Its all gone!

I have used up all my data. That didnt last long.  Hubby has told me that I need to cool it with the internet. lol  I guess I do.  The government will not allow phone carriers to supply unlimited internet data, so I am stuck!!

We are at the library for a few minutes. Hubby told me since it is his day off, he doesnt want to be here long – and I understand.  When he left work yesterday, we headed over to Animal Kingdom.  They are starting to keep that park open late.  This is something they never did before. Usually the park would close around 5 or 6, but I guess so many people complained that they decided to keep it open.

But it was pouring last night when we got home.  I mean, the sky opened up and just let loose!  We were hoping that it was not leaking in the “condo”……which it was!  Today we stopped at Lowe’s to get a rubber sealant  spray to see if we can maybe spray a few areas where the leaks are coming in at.  It was $9.98 and we just didnt have the money for it.  We are absolutely broke.  Thankfully paychecks will be on a consistent period now. Faced with the “What the heck do we do?” I told hubby that our Shop Kicks may give us immediate Lowes Gift Cards.  If you want free money too, get ShopKicks on your phone and use my referral code: http://get.shopkick.com/edge73726

I pulled out my phone and starting letting my fingers walk all over that app.  Sure enough, we could get a gift card that could be electronically sent to us and used immediately. Hubby had enough for $5 and I had enough to get a $5 gift card.  I absolutely LOVE free money!  The only thing we paid was tax.  We paid $0.63 out of our own pocket.

Now we just need to get it on the roof!  Which is another reason why hubby wants to hurry up and get out of the Library!  By the way, the contest is still going for my son.  Just look for this picture to vote:web Z TUCKER-47

VOTE HERE

There is only a few more hours left, and he is in 3rd place.  Really good since he just entered a few days ago.  Everyone else entered earlier in the month!!  I wish he would win – but we are ok if he doesnt. lol  Thanks for your votes.

Until tomorrow, or the next day!!  Thank you all for reading and have an awesome day.

Ibotta a lot with a gift card and…..

Hello!!!  I just wanted to try to get a post in today.  We are still going to the library for internet.  Its hard for me to sit for long periods of time here.  Ok, well not so much me – but son!!  He is a wiggle worm and has to move around a lot.

The other day I posted about apps that will earn you money.  Well, we were able to fully see how these apps paid!  I already knew how Ibotta paid because I have been doing that one for a while.  At least over a year.  We found ourselves in a predicament where we needed to buy bread and eggs, but had only a little change until payday, which was a few days away.  Hubby decided to go ahead and cash in some of his “kicks” on shopkicks for a $5 gift card.

Before we went in, we sat in the van in the parking lot and redeemed the points.  By the time e went into Walmart, the reward gift card was loaded onto his profile on shopkicks.  We also went in and scanned the items that we could to earn more kicks. We went and got our eggs and bread and hubby also got a drink thing that you squirt into water and it flavors it.  By the way, they  also had wine tasting while we were there.  Who woulda thought – Walmart?!?!?!  LOL  It was no bigger than a teaspoon, but still…..WALMART?!?!?!

We took our items to the register and had the lady ring them up. Hubby then showed her the gift card on his phone. She scanned it and told us that our balance was 46 cents!  I dug out mostly pennies and paid the lady.  We then got into the van and I got into my Ibotta app and scanned the receipt for the bread and eggs.  Through Ibotta, I was able to redeem 2 rebates at 25 cents each.  Thats right – I am being paid 4 cents to walk away with the items!!  Thats a good grocery day if you ask me.Yeah, I had to use a combination of both apps to get it, but I got it!!  Here is a copy of my receipt and a screen shot where Ibotta paid me.

Ok, this boy of mine is driving me crazy with wanting to walk all around.  Think I am going back to the “condo” and throw him in the pool. lol  By the way, today is hubbys first day at Disney.  I hope he is having a wonderful day at Orientation.  I know they have changed it up a lot since I have been there. lol  Anyway, have a great day!!  Thanks for reading. I leave you with a funny!!  My relatives can visit whenever!! lol

Apps that will earn you money.

