I Have a Car
But not in the sense that I once had a car. I haven’t purchased a car, or anything crazy like that. No, today I received my official Flexcar pass! This enables me to reserve a car for a measly $7.50 an hour which covers gas, insurance, maintenance, everything. I figure it costs about $150 or so a month to keep a car insured and in good condition. That doesn’t even include gas. So, I can use the car for 20 hours a month and have paid less than someone who hasn’t used their car at all!
Obviously if I used the car with any frequency it wouldn’t be a deal. But I need to use a car all of two times a month. I figure this is going to be a good investment and an excellent test run to see if this is a workable solution to avoiding buying an actual car.
