#121 – learn to parallel park

Learn to parallel park your car.  When you parallel park, make sure you aren’t too far from the curb.  Make sure you are parked legally.  Make sure you don’t leave too much space between you and the cars in front or behind you (only need to leave about 12″).  It is okay to gently tap the bumpers of the cars in front or behind you, just don’t smash into them or do any damage.  Practice makes perfect.  You should be proud when you master this skill!

#117 – use coupons

You don’t have to go crazy, but spending a few minutes searching for an online coupon code, using an offer received in the mail, or asking a sales clerk or checkout person if there are any discounts you are eligible for, could save you some money. If it takes too long to find an active code, or the process to get the discount is onerous, it may not be worth the aggravation, but a few seconds to save real dollars? Definitely worth it!
