3 Ways to Save on Spending this Spring



Spring is almost here! Alright, so really it's a few weeks away and a lot of areas are dealing with some cold temperatures still. I can't be the only one thinking and planning for this season already, right?

So if you are on a tight budget, you are probably looking for ways to save without breaking the bank. From fashion to food to entertainment, I wanted to highlight a few spots where you can save money without spending a lot of money!

1) Save on Groceries.

There are a few apps I want to recommend. First, iBotta. Have you heard of this one? Basically you redeem money back after you purchase the item at the store. I've had some occasional success with this and was able to cash out once at $20. A lot of the things I buy aren't really on here too often but it does add up. They offer also generic things like buying a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk will get you some change back.

Also another one to consider is - Checkout51! This is similar to iBotta but I feel like  I like this a tad better. They're app is easier to navigate as well. You do scan some items but it's clearer to figure out if your product matches with the offer (I had issues with that with iBotta).  I believe that when you are ready to checkout (at $20) they will send you a check.

Also, some areas where you will find some great coupons - Mambo Sprouts, Hopster, and Lozo (which is a fantastic way to see most available coupons at once!)

2) Save on Style.

There are definitely amazing ways to save on style. First StyleWe has some amazing savings on clothes that you can find. Same with Just Fashion Now. They offer up some amazing deal on fashion for the spring that you must check out!

One other ways that you can save with fashion is by selling some of your clothes! Poshmark is one place you can go to. Also if you want an different way to shop, use Listia! You basically use points you've earned on the site to purchase things (usually you only have to pay shipping costs, sometimes not even that!). You can get a ton of points by listing some of your own stuff you don't want anymore.  I highly recommend it because a lot of fashion is listed on the site!

3) Save on Entertainment.

One cool tip is that if you want access to free movies, make sure you see if "Advanced Screenings" is in your area. They offer up ways you can get advanced screenings to movies and this is an excellent way of saving while still having fun! Also, if you want to put together a decently sized reading list for a long weekend, make sure you check out Overdrive. You can borrow ebooks with a library card from a library within your area. It's easy to use whether you use your Kindle to read or any smart phone. I personally use this all the time!

So this of course just scratches the surface and there are so many resources out there in your local area on how to get deals on things you enjoy the most. Hopefully I've helped you out with finding some new gems!

  1. Id heard about biota, but never tried it. I hadn't heard about checkout51. It sounds like I should check into it.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.

If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!

I recently had the chance to try out the "American Gluten-Free" food box. Here's the photo of what I received -
