Simple Single Mom: Carfree: "We love not having a car. We've gotten to know our neighbors by walking past them, instead of just pulling out of our driveway each morning. Riding the bus with a preschooler is especially fun since I don't have to pay attention to traffic it really is quality time. We save money; I save about $12,000 each year by not owning a car. Best of all, my weekends aren't devoted to maintenance & repairs."
