How We Do Doctors Visits for Free

Doctors visits for free sounds crazy, but it’s true!  Here’s our story:   doctors visits for free

Our Story

My kids have both had strep throat recently.  It has been going around their school and although we were healthy all year, it finally caught us.  The good news is it didn’t cost us anything!  We were able to make an appointment for a phone consultation with MDLive, the company that Medi-Share partners with, each time and consult with a doctor immediately!   No cost for the appointment, or for the amoxicillin that we picked up within the hour from the pharmacy.  Our kids were back to no fevers within a day, and we continued through the antibiotics for 10 days.  Life changing!!  Read below for more details, and for all the ways we are saving on insurance, read HERE.

Virtual Doctor’s Visit

Thankfully, we can do doctors visits for free with Medi-share’s Telehealth program.  With Medi-Share we were able to “see” a doctor immediately virtually with their tele-health program.  You can review the available doctor’s certifications before selecting your preference among those available.  They were able to diagnose and treat our issue and prescribe medication to our local pharmacy…immediately!

For the germaphobe that I am, this was such a nice change.  No germy waiting room.  No waiting.  We didn’t even have to leave the house!  The best part:  it was free!  NO cost to see a doctor; this is included in our membership to Medi-Share.  I am not receiving any kind of commission for sharing this info; I just think it’s too good not to share!  This does not replace our regular doctors, and they will send the records to your doctor’s office if you wish.  This virtual service is very helpful, though, in these situations, and saves us a ton!

Sharing to Help You Live Your Priorities

If you are looking to save money on insurance so you can live your priorities, I highly recommend Medi-Share.  I think it’s a great service that is helping many people when health care is otherwise unaffordable.  We have saved a TON on insurance costs this year (thankfully, and fingers crossed), so I highly recommend you reading this page.   Our auto and home insurance changes have been life-changing as well!  Save money on these expenses, so you can live your priorities!

Honestly, this is one area that I have not touched in my efforts to save money and be like the Proverbs 31 woman! My habit- all I’ve ever known- is to go to the tire store and have them price tires for me, and install them while I wait. Basically, I feel like you have little choice in the tire situation, because what do I know about tires? I just take what they tell me- because I trust them on a certain level- and go with it, because I do not have the time or the knowledge to find tires myself.

Wal-Mart.com USA, LLC

Well, I truly believe Walmart could be on to something big here.

Find tires online at Walmart.com!

Now, I can shop for tires online by simply knowing my car make and model, and what kind of tires I currently have. That is easy enough. Walmart has a tire finder that searches across dozens of brands and pulls up the best fit for my vehicle. You can even pull up available rebates from tire brands! Probably, these rebates have gone to the tire dealer in the past because of my lack of knowledge and available transparency.  Walmart.com offers a wide variety of good brands including Goodyear, BFGoodrich, Michelin, Radar, Cooper and others.

Now, only time and experience will tell if this is a good deal or not, or whether it is worth it. The tires can be shipped for free to your store (or your home, if you are a real DIY’er) and you can have the Walmart tire department install them. I just appreciate the ability to search for myself and find the best deal. Thankfully, it is not time for me to purchase new tires on my almost new vehicle just yet. But, I am going to go through the process to see how simple it could be. If you have experience from Walmart online tire shop, I’d love to hear from you at momspriority@gmail.com or comment below.

To have 4 tires for my 2018 Expedition sent to my local Walmart or to my home, it is $511 including tax and free shipping. Installation at Walmart adds another $15 per basic tire. This is not a bad price for 4 SUV tires; however, I have not had new tires put on this vehicle so I am not completely sure.  Here are all of the links so you can check it out for yourself:

Clinique Products 

I have been approached multiple times to get on the multi-marketing bandwagon with another skincare provider from other women, and my answer is always no for several reasons.  The primary reason is I have no interest in switching.  Clinique products have been good to my skin for many years, back to the teenage years when my skin needed lots of help!  I think many in my generation grew up on Clinique, as our moms used Estee Lauder!  No reason to change a good thing!  Also, I am thankful for the ability to easily purchase my Clinique makeup without making a trip to the mall.  Ordering online is so simple, and your makeup typically arrives at your door within 2 days.  Ordering Clinique on Macys.com is so simple- why complicate it?  While you’re on macys.com, check out the sales in other departments and get free shipping with any beauty purchase.

5 Disney Money Saving Tips

Disney World is on many families’ bucket lists of places to experience with kids, and truly, it is an amazing family fun experience for families!  Even if you can’t or won’t spend thousands of dollars on a vacation, you can still experience Disney World with these Disney money saving tips.

5 Disney Money Saving Tips

5 Ways to Save at Disney

Plan in Advance

Plan your trip well in advance.  Hotels, while plentiful in Orlando, can book up with the number of visitors and conventions that are ongoing in that city.  Planning in advance also makes sense with regards to meal reservations and fast passes.  We’ll talk about that more below, but people start booking these up to 6 months in advance, so don’t wait!  You also can find out when is the best time to go to Disney.  We’ve found that November is a wonderful time!  The park is already decorated for Christmas, the weather is very nice, and it’s not that crowded.

Plan Your Itinerary

Once you nail down the dates of your vacation, plan your days in detail.  Sound like planning takes away the spontaneous fun, right?  Well, time is money in Disney World.  One-day ticket prices start at $109/day per person and $99/day per child age 3-9, depending on the Disney park you are visiting and season!  The price seems steep, but only until you realize how much you get for your money, with all of the shows, parades, rides, and character visits!  But, if you spend your time waiting in line unnecessarily because you didn’t plan well, you will miss out.  So, plan your days.  Look at the crowd calendars available on touringplans.com and undercover tourist.  Decide which days you want to go to which park, based on the crowd levels and what features you’re looking for in your day.  You can choose from the electric parade which vary in hours at night or the extra magic hours that you can receive by staying at certain hotels.

Plan Your Park Day in Detail

Once you decide your days, plan out your route around the park.  Keep your meal reservations, character visits, and fast passes in mind.  Doing this in advance will make the day go SO much smoother when you’re in the park with your family!  You can book character meals up to 180 days in advance.  These reservations fill up so often you need to check back before your trip to see if better times/days become available.  Also, remember if you have a really young one, you can do Rider Swap on certain rides, meaning the parents can switch without waiting in line twice.

Consider Food Options

When planning your hotel and meals, consider a hotel that offers a free continental breakfast in the rate, and remember that you can bring in food and drinks.  You can eat breakfast at the hotel, pack PBJ’s, snacks, and waters and take in the stroller, and then eat an off-time dinner in the park.  Buy a few fun treats/snacks like ice cream when you really need a break from the day or in the evening. We have stayed at the Hampton Inn near Disney World in Orlando, and enjoyed the free breakfast and free transportation to the Disney parks.  Save up to 15% off when you book early at thousands of Hampton by Hilton. Book early & save big! Another option is to stay at a hotel inside the park, making it easily accessible to return back for a midday break, and then you can go back to the park later.  This is great particularly Magic Kingdom!  You can enjoy the nighttime parades and fireworks, hopefully avoiding the exhaustion and tantrums! We’ve done this also, and it was awesome, just much more expensive.

These are just a few tips on creating a memorable family trip at Walt Disney World.  Check out these websites for more tips on a wonderful Disney vacation!
