Avoid The Oops & Shop at Walmart.Com!

This is a Sponsored Post for SheSpeaks/Walmart.

  If your house is anything like MY house during the summer months, you quickly realize how much fun you're having & how quickly you have ran out of a product.  We love hosting bbq's during the summer months & nothing is worse than running out of an essential item!  One thing I always seem to run out of, PAPER TOWELS!  Those of you with kids know that it is a MUST have!  It's such a pain to have to completely stop what you are doing & make a quick trip to the store.  My family recently came to visit & that exact situation happened.  I jokingly suggested they used wash clothes ;) WIth 3 boys of my own, my mom was wondering how could I POSSIBLY not have paper towels on hand.  Sometimes life just gets crazy busy & we forget.  One way to help me www.avoidtheoops.com is shopping online at www.walmart.com.  They have tons of P &G products that I love to use!  My recent order I placed you can see below.  One thing I love is I don't have to run out to get these items.  I'm still getting the same great price & shipping is FREE if you spend $50 or more.  I do quite a bit of shopping online due to our crazy, busy schedule & a baby that's not quite a fan of sitting in the awful shopping cart ;)

I would like to encourage my readers to www.avoidtheoops.com by shopping online at Walmart too.   It's quick & easy!  You are still getting the same great prices but shipped right to your DOOR!  P&G has over hundreds of items listed on Walmart.com, so be sure to check out your everyday household needs!

Dusters, Cascade, Laundry Detergent, Dryer Sheets, Baby Wipes, Paper Towels, & even Razors!  P&G has everything you need!  Walmart.com was also gracious enough to include two free DOVE samples!

Coupons are not always needed......

Although coupons are GREAT, it's not the only way to save money.  I use several cash back apps such as Ibotta, Checkout51, & MobiSave.

Here's a great example of a good deal & no coupons used.  The Purex Crystals are on sale at Walgreens this week for $1.99 (already a great deal).  Plus. for purchasing just ONE you get $1.00 back through Checkout51.  That's like paying .99!  I believe the regular retail value is around $6-$6.50.

Another example:
Purex (Clorox) Detergent on Sale at Walgreens for $1.99
$1.00 Cash Back from Ibotta
= .99!

*Ibotta is probably my favorite cash back app.  It's very easy to use.  I typically cash out & request paypal, which I then transfer right to my bank account.  Checkout51 has really been posting some great rebates lately.  Currently there is a $3 rebate on pampers cruisers diapers!  Pair that with a sale & coupon, you will score them for cheap!  Checkout51 requires that you cash out AFTER you reach the $20 minimum & it's via check only.  

MobiSave is an app I was just introduced to last week.  One thing I LOVE about MobiSave, is the cash back is INSTANT.  Once I upload my receipt & click the offers I redeemed, within minutes I'm usually sent an email confirming they sent my rebate to my paypal account.  

May Earnings.

Not too much going on this month, but I did manage to make over $100.

Free Samples & Magazines!

There's nothing better than finding FREE Samples & Magazines in your mail box as opposed to bills!  If you follow Hip2Save, this is where ALL these samples & magazines came from. Notice some of the sample sizes are generous.  We are going on vacation next month & they are the perfect travel size.

Olay Body Wash
Colgate Mouthwash
Axe Deodorant Spray
Axe Daily Fragrance
Dove Body Wash
TRESemme Samples
Garnier Samples
Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies
Vega Essentials Shake Powder
Nature's Path Organic Pumpkin Flax Granola
Sundown Adult Multivitamin Gummies
Avalon Organics Face Cleansers

*Again, some samples are clearly just that...little thin packets with a one time use.  However, look at the Axe Samples.....perfect for traveling or even just to try.  The companies wants us to try their 'Free' samples in hopes that we will LOVE it & purchase in the future.

I do love my 'trash' magazines!  These two were completely free! I did have to fill out a survey which took maybe 5 minutes, 10 minutes top.  Both magazines have a subscription for 2 years! I was in Walmart the other day and noticed People Magazine was $4.99!  Now keep in mind these magazines come weekly!  That's a great freebie!

I'm a member of Smiley360.  This company will have surveys that you can take to qualify for FREE products.  In return, they'd like for your feedback.  I've tried numerous products through this company & thoroughly enjoy it.  This time I got to try Centrum Vitamints!  I didn't really care for the Wintergreen as it tasted a bit 'too minty', but the Raspberry was really good.  They are chewable multivitamins & are natural too.
