Telecommute

Save money on your daily commute by putting down the car keys and firing up your computer. Telecommuting -- at least a few days a week – is an option that can save you time and money.

The expense of driving to work -- gas, tolls, wear and tear on your car -- can add up quickly. So, it should come as no surprise that telecommuting is growing in popularity.

"Telecommuting is obviously the cheapest form of travel for commuters," Ennis says. "The federal government actually considers telecommuting a travel mode and in terms of demand, it is one of the fastest-growing sectors."

Looking beyond finances, less time on the road means reduced risk of tardiness and automotive accidents. Plus, you'll have more time to spend working or engaging in other activities.
