Are you one of those who has not found how to generate savings in transportation and always end up asking for money for gas? Let it not happen to you!
When we talk about personal finances we refer to the different mechanisms that we have on a day to day basis to make the most of our resources. It is common to see that taxi drivers have a lot of work when the fortnight starts and towards the end they run out of passengers.
Tips to generate savings in transportation
1. Sign up
Manage your fortnight’s money in terms of transportation. Do not fill the tank of your vehicle with all your budget, because if you finish it you will surely be the ones who will have to walk or ask for a “ride”. It allocates a separate budget for any unforeseen event and in any way manages fuel consumption over 15 days. You can also use innovative services such as the one offered by Carrot, where you need to register to access a network of cars throughout the city.
2. Smart use
Do not use the vehicle if there is public transport that is direct or avoids the payment of parking. For example, do not go to the Historic Center in your car. If you can take the subway, it is cheaper and you will avoid the abuse of charging parking hours that these places get to commit against customers.
3. Be ecological
Use your bike or go for a walk while taking advantage of doing some household chores, such as taking clothes to the dry cleaner or going to the bakery. If you start analyzing what you use your car for, you will realize that some of these activities could be solved if you were walking or taking advantage of exercise and dusting the bike.
4. Be shared
If several of you and your co-workers live in the area and have the same or similar schedule in your office, share your car. Agree on who takes your vehicle on what day and generate savings in this area. If there are also companions who do not have a vehicle, organize yourself to take it with you and that can cooperate when loading fuel.
As you know, not all gas stations give you liters of a liter, so give yourself the task of identifying which are those that do not have the service pumps altered. To do this, Adviser has information about it that you can check online.
