Today is the first day that Y and I have carpooled for the sake of saving money. We have previously done it because of the roads. We live 10 miles from his work and 12 from mine. I figured out that we can save roughly 60 bucks a month by carpooling.
While this may seem like a no brainer, its a total pain. I have to have the car because I go feed Baby G at lunch. Y does have to stay late every once in awhile if they have an emergency. Its also just a hassle to pick up and drop off.
I came up with this plan to save money because it seems like Y is having trouble cutting back. We've been very poor before so I know he can do it. He seems to not really value just not spending. I don't want to nag at him so I came up with this idea. We will see how long it lasts. Maybe I'm just super practical? Or a little sadistic?? Hehe
