The leak: Up to 50% of the price, compared with buying online
The plug: In the heady moments after you first hold your beautiful new phone or tablet or computer, it's easy to get swept up by similarly cool accessories.
Go home and go online, and you won't overpay for peripherals, says Rick Broida of CNET's The Cheapskate blog. The least expensive iPhone case, screen protector, and headset available at the Apple Store will run you $84, while using Amazon.com drops the price to $37.
Plug those small expenses that add up over time. See which of these money leaks apply to you and start saving hundreds - or even thousands -- a year.
