Does being online save you money

Have you ever thought that having internet might actually be saving you money? You might feel a squeeze when you pay the hefty bill to the broadband company every month, but can you really afford to live without it?!

We don’t have cable service, but I can’t imagine how much life would cost if we didn’t have the internet to inform us about all the deals out there.

There is a new study by the Internet Innovation Alliance that shows that the average household saves more than $7,200 per year over 10 main categories (see below).  They estimate an annual household food budget of $3,624 with a savings of $942 just from having internet access!!


Looking at my Friday Finals for 2010, we spent $2,272.47 and saved a whopping $5,621.31 (71%) last year. This was for a family of 5 and the best part is, it’s not just food, but also includes household & personal care items too!

I’d say for the average coupon-minded family, we all save a lot more than this study shows.  

Have you ever tallied your yearly savings from online sales, coupons and deals? What would these numbers look like for your family?
