September 17, 2012: Fill ‘em up!
Keep your tires properly inflated. For every two PSI the tires are under the recommendation, you lose one percent on your gas mileage. Read your owners’ manual or check on inside of your car door (you can usually find the recommended PSI there) to find out what it should be at. Bonus tip: some garages and auto mechanics will check and fill your tires at no charge!
September 10, 2012: Shop around!
It pays to be patient and shop around (and sleep on major financial decisions!) for the best prices. When searching for products like insurance, mortgages, and things around the house be sure to get quotes and pricing from many sources. There are even phone apps that allow you to scan a bar code and see what that product costs at various retail locations nearby. Apps include Red Laser Car Code Scanner and Decide Shopping & Price Predictor.
