Need some quick and easy ways to save money? Read below on what I try to do to save a $ on the daily!
1.) Plan out Weekly Groceries & Cook Meals at Home
With a house full of boys, you bet that our grocery bill is only growing on a weekly basis. Even with our kids’ pickiness over vegetables, it seems like we’re always running out of food. I try my best to plan out weekly groceries, even if it’s just a list on our dry erase board or a note I keep on my phone. It helps me to track of all of our food shopping. And it makes me more conscious of not eating out too! While the grocery bill might increase, I’ve noticed that when I cook more at home, our monthly food bills are significantly lower than when we eat out or get take-out. Now that my nausea has passed for the most part, I’m able to cook (and eat!) a lot at home.
2.) Buy in Bulk
A huge money saver is buying in bulk! We love to buy household supplies like toilet paper, cleaning supplies, paper towels, and non-perishable food items in bulk every month. It’s a time and money saver and everyone is happy that we’re usually well stocked on all of our favorite snacks. I love that having a bulk supply of household goods means that I’m not making random trips to the store to pick up one or two things.
3.) Brew Coffee at Home
You know how much I love my coffee. But for how much and often I drink it, it would be too costly for me to buy my coffee drinks every day. We brew a pot (or two!) every day and I save my splurges for the weekends or for a coffee date with a friend. I love our coffee from home, which makes it not so much of a sacrifice, but buying ground coffee in bulk also helps us to save money in an easy way.
4.) Use Gumdrop Browser Extension
Like I mentioned earlier, I don’t do well with clipping coupons. For all of my online shopping, I use my Gumdrop by Goodshop browser extension that automatically finds and activates the best coupons and deals for me, no matter where I shop online. When using Gumdrop, I know that I’m getting a great deal because it searches through a database of over 500,000 coupons/deals for the best ones! I love using the Gumdrop by Goodshop browser extension because it automatically displays on my screen the best coupons and deals for that store without having to leave the page or deal with any annoying pop-up windows.
I’ve realized that just by a simple click, Gumdrop saves time and effort in finding coupons. It’s the perfect solution for the anti-couponing lady like me. On top of helping me to save money quickly and easily, Gumdrop has a great philanthropic cause! Whenever you purchase using a coupon/deal from Gumdrop, Goodshop donates to your favorite cause – at no cost to you! The cause can be anything from a large non-profit to a personal cause that you created. So far, Goodshop has donated almost $13 million. Installing Gumdrop is free, so be sure to download it for use now!
And BONUS! For your chance to win a $100 Visa gift card, comment below and tell me what cause you would choose to donate to when using Gumdrop?
