Grocery Makeover

Do you struggle to keep your grocery spending in check? Do you wish you could cut back your food spending and save hundreds per week?

Keeping grocery costs down can be tough. I used to waste so much money on grocery shopping. I tried everything, even extreme couponing, but it never worked. Then, I discovered the secret to saving money on groceries. 

Save Hundreds a Week on Groceries

Everything changed when I discovered The Grocery Budget Makeover. It’s an online class that completely changes the way you approach grocery shopping. The class was fantastic. Not only did it change the way I managed my grocery shopping experience, but it cut our grocery bill in half. 

The class is $49, but I made up for that quickly by reducing my grocery spending by hundreds of dollars each week. There are also payment plans available.

I’m always on the lookout for ways to help you with your money situation. I know this class will make a huge difference in your life. 

What You Get With the Class

This class is very thorough. The classic edition has 10 video lessons, 10 lesson worksheets, and access to a Facebook support group. The extreme edition includes all of that plus 3 Accountability & Group Coaching Calls with Erin, Bonus Video & Worksheet: Store Hopping, and Bonus Video & Worksheet: Deep Dive Couponing. It’s worth it! you will never shop the same again.

How to Register

The Grocery Budget Makeover is taught by Erin Chase.  First, you can take her free introductory workshop here.  Registration for the actual class is only open for a week starting September 6th. If you click over to her site right now and register for her waiting list, then you will be the first to get in when it’s time. If you are reading this post between Sept. 6th to Sept. 11th then you can register here, but if you go before or after those dates then the link won’t work. Be sure to sign up for the waiting list until the link goes live.

Are You Overspending on School Supplies?

6 Essentials That Are Surprisingly Cheaper On Amazon

Did you know the average K12 parent spend $100 on school supplies? That’s not counting new school clothes and backpacks… That’s just the basics like pens and paper! So how can you make sure you don’t overspend on supplies this school year? I’ve researched and compared prices for many basic essentials and have compiled a list of which items are cheaper on Amazon.

Now, keep in mind, some items actually are not cheaper on Amazon, such as erasers and crayons. But there are still many items which you can save some money on by getting them online. Here they are:

Spiral-Bound Notebook

Walmart: $5.57
Target: $2.99
Amazon: $1.76 (for a 6-pack)


Or, you can get notebooks for just $1.25 each if you buy this nifty 4-pack.

A notebook is something all your kids will need at some point, which is why I recommend getting a 4-pack or 6-pack to save money in the long run.

1″ 3-ring binder

Walmart: $7.49
Target: $10.99
Amazon: $5.06

3″ Zipper Binder

Walmart: $14.42
Target: $16.99
Amazon: $13.89

 

Pencils

Walmart: $2.89 for 1 dozen ($0.24/pencil)
Target: $2.57 for 1 dozen ($0.21/pencil)
Amazon: $9.98 for 144 ($0.07 per pencil)

Or you can get a 96-pack for $7.99, which is about $0.08 per pencil:

Ball-Point Pens

Walmart: $5.23 for 36 pens ($0.14/pen)
Target: $4.34 for 12 pens ($0.36/pen)
Amazon: $3.79 for 36 pens ($0.11/pen)

Glue Sticks

Walmart: $1.97 for 4-pack ($0.49/gluestick)
Target: $0.99 for 2-pack ($0.49/gluestick)
Amazon: $8.39 for 30-pack ($0.28/gluestick)

This same 30-pack is available for almost $1 more at Target and Walmart.

Markers

Walmart: $10.76 for 12-pack
Target: $6.99 for 12-pack
Amazon: $5.40 for 50-pack!

Those are just some basics, but there are many other cheap school supply products on Amazon. You can shop them all by grade here.

You can also find other cheap back-to-school items on Amazon like Back to School Clothes and cute, affordable lunchboxes.  Here are some examples of some fun back-to-school stuff I found:

This Easy Investment Can Give You Returns Up to 200% Per Year

Does an investment that returns up to 200% per year seems too good to be true? Well, it is true, but it’s not what you expect. It’s not some mutual fund or high-risk scheme. It’s an investment in a couple upgrades in your home that can more than double your money in energy savings.

