    I’ve been using Ibotta for groceries, but didn’t realize I could use it for delivery. Thanks for sharing.

    Since I haven’t left home in 7 weeks, I’ve been having my groceries delivered from King Soopers. I am getting points for getting gas when ever I might be driving around again and using their digital coupons.

    This is pretty cool. I wish there were more services like this for Canadians. D:

    Things are not as scarce this month, but the prices have sure gone up and stores like Publix have cut their weekly sale ad in half. I stock up on items I need/want when I find great deals and I have made a few swaps over the past few months. I buy whatever good produce I find during my trips to Aldi’s every other week. Definitely love your tips! It’s nice earning cashback through Ibotta. I need to start looking at the app before I go to the store though because sometimes I pass up on something I want and don’t take Ibotta into consideration until I get home and look over my receipt.

      It’s a shame that they cut their sales ad in half! Hope Ibotta helps. I forget sometimes and do exactly what you’ve done. It’s hard to remember everything, especially during this pandemic. I don’t think my brain is working as well as it used to. Lol 🙂

    You are right,at the beginning of the quarantine I seemed to spend more money than normal on groceries! I am all in for saving money! I am going to have to check out Ibotta,seems like something would be worth trying!

    I have become a lot more aware of prices and bargains since quarantining with my two younger kids and my twin two year old grandsons occasionally. I find everyone is snacking more than usual.While I’m limiting my visits to the grocery stores I am ordering Amazon Pantry several times a month.I utilize their coupons to save money.I also load Food Lion coupons to my MVP card.I plan to start printing coupons also. I do use cashback sites when I shop online. I love finding clearance online at Walmart etc.

    Thanks for the discount heads up. I have been buying in bulk to save and to keep safer

    I think we all need help in this area these days. My biggest lesson has been to steer away from buying perishable items. Too many times, things are going unused and then they go bad and have to be thrown away. So if at all possible, I buy only things I absolutely know we are going to use immediately.

    You are so smart! Thank you for your advice and tips!

    Almost a year…. I have graduated to doing pick up rather than delivery. Since I just got my 2nd vaccine, I may get bolder and go INTO the store.

    I never order grocerys on line but my sister in law does and she uses a couple of these and says it saves her a lot of money
