#1. BASIC SEARCH ENGINES
There are a ton of frugal living services, reliable money saving information and thrifty products which can now be easily located on the Internet. The problem is how do you find what you are looking for.
First, you need to access a search engine. If you are looking primarily for quality information, you might consider an online encyclopedia or a directory. But more than just plain search engines, there are also specialized searches for travel, used products, etc.
Here are links to the main search engines:
Google is known for its fast relevant searches with a simple straight forward interface. But before you settle on this market leader, give other search engines a try as well.
Newly revamped (formerly Ask Jeeves) Ask.com is giving Google a run for its money.
A9 is a search engine owned by Amazon.com. Listings offer supplemental detailed site information such as traffic and years online.
The search by Microsoft can give a more complete listing than you may find on Google for a particular web site.

#2. MORE WAYS TO SEARCH
A very large accurate, reliable online encyclopedia with many links on relevant pages -- a good place to start.
ACCURATE PRICES ON USED AND NEW ITEMS
==== Search eBay
Check the price of almost anything used on eBay. ABC News had a report some time back about pawn shops now checking all their items on eBay before loaning money. So do what the pros do and check stuff on eBay, especially something that you might what to sell yourself. Personal note: I almost sold an old globe for about $100 but after a check on eBay, it turned out it was worth considerably more. Never assume you know what something used is worth either as a buyer or a seller.
==== Lonely Planet Travel
Search for travel information plus travel related products and books. You can also get real advice from travelers who have been there.
==== Google News
Google news seems quite up to date with the ability to look for the most recent articles or the most relevant.
Directories are maintained by humans (how old fashioned) who actually look at each web site in addition to using computer tools such as checking for broken links. Drill down through the tree-like structure until you find a category that meets your needs. If you have trouble finding a category do a search of the directory (i.e. only within the directory). This will bring up a number of web sites. Next find a description of a web site that is close to what you are looking for and then click on the link to the related category. This will take you to the full directory listing.
==== Open Directory
Open Directory is the largest of its kind on the web. It is a great place to start. Each listing has been looked at carefully by an editor. By finding the right category and clicking through the various web sites, you know will be looking at quality. BTW this directory is the one that Google uses as the Google directory.
==== Yahoo Directory
Perhaps the most famous directory on the web, Yahoo looks carefully over each site that it includes before listing.
==== Complete Blog Search
There are now millions of blogs. Find your way through this Internet world with this search engine.

#3. ADVANCED SEARCH
Get Better Results
Many of these web sites have an advanced search. Click on this link for more sophisticated listings which may include: finding specific phrases, excluding certain words and phrases, finding only listings on certain web sites or not on certain web sites, longer listings up to 100 per page and excluding or including various languages. Some search engines allow you to search within the results once you have brought up a page of listings.
TIP: When you find a good search, save the search phrases. This might simply be a note to yourself in a text or word processing document of the particular search engine and search phrase with any notes about the results OR you can actually save the search URL in many cases. Simply highlight and copy the full URL at the top of the browser after you have completed the search and then save it to a document.
