Our cars have batteries on opposite sides so we park the cars with the batteries closest to each other. On the rare occassion that a car needs a jump, the cars are already situated conveniently. This may seem silly but if you have ever been caught with your cars too far apart, you realize the merits
The cars have to be parked somewhere so this is how we determined each other's parking place. Just yesterday, my battery decided to die in the heat. I have since bought extra long jumper cables but this really is more convenient for me.

When my car door clicker went dead I called the dealer and found it was a hefty $100+ charge to get a new battery- I went to Batteries Plus and they replaced and installed the battery for the cost of the battery! Saved tons of cash!
Why park close to the door? Parking futher away allows you to get a few extra steps in towards those 10,000 steps a day (goal that I set for myself). Also, it helps with those drivers (and some passengers) who like to nick your car with their car doors.
Whenever people park their car regardless where they are going, we often have to find the closest parking spot. Get the extra bit of exercise in especially if you have a hectic schedule and park far away from the door. This may give you a minute or so of extra walking which is not much but it is a good start!
