Did you know it's incredibly easy to make money with your fitness tracker? These 3 programs will have you earning extra cash in no time!

 

I recently started wearing my Fitbit after a looooong hiatus, and it’s so much fun to watch my steps accumulate throughout the day.  I don’t have the free time that I wish I had to go for a good walk, but I try to make the most of morning and afternoon breaks during my day job and to squeeze a quick walk.  

After I started wearing my Fitbit again, I got to thinking…  Are there any programs out there where I could earn money for walking?  As a matter of fact, there are!  I’ve only uncovered three worthwhile ones as of writing this post, but as I find more, I’ll certainly pass them along.

***

Walgreens Balance Rewards

I love Walgreens in general.  I cannot tell you how many times I’ve found something unique there.  Or an incredible bargain.  Or some type of makeup that I have trouble finding elsewhere.  It’s just a great store.  

However, I had gotten out of the habit of shopping there.  Once I started back and started using my Balance Rewards card again, they resumed their emails to me with all sorts of offers.  I truly don’t remember what made me check to see if they offered a program for people that utilized my fitness tracker, but I somehow stumbled upon it.  If you want to sync up your fitness tracker to earn rewards, keep reading to see what’s involved with the set up.

First, you’ll need to create an account online at Walgreens.com and sync up your Balance Rewards card.  There are multiple fitness tracker options to choose from.  You’ll earn 20 points per mile walked per day.  With the rewards program, once you’ve reached 5000 points (from all kinds of activities), you automatically earn $5 back from Walgreens.  

You can earn points from multiple healthy activities.  I encourage you to check it out if you a) already wear a fitness tracker or b) already maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Achievemint

This is another new program for me, and it’s just as easy to set up.  Simply visit Achievemint.com and set up an account.  Upon joining, you will automatically get 250 points.  Complete your health questionnaire (super easy!) and earn an additional 750 points!

Once you’ve completed those two steps, simply connect your fitness tracker to your account.  I noticed that when I connected mine, it actually went BACK and gave me points for previous days when I wasn’t technically part of the program – bonus!  In addition to earning points for steps, you also earn points for getting a good night’s sleep.  Make sure you wear your fitness tracker at night so you can snatch those points as well.

Once you have earned 10,000 points, you can cash out for a $10 reward!

Humana Go365 (formerly Humana Vitality)

Humana Go365 will only be an option for a handful of people, but if you’re a Humana member and don’t already utilize this program, you’re missing out.  My day job is in the health insurance industry so I’ve discussed this program with several of my clients, and the benefits are amazing.

You can earn points for exercising (multiple options available), for getting your flu shot, going to the dentist, or getting an annual biometric screening just to name a few.  The point values are different depending on what you’re doing.  For instance, a biometric screening will earn you a lot of points.  Earning points from walking requires you to at least reach 10,000 steps in one day.  Specifically for exercising, you have the opportunity to earn bonus points if you multiple workouts in one week.

Once you start seeing your points increase, you can then spend your points on gift cards, movie tickets, or any of the other rewards offered.

So, there you have it – THREE programs that can help you earn extra cash/rewards simply from walking!  If you know of any others, please take a moment to leave a comment and share the details.  πŸ™‚

10 Apps That Will Significantly Trim Your Grocery Budget

**This post contains affiliate links that help support this blog.  See my disclosure policy for more information.

What's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.

If you’re like me, you’re frequently looking for ways to cut down on expenses.  This may be for groceries, household supplies, clothing…anything and everything that sucks that bank account dry.  While I can’t help you grow a money tree, I can help you find some easy ways to earn extra money and even get some of your own money back, especially on your grocery budget.  πŸ™‚

***

Some people (like me) love to coupon, but it can be hard work!  You have to keep up with a meal plan, then compare it to what’s on sale, then check to see what you already have on hand….  it’s exhausting!  While I’m currently trying to get a better plan in place for myself on all that, I have still managed to coupon for the things that I regularly use.  

I’m no extreme couponer (well, maybe a little), but I do believe it’s silly to not take advantage of the “free money” that you receive in your weekly Sunday paper or from printable coupons online.

But did you know, you can maximize your coupons even more?!  Yes, you can!  

There are apps that you can download on your phone where you can earn even more money back.  They are ah-ma-zing!!!  Even better, if there are rebates available for the same item across multiple apps, you can use all of them.  Say what?!

