Simple Valentine Budget Ideas For the Family!!! Studio 40 Live Segment Details!


Hello Studio 40 Live Viewers!!!! Here is all the info on everything I shared on today’s segment!! I am so excited for Valentine’s Day and I have come up with some very simple budget-friendly ideas for you!

Here is what I bought at Smart & Final
Doritos 50 ct. $13.99  ($.28 each)

First Street Microwave Popcorn 24ct. $6.99 ($.29 each)

 

 

 

I used the Doritos bags- but any bags of chips will work for this. 

I printed these simple printables 
that say  You are all that and a bag of chips! 
I just taped them on – can easily be done by kids too!

Then I printed these printables for the microwave popcorn that say
You Make My Heart Pop!

 

 

 

This is a very simple snack for watching a family movie or a Valentine Party snack for the kids!
1 Box/Bag Teddy Grahams
1 Bag of Mini Marshmallows
1 Bag of Valentine Colored M&Ms

 

 

 

This is just so cute and a big hit in my house.

I always use the First Street Double Strength Red Food Coloring.
Just make one big bowl of mix and cook a few plain waffles (or pancakes) then add a little food coloring to make the batter pink and make some more-then add enough to make the batter red and then make the rest. It looks so pretty on a tray or individual plate. 

I got the Dash Mini Heart Waffle Maker at Target for $9.99

This is just a MUST for ANY holiday or a weekend or weekday quick dessert

Cake Mix Cookies

1 Cake Mix ( I used Strawberry)
2 Eggs
1/2 Cup Oil

Mix and drop as cookies on a baking sheet. 
Add chocolate or white chips if desired
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. They will not seem like they are done, but they are. Let cool and they will be the most moist cookies ever!!

They also had a great selection of prizes like bubbles, pencils, and slime if you would like to (or have to) opt for a non-food gift to exchange in your childs’ class.

Save Money and Get Cash Back Using ONLY YOUR PHONE! My Apps I use ALL the Time to Save Thousands Each Year!

$$ Saving and Earning Apps

There are other ways and additional ways to save money while you shop!

Money saving and Cash Back Apps were my favorite ways in 2018!

Have you downloaded the Ibotta App yet?

 

 

I have earned almost $1,000 Cash Back with Ibotta! (Plus my husband has the app too so we can both earn the deals!)

 

 

If you have not downloaded or used Ibotta yet, download it- and enter THIS referral code MPJXKQ

You will get a Cash Bonus offer just for signing up! Plus- we will be in the same team-there are TEAMWORK bonuses when your team reaches a certain amount of Cash Back offers redeemed, and since there are lots of people on my team, it is pretty easy to get a few levels in every month of Bonus MONEY!!!

If you register your card from Raley’s, Sprouts, and Rite Aid-your offers will be redeemed automatically without submitting a receipt!

Here is how it works-
1. Get the Ibotta App
2. Choose the store you are shopping at
3. Add the offers to your account of what you will be buying
4. After shopping redeem your offers by taking a picture of your receipt and submitting it.
5. Receive your CASH BACK!

At  first it may seem time consuming setting it up-I get that. But really once or twice a week I skim through the offers at the stores I go to and add them to my account-then when I go to the store I redeem my receipts. It gets faster each time. Plus-looking at how I got $944 back so far-I do not feel bad about the time I spent looking through the offers!

This is SERIOUSLY the EASIEST app to earn gift cards with that I have ever used (And I have used SOOOO MANY!)

To sign up—

 

 

Download the App
Use THIS CODE-RPEKY -enter it as your referral code-to get $5 FREE for doing nothing!

Then-register your credit cards or bank cards-sound weird I know-But every time I get gas at Safeway, or shop at Target or any of the stores that I added to my account- I get points AUTOMATICALLY for shopping there!

I don’t have to take any pictures, cut any coupons or do ANYTHING and I was able to earn $15 in gift cards IN MY FIRST MONTH (plus my $5 initial gift!)

There are MORE ways to earn extra points faster-choosing more offers, shopping through the app etc-but I have not taken the time really to do that-I pretty much just let it alone and let the points accumulate! It has been the easiest app so far. It isn’t a HUGE moneymaker, but 1-3 free Starbucks cards a month works for me!

Here is another one of my FAVORITE APPS-SHOPKICK!!

EVERYONE in my family has a Shopkick App!

All you have to do is open your Shopkick app up at the stores that offer “kicks” to walk in.
When your Kicks add up for enough to earn a gift card-you can redeem your kicks!

To get MORE kicks-
Scan items in the store (different for each store)
Link your debit/credit card and receive kicks for shopping at certain stores- I get kicks for shopping at TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Marshall’s automatically added to my account!

 

I can usually get $5-$10 in gift cards each month with this app pretty easily. If my kids are with me it gives them something to do while they are in the stores. They go around Target, Walmart-or grocery stores and scan the items that are offered. Keeps them occupied-and they get their own Starbucks cards!

