I'm having to spend $100.00 a week commuting to rehearsals for the show my daughter is in. We're carpooling some. Thankfully I only live 3 minutes from my office. Instead of driving other places, once I'm there I stay there because I dont want to spend extra gas $. And I'm cutting corners every where else. Brown bagging it. Brewing coffee and taking in a thermos instead of hitting the drive thru. Not shopping. Stocking up on loss leader items at the grocery store. Planning on planting lettuce, tomatoes, and peppers in our back yard. And going without alot of things we normally wouldnt think twice about purchasing. And thinking ahead when I am running errands. I try to hit places successively that I need to go en-route to and from places that I absolutely have to go to, therefore avoiding needless trips back and forth. For example, I drive by the grocery store on my way home from work, so that is when I go to the store.
The lady we carpool with works for a trucking company- she says the theory that driving slower uses less gas is a myth.
Zero. I have no benefits at all, I'm just a lowly part-timer.
