How to Hunt For Bargains Online Like an Expert

Jasmine Boothey from BargainMums.com.au is a busy mum and bargain huntress extraordinaire. We caught up with her to pick her brain about how she tracks down the best bargains from her dining room table…

Hi Jasmine! Thanks for chatting to Catch Culture! Tell us a little about yourself and your blog…

I’m a mum of two living in Adelaide and I’m a keen bargain hunter.  I studied and worked as an accountant before having kids so I have always loved working with numbers.  I now share my knowledge of how to still live a great life on a budget through my website, Bargain Mums.  Bargain Mums is a mixture of money saving tips and advice, as well as budget recipes made using simple, easy to find ingredients.

When it comes to my online shopping style, I’m definitely a bargain hunter.

I always wait for sales before buying anything.

So what do you look for in a product?

While I might be a bargain hunter, that doesn’t mean I like to buy cheap and nasty.  I always look out for products that are great quality and likely to last the distance.  I would much rather buy a product that costs a little more but will last a long time and actually do the job it’s supposed to do, instead of a cheaper item that will break in a number of months and have to be replaced.

You can actually save money by buying quality.

If you had to choose one thing you love about online shopping what would it be?

I love the convenience of online shopping.  With two kids heading to the shops is often the last thing I feel like doing.  Online shopping means I can shop at any time that suits me, even if it’s late at night, and it doesn’t matter if I get interrupted.

Tell us a little about the bargains you found recently on Catch of the Day?

I found so many bargains when I was searching on Catch of the Day.  I was tempted by the kids toys, and huge range of discounted groceries, but I instead opted for the cookbook sale.  I absolutely love cooking, baking in particular, and I love to collect cookbooks.  I added four new books from Catch of the Day to my collection.

Bargain Mums Shoutout on Instagram “4 cookbooks for only $75, including postage. The cheapest I could find them for elsewhere was just under $100 without postage” #catchofthedayau #bargainmums

The cookbooks I purchased were a fantastic deal.  I paid $75 including shipping for the 4 books.  I then did a little research on the internet to see how the price compares to other online retailers, and the cheapest I could find the same books for elsewhere was $95, and that didn’t include shipping.

You used the app to make your purchases. What stood out to you about using the Catch of the Day app?

I found the process of using the Catch of the Day app very easy.  So many apps out there are very buggy and I just end up jumping on my computer instead, but not this one.  From browsing the individual Catch of the Day sales, to the checkout and payment process, it was all very smooth and easy.

And lastly, to get a little cheeky…where were you when you made your purchases? 

I actually made my purchase at my dining room table while my toddler ate lunch, using my mobile!  That’s the great thing about the app, it’s so easy to shop anywhere, anytime.
