The first rule is to not shop hungry. If you try to grocery shop while you are starving, you'll end up with a bunch of extra foods that you really didn't need.
Shop once a week and create a well thought out store list by including everything you need. This will save you time and gas money later. The less you shop the more you save. How many times have you went to the store for a gallon of milk and spent $30? That's some expensive milk!
Milk will keep longer if you push it to the back of the refrigerator. Buy one more than you think you'll need so you'll definitely have enough and keep them in the back.
What is Ebates?
Ebates is a website that offers up to 40% cash back to those of us that start our shopping trip with them. Plus they offer coupons and promo codes. You can use Ebates online and/or iPhone and Android and it's FREE!
Exactly how does it work?
One way I make some extra cash is with Swagbucks. It's free to get an account and they give you Swagbucks (SB) just for signing up. It's an online rewards program that gives members virtual currency for participating in their offers.
Swagbucks can be traded for free merchandise, gift cards, or transferred to your PayPal account. I personally save mine until I have $50 and then I transfer it to PayPal.
Some people are confused as to how much real bucks Swagbucks are worth. To clarify, it is between 1-2 cents.
