For those with children, many hours can be spent in the car taking them to and from school and extracurricular activities. You can save money with a simple trick, and you can make a significant impact with a few conversations.
When you’re waiting for practice or school to end, turn the car off. Cars burn fuel when they’re running, but it costs you nothing to kill the engine instead of idling.
Take a few minutes to coordinate with neighbors and other parents to carpool to school and events. You’ll save time. Your kids will get more time with their friends. And you’ll normalize a behavior that can spread–fewer cars on the road and less fuel burned.
