This post brought to you by Sam’s Club . The content and opinions expressed below are that of Saving Dollars and Sense.


If you are planning a summer vacation with your family this year make sure your vehicle is in tip top shape to avoid any unexpected delays or expenses.

I speak from experience on this as we found ourselves stranded on the side of the expressway after narrowly making it across all three lanes after our tire exploded.  Here is a photo of what we found we we finally were able to get out of the car to see what that scary loud noise was.

I wish I had known about Sam’s Club #DareToCompare

A Sam’s Club membership can get you so much more that great prices on bulk food and household products.

In fact, did you know that they have a really great tire sales and installation department as well? My sister told me that she was getting her new tires from Sam’s Club years ago and I was surprised to find that they had the best prices on the top brands.

These tire brands include: Michelin, Goodyear, BF Goodrich and Pirelli.

Not only does Sam’s Club offer a fabulous price on tires, but they also include the Tire Installation Package with each tire purchase. The Tire Installation Package makes this deal unbeatable! ($15/tire, $25/dually tire).

The Sam’s Club Tire Installation Package* provides purchasing members with the following benefits and services for as long as they remain an active member of Sam’s Club: Tire Mounting Tire Lifetime Balancing Tire Lifetime Rotation A Value Stem No Charge Tire Lifetime Flat Repair 24-hour Emergency Roadside Service.

Complete terms and conditions of all Sam’s Club warranties and services can be obtained at any Sam’s Club Tire and Battery Center location.

What a perfect deal for upcoming summer road trips!

Sam’s Club works hard everyday to save their members money on tires. Let Sam’s Club help you save and get summer ready today! Their tagline is “We offer the best tire brands at the best “all-in” price, and we’ll match it!*

How the Sam’s Club “Dare to Compare” offer works:

Bring a valid “all-in” quote from a tire sales and installation retailer to your Sam’s Club Tire and Battery Center service counter. The quote must be printed on dealer/retailer letterhead and dated within the past 7 business days. The tire must be the same brand, same line, same load index and speed rating (service description) as the tire intended for purchase at Sam’s Club.

Sam’s Club carries some club-specific tire lines – in these cases, Sam’s Club will compare the club-specific tire line to the equivalent general-market tire line. Sam’s Club considers the following tire lines to be equivalent and will price match accordingly:

Club-Specific Tire Model General-Market Tire Model BFGoodrich Touring T/A BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Michelin Defender XT Michelin Defender Michelin X Radial LT2 Michelin LTX M/S2

BF Goodrich $50/$70 off set of 4

Michelin $70 off set of 4

Pirelli $80 Instant Savings

Goodyear $70 off set of 4

Being Frugal With Time

Thanks! You can read more about our Disclosure Policy here.

I spend a lot of time talking about frugality when it comes to things like groceries, energy, and gas. But there is one are where we can choose to be frugal that often gets overlooked.

After almost a year of my husband being laid off we easily found ourselves regularly sleeping until 8 am or more.

This had quickly become a habit and I didn’t even realize how wasteful I was being. I would never think to waste money in this way. And yet for some reason my time didn’t seem like a valuable thing?

Now that my husband is back to work we have been waking up again at 5 am every morning. I get the opportunity to spend alone time with my husband every single morning! I cannot tell you how much I have come to love these few early morning hours alone after my husband has left and before my kids awaken.

I can get so much accomplished between 6-8 am!

I was really missing out on those extra 2 hours in the morning to get stuff done before the kids started their day when I was staying in bed until 8 am. Before I began starting my day earlier I was beginning to feel like I was drowning.  I felt that I just didn’t have enough time in a day.

My home was suffering from it. My family was suffering from it. My kids schooling was suffering from it. My relationship with the Lord was suffering from it.

This is just to name a few areas where I was seeing the effects of those missing 2 hours.

And all the while I was complaining in my head (and occasionally out loud) that I just didn’t have enough time. Whining about how hard I had it and how much I was responsible for.  I had turned into a brat.  My attitude stunk and my heart began to fill with bitterness and regret.  I was in serious trouble if I continued down this road.

And then my husband got his job back and that meant we had to put an end to our wastefulness with our time.

I am thankful that I was able to reclaim those missing hours.  It has made all the difference.  I am able to spend time with the Lord and my husband, get a jump start on the days chores, blog, and just enjoy some time alone before the rest of the world wakes up and begins chipping away at my time.

Now, instead of saying I need a couple more hours in the day to get it all done I’ll be using the couple hours a day that the Lord is giving me.

I’m not trying to imply that everyone needs to be up at 5 am because I know each person has their own set of circumstances to work with. All I am trying to say is that you could reevaluate where you are.  Can you set the alarm just 15 minutes earlier, maybe a half hour even to prepare yourself for the challenges of the day to come.

Proverbs 31:15

She’s up before dawn, preparing breakfast
for her family and organizing her day.
