Save & Make Money

This page is a work in progress and I will be frequently adding new items so check back for updates!

Adding an extra stream of income to your budget is always a good idea. I have added several to our household over the last few years. I wanted to share just a few of the ways I save and earn money for my family. I do want to tell you that these links below are affiliate links you can read my full disclosure here.

My main source of income is my home based business. It allows me to not only make money from home but it also provides my family with free groceries every month. I help busy families conquer their meal time dilemmas! My main passion though, is showing other people how to make money from home too. If you think you might be interested, you can get more info about that here.


I’m a major online shopper and one of the easiest ways to save/make money on my purchases is to use eBates. It’s super simple, you go to and search for the store you were going to shop at anyway and click to shop. They’ve made it even easier to find what you are looking for with a Google Chrome extension. When you’re shopping on a website, you’re little ebates icon turns red and you’ll get a small popup asking you if you want to activate your % of cash back. Super simple! You can create a free account by clicking the image below.

Another way I save money is by using the iBotta app on my phone. It’s free to create an account and you can earn money back on individual items. It’s great because it’s stuff we normally buy all the time anyway. You know, stuff like milk, paper towels…wine 🙂 If you connect it with your Facebook account, it will add you to a team of all your friends who are using ibotta too and you can get extra $ back each month if your team hits a certain savings amount.
