I growl every time I have to get gas lately.  It’s creeping back up to $4 per gallon again.  That’s two gallons of milk (or one if you live in Florida – I can’t believe milk is sooo expensive there!).

I was searching for ways to save money on gas, and here’s my favorites.  There were many suggestions I left off the list, such as living near a bus stop or riding your bike to work, because I figure you either live near a bus stop or you don’t; there isn’t much you can do to change that situation.  And you either are within biking distance to work or you aren’t.   So things outside of your immediate control or no-brainers I left off to cut down to the ones that I think are more relevant.  These are in no particular order:

  1. Tighten the gas cap: Gas does evaporate.  I’ve had friends who had missing gas caps and didn’t care. Who knows how much $$$ in fuel evaporates from their car each day!
  2. Fill up your tank when you are near empty: Well, this one is tricky.  Supposedly, your car is lighter when it has less fuel, thus it uses less fuel to run. So it is good for your car to have less fuel in it.  But I was always taught not to let the tank get under 1/4 full, so if there is an emergency and you need to go somewhere quick you have gas to get there.  What do you think?
  3. Gas Prices While Traveling: Type in your zip code at GasBuddy.com to find out the cheapest gas station near you.
  4. Memberships, memberships, memberships: Sam’s Club, Kroger stores, and many other stores offer some pretty good discounts, around $.10 per gallon, if you are a member.  I specifically wait to go shopping to Smith’s until I need to fill up, so I can fill up while I am there – they go up to $1 off per gallon!
  5. Car Check-up: Replacing that old air filter could save you as much as 10% in gas!  Make sure your engine is tuned up.
  6. Shade: Park your car in shade or get a good window covering.  The cooler it is in the summer, the less A/C you will have to use!
  7. Call ahead: Certain stores, like Target, will put items on hold for you.  If you’re looking for a hot coupon deal, don’t drive all over town finding it in-stock at your local Target – call ahead first and if they have it, tell them to put it on hold.
  8. Time Your Trips: Traveling during non-peak hours will reduce your time spent in traffic.
  9. Combine Trips: I already do this – and I route the quickest ways from point A to B to C.
  10. Bye-bye Off Roading: Ouch! Traveling on dirt or non-paved roads can reduce your mileage by up to 30%!!!

I had a phenomenal trip this morning to the Kmart Double Coupon Event and am getting ready to go again today with my mom  and use the $1/1 Tide and $1/1 Charmin and $/1 Bounty coupons I got inside my Pampers I bought! Let me explain in further detail:

Not all boxes have the $30 in P&G coupons inside – look for the specially marked packages, then do this deal:

Buy 2 packages
Use the $2/1 Pampers Diapers or Pants, exp. 3-31-11 (P&G 02/27/11)
Pay $29.98 OOP
Recieve a $10 catalina
Final Price= $9.99 each for the biggest size packages!
Now I was worried, because after I scanned my Kmart rewards card, these are the only 2 catalinas that printed:
Then I paid for my transaction, and my receipt printed: (note I used $1.75/1 coupons because I didn’t have the $2/1 pampers coupons)
THEN finally the $10/$10 coupon printed!!!!
THEN a coupon printed for a FREE pretzels!  I won a KaChing reward!

Hurray! Well things just kept getting better, checkout the coupons that were in the Pampers boxes I bought: (I put my favs in pink!):

$2/1 Any Size Pampers Swaddlers or Cruisers
$1/1 Similac Brand Infant Formula
$1/1 Dreft Baby Laundry Detergent 32 loads or larger
$.50/1 pampers wipes 60 ct. or larger
$2/1 Vicks Baby Rub
$1/1 Tide Any Size
$1/1 Bounce Dryer Bar
$1/1 Downy Fabric Softner Any Size

$1/1 6 roll Ct.  or Larger Bounty Paper Towels
$1/1 Any Charmin
$1/2 Cascade
$1/1 Dawn Hand Renewal
$1/1 Any Pack Duracell CopperTop 6 Pack or Larger
$7/1 Crest White Strips
$1/1 Febreeze Air Effects
$1/1 Febreeze Fabric Refresher
$4/1 Flamelss Luminary Starter Kit
$1/2 Snack Sticks
$2/1 Venus Razors
$1/1 Always Pads or Pantyliners
$1/1 Secret Clinical Strength
$2/1 Gillette Clinical Deodorant or any 2 deodarents (full size only)
Buy any Gillete Deodorant, get a  Free Gillette Body Wash
BOGO Free Old Spice Body Spray
$1/2 Old Spice
So when I was at the store, I saw this deal:

I saw that Bounty paper towels are $12.99 (reg. $17.99) for 12 big rolls, that equal 16 rolls!

Well, now I have $1/1 Bounty coupons from my Pampers box I purchase, PLUS these are P&G so if you spend over $35 you’d get yet another $10 /$10 coupon!

I also saw Charmin 24 big rolls (equals 48 regular rolls) on sale for $15.99, and there’s $1/1 Charmin’s in the coupon booklet as well!

So JUST using the coupon booklet out of the Pampers boxes you can get this deal:

Buy 1 Bottle of Tide 75oz or 55 Load $8.99
Buy 1 Bounty paper towels $12.99
Buy 1 Charmin 24 double rolls TP – $15.99

Total before coupons= $37.97 (so you’ll get the $10 catalina)
Use the $1/1 Tide coupon
Use the $1/1 Bounty Coupon
Use the $1/1 Charmin coupon
Pay: $31.97 OOP
Recieve a $10 catalina
Final Price= $21.97 for all three!

OR you can get another item for free from this list, and use the $4 off any $40 coupon purchase that printed from earlier, and get another $4 off + free item!
