If you want some tips to save money on your commute to the store so you have something extra to spend on gifts or yourself, please keep on reading.

Car Maintenance Saves You Big Money Long Term

Driving a car that needs upkeep is a ticking time bomb. Eventually, it’ll stop running, and the repair you need then will be much more expensive than fixing it earlier. With vehicles, preventative maintenance goes a long way. 

When looking for affordable auto service, make sure to visit a mechanic that can service hybrid vehicles that consume traditional gasoline. Modern mechanics should have the equipment to repair the latest vehicles.

It’s a good sign if they fix rare luxury automobiles. Even if you drive a modest Honda, you’ll feel more peace of mind entrusting your popular car model with someone who routinely services rare, exotic, luxury vehicles. If they have the skills and the parts to repair a complex high-performance vehicle, they can fix the popular models on the road today.

Go For a Walk

The most affordable way to get anywhere is the way that costs no money. Walking isn’t only free.It’s a beautiful way to get exercise since it lets you explore your community and meet people, all while enjoying effective low-impact exercise.

You may be surprised to learn how many calories you burn in a walk compared to a jog! It doesn’t make sense to drive from place to place to save time only to carve out time later to get some exercise.

Get around town the affordable and active way by bundling up and going for a walk. If it’s really cold, bring a thermos with you and sip while you walk.

Winter Bike Riding

More North American cities are embracing winter bike riding! So long as you have thicker tires and your municipality takes snow removal in bike lanes seriously, you can bike around town 12 months a year. 

Cities like Montreal do a wonderful job clearing snow for cyclists, and modern cities are following suit. Cycling lets you enjoy speeds approaching what cars can drive in the city with all the active benefits of walking.

You’ll see your city very differently when traversing by bike, appreciating its geographical contours as you navigate its terrain. Just make sure you wear bright lights while cycling in the dark, wear a helmet, and only ride on a rugged bike that can handle winter conditions.

You don’t need to spend a fortune on Christmas gifts to show someone that you care. Having a little extra dough in your wallet is never a bad thing, especially when the economy is struggling. Keep the above tips about how to get around town for less in mind, enjoy the Christmas holidays, and have a happy new year, too!
