Fetch Rewards: 50 pts on all restaurant receipts!

WOO HOO! This offer came at the right time. Our fridge died on Monday, so we’re eating a lot of shelf-stable foods and stuff that can be safely stored in a cooler.

That also means we are picking up some stuff to go a little more than I like, but Fetch Rewards has my back!

Dosh and Grocery Outlet- Time to Save!

Y’all know how much I LOVE Grocery Outlet. Tons of great groceries and deals in the store, and they get so many incredible one-time deals. I love shopping at Grocery Outlet because I’ve tried so many new products shopping there.

Right now, Grocery Outlet is sweetening the deal of shopping there. They’ve teamed up with Dosh. Earn $2 in-store cashback on purchases $15 and up when you pay with your Dosh linked card (and remember to run your card as credit).

I shop there once a week and I’ve been earning $2 a pop for the past month or so.

And the nice way to double dip with this deal is to upload your receipt to Fetch Rewards, and a few other apps to earn additional cashback. My complete list of Smartphone savings apps can be found here.

New To Dosh? You can learn all about it here. You can earn cashback shopping in-store or online. I primarily earn cashback on Dosh these days from Office Depot and Round Table Pizza, in addition to Grocery Outlet. We used our Dosh linked card to buy Big Kid a new bed last year and scored 2% cashback, in addition to other sales/deals. Dosh is a great app to double-dip!

(The Dosh Link is my personal link, if you sign up and complete an offer, I may earn a small commission. This money helps me run the site and offer contests and giveaways. You can see my Disclosure  info here.)

MyPoints: Turn receipts into cash with Magic Receipts

unnamed.gif

I’ve been a member of MyPoints for 10 years! There are all sorts of ways to earn money including these “Magic Receipt” offers!

These deals are only good at select stores, so check on each offer before adding it to ensure that you can redeem it at a store near you.  Here is an example of one of the offers:

Here is how MyPoints Magic Receipts works:

In-Store Receipts

  1. Find the deals you like, click “Add To List“, and then purchase those specific items at participating stores.

  2. After purchase, click submit the receipt from “My List” and follow the instructions.

  3. Be sure to read the fine print, paying special attention to product restrictions and expiration dates.

Each offer has its own terms, including at which stores the offer is valid. While this won’t replace my use of any of my other apps, it is a nice addition.

August 2021: New Healthy Freebies From Social Nature!

 If you are into Organic/Natural/Healthy products, then Social Nature is up your alley. Sign up and apply to sample products that you are interested in. I get probably 1-2 products to sample each month. And most of the time it’s full-size products, not just a tiny sample.

Social Nature has rounded up products that are available to try at a local grocery store or mass merchandiser near you.  Apply to Try the products that interest you to see if you’re a match here.

And one of the things I love about Social Nature is that they don’t leave our friends with food allergies out.

There are sampling offers for Gluten-free, nut-free, meat-free foods frequently.

Canadian Friends- You are in luck, there are sampling opportunities for you too! So if you love trying new products, check out Social Nature!

 

Sprouts Farmers Market Monthly Freebies!

Sprouts is hooking us up and helping us stay healthy! Every month on the Sprouts app in the Digital Coupon section, there are between 4-6 free items (they are marked “SAMPLING PROGRAM”).

Quantities are limited on the app, so if you are interested in any of these, I recommend that you add these coupons (by opening the Sprouts app, click on digital coupons, and click on each coupon in the lower corner where the little green circle is) to you app ASAP.

This month the following items are available:

  • Hungry Buddha Triple Chocolate or Lemon Blueberry Bar.
  • Root’d Sparkling MULTI Drink Mix Packet
  • Siete Foods Serrano Sea Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips
  • Kitu Plant-based Super Coffee
  • Lightlike “chicken” Fillets or Tenders
  • Jojo’s Goes Hawaiian Bites

Not all Sprouts locations will stock all of these items. I recommend going to a larger Sprouts location to redeem these offers.

7/19/2021 Weekly Meal Plan

0a5e9dab796cea8a07eabe4eb4795b9e.jpgI’m HOME! I had an amazing weekend away, and while I got home yesterday afternoon, I played with kids and took them swimming, then it was bedtime. No time to blog.

The kids have been digging the free school lunches- It’s a great way to encourage them to try new foods. That’s great because the price of groceries has gone up exponentially over the past few months. We’ve been eating less meat to save money, and I’m leaning more on stores that have good deals like Grocery Outlet, and using my cashback apps like Fetch Rewards. I’ve been cashing out Fetch rewards for Target Gift Cards. I’ve been combining the Target Gift Cards with grocery sales and deals in the Target app, and picking up via curbside pick up. It’s a great option if you’ve got kids and you’ve got a busy summer.

I need to go get milk this morning, but other than that, we are pretty well stocked on groceries for this week.

And I’ve been getting a lot of really great freebies from Social Nature lately too. It’s fun to try new foods.

I’m skipping the CSA box. We still have a bunch of fruit and veg from last week that didn’t get eaten. I’m going to be doing some cooking this morning- roasting veggies, cutting up ripe melons, and making some red sauce in the crockpot.

Veggies and fruit are delivered most Monday mornings by Yasukochi Family Farms CSA. For $25, it’s a great deal. I don’t have to pick anything, go to the store, or carry it upstairs. I can’t go to the store and get the same amount we get weekly for $25. Seriously. It’s a deal. I spend about an hour on Monday afternoon cleaning and prepping veggies for the rest of the week.

For those of you that are new to meal planning, I’ve got an easy 101 style post here with super easy tips and steps. After you get that down, here is info about batch or freezer cooking.

I’ve gotten a pretty good inventory of the pantry, freezer, and fridge done (I try to update it after every shopping trip), so I’m able to plan meals and use up what we’ve got with little waste. If you are looking for a kitchen inventory printable, I have made my own and you can find them for sale here on my Etsy Store.

I only post our dinner plans for the week, because our other meals are usually the same each day.

Breakfast: Coffee with 1/2 and 1/2  for me, and pancakes or something along those lines for the kids.  The kids are nuts about pancakes. The Big Kid has been on a protein shake kick in the AM.

Lunch: We pick up free school lunches during the summer for the kids, I also have a plastic tote in the cupboard full of self-serve snacks. I buy treats and snacks in bulk and fill up snack-sized zip-top bags.

Dinner: Usually, I do a crockpot meal on Mondays, but now that we are home all the time, we’ve been having an odd combination of fully home-cooked, scratch meals, and frozen entrees and veggies. I have been posting our meal plans on Instagram too- As well as pics of stuff we are doing to keep busy.

  • Sunday: Leftovers
  • Monday: Nugget night: Nuggets, crackers, cheese, fruit
  • Tuesday:  Breakfast for dinner (pancakes, fruit salad, bacon)
  • Wednesday: Frozen Entrees, roasted veggies
  • Thursday:   Beans, Rice, and Quesadillas (and leftover roasted veggies)
  • Friday:  Takeout Night
  • Saturday: Leftovers

Please stay safe you guys!
