get the tools that save you more time and money

Welcome! If you’re new to my blog, it’s no secret around here that I love saving time AND money to keep me organized. Because the truth is, managing an entire household can be hard at times. And to be honest, I’ve had many days when I thought that I was going to lose my mind.

But I was FINALLY able to get my home (and life!) under control once I simplified the way that I clean my house, track our spending, and get food on the table. Spoiler Alert: I wasn’t able to do it successfully on my own.

There’s a lot of secret weapons that I keep in my back pocket that make my life easier and more organized, which is why I created wanted to create this resource page so that you can find them all right here! These are the exact products and services I use or recommend over and over in one place, and I’m confident they’ll help you save more time, energy, and money too!

By the way, this page contains some affiliate links, which helps to keep this website running and to support my family, at no additional cost to you (thank you!). Furthermore, I would never recommend any product or company I haven’t personally used and/or verified. You may read my full disclosure policy for more information.

money-saving resources

ibotta app

This is a rebate app that pays you FREE cash back for items you already buy at the grocery store! I absolutely LOVE to use Ibotta to save money on groceries (like milk, cereal, wine, detergent, and more!).

You just upload a pic of your receipt to claim your free cash back, then you can make a cash withdrawal via check, PayPal or gift card once you’ve earned $20 in your Ibotta account.

This is the most popular (and my favorite!) spot online to take surveys and get paid! You earn points for completing surveys that you can redeem for cash via Paypal or e-Giftcards. I absolutely love taking paid surveys to earn extra cash in my spare time.

Sling Tv is like cable tv but at a FRACTION of the cost since you only pay for the channels you actually watch. So if you’ve cut the cord, sign up to stream Sling TV channels for FREE!
