Take The Bus Or Walk


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

A year ago I made the decision to stop driving and take the bus or walk when necessary. As a result, I save money in gas and my spending has lowered because I find it too inconvenient to wait on a bus to grab lunch or walk through the rain to do a "little" shopping. Also, I do one weekly shopping with my husband and if there is anything that I forgot to put on the list, I now simply work around it or do without rather than hop in the car and drive a couple of times a week to shop.

    When I lived in a city I walked everywhere. Even if it took 2 hours when I needed to get to the other side... and I had a bus pass! I miss being able to walk everywhere now that I'm out in the country. I can't wait for the snow to disappear so I can stop using my car all the time and start biking again!
