If you are looking for shoes, a new grill or school supplies for your kids, you can find them online at a steep discount. This may be true even if you go to a retailer’s website as opposed to visiting a wholesale or outlet store website.

Another idea when trying to save money while shopping online is to use auction sites. Auction sites will put items up for bidding at prices that could be as much as 90 percent lower than retail. This may allow you to buy a big screen television for pennies on the dollar or buy a new computer that you otherwise may not have been able to afford.

Using sites such as BuyMerchant.com can provide you with more value for your dollar. When you are able to spend less on the things that you use each day, you can put more money into a savings account or into a college fund for your kids.

Now, I don’t know with you since we all have different preferences but I am picky when it comes to gift cards. Any gift card that I can get, I am totally fine with it and I tend to be picky in terms of what to use the gift cards for. They are not free anytime, right?

I tend to choose items that I can use for the long term like clothing and apparel. However, food is also not far behind ;).

Kids Academy created a gorgeous app for kids catered to kids 5 and under. Sure! they have other kids games and while some may think this game is no different from its other kids apps, the puzzles are entirely different.

One thing is consistent though: the beautiful graphics and visuals keep kids entertained, curious and enjoy playing it!

Kids Puzzles preschool math games for girls and boys

This kids game devoted purely for math is the perfect companion for kids starting to learn math. Who’s to say kids can’t get numbers right even at such a young age?

I told my relative to have them try out the app for their kids and guess what happened next? Totally kept looking for the iPad because they enjoy solving the number puzzles in the game.

All these 3 apps are for iOS based devices and I believe that a more enjoyable experience for your kids playing these apps is to install them in tablets. iPhones or iTouch devices are too small and can strain their eyes at such a young age trying to focus because of the small screen.
