download (1)Did you know that FedEx is more than a delivery service?

I was surprised to learn that they offer a complete range of printing services as well. A while back I was given the opportunity to use to try the print services and I was very impressed with the quality of the flyers I designed online and picked up in the store near me in just about an hours time.

HomepageRiver_Flyers_235x244The process was so simple, which is am important thing for busy moms like myself. I was able to choose the size and type of paper I wanted and since I already has a PDF copy of the flyer I was able to upload it quickly and proceed to checkout.

Start to finish it probably took me less than 10 minutes to create and order my gorgeous flyers. I received an email a short while later letting me know they were ready for pickup! It was so fast that I wasn’t even dressed for the day yet because I thought I would have plenty of time ;)

I love that I didn’t have to sacrifice quality for speed and I had the flyers I needed for a class I was hosting on essential oils in no time.

Right now they have a great special happening that you might be interested in as well.

5 Ways to Beat the Summer Heat Without Air Conditioning

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

It’s mid-summer and it’s hot out there!

Maybe you aren’t one of the lucky ones that has air conditioning and you are thinking that you are just going to have to sweat it out.

Wrong! There are plenty of great ways to beat the summer heat without air conditioning.

Here are a few:

Make Your Own “Ice Fan”

Head to the gas station and buy one of those BIG blocks of ice. Place it in a large bowl right in front of your floor fan and turn on the fan. The fan will hit the ice and blow ice cold air into the room.

Eat Only Cold Things

If it’s hot out, don’t be cooking in the oven! Have a dinner of nothing but fresh veggies. Eat ice cream or smoothies for snacks. Anything that you don’t have to heat up in any way will keep your body cool.

Cover the Windows

Buy reflective plastic for your windows or if you don’t want to spend the money, just take blankets and put them over the windows. They will keep the light and heat from coming in and keep your house cool during the day.

Get Out the Kiddie Pool

If it’s swelteringly hot outside, you don’t really care what you have to do to cool down! Throw in you and the kids’ swimsuits and fill up the kiddie pool (or run through the sprinkler with them!). There’s no reason the kids just have to enjoy the cool of the pool alone!

Open the Windows

After you’ve had the windows covered all day, as soon as the sun goes down, pull down those shades and get the windows open. Even if the evening temp is only slightly cooler it’s still cooler and will help your home cool down.

There are many ways you can try and stay cool in the summer without air conditioning…what are your favorites?

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
