Top 5 Money Saving things I did this Week

Well, it is Friday!  TGIF!  I wanted to keep my self accountable to my money saving goals by reminding myself of my successes this week.  It was  a great week for coupon deals.  Especially at Walgreens!  My store has a military discount of 15% on Tuesdays.   I combine this with sales and rebates to layer on the savings.  Do you you try to layer your coupon strategies?  Here are some highlights from the week.


#1   Tic Tacs for $.15 each-  Walmart sells these for $1.14.  I had several insert coupons for $.50.  This brought the total down to .64.  There is a rebate on Ibotta for $.50 each on these.  This brought the total down to $.14.   I love to use Ibotta.  I roll the gift cards from one week on to more Ibotta items.  That way I don’t have to pay much out of pocket.  If you have not joined Ibotta, you can sign up at this link:  This will take you to the website that will send you to your app store to download the app.  If you put in my code:  ekebnhr when you register, we can be teammates!  When you have people on your team, you earn faster!Tic Tac

#2  We attended an orchestra concert at a local middle school to support a few friend’s kids.  This was cool for my kids to see and free!

#3  I got a free rotisserie chicken from my Safeway app.  I am stretching the chicken for three meals.  The first day was chicken and rice.  The second day was chicken and gravy over toast.  Today.. maybe chicken noodle soup?Chicken

#4  I used Walmart grocery pick up.  This is a service I love.  I don’t have to take my kids out of the car and be tempted by the million impulse buys!  You can get $10.00 off your first online grocery order by using the code WOWFRESH.  This is for an order of $50.00 or more.  This code worked when I used it.


#5 I cashed out $25.00 PayPal from the Website: Earning Station. I signed up with this website about a month ago.  So far, I am really liking it.  I have mostly used the Smore’s TV video section, which can run for quite awhile on it’s own.  It is one point for every 3 videos.  1 point is one cent.  You can also get points for many other activities such as polls, clicking on offers,  daily video, etc… It is very similar to Swagbucks, which I like.  But, it seems more reliable with the offers.  If you do the daily checklist, you could get $.09 per day just from that.  Then, with videos you could easily make about $.50 a day.  No, this will not make you rich… But, if done for 30 days, you will have $15.00 that you didn’t have today.  This is a very passive way to do it.  You could also do coupon printing, and surveys.  I have not gotten into the surveys much as they take more time.  If you want to try it, consider using my referral code:  1604393.  It is worth a try!! The PayPal payment also came in one day for me, which was nice.

Have a great Friday!
