Save money with bargain blogs

Everyone knows that clipping coupons can help save money on items we use everyday, but what many people don't know is that a little time in front of the computer can save them even more.

By day, Amy Yates-Garmatz is an NBC Human Resources Manager, but when she leaves the office she's a super saver. "Hundreds of dollars a month," reports Yates-Garmatz. 

Amy and her friend Laura Hanlon are a dynamic dollar-stretching duo. "We can go in and have $150 worth of products and walk out for $1.38," said Hanlon. 

Like so many savers, Amy and Laura start by clipping coupons. But then they go one step further, checking online blogs to find stores where those same items are already on sale.

The blogs have names like "I heart CVS," "surviving the stores," "deal seeking mom," "The centsible saver," and "bargain briana." "We just go to the blogs and look at the sales that are going on that week and match our coupons up," said Hanlon. 

Amy and Laura found toilet paper for 19 cents, paper towels for 3 cents, shampoo at no cost. 

"You're crazy if you don't do it. It's easy. Anyone can do it," said Yates-Garmatz.

If you'd like to try and track down some of these same bargains, here are a few links to those bargain blogs:
