You might be doing online shopping for essentials or other items. So, how do you know you're getting the best deal? Well, research! That's typically where I come in, but you can basically have your own assistant saving your hard-earned cash!

I've told you about a few of these over the years, but look into web browser extensions, sites or apps that can offer additional help! I also found a list from Mental Floss. I'll highlight a few that we've also covered before.

Check out this free browser app called Honey. It scans the internet for working coupon codes, and then applies the best deal to your cart, wherever you're shopping! What if it doesn't find any sales? The site offers cash back at several stores, and it can alert you about price drops!

If you're an Amazon shopper, there's an add-on called Amazon Assistant that compares prices on the site and alerts you of new deals and discounts. Click here to learn how to install it.

Camel Camel Camel also has a free price tracker called The Camelizer, monitoring millions of products and alerts you when prices drop.

Goodshop is a coupon search engine. On the website, I saw that you can also check for toilet paper availability at Walmart and ways to save on essentials.

InvisibleHand helps you find the lowest prices on flights, hotels, rental cars and retail!

Price Blink's website says it "Finds lower prices and coupons when you're shopping!"

If you want to earn rewards or cash back, you'll want to look into options like Ebates, which is now called Rakuten, or Swagbucks. There are a ton more out there. Click here to see the full article from Mental Floss for even more resources.

Happy shopping, and happy saving!
