Do you know what you’re shopping for this weekend? Every year, shoppers often times spend days before the actual event to scour through the deals, clip coupons and make their list. When it’s time to go shopping, there are several essential mobile phone apps you should have installed or make sure you have the latest update for. Here are five key apps for saving time and money this weekend:

Find&Save just went from saving you money to giving that money right back to you! As you probably know, Find&Save helps shoppers find the latest sales and coupons at nearby stores, based on their current location.

Now, they are saving Christmas! The recently launched Cash Dash feature in the Find&Save mobile phone app enables shoppers to get up to $50 cash back after just one purchase in a store. Other shopping apps require consumers to make several shopping trips and wait for points to add up, and/or require users to buy specific items for cash back.

There will be multiple Find&Save Cash Dash promotions through the end of the year, potentially giving each Find&Save shopper the opportunity to get hundreds of dollars back.

School office supplies.

I love notebooks, and pens, and printed folders – colorful office supplies in general. My childhood love of stationary and school supplies has stuck with me and results in an extra set of everything in my home office. As you can imagine, I love Back-To-School Sales!

From cheap go-to items, to new releases of different color patterns of everything office related, I enjoy hitting up Staples, OfficeMax/Office Depot, Target and others this time of the year.

photoAfter browsing through the weekly ads on Find&Save, my first stop was OfficeMax. They had a great sale on all of the basics for my son’s high school supply list. He ended up having to leave the store to go get a bite to eat so I can continue to browse around in peace.

From one-cent notebooks to a colorful array of Sharpie markers that were 50 percent off, I had great time adding…

For every shopper that sings the merits of online shopping, there’s the customer that would rather spend money at local retail shops. But why? asks the online shopper. Don’t you like dragging items into a digital cart while wearing pajamas instead of, say, trying to wrangle a shopping cart through a brick-and-mortar store on a Saturday morning? About trying to find a decent parking space? To this the in-store shopper says: I still love shopping in the store much better than online. Let me count the ways.
