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.

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.
