Google can help you achieve and maintain a certain quality of life. Interested in a home in a certain neighborhood but there are no homeowners currently selling?

Google Alerts has you covered.
If you embrace “fugal living” then these alerts are a great tool. For example, if you happen to be looking for a new product such as a tv, Google will let you know when content is posted about it. Let Google search for TV styles, brands, sizes, and when special deals come up. Also get notified when people write reviews and see how the product you are interested in is being received by other consumers.
But even better for frugal living the alerts also find all the blogs and websites that post coupons or deals. So instead of looking for a coupon for a specific product you can setup Google Alerts to track that product and find the coupon for you! With less time spent looking for specific deals yourself your coupons will take on added value! You can spend your time doing something else productive!
