6 Ways to Save on Wedding Planning

Getting married is absolutely one of the happiest times and events of your entire life. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most expensive. Unless your plan is to go the way of a simple courthouse wedding, you’ll find yourself with expenses that you didn’t even know were customary when it comes to weddings. There are so many things that go into a wedding that you don’t realize until you find yourself in the position of planning your wedding. A wedding dress, dresses for the bridal party, a tux, flowers, venue, catering, and drinks are just the beginning.

It's been a very rainy week here in the Chicago area, and it got me thinking...rainy days always get me down.  I'm a girl from sunny Southern California...we don't get much water falling from the sky, and I really don't mind.  (Bedsides the drought part, we really need to figure that out.)  
Anyway, I've been spending time in Chicago recently and it's been super rainy.  "Where's the sunshine?!" But I always have to remind myself, "we're not in Kansas (CA) anymore!"

So, what do you do when a rainy day is getting you down?

5 Ways to get Free Redbox rentals, and never pay for one again!

5 Ways to get Free Redbox rentals, and never pay for one again!

Remember Blockbuster?  Hollywood Video? Movie Gallery?
Friday nights were family movie nights at our house, so we would run to the rental store, sort through multiple options of VHS tapes to find the one we wanted and then we paid $4.99 for a 3-night rental on a New Release Movie. Obviously those days are long gone and now we have awesome subscription services like Netflix, Amazon Video (Prime and Firestick), Hulu, etc.  But if you want new release physical DVD's or Blue-Ray Discs, you head to REDBOX! 

And for a brand new DVD release, you're now only paying $1.50 a night!  Can't get much cheaper than that!  

Oh wait...Yes you can!!

How to Really Make Money with Online Surveys

How to Really Make Money with Online Surveys

We love online survey sites! It's an easy way to make a little extra mulch while watching TV or taking a long car ride (as a passenger of course!). 

But our biggest pet peeve is being on a survey site, spending 5-10 minutes or even more on a survey, just to be told you're not a good fit! And after all that, not even be compensated for your time! 

We've tested out numerous survey sites and have narrowed them down to our favorites.  We've already told you about QuickThoughts, which is top 3 of our list, and heres another super strong competitor.

Get Money Back AFTER Grocery Shopping!

Get Money Back AFTER Grocery Shopping!

This one is for you Savvy Savers AND Money Makers, because you're kind of doing both!!

Us girls are not typically coupon-ers when it comes to grocery shopping. In todays techy world, it is both easier and harder to coupon (for groceries).  First off, there's the coupon hunt...having to search for coupons of items that you want to purchase.  In our experience, coupons don't really come in the mail like they use to.  Newspapers, sometimes...but it seems to take a lot of work to hunt for coupons these days and we definitely don't want to have to print them out! And on top of it, I never know exactly what I want to buy until I get to the store anyway.  I start with a list, sure, but I like to decide others when I just happen to see it. 

So, what's a coupon-crazed girl to do without physical coupons?! 

Enter IBOTTA!!
