Money Saving Tips of the Week for Thrifty Mom’s

Hey ladies!

Firstly, I am so sorry that I haven’t posted in a while. Between potty training, working and my new statistics class, I’m being stretched really thin. I will try to get caught up on my posts within the next few days! 🙂

Also, thank you for all that follow me! I recently got 60 likes and I am pretty excited about that!

So, without further adieu…here are this weeks money savings tips

♥ 1. Download the Cartwheel App immediately

If you are a Target shopper but don’t have time for the whole coupon clipping stuff or the hassle of a rebate program, this will become your new best friend! It is a Target app that will allow you to bundle their digital coupons right from your cell. You just hand your phone to the cashier with the bar-code up and poof; all savings are deducted.

♥ 2. Save your samples

When you leave the dentist’s office with your grown woman “goodie bag” of toothpaste and such, what do you do with it? I hope you keep it! Designate a drawer in your house for all things sample and trust me, you will use these babies if you’re organized with them.

♥ 3. Cut the cable in rooms that aren’t often occupied

Do you have a den in your house with a TV in it that has been used a whopping 3 times? Cut that TV, get yourself a Chromecast, AppleTV or a Roku and use that Netflix you pay for every month!

You can even take this a step further and cut Cable out of your house all together! I have been living without Cable or Satellite for the last year and a half. I have a variety of devices throughout my house; Chromecast, digital TV antenna, a couple Roku’s and also an amazing App that you can download called Sling TV. It’s the first Live, legal television that streams online. For $20 a month, you get stations like ESPN, ESPN2, Food Network, Disney Channel, the History Channel and more!

Right now, they are offering promotions for a Free Roku Streaming Stick, 1/2 off Roku3 and Free Fire TV Stick! The quality is awesome if you have fast internet.

♥ 4. Subscribe to promotional emails for your favorite places and companies

So maybe this one isn’t everyone’s favorite because those emails can end up taking over your Inbox but if you make yourself another email account strictly for promotional emails, you won’t be sorry. Let me just show you some of the email’s I got this week…

♥ 5. Got gift cards?

If you have old gift card’s that are still valid and you’re not really looking to use them any time soon…sell them! I have done this numerous times and my favorite site is Cardpool. You just go into their site, enter your card’s information along with the balance and mail it off. They send you the money really quickly as well.

♥ 6. Buy gift cards

So this might seem redundant but buying previously owned gift cards from a reputable company is pretty awesome. Purchase where you frequently shop and you can get instant savings. Currently on GiftCardRescue.com, you can get a Vons gift card for 10% off.
