Save Money

We all like to save money. But with retirement in our near future saving money hasn’t become a choice but it has become a lifestyle. Not only do we need to live with less we need to do it with less money. So here are some ways I cut back without feeling like I’m cutting back. Check back often I’ll keep adding on as I find things. If you know of a good site let me know!

First and foremost, Groceries, this is possibly the biggest expense for anyone. And I know for myself with 2 adult kids living at home, this is most possibly the hardest! Well, I found a website that helps you save money on groceries and other things without all the work. Free Tastes Good

We all love to shop! I know I do! If you don’t use Ebates you need to! You earn money just but going through their site. Install the button on your browser it will make it even easier. This is a free service that pays you! Clicking the site above helps me out towards referrals so please help me out.

Another site that pays you to shop is TopCashBack Click here. This is like Ebates but they offer different stores and different amounts back. They have promotions that are you look at different offers and find a hummingbird you can win cash or entries into sweepstakes. Again if you join from the link above I get referral credit so please help a girl out!

Like to go out to eat? Like free food?? Then you must check out this ! It has all the restaurants listed that give you anything from a free dinner for your birthday to a buy one get one free ice cream sundae! Now that is Awesome!
