Tell Me something Tuesday: Family car

We are a one car household. Yup, a family of 6 and only 1 car. We have been a 1 car family for nearly 2 years now. I would like to say it is because we are being environmentally conscious and trying not to add to the problems of our planet. The reality is that we are avoiding another car payment. Before my husband started his own company, he worked for companies that provided him with cars for work. We didn't have to worry about car payments, upkeep, or gas. When he left his last job to pursue his dream of building his own business, we lost the second car. The timing could not have been more perfect, though. We had just started home school, and his office is only a short 10 minute drive away, so we didn't really NEED a second car. It is amazing how you can adapt your life to work more efficiently, when you are forced to take out a few conveniences in your day. At some point, we will add another car back into our household, but until then, we are plugging away with just one .
