    By day, Amy Yates-Garmatz is an NBC Human Resources Manager. But when she leaves the office, she's a super saver.

    Using "Bargain Blogs" she saves hundreds of dollars a month. Amy and her friend Laura Hanlon are a dynamic dollar stretching duo.

     "We can go into a store and buy $150 worth of products and walk out for $1.38," Amy says.

    Like so many savers, Amy and Laura started by clipping coupons. But then they took it one step further. They started checking online blogs to find stores where those same items are already on sale. The blogs have names like: I Heart CVS, Surviving The Stores, Deal Seeking Mom, The "Cent"sible sawyer, and Bargain Briana.

    "We just go to the blogs and look at the sales that are going on that week and match our coupons up," Amy says. "You're crazy if you don't do it."
