Is December A Busy Month?

by Janell on December 8, 2012

I don’t know about you but December is such a busy month! We always have places to go, people to see, and parties to attend! If you haven’t checked out my crock pot series, 1 Hour + 1 Mess = 5 Crock Pot Meals, this is a great month to try them.

I have 3 sets of recipes (15 unique recipes) that really help me save time and money in the kitchen. I not a nutritionalist, but I think they are also pretty healthy! I am 1 recipe short of the 4th set. So make sure you subscribe to my email newsletter so you know when the next set of recipes are available.

Earn Cash Back When You Eat Out!

by Janell on December 7, 2012

I just found out a great way to earn some cash back when we eat out at restaurants. Plink is an easy way fo you to earn a little cash back when you eat out. You add the offers to your wallet and then when you eat out you get points. You can start to cash out when you have just 500 points. You don’t just earn points when you eat out. They are always sending me emails offing me extra points! I cashed out $5 and I think we only ate out at a restaurant 1 time!

How it works

  • Join Plink
  • Log – in with your bank information. They can only see your purchases that way they can credit you for your points. This is a very secure website. You can read more about the security on their website. Once I linked my bank account I was given 500 points – enough for a $5 gift card!
  • Add offers to your wallet. (see below for more information)

They have several offers that give you points:

  • Arby’s – spend $5 or more and get 70 points. Or spend $15 or more and get 150 points
  • Outback Steakhouse- spend $20 or more and get 200 points. Or spend $60 or more and get 600 points
  • Taco Bell – spend $5 or more and get 70 points. Or spend $15 or more and get 150 points
  • Dunkin Donuts – spend $5 or more and get 70 points. Or spend $15 or more and get 150 points
  • And more……

I just cashed out my first $5 Amazon gift card. But they also have other gift card options – Tango (Which offers a ton of gift cards!), Walmart, Kohls, B&N, Macy’s,, American Eagle, and more!


Smart Couponing Tips

by Janell on December 7, 2012

I have been couponing for many years. I love that I can stretch my dollar further and I usually have a mini stockpile in my house. I hope I can teach you a little bit about Smart Couponing. Buy the stuff you need – or the stuff you can get for free and donate your extras! Saving money does not have to be stressful.

You should also expect to save about 50% – 70% off your grocery bill. You will rarely ever save 99% like they show on Extreme Couponing!

Here’s some articles I wrote about saving time and money!

Please feel free to ask me any questions!
