Wear It for FREE!

Saw this on King of Queens and heard of people doing it anyway.
And it works!
You buy a suit or whatever and wear it before it's time to return it.
Keep the tags attached or just bring them back with the return.
(Tags DO fall off you know!)
This also works with clothing you order thru the mail.

Me? I have to wash everything 1st before I wear it but that's just me.
I've returned things after washing them & never had a problem.
I think trying clothes on and wearing them is the same thing.
So I have no qualms doing this. Saves $$ if you need a new outfit for a special occasion.
You needn't spend anything on it if you don't think you'll ever wear it again
or it's just too expensive.
Hey, if the stores allow it why not take advantage of it?

Sample This!


Not much money in your pocket but it's cold outside?
Want some tasty hot soup and crackers?
By the time you're done with it you won't need to buy any!

I do this at QuickCheck & WaWa all the time!
Great way to save money and still get warm in the winter!
Try it at ANY food/drink place!
No point paying for something you don't like!
So try it first - FOR FREE!

Buy vs. Lease

Don't want a large down payment on a new car?
There's little to NO MONEY DOWN or you could use your trade-in
to help keep the 1st payment low.
And there's always coupons or deals going on in a dealership.
(Like FREE oil changes for those 3 years & complimentary key chains, etc.)
You get a 3 year lease with usually 12 to 15,000 miles allowed.
You are also allowed $500 to $1500 worth of damage.
If you want to buy it at the end of the 3 years you can,
although you have to pay the balance which is usually a few thousand dollars.
You'd be warrenteed and you'd have ANOTHER new car!

*Be sure to bring it back nice & clean! You get kudos for that & a good reputation with the dealership for doing so!
Vacumn it out and take it through the car wash. You'll be glad you did!

*I've leased 3 times & I'd do it again!

Gas Saving Mentality

With the high price of gas today we all need to know how to save money on it.
Here's some hints - 

Try to fill your tank only once a week and use "regular" if you can.

Run all of your errands in a big circle and on the same day if possible.

If the quickest way to get to your job is the highway every morning and it's always bumper-to-bumper traffic, why not leave 15 minutes early and leave your job 15 minutes later. You'd be surprised how much less traffic there might be at that time!
OR take the scenic route! It may take you a few minutes longer to get there but at least you wouldn't be in traffic and you could enjoy the ride with much less stress!

And if at all possible, get a 4-cyclinder car because it is SO MUCH BETTER on gas!
(Do you really NEED an SUV or a big ole' truck or a luxury gas-eater? Think about it!)

Senior Discounts - Just Ask!

Are you over 50? 55? 60?
Then you can get a lot of discounts on food, hotels, car repairs
or pretty much anything!
JUST ASK! And save some more money!

It's Cheaper to Wait!

Saw a great new outfit? Want it NOW?!
It's cheaper to wait! Look at it this way:
If you buy it now you'll be paying full price.
If you wait a couple weeks, you'll get it ON SALE!

And who doesn't want something CHEAPER!?
And it doesn't mean YOU'RE cheap.
It means you're SMART! You know how to save
and still get what you want!

When you walk into a store or go on-line to shop,
head right for the CLEARANCE section.
You'll no doubt find more for your money & instead of
paying full price for only one outfit pay LESS for MORE outfits!
You can look over the new stuff that's full price NOW and
come back for it LATER when it's on SALE!

I do it every time & always come out the winner!
