Here you'll find thousands of coupons, coupon codes and deals to use when shopping online. Unlike most coupon sites, we're a one-person "boutique" operation (and have been since 1999), so must be selective both about the merchants we feature and the sales, discounts, clearances and coupon codes we post each day. We don't want to make saving money difficult, so unlike other coupon sites, we don't hide the coupon codes behind links, seed our site with annoying pop-ups or partner with fly-by-night merchants. If you'd like to be notified by email when we add new coupons and discounts, create a free account by clicking the "Deal Alerts" link above. We don't rent or sell our list to anyone; it's used only to send you updates. New coupons also are posted daily to our Twitter feed. Finally, we have a popular ebook that details the 101 best deals online, available for 99 cents for the Amazon Kindle, iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, Barnes and Noble nook, Kobo Reader or any other eReader or eReader software. Or receive a free PDF version with any order at Best Deal Magazines.
In her book, Garbage Land: On the Secret Trail of Trash, Elizabeth Royte attempts to track all of the waste she and her family produces to its ultimate destination, including recycling, computers, mounds of excess plastic and paper packaging, food scraps and even sewage. It's a fascinating read that compels you to more carefully consider everything you dispose of, especially since the average American throws away an estimated 4.3 pounds of trash each day. The goal, although unachievable for most people, is zero waste -- everything gets reused somehow.
