Mashable has compiled a list of over 200 useful tools that are sure to come in handy during this – shall I say it? – “recession.”  The tools fall under categories such as:

  • budgeting
  • job search
  • transportation
  • travel.

They are all neatly assembled in one blog post.  Here are 10 of my favorite tools from the list:

TheCorporatePlaybook.com – A site that helps college athletes make the transition from school to the corporate world. The jobs range from everyday jobs to those in the sports field.

Mint.com – A completely free financial management tool that offers nice perks like integration with numerous banks, retrieves new transactions daily and even puts them into categories for you automatically, sets budgets that will warn you when you’re close to going over and much more.

eRideShare.com – Assists you in finding rides for daily carpooling, cross-country travel, running errands, or even to special events & club meetings.

RideAmigos.com – Use the RideAmigo’s RideMatcher system to enter your trip or commute, and find people with a matching schedule that you can share a ride with. The service also shows the environmental impact reduction of the people sharing a ride. Also offers a corporate version, which restricts results to people within your company.

RepairPal.com – RepairPal assists you with getting estimates for repairs, finding well reviewed shops and keeping track of your car’s maintenance.

FuelMeUp.com – 82,000 gas stations around the United States, and their prices are updated three times a day to reflect the latest information.

.MyCoupons.com – Has over 4,000 stores you can look up by name. Also has message boards for sharing more codes, rates how well codes have worked, and a whole lot more.

Farecast.Live.com – Microsoft powered service to search multiple sellers and predict for you if you should buy your ticket now or hold off for a possible price drop.

HotelsCombined.com – Search over 30 hotel reservation sites in 12 languages from one convenient interface.

AgentBoost.com – You post a listing for a property you plan to sell and agents have five days to bid for your listing.
