We've rounded up the most efficient paths to search for Web savings. But before looking for savings online, make sure you've looked under your own roof first. Cutting your cost of living is the fastest way to keep cash in your bank account.

The search for bargains begins with Daily Deals from Wise Bread, which aggregates the top freebies, coupons and specials from 40 Web sites daily. 

Wallet Pop highlights its own Freebies (currently a free weekend-day Hertz car rental) and pulls together a list of Deals pulled from across the Web.

Dodtracker.com was named to Kiplinger's 2008 Best List for finding deals. It aggregates one-day, Internet-only sales. The pickings run the gamut, but you can search by category.

For sales at mainstream retailers there's DealNews.com, which grew out of tracking Black Friday Sales.

To save money on the item of your choice, you can search for Web coupon codes at sites such as  Dealio.com and Keycode.com. You'll also find printable coupons for brick-and-mortar stores.

For price searches on specific items, there are such mainstays such as PriceGrabber.com and CNETShopper.com. Also worth a look are Pricescan.com, which is advertised as vendor-neutral, and Streetprices.com, which has an inviting homepage.

Share your favorite sites for finding extra savings.
