A few more money-saving skills.
The following pertains to buying online. First, when I know that I am going to buy something from a widely known website, I go to google and type in the name of the online store and "coupon code". There are websites out there that just keep track of coupon codes that are released by online stores. The other day, I was going to make a purchase from Yankee Candle. My total was just over $25. I found a coupon code for $10 off and ended up paying $15 including shipping. Second, when I am looking for a particular item online, I go to google's froogle website (http://froogle.google.com/frghp?hl=en&tab=wf&q=). Then, I type in the name of the book or item and search. I then sort the listings from low to high so I can find the cheapest price. It really works wonders.
