We are in the age of cell phone. Almost every one had one, we carry them with us everywhere and they cost a fortune! Now lets get some of that money back by putting them to work for us! There are many apps that will save you money (or make you money!) These money saving phone apps will help you save money on groceries, gas, atm fees, and more!
These apps are all free to use but some do have pro version that you can pay for. I have the free version of them since I don't like to pay money if I don't have to!

I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
