Money Saving Tips: Stock up on Non-Perishable Household Supplies On Sale

It's always great to find ways to save money, even if you're one of the lucky individuals who is financially independent. One of the easiest ways to save money is to stock up on non-perishable items such as laundry detergent.
You can do this by joining a club store such as Costco or Sam's Club. However, if you're not in a position to purchase a club store membership or you would prefer not to, you can still save on household items by buying them when they go on sale, whether you need them at the time or not. 
King Soopers had an excellent sale on Sun Laundry Detergent: 45 ounce bottles for 1.99 each. 45 ounces washes 25 large loads. This is a good price to begin with. However, the deal got better. If I bought 5 bottles, I saved $5. This means I was paying 99 cents per bottle. 
The store generally has a limit to how many bottles a customer can buy during one trip. With a deal like this, I buy the maximum number allowed.
I also buy items like paper towels whenever they go on sale. 
Never pay full price for nonperishable household supplies. Purchase them in quantity during sales.

Drive for Uber

I'd like to give you the lowdown on driving for Uber, or at least for Uber Eats, as I have not participated in the passenger transport side of Uber as of this juncture. To learn more about that possibility, read The Ride Share Guy's blog. Harry has been driving with Uber for many years, and he really knows his stuff.
Driving for Uber is not quite as simple as just having an acceptable car. You need to keep in mind that many insurance companies don't want to insure ride share or delivery drivers using their own vehicle, and thus you may end up having to lie to your insurance company (as many rideshare drivers do) when they are asked the question "do you use your vehicle for ridesharing or delivery?" It's ridiculous, but the insurance company does not actually want to pay for any damage your vehicle may incur.
Also, keep in mind the cost of fuel and maintenance for your vehicle.
I haven't made the jump into transporting passengers, but I may be doing so in the near future. I would have to rent a vehicle, as none of my current vehicles meet Uber's passenger transport standards.
On to driving for Uber Eats.
I average $10 per hour driving for Uber Eats. It is not possible to make a living doing this, particularly if you have a family. A major drawback lies in the fact that Uber does not have a place for tipping within their app, and many people do not keep cash on hand these days. In all honesty, I cannot fathom why Uber does not create an option to tip within the app.
You will also need a smartphone to drive for Uber. There are several wireless companies which offer good options for getting a smartphone while not breaking the bank paying for service. I have used Consumer Cellular for several years now and am purchasing my iPhone 7 through them for $25 per month. Their service is reliable and I have been very happy with them. If you decide to go with Consumer Cellular and they ask who referred you, please give them my name, Cara Hartley.
There is no separate app for Uber and Uber Eats. Both are managed within the same app.
If you need a job quickly and you have a car, or you would like to pick up a little extra income outside of your main job but don't want to commit to a set schedule with a second employer, being an Uber rideshare driver or an Uber Eats driver may be an option for you.
I actually love driving for Uber Eats and would happily drive for them full time if I could make a living wage doing so. 
I consider a living wage to be a minimum of $15 per hour. This allows for a bit of recreation money. All work and no play makes Jack and Jill unhappy campers. One needs to have time for family, friends, and fun.

Registered Nurses: Colorado

Currently actively seeking registered nurses for case manager positions with a home care agency in Colorado. These positions are available in the Denver, Lamar, Craig and Sterling areas. Supervisory experience a plus.
Please contact me at with the subject line RN CASE MANAGER COLORADO if interested.

About Me

Hello and welcome! My name is Cara or Cie. I'm 52 years old and have been in the medical industry for most of my life. I recently partnered with, one of the foremost job search boards in the United States to become a recruiter or Head Hunter. My reason for doing so stems from the fact that I really enjoy helping others, but at my age and due to the physical compromises placed on me by diabetes and hypothyroidism, I am looking to move into less physically strenuous ways of doing so.
As you can see from the photo, I do not fit the typical image that many people have of a recruiter or head hunter. People tend to envision a type A personality in a suit. I look much more like someone's mother, grandmother or aunt. 
My sole purpose with this business is to find jobs for people who need them. You will never pay a cent for my services. Any information you give me is kept in strict confidence and will only be shared with prospective employers if you authorize me to do so.
At this time, I am only able to assist job seekers in the United States.
I can be reached at
Please put JOB SEARCH (preferably all caps) in the subject line so I don't miss your email.
Tell me which industry and/or job title you are seeking employment in. You can also include preferences such as hours and days you prefer to work. Also, state your preferred location (i.e. Denver, Los Angeles, etc.) and if you are willing to relocate or not.
I also offer free resume review services.
Again, you will never pay a penny for my services, and all information is kept in the strictest confidence.
Please don't hesitate to contact me and let me know if I can assist you in your job search.
