We thought that our moving process would be a bit smoother but it has taken us over 6 months to finally sell our home and move on with our lives. At this point I am just about debt free if you don’t count my car payment. Next month I will definitely start seeing the savings as we won’t have as many payments coming out of our bank and the stress of it all is now feeling so much better.
We are able to get things done that needs to get done without really stressing about it now. I am more and more using my apps that help us save money so that we will be able to build up our family fun fund. Check out the following apps that have helped me increase my entertainment fund for our family. The following apps have really helped us out with saving money.
Swagbucks has been a blessing we have managed to save up enough points for over $1000 in gift cards. We mainly just answer surveys, watch videos, discover new products, search the internet and do online shopping. You are able to earn points that can be redeemed for Paypal and many different gift cards. Swagbucks has multiple apps that you can use to earn even more points if you like Trivia there is SWAGIQ and if you enjoy bowling there is even a bowling app where you earn points as well.

When I am doing my grocery shopping I also use Checkout 51, Saving Star, Receipt Hog and MobiSave. My favorite places to do my grocery shopping lately would have to be Walmart, Smiths (Kroger) and Kmart. Since they have rewards programs and coupon programs themselves as well that really helps. There are smartphone applications for each of those stores as well. Kmart is Shop Your Way, Walmart has Savings Catcher and Smiths has Digital Coupons.
I have also been enjoying the app Very Dice its a game that you roll dice to earn points for amazon purchases. You are able to get bonuses for rolling doubles and when you get double 1 through 6 within a 24 hour period you can get earn even more bonuses. I have earned over 30,000 points and they will come in handy during the holidays for Christmas Shopping or even just to buy a fun treat. Right now there is an offer if you don’t already have the app or if you have not entered a friend code of receiving 30 extra rolls by entering this friend code (736164).
