100 Frugal Tips in 100 Days: Tip # 27

Tip # 27 Get rid of that extra car!

Ok, so I realize that this is something everyone cannot do, but if you're in the position where you have 2 cars (or more) and there is a possibility you could make it work, you should strongly consider the option! We only have 1 car more out of luck and necesity than to be frugal, but it has been so easy! We've been fortunate enough to work close together and have similar schedules so carpooling has not been a challenge at all, and it's actually been nice to spend that extra time together during the commute. We didn't even realize how much money we were saving until a few years later (think: one car payment, one insurance payment, maintenance for one car, gas for one car)!
