This week in deals: Macy's, Rocket Lawyer & more

Now that the Republican National Convention and the Democratic Convention are over, let's focus on how much money we can save.  Truth be told, a lot of people were tuning into the convention hoping for answers about their financial future.

If there is one thing we can do for ourselves, it's to be financially conscious.  And one way to go about it is to start changing our shopping habits.  Whether it's cutting back, using coupons or only shopping the sale and clearance sections, we ultimately have the power and choice on how we are going to spend our hard earned money.

To make things easier for you, I've compiled a list of the 5 best deals on our site this week.  We hope to make your shopping experience easier, save you time and ultimately empower you to take charge of your financial future.

Here are this week's top 5 deals:

Deal #1: I LOVE Macy's!  The reason I love them is that after you stack their sale prices with their coupons, you really get a great bargain.  Sometimes you leave feeling that you've somehow robbed them because of the low price you just scored (I've gotten almost 90% off in the Housewares and Apparel department before).  Right now, Macy's has a coupon for extra 20% off most departments sitewide.  Expires 09/16/2012.

Deal #2: Are you in need of a lawyer's advice or help?  Rocket Lawyer has a 50% discount on your first month's purchase until 09/30/2012.  This is a good way to get help when you need it with a network of on-call attorneys.  I'm thinking about making a purchase myself because I am receiving ridiculous or shall I call "fraudulent" tickets for parking in my driveway (and no my car is not hitting the sidewalk, pavement, garbage can, etc.).

Deal #3: It's that time of the year again when Payless offers Buy 1, Get 1 50% off on everything, except for their green tag items.  Every time this sale occurs, I stock up on everything from socks, shoes and even children's umbrellas.  They also sell a line of ballet slippers and tap shoes, so get your savings on!  Limited time offer.

Deal #4: Are you still on the hunt for some great deals on clothing, shoes, accessories and more from a name brand you trust?  Timberland has a coupon for 40% off everything sitewide.  This is the best deal I've seen for them, so use it or lose it!  Expires 9/17/2012.

Deal #5: Before thinking about your holiday binges, think about starting your new years resolutions early.  Don't wait until 2013 to get your weight and health in check.  Right now, save up to 40% off your plan with this coupon from Weight Watchers.  If you've been thinking about getting healthy, this is definitely the time to do it!  Expires 09/16/2012.
