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You have to accumulate a minimum of $5 before you can have the money withdrawn into your personal Paypal account.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

My child is definitely a “techie.”  She loves playing with the iPads, iPhones, remote controls and other electronic devices.  If it has a button, you’ll be sure she’s pressing it!

I guess it’s just the sign of the times.. and I know so many of my friends that have children that are exactly like mine..

It’s just the way it is.. and I’m sure back when we were all young, our parents thought of us the same way..

Little M knows how to unlock my phone and iPad. 

On the iPad, she knows how to unlock and pick what app she wants to use.  She sits quietly and watches her Watch Disney Jr app or plays with the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally app..

It’s amazing how kids can adapt to all sorts of gadgets and gizmos.  They watch it enough from us using our “toys” that they seem to catch on so quickly!

My child is definitely not the only one iPad/iPhone savvy. 

It’s just so funny to watch this little 14 month old tapping away on the iPad. 

Of course I always put limitations on how long she can play with these “toys.”  So far the excuse, “The iPad is sleeping” is sufficient enough to get her away from it.. and I always make sure she’s playing more with her actual toys than her playing with “my” toys.. hahaha!

Kids these days…
