New Data reported in The New York Post finds that CUTTING THE CORD DOES NOT SAVE YOU MONEY …here’s the report

There’s a recent report by a colonist in the New York Post that stated that cutting the cord will not save you as much money as what you think. In the past the price could save you a lot of money but now with the additional costs of programming it could actually cost you more money to buy your packages individually than it would be to get a bundle deal. Can you believe that?

I’m going to give you the link to the report that was reported in FIERCE CABLE Magazine so that you can read it for yourself here’s the link: Cord Cutting PRICIER than keeping Cable…

Keep in mind that a “bundle” still may be your best deal and “unbundling” can cause your costs to actually go up when you cut certain services.

5 Ways to WIN when Buying a New Cellphone…Don’t Purchase One Before Reading This!

As CELL phone companies and providers like Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, Straight Talk, Boost Mobile, Xfinity Mobile and an ever-growing list of others compete for our business, the prices that we pay for service and coverage continually goes lower and lower. This competition among them for our dollars works to our advantage. Now just about all the providers offer a unlimited data plan…but not all of them have the same definition of unlimited. Some of the plans aren’t “truly unlimited”. Some offer 4-5 gb, 8 gb and some offer up to 23-32 gb before slowing down the speeds of your data plan. This can affect your true overall costs.

This post contains affiliate links.

Determining your usage is very important so that you can choose the best company to fit your individual needs. Keep in mind that not all the companies offer the same coverage areas. 

Make sure that you’re not lured in by the bottom of the barrel prices only to  the find that you can’t use phone and get data when and where you need it. They are suffering from “a race to the bottom” price wise and they have to recoup their costs somehow. Should you buy the insurance on the phone? This may depend on the overall cost of the phone. With prices approaching $800 – $1000 or more it may make sense in certain cases. Find out what the replacement deductible would be in case of a claim and decide accordingly.

Be careful of unwanted up-charges that you may not want or need added after you leave. I recently had to replace my cellphone and hours after my transaction…I was notified that I had signed up for a service that I hadn’t agreed to which would add $10 to my monthly amount…I hadn’t signed up for the service at all. Of course it will get cancelled. So make sure that you are monitoring your monthly bills for errors or fraudulent charges. What about buying your phone outright? This may be a more practical option for some. What about the thought of buying a QUALITY UNLOCKED PHONE?

Make sure that you check the battery life of your new phone and prepare for your long periods of being away by having a high quality backup battery pack for emergencies.

What about purchasing add-ons for your new cellphone that are always offered at the time if purchase? The prices at the stores can be astronomical as they are a very high markup. A better less expensive route is to get your own cell phone accessories as soon as you leave and get them shipped free and quickly. The savings can be amazing. My wife and I tried this. We saved over $20+ using this method on a recent purchase of a new phone. That money saved was used on something more fun. Every dollar saved…us a dollar earned.

How to Drive / Operate Your VEHICLE For Less

Owning and driving a car can be very expensive. You have insurance costs, maintenance, tires, oil changes, deductibles in case of an accident and the list goes on and on…and on. What are some things that you can do to keep your calls under control? Here a couple quick tips that I’ve compiled to help you lower your overall operating cost.

This post contains Amazon affiliate links that help us provide free money-saving content to you…it costs you no extra to use them…thanks in advance…see our Disclaimer for more information.

  • Add ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE / TOWING  to your INSURANCE POLICY for a couple dollars a year instead of paying hundred’s of dollars for emergency vehicle coverage with companies like AAA.
  • Keeping your TIRES rotated, balanced, and your wheels aligned extends the life of your tires reducing your annual cost of ownership. Buying your tires online can save you considerably in expense and have them mounted / balanced and installed at a shop. Check the prices…you might be amazed. Some sizes maybe as much as one half off the normal retail price.
  • Shop INSURANCE CARRIERS every couple of years and let the agent know that you are shopping for the best coverage at the lowest prices and dedicated to keeping your costs as low as possible. Ask what can they do to help you achieve that goal. They will usually comply if they think they will lose a customer. Sometimes LOYALTY to one company could end up costing you more. So be flexible and willing to change to save money.
  •  INDEPENDENT INSURANCE BROKERS can also be invaluable because they can search several companies at the same time and build a policy specific to you and offer you the lowest price custom fit for your individual needs.
  • If you financed your vehicle and have recently IMPROVED YOUR CREDIT SCORE, refinancing could put some money back in your pocket and save you hundreds, maybe even thousands each year. Review: How to Fix Your Credit Score…credit repair
  • Use the lowest grade of gas that your vehicle manual recommended. Most cars can operate efficiently using 87 octane. It hasn’t been showed to increase gas mileage or other benefits by using higher octaves and can save you $.10 – $.30 per gallon. Could really add up over the course of a year.
  • Taking a state approved defensive driving course could yield you  5-10% annual discount on you car insurance policy. If you have a clean driving record the savings can be even higher 10-15%. (Teenagers and new drivers can take this course as well to offset the additional costs of adding a new driver). Check with your insurance company for actual discounts.
  • ALWAYS BE FLEXIBLE…never wanting to change is a sure way to pay more for anything. Everything changes. ADAPT.

What you need to know BEFORE you get a NEW PUPPY

2017-07-14 18.55.03
Toy Poodle Puppy- “Sapphire”

If you are on the hunt for a new puppy you will have many choices. How will you find the right type for your family? Did it come from a good breeder? Is it full blooded…and the list goes on and on. One thing that you will find out quickly is that buying a puppy can be very expensive. They can go anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to several thousand per puppy, so you want to make sure that you are getting one that is healthy and well breed.

Searching for a specific breed of dog it can get very expensive and the waters are clouded with scammers out there…so be very careful.

BE CAREFUL : Craigslist and other sites that offer animals are ripe with criminals that want to take advantage of your desire for a pet. They may want to get a “deposit” and say that they are out of town / country or want you to wire money via western union. Don’t do it! Keep in mind that the amounts of money are large so make sure that you do your “due diligence” when it comes to who you get your pet from. Are they reputable? Do they have a website? Do they breed animals for a living, or did their pets just have a couple of puppies and they can’t take care of them? How long have they been doing it? Ask lots of questions. Finding out their motivation can help you make a wise decision when purchasing a “new family member”. Go with your gut feeling and ask for several referrals. You could also ask friends where they got their pets from. Normally they know, or know of someone offering the same kind of pet they have.

Of course you could go to your local rescue shelter to see what “eager to be adopted deserving pets” they have available.

Educate yourself now on how to take care of your new puppy by reading and doing your research. What kind of dog food will they eat? Where can I find the best deals on my puppy supplies? What kind of dog bed is the best? What about crates and kennels for your new puppy?What veterinarian will they go to? Where do you start?

Here’s my recommendation : “How to house train and potty train ANY dog…in less than a week” —Click Here!

Having a new puppy can be costly…make sure you consider some of the awesome ways to make some extra money.

This is a REPOST of Part 1 of this topic…because it is so important.

Home Security Tips That BURGLARS Don’t Want You to Know…part 1

Screenshot_2017-07-07-15-11-26

Everyone today is concerned about their security and that of their family. After all you want to go to work, come home and you want to relax in a safe secure environment. Unfortunately, there are those out there that want to come into your home and take the things that you have worked hard for. However, if you have ever experienced a burglary, you know that material possessions aren’t the only thing that gets taken…they can take your peace of mind. That is more valuable than anything that they can take from you. Not feeling secure in your own home makes you want to leave and move to another place where you can feel safe and secure. Keep in mind that if you have to file a claim of a burglary there is usually a deductible that can be $500-$1000 or more before they will pay. So how to avoid this from happening to you is really a very good money-saving tip. Make sure that you share this with everyone you love as you will see how serious this topic can be.

This post contains Amazon affiliate links that help us provide free money-saving content to you…it costs you no extra to use them…thanks in advance…see our Disclaimer for more information.

Imagine for a minute that you are a burglar…would you choose your house?  You have no yard signs or stickers on your windows. You have no solar motion detector sensor lights. There is nothing at your home during the day / night indicating that someone is at home. There is no barking dog. Your home has no alarm system. Now think about what a “sitting duck” you would be if this description fit your home. It’s just a matter of time before someone may try to burglarize your home. Remember that the more roadblocks to entering your home that you can put up, the greater chance you have of keeping your home secure and burglary free. But by the same token, the less things that you have blocking them the greater your chance becomes of becoming a statistic. Also, keep in mind that just because you have never been burglarized or been a target before doesn’t mean that you can’t become one. As an example…there were 10,000 people killed last year…that had never died before. It’s that serious!

