Here's how to pinch pennies on clothes and home improvement items.

The Gap has started a really interesting program. It's called GapMyPrice. It lets customers name their own price for clothes.

Its first promotion was for a pair of men's khakis.

One tester said after haggling with Gap on the website, he got 30-percent off.

Now this promotion has ended, but Gap is planning another one soon and says to check back to for details.

Here's something for DIYers. Home Depot is celebrating every Friday this spring with Black Friday-type offers on Facebook.

The deals will take place through the end of May and here's how they work: Customers who "like" the Home Depot on Facebook will get information about exclusive deals available on Facebook only. They won't be available in stores or on Various grills, lawn and garden and patio supplies will be 50 to 75-percent off.

This year's promotion will be so big, Home Depot is hiring 60,000 seasonal associates for four different weekend events.
