Every now and then, I end up with a bunch of small things to share with you. And since Food Waste Friday is over at Simply Being Mum’s this week, this seemed like a perfect time for a miscellany post!
Get $10 at TopCashBack just for signing up (limited time).
I’ve been using TopCashBack instead of Ebates for the last year or so, mainly because when I check both, TopCashBack offers a higher rate of return in most cases.
If you’ve been on the fence about joining TopCashBack, right now is a super great time to sign up because new members get a $10 bonus right off the bat.
The $10 will be in your account right away, and as soon as you earn $10 in cash back by shopping through TopCashBack, your $10 bonus and your $10 earned cash back will both become payable.
These money you earn from these types of sites isn’t going to be enough to send you on a trip around the world, but I look at it this way:
I willingly use reward credit cards that give back 1-5% in rewards, so why would I pass up the opportunity to earn a similar return on online purchases that I’d be making anyway?
(Especially when I can earn cash back from TopCashBack on top of my credit card rewards.)
Also, you can use TopCashBack to shop for things like Groupons, which is sort of like triple-dipping.
(You earn TopCashBack and credit card rewards for buying a discount voucher. Yay!)
The $10 bonus is only available through this coming Tuesday, June 16th, so make sure to sign up before then.
Sometimes the frugal option is the fast one.
I made a birthday card for my mom yesterday, but it was a decision motivated more by speed/convenience than frugality.
(Though homemade cards ARE super cheap!)
It took me about 3 minutes to put together a minimalist birthday card, and my kids and I wrote notes inside.
Definitely faster than going to a store and picking through eleventy bazillion cards. And I have such a hard time finding a card with wording that I like anyway.
(So many are far more flowery than I prefer. Or over the top. Like, I love Mr. FG dearly, but I’m not gonna buy him a card that says he’s the sun and the moon.)
I also have a stack of blank cards and envelopes (from Goodwill, actually!) that I sometimes use. Blank cards work for every occasion, and then I’m free to write whatever I want inside.
Limeapple has a 30% off swimwear sale today only.
The girls are all still loving their Limeapple activewear sets from Costco.
(The Costco deal was extended, so they’re likely still available at your store if you’re wanting to snag one for your girls!)
Anyway, I got an email this week letting me know that Limeapple is having a 30% off online sale on their swimwear today only.
We haven’t tried Limeapple’s swimwear yet, but based on the quality of the activewear, I think it’d be great.
Use the coupon code LIVLUVSWIM to get the 30% discount.

A Reader Raves about 99 Cent Razor
I love my 99 Cent Razor, but I obviously have only tried these razors for non-facial shaving.
So I was pleased to receive this email from male reader D.D.:
(Yes! Some men do read my blog.)
I just wanted to pass on that I’ve been spreading the word at work regarding the 99 Cent Razor company that you blogged about.
I actually got myself one of the 99 Cent Razors because I’ve been trying different ones like the Member’s Mark razors from Sam’s Club that were much cheaper than Gillette. They were horrible. I looked like I had JUST learned how to shave and was nicked up everywhere!
I was thinking of trying out Dollar Shave Club and then came across your blog. I whole-heartedly agree with your assessment. Their razors are LEGIT! They work great and I’m super pleased with them!
(Just pay $2.95 shipping and handling. And in case you didn’t read my original post, I recommend ordering the men’s razor regardless of your sex because the women’s version currently only comes in a disposable variety.)
Ok! I think that takes care of the random things I wanted to share.
Say, I know a bunch of you ordered 99 Cent Razors after my first post about them (we put them out of stock temporarily!), so I’d love to hear your feedback too.