Things can be replaced…that’s the purpose of insurance. So this post is about keeping you and your family safe and secure and allowing them to feel good in their own home as long as you choose to live there. Keep in mind some say that if a burglar wants to get into your house they can usually do so, but there are some things that you can do to deter them from trying to get into your home, or even choosing your’s in the first place. Part 1 is all about keeping burglars on the outside of your house and not allowing them to enter your home. Family members could be on the inside and this makes it more important to take proactive action to protect them. Statistics show that if a burglar comes into your home and someone is there especially a woman…it greatly increases the chances that an assault could take place. Keep them out of your house at all costs!

One of the first things to remember is that burglars don’t like anything that brings attention to them, so we are going to get started talking about lighting. Proper lighting especially at night is very important to keeping the burglars on the outside of your home. I highly recommend money-saving solar motion detector lights . The solar saves you money and the motion detection puts light on the subject when detected. The benefits can be amazing. They light up all areas of the outside of your home long before a burglar can get close to a door or a window if they are aimed correctly. The cost is only the initial and the sun renews the batteries and doesn’t cost you any electricity to maintain (saving you money on your electrical bill). Make sure to put them up high on each corner of your home and make sure that they completely light up an area at night if someone comes close to your home. This item alone could keep a burglar from coming into your home, thus making your family more secure.

See the Best Solar Outdoor Motion Lighting On Amazon…CLICK HERE

If you have a driveway you can also add a driveway motion sensor to alert you that someone is coming towards your home. This can be invaluable to you so that you aren’t caught off guard if visitors or someone with ill intent comes in your homes direction.

When you are away you want to leave on some lights or add a lamp timer to make it look as if someone is at home. This acts as a deterrent to a burglar as well. Making the home look occupied is always a good idea even during the day when most burglaries take place.

If you are a single woman or elderly person living alone you want to make the front door look as if there is a big man living there. Go to the Goodwill or other thrift store, buy and put the biggest boots that you can find at the front door. You want to give the appearance that some “big burly guy” lives there. This also can be a deterrent to a criminal so that they won’t think that your home will be “easy pickens”…easy to rob.

Part 2 is coming next so stay tuned as I will show you just how easy it is for a thief to get into your home…you won’t believe it (even though you have deadbolts on your doors). Hint: replace your locks with “bump proof deadbolts”. Make sure to subscribe to this blog for more home security money-saving tips are coming.

So before we go ask yourself…when is the best time to protect your home and family-before something happens or after something happens?

How to Save Money on your DRY CLEANING

Screenshot_2017-06-26-22-04-32

You’ll never get a second chance to make a first impression. It goes without saying that we are all judged by how we look and what we wear…either for the good of for the bad. The cost of obtaining quality clothing is getting higher and so is the cost of MAINTAINING those clothes. Here’s some things that you need to know to keep them looking good and get the best deals on your dry cleaning…so you won’t be “taken to the cleaners”. 

This post may contain affiliate links (this costs you nothing and helps us to bring you free information…see our Disclaimer for more information).

First thing is to shop around for the best prices on the items that you regularly take to the cleaners. The prices can vary widely based on the item. It has been found that certain cleaners charge more for some items and less for others, make it work to your advantage in order to save the most money on the items you clean.

Save your items and bundle for the best prices. The more that you take the greater the discount. Usually you can get at least 10% off the posted prices by simply asking for a discount when you bring in a “bundle”.

Another Secret: most of the items that you are taking to the dry cleaners can be washed by you at home using either Woolite or  At home Dry Cleaning Kits. This can result in amazing savings to you and help you keep your clothes longer. Dry cleaners use chemicals to “dry clean” the items but items like shirts are “laundered” in regular water, which is exactly what you can do. If you decide to wash your items at home, you can later take those items to the cleaners to be pressed only. This alone could cut the cost of having a crisp shirt in half or more.

If you decide to wash and press your shirts or items at home it is very important to take them out after being washed and iron them while wet. This is what they do at the dry cleaners. The difference is they use commercial irons. So you want to invest in a high quality iron. Make sure not to put your freshly washed items on wire hangers as this could leave stains on the shirts or the item. Use wood or plastic hangers. If you go this route you will want to use a good stain remover especially on the neck area known for “ring around the collar” or other vulnerable areas of the clothing.

One of the best things that you can do to keep your clothes looking wrinkle free is invest in a clothing steamer. This will give your clothes that freshly pressed look in between cleanings. These items work amazingly well and take about 15-20 seconds to steam and will allow you to steam an item or two before having to refill with water. This tip alone will save you hundreds or more during the life cycle of the item of clothing. You’ll thank me later for this tip. Buy a clothing steamer on Amazon.
