Do you know about Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector?

One of my friends downloaded it on her phone and told a group of us about how addicting this game truly is.  I’m always a sucker for a new app/game, so I downloaded.

Now you can call me the crazy cat app lady.

That’s my little yard.

The premise of the game is simple.  Create a yard interesting enough for cats to hang out in.  These cats visit your yard and leave you fish.  They can either give silver or gold fish.  Those fish are currency.  Those fish are what you use to purchase new toys and furniture to entice more cats to visit.  And it just cycles on and on from there.

I recently earned enough gold fish to purchase the yard expansion which allowed me to get the inside of the house.

It truly was a happy day.

It’s also a very low maintenance game.  The cats only come when you leave the app.  You have to make sure that there is enough food for the cats to visit.  And when you pop back into the app, there could be cats there just hanging out.  You can also have rewards waiting for you, which are their gifts of fish.

Did I mention that these cats are all so super cute?!

It’s also a great way for M to play with cats and not have an allergic reaction.

WIN WIN!

Tell me what kind of game apps do you play with?  If it’s interesting enough, I’ll try it out and review it here too!

I’ve been trying to find ways to save a dollar here, and a dollar there..

I still use Mypoints.com to earn points for gift cards, preferably to Target.. if you want a referral to Mypoints.. shoot me a comment with an email address..

I also have a Target credit card that saves me 5% off of every purchase… did you know that includes Starbucks coffee and the food from the food court?!  I recently found that out.. and I think it’s awesome!

I recently discovered ibotta.  It’s a phone app that is almost like mobile coupons.  Every so often, offers pop up on certain products.  All you have to do is perform very simple tasks about the product.  It could be a simple one-question survey, or you have to watch a quick 15-second video, or you have to just read a fun fact.  Each task has a certain cent value.  Depending on the tasks, you can save up to a $1.00 off each product.

Then, you go to the store and buy the product.  They have a huge list qualifying stores, so you pretty much can’t go wrong..

It’s a little bit of work once you purchase the product, but I think it’s worth it.

Once the product is purchased, you use the app to take a picture of the receipt and scan the barcode found on the product itself.  It takes a few minutes for the transactions to approve and poof!  I get some money back!

You have to accumulate a minimum of $5 before you can have the money withdrawn into your personal Paypal account. 

Super simple!

If any of my Facebook friends read this, let me know and I’ll send you a referral link via Facebook.  If you refer a friend, you get $1 into your account.  Every friend helps! 

If anyone else has some great money-saving apps or methods, please share!  I love finding fun ways to save money!  Every little bit always helps.
