I have found myself in a situation where I am paying for parking for work daily. It has been years since I paid for parking. My old employer covered our parking downtown and my other recent employer was in the suburbs. In both situations, parking was an expense I didn’t have to worry about. Situations and life changes quickly though. With this new expense on the horizon, I set out to minimize it. After all, as a Dividend Diplomat, we always try to make every dollar count. Finding parking took a few weeks and was frustrating, but after a while, I found a heck of a deal. The title of the article summarizes what happened. But here is the story about how I was able to save over $400 a year on parking.
Hello everyone! I wanted to be able to update one of life’s biggest monthly costs that I am chewing on – and that is – the cost of living in my house each and every month. Surprisingly it has been over 2 years since I have written about my payments that go out each month, and to show the community whether that has changed for better or for worse, even though I internally review this each and every month. I find more data and time interesting, as it can really tell how well you manage and how consistent you are able to keep with your management & money. Without further-ado here is my 2016 update to my housing expenses!