You can literally make low-cost improvements that will reduce your utilities by hundreds of dollars each year. I bet this is a better return on your money spent than any other investment you might have. Plus, you don’t have to pay taxes on your the profit since it’s in the form of cost savings.

Top 5 Money Saving Improvements

1. Improvement: Install Programmable Thermostat
This helps you by automatically changing the temperature during certain hours to be more efficient and save you money on your electricity.
Time Involved: 30 minutes
Cost Range: $30 to $60
Difficulty Level: Medium
Savings: Up to $180 per year Consumer Reports
Return on Investment: Up to 300% return the first year

2. Improvement: Insulate Your Water Heater
Time Involved: 1 Hour
Cost Range: $28 at Home Depot
Difficulty Level: Super Easy
Savings: saves $20 to $45 annually
Return on Investment: 67% to 225% the first year

3. Improvement: Replace all light bulbs with LED bulb.
Don’t switch to CFLs (compact fluorescent light bulbs) because they are less efficient and are hazardous to people if they break. So stick with LEDs. They are safer and they last for about 10 years.
Time Involved: How long does it take a person to change a light bulb?
Cost Range: You can usually get 1 box free (15 bulbs) from your electric company. For the rest of the bulbs you need, they only cost $2 per bulb at the Home Depot.
Difficulty Level: Super Easy
Savings: About $1.30 electricity savings per bulb per year. 25 bulbs in your house could save you $32.50 per year.
Return on Investment: If you get 15 free and purchase 10, ROA is 160% the first year.

4. Improvement: Insulate Your Attic. Upgrading your attic insulation is easy enough to do on your own for half the cost of a professional. You can get information at your local home store on how to do this, or go to YouTube for video instruction.
Time Involved: 1 day
Cost Range: About $750
Difficulty Level: Medium
Savings: Up to $600 per year
Return on Investment:  80% return in the first year. The remaining 20% during the 2nd year.

5. Improvement: Seal the Leaks Go around your house and check door frames, windows, and points of entry for pipes and cables. Then seal the holes with caulking and peel-and-paste insulating strips.
Time Involved: a few hours
Cost Range:  Between $100 to $150 for the average home depending on how many leaks you have.
Difficulty Level: Medium
Savings: Energy Star claims it will reduce energy cost by 12% to 20% per year or $240 to $480 per year.
Return on Investment: Up to 320% return the first year.

The years following all these fixes will continue to yield cost savings without any spending. You can’t get returns like this in the stock market!

All the above numbers are based on a scenario where you do all the home improvements yourself. It will usually cost at least double the amount if you hire someone else to do it. You might not know how to do all these improvements yourself, but there are free videos on YouTube that can teach you how.

How You Use Your Energy

The average energy consumer spends over $2000 per year on their electricity bill, using between 700 to 1000 kWh of energy per month. So cutting back costs are essential to managing your money properly. Knowing where you are spending the money can help you identify where to cut back. In a typical home, these are the things that use the energy you are paying for:

  • Heating and Cooling 58%
  • Water Heating 19%
  • Refrigeration 12%
  • Appliances and Lights 11%

This Magical New Budgeting App Will Change Your Life Forever!

 What if there was a budgeting app that forced you to follow your budget? Sticking to your budget is one of the most difficult parts of budgeting. That’s why some investors got together and created a special app that forces you to stick to your budget. How’s that possible? I’ll explain.

ProActiveBudget.com

The way it works is you set up a bank account with ProActive Budget and they issue you a debit card. ProActive Budget uses a real bank and is FDIC insured.

Then you use their app to set up categories for Budget Envelopes, like groceries, entertainment, etc. Once you set the envelopes up, you set a spending limit for each category. When you go shopping, you select an envelope to use. Once the money is gone from that envelope, the card won’t allow you to spend any more of your money. It’s a simple, yet powerful tool to limit your ability to overspend. It basically forces you to stick to your budget.

I was so excited to share this great idea with you that I reached out to ProActive Budget and asked for a discount for my readers. If you decide to sign up for this budgeting app, click here and use the code MOMMA$ and they will give you $5 off your membership.

