A Word to the Wise T.I. - The Frugal T.I.

The holidays can be tough for T.I.s, particularly so in the present economic recession. Here are money saving links from Consumer Reports and Smart Shopping magazines. (Update at end of article.)

Deal News - "Every day, dealnews brings you the best deals available on the hottest items on the Internet. We scour over 2,000 online retailers and tens of thousands of deals to deliver the best 100+ deals each and every day — the kinds of deals you'd normally only see on Black Friday. We verify that each deal is valid, the lowest total price we could find, and from a reputable retailer. Then and only then do we post it for you. We take getting a bargain seriously, and then share what we find with you."

Free Shipping "is the premiere free shipping resource on the internet. It is a site with one simple goal, to save online shoppers money by providing them with a list of trusted online retailers who are offering free shipping coupons. Smart online shoppers have always known the cost of shipping can make the difference between a good deal and a great deal. But finding out which online retailers are offering free shipping deals has not always been easy, and it can be very time consuming."

My Grocery Deals "Like many great ideas, this website started on a napkin with a belief that there has to be a better way to save money using retail flyers or circulars. As deal shoppers ourselves, we began our research by asking our friends, families and colleagues if they felt the same way. As our suspicions were confirmed, we personally commissioned extensive research that further validated our thoughts. It started to look more and more like our little idea was a great one. So, we put together a determined, entrepreneurial team that worked long and hard for close to a year to deliver this service to you. We want all grocery shoppers to save time and money!"
