You heard me, when you go to a service station for your regular 6 month/5K miles inspection, ask them if they could wash the car too and return it looking as new as possible.  They won’t detail your car, but many of them will give it a good rinsing off for you.  Save you a bit of time and it will save you a bit of money.  Since you are already there it doesn’t really take you much longer if any longer.

Yes, you got it.  Fill your tank up in the  morning.  Gas is compressed in the cold weather, normally it’s colder in the morning.  So, you get more for your money.  Maybe it’s an old wives tale, but I live by it.  Also, if you go early enough, there are no lines.  Save time and money.

You buy a new car. You think I need to treat her right. You put the best of best gas in your car.  Guess what.  You’re car doesn’t need it.  Today cars are built so well that they run pretty good on regular fuel.  Save the extra dollars – this adds up significantly over time.  If you don’t believe me ask your mechanic.

Not necessarily intuitive, but if you live in an area that is deemed “high risk” by insurance companies (you know who you are), you may want to apply for private insurance first.  You may not only get covered, but you may get covered at a better rate.  Good luck.

Now, I’m not 100% sure that all companies use this and I’m hoping that I get some that may be in the industry to respond to this post.  But,  so many large purchases involve a quick look into your credit that I wouldn’t be surprised it insurance companies (who have cost effective access to the data readily available) take a peek.  If this is the case, then it’s not hard to extrapolate that the better your score the better your rate.  so, if you can hold off renegotiating till your score improves it may save you some cash in the long run. 

You shouldn’t have to pay to check your credit score though there are lots and lots of credit checking serives that not only charge you but they opt you into a recurring monthly fee (beware).  This is one monthly fee that you may not need.  All three credit companies:  equifax, experian, can’ think of third at the moment, are required by law to give consumers a copy of their credit reports for FREE.  Not FREE if you subscribe to a monthly monitoring service.  Now, it may take a while to navigate the phone system or internet site, but if you are willing to order your report and get it in the mail vs. online then your report is 100% free.

One way to reduce premiums is to try to find an affinity group that you can become part of that offers insurance discounts to their members.  Look into college groups and other organizations that you may be part of now or were part of at one time in your life.  Military discounts, senior discounts AARP rates, Alumni group discounts, small business association discounts.  Be clever and you could reduce your monthly premiums.

Be a safety girl! Be a safety Boy!  Safe means more money in your pocket.  If you have deadbolts, alarm systems, CO2 monitors, sprinklers and the like installed in your house (of course, if you do the installations, you would save money vs. hiring a specialist), you become eligible for safe home discounts.  Ask first what you need to do to qualify.
