Local website great resource for deals

(Published on 1/4/13)

Is your New Year’s Res­o­lu­tion to save money? Who doesn’t love to save time and money when shop­ping? That’s exactly what a new local web­site I dis­cov­ered promises. Founded in Octo­ber by a Delaware mother of three, Short Cut Saver is a fan­tas­tic resource and truly is a one-stop shop to find out what’s on sale at local stores as well as find­ing coupons and much more.

Ali­son McFad­den has learned how to save at least 60 to 70 per­cent at the gro­cery store and, in response to many of her friends and fam­ily ask­ing her how she does it, Short Cut Saver was born.

“I do it to help teach oth­ers how to save,” McFad­den said. “It kills me to see peo­ple pay full price when they could save at least half. They may not know how to do it and I would love to show them how. It does take time and patience.”

Her motto is “Because I Like My Money,” and she has saved thou­sands of dol­lars which helps her take her fam­ily on amaz­ing vaca­tions and pay for extra expenses. On her site, McFad­den posts daily out­lin­ing area deals and sales. She also gives you links to coupons. One sec­tion even high­lights where you can find deals for free or at least one dol­lar or under. McFad­den is inter­ested in expand­ing the site to include infor­ma­tion about local sales at independently-owned stores around Delaware County.

“I can add a link to click on my side­bar or make a post (about local sales). I would love to get the whole Delaware com­mu­nity involved on my site to help every­one save locally,” she said.

You can fol­low Short Cut Saver on Face­book, Twit­ter and Pin­ter­est. She has an Android app as well. To con­tact her directly, email her at or visit

I plan to visit the site as often as I can to check in on the deals to be found. Thanks, Ali­son, for all the hard work and research and help­ing us save!
