates, paying for things using creative accounting, etc. We stayed at two great hotels and in fact, the picture on the right is from the balcony of one of the two hotels where we stayed. It was fun seeing a rainbow every day from our hotel room. Now I understand why there is a rainbow on Hawaiian license plates. I took several gift cards that I got for free and I provide a copy of an Avis car rental invoice on my webpage: What Are Combination Techniques). I only paid $8.17 for a full sized rental car with unlimited mileage for one day, which would have been $119.50 without tips and tricks (we had a rental car the entire 11 days) (this was also one of our creative accounting techniques). I also had $900 cash to spend while I was there and I paid for all of my granddaughter’s restaurant and food bills as well as I gave her $200 for souvenirs. Every penny of that money was from using my own tips & tricks that I completed prior to going on that vacation! Were it not for all the money that we were able to save and get in cash back before the trip, we never could have afforded a vacation like that!
The eBooks are available below. As you can see from all of the above, you can quickly and easily recuperate the $24.95. Try any program below and when you prove to yourself that the program really does work, try another program. For major vacations and major purchases, I use all 5 of my techniques.
- Entertainment and Dining Out: $24.95
- Online Purchasing: $24.95
- Travel and Vacations: $24.95
- Utility Bills & Gasoline: $24.95
- 10-Step Supermarket Combination Technique: $4.95
This is not a “get rich quick” website. My goal by making the programs above available to people is to help everyone have more fun with life. If you use even some of the tips, you will be surprised at the money that you never knew you had available to you, that you have left on the table prior to using my Combination Techniques. And all of it is perfectly legal and without spending one single penny more than you do right now (other than to buy the eBook).
FYI: The reason I sell the four programs above is to help supplement my retirement. Additionally, I wrote a book and am in the process of getting it published: “Baby Boomers’ Relocation Guide” (A Step-by-Step Guide for Organizing Any Interstate Move: Before, During, and After the Move) and hope to be able to have that published and available on Amazon.com soon. The book came about when one of the instructors at a blogging class I took found out that I was preparing to move from Delaware to Florida. She suggested that I write a book and include information from the perspective of a Baby Boomer (which I am) regarding what concerns I had, how I resolved those concerns, how I used my Combination Techniques to help pay for the move, etc. When the book is published, I will make that information available on my website.
My Warmest Regards,
