Save Time and Money Tips..


Never drive to a particular gas station because it has the cheapest gas. Always get gasoline at the nearest gas station.  Doesn’t make sense as you will more spend more money driving which often negates saving.

To heat your room during the cold and nights use an oil-filled radiator heater.  Turn your home heater down approximately 4-5 degrees or turn it off if you plan on staying in one room.  These heaters are perfectly safe, pet friendly, and they provide adequate heat as you sleep overnight.  Generally they’re safe to leave on but I would never recommend leaving any heater on.  Of all heaters this one is safer than many.  They typically take some time to heat large, open spaces but they work. After your room has reached the desired temperature you can turn on your ceiling fan which will disperse the hot air because it rises.  Feels great.  Many oil-filled heaters have knock over, tilt features that will shut them off if the event occurs.

When you leave home always carry a water bottle or enough of some liquid to satisfy your thirst throughout the day.  Why?  If you frequent fast food restaurants or dine-in eateries drinks often cost two dollars with the exception of water; typically free.  Instead of paying $1.79 to $2.00 for a cup of tea or soda make your own, bring it to wherever you are and you will never pay an additional amount + tax for something you can do for pennies on the dollar.  I use Mio drops to sweeten water with tea flavor.  There are many brands with various flavors at your local grocer.

Peanut Butter Jelly Time!  Yes peanut butter and jelly can save you type and money. Why?  Well, we have often associated peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with our childhood, lunch rooms, and adolescent behavior but peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are more healthy than not providing adequate nutrients to sustain you for a couple of hours.  Take one in the car as you complete your business throughout the day.  A peanut butter and jelly sandwich shouldn’t be a substitute for a full-course meal but it does the trick every time buying you a couple of hours.

I’ll add more tips later throughout the year. Trae
