Free Parking

We went to Chicago last week. John found a great hotel deal ($109 per night for a suite! with free breakfast! And free cocktail hour!). Unfortunately, parking was not included. The charge? $48/day. My excessively frugal (read: cheap) husband was not going to pay that without having a little drive around to see what else was out there. He drove around the block a few times, hoping for a cheaper garage option or a meter for overnight with garage parking the next day. What he found was even better —- street parking. He found probably the only spot with a missing meter in that section of Chicago —- FREE parking!

We could even see the van from our hotel room. We left her there, untouched, for 2 days saving us $96! Well….until we hit Michigan Ave.

Let’s just say we left our money in Chicago. And it was worth every penny!
