Feeding the Hungry

There’s an app out there that can take the guilt away from going out to eat. Although you have to apply for it, once downloaded you have the opportunity of reviewing restaurants in your area. Upon doing so, a meal gets sent to someone in need via organizations like No Kid Hungry. The app is called Servy:

On a side note, the CEO & Co-Founder  of this company is awesome. Occasionally he’ll send stories and nice emails. This personal element adds to the feeling of being part of a community. Please be mindful, Servy is a rather new company, and has yet to be able to offer reimbursement to everyone who performs shopping evaluations. However, you can always pay attention to your receipts. Did you know many corporate chains will give you free entrees, side items, and/ or drinks if you submit a review for them as well? By doing so, I got four entrees and an appetizer for $11.80 at Panda Express. The excursion fed me, a friend of mine, and one of the many hungry Americans that couldn’t afford the meal at the time.

As a member of Mystery Shopping Providers Association: North America, I also found Servy to be a wonderful self-training tool. I don’t know about you, but sometimes the “jitters” overcome me when starting a new job. Through Servy, I realized that finding apps similar to job functions is a great way to refine professional skills, and with Servy you also get to help someone while doing so. How can you beat that!

Neighborhood Voyages

One of the things people tend to take for granted when they have readily available income, is the psychological relief that being able to travel gives a them. Is there anything a person can do to attain this same sort of release in their own backyard? What if you live far from a major metropolitan area?

Checkout 51 is a rather new app for me. I’ve only used it twice so far, because I first thought it was for parents. There are a ton of deals on there for diapers and other such supplies.

Well, I don’t have kids, and may not if things don’t turn around. In fact, anything baby related actually makes me a little upset. Regardless, like an expecting mamma, I get my cravings too; and, sometimes these urges can be a catalyst for awesomeness. In fact, it was the desire for chocolate that resulted in the exploring of Checkout 51 to its entirety.

Around midnight, I decided to give in and follow an Ibotta inspired craving for Enjoy Life cookies, but the suckers are like $1,000 a box (or, might as well be.) Yet, the desire was strong, so I gave in. While leaving the store, I decided to give Checkout 51 another look. Lo-and-behold, there was a listing for Enjoy Life cookies there too for $1 cash back.
Discovering this deal was like discovering the Holy Grail. With the two apps together, I got more than half off the entire box. Then I realized one of the unspoken beauties of money-saving with coupons, discounts, and rebates. In addition to a nice surprise, you can use them for scavenger hunts.

For example, when I have money, I’m brand loyal like you wouldn’t believe. Yet, sometimes I need something and just don’t have enough for that ideal product. Enter one of the useful beauties of Checkout 51. When the discover bug hits, I can just open up the app, look for something I need, and explore a new brand at a discounted price. Who knows, maybe I’ll even find one to sway me.

Now, it’s your turn. Voyage to the depths of your phone, and get yourself some snacks!

The Game of Pocket Mending

Poverty is a bummer. There’s nothing fun about having to worry about if you can eat, or if you’ll have enough money for gas to go to work. Oh, and what about that “life-changing” interview that requires professional attire. Well, if you haven’t already sold your suit, I guess you’re in luck! Heck, what about bus fare! Now, that’s not cool.

During my lifetime, I have literally known persons from all income brackets. In addition, there have been several that have gone from riches to rags overnight. Upon reflection, it’s apparent that a friend would have been the best remedy. Yet, what do “friends” talk about when one person is on a jet to Hawaii and the other is sleeping in a car at Walmart?

Money-saving, and generating, apps are like an adult game that everyone can share. It seems like there are ones for everyone; and, the benefits lead to discounted food, cheaper transportation, and tax deductions. Finally there’s also a way people can help one another without even having to give a dime, or have their friend lose his or her autonomy! Now, what’s the excuse for not being a friend? Well, if you keep reading, I’ll tell you. Perhaps I’ll be able to offer some solutions to this predicament too.

In the meantime, since food is something everyone needs, why not start your app adventure with Ibotta:
