I would love to hear your opinions on the subject of being a one car family.
Our new home in Charlotte is in an area that is very condusive to walking or biking to shops, activities, and the Husband’s work. Since I work from home, and the Husband’s clinic is only 1.5 miles from our place, we might be able to sell one of cars.
1. We would sell my car, which is paid off. We would turn around and pay down the loan on the Husband’s car with the profits.
2. We’d save about $100 a month in car insurance, gas money, and repairs by selling a car.
3. The Husband might get a Vespa or electronic scooter as an option when he doesn’t want to walk to work.
Are you a one car family? Why? Does it work out well? Could you ever a share a vehicle?
My family is a one car family right now. My sister had to take my mom’s car after her’s bit the dust driving back from her college graduation, haha. We have a gas scooter with a 50cc engine which requires no special driver’s license. Living in the suburbs around Pittsburgh the scooter is perfect for my dad and I when we need to get from point A to point B…we even grocery shop on the scoot! I totally support a one car family lifestyle.
