"Where We Discuss Finance in About the Time it Takes to Make a Bag of Popcorn"

My Favorite Resources

Budgeting Tools

Mint has been my go to budget tool for years.  There are two main reasons why I chose to stick with Mint.  First, it’s free!  There are no monthly subscriptions, no hidden fees or weird up-sell.  It’s just a really solid free service.  Second, Mint is owned by Intuit, maker of TurboTax, a widely used & trusted tax preparation software.  I use TurboTax as well & figure if I can trust them with my tax data, I can trust them with my budget details.


Cash Back Apps and Sites

Ebates has been my go to cash back site for years.  It’s a super simple to use too.  All you have to do is visit Ebates.com, search for the website where you would like to make a purchase (Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, etc…), & then you will be instantly directed to their site where you will receive a percentage of your eligible purchase back in cash.  If you are new to Ebates, Click Here to receive a $10 bonus!


One of the tools mentioned in episode 049 to help you reach your travel goals quicker was Dosh.  You can earn up to 10% cash back at 1,000s of stores & restaurants when you add a debit or credit card to your account.  Plus you will receive a nice bonus when you sign up.  Click here to get started!


Side Hustle Ideas

After finishing up the Popcorn Finance Side Hustle Series I thought it would be a good idea to add a couple of my favorite side hustle platforms to the resource page.


DoorDash was one of the side hustles that really helped me put a dent in our credit card debt.  DoorDash is an on demand food delivery service similar to Postmates & Uber Eats. As a driver you pick up food orders & deliver them to customers.  The great thing is that you can turn the app on & work whenever you want with no minimum hours required.

Working just a few hours a handful of days each week I was able to earn an extra $200 a week all on my own schedule.  Click Here to sign up & receive a special sign up bonus!


I have been selling on eBay for years now.  I’ve sold everything from iPads to stuffed Angry Birds toys.  I never really went all in a made a business of it, but I would sell a few items here & there when the opportunity presented itself.  eBay is a great way to get rid of a few things around your home or make a nice side income if you can put a little more time in to it.

I am by no means an expert at the world of eBay selling.  If you are thinking about getting serious I would recommend you check out a couple of the people below.
