Deal sharks: the Web's best shoppers by Melinda Fulmer

...The best deals can often be had by frequenting discount sites..Sites like My Bargain Buddy do some of the research for you..

Karen Hoxmeier, the stay-at-home mother who created My Bargain Buddy, looks for gifts year-round, like the $3.59 margarita blender with chopper attachment that she scored in the clearance section of a home décor Web site, or the suede jacket she picked up at the end of a season for $12, rather than its original $120 price. Hoxmeier keeps many of these purchases in a box in her garage. When one of her kids has a birthday party to go to, or she needs another Christmas present, out comes one of these under-$10 gems.
