8. Take public transportation
Known as Pete Campbell on the famous TV show ‘Mad Men,’ Vincent Kartheiser can definitely afford a car. Still he prefers to use public transportation to commute. In 2010, he told The New York Times that he loves to travel using public transportation, rather than driving his own car. He says, “Instead of driving and being stressed out about traffic, you can work your scene, you can do your exercises or whatever on the bus.” In addition, he resides in a one-bedroom apartment. In fact, public transport can save you a lot of money by cutting down your parking and gas expenses, especially if you take your car every day.
