Frugal Ways to Save Money: Home Appliances Sale

Spring is a time of new beginnings.  For many, it’s also the time when a large income tax refund comes in.  Some may use those extra funds to pay off debt, to plan for a much needed and deserved vacation, or to put toward savings.  This year we plan to use those funds to replace our dishwasher and stove.  After over ten years, both of these appliances have outlived their usefulness.  The dishwasher leaks and our last attempt to repair it proved worthless.  As for the stove, it’s an older electric burner version which I have dreamed of replacing with a ceramic flat top since we moved in a number of years ago.  It looks like it’s time to check out the home appliances sales.

The one hurdle we have to overcome is the cost involved in replacing these appliances.  If you’ve been appliance shopping recently, you know they aren’t cheap.  There are also so many different models, styles, colors, and finishes to choose from.  All the appliances in our kitchen are white so making a decision about color is already done.  I have no intention of replacing white appliances with stainless steel and then waiting to save up enough to replace the rest of them.  So be it … white appliances are what we will be buying.

Now that the color decision is made, it’s time to explore our options.  Personally, I prefer to check prices online and then go to the store to actually see the product.  My husband, on the other hand, wants nothing to do with looking online at anything and insists we have to travel to at least three stores to physically view each and every option.  It looks like I’ll be doing my online research when he’s not around so I can be armed and ready when we arrive at the store.

In order to get the best price on what we want, I’ll be checking for sales which can be combined with coupons.  My favorite places to find coupons on purchases like appliances are at store sites and  Before heading out to the store, I’ll make a list of those appliances that are in our price range together with a list of the coupons I’ve been able to locate.

I’ve found that you don’t always have to have a coupon in your hand to get the savings offered.  These days most stores will honor coupon codes which in the past were reserved exclusively for online purchases.  One of my favorite sayings is “it never hurts to ask.”  Most of the time when I ask about using an online coupon code for an in-store purchase, the salesperson has been amenable to at least trying to enter the code in the store.  This has saved us tons of money over the years.

Are you in the market for new appliances?  If so, let us know how you go about saving money on your purchase.  We love to pass these tips on to our readers!

I work as a real estate paralegal at a family-friendly law firm. Raised in the suburbs of Washington, DC, I graduated from UVa and met my husband, Mike, in our hometown of Alexandria, VA. Fourteen years ago, we took a leap of faith and moved our family out of the rat race to a small, rural community near Charlottesville, VA. Mike is my "OOH RAH man" and career real estate broker who is now enjoying life on a bucket list. We have three children, Bubba, (who married the girl of his dreams), Sissy, and Missy (now an "only" child). In the last few years, we've been blessed with two grandchildren (a girl and a boy). I love a bargain and have gained a reputation over the years for being quite the "coupon queen."


  1. I’ll bet you’ll love that new dishwasher! I have found that stores will frequently match competitors prices, especially if it’s another local store. And then you can also ask for free delivery or an extra 10% off. They usually have some negotiating room. Have fun shopping!

  2. Another idea to get an addition 10% off… the post office always has the packets of discounts for when you relocate. You can always stop by there and ask for one. It contains a 10% off coupon for Lowe’s.
