Errands… we all have them… we all loathe them. We have a stop here, a stop there, get our oil changed, pick up the kids from school.. The list goes on and on. So have you ever thought “There has to be a way to combine some of these errands”? Well I have 3 Secrets to Save Time and Money on Errands to share with you.
My first secret is to make lists.
Make a list of everything you need to get as well as keep an ongoing list where you write down what you are out of as soon as you can. Go around your house to see what you may have missed so that you don’t have to run to the store a second time for that one thing that wasn’t on the list.
My second secret is to map out your route.
I try to go to the farthest place first then work my way back home.
Another secret that I have recently discovered is getting my oil changed at Walmart while I go shop.
You would think I would have discovered this secret a bit sooner, but glad that I now have. Seriously this makes me happy. I usually send my hubby to get my oil changed because the last thing that I want to do is sit in a car place while my oil gets changed. But maybe now I will get it done myself…Maybe 🙂
All I had to do was take my van to Walmart, check to see if your Walmart has an automotive center, drop it off to get the oil changed and while my van was being serviced I was able to go get items on my shopping list. This saved me time since I was able to knock out two errands at one place. It saved me money as well. Right now in Houston, an oil change that is normally $39.98 is on rollback for $35.88. Taking my van to Walmart will also save me on repairs since they use Penzoil Motor Oil. The High Mileage Vehicle blend – Helps to reduce leaks and oil consumption in worn or higher mileage engines. It’s a motor oil that is specifically designed for new or late model vehicles with over 75,000 miles, to help keep the engines running clean and going strong for a long time. My van just hit 75,000, so it needs a new type of oil to keep it running longer.
I hope my 3 Secrets to Save Time and Money on Errands help you out 🙂