Most of the recommendations on this list are related to grocery shopping, and with good reason.  Grocery shopping is the one thing we all have to do, and if you’re not careful, the costs can spiral out of control.  It’s difficult to believe that the USDA estimates the monthly grocery cost for my family of 3 is over $600!  I’m at a monthly grocery budget now of $450, but have been gradually chipping away at it.  With the tips I’ve provided in this post, I’m earning back at least $100/mo, and looking for more ways to save every day.

Let’s dive in, shall we?  πŸ˜‰

Ibotta

This is hands down the king of all rebate apps.  Just with this app What's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.alone, I earn back almost a 1/4th of my grocery budget every month!  They have a WIDE selection of coupons in every category imaginable, and a LOT of stores are compatible with their app. They regularly have multiple rebates for any store, any item.  An example of that would be “save .25 cents on any brand of shredded cheese, gallon of milk, bananas, etc.”  So, while .25 is not a lot by itself, if you’re already planning to buy milk, eggs, bread, OJ, etc., those .25 cent savings will add up fast! 

Usually after 3-4 days, rebates that you’ve recently redeemed are reset so if you need to restock on a common item, you can use the same rebate again.  They also have monthly bonuses where you can earn bonuses – eeeeekkkk!!  To download their app, just go through this link here.  You’ll get an easy $1.00 off any item rebate when you sign up, plus a $10 bonus rebate when you redeem your first rebate within one week.  $11 easy dollars just. like. that!!  Once you’re ready to cash out your earnings, you can send them to Paypal or onto a wide selection of gift cards.

Once you’ve downloaded Ibotta onto your phone, I promise you’ll want to tell all your friends.  This is the one club that it’s cool for everyone to be a part of, and the more the merrier.  Every time you refer a friend to Ibotta, you’ll earn a $5 bonus!  (After downloading the app, they’ll have to redeem at least one regular branded rebate within 1 week for the bonus to apply….so not hard to do.)

P.S.  Just in case you need MORE convincing to download Ibotta to your phone, they offer rebates on more than just groceries.  You can earn extra moolah from stores like Best Buy, Joann’s, Hallmark, Toys ‘r Us, and Home Depot to name a few.  Are you finally convinced now?!  If so, just sign up here.  πŸ˜‰

Checkout51

What's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.This is my second favorite rebate app, and they also have a wide selection of offers.  Checkout51 uploads new offers every week on Thursday, and they expire the following Wednesday.  In my experience, some offers are available for more than one week, but don’t dillydally if you want to use a particular one.  Checkout51 has a quantity limit on rebates for all items.  For instance, I wanted to redeem a rebate that I had saved, but by the time I got back to the app to redeem it, it said all offers had been claimed.  Moral of that story – get ’em while you can!  Once you have reached $20 or more in earnings, they will send you a check in the mail.  Click here to sign up for this one.

MobiSaveWhat's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.

This rebate app is not quite as beefed up as the previous two, but it still has some nice offerings.  My favorite thing about it is that you get your money back the second your receipt has been approved.  All earnings are instantly downloaded to your Paypal account.  They have offers similar to Ibotta such as any brand of baking soda, any type of bandage, any type of sliced bread, etc.  You won’t get rich off this app, but it still has some great features that I really like.  Visit this link to learn more and complete the sign up process.

SavingStar

What's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.In my opinion, this app is the smallest of the four in terms of offers, but it’s still been an asset to my grocery budget.  What I like most about it is that it’s perfect to use when you’re stocking up on an item.  For example, they always have offers that say, “Save $5 off a $20 purchase of XYZ laundry detergent.”  So, if your preferred detergent brand is also on sale, you might as well stock up to reach that $20 threshold.  (Even better if you can combine with coupons!)  Here’s the link to sign up for SavingStar.

Shopkick

This is a fairly new app for me, but it has an interesting spin on earning What's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.cash back.  Basically, you earn “kicks” for walking into stores, scanning items, or purchasing items.  Usually, just for walking into a store, you earn a minimum of 25 kicks.  The range of kick points for scanning items is usually between 10-25.  Your real points come when you purchase specific items or refer your friends to sign up.  Once you’ve reached 500 kick points, you can start cashing out rewards onto gift cards.  Sign up today and earn double points when you walk into stores!

