Keep playing with the long list of options that Save for Web have. For example, i usually use a JPEG High preset and/or a GIF preset of Adaptive /128 colors, No Dither and No transparency. There are (if you want to spend more time on a single image optimization) more ways to lower the size of the files, but in these days of broadband connections you may want to focus on your target audience, so that will lead you to your optimization method.
But again, dont take my word. Pick 2 or 3 different images and apply different settings to each one. Considering that, you may end with like 30 different settings per each so you may conclude by your own view which optimization method is better for your needs.

On JPG, you can choose the amount of quality you want the image to have (85%, etc). But Ruben is right, the best way is to export the same image in different formats and compression and then compare the quality and the size.
I use for text , or images with text ---> GIF
And for images---> JPG.
