There are several ways to save money with the use of today's technology. Using websites that offer special deals, clipping coupons and being aware of daily or weekly specials of local restaurants can help with penny pinching.
There are various websites that promote dinner and lunch deals daily. Sites like crowdsavings.com, livingsocial.com and restaurant.com offer a minimum of a 40 percent discount on meals. To stay on top of these deals it is best to sign up for the email list so that specials are sent directly to your inbox.
A local magazine entitled 435 South offers a weekly special called Tasty Tuesday's. Each week, a local restaurant South of I-435 offers a lunch special for $4.35. Not only does the weekly offer save you money, but it allows you to experience and try new restaurants around town that you might not have tried before.
Cutting coupons also offers cost-saving benefits, but you don't always have to rely on the Sunday paper. Websites like coupons.com, bettycrocker.com, pgesaver.com, thecouponclippers.com and 8coupons.com offer coupons that can be sent directly to your printer before heading to the store. Another tip is to find local grocery stores who offer double coupon days for more bang for your buck.
Following local restaurants and stores on Facebook and Twitter can also offer a cost savings. Businesses will sometimes extend specials to page subscribers and people who "like" their page. Often daily and sometimes happy hour specials are offered through these media outlets.
