Drop A Pin To Remember Where You Parked

Are you the type of person that always seems to forget where you parked? Well here’s an easy solution, especially for those times you’re parking in an unfamiliar area, particularly in a city. Drop a pin for yourself. Whether you have an android or an apple phone, you have the ability to mark your location. So as soon as you park, drop that pin and you’ll have no problem finding your car later on.

Understanding Your Gas Tank

If you’re driving a car you’ve never driven before, you might be wondering, which side of the car is the tank on? Well, this is actually easier to determine than you might’ve thought. In every car, there’s a little fuel pump symbol on your dash with an arrow next to it that points to whichever side the tank is on.

How To Avoid Getting Played By Mechanics

If you’re looking to get some work done on your car, there’s a good chance you’ll find yourself at a mechanic that is absolutely willing to lie to you and take advantage of your lack of knowledge about the vehicle. So, one great way to gauge if the mechanic is an honest one or not is to ask about a part of the car you’re positive is in great shape.

How To Get Sticker Off From Window

Whether you’re the bumper sticker type or the stick family type, it can be tough to get those pesky stickers off your car in one piece without leaving adhesive marks behind. If you’re having trouble with this, use warm water to soak some newspaper and place it over the sticker for about 10 minutes. It should come off much easier.

How To Get Rid of Blind Spots

If you can see the back of your car in your side mirrors, they’re positioned incorrectly and this could potentially be dangerous. The best way to avoid blind spots is to position the mirrors so that no part of your car appears in them.

Always Take Pictures Of Your Rental Car

If you’re renting a car, whether it be for just a day or for a weekend getaway, make sure you take pictures of it beforehand so that you can’t be blamed for anything wrong with it. Even with reputable rental companies, all it takes is one person to make the wrong decision to pull one over on you. Better safe than sorry!

"I enjoy because of all the great deals and bargains I find.
The money I save is a big plus too!
I have been using stockpiles for so long, I forget where I first found it.
It must of been googling for bargains!"
Renee, MA

"I have really enjoyed because it's a constant source of information and inspiration to me. I found completely accidentally - while web surfing. The best 'mistake' I made!" Barbra, MI

"I enjoy reading your newsletter because you have fabulous savings on items that I don't have time to search for. I was able to find this contest from an email I received from you. (I'm on your mailing list). I can't remember how I originally found you!"
Nina, GA

"I just found this site today from a link off of another site I was visiting- I love the wide variety of offers there are and tidbits to learn!! What a great site!"
Shawn, MN

• I am so glad I found
I love because it is someone sharing their knowledge of savings and freebies in a day when so little people want to share anything.
The grocery bag deals are rarely for any of the stores in my area, but I pass the information on to others, that also clip q-pons and do their best to live frugally.
I do make sure I check the sunday coupons against the grocery deals that are posted, just to be sure I didnt miss something of interest on my own. (I have been known to miss a few...LOL)
I have saved so much by ordering items from the hot deals of the day too. Toys for my son and grandson . A clock for my father, that was made by a company that he has been searching for, since last fall. He loved it so much he ordered another one for his girlfriend.
Being a stay at home mom, after being the major bread winner in our family, our income has decreased by 2/3! has made stretching our very meager budget so much easier.
So...Thank you for all that you do, it is greatly appreciated.
Brenda Thompson, OH

• I found you months ago, from another website post. You find deals for me that I would otherwise miss out on.Thank you doesn't say enough.
Barb, CA

• I can find what I need by coming to your site and it's my favorite and usually the only one I visit for the best deals. Right now I'm looking for a deal on a hand vac. My 5 yr. old vacuumed up a bowl full of water with my last one. It no longer works, but atleast he didn't electrocute himself!
Nancy Govero, KS
