- Facebook, Craiglist and Nextdoor
People are just looking for ways to get rid of their things sometimes and they might not want to deal with hauling it out themselves or they might not be able to bear the thought of throwing away an item that they once cherished. Local people looking to give things away do so through sites such as Facebook, Craiglist and Nextdoor. You can then repurpose, renew and reuse the items gotten from them. Be thankful for the generosity and get creative with the item.
- Coupon apps like Ibotta and Checkout 51
Apps like Ibotta and Checkout 51 offer rebates by submitting a picture of your receipt after you shop. Before shopping, check the app for offers that apply to you and make note of them on your shopping list. If you are not super brand specific, it isn’t hard to find triple savings that can result in a free item. Let me explain. You need ketchup, but you don’t care what brand. You go on your Ibotta app and lo-and-behold- there is a dollar off savings for Ketchup! You peruse Checkout 51 and- bam! They have one too. Now for the ringer, check the store app and see if they have a sale or a digital coupon that may apply as well. On occasion, you will be lucky enough to hit all three and walk away with free items. And from time to time, using just the Ibotta app, there are free purchase deals that stand alone and don’t need to be combined to benefit. Combining coupons in this way maximizes efforts by getting free stuff and keeping grocery bills down too. Whatever your way to save and shop, keep socking away those dollars.
