Apps I use to make money!

Did you know that fights about money are the second leading cause for divorce? That is such a crazy thing to me that a material good that we created is causing us to fight and divorce.
I am lucky enough to be a stay at home mom. I've constantly searched out ways to make money while staying home, so my husband doesn't have all that weight on his shoulders. Of course, if you have looked for work at home jobs that allow you to still watch your kids,  you will realize there are very few jobs like that. So I've resorted to any other way I can save our family some money. 

In the 4 years that I've been a stay at home mom, I've tried out many apps that pay you money,  or give you rewards for using apps. I've found a few that I can trust so far. Its been really nice to have a few different apps I use to put a good amount of money toward Christmas or birthday gifts, or even groceries. 

Here I have a list of a few apps I have consistently used, and that have some great rewards. 

This is a fun app to have. It works with Android and iOS phones. It's a game where you earn rolls by watching videos and taking surveys, you use the rolls to earn tickets. The tickets you accumulate can be used to get Amazon products. 
The downside is it doesn't always have everything Amazon has.  But gift cards are redeemable with your tickets so you can get amazon gift cards to buy whatever they may not have with the app. 
If you decide to try this app out,  use my referral code and you will get 30 rolls to start! 
Referral code: 513485

I really love this grocery app. You can make good money from this one if you often buy name brand products from the grocery store.
They have lots of grocery stores they use like Smiths, Walmart, Sprouts, Sam's club etc.
You make your grocery list,  and before going shopping, look at the Ibotta app and it will tell you what products you can earn money back after buying. After your grocery shop, it has you take a picture with your phone, of receipt and the product you bought. Once it verified that you bought that product, you get some money back. Once it adds up,  you can get gift cards and put them on your next shopping trip. They also have Amazon and some clothes shopping places that you can get money back. I highly suggest you check it out! 
Use my referral code if you decide to sign up!

This one I'm a little newer to but I just used some points for a $5 gift card. 
This app gives you 10 points a day just for unlocking your phone. You can also watch videos to earn more points. 
It took me about a week to get used to it but once you get used to it, you won't even notice it anymore. It runs ads on your lock screen as soon as you push a button to turn the screen on. You unlock your phone and use it as normal. You don't have to even really look at the ads at all. 
If you choose to download the S'more app,  use my referral code and you will get 25 points to start!
Referral code: SHNGQU

These are the only ones right now that I'm using and it's paid for a good Christmas for my hubby and kids last year,  and I'm planning on using my earnings for Christmas again this year!
If you sign up for these now, you will definitely have some extra money for your Christmas as well!

Don't let money become a fight in your home, always budget and live below your means so you can enjoy the other things that life has to offer you. 

If you are using any other money making apps,  let us know what they are and drop your referral code so we can sign up too!


  1. I never shop without using my Ibotta app! I also use Ebates for my online shopping. Between the two of them, I earn back quite a bit of money throughout the year!

    1. I haven't gotten into Ebates but I hear great things

  2. Thanks for sharing! I love Ibotta. I also use Ebates and Dosh. Sounds like you might also like Inbox Dollars and Swagbucks.

  3. I use Ibotta and absolutely love it! But i'll have to check out the Smore app! That looks like something I could use!

    1. It's a good app. If you end up using it, use mmy code!

  4. Everything in the post is new to me. I would definitely like to try one.

How To Do Vegas Right For Your 21st Birthday

The 21st birthday is a big one to celebrate.  You're finally out of your teens,  you can legally drink,  and you're considered an adult (more so than an 18-year-old).  
If you're going to celebrate this great phase in life,  you need to do it up right!  Vegas is the place to celebrate.  

Being a responsible adult,  you need to find some good friends that can join you on your excursion to Las Vegas.  Once you have found the right people to join you,  you must start planning. 
Hotel: There are many hotel choices when staying in Vegas.  But you MUST stay on the strip if you plan on drinking.  It makes transportation and navigating so much easier. 

Trust me,  you don't want to have to pay a taxi ride from the outskirts,  to the strip, and back.  Save that money for something better! I highly suggest staying at Mandalay Bay , or Ceasars Palace. But, if you have specific bars and places you want to go,  find out what hotel is closest to the area you will mostly be in.  It ma…

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want. 

1. Have a great emotional intelligence. 
Emotional Intelligence is something that is important to work on regardless of where you are in your life. To have or improve on emotional intelligence, you need to work on understanding both your emotions and other people's emotions.
 When your able to identify how your feeling, you are able to control them better. It will help you to be able to step back and look at…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!
