thrifty thursday #29

  • Tervis has an amazing lifetime guarantee, so a while back I had sent in a Tervis tumbler that had started allowing moisture in between the layers. My little Yankees jersey patch couldn't be saved, so they sent me a code for $22.99 off anything in their store. I ended up ordering this water bottle for when I travel, and I only paid $3.16 with free shipping.
  • After pending for what seemed like forever, a Poshmark purchase I made was approved to my ibotta account and I qualified for the Poshmark bonus, which was $10! That put me over the threshold to cash out, so $21.70 was instantly sent to my PayPal account by ibotta*. I also earned a quarter at CVS for any item, and 50¢ at Walmart.
  • Simple* now has a feature to open an Emergency Fund and every time I make some affiliate money or money via rebate apps, I transfer that over to it along with 12¢ a day that automatically comes out every morning. It's nice to see that number growing!
  • I'd been in the market for carry on luggage for my trips to travel, but turns out my mom had an extra she's letting me use, so I saved pretty penny. Do you know how expensive luggage is???
  • One night I stopped to pick up nasal spray (the bane of my existence) and used $5 ECBs at CVS to bring my total for the spray under $2.
  • I've been loading up on free eBooks from Riffle and BookBub emails.
  • My first check from training at my serving job came in and I stashed part of it in my emergency fund.
  • Picked up some lunch essentials at Food Lion the other day and earned $1 via ibotta and another $1 via Saving Star.
Frugal Fails
  • I travel around a lot for umpiring and I'm bad about stopping for fast food or bottled water, which just nickel and dimes me to death.
