E-coupon app SavingStar (www.savingstar.com) gives you coupons for stuff you need and want (diapers, soup, snacks) at your favorite grocery and drugstores. You pay the normal price in the store, and the savings from the coupons you choose add up inside the app. Once you reach $5, you can choose to put the savings in your bank account, redeem them for an Amazon gift card or donate them to charity. Think of it as a modern, and more fun, version of the spare change jar.
The Catch: Don’t get lured into buying stuff you don’t need to “save” money. That’s still spending money.
