Online shopping is a lot easier and more affordable because of the growing popularity of coupon sharing sites offering coupons and discount codes. In fact, using online discounts and coupon codes can save an average family up to $7,707 annually, according to Internet Innovation Alliance.

The study, Real Cost of the Digital Divide by Nicholas J. Delgado, found that families can save up to 20 percent annually on travel, 25.7 percent on food, 37.1 percent on clothing and 4.7 percent on gasoline - all items that are used frequently and therefore quickly add up to a lot of savings.

Why do people shop online? Because it's easy to find everything from personal care and clothing to home and garden needs, office supplies, equipment and furnishing to large restaurant equipment and machinery, eye wear to flowers and gifts and more. And it's not just about easily finding the items on those everyday shopping lists. Online shoppers are also saving money, including spending less on gas and managing their time more efficiently by having everything delivered right to their front door or office.

Online shopping sites like MeFindCoupon provide users with coupons and discount codes for more than 5,000 favorite online stores and brands, like Sears, 1800Florals.com, Walmart, Adidas, Motorcycle Superstore and Glasses.com. It can be a shopper's paradise to bargain shop online for designer brand clothing, accessories, watches, fragrances and more at stores like Moda Queen and Jomashop.com to name a few.
