How to Find Deals on Tires – Keeping Your Car Safe on the Road

There are some affiliate links below, but these are all products I highly recommend.

How to find deals on tiresDid you know that your tires do more than keep your car rolling down the road? They can affect your gas mileage, they can affect comfort and they can affect the resale value of your car. They can also be very expensive which makes finding a deal on tires a necessity for more families. The next time you’re looking to replace yours, use these tips to help you save your hard earned money. So how do you find deals on tires?! Well let me help!

Buy used – Most people won’t consider buying used tires, but if they are bought from a reputable tire dealer, there isn’t any worry with it. Used tires that are resold often come from cars that were sold and had their tires changed or cars that no longer run. Neither of these cases mean that the tires are bad. When looking for a deal on used tires, make sure that your dealer is a reputable reseller with a proven track record of providing great service. You’ll also want to make sure that you double check the tire tread and make sure that the rim is in good condition as well. Purchasing your tires used can save you several hundred dollars since usually you can find a deal that will let you buy all 4 tires for under $200 versus $100+ per tire.

Buy locally – Another option for buying new or used tires cheap is to buy locally. Checking apps like OfferUp or LetGo and your local Facebook buy/sell/trade groups can be great places to save. You might find someone who has a surplus of the tire sizes you need or recently had theirs changed but now needs to find extra cash. A lot of small mom and pop tire centers will also advertise deals.

Search for coupons – If buying used tires isn’t your thing, you can still save pretty significantly by finding a coupon. Pepboys and other tire places like them, often offer coupons that will save you money when you buy more than one tire or service. These coupons are usually money off of 2 or more tires, but if you’re looking to replace all four that are on your car, they can be big savers. You’ll also want to be watchful of coupons that you can combine to save on other services. These can be things like “buy 2 tires and save $10 on an oil change” types of coupons. Combined they can save you even more.

Use a Groupon – Groupon is great for more than a tasty meal or a fun activity. It can actually save you on things like new tires and/or oil changes. Keep your eyes open for vouchers that will save you as much as 50%, 60% or even more off of the tires that you need. If you can find one that doesn’t prevent stacking, you can try to combine a voucher and a Groupon to help you save even more!

Big box tire centers – Finally, if you can’t find a deal elsewhere, big box tire centers like Walmart can be a great place to save a little bit of money. You won’t save a ton, but any savings is a good savings. Usually you can get a tire for around $100 each and while that certainly isn’t the greatest price in the world, it is a much better price than a lot of other places.

Buy more – At most tire centers, buying a single tire is expensive, but if you can swing buying 2, 3 or even all four at the same time, you’ll save. This might mean that you need to save up for your tires longer but in the long run, you’ll save significantly.

Do the work yourself – When having your vehicle worked on, usually it isn’t the parts that will cost the most. It is the cost of labor that jumps things sky high. To save yourself the most money, buy the tires then take them home to put on your car yourself. Doing the work yourself can save you hundreds each year and as long as you know what you’re doing, won’t cause any long lasting issues with your vehicle.

Life With a Baby – 11 Months Old!!!!

There are some affiliate links below, but these are all products I highly recommend.

11 months old

How oh how is my baby almost 1 year old?! Where has the past 11 months went? I mean seriously, it has gone so fast! We are in the process of planning his first birthday and in high mode buying decorations, meal planning and all that beautiful jazz! 

Clay is officially 11 months old, wow! He has such a personality, it is for sure contagious! He is one shy little man but once he warms up he is all about laughing, hugs, kisses, and having fun! I think he is shy because his dad and I both are a little shy at first, so it comes naturally to him!

Clay 11 Months

SO What is NEW: 

Absolutely in love with his Pal Scout by LeapFrog – when you push a button and Scout starts talking he just smiles ear to ear.

I bought this Minky Chenille Blankee for Clay before he was born, he now uses it for his security blanket, at naps and such. I bought it from Bebe Bella Designs – you can buy it here.

Macaroni and Cheese is his most favorite food by far! Clay just goes to town eating it. He also loves anything with potatoes, cheese of all kinds, and crackers. He can be picky with his foods, but when we find something he loves it is a winner in our books!

He is really using his Vtech Sit to Stand walker. He isn’t walking on his own, but getting very close. He will push this walker around to get to where he wants to go!

Sleeping is getting a lot better finally! He isn’t eating at midnight, he can sleep through the nights now. He still tosses and turns and needs soothed a few times through the night but it is SO much better than before. You can really tell he is changing in his sleep. He might sleep 9-10 hours a night.

As for naps he normally takes 2 naps a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. He does wake up around 5:30 or 6 am, we haven’t got him to sleep in yet. In time I hope we reach that!

He is really very needy lately, crying when you sit him down. He is going through a growth leap and that all those mixed emotions he is having are totally normal from what I read.

5 Fall Car Care Tips – That will help keep your car in great shape

There are some affiliate links below, but these are all products I highly recommend.

Fall Car Care Tips

Car maintenance is so important to keep your in tip top shape. If you don’t keep your oil changed when needed and fresh windshield wipers on you could end up in some trouble. I was raised from a young age to take care of my car, checking tires, and such. It just so happened I married a man that went to school for mechanics, so I still know how important it can be.

I did a post for prepping your car for winter, and now I wanted to talk about 5 Fall car care tips! These tips are pretty easy to do, and if you need help you can reach out to a car dealership or mechanic shop, and they can help you out. It is worth putting money towards your car so that it keeps you safe!

Windshield Wipers: Make sure your windshield wipers are good and working well. If they are streaking your windshield they might need to be wiped off, or a new set put on. They are very affordable and can really save you on a rainy day!

Car Battery: Making sure your car battery is clean from erosion is very important. With frigid weather, it can really wreak havoc over your battery. You don’t want it to be really cold out and your car battery dies, and your stuck in the cold for awhile. Just look at the terminals to ensure they are clean. If your battery is getting old you might think about investing in a new one.

Tires: When you look over your tires ensure they have good tread, no bald spots, and look good. If you see some cracks on them, it means they are aging. It can lead to a tire blowing out when you are traveling on the road, so you really want to check your tires often!

Check all Fluid Levels: Another really important thing to do is check your power steering, break fluid, washer fluid, and transmission fluid. Refill if needed, to make sure they are at the right levels. If you are unsure go to a mechanic and have them do it for you.

Heater Working: If you live where it is colder in the Fall, make sure your heater is working good. You want to ensure it can warm your car nicely, and it isn’t having issues. The test run could really help you out in the long run!
What is one thing you do for your car for prepping for Fall weather?
