The Question of Living with Less; by guest columnist Linda-

Posted on July 13, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

We are thinking it is time to be a one car family of two. HIS OR MINE. New car ownership is out of the question. It’s not a matter of driving skills. The price to fill our tanks is costly (and old cars are not fuel efficient), and exceeds our budget to visit the Grandchildren, as we would wish. But can we ACTUALLY combine and schedule our travels to: his pulmonary doctor, his hair cut appointment, his colonoscopy, his dentist, his fishing date, his exercise group, vascular doctor, Big Lots store and food bank work, with MY: clothes shopping, hair appointments, periodontist, dermatologist, orthopedic surgeon, lunch with friends, my physical therapy appointments, the pharmacy, the grocery store, and to see our friends, sisters and brothers and daughters and sons?!

I don’t think I want to be a one car family anymore. I don’t want to live with less.
