How To Save Thousands Of Dollars Every Year, Without Even Trying
If you’ve been alive for more than two minutes, you’re aware that prices for literally everything are insane. Whether it’s groceries, gas, clothing, or virtually anything else, you’re paying significantly more than you did this same time last year. What if we were to tell you that you could save up to $10,000 every year without even trying! We know what you’re thinking; it sounds too good to be true. Well, it’s not, and we’re gonna show you how.
Stop The Bleeding
To start, you have to stop the bleeding. No, we’re not talking about actual blood; we’re speaking metaphorically. Chances are, in your possession right now, you have something that is costing you hundreds of dollars every month, and that number is expected to increase. What is this cursed object, you ask? Your car.
*Gasp* Not my car, you may be thinking. My ’94 Civic with the lowered frame and blacked-out rims is my baby; she would never hurt me! To that, we would reply, “heck yes, she would!”
On average, Americans are paying over $400/ month on gas for their vehicles, which amounts to a staggering $5,000 per year. That number doesn’t include extras like car washes or customizations, which will increase significantly. Add in maintenance, repairs, and insurance, and you’re looking at a hefty $10,000 gone, thanks to your vehicle.
Imagine, if you will, what you could do with an extra ten thousand dollars every year. You could go on an all-inclusive vacation, buy that gaming console you’ve been eyeing, save for a downpayment on a house, or so much more; the possibilities are endless! Now you may be thinking, “ok, my car may cost me a ton of money, but what choice do I have? I need a form of transportation.” Well, get ready to do a happy dance because we’ve got the answer!
“Public transit?” you may ask, “I’ve never used it before; I wouldn’t even know how to start!” To that, we say, using public transit is easier than ever! Not only can it save you money, but it simplifies your life in so many ways.
Public transit can make your commute easier, reducing your stress and anxiety. Imagine reading a book, listening to music, or sleeping, all while accomplishing your daily tasks!
People using public transit have a higher chance of staying healthy and reducing their risk for common health issues. Now that’s a win-win!
Public transit limits the amount of CO2 emissions released into the atmosphere, benefiting the environment and helping us all breathe easier.
