One of the biggest expenses in the average American family’s budget is food! Dining out often in restaurants doesn’t do any good for your budget. Cutting back on dining out and enjoying home-cooked meals is the easiest way to save a lot of money. Here are a few free apps and websites that can help you save money.
1. Rebate apps
Rebate apps help you get cashback in the form of rebates when you buy groceries and many other items. You can earn real cash back from these apps in three different ways: 1 – by shopping at online retailers’ sites, 2 – by uploading a receipt of your purchases on the rebate app, and 3 – by linking your store loyalty program account with your rebate app account. Typically, once you have a certain amount of cashback in your rebate app account, you’ll be able to transfer that amount to your PayPal account. You may also have an option to cash out your cash back savings with a gift card.
2. $5 Dinners
Is your grocery budget spiraling out of control? The $5 Dinners website might help! The site provides a wide variety of recipes that you can cook for under $5. Along, with dinners, you can also find suggestions for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and desserts.
3. Out of Milk
You buy a carton of milk only to come home to another carton picked up by your partner. This has likely happened to you at least once. Double buying groceries can cause a dent in your savings. The Out of Milk app helps you to create and categorize your grocery list and share them with others in your home. That way, you are less likely to pick an item that has already been bought.
4. Using a meal delivery service
If savings and convenience are both important to you, online meal delivery services could be the answer. Meal delivery service websites usually offer you ingredients, and sometimes even fully-cooked meals, so you don’t have to go through the hassle of grocery shopping to cook a meal. The price is also not too high, so it’s worth checking this out.