Walmart Savings Catcher

What's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.I think this particular app has been around forever, but it is super-duper convenient if you only like to shop at Walmart!  Basically, all you need to do with this app is scan the QR code at the bottom of your receipt.  The app will then scan all the local ads in your area to see if there are lower prices for the items you’ve purchased.  If the app locates any sales that are cheaper than Walmart’s price, you will receive the difference back within 3 days.  Whenever you’re ready, you can request all your savings to be downloaded to a Walmart gift card.  Cha-ching!

Cartwheel from Target

If you’re anything like me, Target is the one store I can get lost in for days!!  I literally love everything they have there!  The baby clothes are super cute (and affordable), the toy section is great, and the grocery options are a step above Walmart/Kroger in some cases.  What makes shopping there even better?  The Cartwheel app.  Simply download this app to your phone, then start adding offers.  The lowest discounts start at 5%, but I’ve seen (and used) discounts up to 50%!  Holy jamoly!  And just like I mentioned in the beginning, if you have an identical offer on multiple apps, you can take advantage of every. single. one.  

What's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.

Recently, I took advantage of a 20% beauty products Cartwheel offer on loofah sponges and mascara.  By the time I used the coupons I had on hand, then combined it with the 20% off AND the $5 gift card I got back after spending $20 on beauty, I got all those items for FREE!  

What are you waiting for?  Click the image above and download this app stat!

LozoWhat's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.

Lozo is the first recommendation I have if you are looking for grocery coupons online.  It’s another new discovery for me, but I’m already a huge fan!  First, you’ll need to set up an account and let it know what items you buy frequently.  It will do a search for coupons, and provide you with a list of everything available that matches those items.  

There’s also a great search feature to help streamline multiple pages of coupons so you can get right to the coupons you need quickly.  Once you’ve set up your account and your list, you’ll get occasional emails letting you know when new coupons are available that match your list.  Talk about a time saver, ya know?!

Coupons.comWhat's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.

When I first started printing coupons online, coupons.com was the first website I visited.  Just about any coupon I wanted/needed to print was there, plus a whole bunch of other ones that I knew I’d need later.  They’ve significantly beefed up their offers since I first heard about it, and I guarantee you’ll find something there that’s helpful for you.  For instance, if you visit their “cash back offers” section, you’ll find local restaurants that will give you cash back when you dine.  Awesome sauce!  To see everything they have to offer, visit coupons.com!

Swagbucks Coupons

I’m planning to cover Swagbucks more extensively in a future post, but for now, they deserve a place on this list, too.

What's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps. Swagbucks offers a ton of ways that you can earn points which will get you cash back.  One of them happens to be with coupons!  Simply visit the Shop tab then go to “grocery coupons.”  Every coupon that you print and redeem will earn you an 10 points back.  Quick tip – it can take awhile for your points to credit, but from personal experience, I’ve seen the points appear in my account about 3 weeks after redeeming.  Don’t have a Swagbucks account?  It’s easy to get one!  Just follow this link to sign up.

What's the one thing that can suck your money dry every month? Yep...it's your grocery budget. Check out how I've slashed mine using these 10 awesome apps.

So, there they are – TEN awesome apps that you can start earning with today!  I’ve personally tried every single one so you can rest assured they’re all legit.  πŸ˜‰

10 Essential Items for Your Diaper Changing Station

10 Essential Items for Your Diaper Changing Station

When you bring a new baby home for the first time, there are a few areas where you will spend the majority of your time.  One of those spaces is the diaper changing station.  

Back when I was pregnant, I was actually discouraged from buying one of these.  I think the individual giving me this advice had good intentions, but as an about-to-be first time mom, I wanted to be as prepared as possible!  

Every mom will have her preferences on how she wants her diaper changing station set up.  In this post, I’m going to share with you 10 must-have items so your baby’s diaper changes will be a breeze.

***

1. The changing table

So, this may seem obvious, but you actually need a designated space where you’re going to change diapers.  My little one has had more than her fair share of blowouts, and with a changing table, I always have everything within arms reach.  Our area doubles as a dresser and changing table – kinda like this one.  What I love about it is that there is plenty of room up top for the essentials, and once she outgrows it, she’ll still have it as a regular dresser.

If you’re real creative, you can re-purpose a dresser and set up a changing pad on top.  If that’s up your alley (and you have time to do it before baby arrives), then you’ll need the next item on our list.