A Total Solution

I’m recommending this app because it has so many great features. It really works as a full budgeting solution. It allows you to share your budget across devices with a spouse or partner. Every dollar has a job in the budgeting app and it’s safe and secure just like a regular bank account. The card works online or in any store and even in ATMs, but declines purchases that go beyond the limits you set for yourself.

Of course, the app has a monthly fee, but it’s worth it. It can really help people get their spending under control. It costs $5.75 a month for one user and an additional $2.42 per month for a 2nd user. But you can get $5 off with the code MOMMA$.

Testimonials

ProActive Budget has quite a few testimonials on their website showing how couples made amazing financial changes once they used the app. Here’s one user’s experience from the site:

Letisha: “We’d usually get down to $15 for a week before payday. After a month with ProActive we had $300. My husband and I both have our envelopes at any time.”

ProActive Budget is basically an electronic version of the Cash Envelope System. It works great if you don’t want to use the cash version with the paper envelopes. It definitely forces you to stay on track financially. If you decide to sign up for this budgeting app, click here and use the code MOMMA$ and they will give you $5 off your membership.

If you need help setting up a budget, click here. Learn about the Cash Envelope System here.

Ultimate Money Saving Guide for Eating Out

Ultimate Guide to Eating Out for Less

Do you ever feel a little guilty when you eat out because of the extra cost? Not anymore. I’m going to teach you how to make eating out work with your budget.

There are so many tricks out there to save money at restaurants that it has become more affordable than ever. But it’s hard to find all the tips, one at a time, by searching the Internet for advice. So I assembled all of the best advice from all across the web. Now it’s all in one place for you to choose the best strategy for your budget.

23 Ways to Save When Eating Out

  1. Get discounted gift certificates. Before heading to the restaurant, check the site called restaurants.com for half priced gift certificates for local restaurants.
  2. Buy discounted gift card. Many sites sell discounted gift cards to a variety of restaurants. Use the site Cardpool, or Raise. See this post for more info.
  3. Use a coupon. Go to Valpak.com or Coupons.com to find coupons for additional money off restaurants. Entertainment books usually have restaurant coupons.
  4. Get a rebate. Use Ebates, MrRebates, or Ibotta for cash rebates after eating out.
  5. Order water. Ordering water instead of other drinks can save a bundle of cash. Water is always free. If you eat out once per week, you could save $300 per year per person by ordering water instead.
  6. Split a meal. At most restaurants, it’s ok to order one meal and split it between two plates. This will cut your restaurant bill in half when there are two of you. Besides, the amount of food served per person is usually way too much for one person to eat anyway.
  7. Eat an appetizer or side. You can often fill up on the cheaper appetizer or side and skip the main meal. This works especially well if you are eating out for the social aspect, rather than filling up.
  8. Be selective on where you eat out. Casual dining, where you don’t have a server, often can be 1/3 more expensive plus you end up leaving a bigger tip. Or you can order your meal to go and avoid a tip altogether.
  9. Pick a better time to eat. If you go during lunch instead of dinner, you can save anywhere from $10 to $30 a person.
  10. Use your reward credit cards. Use your rewards credit card to pay for the meal, but only if you plan on paying it off right away. Some cards give you up to 3% back on restaurants. Just be sure to pay it before the next billing cycle so you don’t pay interest on it.
  11. Use a loyalty card. Many restaurants will give you free meals after so many visits. All you have to do is sign up for their loyalty card and have them scan it before you pay. Some will email you special offers.
  12. Use a restaurant club. There are several programs that give you rewards for eating at any restaurant on their list. You can register your credit card (or your cash back credit card) at iDine and get rewards if you write a review of the restaurant later. Others restaurant clubs include American Airlines AAdvantage Dining and Southwest Rapid Rewards Dining.
  13. Make an online reservation. If you reserve your table through Reservation Genie or Open Table, you can get rewards in the form of gift certificates.
  14. Find local deals. You can often get amazing offers at Groupon, Amazon Local, Scoutmob, or Living Social for local restaurants in your area.
  15. Go to a buffet. For a small price, you can eat all you want at a buffet. This might save you money depending on how much you normally eat.
  16. Order the daily special. Some restaurants offer better prices on their daily special and it is usually one of their better tasting meals.
  17. Order kid size. If you are not a big eater, try ordering off the kids’ menu for savings.
  18. Go on Monday or Tuesday. Many restaurants offer specials on Mondays and Tuesdays because these are typically their slowest days. Avoid holidays though. They often up their prices on holidays.
  19. Make use of kids eat for free offers. Hundreds of restaurants have days of the week when kids can eat free with a paying adult. Go here to look up specific restaurants.
  20. Get freebies on your birthday. Many places have special they will email out to you on your birthday, but some are just available when you request it. Here’s a current list of what’s out there.
  21. Find report card freebies. When your kids do well in school, it’s fun to take them out for a free treat. Try these favorites.
  22. Check the restaurant’s Facebook page. Many restaurants use social media to offer specials deals and coupons that you can’t get anywhere else.
  23. Use a status discount. Tons of restaurants offer senior discounts, AAA discounts, student discounts, teacher discounts, military discounts.

