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…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway

​​

I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