2.  The changing pad

Well, duh – you gotta have this, too.  πŸ˜‰  If you don’t have a dresser like the one mentioned above, make sure you put a changing pad in a safe spot where you can secure your little one.  Get a changing pad that has “grippers” on the bottom so it won’t slide around while baby is squirming.  Here’s the one I use now.

3.  Changing pad covers

I recommend you have two of these on hand – one to use, and one to spare when baby has a blowout (or when she sneaks in a extra pee pee before you’ve gotten a clean diaper on her).  The ones I use have minky fabric edges, but there is a wipeable center section.10 Essential Items for Your Diaper Changing Station

4.  Diapers/wipes

I shouldn’t have to tell you that you’ll need these.   They’re kinda the whole point of having a diaper changing station…   πŸ™‚

5.  Wipe warmer

When I was pregnant, I actually received advice on these from both sides of the fence.  “It’s not needed” or “Imagine if you had a cold wipe cleaning up your behind.”  I actually went with the latter advice, and put one of these on my registry.  In hindsight, I’ve loved it.  It keeps all the wipes moist and warm, plus it has a tiny little nightlight on it, too – handy for middle of the night diaper changes when you don’t want to turn on all the lights.  

6.  Aquaphor

This stuff is like gold.  Diaper rash helper, moisturizer, salve for cuts/rashes – you name it.  When I was pregnant, I was planning to cloth diaper my little one.  One of the rules is that you don’t want to use traditional diaper rash cream on cloth diapers because it will make them less absorbent.  Aquaphor, on the other hand, was completely fine.  In the past 14 months, I have used both disposable and cloth diapers, and have used Aquaphor like it was going out of style.  Buy 2-3 bottles (one for the changing table, one for the diaper bag, and one to spare), and save a little with this coupon.

7.  Lotion

I keep a bottle of this on her changing table, and rub her down after bath time every night.  My recommendation is Johnson & Johnson’s Bedtime Lotion – it smells amazing!  When you are snuggling your little one extra close before bedtime, you will love knowing that they are wrapped in such a calming scent.  

Usually new moms get flooded with coupons for Johnson’s products, but just in case you need some, you can find them here.  

8.  Hairbrush

Right after I put on lotion after bath time, my little one’s hair gets a nice little brushing.  She’s at the age now where she wants to start doing things by herself.  Nothing is cuter than seeing her put her hairbrush up next to her head and watching her “brush” her hair.  We actually have two brushes now because it’s just getting long and thick.  Our first brush was this one (super soft bristles!!), and now, we’ve started using this one as well.

9.  Nasal aspirator

This is the one thing that your baby will hate more than anything in this world.  My little one did great with it for the first few months.  Since then, it’s like pulling teeth to clean her nose out.  The reason I keep it at the diaper changing station is because it’s easier to use it while she’s already laying down.  

You’ll likely be sent home with one from the hospital that looks like this.  You may also find that a Nose Frieda works a little better).

10.  Hand sanitizer

Last but not least, you should have a bottle of hand sanitizer.  No brainer all the way.  

***

So, there you have it!  Ten essential items for your baby’s diaper changing station.

Did I leave something off the list that you use all the time?  Let me know in the comments below.

12 Free Date Night Ideas You Can Try Tonight

I don’t know about you, but nothing is more exciting than to spend a free date night with my hubby, and know that we didn’t fork over $50 or more for entertainment!  Free date nights can be fun, exciting, and adventurous – if you’re just a little bit resourceful and creative.  πŸ™‚  

Now, we do have a little one, so our date nights are usually planned around times when she can have an overnight stay with the grandparents.  Sometimes, those nights amount to nothing more than heading to bed early (hello, my dear friend sleep!!)…other times, we can actually spend some good, quality time together.  12 Free Date Night Ideas that You Can Try Tonight | If you want to enjoy a great date with your significant other and money's a little tight, grab a free date night suggestion from this list. There’s 12 ideas here, so make sure you check them all out. Your next memorable evening could be tonight!

It goes without saying that if you’re not careful, a relationship can grow stale after awhile.  It’s so important to carve out dedicated time that you can spend with your significant other to keep the romance alive.  We have learned this the hard way, and taken each other for granted more than once.  Date nights are a great way to reconnect with each other and make some memories.  It’s a bonus when you can do that for little to no money!

Here’s a list of 12 free date night ideas that have been tried and tested by us. I hope you can find something here to inspire your next date night!

