The ShopKick app is one of my favorite money saving phone apps because it is extremely easy to use and fun!  If you like being rewarded for shopping, then you need to learn how to use ShopKick! We currently live very close to a large Outlet Mall and other retail stores. Sometimes my husband and I like to head out with the kids to get some fresh air, exercise, and window shop over at the outlets. We chat, look around, let the kids play with some toys (that we don't buy), look at a few things, play at the playgrounds, and eventually head home. But, would you believe that during our fun little shopping excursion, I earn money? And ...

How to Save Money on Groceries Without Ever Leaving Home

This post likely contains affiliate links.

If you want to try out online grocery shopping, here's how to make it much more affordable! Save money on groceries without coupons or leaving home!

I hate grocery shopping. And it's not even because I have four kids that join me when I go. The main reason for my disdain is the high grocery bill at the end and still feeling like we don't have any food a few days later. My frugal nature encourages me to find ways to save money on groceries. I clip coupons. I shop sales. I stockpile when the price is right. I use money saving couponing apps on my phone. I buy generic. I avoid eating out too! Nonetheless, I always spend more than I want to, because I want to spend $0 on food. I know. It's unrealistic, cause, well, I need to eat and so does my family, and it isn't going to ...

6 Legit Ways to Score Free Samples in the Mail (Some Monthly!)

This post likely contains affiliate links.

PINCHme - Sample Tuesday - July2016 - 2.jpg

Free Samples. They are part of the reason you love having a membership to places like Sam's Club. You can sample some free food while shopping and score another free sample from their in-store Sample Kiosk called a Freeosk. Free samples are why you love attending events that will be giving away SWAG.  At home parties, you like having little samples, little taste, little trials, of a product before you commit to the real deal. Free samples are awesome mainly because, well, they are free. Plus, if you like them, they often come with a high value coupon so you can pick up more. And I love having travel sized toothpastes and lotions ...

Online Grocery Shopping Made Easy: Walmart Grocery Pickup Review

This post likely contains affiliate links.

walmart grocery pickup review.

On Facebook the other day one of my local friends, Crystal, tagged me in a post with her personal Walmart Grocery Pickup review. Our local Walmart has recently become a participating Walmart Grocery that offers free curbside pick-up service. My friend was a fan. She said: I just tried this and it was amazing! I took my time shopping, double checked my list against my week's meal plan, price compared to other stores to make sure I was getting the best deal. And I did it all without my kids whining through the store or running down the aisles. So amazing!  I will also say that they pick you the best produce. Better than I pick on ...

23 Places to Stockpile in an Apartment

This post likely contains affiliate links.

Great storage ideas for creating a stockpile in a small apartment home without a lot of storage space. Plus some good tips on saving money in the process!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kleenex® & Cottonelle®. All opinions are 100% mine. When you live with a husband and four small children in an apartment, the last thing you think you can do is stockpile in an apartment.  When closet space is limited, and garages, basements, pantries, and storage sheds are nonexistent, you look around your small home and think there is no way you could store months' worth of food or toiletries here. But, if there's a will there is a way. If you are like us, apartment living still, the budget is tight, and you and your family would benefit from stockpiling, allowing you ...

How to Save Money on Food When Dining at a Restaurant

This post likely contains affiliate links.

13 great money saving tips for how to save money on food when dining out at restaurants.

If I could eat out every day, for every meal, without going completely broke, or gaining 100lbs, I probably would. I do not like to cook and greatly enjoy eating out at a sit down restaurant with my family where they bring me delicious food, clean it up, keep my glass full, and allow me to enjoy talking with my husband and children without worrying about one darn thing in regards to the meal.Sometimes I think my husband and I are odd in that we enjoy bringing our kids with us to restaurants (and I mean the sit-down variety).  Yes, even with infant and toddler twins we enjoyed taking our entire family out to eat, and continue to do ...

Where and How to Get Free Diapers

This post likely contains affiliate links.

What a great list and resource on knowing where and how to get free diapers! Every little bit helps save money on baby!

Oh, crap. Literally. Your child has done his business but you are out of clean disposable diapers. And you also are unfortunately tight on cash and know you will end up coughing up a few dollars for a small pack of diapers instead of the nice big box, even though you know they are much more expensive per diaper than what the larger box offers. Sometimes you just wish you could get a little handout, a little help, now and then and get some of these never-ending diapers for free. But, how to get free diapers? Can you really get diapers free?

12 Reasons to Love H-E-B

This post likely contains affiliate links.

Love these yellow HEB coupons hanging around the store!

Moving to Texas was great except it meant shopping at a new (to us) grocery store chain: H-E-B. Grocery stores are an integral part of your life, no matter if you shop a few times a week or just once a month. To start a new "relationship" with a grocery store was not my favorite. I didn't know the ins and outs of it, how their coupon policy worked, what their best products and deals are, or how their sale cycle went, like I did with my previous grocery store chain in Indianapolis. After a year of being here in Texas, I am finally getting more familiar with HEB and all it has to offer. Despite my initial hold-ups at the beginning ...

5 Ways to Save Money on Moving Costs

This post likely contains affiliate links.

Moving is expensive! The costs are still high even if you DIY, often because of all the unforeseen things you need once you get to your new place. I love that this post has some great suggestions on how to save every step of the way.

Moving is expensive. Often you think it will just be the cost of the rental truck and some packing tape and boxes, but every apartment is different, and you suddenly need things you may not have needed before, like floor lamps, or extension cords, or curtains, and you have to pay for setting up new services. It all adds up. We recently moved from Indiana to Texas and knew it would be expensive so we prepped and saved, but we still spent quite a bit. However, there are some simple, easy ways you can save money on moving costs. *This post contains my affiliate links. 1. Get Free Moving Boxes I wrote an entire post on where to ...
