6 ways to save on food costs during road trips with family

Friends planning road trips.

If you’ve been considering taking road trips with the kids, now might be a great time to put it into gear.

In April 2016, American drivers had saved nearly $12 billion on gas during the first months of the year compared to what they spent on fuel during the same time period in 2015, according to a recent AAA survey.

Furthermore, drivers are expected to pay the lowest gas prices in 12 years while traveling in summer, noted AAA.

As a result, 55 percent of Americans say they are more likely to take road trips this year. In fact, road trips are the most popular type of vacation for families planning to travel, followed by national parks and theme parks.

Without the need to worry about high prices at the pump, you can focus your savings radar on another key travel factor: food.

Food costs can fluctuate greatly, depending on when you stop to get a bite to eat, where you dine and what you pack before heading out.

Replacing your HVAC system can be expensive … here’s how to get the best value

HVAC system

With summer in full swing, it might be time to starting thinking about upgrading your home’s heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) system.

“Many homeowners don’t think about their HVAC system until it breaks,” says Dave Moody, vice president of marketing for Service Experts Heating and Air Conditioning, one of North America’s largest HVAC contractors.

“You don’t want to be forced to make decisions on purchasing a new system on the coldest or hottest day of the year. Ideally, consumers would approach this like any major purchase, such as a car,” adds Moody.

7 stores with an excellent return policy

Woman at a store with an excellent return policy.

After my mother passed, I was cleaning out her basement when I found a pair of new shoes in a Nordstrom box. These shoes had never touched the pavement and still sported the original price tag. I’d never returned anything to Nordstrom before, but I did to see if what all my friends said about their return policy was true. Indeed it was. They gave me a full refund with no questions asked.

Although most stores have a return policy in writing on their site, you can always ask if they’ll take back something that falls outside their policy. If the store prides itself on satisfied customers, it will usually try to accommodate you.
