    Shopping Lists

    Another feature of MySpendingPlan.com is the ability to create shopping lists. However, since writing or typing a shopping list is usually an easy task to complete anyway, this feature really does not add a whole lot to the experience of the website itself. It may be useful for some people who would rather take care of all their financial and shopping needs and wants at one time.

MySpendingPlan.com takes the time-wasting aspects of searching for such deals out of the consumer's life by offering a number of free coupons, special discounts for online shopping, and the ability for users to request free samples of household and personal products.
