Can I let you in on a little secret? I LOVE saving money, but like most working moms, I don’t have a lot of extra time for it.

How to Save Money Without Clipping Coupons

That’s why I’m all about finding creative ways to save my family of five money while maximizing my time. From shopping at specific stores to using savings apps to buying generic, I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to save!

1.Shop Where the Deals Are At

I have specific stores that I like to shop at, but I always check prices before I head out to see which stores have the best deals. Unless the savings are minimal, it definitely pays to shop where the prices are lowest.

I’ve found that Walmart tends to have the lowest prices on beauty and personal care items, as well as apparel and grocery items. It really is a one-stop-shop! I like to shop there when I need to buy a wide variety of things because it saves me time and money.

2. Buy Generic

Plain and simple — if you skip buying name brands, you can save a lot of money. There are some brands that I am loyal to, but for the most part, I have no problem buying generic to save.

3. Use Ibotta to Save Even More on Your Purchases

For stores that don’t have loyalty programs such as Walmart, you can still save on your purchases with Ibotta, a cash back app that is fun and easy to use!

If you shop at Walmart, you may have heard that the Walmart Savings Catcher App will no longer be available as of May 14. The good news is Ibotta has everything you need to score big deals at Walmart, as well as tons of other stores!

The great thing about Ibotta is it’s FREE and super easy to use!
