Favorite Bargain Shopping Sites
I'm well known among my friends as a great bargain hunter, here's some of the ways I do that online.
Percent Back on Purchases Sites
Use http://evreward.com/ to find out which program offers the most back on where you're shopping, then join from the links below.
There are others but ebates and bigcrumbs, and Bing cashback are my favorites, plus they tend to be the largest percentage.
A daily discounted gift certificate or service from a local business in your area. I've gotten lots a great stuff from cake decorating classes to discounted museum tickets from Groupon.
Half off at least gift certificates for your Metro area.
Extremely Discounted Restaurant.com gift certificates (Minimum Purchase required)

Google for coupon codes, they always have something going on.
Fashion & Home
One of the original "invite" shopping sites.
Lots of stuff, one of my favorites.
Home decor stuff, pretty pricey still, but very cool stuff.
Tons of stuff, lots of different price levels
Others I'm not as crazy about but you might like:
This one is very trendy and lesser known designers it seems.
What I like about Beyond the Rack is they ave a good mix of high end but also some more "normal" brands at great prices, the best of both worlds.
Ideeli has gotten a lot of press, I don't really like how they have a pay for early access program, but I guess it's a smart business move. They do get good stuff, and have a lot of sales going on.
Lots of stuff, sadly can't sort items within a boutique, like that they have a "last call area" Good brands available.
This site is cool because they have a wide variety of stuff, it's a nice design as well, plus they have various email options so you know about the sales but aren't bombarded
Sample Sales right from the "sets" might be cool might be lame
Less sales going on, but that makes it easier, plus they go as high as 85% off which more than most.
They go up to 90% off and have last call reductions
Mom & Baby Private Shopping Sites
When I looked they even had nice looking strollers for half off which I would assume is very good amount off for baby stuff, and the extra stroller shipping was just $5. They seem to be one of the biggest sites.
A mix of kid and mom stuff. At the time of this post they had sunglasses for mom, some kids clothes and bikes. I like that on the main page they tell you the max percentage off, so you can decide if it's worth the click. They plant a tree for each purchase if that's your sorta thing.
They have a lot of sales going on at the time, primarily clothes and green toys, some decor stuff. Decent but no extreme percentages off it seems to me, they don't post the percentage off which is annoying for a "bargain site". They mark some stuff as final price which is helpful. Their logo is just darling though.
I think this one might be my favorite, they seem to have more of the 'normal' grade stuff, as opposed to many of the other sites taking the very high end stuff and discounting it.
Other recommended sites I found, no sign up required:
Kind of similar to Woot.com one item on sale a day, heavily discounted.
Same concepts as mamabargains.com and woot.com
Mainly cheap toys from the most sucessful one day sale company Woot.
