Every Little Bit Counts... Right?

I reached the tipping point.  I've been driving to work so little I realized I should change my car insurance.  So I spoke to a very nice fellow at the agency to let him know that I'm no longer commuting 55 miles each way in my car, and that my anticipated annual mileage will drop correspondingly.

This will, it turns out, save me $4.68.  Every six months. 

I think you can buy a Starbucks coffee confection for that.

Ah, well. I added up the costs of commuting by car versus by train last year.  The train ride wins out hands down, even when you factor in the time spent riding the rails.
