This is how!
Well this is kind of complicated, but I will try and keep it short! This is where I tell people you have to change your way of thinking!
Instead of paying $77 for gas a week Plus $77 for food, which you can agree would = $144 a week!
I use my gas budget of $77 a week and use it on the items that get me gas points at Stop & Shop and get $77 in FREE Gas!
Some weeks I do not even use the FULL $77 toward items for gas points and I am able to use that extra money for things like meat & produce!
Here is an example of what a gas point page might look like (there are usually more I just took a few)
When I am figuring out which ones I might buy this week this is how I do it:
.40¢ a gallon x 35 gallons = $14.00
$14.00/5 products to buy = $2.80 towards each item! Right off the bat when you look down you can see which ones would be free or you would have to pay a little out of pocket for.
.40¢ a gallon x 35 gallons (maximum fill up amount) = $14.00
Buy 5 Gold Peak Teas x $1.99 = $9.95
$14.00 – $9.95 = $4.05 Money Maker
Buy 30 Gold Peak Teas x $1.99 = $59.70
Earn $84 in gas (35 gallons x $2.40 in gas)
$84 – $59.70 = $24.30 Money Maker (use this towards meat & produce)
Buy 5 Pepperidge Farm Cakes x $3 = $15.00
$15.00 – $14.00 in FREE gas = $1.00 or paying .20¢ for each one!
Not only am I able to get FREE gas & FREE food and items at the store I am able to Stock Pile and am able to have the things we need on hand!
I always say, I cannot give you a $100, but I am able to give you a $100 worth of products and I wouldn’t even know it was missing!
What if i do not have a large family or I do not want these items? Go to page 3
