I’m digging these kimonos from Cents of Style. They are the perfect piece for any weather and a MUST HAVE for your summer AND fall wardrobe. There are 25 different styles and one size fits most.

They are totally modern and are the perfect addition to level up your shorts, pencil skirts, or even your best skinny jeans. The flowy silhouette of these kimonos make for a flattering, comfortable fit that you will love adding to a variety of outfits! For date night layer it over a little black dress and some strappy heels, or for a more casual laid back look pair it with a simple white tee, your favorite shorts, and sandals.

kimonoYou can wear these over your swimsuits for the perfect coverup too! The possibilities are ENDLESS! Use code KIMONO20 and get 2 for $20 and you will also score FREE SHIPPING. This deal is only good through 8/9/19!

Talk Back: I love the flamingo kimono (above) and the cactus one (below). Which is your favorite?

My Monthly Savings to do list, updated for 2019!

file000901554050I wrote about this topic 4 years ago, and my… how the savings game has changed. In addition to sharing how I save and earn money each month, I’ve included some other tips at the bottom of the post.

I still do a lot of the same things:

Weekly: Print coupons & Check Savings Apps. I print coupons from Coupons.comSmartSourceRedPlum, and check apps and add items that appeal before I hit the grocery store each week. Here is a list of the apps I use.

 

1st and 15th: Mail out SBKC junk mail envelopes. I process our mail when it all comes in and I put the junk mail in the envelopes as it comes in.

Daily: I spend a little time each day (usually while I drink my coffee in the morning working my points programs. This includes  Mypoints (I save all of my Mypoints emails and do them all at once, one time a day). I also check my Field Agent App to see if there are any quick tasks I can do to earn some extra money that day.

As I am notified via emailPaid View Point (some of the surveys are time sensitive- those usually pay extra!), PineCone Research (surveys must be completed 3-6 days upon receiving the email).

Last day of the month: Clean out coupon wallet and removed expiring/expired coupons.

As needed/codes become available: I use the Swagbucks tool bar to do most of my internet searches, so I earn Swagbucks points intermittently with that too. I also order free samples when I see them available online. I’ll be posting about what I do with all the samples coming up.

I try to do as much shopping online with discounts as I can.  That means I check with  Mypoints and Topcashback  to see who is giving the better points/cash back, and I shop online a lot (especially in the summer when I’ve got both kids at home- it’s easier on the budget).

 

Other ways you can save money: 

 

How do you keep track of all of your programs to save money?
