Senseless Spending: Expensive Parking

Today we went to a board game event where you can play different board games to check which ones you like best and either buy them or put them on your wish list. We chose the latter. This event was hosted in another city so we took our car there. Upfront I told my husband we might park a bit further away from the site and either walk or bike up there. We have two foldable bikes. However, we were running late and decided not to go for our Mustachian plan, but park the car at the event. This decision cost us 10 euros which we could have avoided. Next time, we should plan properly.

Would you park your car a bit further away in order to save money?

    Absolutely. Parking is ridiculously expensive, and a sort of tax on laziness. Certainly, sometimes you have to compromise because of time, but I hate it when that happens.

    Most of the time. For most of the sporting events, concerts and conventions in our city, the parking rate varies from $5 to $20. You can get a $5 spot 4 to 5 blocks (each city block would be around 0.1 miles) away from the actual event, so you’re looking at a half-mile walk. On a summer afternoon, I will not hesitate to find the last available $5 spot, but on a winter night I will only park in the $20 spot (next to the venue).
