There are dozens of serious, money-saving tips staring at you, and if you don’t take advantage, there is no one to blame but yourself. Let’s look at some…
Reveal your age where it counts. Many restaurants offer a senior discount — ask the next time you eat out. For example, at 15 percent off, you can save $7.50 on a $50 dinner for two. Or check out the many restaurants that offer free eats on your special day… some even push the discount for the entire special month! It also makes sense to buy a battery charger and then use re-chargeable batteries.
Keep your car tires properly inflated. For every 5 psi of air pressure below normal, you lose 2 percent on gas mileage. You do the figures! Also, if necessary, buy glasses online. It often is 70 percent cheaper. it could be something like $210 off a $300 pair of spectacles. And several surveys show Monday is often the cheapest day to buy. Look around at the sales.
