Frugal Challenge: Gas Challenge
I filled up my gas tank on Monday for $38, and that was even with $.20 off per gallon because of grocery points. Now my plan is to see exactly how long I can make that tank of gas last.
If I'm just going from home to work and back, I will walk or ride my bike--no driving allowed!
Thursdays, I'm filling at my old job while my boss is out on maternity leave, so I will have to drive, because it's 20 minutes away.
I'm going to be extra vigilant about clustering errands to avoid extra trips to the grocery store and other places, plus, I should really just avoid most stores these days since I've still car that stupid car bill to pay off.
I do have some meetings and a doctor's appointment coming up, so that's a factor.
I've asked bf to replace the gas that he used to go to his mom's house the other day.
It's a 13-gallon tank, and when I was commuting six-seven days a week, I usually had to fill up every week or ten days. Anyone want to take any bets as to how long I can get by on a single tank? My goal is to make it to April, but that might be very wishful thinking.
