Are you a fan of Ibotta?! If so, you are definitely going to want to take a look at Checkout51!  Similar to Ibotta (except that a Smartphone is not required!), Checkout51 pays you cash when you purchase select items at your local store(s) or even online.
How does it work?
* Head here and download the Checkout51 App for FREE (available for both iTunes and Android). If you don’t have a Smartphone, you can still use Checkout51 on your computer – just create an account here.

* Browse through the different offers available (I was offered $1 cash back for buying a gallon of milk and lots more – see some of my offers pictured above!).
* Buy items from the Offer List at ANY store (offers are available in limited quantities so be sure to check your offer list before you go shopping to ensure that the offer is still available)
* Upload a photo of your entire receipt using the app or website (it is recommended that you upload your receipt immediately after purchase since there are only limited quantities of offers available)
* When your account reaches $20, you can cash out and they’ll mail you a check
* Note that offers go live on Thursdays at 12AM in each time zone and they expire the following Wednesday at 11:59PM in each time zone. You must submit the receipts while the offers are live.
* Items purchased from online retailers are eligible for cash back. Packing slips are accepted as proof of purchase. Keep in mind that online purchases are subject to the same submission timelines as receipts.
*And you can stack offers if Ibotta has matching ones (last week I saved $1.50 on a gallon of milk woohoo!)

Black Sails on STARZ

Black Sails

1715. The Golden Age of Piracy in the Caribbean is at its apex. The former British colony of New Providence Island is now lawless territory, controlled by the most notorious pirate captains in history. The most feared among them is CAPTAIN FLINT.

But as the British Navy returns to these waters, threatening to exterminate Flint and his crew, another side of him emerges. Driven by deep, complicated, even romantic motives, Flint allies himself with the formidable ELEANOR GUTHRIE, daughter of the local smuggling kingpin who turns the pirates’ loot into profits. Together, they forge a plan to hunt the ultimate prize, and by winning it, stave off reclamation of their home to ensure their survival.

Arrayed against them are a series of opponents: rival captains, jealous of Flint's power; Eleanor's father, whose ambitions for the island conflict with his daughter’s; and a young sailor, JOHN SILVER, recently recruited onto Flint's crew, who will somehow manage to constantly undermine his captain’s agenda.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years

Hey everybody after taking a break over the Christmas and New Years weeks I am back and excited for 2014!

2013 was a whirlwind and so much fun but I am really looking forward to having more fun in 2014. We have a awesome Disney trip planned for November (and we are FLYING this year!) I know several people have asked how much Disney really costs so I will let you know that our trip before any discounts (those will hopefully come around May!) is $1543.82. This includes: Hotel, park tickets for 7 days that allow us to go from park to park (there are four at WDW in case you wondered), transportation to and from airport, and transportation all around the resort. Airfare is going to cost us another $650 and we will budget around $500 for food/souvenirs. That brings our total needed to right at $2700. I will be updating over the months about ways I have paid toward this with thriftiness.  Right now it breaks down to:

$250 Christmas cash from family
$50 Landry's Gift Card from Mypoints  -can be used at T-Rex, Rainforest or Yak & Yeti
$223 in Disney Gift Cards we did not use on 2013 trip
$50 (paypal) from Swagbucks
That means I have $573 and need $2127 to be at goal

I also realized the last few months I am not using as many traditional coupons. With the Ibotta app, e-coupons, and the fact that we just plain are using products that there are coupons on I don't even use my coupon binder anymore! Shocking I know.

I want to share more of our fun times with you guys this year along with deals, recipes, and shopping fun.

Welcome to the ride and
