I have spent SO much time looking for promo codes, coupons, and codes to make sure I pay the lowest price I can (and if you are reading this, I’m sure you have too). This is a browser extension that makes life much easier! When you go to a website and are looking at buying something, #HONEY finds all of the best promo codes and coupons and will also show if it is a good time to buy due to the websites price changes!


On top of that, you can get hidden rewards for discount hotels and more. I am still finding new ways to make this website work for me!

It really can’t get much better than this. I find great discounts so I am saving money without ever leaving the site you are shopping on.
You earn rewards for getting others to join as well! So please click the link below for my referral to get started! Having others join through me makes it easier to spend time finding the best REAL apps/discounts!

Get REAL gift cards EASY using Swag-Bucks!

I have spent countless hours trying to find legitimate ways to earn extra cash from home, find awesome deals to save my family and I money and use apps that actually offer REAL rewards. It can be frustrating because you usually end up with a TON of spam calls and e-mails, scam after scam and so much wasted time. My goal is to bring others ways that I have found and personally tested so you don’t have to waist all of that time yourself. I will give a full and honest review of what I have done with each promoted link, how much I have seen back and tips/tricks to make more yourself! 


This is one of my personal favorite ways to earn rewards/money, find awesome deals and pass my time while working to earn something for that time.

Just by clicking my link below and signing up for swag-bucks yourself, you will earn “Swag Points”. You can redeem these points for gift cards of your choice or use them to enter other sweepstakes and contests. I have found that you need less points using swag-bucks to actually get gift cards for yourself then most other apps like this.

You can earn “Swag Points” by taking real surveys (If you qualify), watching videos (easy to play videos and let them continue to run while you walk away and do other things), play games (I have yet to do this part so I am not sure how that is), Discover cool new shopping ideas/subscriptions etc (great way to earn a bunch of points and discover new things you would not have otherwise known about), Cashback for your everyday online shopping (make sure you check that you will earn swag points for the category you are shopping for before hand..but they are usually good with covering most categories) and referring your friends/family or on your websites.

One example of how I made money using swag-bucks is that I saw a deal if you signed up for Hulu. I don’t remember exactly how many points it was worth but it ended up giving me enough points to get a $25 Gift card for Amazon (that was my choice, but they offer many other gift cards as well). I already had a Hulu subscription but saw it was going to be renewing in a few days. I canceled my subscription, and signed back up through swag-bucks. I waited a few days for the points to clear and redeemed my $25 gift card for Amazon.com. Not only did I get a FREE gift card, I also ended up saving $2 a month for my Hulu subscription. It really was THAT EASY!!

You need to read the details of how to get the swag points, and i highly suggest exploring the website, blog, and social media accounts so you can get as much as you can out of this. I am still learning new ways to earn points as well! Social media pages have special codes that come up which you can in turn redeem for free points.

So many other apps and sites like this may be similar, but swag-bucks has shown me the highest rate of return for the amount of time and effort I put into it.

If you have not tried it out yet, click on the link below and start earning points! If you sign up through my link, you will get 300 SB (swag points) which as today (January 6th 2018) you can get a free $5 MasterCard gift card for ONLY 480 SB. That means you just need 180 SB to get that which can be done with one simple other task!

I hope you guys like it as much as me. This will probably not create enough of an income to live off of (unless maybe you shop ALL the time) but it is a great way to earn money for the shopping you would already be doing and more!

East Coast Love

If you are traveling in the United States, get a taste of the real East Coast.  The big cities have plenty to offer, but there is much more to the Atlantic shore.

The Appalachian Trail is not only a great example of adventure on the East coast, but it also serves as a reference point for some other wonderful places. From Georgia to Maine there are many great places to visit, but I will highlight two that my family and I were fortunate enough to enjoy this year.

If you are trying to get out of city life for a while, try some of these sweet spots that fly under the radar.

Topsail Island, NC

We spent a week in Topsail Island, NC, a beautiful community along the Intracoastal Waterway, South of the Outer Banks. North Topsail Beach is a taste of the beach life without all the crowds and tourist traps.

Topsail Island is a popular nesting ground for Sea Turtles and Topsail Turtle Project has been doing wonderful work for decades to preserve and protect the turtles and their nests. I highly recommend taking a tour of the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital, and do your part by picking up some trash while you’re finding sea-shells on the gorgeous beaches.

The house we stayed in, Bob’s Hope, is beautifully perched in the center of a narrow section of the island. With a wrap-around deck, a crow’s nest and water on both sides, you can enjoy both sunrise and sunset. If you’re lucky, you may even get to witness a hatching of a sea turtle nest.

Whether you come to surf, fish, or just lounge in peace, the options are plentiful and the lines are short. The fishing and crabbing are usually great, but if you don’t catch anything with the bait you’re using, a $20 bill usually works pretty well down at the fish markets. Check out Davis Seafood and Surf City Crab. 

Luray, VA

Another wonderful hideaway along the East Coast is nestled in the Shenandoah Valley. The Virgina countryside is full of adventure and history. Enjoy a few days at Shenandoah National Park. Explore the park and it’s plentiful wildlife during the day, and sleep under the stars at night.

FB_IMG_1511585140705This stretch of the Skyline Drive also offers underground adventure. Skyline Caverns and Luray Caverns make for a fun and educational spelunking experience for the whole family.


To really get a feel for the Shenandoah Valley you have to take a trip downstream. Downriver Canoe Company offers a wonderful variety of river trips, fun for the novice, as well as the expert. Their knowledge of, and respect for the river, is what sets Downriver apart from other outfitters.

Don’t worry, Virgina has plenty to do in the winter too. If you want to hit the slopes, check out Massanutten Mountain.

Look for youth hostels and campgrounds
