Don’t you just feel great when you walk into a mall store and all the sales clerks are welcoming and smiling at you? You feel like everyone is so nice and they all see you as the truly great person that you are….Don’t be fooled! They hear that jingle in your pockets and they want to put it in theirs. Here are some tips on how to hold onto your hard earned money.
100- The less you go out, the less you’ll spend. Think about where you’re going to spend your day and what will likely happen. Put all your loose change and extra dollars in a cookie jar and add a wish list in there too.
Savings opportunities are always available and it is up to us to seek them out. Be proactive in your spending and consider all options before making a purchase.
Tips for More Savings:
A quick and easy way to add to your finances is to search for discounts. I never buy anything unless it’s 50% off the sale price. This is easily accomplished by sticking to the clearance section of most websites.
Another way to save is claiming rebates! If you haven’t heard of Ebates, they are the rebate royalty of the internet. Cash back ranges between 1%-20%, potentially free shipping included, and you will receive $10.00 instantly for signing up through The Rising Damsel.
You can save on literally 1,000’s of different websites and products daily with Ebates. I got my husband obsessed when he found out he could save on all the clothes he buys. Now he won’t purchase anything without checking the site, and even saved us $45 bucks this month on our new microwave!! If you have to buy it, see if you can get cash back, it’s so easy with Ebates. The best part of Ebates is that it’s completely free to use, and the savings are unlimited.
- Using Ibotta will let you instantly claim $10.00 just for signing up through The Rising Damsel. Ibotta will pay out as soon as you reach $20.00. Unlock coupons, for items you would have bought anyways, snap a picture of the receipt, get paid. I save at least $15.00 a month using Ibotta and the potential to earn is everywhere. My team mates continually make $50 + a month in rebates. That’s real money.
- Swagbucks Browse the app, watch videos, take surveys, play games. There’s a $5.00 bonus through The Rising Damsel. *Protip* Best way to spend your Swagbucks is on $5.00 Amazon gift cards they are only 450 points, and cheaper in comparison to other offers.
If you have access to Amazon food delivery service, it’s worth the effort to do a cost analysis. Things to consider: gas, your time and purchase cost (which all add up). With AmazonFresh food delivery, you can skip the physical shopping hassle, avoid the lines and save money by not being tempted by impulse buying.
Amazon Guarantees delivery within 2 hours. With Amazon’s recent acquisition of Whole Foods, I foresee even more healthy options and product availability. The monthly fee is now $14.99 for unlimited deliveries as a standalone, and only $10.99/ month with Prime. If you aren’t already a Prime or AmazonFresh member it can add seriously valuable time back into your life.
