20+ Ways We Saved & Earned This Week and You Can Too

20 Ways We Saved and Earned This Week

Ways We Saved & Earned This Week and You Can Too


  • Created a menu for the month, and then a monthly list based on our on hand supplies and the meals we wanted to eat.
  • Picked up our Kroger Freebie.
  • Searched and loaded digital coupons from Kroger & Target for the items we wanted to purchase.
  • Printed additional coupons from Swagbucks*, Kleenex.com, Prairie Farms.com, Curly’s and Living Rich With Coupons.
  • Checked and shopped clearance at each of the stores, BEFORE we purchased the full priced items, and we only purchased items on our original list.
  • Used our Kroger Best Customer Coupons, that we received in the mail, to save $3.00 on meat
  • Purchased “markdown” meat.  This is meat that is marked down because it needs to be sold within just a few days.  We purchase it all the time and put it straight into the freezer.  Everyone in our family raves about our roasts and ribeyes when they visit.  They are almost always from the mark down section.  (We can’t afford high cuts otherwise.)
  • Purchased some meats, cheeses and fruit in bulk even though they weren’t in our original budget.  The price was great, and after hubby I discussed it, we agreed that we could afford it this month.  It will save us over $100 in the long run.  For detail on this purchase.  Click here.

  • Shopped Aldi’s for as many staples items as possible.  (Milk $1.79, Hormone Free Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts $1.49 a lb.)
  • Used our Target Redcard to receive an additional 5% off.
  • Used the Target Cartwheel to receive an additional 5%-20% off items purchased there.
  • Cashed in my Kelloggs Family Rewards points for coupons.


  • Ibotta*
  • Referred friends to Ibotta and they earned a $10 bonus when they turned in their first purchase and I earned $5.  (This only works if you use this referral or another from a friend.  You can use this link or the one previously and earn the same $10 bonus by signing up today.  It is a limited offer.)
  • Swagbucks*  It takes less than two minutes a day and leads to gift cards I can use in store or online.  Use this link and I will be awarded for referring you, but your account will not be affected at all.
  • Filled out  a Kroger Receipt Survey and earned 50 pts towards fuel rewards
  • Inbox Dollars*
  • Purina Cat Chow Pet Perks
  • Receipt Hog