***

1.  River walk

Living where we do, we have (semi) convenient access to the Mississippi River.  Back before we got married, we drove down to the river a handful of times and simply enjoyed each other’s company.  The views are spectacular, the setting was ultra-romantic…what more could you ask for?  

2.  At-home movie night

This free date night idea has become our #1 choice, and for good reason – it’s super convenient!  With Netflix available anytime and lots of movies on demand, we can narrow something down in just a matter of moments.  Comedies, dramas, and sometimes, a comic book movie are some of our favorites.

12 Free Date Night Ideas that You Can Try Tonight | If you want to enjoy a great date with your significant other and money's a little tight, grab a free date night suggestion from this list. There’s 12 ideas here, so make sure you check them all out. Your next memorable evening could be tonight!3.  Spa night

Now, I may have hit the jackpot here, but my husband should have been a masseuse.  He gives such a great massage!  This free date night idea requires very little except some lotion or massage oil and a comfortable place to lay/sit down.  Foot rubs, back rubs – whatever floats your boat here.  It’s an easy way to relax.  

4.  Stargazing

Grab some blankets, spread them in the back yard, and watch the stars.  Hubby and I have done this several times (the last time being while I was pregnant), and this was a nice and calm way to spend time together.  Bonus points if you live in an area that’s away from the city lights – the stars shine so much brighter.

5.  Game night

We haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy this one in a long time, but game night can be a fun way to spend a few hours together.  Hubby and I both are ultra-competitive, but we’ve managed to win our fair share (in spite of all the times that I’ve almost throttled him for getting to Boardwalk first).  Monopoly has always been one of our personal favorites along with Farkle, Skip-bo, Sorry, Rack-o, and Rummikub.  (Hubby would love it if every game night had us playing Star Wars Trivial Pursuit, but a girl’s gotta put her foot down, y’know?)  πŸ˜‰

6.  Taking a walk down Memory Lane

Honestly, this can happen pretty much anytime, but this is one of my favorite ways to pass the time with hubby.  Since having a baby, I can’t count the number of times that we’ve just taken some time and looked back at all our pictures of her and how our family has changed and grown.  Other times, we’ll reminisce about some of our favorite vacations.  One of us may have had a bad day, but going back to revisit these memories always cheers us up.  


 7.  Winning tickets to an event

This one has only happened a few times, but it’s always been a guaranteed way to get us doing something different.  We’ve each won tickets to sports events, concerts, live shows – you name it.  The only downsides are that your tickets may be in the nosebleeds, and you may only have a day’s notice or less.  However, if you’re looking to do something out of the ordinary, this free date night idea is usually a winner.

8.  Visit your nearest parkWhy not enjoy a free date night with another special someone? Grab the dogs and the leash and head off to the park for some quality time together.

Grab the sunscreen or bug spray – depending on what time of day you head out.  Get some exercise with each other, and talk about your day, week, etc.  If you have them, take your dogs with you.  They’ll enjoy some extra time outside, too.  Hubby and I have done this several times, and it’s always a great way to de-stress.

9.  Video game night

So, this is similar to game night, but just with video games.  Hubby and I squeezed in a LOT of these right before baby girl was born, and although he is definitely better at it than I am, he does know that he has to let a girl win once in a while.  πŸ™‚

10.  Offer to house-sit

This would be more like a date weekend.  It’s the closest you can get to a free hotel stay, but of course, without the maid service.  In the early days of our marriage, we were asked to do this several times, and it was perfect (considering we lived with family and a few days by ourselves was always welcome).  A couple of days in a different environment can be just the trick to reconnect with your significant other.  Another bonus – you can ignore the ringing phone because it likely will never be for you.

11.  Pack a picnic basket

Picnic baskets are great for lunch or dinner and can be enjoyed year round.  Depending on the season, you can either head outdoors or cuddle together inside on a chilly night in front of the fireplace.   Pack some of your favorite goodies that are ideal to eat later along with a blanket, and head to any memorable spot nearby.

12.  Invite another couple over and make it a double date

A double date is perfect when you have met a new couple and want to see how you all connect.  Fire up the grill with some burgers, hot dogs, or whatever you enjoy.  We have done this several times, and I’ve found that having dinner at home with another couple rather than eating out somewhere helps everyone relax a lot more.  You’re not anxiously waiting for your meal to be served – instead, you’re all helping to create it in some way.

 

***

So, there you go – 12 ideas for a free date night! Which ones have you tried, or do you have any others to add to the list?
