Fly with only a carry-on to avoid bag fees
Rather than paying baggage fees, Clark travels only with what an airline permits free as a single carry-on. With bag fees topping $75on some airlines under certain circumstances, following this advice can be a huge money-saver.
“Another plus is that I never worry about the airline losing my baggage,” Clark says.
Find free street parking
The penny-pincher abhors paying for parking. But you follow his lead on this advice at your own risk; his insistence on finding free street parking has backfired on him more than a few times.
“I often park in questionable areas where I can find free parking. My reward for being that cheap? Five smash-and-grabs through the years that have required me to replace the car window each time. I could have paid for a lot of parking at that rate. In fact, I’ve had vehicles broken into in four countries — Holland, Spain, Canada and here at home — because of my insistence on free parking.”
Clark says he once refused to pay $1 for parking in Appleton, Wisconsin, and went looking for free parking instead. Well, he wound up getting a $25 parking ticket when he violated an ordinance that didn’t allow parking from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. in the whole city of Appleton!
Another time, his parked rental care was crushed by falling debris when he opted for free street parking in Manhattan!
So, feel free to ignore this last tip if you are so inclined…
