Whether a person is a billionaire or barely scraping by, everyone loves saving money. Many sites help manage finances and will encourage staying on track with financial goals. Some favorites include gas comparing websites, but others may be less well known, like these!

Using Coupons.com the FAB way!

Free Online Grocery Coupons

Coupon clipping will save you money, especially if there are products that you have to have in the name brand. Here are some of the best sites for great coupons for some of your favorite products.

Mypoints.com - This is my all-time favorite. Not only do they give you awesome coupons, but you also get points just for using them. Those points also transfer into gift cards eventually. In addition to the coupons, they also pay you per ad you look at within your e-mail inbox. How it works is that mypoints will send you a few ads a week, then, you earn five points for viewing and additional points if you order anything on their affiliate sites. Once you get a certain level of points, you can trade your points in for gift certificates to many different places. I always get a Barnes and Noble, Applebees, or Olive Garden gift card. I've been doing it for over ten years and have received many of these.

hip2save.com - This site not only has coupons but also gives free samples. They provide shopping strategies that show you how to do nearly free shopping! She is quoted saying, "I have only been going to it for about a month, and I've already got all kinds of free stuff mailed to me, probably saved $500 on groceries and other items, etc." It sounds like a great place to me!!!

Smartsource.com - This one is straightforward to use, and before you view the coupons, it asks for your zip code so that way they can provide local coupons as well!

coupons.com - This site you can print both national and local coupons. All you have to do is input your zip code, and then they will show you coupons that you can print for your local area. You can also connect with them through Twitter and Facebook.

918couponqueen.com - This is another excellent place for free online coupons for groceries and other things. Once you get to the site, you will want to click on 'frugal living.' It will bring you to a blog that gives coupons. Below the 'frugal living,' you will see "printable coupons" written in white. If you click on that, you can view "printable coupons!"

redplum.com - This is another excellent site for more free online coupons for groceries!

Used Books

These sites will help you not only recycle your books, but also help you spend less on your books, movies, and music!

Buy Books Cheap Online

Do you have piles and piles of books, CDs, movies that you don't read, listen to, or watch? Well, then these sites are perfect for you. They all work much the same way. First, you post items that you no longer want, people order yours, you pay for shipping, then pick what you want, and it will arrive for free in a few days! Often I have gotten a brand new item, while others are in good used condition.

paperbackswap.com - This one is not just for paperbacks; you can also trade hardcover books. I have found that the quality of the books you get through this is usually outstanding. The people are pretty honest, and I have had no problems whatsoever!!!

swapadvd.com - You can only trade DVDs no VCR tapes here. The availability is not as good as their paperbackswap counterpart, but if something becomes available that has been your waiting list, they will notify you. You also can trade your credits between its two affiliates paperbackswap.com and swapacd.com.

swapacd.com - Here, you can swap CDs. The availability is not so good, but if you are patient, you will eventually get the CDs that you are looking for, and you can also exchange credits between its affiliates.

swaptree.com- This one is, by far, my favorite. You can trade books for CDs, or DVDs for books, or CDs for DVDs or, well, I think you get the point. People get rated on how reliable they are, so you know that you are going to get good quality! Plus, they rate the product; therefore, you know ahead of time what condition the item is going to be.

bookmooch.com - This one is my least favorite, but I post it because it's such a good deal. It is my least favorite because the quality of the books isn't that great, the selection is not always stellar, but you earn lots of credits! In other words, it's more than one book for one book ratio. For instance, I have given twenty-five books through this one and received thirty-two. I like it, but I never trust this site to provide books in like-new condition. Often they are very used but readable!

There are many great sites, but often it is hard to tell which ones are reliable and which ones are going to scam you. These sites are all highly reliable sites that I have personal experience in and can guarantee they are not a scam.
