Money Monday – Stretch Your Grocery Budget With Coupons and Cash Back Apps

I took a little break from writing last a post last Monday but this week I thought I would share with you some ways to stretch your grocery budgets that little bit further.

Couponing

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that while I’m not extreme I do like a bit of couponing, coupons are everywhere nowadays, the internet is a fantastic resource for finding them and a search of ‘Extreme Couponing’ on Facebook will bring up some brilliant pages my personal favourites are Coupon Shop and Coupon Crazy Cat Lady .

I like to make the most of my coupons by using them when the product is on a promotional sale, this often makes the product totally free or a crazy low price, you can see my post here  about getting the most value from your coupons.

I recently bought this little folder for £2.20 from Amazon to keep all my coupons organised.

Cash Back Apps

I’ve been aware of cash back apps for a while but have always been a bit wary of them for some reason, the difference between these and using a physical coupon is that you have to pay for your product out of pocket and then use the app to claim the money back.

This Jelly was free after using the Shopitize app.

After feeling very inspired by Laura from Coupon Crazy Cat Lady I decided to give it a go, I’m really glad I did as the apps have improved ten fold since I last tried them, here are the ones I’m using at the moment.

Shopitize

Quidco ClickSnap

TopCashback Snap & Save

CheckOutSmart

I also have the One Stop and Bargain Booze apps installed as they regularly offer great freebies.

Do you enjoy couponing ? leave me a comment below I would love to hear from you.
