Frugality and Me – Perfect Together

Lately, I have found myself browsing these internet ‘deal’ sites. I got my first taste from Anandtech’s Hot Deals web site. I was intrigued by the creativity these people had in order to squeeze as much merchandise from a retailer for the least amount of money, all legal and playing by the rules. Sometimes, the retailer would cancel the order because it was a mistake, but most times things went right through. Many of the Hot Dealers spoke of another site called FatWallet. I ventured over to it one day and found a much more robust community that found deals on everything from DVDs to Computers. They really knew how to get the most bang for your buck. I would buy things that I needed or wanted, but mostly I bought things because it was too good of a deal to pass up. A $25 Targus Laptop Bag? That’s a no brainer. Could I pass up a 18″ Dell LCD Screen with DVI? For $400? Not on your life.

I then found out about Spoofee. This site is very similar, but they post the top 3 or 4 deals of the day. I was able to purchase a Lexmark E210 for about $50; a deal I got from Spoofee.

Lastly, I wanted to mention the Outlet / Friday Sale. Every Friday, Amazon puts some pretty good deals up at this location. It’s worth a look see.
