FRUGAL BONUS:

Take care of your car and it will take care of you.  Make sure you get your oil changed as recommended by the automobile manufacturer, add reputable additives to your gas, place spot mirrors on your outside side mirrors to reduce blind spots.

If you are in the market for a “new to you” car, consider finding a car that is rather dirty and dinged up.  The price may be as little as 50% the market value.  Get some deodorizer for the vents, windex wipes, armor all wipes, floor mats, a nice car wash, fluids, gas treatment  — and you are ready to go!

Since grass-cutting season is here, you should consider how your lawn will be taken care of this year.  If you want to hire someone, you should do it quickly since many of the better people fill up their schedules early.  If you are doing it yourself, start shopping sales at home improvement stores, farm and feed stores.  If you have a smaller yard, you may consider a less expensive electric weed eater.

If you need repairs between your bricks, consider buying mortar repair before you call a bricklayer.

Do you own a car that has a microchip in the key?  The dealer will probably tell you that you will need to pay something like $500 for a new key.  Well, if you do some research online and also talk with local larger locksmiths, you can save hundreds of dollars.  You can normally find a shell of the key (or get a valet key) and have the dealer program it.  Now with a valet key, you can’t open the trunk directly, but it could be fine for your needs.  Sometimes, if you own a Lexus, Infinity, Acura, etc. you can get another dealer in town to do this for less money (ie, Toyota, Nissan, Honda – respectively).

Does your child play sports?  Do some research online for deals on sports equipment.  Epic Sports, Eastbay, Amazon – just to name a few.  There are other sites that specialize in a particular sport.  You will save money and will have a much better selection.  Local stores that specialize in a certain sport sometimes have better prices on some items.  It will pay off to do your research – maybe even online.

Is it time for new eyeglasses?  Eyeglass World has locations in several parts of the country.  They offer a 2 pair for $78 special, accept many vision insurance plans, and offer same day service.

Make sure to shop around for your prescriptions.  Sometimes, small local pharmacies or grocery stores have the best prices.  Check out Wal*Mart and K*Mart as well.  Sometimes, there will be a transfer prescription special – $25 gift card or something along those lines.
