No Wheels Needed


Seventeen years ago, I gave up my car by default. Mounting expenses brought me to the decision of either maintaining my apartment, or maintaining a car and facing eviction. Needless to say, the housing option won.

Soon after, I learned about the benefits of car-free living, how it impacts a simpler, greener life, and couldn’t be more satisfied.

The following post approaches the aspect of car-free living with kids–so it can be done. The way to save at the gas pumps is by driving less, or not at all, if you can swing it.

How to Be a Car-Free Family by Angela and Dorea Vierling-Claassen.

That last time I cleaned out my trunk, and left a set of keys with the mechanic, I knew it was farewell, and never looked back. True, it was a radical move, but a life-changing one for the better.
