Recommendations

This resource page is to help you quickly and easily find the services, products, and companies that I use, love and know offer great value. You can save hundreds of dollars in just one place!

Disclosure: There are some affiliate links below, but these are all products I highly recommend. I won’t put anything on this page that I haven’t verified and/or personally used.


We are all about saving money as well as having a life. If there are things you just can’t give up, at least buy them at a discount. Groupon offer deals of up to 90% off on holidays, restaurants, bars, hairdressers, adventure activities, electronics, fashion, home furnishings and more!

 

Similar to Groupon, Living Social offer discounts on activities in your city, or great when travelling. They also have a page dedicated to escapes where you can find reasonably priced travel, a must when holidays are a part of a frugal budget.

 

 


I’ve spoken before about why I love the Entertainment Book. It is a coupon cutters dream offering thousands of valuable vouchers with discounts and 2-for-1 offers for many of the best restaurants, cafés, museums, attractions, accommodation, flights, shopping and much more! Find a local charity you want to support here.

 

 


My preferred way to travel for a weekend away or more long term is to stay in rentals through AirBnB (this link will give you $50 off your first stay). You can rent a bed, a room, or an entire apartment, giving you the flexibility to stay within your budget and possibly get some good tips from locals. Rates are often cheaper than a hotel and you will usually have access to a kitchen, a bonus you won’t get in a hotel room, keeping costs down even more.

 

Rewards Central is where you can earn free CASH back just for spending how you normally would online. All you do is click on a store that you want to shop through (they have over 150 stores to choose from such as Jeanswest, David Jones, Harvey Norman etc.) and shop how you would normally. Rewards Central makes a commission for referring you to the stores you shop at and they give you some of that money back as a thank you. You can also complete surveys and participate in other online activities to earn more points to increase your payouts.
