RecommendedEverybody has to buy stuff eventually. See what stuff we like to buy so our money goes to its best use. Picky Pinchers hate waste!
As Picky people, we’re pretty particular about our products! Here we’ve compiled a list of just a few of our favorite products and services for you to check out.
These are affiliate links, but we personally use and recommend all of these products (why not support the blog with them, though?). It’s my goal to make the blog display-ad free as soon as possible, so if you like what you read and don’t want the site slowed down by ads, please consider the below products.
If you’d like more information or detail on the below products, shoot us an email at pickypinchers(at)gmail(dot)com and we’ll be happy to help out!
Better Money Management
Personal Capital is a free app that tracks your money all in one place. I love that I can see my bank accounts, debts, and even investments. It lets me track my net worth so I can see how far along I am on the road to FIRE. Woop woop!
I’ve been using MyFreezEasy for a while now and I absolutely love it. While I try to take freezer meal planning into my own hands, MyFreezEasy takes a lot of the stress out of meal planning.
MyFreezEasy includes everything you need to both cook dinner and batch cook for freezer meals. I like the shopping lists, freezer-friendly storage instructions, and step-by-step guides for bulk cooking different meals at once.
Give it a try if you’re trying to jazz up your meals!
We recommend Bluehost for your hosting needs.
In fact, Picky Pinchers is hosted on Bluehost, so we’re quite happy with them! If you’d like to set up a blog, check out our guide using Bluehost with their super-low $3.95/mo plan. The price is usually $7.99/mo for their basic package, but if you go through my link you can get a pretty sweet discount!
As a person who does marketing professionally, I thought I knew everything there was to know about marketing. I tried to make income from my blog using my own cobbled-together strategy, but it flopped every time. Exasperated, I signed up for the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing course.
It runs about $200 (less if there’s a coupon!), but every penny was worth it. I’ve been able to overhaul my blog’s monetization–and improve it in other ways, too. If you want to get serious about making some side money off your blog, I really recommend this course.
Pinterest is all the rage. It’s fun to surf on the site for new recipes and craft projects, but it’s also a great way to promote your blog. Tailwind is an app that you use to schedule Pinterest posts. And that means more time for you to save the world.
We both use the Nexus 5X with Google Fi for our phone service. I’ve dropped my phone probably eleventy-bajillion times and the damn thing still works like a charm!
Check out my complete review of Google FI here. I really do recommend signing up with them; we’re only paying a quarter of what we used to pay for cell service. If you sign up with this referral link, you’ll get a $20 credit to your account. So it’s worth checking out, no?
Roku is the reason we spend so little on entertainment nowadays. Roku is a nifty little device that allows us to stream from Netflix, Sling TV, YouTube, Hulu, and more. We used to hook up our computers to our TV with HDMI cables, which was annoying.
We use our Roku daily and I can’t imagine watching shows or TV without it. If you’re looking to cut cable, check out Roku.
