Well this is happening to us again. We will only have one vehicle to drive in our family. Last week my husband had an accident and he is not able to drive his truck. Having one car in a family can be a hassle and aggravating very much so. But it can also be beneficial to the family if really think about it.
The costs of only one car is cheaper because the amount of money needed for only one car. You only have to worry about things that may break on one car. Car insurance is cheaper for one car. That would be at least an extra $50 or more for insurance with 2 cars insured.
A family’s groceries costs are also lower as well. One may not see how this could even be possible. When I have car during the day, I am able to go to the store at any time and get things I am missing or need for dinner. Then most of the time when people go to the store they end up buying things on impulse that they may not really need so this is extra money spent. If I don’t have a car during the day, it will make do with what I have out of the pantry and freezer. So this makes a person really think what they while they are at the grocery store.
Because of having one car, I work on a night shift. So when my husband gets home from work I leave for work soon after. There is a benefit to working nights because of having one car, it is the extra money you make for working on the night shift.
Exercise is a benefit of having one vehicle at home. There is one store that is only a few blocks from our house. If I do need a few things and can’t wait I just take a bag and walk to the store. This is a good thing for me to be able to get out and get exercise. It can give a person some time to think as well while walking.
Having one car in a family may not be for everyone. But for some it is worth the extra money saved. Think about could stay home all day if you had to?
