My wife loaded Checkout 51 on her tablet, so I hope to utilize it more. So far we have not qualified for a $20 check back, but in time we will. I have ended up saving good money by carefully looking at discount stickers on certain items at the nearby Target Superstore. I've bought stuff like 85/15 grass-fed ground beef normally $6.99 a pound with a $5.00 off sticker. That made it $1.99 while they sold their fattest regular gr beef.

Doesn't happen often but I get lucky at least 2 times a week. Checkout51 has the advantage of offering deals for a variety of items as well as stores (even Walmart).

Please check out some of the recipes offered much earlier in the team's history. I also have pins on pinterest.com/gcandj/ even in the free books, secret recipes, just cheap, and bulk recipes sections. There is a delightful pinterest board I've found on Old mountain folk recipes more than 7 decades old... most of them from scratch. Often they are a picture of a handwritten recipe... I like those in particular.

I've been off & on with Spark, but I am new to this team of yours --
we are extremely low income & making the most with it ...


so, how did Checkout51 work for you?

It's good to see you on the boards! Welcome again. Eating on a budget must be about being frugal. I look forward to reading clues and tips, fave stores for sales, etc.

Have you looked into Checkout51? So far I've earned $2, but that'll be about a weekly amount for buying items I normally buy anyway. After the balance is $20 they send you a check.

Or so they say. hahaha

Hello! My name is the_little_lady. Although, the name should be frugal as I am totally frugal.

Every team that I belong to is about being frugal. I am not ashamed.

I buy on clearance whenever possible. I use coupons when possible. Sale? If it's a good one.
