Credit Cards to Pay You

It’s a good idea to find credit card companies that will reward you for using it as long as you are paying it off every month. However, if you feel overwhelmed by doing it yourself, searching for the best one, creditcards.com will do it for you.

Creditcards.com searches and compares hundreds of credit card offers and posts the top 10. Look for a card with $0 annual fees and high cashback percentages. 

With all the credit card rewards, you can use the cashback to put in your savings account. However, if you are only spending to get rewards, this isn’t the best option.

Cut the Cord

I’ve been saying this for a while, and it is still so true. Cut the cord.

We shared a long post on our favorite antenna we used and got at BJs. BUT if I had to choose one program to cut the cord with, it would be Amazon. Not only will you get 2-day free shipping, music, and more, you get to watch great original TV shows and movies.

I keep finding more and more movies I love on Prime so much that I cut Netflix.

There are always lots of FREE streaming trials here. Otherwise, you can sign up for Prime for 30 days FREE here.

Plan Meals & Eat Out Out One Less Time A Month

Eating out is costly. I would encourage you to plan your meals at home to save money. If you can cut back on eating out once a month and then increase it to more each month, you will save quite a bit of cash.

I did a post here about the numbers of eating out verse cooking at home.

If you are intimated about meal planning, I highly recommend this meal planning app called Real Plans. Also, follow my Frugal Meal Planning Pinterest board for more free ideas.

I hope these tips help you to think outside of the box when it comes to saving money.
