Money saving tips to fill your pantry – MMO Series

Money saving tips to help fill your pantry!

Before I talk about the money saving tips to help you fill your pantry in this post, I want to tell you all of a story. Here goes: I visited a friend’s house recently and as I entered, I regretted my decision. The floors were lined with cat poop and puke, dirt clung to the walls in chunks, and cobwebs surrounded the ceilings, light fixtures, windows, and anything on the walls. I took a breath in and gasped at the horrid smell that met my nostrils. Could people really live this way?

I walked in further and noticed their three year old daughter playing on the ground, sitting near a crusty lump of what I could only assume was old food. She crawled over to another toy and stuck her hand into her mouth to suck on her cat-hair covered thumb.

Like many millennials, I struggle with what it means to truly be an adult. It’s hard to adult in this day and age – I feel like I need more training or 20 more years or maybe just another ten minutes of sleep.

Despite my lack of Adulting training, I knew from the depths of my soul that this was not how adults were supposed to live. I vowed at that moment to never allow my house to become that dirty.

However, that meant a need to purchase more cleaning supplies than normal and as we all know, I am working on paying down my debt as aggressively as possible.

I’ve looked at countless money saving tips throughout my frugal living – how to earn extra money online, how to save money on veggies, how to live frugally in your every day life, etc. That’s what brings me to the money saving tips of this post.

Here’s today’s post for our Make Money Online Series.

The Make Money Online Series is a compilation of blog posts and guest posts discussing how it is possible to make extra cash online. When I first started my journey to pay off my debt fast and become debt free, I searched every possible nook and cranny to find options to earn extra money – in fact, I’m still looking! I scavenged the internet searching for options and signing up for everything that I possibly could.

Of course, this led to a bunch of spam and horrible programs that lie and do not actually help to make money online at all. SO, I’ve developed this series to help debunk those programs so that those of you who are in need of some extra cash, whether it’s because you’re tired of living paycheck to paycheck, want to pay off your debt fast, or want to find a way to support your family as a stay at home mom, won’t struggle to find tried and true methods to earn money online.

We’ll cover topics ranging from freelancing to blogging to direct sales to micro jobs, etc. and posts will be made every other day – so keep checking back for more or sign up for our weekly newsletter! For a compilation of all topics that have already been posted, click here (HERE).

Money Saving Tips to Fill Your Pantry

Today’s money saving tips are brought to your from ePantry. Now, I know what you are thinking: can you actually make money online with ePantry? And the answer – I’m sure you don’t want to hear it – is no. You can’t technically make money online with ePantry. However, you can earn money that translates into store credits which can be used to make purchases you would have made anyway – and isn’t that the same thing?

The way ePantry works is simple. You sign up for an account: HERE, you pick what you are interested in buying, and you make a purchase. Now, there are a couple of things you should know.

First of all, ePantry is all about creating products that are safe for your family and for the environment. I think this is by far the greatest thing about ePantry. The products work really well (we’ve tried a few of them and have our favorites, which I’ll gladly share if you’re interested), they smell fresh and clean, they sanitize where we need sanitation, but they aren’t dangerous for pets or kids (which is really important to my wife and I).

Not only are they safe for our family, but they’re safer for the world. For each shipment ePantry sends out, they save 25 square feet of rain forest because, as they state, “we believe in homes. Your home, where we send natural products, and our collective home that we all share.” The goal is to help keep our earth healthy for as long as we can.

With each shipment, ePantry sends tips to help improve your life and your world. Some of these tips include:

Take your own mug to the coffee shop – some shops will even give you a discount for bringing your own cup.

Shake and fold! Drying your hands with paper towels? Shake your hands and fold the towel – and you will be dry in only one sheet.

Bike, use public transit, carpool to work, drive slower, keep your tires inflated. One-third of all traffic is commuters!

Turn off the water while your brush! An oldie, but a goodie – and we can each keep nearly 2,000 gallons of water from going down the drain each year.

