  1. Thank you so much for sharing the Gazelle site, Caitlin! Awesome to know that a used IPad is an option when the time comes!

  2. Thanks so much for sharing these sites. Some I knew about and some I did not. Always looking for ways to save money!

  3. There is another app similar to Digit that you mentioned called Acorns. It invests small change amounts from each of your purchases, so you are spending whole dollar amounts. I also want to mention to anyone looking to make some extra EASY money that Amazon has a survey/task website called MTurk where you can have the money you earn turned into cold hard cash in your bank or use it directly on Amazon.com. I started using it this year only occasionally and have $70, it really pays out, unlike some other survey sites I had tried before.

    1. Acorns sounds awesome!! I think I will combine the two. Why not, y’know? I won’t miss that change… but it can CREATE change 😀

    2. I tried to use Mturk but they denied me. They said they couldn’t tell me why

  4. Any ideas on how to get internet service cheaper? Since I don’t bundle with cable or a phone it is now $73/month which is outrageous.

    1. Dang! Is there more than one provider in your area? We have two major ones and bouncing between the two with threats to leave from one to the other usually gets you a better deal 😀

    2. If you call them, you may be able to negotiate a lower rate. You can probably find scripts online pretty quickly. It’s worth a shot! My MIL just did this with her bundle service about a week ago, but I’ve never done it myself.

  5. Great information, Caitlin! Indeed, if I save a dollar, it’s just as if I had earned one.

    Two thoughts I’d like to share:

    1. Saving on cable: We left *Direct TV (and a $90.00/month bill) almost four years ago and haven’t looked back. We have absolutely no regrets. I purchased a digital antenna for $89.00 (one time), a Roku streaming device (one time), and subscriptions to Netflix and Hulu Plus. Net monthly savings is about $72.00/month x 4years = (almost) $3456.00 saved over four years. Sweet!

    2. I started doing surveys online a couple of years ago and then just quit. I was spending too much time for very little return. However, I recently found two that are different. One is called, “e-Rewards” and the other is “American Consumer Opinion.” Both seem to be well worth the time spent.

    *One interesting note about our Direct TV experience: We thought we were getting true HD on many of our channels for all the years that it’s been available on Direct TV. No, we were not! However, we now get some of the same channels through the antenna, but they ARE in true HD; what a difference! Apparently, since we opted OUT of their more expensive offerings, Direct TV had been “dialing back” the quality of our signal. Who knew?!

    1. Whew! Thanks for the heads up on DirectTV. I have a Roku too and LOVE it! I rip all my workout DVDs to mp4 and play them thru Roku. Sure beats popping in DVDs all the time!

  6. My credit union has a savings account called Easy Saver. Each time you use your debit card it automatically rounds your purchase amount up to the next dollar and deposits it directly into your Easy Saver account. Since May of this year I have about $90 in my account. If I use my card to get gas, I will pump until I go over by 1 cent, and then I have 99 cents deposited in the account.

    If you live in the Dayton, Ohio area, you might consider opening a checking account at Wright-Patt Credit Union. I think they have branches in Columbus and Cincinnati as well. As a member of Wright-Patt Credit Union, you will also earn dividends based on your account activities and average balances.

    Good luck saving!!!

    Thanks, Caitlyn.

  7. Thanks to everyone for these ideas. They are all useful.

  8. Love this article!!! Seriously going to delete my cable now and sign up for Amazon Prime!!

    1. Monica, you may seriously want to look into purchasing a digital antenna. It’s a one-time expenditure but will allow access to all your local stations … many in true HD.

      For outdoor installation, you can’t beat this one: http://amzn.to/2iIPA72

      It’s about $90 on Amazon but worth every dime. There are some cheaper ones, but you may sacrifice the number of stations you’re able to pick up. I bought this antenna four years ago and currently receive 29 unique stations. Of course, yours may differ, depending on location.

      To determine what stations are in your area (plus some other good info), see here: https://nocable.org/availability-report/zip/32218-jacksonville-fl

      Click on “Coverage Lookup” and then “My Current Location” on the drop-down.

      Wishing the best to you.


  9. Love this, Caitlin! I use most of these tips and tricks, but Digit and Project Fi are new to me. Thanks for this article!!

    1. It is crazy how few people have heard of Project Fi! I looooove my phone. It gave me a map of the mall I was in yesterday!

  10. Saving on groceries is a big one for our family; it can make or break our budget! I took a free trial of Plan to Eat (https://www.plantoeat.com) and loved it! You can easily plan weekly or monthly meals (just drag & drop recipes onto the calendar) and it automatically creates your grocery list based on your recipes! It’s super easy and very inexpensive. Actually, Black Friday weekend they run a 50% off sale! 🙂

  11. Thanks for the tips! I’ll have to look at some of these websites.
    I haven’t had cable for years and have saved lots of money. However, I’m paying a ridiculous amount for my internet. I don’t have a choice to change to a new provider where I live. About four years ago, I gave up my home phone and got a new number through Google voice. It’s totally free and I don’t have to give my cell phone number out to everyone. I’ve saved almost
    $1,500. I bought an Obi box, and still have a cordless phone to talk on.
    I have a phone that I could use on Project Fi, but I don’t think I would save money since I love to stream music in my car. I don’t use any data on my current plan doing this.

  12. Wow, what a lot of information is shared here! Thanks everyone!

  13. I already buy the oldest iPhone to save some money, I never thought about giving it up altogether to save money. What a great idea. These are all great ideas. I may give Digit a try too.

    1. Thanks, Katie!! Sometimes I do miss the fancy new iPhone euphoria, BUT then I look at my Project Fi bill and just smile ear to ear. It’s SO satisfying to save that much cash — especially on unused data every month. I also love that it just WORKS when you go overseas.

  14. I visited many blogs except the audio quality for audio songs
    present at this site is actually superb.
