Love to save money? Try the Ibotta app!

Personally, I suck at trying to save money at the grocery store.  I’ve tried to cut coupons and do research on stores for sales but it never really works for me.  I lose the coupons or forget about them completely.  

But now with the Ibotta app on my Iphone, I actually saved money at the grocery store!  

Ibotta, available also on Android, is a great app that gives you money back on items that you really use like, toilet paper, foods, diapers and more.  The more you shop with it the more personalized it gets since the app gives you the option to “Thumbs up” or “Thumbs down” and offer.  By doing this the app “learns” what you need and don’t need and customizes your offers.  

Each item offered gives you the option to gain from .75 cents to up to $2.00 on an item.  To gain your discounts, you take a poll, share on Facebook or learn some trivia.  With each option you choose it credits you an amount.  For example. if you use Colgate Optic White toothpaste you get .25 for learning trivia, .25 for taking a poll, and .50 for sharing on Facebook for a total of $1.00 back on your purchase. 

Once your done shopping, scan the receipt, choose the store you shopped at and the app will find the items you purchased that match up and credit it to your Ibotta account.  Once you’ve reached $20 you can cash out and have the money sent to you.

Personally, I love the fact that I don’t have to carry coupons.  I ran to Walmart to pick up some cereal for the family and ended up making $2.00 back.  It may not seem like a lot but for my first time I thought it was pretty neat.

So, download the app and start making money back!

Pride Prom 2012

April 21st, 2012 marked the 5th Annual Pride Prom in Evansville, IN hosted by the TriState Alliance.  With more people attending this year than in any other year this prom was made for those who didnot go to their prom for feeling they were excluded and not accepted because of their choice of lifestyle.  Straight allys were in attendance as well and made for a magnificent evening with an amazing crowd of people.  This was my first attendance and I sure hope it won’t be my last!

To order any additional pictures just send the picture number with form of payment (mail or paypal) to chrism.photography@ymail.com as well as mailing address.  Choose from 8 wallets, (4) 3×5, (2) 4×6, (2) 5×7 or (1) 8×10 for $5.00 a piece.  Please inquiry about additional sizes if needed.  I also offer key chains, dog tags, pins, magnets, car flags, coffee mugs and iphone covers.  Email me for pricing.

Thanks so much for the opportunity and for those that are interested I am looking for future models (TFP) for projects in the future possibly including an expo on YOUTUBE vs SOCIETY and the 48HR Project!

Senior sitting: Cain (SPS GCHS 2012)

Senior Sitting: Cain

What a glorious day! I did my first senior sitting of the Class of 2012 for Graves County High School. Cain was a blast to work with and even though he had to be egged to smile :) he made for an amazing session. The heat was ridiculous today but we toughed it through and got some really great pics! His mom Julie had some really cool ideas and I did (hopefully!!) them as she requested. I may be going to her for some ideas in the future. Can’t forget to thank Becca for her beautiful chalk drawing that we used for some of the pics. I can’t wait to get to proofing and get them posted. Once they’re done he’ll be my newest SPS for Graves County High School. Exciting times ahead!