Strategy

The best way to save is to combine multiple strategies into one. I’ll show you with some recent examples when I went out to eat.

Example 1:  e want to go to a local restaurant. We went to restaurants.com and found a $25 gift certificate to a local restaurant for $10. They were running a special where you would also get 2 free movie tickets with the purchase. Then I went to a coupon site and found a promo code for 50% off of the purchase. So I bought the gift cert for $5. I bought it through my Ebates portal and got 10% back. I used my cash back rewards credit card and got 3% back. So the gift certificate for $25 only cost $4.35.

Then we went to the restaurant and the deal required that we had to spend $50 to use the gift certificate. This was no problem for 4 people. Our bill came to slightly over $61.20 after tax and tip. We used our $25 gift certificate to pay for part. Then we paid the remainder with our 3% back credit card, bringing the total down to $30.27. Total spent = $30.27 + $4.35= $34.62 for $61.20 value. Total savings = $26.58 or 43.4% off (plus 2 free movie tickets).

Example 2: We wanted to eat at Applebee’s. So first we checked Raise for a discount gift card. We found a $50 gift card to Applebee’s for $43.99 or 13.2% off. We used our Ebates account to click over and buy it and got a rebate of 1%.  Then, we used our cash back rewards credit card for 3% back. Then we went to Coupons.com and got a deal for 1 free appetizer and 2 entrees at Applebee’s for $20. There were 4 of us, so we used 2 of the deals. Then we got a free dessert for an anniversary coupon that Applebee’s emailed us for being on their list.

At the restaurant, our meal cost $40 plus tax and tip for 4 people including 4 meals, 2 appetizers, and a dessert. We paid for this with our $50 gift card. Total cost $42.23 for $50 value or 15.5% off.

Wasn’t that cheap? You can do it too! Add some fun by making it a challenge to see how much you can save!

Final Word

Now that you have all kinds of strategies available to make your restaurant experience cheaper, let me just throw in a little word to the wise. When I worked as an accountant, many of my clients that struggled the most with money were the ones that ate out the most.

Going out to restaurants is always going to be more expensive than making your own food at home. So if you are living paycheck to paycheck, you might want to avoid eating out at all until you are able to change your financial situation.

I am so excited to announce the opening of my new blog. It is called Momma Money Sense and will provide all kinds of financial advice. I have a Master’s in Professional Accounting (MPAcc) and attended law school in Seattle.  My work history includes many years as an accountant, a chief financial officer, and a tax preparer. I also worked as a college teacher in the business school at the University of Washington, Bothell Campus.

Julie For Real

For 12 years, I ran a successful business that brought in over $600,000 per year.

Now that I have sold the business for more than I put into it, I’m excited for this chance to share what I know with you. I want to teach you how to manage your money better so you can have financial freedom!

I am so pumped to offer you a chance to win a FREE Amazon Gift Card worth $125. My goal with this contest is to get 1,000 new subscribers by the end of June.
