MySimon.com: This impressive site has a wide-reaching selection of women's and men's clothing, with comparison prices of the same items at other websites. A real time saver for you if you're browsing for the best online deal. We really liked the range and diversity of the sneakers section. The price comparison shopping is excellent. Knowledge is power!

Become.com: The clothing selection on this site includes fashions for women, men, teens, and children. Attire items include shoes, dresses, sleepwear, handbags, luggage, and accessories. While we didn't see any bona fide bargains, it's a contemporary selection (running the gamut of J.C. Penney's and Lisa Perry) and could be helpful if you're going to try to "reverse engineer" a more expensive ensemble. There are a lot of cute possibilities on this site.

NetworkShopper.com: This site not only offers price comparison while shopping for clothing and accessories, but for electronics, home and garden, books, jewelry, and more.

SortPrice.com: This site offers price comparison for online shopping outlets. There is a good selection of apparel items (although many are expensive), and other categories include electronics, computers, toys, video games, jewelry, music and more.

StreetPrices.com: You just gotta love a price comparison site that has a cartoon dog sketch in its logo and sports the tagline, "Sniffing out the best prices on the web." Not only is it an easy-to-navigate site, but the price comparisons are easy to locate. Name brands and designer labels are included for clothing and accessories, like Calvin Klein, DKNY, Baby Fanatic, Bolle, and Rubies Costume Company, which will be helpful as Halloween draws nearer.

Here's a link to a Buzzle.com article about the "latest trend" of price comparison shopping websites. The trend for frugal folks like us to price-comparison shop is not new, but it's pleasant to know we're thought of as trendy.
