Kickin' it Old School
Yeah. From the days of MC Hammer and The Beastie Boys, I'm bringing back another classic hit. The bicycle? Yes. Because when those songs came out, I would record them on my cassette recorder and jam to them on my Walkman as a rode my bike to my friend Mike's house 2 miles away wearing my acid wash denim shorts. I am re-living some of this as I have recently started biking more. Why? Because I'm 30 and getting a gut, but also to save on gas. I figured out that if I bike to my office (10 blocks away) every day instead of driving my car, I will save $2,400 per year! That is incredible if you think about it. A small change like this can alter your budget that much making you not only environmentally conscious, but also smart. What am I doing with the extra money? Saving up for a family vacation. What are you going to do with yours?
