When we first started our savings journey, I used to laugh at free sample offers. I mean, come on, you’d get some minuscule amount of a product to try. Big deal.

We also signed up for some survey companies. I figured I might be able to earn a little extra money by doing them. Well, I was right.
I set up a special email address for the survey companies I signed up with. This way, my main mailbox won’t get inundated with survey opportunities and updates.

We have been getting the Amazon gift cards and using them for some of our non-perishable needs – (more cash left in our pockets). This will help us to continue to cut our monthly grocery out of pocket expenses!
