How to save money while shopping?
I’m gonna use the examples of dvds as this is main thing that I buy online, other than mostly essentials and some grocery items and the occasional book or shirt. So I do buy a few dvds of my fav tv shows and movies and I usually do so online. Now, since sometimes the rates in India are higher or I just can’t find the less popular movies or tv shows on Indian sites, I shop internationally.
My main choices for shopping online for dvds are Amazon UK, eBay UK, eBay CA & eBay. In that order. If I am trying to find a dvd box set or a season of a tv series, I will open all 4 and check and search for items that can be shipped to India. I then compare the prices for them on each site. Ofcourse I will also check the rates in INR so I can make a decision as to which one is cheapest for me including shipping to India.
This way I ensure that I get the cheapest option for the dvd or dvds that I want to get and not pay a huge price for it. Sometimes in India the cost of a dvd set is very high and when I get it from ebay UK or Amazon UK, it is much cheaper. There are a couple of sets that I would have to had paid atleast Rs.7000 or more just to get them in India. Now that is savings.

So although he is a player that I believe is one of the very best not just currently but of all time, I think what Cristiano Ronaldo did was a big publicity stunt. If you happened to have missed the viral video, Ronaldo had moved two bottles of Coca-Cola during a press conference on June 15 and then raised a bottle of water, encouraging people to drink water instead. He smiled while he did this, showing that he was snubbing the beverage giant and showing water as a better option to drink.
This is a man who, yes has made millions because he is a very talented, determined and skilled footballer & athlete and winning trophies but – he has also made an exorbitant amount of money from the various endorsements he has done over the years. Both as part of a club – Manchester United & Real Madrid are amongst the very biggest clubs in the world – as well as for his home country Portugal and as his own personal brand & image. Infact Ronaldo has also had a endorsement deal with Coca Cola among other brands. KFC too! Isn’t that a little hypocritical of a man who has endorsement the company before and taken a nice big chunk of change from them?
Well Coca Cola, I may not be star material and will probably (one can only hope) get the sort of endorsement deals that Ronald gets, but I do love me some coke. Especially when I mix it with my rum – white or dark – and with my vodkas. They make it so delicious.
