Whether it’s buying groceries, getting new tires for your car, starting early  on your holiday shopping  or buying everyday household items, it’s easy to get carried away stocking up on everyday essentials or seasonal items,  but at the same time we could but at the same time we could all really benefit from new ways to save money. Here are a few ways to balance your spending this summer:

Plan Ahead. Americans are notorious for spending trillions on consumer goods and services every year, and a lot of them pay full price simply because it’s convenient. But by planning ahead, you can get great deals and can see the annual savings start to increase.

Earn Rewards While Shopping. There is a simple solution that lets you save on fuel for the items you normally buy. The Fuel Rewards Network program lets you earn rewards when making everyday purchases like food, household items and even travel (because who said a getaway wasn’t an essential?) Redeem your rewards for savings at the pump– making every time a good time to save!

Plus, with the Fuel Rewards Network program, you can save at least 3 cents per gallon on any grade of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasoline, including Shell V-Power® Premium Gasoline as well as Shell Diesel, every time you fill up (maximum 20 gallons per purchase)! Save even more now – we are bringing back the 25¢/gal New Member Bonus for a limited time from August 4 through November 2, 2014.

And now signing up for the Fuel Rewards Network at www.fuelrewards.com/, the program is even more rewarding! Now through November 2 when you encourage your friends to sign up you will earn a 25¢/gal bonus. Learn more about how you can save big at www.fuelrewards.com/fuelrewards/refer-a-friend.

Implementing good saving habits lets you lessen the strain on your wallet and have extra cash left over at the end of every month. What can you buy when you really save?
