Every year DH buys Miracle Gro soil and for the past few years there has been a rebate. I always send it in and this year we realized $16 ($2 a bag). Usually the rebate takes a couple of months, but we received it in less than a month. We deposited the check in our Christmas Club account.

Lowe's has been having 11% rebate too. When we purchased the new storm door, I submitted the rebate and we received a small rebate back. We used it to buy some plants. When I bought the plants, it said they had the rebate going again so I submitted it. It won't be much, but I figure it is found money.

I continue to use Ibotta, but sadly, so much of the stuff we buy isn't something they give cash back on. I refuse to buy something just to get the rebate. But, I'm up to over $20 and my lifetime amount is over $80, so even at a dime or quarter at a time, it adds up. I guess we aren't big shoppers. I see the TV ads for Ebates and realize it wouldn't do us much good. I don't buy much online and what I do, is a specific product that probably wouldn't give us a rebate.

And, the other day I found a nickel in the parking lot!

    I've been finding change out near the track where I walk. There's a parking lot and a picnic shelter nearby where I have also found change. I use Ibotta too, and it is slow going, but I'm not going to turn down a little bit that does add up. My lifetime amount is $152.67. I do find that sometimes the best rebates on Ibotta are on cleaning products or the mousse I use on my hair!

    I found a penny the other day, which brought my total to $101.07! I started counting in 2011. My grandson is cheering for me to get to $200.
