When I heard about Fuel Rewards I knew I couldn’t wait to share with you after I had some time to use it myself and see how it worked for my family! It’s completely legit and so easy to use. You are going to LOVE IT!! From now until June 5, you can sign up for the Fuel Rewards Program and save 25 cents per gallon on your first fill up. An additional 3 cents per gallon will be taken off your fuel balance after each fill-up from there on out. One Fuel Rewards member paid a total of 19 cents for 20 gallons worth of fuel, and even if you just saved the guaranteed 3 cents per gallon, that’s still almost a dollar off per tank!

The Fuel Rewards Network™ program offers you real savings at participating Shell stations:

  • For a limited time, new members of the Fuels Rewards Network program can get a 25c/gal sign-up bonus when they join the program.

  • To qualify, you must purchase at least 8 gallons of fuel on your first fill-up using your Fuel Rewards Network Card, while enjoying at least 3c/gal savings. Then, the 25c/gal will be credited to your account for your next fill up. 

You earn 25¢/gal when you refer a friend, and they’ll earn 25¢/gal too.

yard-sale-tips

Jamie Here!  With the weather turning beautiful, I’m getting Yard Sale fever!  As a looong time yard sale pro, here are some ways to save on yard sales and tips to get you the best buys!

Yard Sale shopping is a fun weekend pastime for a frugal bargain hunter!  You never know what you’ll find in a morning’s worth of Yard Sailing… sometimes you’ll come home empty-handed – but your inner optimist will pull you out of bed time and time again for another coffee-fueled expedition.

I’ve been yard-sailing regularly since I was 11, heading out on my bike out early Saturday mornings with my backpack and $2 weekly allowance.  I was forced to stretch that $2 to the max – and so I did – charming old folks out of their vintage clothes & jewelry (I have a vintage problem…) and talking tight-fisted children out of Barbie collections.

In my adult life, I’ve clothed myself and my family with yard sale finds, furnished parts of my home, and even stocked my Gift-Closet with yard sale treasures.  If you’re a little green to yard-sailing, or maybe just rusty, here are some tips I’ve learned to help you make the most of a Saturday morning!
