For nearly three years, we have shared a car. It’s not something most couples could realistically do, between different jobs, kids, and different interests.
When we had to go down to one vehicle, we thought, well, let’s try it and see how long we can last. I can say, there have only been a handful of times that it’s been a struggle in the last three years. We’ve saved a lot of money with only one vehicle. It’s also helped us both grow in patience. Sometimes we have to wait for the other, sometimes it can be for a long time. But thankfully, I have a job that’s super flexible (and work for amazing clients who are soooooo understanding).
Another benefit is more time together. We get to catch up with each other a lot more since we drive together.
While there is a part of me that misses being able to up and go whenever I want, it has forced me to be logical about my errands and running around.
We’ll likely get a new car soon, since my good ol’ Sam (you name your car, don’t you?) is nearly at 250,000 miles (less than 5,000 miles to go!)
