Maybe this time…

I tried the car sharing thing with City Car Share a few years ago.
The mileage is what killed it for me. If I’m paying by the hour then I’m going to try to shove as many errands into that time as possible but if I’m also paying for every single mile then I’m going to think of all the things I don’t need a car for and talk myself out of using the service at all.
And I still ended up with a monthly fee.
So no more City Car Share.
But now I’m thinking that I should try one of the other companies.
I mean it is a good idea. Especially for heavy grocery shopping.
Maybe ZipCar since it’s just a yearly fee and then a flat rate per hour.
I was talking with Renee and she said we could split the hourly rate and do planned trips to the grocery stores. It’s easier to stock up on flour and sugar when you have a car.
At least that’s the idea.
And I am still just thinking about it.