Just a quick post.  I have come across a few apps that will help you earn free money.  Two of them you just go into the store and scan products.  Its not a whole lot of money, but every little bit helps.  If you use my referrals, then I will earn while you are earning.  Get your friends to sign up under your referral and you will earn while they are earning.  We hope to take this free money and turn it into a vacation for us.  Hubby is doing it too!!  Disclaimer:  I do not know if these apps are available in other countries.

Shopkicks:

This one I scan products and get points as I walk into some places.  I can redeem for several types of gift cards.  I am going to use them for Walmart gift cards.

Checkpoints:

Use the bonus code while signing up –    Stucker28

If you go past it and do not put it in, they will not allow you to later.  It has to be done at the point where you are signing up. This one also is gift cards.  I am using this one for Walmart gift cards.

 

Ibotta:

Use referral code jqziiq.  This one you have to unlock discounts.  You scan your receipt and/or product that you have purchased and they will create an account for you with that savings in it.  The other day, I was able to purchase pasta, scan the receipt and they put $0.25 into my account.  Once I reach $20, I can transfer it to paypal.

Thank you all so much for reading. Have a great day!

Busy lil bees just a flying all around

Thats the way I feel today.  I have things to do and dont feel like I have enough hours to do them in.  I have got to stop by the pharmacy at some point.  I just dont want to leave out.  Why, you ask.  Its flipping HOT today.

I was at the laundromat earlier and thought I was going to sweat to death – and I was the only one in there running any of the machines.  lol  I had four loads to do today.  You might wonder where we actually stash dirty laundry to keep it out of the way so that we dont walk all over it.  In the closet of course!  I shut the door and forget!  I have started to perfect this whole laundry game.  I am going once every week and a half.  It takes me about $10-$12 to wash and dry the four loads.  It just works better for us.  Usually I will stay in there and fold my clean laundry on the tables, but it was so hot today that I brought it home.  All laundry has been washed, dried, folded and put away!!

I have things around here I need to do, but just dont feel like it.  Hubby is off work by 6pm today, and he wants to go walk around Disney Springs.  Im just not sure.  Its just so hot. lol  I am such a sad case.  I hibernate in the house during the summer time unless I am going to the pool.  But I dont like cold weather either and could never survive in an area that got really cold and snow. See, sad case!!

We also need to stop in at Best Buy and a few other places near it so that we can get our ShopKicks.  All for walking in.  I am about 200 “kicks” away from having a free $5 gift card from Walmart.  I know it doesnt sound like a whole lot – but its FREE!!  I havent spent anything to get them.  Of course, if I did, I would get more kicks and get to my rewards a lot faster.  But I am ok with  just getting kicks for walking in and scanning things.  If you sign up for this, I will receive about 50 kicks!

We got the official “YOUR HIRED” email from Disney today.  I can say that hubby is now officially a Disney Cast Member!!

Hubby said I could post  – only if I removed his name! lol  

He has a ton of stuff to fill out.  But he can do most of it all from the comfort and luxury of our “condo”. It is a step in the right direction and hopefully he will be able to work himself into the IT Dept.  He was so excited when he called earlier, “Babe….. we get 50-60% off cruises with Disney!!!  Based on availability.”  Ummmm, yeah!  Im there.  Maybe next year for Mothers Day, or soon after!!  We have never been on a Disney cruise.  I never could see paying the $$ for it.  But heck, if they are going to mark it down way low – YES!!!  I will go.  lol  While I am thinking about travel, I just wanted to let you all know – I knew that the Keys would be too expensive for us to do right now.  I didnt want anything thinking we were crazy or anything since we are strapped for cash right now.  We are not going to go and I had to show hubby just how much it would cost.  Once I did, there was no other talks of it.  Its just one of those things where you wish you could but know you cant and even though you cant you are still going to verbalize it. So, thanks for letting us “dream” yesterday. lol

I better get off here and go do the things I need to do.  I will be grumbling the whole way! lol  Thank you all for reading and have an awesome day.
