Moms, Shop for Your Own Tires Online and Save Money!

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.

Discover Hilton’s best promotions of the moment in Orlando. Stop clicking around & book directly at Hilton.com

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!

How to Find the Best Black Friday Deals

Advertising Disclosure:  This post contains affiliate links. For more information, please see our Privacy Policy and Disclosure


how to find the best black friday dealsBlack Friday is less than a day away!  Get ready to find the best black Friday deals, possibly the best this Christmas season!!  Retailers have been planning on this week all year because this is when the bulk of Christmas shopping will happen this year.  Peak Week starts the Monday before Thanksgiving and goes through the following Monday, referred to as Cyber Monday.  * Black Friday is a term almost used to describe this entire time period for many retailers.* I like to think of getting this task complete (or close)- Christmas shopping- so we can all enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas together a little more.

Back to Black Friday shopping, get your lists ready!  I do believe you will find some great deals this week if you are ready to make a purchase.  If you have any questions about securely shopping online, read this post to shop smart online this Christmas season.  We want to help you find the best Black Friday deals online and in stores so check Mom’s Priority daily for updates.

Best Black Friday Deals

We will be updating our list of deals daily as we receive them from retailers here on the Black Friday Deals page, accessible from the main page.  You may want to bookmark this page.

Here are a few tips to save money this Christmas season:

  • You need to remember to check prices before you buy.  Even though a retailer claims to be offering a great price on an item, that doesn’t mean it is the BEST price.  One great website resource to check Amazon prices is https://camelcamelcamel.com .  This is a legit site that does behind the scenes work for you.  You can even sign up for price drop alerts if you are shopping Amazon and need to find a particular item.
  • You should review the Black Friday Ads for major retailers below, which are linked below for your convenience.




Department Store Black Friday Ads

Black Friday 2018 is coming November 23!  Retailer giants like Amazon and Walmart have already begun their deals of the day and door busters, with more coming each day.  Here is a list of the bigger department store Black Friday ads we have so far.

Sam’s Club Black Friday Ad

Kohls Black Friday Ad

Macy’s Black Friday Ad

Walmart Black Friday Ad

Amazon Black Friday Ad

Target Black Friday Ad

Best Buy Black Friday Ad

 

More Black Friday Tips

  • Use promo and coupon codes whenever possible.
  • Note retailers that price match, and ask for a price match if you find an identical item at another store.
  • Consider a free trial of Amazon prime just for the holidays for the free shipping benefits. Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial.
  • Always keep your budget in mind and think about creating a Three Gift Rule to keep the focus off all of the gifts.  See our post about the Three Gift Rule here.

These are just a few of the ways you can find the best black Friday deals this week.  Good luck!!
