Living In Financial Excellence Episode 32: 6 Tricks Retailers Use On Us to Get Consumers to Buy More. Nov 3, 2010.

Janelle is back in the studio today as we embrace the fall and prepare for Thanksgiving. We’re dedicating episodes 32 and 33 to saving money on shopping so we can be more thankful when Thanksgiving is here, and less stressed on the shopping that has become more important to our society than Thanksgiving.

Show notes:

– We answer a mailbag question about how to rent a car without a credit card.

– We discuss the tricks of the trade that retailers use to get consumers to stay in the store longer.Matt & Janelle Recording the Financial Excellence Podcast More time in the store = more money spent.

– Learn how product placement and display ads get us spending more.

– Shrinking products, growing shopping carts, food courts, and buzz words all have an impact on how much we spend. Even when we think we’re saving, many times we’re not.
