We all love our phones, am I right? Instant access to anything – shopping, pictures, communication and even the rare actual phone call. Social media has taken over most of our lives – for both personal and blogging use. Besides those apps, there are a number of other apps that I use so regularly that they’ve made my favorites list.
I often think a book looks great, thinking I would really like it, only to find out (multiple chapters in) that I’ve already read it. Goodreads keeps track of every book I’ve read, as well as books I want to read. I love that I can connect with people to get ideas on new books to read, too!
I like this app because it gives me cash back on my normal grocery shopping. In just over a year I’ve earned $85, which isn’t bad for not doing anything! With this app, you can join your friend’s team and earn extra cash with team bonuses. Pairing this app with the next on my list saves me a lot of money…
This is a no-brainer since I do most of my shopping at Target. Pairing Cartwheel with coupons and Ibotta, I’ve saved $470 in less than three years.

This is a referral guide for essential oils – right at my fingertips, all of the time. I can search by oil or ailment. It’s not free, but for $7 it’s really a great resource as we are trying to move towards being more natural in the way we take care of ourselves.
Discount children’s, women’s and home items, updated every day? Yep, sign me up. I have notifications set for my favorite brands so I don’t miss out – there are often a limited number of each size. I get the girls Tiny Toms every year for a fraction of the price in even Nordstrom Rack. I’ve loved Zulily since I was pregnant with E, which was (gasp!) six years ago.
Of course, I’m no stranger to shopping. I always, always, always check Ebates before purchasing something online. I often get cash back on items that I would be purchasing anyway. Since I joined I have earned over $900, which was either paid out by check or Amazon giftcard.
Speaking of shopping, I also never shop either in store or online without first checking RetailMeNot. There is almost always a coupon available for any store I am shopping at. I can either use the code online or pull up the coupon to be scanned on my phone.
So there you have it. Besides the standard Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest – these are the apps that I am checking the most often. What are your favorites? I love finding new-to-me resources!
