I have a smartphone and do everything I can to make it pay for itself. Two apps I love are Ibotta ibotta.com/r/zyHDqQ
and Endorse. I get money back on my purchases. I have been most successful with Ibotta. I use coupons and get money back thru Ibotta as well. When my account hits $5, I can have them send my money to PayPal. I've gotten over $25 back so far. Since there are 6 people in our family, groceries are a big expense.
Using coupons, I usually get $40 off grocery bill each time I go.
When something we use goes on a really good sale, I buy 6 weeks worth so I can avoid paying full price. Just pay attention to the expiration dates. I write the dates large in Sharpie marker so I can be sure to use stuff in time.
