Get Rewarded for Being an Opinionated Momma!

This is a sponsored post. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Are you an opinionated mom?

Wait…. aren’t ALL moms pretty opinionated? I think it comes with the territory, right? We’ve seen stuff. We KNOW stuff. And, in the chaos of the constant daily juggling of home and groceries and meals and sports and carpool and homework and social life and personal life…. Well, we have to handle a lot of stuff, we make a lot of decisions, and that gives us a LOT of info to give as feedback to the brands who make the sites, stores, services, products, and prices that we deal with in each of those chaotic days.

Share your opinions and get free stuff!

Have you ever wished that you could share an idea or opinion directly with a company you love to create positive change? Like, a favorite flavor that you totally wish your favorite yogurt maker would start offering? A new style of packaging that would make hauling snacks to after-school sports and activities a million times simpler and cleaner? Well – now is your chance to share those opinions, AND get rewarded for all of your smarty pants thoughts! Winning, right? [Read more…]

New Way to Save Big on Groceries – Without Using Coupons!

I shopped savvy using Walmart Saving Catcher, as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #SavingsCatcher. Sharing because I love this, and I know you will too!

I used to be a pretty serious couponer. I wasn’t ever one who could pull off the Extreme Coupon style trips, where you pay less than a buck for a cart of groceries {although I have friends who can do that!} But I regularly saved 40% or more on my shopping trip by matching sales and clipping coupons. But, as life has gotten more hectic {kids, my online business, expanding that business, etc} I have less time to devote to things. I still use coupons EVERY time I shop. I’m a big believer in using every avenue available to earn extra money – survey sites, freelance writing, cash back sites, and more. {See my most popular post of all time – Ways to Earn Money From Home – for more tips.} Which is all leading up to me telling you about THE coolest new idea for saving money/earning free money that I’ve found in a LONG time! Check it out…

How to Save Big On Groceries - without using coupons! Sweet trick.

“The way to wealth depends on just two words, industry and frugality.” – Benjamin Franklin

So, let me tell you about this cool new app and website. It’s from Walmart, and it’s called Savings Catcher. And here’s why it rocks – it guarantees that you get THE best prices on everything you buy, without having to price match the ads, or run to a million different stores. You simply enter the info from your receipt into your app, or log into the Savings Catcher website when you get home. It takes a couple of days to search all of your local stores – then refunds if any of the products you bought were cheaper at any of those stores! Super cool, right? See it in action here: [Read more…]
