Share the Love

 

February is a month of love, and getting a $5 bonus from Swagbucks is their way of showing it!

Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys.

Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash. When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a $5 bonus!

Here’s how:

1. Sign up using this link

2. Earn 300 SB total before 3/1/17. You’ll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it!

3. If you spend at least $25 through Swagbucks Shop* you’ll get another $2 (200 SB) bonus on top of the cash back you’ll get from shopping.If you have some shopping to do online, just go to Swagbucks first and visit the store through them. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, but you’ll get SB points for every dollar you spend (on top of the bonus)!

That’s it. It’s super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I’ve earned thousands of Swagbucs and I use them for gift cards to shop more! *You must receive your shopping SB before April 1st

Frugal Valentine’s Day Ideas for Couples

 

 

Valentine’s Day means spending the day with a special someone. It doesn’t mean you have to break the bank in order to enjoy some time with them and celebrate your relationship.

Simple ideas can make your day perfect.

There have been many years that my husband and I stayed in and just enjoyed the day together. Especially when the kids were younger. It wasn’t easy to find a sitter for Valentine’s Day so we usually just made dinner and watched a movie together.

Here are some frugal ideas for Valentine’s Day:

Make a coupon booklet for someone special. Add your own ideas to the book. (ie. Foot Rub, Night off from Cooking, Date Night Your Choice etc. ) You can find a free template from 247moms.com to use when you are making your coupon booklet. (If you don’t want to make your own from scratch.)

Valentine Coupon Book

Instead of going out, make dinner and surprise your special someone with a romantic dinner by candle light. (Bonus points if you make your special someone’s favourite meal. )

Valentine's Day Dinner

If you have Netflix, watch the movie of your first date if it is on there or pick a movie you both want to see. Grab some snacks, cuddle and enjoy the movie together.

Netflix for Valentine's Day

Make a collage of photos of you as a couple. Add any ticket stubs or brochures to places you have been together. Maybe even add stuff from where you went on your first date. Give it to your special someone to hang up.

ticket stubs

Have a firepit in the backyard? Bundle up, grab some wine, start a fire. Enjoy each other’s company under the stairs while you talk and laugh. Don’t like to drink? Make hot chocolate for both of you to enjoy.

Spending time at a fire.

Stick Love Notes all over the house where your special someone would find them. Because my husband is a trucker and on the road often. I like to stick notes into his gym bag, so that he see them when he needs to get clothes out for himself.

If you have the children with you on Valentine’s Day, you can make it special with them. Have heart shaped foods (Pizzas, eggs, cupcakes and more), play some board games together and then settle down with some snacks and with a kid friendly movie on Netflix. (or pop a movie into the DVD player.)
