7 websites that will save you a ton of money

Who doesn't like saving money these days? With living expenses seemingly always on the rise, it's a good idea to find ways to save a little here and there.

You're in luck. There are seven websites that you need to know about that will help keep some of your hard-earned cash in your pocket.



Trying to figure out which mobile service provider will give you the best bang for your buck is tricky. WhistleOut is a free comparison site that does the work for you.

Not only does it compare phone prices, wireless plans, and the cost of additional lines, but it also factors in special offers and fees. The site compares data from 32 suppliers and nearly 390,000 cellphone plan combinations.

You can filter your results by selecting the number of phone lines you'll need, whether or not you want a new phone, the usage plan (data, minutes, messages), and networks. Click "Search 32 Carriers" and the site will pull up a chart with all the plans you can select from. The search results will include the monthly cost of the plan, how much is due upfront, the data plan and the carrier offering that option.

Ecofont Vera Sans


Do you know that certain fonts can save you ink which in turn can save you money? Ecofont Vera Sans is a typeface that puts a bunch of tiny holes in each letter so it saves ink - up to 28 percent to be exact.

You wouldn't want to use it for a formal paper or wedding invitation, of course, but for everyday printing, it works great. And the best part is that Ecofont Vera Sans is free to download and use. Note: Make sure you get Vera Sans regular because other types of fonts from Ecofont cost money.

You must enter your name and email address in the provided fields to download the Ecofont. Click the green "Download" button and you will arrive at the fonts page. Click on a font link to download that font to your computer. I recommend downloading the .zip file.

When fonts have finished downloading, you will need to extract the font from the .zip folder and then install the font files into your local font folder. Once the font is installed on your computer, you can select it in any of your document programs to save money whenever you print.
