I am in love with the new Fetch App. It’s an easy money saving hack that will earn you gift cards quickly and easily. You just download the app and enter my referral code, RP6FG, during sign up and you’ll get 2,000 Fetch Points. Every 1000 points will get you a $1 Amazon gift card. You can enter receipts and get around 200 points per receipt. You can see some other ways I earn free gift cards here.
Another easy money saving hack is to stockpile things you use. You don’t have to go crazy, just buy a couple extra boxes of cereal when your favorite is on sale. It only takes a few extra seconds to add some extra to your cart and it will help you save all year long. $5-$10 dollars saved each week by stockpiling will add up to big savings. If you want to start stockpiling check out my sensible ways to start stockpiling.
Using an envelope system is one of the easiest money saving life hacks. Using cash instead of a debit or credit card is an easy way to save money. Trips to the grocery store and the mall suddenly get cheaper when you only have so much money to spend. It really doesn’t have to involve a lot of work or time to save money. If you want to get serious about using cash you can start an envelope system. You can see how my family uses the envelope system to control our spending here.
