It's a new year, though some deals have carried over from 2010. Find out where and check out deals for tax software, golf gear, and free food.

Happy New Year! If your resolution was to spend money more carefully, we’re here to help. Start 2011 off right with some free breakfast, then save on your kids’ school supplies or restock your office. We’ve also spotted savings on grocery items and computer hardware.

Freebies first: At Waffle House you can get free hash browns with a coupon that expires Jan. 15. You can also get free bagel poppers and coffee at Einstein Bros. Bagels when you purchase a breakfast sandwich through Friday.

Staples has a lot of items on sale this week for just a buck: dry-erase markers, glue, mechanical pencils, photo paper, and just about everything else you need for school or the office. Reams of paper are $2 after rebates, and there are more Staples coupons here.

If you want to start the new year by updating your small business’s books, Amazon.com has deals on various versions of QuickBooks for sale through Jan. 9. You can save 20 to 63 percent depending on what you buy, and they’ll teach you to use it with a free copy of Learning QuickBooks 2011 when you order.

Amazon.com is also clearing out its larders with up to 60 percent off grocery items through January.  You can click “subscribe and save” to get another 15 percent off and free shipping, but make sure to unsubscribe after the first order ships, or they’ll ship more and bill you. There’s plenty of deals here, but to pick an example at random, they have 20 bags of Pop Secret Popcorn for less than $8.

One more deal from Amazon.com: up to 50 percent off golf gear. If nothing else, you can stock up on balls for about 30 percent off. The site will also throw in a subscription to Golf Digest or Golf World with any $20 golf purchase.

JCPenney is stuck in 2010 with coupon code 2ENDYEAR, which will save $10 off a $25 purchase. We’re sure they will catch up, but save while you can. Shipping starts at $5.95 or you can ship to your local store for free.

Newegg is likewise extending last year through Wednesday with their “End of Year Ultimate Clearance” sale. A lot of stuff is up to 50 percent off, but you’ll have to subscribe to their newsletter to use the promo codes. Some examples: half-price GPS devices, a 16GB SD card for $21, or a 55” Toshiba 1080p LCD HDTV for $1270.

Newegg also has a good deal, unrelated to the sale, on a 640 GB Western Digital internal hard drive for laptops. The price is only $50: regular price at NewEgg is $80, but they can go up to $100 elsewhere.

If you need a new internal hard drive for your desktop, though, Dell might have your deal.  You can get a 2 TB Western Digital internal hard drive for $90, and save another $20 via rebate. Fill out this form after you order and send it off within a month. $90 isn’t bad given that these can go for $140, but half-off is even better.

That’s all for this week – until next time, share how you’re saving in the new year by commenting below.
