Featured Brag: $avvy$hopper Makes Extra Money To Get FREE Groceries


While we all try to reduce our grocery bill, I am sure most of us spend more than we would like to.  $avvy$hopper earns extra money in her spare time on ClixSense which she puts towards her groceries.  There are lots of sites where you can make an extra few dollars a month, through surveys, watching videos, special offers, tasks and more.  We have a thread for the most reliable ones in this SC forum.  Try a few and see what works for you.  I personally make over $25 a month on swagbucks which I cash out for paypal and can use for anything I want.

Click here to read $avvy$hopper’s brag where she got all of the food above (and a KitKat for her special little helper) for $13.11 and had cashed out her online earnings for around the same.

Did you know you can get paid if we feature your brag on the blog?  Check out the details here.

    Those sites are tricky in the fact that if they have you fulfill trials, you need to make sure you cancel before they start charging you. Also, I am wary of online tasks to “earn” as they sometimes decide to install things onto your computer (including things like coupon toolbars) which can be very harmful to the machine, affect performance, etc.) I’ve seen it all too often with those who come into tech support with infections.

      Eric, I am just careful about what I add, I check out the site first before clicking. Cancel it if it wants to install anything I don’t know and never do trials etc that require a credit card unless it is something I would sign up for anyway. But there are plenty of survey companies too without any of the issues

    mmm, hamburger helper, old meat, and fish from China. how can you go wrong?!

    you know how much healthy stuff you can purchase for $13?

    • FallenPixels says:

      honeydoo, I often shop at several stores over the week. You see my groceries in one, it can be all unhealthy, see me at the farmers market – different story.

    There’s nothing nutritious, wholesome, and healthy about Betty Crocker’s Helper meals, General Mills needs to switch to whole wheat or whole grain and reduce the sodium intake by at least 50% and stop adding monosodium glutemate in their seasoning powder.

    The only reason to get that HH is for the coupon, probably healthier to eat the box instead. I’ve earned over $100 so far from sites similar to Clixsense this year.

    Not to sound like a total dolt — but what is Hamburger Helper?

    • FallenPixels says:

      A box of dry pasta with a pack of dehydrated sauce
      It comes with a $3 coupon for ground beef

    who cares what she buys for groceries? how do we know she doesn’t cook up the meat the day she bought it at a discount or freezes it? There’s nothing wrong with doing either of those things and is perfectly safe….it’s not “OLD” meat because it’s Best Before date is that day, the day in which it’s marked down…and how do you know she isn’t a busy mom that uses HH once in a blue moon? I can bet every person that is slamming her with nasty comments has something unhealthy in their own cupboards at home, or has eaten at a fast food restaurant etc…maybe she donates the HH to the food bank and just cuts out the coupon…

    Whoa there Sandra! Although we all undoubtedly have made poor food choices based on the contents of our cupboards, this image – chosen to represent this article – conveys a message. Arguably, not a healthy one. As for donating to the Food Bank, having volunteered there, I can say that the organization welcomes all donations, But I personally was troubled by the number of foods given with little to no nutritional value. Generous, yes, but this does little to assist in providing the needy with the healthy diet we all deserve.

      I would guess that none of us would like one single shop to be analyzed like this, this blog is about the deals she got and how she got them. Most of us can’t save on fruits & veggies etc, they are what they are and there are brags of far worse choices than this.
      As I said before, you could see me in one store picking up unhealthy deals, but every other store I go to that week would be much more nutritious, most couponers shop at several stores in a week to get the best deals.

    Just wow, at these comments. 🙁

  9. nisiepie says:

    This looks a lot healthier than most shopping carts I see on any given day while shopping.

    Great job on the great deals! 🙂

    Thanks for the feedback, FallenPixels. Never had it (obviously) but always wondered!
