I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the hunt to save money and make money from home. It’s vitally important to me that I maintain some sense of independence even if I am a stay at home homeschooling mom. One of the things the internet has taught me is a broad range of simple ways one can put more money in your pockets. I’ve been talking to my friends lately, and it has shocked me how many of them don’t know these little tips and tricks to make it happen. I decided it was high time to create a roundup of things that I do that has helped me have more money each month to play with or pay off that bill that drives you nuts every time the bill comes in the mail.

Round UP Every Expense

This sounds like common sense, but there is still a vast majority of people who DON’T put this into practice. I have physical piggy banks that I got from Dollar Tree. Anytime I retrieve physical change it goes straight to those banks.

Also, many banks offer to do this anytime you use your debit card with them too. They will automatically transfer the change to a savings account of your choice with their bank.

Average earnings a month: $20-50 a month.

Simple Ways You Can Put More Money IN Your Pockets helps you take advantage of earning money for things you ALREADY do! These tips are too easy to pass up.

Ibotta

This by far one of my favorite apps to earn money back from things I already do. Ibotta is an app that gives you cash back for making purchases on many different selected items from major retailers. They have now made an update that has increased my earnings. One can get money back from shopping on Amazon, using Uber, and Groupon and many more places online.

I haven’t used this app for long, and I’ve already earned almost $45.00. I love the fact that I can cash out via PayPal with only a $20.00 minimum.

ShopKick

ShopKick is another one of those apps that are remarkably easy to earn rewards. It’s as simple as walking into a store. ShopKick gives you Kicks for walking into major retailers like Walmart, Bi-Lo, CVS, and much more. While you’re there, you can earn even more Kicks just for scanning products that they request. Then IF you choose to purchase those same items listed and you scan your receipts, you gain even more Kicks.

These Kicks can be redeemed for gift cards to Walmart, T.J. Maxx, and Target (YES, I said Target!!) just to name a few. It doesn’t take long for the Kicks to add up either. I’ve seen some people sign up and by the end of the day, they have the ability to cash out for a gift card.

Ebates

This is another website that will give you cash back for shopping online. You can earn money back with some stores in person. If you get the mobile app, you’ll be able to know which stores you can earn money back instantly.

Ebates gives you money back via PayPal or a check. I haven’t used this program quite as much as I probably should have.

I have earned $19.83 to date so far.

Walmart Groceries 

Walmart has started letting you place your grocery order using their app or online service and then you DRIVE up and pick it up. What's neat is if you use my referral link you and I both get $10.00 worth of groceries. One of the neat perks I think is a selling point to me is the fact that if they don't have what you want in stock they will replace it with something of higher value at no additional cost.

Swagbucks

I LOVE SWAGBUCKS!

These simple 2-3 minute tasks earn me Swagbucks by doing them daily:

  • Answer their poll question/questions
  • Do the daily search
  • Check out the daily deal
  • Keep them as my primary search engine.

I have cashed out many times throughout the year. I’ve been able to get kids birthday gifts with these gift cards that they loved. Since I use the extension I also gain Swagbucks when they send out a Swagcode.

TopCashback

TopCashback is another site that gives you cash back for purchases you make online. It offers up some pretty high percentages back for things you already plan on buying. TopCashback has some companies that the other sites don’t have.

Groupon

Groupon is a money savings site in and of itself. You can find deals for MANY things on there. I can remember when I thought it was only for travel deals. They have deals in a wide range of things.

As a homeschooler obtaining homeschool supplies on a budget, I appreciate the fact that Groupon offer discounts on things I need AND want! Their travel deals are quite awesome too.

Coupons

Dollar General Logo

Through also using coupon saving apps I put more money in my pockets. The Dollar General app is my favorite because they provide loads of coupons on the app for products I already use daily. The also give me coupons to use on Saturdays that save me $3-5 dollars. PLUS, there are many items that are redeemable for money through Ibotta too. Also, I can use manufacturer coupons there too. Dollar General is a place that is full of money making opportunities.

Get FREE shipping on all orders $40 or more online at DollarGeneral.com!

Don't forget to check out your favorite coupon bloggers site for even more ways to save and earn money. Yes, people DO in fact get money back from using coupons.
