Last week Mark sold his truck. With a possible (and 98% likely) move again in our future, and trying to finish our bathroom remodel, I believed Mark decided to sell in order to have just a tad more money to finish things up here.
Communication was not our strong point that weekend, when 20 minutes after he told me he was selling his truck we had a buyer willing to pay our full asking price. Mark’s reason for selling was to purchase a smaller more gas efficient car that could commute him the 2-3 hours north in search of a new job.
So for the moment we hit a crossroads. I was thrilled to be a 1 car family, and Mark kept browsing cars for sale. Although I am perfectly content for the time being owning 1 car, I know in the future it will come in handy to have 2 vehicles in this fast paced world. So I did what I always do at times like this – I thought about it!

We did one car for several years. On days I needed the car, I would drive my husband to work. It can work! It's been nice to have two cars now that the kids are older though, and I'm running them to preschool and stuff all the time.
It definitely can be done, you're right. The convenience of a 2nd car is nice though.
Good luck on this new venture! We're about to become a kind of sort of one car family over the summer–but not really. It's a long story, LOL! 😀
Well now I'm curious! lol
We did the one car thing for most of this past year. Not on purpose, but our cars seemed to take turns breaking down. It wasn't the most convenient thing to have to load up my little one to take my husband to school or work, but we survived just fine.
yeah, when he was leaving for work at 7am, and the kids were still sleeping, it would not have been fun! Funny thing though, Mark came home and showed me a car he found that we both actually like. We just may be back to 2 cars tomorrow, lol.
