As a mom, wife, and blogger I’ve become an expert at finding fabulous deals on household items, clothing, toys, and gear. I hate paying full price for anything. It’s all about hitting daily deal sites.
I’m all for making & saving money. It’s survival for us as a family.
I can’t be out spending hundreds of dollars on clothes, toys, shoes, accessories, and books. I wish I could, but it’s not something that’s possible. So it’s become a passion of mine.
I’m a deal shopper, through and through, and I love that many of the places I score deals at are right here online. I can shop in my jammies, on the couch with a cup of coffee, while watching Idol!
There are a ton of destinations online that promise to deliver some amazing deals for us moms, but I have to admit, not all of them do. I’ve completely become a pro at knowing where to “surf” around and where to shop. I literally hit up about eight different deal sites every single morning.
I have a list in my head as to what I know that I need, and I just keep my eyes peeled.
So what am I loving this week? Want some great gift ideas? I wanted to share my favorite things this week for moms, bloggers, and work at homers with you!

If you’re a newbie here, let me fill you in. Side Hustle & Save is ALL ABOUT making money from home and saving money. Here is a list of my favorite ways to save and make money.
- Start blogging. Blogging can be difficult because you can’t go to college for it, but you can enroll in courses that tell you everything you need to know. I personally went through and recommend Career in the Making, Blog by Number Ebook and Strategies Worth Sharing.
- Answer surveys. I use the following surveys, and my readers use these too: Swagbucks, My Points, Ipsos i-Say, Inbox Dollars and Grab Points.
- Save on food, especially fruits and veggies. Ibotta is a super user-friendly app. All you have to do is choose the items you want to get cash back on, buy them at the store, and then take a photo of your receipt on the Ibotta app. (You get $10 for signing up through my link here).
- If you’re an online shopper, get cash back with Ebates just for shopping like you regularly do. Ebates is free, and you get $10 when you sign up through my link.
