As I pondered the cost of going to town (about $8 for this rural dweller), I realized that there are so many things I can do without ever leaving the comforts of my own home. All I need is the internet.
I can do my banking and pay my bills. Many banks offer online options that include online bill pay. This saves me money on postage. But when I do need to mail something, I can…
Get postage online. Using the United States Postal Service website, you can print your own postage or order stamps and have them delivered to your door. No need to rush off to the post office.
I can shop online. And it is amazing what you can find online. From groceries to personal care items to clothing and gifts, you can find whatever your heart desires and have it delivered to your door. And usually you can get a great deal on them, too.

I can earn money. By completing surveys, signing up for affiliate programs, and more. Read about ways I make money online here.
These are just some quick examples of things you can do using the internet to avoid spending money on gas.
