So many coupon sites and mommieblogs are restricted to small stuff like supermarket mac ‘n cheese, diapers, and pet food.  There are more substantial savings to be found if one knows where to look.  Here are just two examples.

www.Dealcatcher.com  They point you to online coupons, products, sales, reviews, and rebates on a variety of items including electronics, home appliances, computers, clothing, housewares, and even groceries for the mac ‘n cheese crowd.  The site is updated throughout the day.

Here some samples from one day’s offerings:

A 2-2/3-cubic-foot Haier compact refrigerator/freezer combo for $93.54 at Amazon after $129 savings.  Free Shipping.
