How I Save Money While Shopping On A Budget (And Where To Shop!)

Here is a list of sites where I shop to get my clothes, makeup, hair products, and everything else!

Those of you on a budget, check these out! :-)
Disclosure: Some of the links in the list are Referral Links. I have NO Affiliation with any of these companies. I use and love every site that is on this list, which is why I am "referring"/ recommending them.
Quick Tip: Once you have registered with one of these sites, go to their "Referral Program" section and retrieve your own code. If you love the site, share your code with your friends and ask them to check it out as well! Depending on the type of referral program, you could receive a couple bucks, store credit, gift cards, etc.!
See, there are many "out of the box" ways to save while you shop! :-)
The ones that are referral links will say "Referral Link" in the description

Amazon Fire TV**

Streaming media player with 4K Ultra HD. Watch high-definition 1080p streams on Amazon Video, Netflix, Hulu and more. Cut the cord, watch the best of live TV.

My opinion:

Getting the amazon firestick was one of the smartest things I've ever done.
It's very very similar to Apple TV (for those familiar to that). You get access to any and all Movies, TV shows, and Music that's on Amazon.. along with dozens and dozens of other "apps".
Other apps's include: Netflix, Hulu, HBO (and HBO GO), Showtime, Starz, Epix, and all those other premium channels. Along with channels like hallmark, LMN, FX, FXX, FOX, NBC, ABC, Freeform, FOX Sports, NFL Sunday Ticket, and so so so much more!

And of course you're provided with the opportunity to purchase special plans for those movie channel apps (that are way cheaper than having to pay for an expensive package through FIOS, Comcast, Time Warner, etc.)!

It's honestly worth every single penny... and then some!
If you're able to purchase Amazon Prime and the Amazon Firestick, you'd be set!
You'd end up saving so much money on Movies and Music that you'd normally spend renting/purchasing (all unlimited with Amazon prime).
You could also save $$ by sticking to the very basic and cheap cable plan. And use your stick for accessing movies (new-old-indie-anything you could want), your favorite TV shows, and if you download the right app... you may just get movies that are brand new in theaters! 😉
With Amazon Prime, you'll save $$ on shipping w/ their free 2 day shipping (and sometimes 1 day shipping, if it's available!).

Amazon Prime members get special deals and discounts throughout the year, especially when holidays approach.
To make the deals even sweeter, make sure to use the chrome extensions- Ebates & Honey (which are both on this list)- and you'll know you're getting the best deal for your items!
If you're not on the computer, make sure to at least use Ebates!

[Side Note: Amazon is NOT always on ebates. But make sure you keep an eye out! Because when they are, it's for 10%-25% cash back!]

Amazon Fire TV** (HD Antenna Bundle)

Amazon Fire TV + HD Antenna Bundle comes with three separate products: Fire TV, an HD Antenna, and an HDMI cable.When used together you can easily enjoy all the TV you love, without the expense of a cable subscription.

Fire TV Stick** (Alexa Voice Remote)

The next generation of our bestselling streaming media stick. More powerful with the fastest Wi-Fi and most accurate voice search. No cable? No problem.

get your 1st month free just cover shipping

It's always good to "de-hair" yourself, and unfortunately razors are pretty expensive- especially the good quality ones.
By using the dollar shave club, you pay a few dollars a month (definitely less then you'd pay for a regular razor) and you get a full set of cartages that would normally cost you $20-40. Your first order includes the razor handle.

Basically, instead of paying an arm and a leg every month in razors at the store.... You pay $5-$9 a month for they have different packages to choose from)
High quality razor blades and grooming products delivered for just a few bucks.

Health Savings: Dental Discount Plans (AND Vision, RX savings, Health Plans,etc)

Everyone’s dental health needs are unique. That’s why :DentalPlans offers you options plus savings with over 30 plans to choose from. Whether you want to keep your teeth healthy or restore your beautiful smile, we’re here to help.

Traditional dental insurance doesn't meet everyone’s needs. With a dental savings plan – the affordable alternative to dental insurance - you pay one annual fee and get access to significantly reduced rates offered by 100,000+ dentists nationwide all year long. You'll get the quality care you deserve.

They also provide RX savings, Vision Plans, and an amazing "Health Plan" that has very impressive features. I highly recommend taking advantage of everything this site offers... you could save thosands!

Program To Use:: *Ebates*: THE BEST way to shop, promise!

*(The photo above is a screen shot of their app. I took it in the beginning of October 2016)

Ebates is the bomb dot com! (are people still saying that?! Hehe)
When I first heard about ebates, I honestly thought it was a scam... or at the very least, a pain in the tush to actually use.
During the holiday season last year,, I was shopping on Amazon and saw that they were listed on ebates for a x2 Cash Back Special (7% cash back). So I decided to give it a try, because why not?

And That's when my shopping life changed forever lol.
The number of stores that are listed in ebates is very impressive, as well as the special deals you get just for using ebates!
Once you sign up, you can either download the app (which is uber convienent, and super easy), or head to their site -> find the store you're going to shop at -> click on that store-> click on the "Shop Now" button-> you'll be redirected to the online store that you want to shop at -> That's it! 😊

Quick Tip: If you're on your laptop or desk top, you should download the ebates chrome extension! Any time you're on a site where you're buying something, click on the extension button.. and BOOM! Ebates will be activated :-).
Disclosure: If you sign up through the link provided, you'll receive a $10 gift card to whatever place you'd like (some options are Amazon, Walmart, Target,Ebates cash, etc). I swear it's all legit. No scam, and it's not a hassle!
This link is a "referral link" through Ebates. If you use this link to register, You'll receive a +$10 gift card or ebates cash. In return, like most referral programs, I will receive a couple dollars (or Store Credit).
This is at no extra cost for you, but if you'd rather not use this link, it's okay ☺️ .** I was NOT contacted by Ebates and this is NOT an affiliate program. I am recommending (aka referring) you to this site because I use it and love it! I promise all opinions are my own.

Program To Use::: Honey

Honey is a browser extension that automatically finds and applies coupon codes at checkout with a single click. Once you download the extension, simply click on the extension's button once you reach your cart to checkout. It will search everywhere, then present you with the best deals for your products! From there, its 1 more click (to let them know which coupon you want to use).

**I always use this with Amazon (Along with many other popular sites- like groupon), but they are super helpful on Amazon.

Quick Tip: Use this AND ebates at the same time! You'll receive cash back through both programs- and get the best deals possible!
