100 Ways Thrifty People Save Money
3 Actions You Can Take Today To Start Saving More Money
Several of my thrifty people posts contain mentions of the same companies, or methods to save money over and over because they are great ways to save money on just about anything.Here are three that I mention over and over.
1. Join And Use Cash Back Apps And Websites
Even if you are on a tight budget you still have to spend money on groceries, personal items, clothing and more so you might as well earn cash back on those purchases.
Here are three our thrifty family uses
- Ibotta: This app can save you money on both instore and online purchases. The variety of stores Ibotta offers cash backs for is so numerous chances are several places you shop are on their list. Use my referral code qttqg when you sign up and get $10 in cash back when you use the app for the first time within 15 days of signing up. Go here to sign-up for Ibotta.
- Ebates: Ebates is a cash back company with a website, a browser extension, and an app –making it so convenient to use. I really like the google browser extension feature as it reminds me that there is a cash back offered at the store I am about to order at. Go here to sign-up for Ebates.
- FetchRewards: This is a simple to use app that will save you money on groceries. Just grocery shop, then upload your receipt for points. How many points you earn depends on what brands you bought and what special offers they have available at the time you uploaded your receipt. Use my referral code RE9FU at sign-up and receive 1500 points when you complete one receipt. (that puts you halfway to your first cash out right there). Here is a tutorial I wrote explaining how to use FetchRewards.
2. Join Websites That Offer Great Discounts On Brands You Love
- Zulily: Zulily offers a wide variety of limited time sales on brand name clothing, home decor, and even food. Two things I have purchased for less than anywhere else through Zulily are name brand running shoes like Brooks and ASIC’s and Birkenstocks summer sandals. Go here to sign-up or explore Zulily.
- ThredUp: ThredUp is an online clothing consignment store for both children and women with a HUGE selection of like new and new with tag items. I get most of my work-out clothing from ThredUp through their NWT area. Go here to sign-up or explore ThredUp
- Living Social: Our Thrifty family has used Living Social numerous times to save money on family outings and more. Go here to sign-up or explore Living Social
3. Never Stop Learning
Consider purchasing a few thrifty living resource books. My number one favorite is The Complete Tightwad Gazette. I refer to it for frugal tips, recipes, and gift ideas over and over. And in case you didn’t know I wrote a book for those wanting to embrace the thrifty lifestyle it is called Thrifty & Thriving: More Life For Less Money and you can purchase it on Amazon in either Paperback or Kindle.
One final tip sign up and use point reward programs such as Swagbucks, Bing Rewards, and IntsaGC and start earning gift cards that you can use to spend in whatever area of your budget you desire. These companies have gift cards for restaurants, clothing stores and more.
