by Categorized: Uncategorized Tagged: , , Date:

kv-4-starEvery bargain hunter knows that there are deals and there are DEALS. To help you spot the very best buys, I’ve got a new Savvy Shopper rating system. Whenever I post a deal, I’ll rate it on a scale from 1 to 4.

kv-1-starAn average deal gets one Savvy Shopper star.


kv-2-starA good deal gets two.


kv-3-starA very good deal gets three.


kv-4-starA knock-it-out-of-the-park, don’t-miss-it deal gets four Savvy Shopper stars.

by Categorized: Uncategorized Tagged: Date:


If you shop wherever and whenever you roam, you won’t want to miss my new column, “Shopping Around,” appearing each Sunday in the Courant’s Travel section. I’ll be writing about travel, shopping, retail and consumer issues, and – as always – deals.

Here’s my first column, World’s Markets, Malls Make A Great Shopping Bucket List.

If you’ve had adventures shopping around, I’d love to hear them. Post your stories here or send them to me at kvann@courant.com.
