Project for Help Others Save While Shopping

Overview

This guide was created for you to help others save real money on everyday shopping. By following a few simple steps you can teach others to take actions that will save them money – a key service during a challenging economic time. This guide will also help you make others more aware of consumer protections that assure that you get what you’re paying for.

The Problem

Many people are too busy or too distracted to ensure they are getting the best prices when they shop for consumer goods, like groceries, clothes and household items. Also, some retailers – on purpose or inadvertently – overcharge customers or provide less product than advertised for a given price.

The Solution

By sharing knowledge about how to find the best prices on everyday goods, and how to spot and challenge questionable pricing tactics, you can help others save money while shopping.

Time Commitment

As little as 5 minutes to print and share tip sheets; up to a few hours to help people find Internet coupons and regulatory resources.

Special Considerations

None.

Who can do this?

Everyone who shops.
