5 ways to earn CASH at the grocery!

With the New Year comes resolutions to save money and none of us ever assumes this will come out of our grocery budget! Good news for us all is that we can actually not only SAVE money but we can also MAKE money at the Grocery Store!

As we all know, we can print online coupons...but all of the grocery stores seem to have tightened up their coupon restrictions and now they only double up to $1.00, will only take 6 per manufacturer, and even have a quantity cap on the item - NOT what you see on extreme couponing, right!?

So, I had to do a little digging but found a few ways to get some extra bang for my buck. Now not only can I use the coupons BUT I also get cash deposited into an account just by using some of the apps that I downloaded to my smartphone. Each week, I am able to rack up extra money and it gets deposited directly into my paypal account (or bank account).

DIY Balsamic Glaze Recipe!

I will be the first person to admit that my love for balsamic glaze goes way beyond love.. I am an addict. There is almost nothing in this world that isn't made better by this dark & sweet glaze: pizza; tomatoes; salads; fruits...yep, the list goes on and on. I always ask for it in restaurants when available but have never purchased it for my home due to one main thing...COST.

Save money AND make ORGANIC sodas with the Soda Stream!

I can not tell you how honestly thrilled my son was to open up a Soda Stream soda maker for Christmas. Maybe it wasn't a traditional gift for an 11 year old boy BUT for my son, it was a step towards incorporating sodas into his everyday life - and he was IN!

Red Palm Oil - To Try...or not to try...That is the Question

So...my husband came home from one of our favorite places the other day with something new in his bag...Red Palm Oil. He had been hearing that he should try it, knew NOTHING else about it, but saw that there were tons of people around the shelves AND the sign said that it was Organic - so he was in.

BUT WAS I!? Time to do the research.... Read more HERE

Hamilton Beach Sandwich Maker Giveaway! Sponsored by Mommy Only Has Two Hands!

 photo hamiltonbeachsandwichmakergiveaway_zpsd05c56a8.jpg About six months ago I saw the Hamilton Beach Sandwich Maker in a commercial and new I needed to get myself one.  I love those Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches and with my hypoglycemia I need to make sure my mornings are protein packed. So instead of spending $5 to six bucks in the drive through or on those sandwiches at the store, you can buy all the ingredients, eggs, cheese, sausage patties, or my personal favorite "Canadian Bacon" that I buy at Sam's club and English muffins and save yourself money in the long run if you are constantly wanting a breakfast sandwich when you walk out the door.  The Hamilton Breakfast Sandwich Maker is a great way to save money if you constantly find yourself in the drive through or buying the read made ones.  Each sandwich can be made in 5 minutes or less and you can decide how you want to make your sandwich. After a friend of mine visited in July, she bought herself a sandwich maker just like mine.  Here's a quick video of just how easy it is to use:     

And because I love this Kitchen appliance so much and its made my mornings easier, I would love to gift this one to a lovely reader. I've teamed up with Heather from familyFitFrugal.com and Stephanie from WifeMommyMe.com to help promote this giveaway!  Details: All entrants must be 18 years of age or older living in the continental United States only.
