5 little cuts for big savings

Monitor online deal sites
3 of 7

You can save money by shopping online. But you have to approach it with the right mindset.

Casserly advises subscribing to a few popular deal websites such as Groupon or LivingSocial. The sites offer deep discounts on local services and products, essentially allowing customers to buy store credits at up to half off that are redeemed later. But don't be lured to buy something you don't need.

"Buy only what you would have bought anyway," Casserly says.

For example, if you see your favorite local restaurant offering a deal, it pays to grab it because you'll be able to discount the bill on your next visit.
