    Since I joined Spark I've started doing this, too. Prior to that I would drive around several minutes to find the closest. I find that just parking a walking gets me in & out of the store just as quickly, plus I have the added benefit of getting in some extra steps.

    I do this all the time. The further away the better. Also helped keep other cars from dinging my doors because nobody parks that far away! emoticon

    I do the same. emoticon It started out with not liking to drive around looking for the closer to the store parking space. Now, I purposely park far every time I go out to get that extra steps into my day.

    I do this most of the times. I have even started doing it at work.

    I agree - any small way to add steps helps.

    I have been doing this too, and even if I need 1 thing inside the store, I walk the whole way around to get to the cashier. emoticon
