List And Plan Errands To Save Gas

The night before you do shopping, errands, appointments, make a list of all of them and times of appointments and addresses. Then add the addresses and look at a map of city and plan accordingly, for example "Dr.'s appointment 10 am".

If you leave early, like taking kids to school you have a couple of hours to spare before appointment. Select all the errands you need to do in that area and get them done. This way you don't have to go back to that area, except to pick up kids and if you have errands you didn't get done. Do them with the kids or if they have school activities do those while waiting.

You don't retrace your steps and you save time and gas by plotting out your errand route. It also keeps stress down!

Since I have no children at home, I look for the time of the day that the traffic is lighter and the stores emptier. Helps with gas consumption and time.