Second, you can get a lot of FREE things from ePantry – if you know where to look! Most times, you get free things just by signing up for ePantry itself!

You can also earn free things by inviting your friends. For every friend who signs up, you get a $10 credit to your account which = free things to help fill your pantry!

AND for the first ten people you invite via an email address, you get a free pack of toilet paper – regardless of whether they even open the email! I would say those are some awesome money saving tips, but you already know that. How could you not?

I’m sure you’re wondering what products are offered, right? Well, there is a whole array of great products for you to choose from from baby supplies to cleaning supplies, laundry supplies to face and hair products, paper supplies to oral care, ePantry has it all! Don’t let this list stop you from checking them out – there’s so much to choose from, I can’t put them all on one page. Visit their website to see what they have to offer by clicking HERE now!

I know what you’re thinking: there has to be a catch. And I wouldn’t be telling the truth if I said that there wasn’t. The truth is, for your first order, you are required to spend at least $20. You get your products, you aren’t paying more for them, and you aren’t forced to buy anything you don’t want, but you do have to spend $20 before you can start earning money on ePantry. I sincerely hope that you do not let this little purchase stand in your way of filling your pantry for free for years to come. It’s only a one-time purchase and after that – get ready to have free things piling into your pantry. Of course, if you have concerns, just let me know!

Oh, before I forget, another great thing about ePantry is their ability to build orders. You can choose to have orders shipped monthly if you don’t want to have to keep coming back, but don’t worry, you can cancel any time you want – no charge.

Whether you are looking to save the world or save some money, ePantry is the way to go.

  1. This is fast becoming one of my favourite blogs. This series is awesome! The only downside is I’m a Brit so some of your tips are only US applicable but it is still awesome! Keep it up.

    1. Aw, thank you, Tori! I’m so glad you’re enjoying them as much as I have enjoyed writing them 🙂 That is unfortunate that you can’t utilize all of the tips, but I’ll work on finding tips that are applicable in all areas – so keep following!

  2. Lovely site, lovely ideas.
    some years ago I received a book: Zero waste. The ideas are similar (ok, not all ideas 🙂 ) but from frugality and friendly to nature and to my budget I can mention:
    – no car for us: use bike and public transport
    -less garbage: I am buying smart, I am doing compost
    -most water consumption was..taking too long showers; I pay more attention and… the consumption is at a half!
    -less electrical consumers in the house: I wash clothes smart, no hair dryer, no clothes dryer, no air conditioning, no ironing, more time outside
    -gardening reduce the budget in the summer by 5-10 weekly!. Now I have a small garden and containers, but even in containers I can save a lot of money for condiments and green salads, for free: seeds reused, water reused (water from washing the fruits and vegetable), soil from compost
    -recycling: unused clothes I gave another chance to sew for my daughter (but a lot are mistakes from my part, sst, so I am cleaning with these)
    -I reduced at a half the quantity of the chemical in my house. I don’t use anymore 10 products to wash, for clothes not dirty I put only a half of washing products, for washing soap I buy a big liquid quantity and refill, I use vinegar and soda etc.
    -no tv, no cable, minimum internet and minimum mobile
    I did this in the past when we had only one salary in the family. It was best solution to survive ( I had a mortgage, too). I closed the mortgage, we have now 2 salaries but we still live in same eco-friendly mode: and yes, we have now around 15% of the price of a new apartment.

    1. These are such great tips! Thank you for sharing them. I need to work on composting and figuring out how that works in our situation. It’s great that you learned from having only 1 salary and now that you have 2, you continue to live in this eco-friendly and budget-friendly way. Thank you for commenting! 🙂

    1. It really depends on the year and how hard you work it. Make a goal to make next year even better and then do everything in your power to reach that goal – you can do it! 🙂 Thanks for the comment, Kara.

    1. Stick around for more – we have tons of them coming (and tons already up) that can help you be more frugal 🙂 I’m glad this helped – and thanks for the comment, Sonia!
