There are so many ways to save money! Truth is it can become a bit overwhelming to learn a store’s policies and practices for maximizing savings on products that you are going to use anyway.

Random thought: Why are there ads for Toilet Paper? Who needs to be sold on the benefits? 😉

Convenience comes with a price tag. Start saving money NOW! The easier it is to get items that you need=the more money you will pay to purchase them. Think about buying a soda/coke/bottled drink at the gas station instead of in a larger quantity at the store. You are going to end up paying the same or similar amount for 20 ounces that you could pay for 2 liters. That does not make much sense, does it?

It has nothing to do with the quantity of product you are buying and everything to do with the convenience of buying. We live in a world where you can buy or have just about anything with very little time to wait or very little effort has to be made to consume.

There are still ways that you can have the things that you want and need without the hefty price tag that comes with instant gratification.

Make sure to watch the video AND enter the Facebook giveaway for your chance to win a mystery box (minimum $50 value!!) and learn some tips on how to start saving money now.

Enjoy 😊

Instant Pot Box

Instant Pot purchased 11/2019 from Kohls.com

The Instant Pot has been making news for over a year in the world of kitchen appliances. There were posts all over social media over the Christmas 2018 season with this popular buy.

I am barely domesticated and I waited to jump on the bandwagon. I know how to cook, but I am also a mom that supports cereal for dinner. Saving money is critical, and because I am motivated to do so, I made this purchase to increase the ease of meal prep and the likelihood that I will cook at home….more often.

This model of the Instant Pot retails for almost $100!

Check out the breakdown below to see how this purchase cut that price in half!

Instant Pot Purchase Breakdown
  • Sale Price on 11/11/19 @ http://www.kohls.com $79.99
  • Veterans Day Discount ($10)
  • Kickoff15 Discount ($9)
  • Entertain10 Discount ($10)
  • Free Shipping ($8.95)
  • After all of the discounts applied, the resulting total is: $54.05
    • That’s a savings of almost 46% off Retail

The purchase resulted in earning $10 Kohls Cash for use either in-store or online. Therefore, reducing the total out of pocket expense to $44.05.

Because I am barely domesticated, I waited to jump on the bandwagon. I know how to cook, but I am also a mom that supports cereal for dinner. I love saving money, and because I am motivated to so so, I wanted to make this purchase to increase the ease of meal prep and the likelihood that I will cook at home….more often.

The purchase required a payment of $54.05 Luckily, Ibotta allows for a withdrawal of funds in the form of various gift cards and Paypal.

Ibotta Payout Options

Ibotta held a balance of just over $75 available for withdrawal. Transferring $55 of the savings transferred to PayPal covered the cost of the Instant Pot and completed the transaction. $20-$25 is required for several withdrawal options.

$54.05 covered by savings on items my home uses- Ibotta Instant Pot Free 🙂

Do you love Tide? Just a little creativity and it can be yours for FREE! This is an easy product to maximize savings and I often run across this for a minimal Out of Pocket (OOP) cost. Unfortunately, we are a house full of people that cannot use it, so it goes into gift/donations. Whether you are interested in this for that purpose OR you can use it in your home, this is a great time to buy.

Couple a print coupon with the current Tide Pods IBoTTa offer and a 16 ct Tide Pods is yours for -$0.06! (Before any applicable tax)

Here’s How…..(1,2,3)

1) Download Ibotta (you’ll be glad you did!) Show us both some ❤️ and use my referral link.

P.S. any referral bonuses you or I receive do not cost you anything!

https://ibotta.com/r/cgjdvap

If you sign up without the link, make sure to enter code CGJDVAP when prompted 😘

There is some more information about Ibotta here: https://happykotter.com/2019/11/17/saving-on-saturdays/

Here’s a link to make it easy. If the site requires, you may need to create an account to print (again totally FREE) Pic below for reference…

3) Head to Walmart 😁

Pay $3.24

Upload your receipt to Ibotta (you can scan the QR code on your printed receipt)
