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.