I usually save mine up until I can get a larger amount-or I need a gift.

I did save mine up for awhile because I knew we were going to Seattle-and I KNEW there would be Starbucks there!

 

 Here is my husband enjoying his coffee at the Starbucks Reserve! 

He saved up like $10 from Shopkick, and I had $20 so we drank free coffee that weekend because of our Shopkick App!

Join SHOPKICK with this link – 
USE CODE GIFT878432 and we both get points towards FREE gift cards!

FETCH REWARDS

I just LOVE Fetch Rewards! It is one of the newer ones, but I have already made a few gift cards from it!

When you go shopping-ANY GROCERY STORE- just take a picture of your receipt. It will give you points when you buy brands that are listed in the app! No scanning of items or anything. If your receipt does not have any participating items-you still get 25 points!

All you need to do is Download the FETCH app! Then if you enter this promo code- AF4FP you will get $2 instantly!!

CHECKOUT 51

Checkout 51 is pretty simple too! Each Thursday new offers are added (some just reset). You can usually redeem each offer multiple times. This is my favorite app to use at the 99 Cent Only store or Grocery Outlet types of shoppings. They will often have $1 Cash Back on Nabisco Cookies or Crackers. They usually have them for $1, or $1 Back for 2 at these stores-so after the $$ Back, they come to $.50 each!

To get BONUS MONEY for signing up – Go To https://checkout51app.link/6aFDoCCTVQ

SavingStar

 

SavingStar App takes a bit longer for your savings to add up, but what I like about it is that you can link your store cards( just put your phone number!) to it. I shop a lot at Safeway, so when I buy an offer that is saved, the savings is added to my account automatically-no scanning receipts or anything else. They don’t have as many offers as other apps-but after awhile they accumulate without any effort-so why not? To get started-GO HERE

 

 

 

 Pei is another easy app to use. You sign up ONCE enter your info and continue to earn points for your purchases at participating stores. Then you earn points. You can redeem them for Cash, Gift  Cards and even Bitcoin.

  1. Download the Pei App
  2. Use the Referral Code “gvudfd”
  3. Earn the $2.50 Welcome Bonus and keep earning!

Receipt Scanning Apps are one of the easiest apps to use. I have all of them and once or twice a week I just go through and snap a picture of each receipt on each app!

Coinout-Snap a picture of your receipt and money is added to your account! That is it!

Receipt Pal– Just snap a picture of your receipt! That is it!

Receipt Hog– Just snap a picture of your receipt. Earn coins and redeem for cash or gift cards

Shopkick App =FREE Gift Cards!!!

Do you have the Shopkick App???

I opened my app for check-ins and scans when I went to the stores throughout the year and earned $240 in gift cards without really using any effort! 

Many stores have 200 kicks for walking in, and many have over 1000 for scanning items. My kids love to scan in Walmart and Best Buy and they earn $5 about any time they come with me- then they buy their own snacks! 

One of my sons saved theirs up and used it for Christmas presents for his siblings!!

5 Tips For Saving Money on Black Friday!!

I have 5 tips to share with you for Black Friday Shopping that will save you MONEY!

You may not like all of them-especially #1, but they work!!

Read them before you decide on your Black Friday strategy this year!

 

#1 DO NOT GO!
What- don’t shop on the day with the lowest prices of the year?? YES. Why? Because everything is on sale you will be tempted to buy MORE than you planned. 2 years ago I bought a TV, new pajamas, slippers, and more- and NONE of those items were on anyone’s Christmas list. So whatever I spent- did not even count as Christmas gifts and I still had to shop. 


#2 Plan Your Shopping BEFORE You Look at the Ads. Make a List!

If you will make a list of what gifts you want to give, or find out what your kids want- then when you look at the ads you will be able to see which store has what you are looking for at the best price. If you look at the ads without a list or a plan then you will see all kinds of these you will want to buy that you were not planning on, and that maybe won’t be on anyone’s list and can actually cause you to have to spend more. 

#3 Shop Online if Possible
If the deals you are looking for are available online-which many of them are- you will spend less on impulse buys and hopefully it will be easier to just get the item(s) you were planning on. See tip #5.

#4 Split Up With Friends or Family
Instead of running to all different stores, see if you can split up with some friends or family members and each pick a store. Your friend’s or family  members aren’t going to buy extra items with your money and  you will help each other stay accountable to your plan!

#5 Cyber Monday
The Monday after Thanksgiving is called Cyber Monday- that is like the Black Friday of the internet. Almost every store will be offering FREE Shipping and a % off your purchase. I bought a PS4 and some games on a Cyber Monday and checked off a kid without leaving home!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving and Day After without running around. You will spend money on coffee, going out to eat, and more because you are out. The deals will keep coming all the way until Christmas- and AFTER!

Bonus Tip-  Budget some extra money for AFTER Christmas to buy all the same things on Clearance that you would have bought before!
