Never spend full price on anything. It's a good rule to live by. But how many of us really shop for the best deals, especially if you have kids. Maybe you just don't feel like you have time. Contact 13 looks at 4 places you can go to help you save your money.

"Life gets extremely crazy," says mother, Leslie Stewart.

She has a full schedule. When she's not at work, she's busy with her kids Ellie and Andrew.

"She is a competitive cheerleader... and then Andrew is in karate," says Leslie.

She admits she doesn't have much time for couponing or price-matching.

"That's been much more challenging. So I really rely a lot on technology as far as trying to save money these days," says Leslie.

So where do you go in order to save? For that answer, we turned to Sarah McDuffie, mother of 7 and Contributor for Vegas Family Events.

"Vegas Family has it all condensed for you," says Sarah.

This site has a calendar of affordable and also free events. Just click on any date to scroll through and to see what's going on. For example, get together with a board game group. Or get the details on a giant community garage sale.

Then if you want to grab something to eat, check out Hip 2 Save. They've got new restaurant deals everyday. But that's not all. 

"Hip 2 Save is a blogger. So she has fun videos. She does "How To" things. She makes the deals really easy for you to understand," says Sarah.

Plus she's got deals on groceries, toys and more. On the day we looked, we found Barilla Ready Pasta, regularly $1.99, for only $0.59. Or nearly $60-dollars off a North Face Women's Hoodie. Another great site is SlickDeals.

"SlickDeals has all the deals! So it has online deals, it has in-store deals," says Sarah.

We found bargains on shoes, video games, even wireless carrier deals. But if you're already at your favorite store and looking for a deal, then Sarah recommends Snip Snap. With this app, you never have to worry about forgetting your coupons at home.

"It has coupons people have loaded on, like 40% off of Michael's. Instead of having it in your purse, you have it in your phone," says Sarah.

She says whether it's an app or a website, it's important to remember there are plenty of ways to save.

"Never pay full price if you don't have to... I never do. Never do," says Sarah.
