Hi, it is a really useful post, I like the tip "Use the Web to save $8,000 a year ". Some tips I already knew while others are not. I use Google product search and live cash back to save my money, and sometimes I also use Amazon promotional codes to cut my budget.

I didn't calculate how many money I already save through my money saving skills, but it should be a large amount of money.

Great post and thanks!
